Built-in kitchen appliances

Retailers claim that sales of high-tech appliances that are built into furniture are showing rapid growth today.

Built-in appliances for the kitchen are several types.

Types of built-in kitchen appliances

Built-in washing machine

Many people are mistaken if they believe that the washing machine should be located only in the bathroom. This is an obvious stereotype, but not unreasonable. Not every kitchen has a place for such a much needed home appliance. In connection with these facts, built-in washing machines are represented by a small assortment, but devices can be easily bought in online stores or large network markets.

The functionality of the washers sewn into the furniture is exactly the same as that of the free-standing ones (except for models with vertical loading, for obvious reasons). The devices can also boast of increased capacity – from eight to twelve kilograms (for comparison, the full-size ones have a maximum of 8 kg). In Russian stores, built-in washers are represented by such companies: BEKO, Bosh, Whirpool, Elextrolux, Zanussi, etc. For example, one of the available models – BEKO WMI 71241, will cost the new owner about 28 thousand rubles..

Built-in dishwasher

This segment of the household appliances market, on the contrary, prevails as devices sewn into the kitchen set (75-85% of the volume). There are two types of built-in dishwashers:

  1. With closed control – the panel of the plate is displayed on the edge of the furniture door (accessibility only in the open position).
  2. With open control – the panel is located at the top of the door.

Dishwashers can be compact (height – 50 cm, width – 55-60 cm), narrow (height – up to 1 m, width – 40 cm) or standard-sized (height – 90 cm, width – 60-65 cm). Depending on the size, the devices contain a different number of sets of utensils – comp. – 6-7, narrow. – 8-10, and full size. – up to 15 sets. In stores you can find such manufacturing companies: BEKO, Hansa, Indesit, Hotpoint-Ariston, etc. The price of all brands is different, for example, Indesit DIS 1147 is found in stores within the range of 16,000-18,000 rubles..

The most common type of equipment in the kitchen, which occupies a leading position in sales in the market, is built-in ovens.

Separate topics for analysis deserve built-in hobs, which can be either gas (standard or gas on glass), and electric (induction glass-ceramic or classic cast-iron heaters), and less commonly combined. The width of such devices is often of an international standard – 60 cm, but there are exceptions (elongated versions of 75 or 90 cm). Prices for cooktops for the kitchen range from 67 thousand rubles to 150, depending on the type of heat energy supply, manufacturing company and manufacturing materials.

Coffee machine

Coffee lovers will definitely like this appliance, but this technique is not cheap. Siemens, Smeg, Miele are leading manufacturers of embedded coffee machines. Some models of the listed brands can make coffee either from natural beans or from capsules, and the functionality is also different: adjustment of strength, temperature, quantity, the ability to choose different types of hot drink, the presence of an independent diagnostics of the device (indication of empty water / milk tank, container with waste pressed material, etc.).

Sets of built-in appliances for the kitchen

Sometimes appliances mounted in kitchen furniture are sold in whole sets. The most popular option is an oven and hob. The main feature is the dependence of the constituent apparatuses on each other. For example, the controls of the oven and burners can be on the same panel – this is very convenient. The biggest plus of sets of built-in appliances for the kitchen is the price is much lower than if everything was bought separately. Minus – if any of the combined devices breaks (for example, a temperature indicator), with a high probability it will be necessary to change everything together.
