LOUISVILLE, Ky.—February 18, 2019—Haier is diversifying its product mix with the introduction of its first full-sized kitchen suite in the U.S. As the world’s leading appliance brand and owner of GE Appliances, a Haier company, had previously offered compact appliances for American consumers. With an ultra-sleek, minimalist vibe, the new Full-Sized Haier Kitchen Suite is ideally suited for modern spaces and contemporary design schemes found in many urban homes, high-rises, condos and mixed-use spaces—at a highly competitive price point.
The suite’s standout design element is the use of integrated handles throughout that make the refrigerator, dishwasher, range and over-the-range microwave more accessible and functional in smaller spaces, while creating flow and harmony when paired with modern-looking cabinetry and other finishes. On the dishwasher, the integrated handle also serves a dual purpose with a first-of-its-kind, light-up status bar.
“There’s nothing traditional about our first full-sized kitchen suite, and that’s a good thing,” said Brian Huston, brand director, Haier America. “As young professionals and downsizing adults flock to urban environments, many are looking for those clean lines and a contemporary aesthetic and connected features at an affordable price. This suite looks like nothing else on the market as it creates a subtle yet daring design with its unexpected appearance and features.”
The clean exterior is not to be outdone by the performance features and thoughtful design inside. The French-door refrigerator with bottom freezer features best-in-class 27-cubic-foot capacity and creates an experience when you open the doors. Haier opted to add an unexpected twist with a light-grey toned interior, blue tints and LED lighting to complete the contemporary look. The minimalist aesthetic stretches to the range, which features edge-to-edge viewing glass into the oven.
All appliances in the Full-Sized Haier Kitchen Suite are also WiFi-enabled for remote preheating and other convenient, time-saving features, offering yet another unexpected perk for the price point.
“We had a very special consumer in mind when designing this suite—one who craves simplicity but wants a personalized space that reflects his or her personality and zest for life,” Huston said. “It truly has a worldly inspired feel that we are proudly offering in the U.S. These appliances pair seamlessly with the Kitchen Hub from GE Appliances for a complete, modern kitchen.”
The Full-Sized Haier Kitchen Suite will be available in October 2019 and can be purchased in either a stainless or black stainless finish with product MSRPs ranging from $429 to $2,099. Visit www.haierappliances.com for more information about where to purchase.
