    Many features common in today's kitchen started out in restaurants, including high-powered gas burners and the industrial look of stainless steel. Manufacturers are continuing to turn to professional kitchens for inspiration, as evidenced by the latest generation of pro-grade appliances aimed at the residential market.

You'll have to pay a premium for these slick new wares, so we also offer lower-priced alternatives from Consumer Reports' appliance Ratings that give you similar performance for less.
