The Best Luxury Kitchen Brands for 2023 and Beyond Apkmusk

Designers and real estate experts agree that Sub-Zero and Wolf are still the luxury kitchen brands most sought-after in homes today. And there’s good reason. They offer a heritage of quality and innovation unsurpassed in the appliance industry and provide features and lifestyle benefits that are key to discerning homeowners in 2023 and beyond. If you’re researching luxury kitchen brands in New England, you’re in luck, because Clarke, New England’s Official Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove Showroom and Test Kitchen has three locations where you can see and compare more models of these appliances than anywhere else. Clarke isn’t an appliance store, it’s a brand resource where you can explore these appliances in designer kitchen settings to imagine how they might look in your own home. Clarke consultants are not salespeople. In fact, they don’t sell anything at Clarke, but they do offer private tours to help you research the best technology for your new home or kitchen remodel. While browsing a Clarke Showroom, you’ll probably encounter a Clarke Chef who will share a taste of what these appliances can create.

A History of Engineering Marvels

In the 1930s, Westye Bakke was hired by Frank Lloyd Wright to design custom refrigeration for the legendary architect’s homes. In 1945, Bakke launched Sub-Zero Freezer Company, introducing the first system for preserving food at ultra-low temperatures…literally sub-zero. A decade later, he pioneered dual refrigeration creating separate sealed systems for refrigerator and freezer, revolutionizing kitchen design by inventing built-in refrigeration. In every decade since, Bakke’s now world-class design and engineering company has introduced a new innovation. Refrigerator drawers, Integrated refrigerators that disappear behind cabinet panels, wine storage, induction ranges and much more.

In 2000, Sub-Zero acquired the residential side of Wolf, a industry-leading commercial range manufacturer. They have given the cooking appliance company new life with iconic gas ranges, dual-fuel ranges, induction cooktops, convection steam ovens and so much more. Through Sub-Zero and Wolf’s nearly 80 years, many appliance companies have come and gone, but Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove (their newest division focused on dishwashers) have stood the test of time and proven to be the best luxury kitchen brands in the U.S. and beyond.

According to Architect Bob Borson in his “Life of an Architect” website, “ I am going to confess that if I won the appliance lottery, I would select Sub-Zero Wolf appliances.”
