They really went all out with the drinks too. I have to tell you nothing is more refreshing than a nice cool drink from a horse trough.

Actually they had a great feed and lots of real drinks.


Idea For Seating

idea-for-seating

This is not super new but it is something that needed a showing. The dining area is located between the island and the back wall. It does close off the island traffic, but you are able to seat guests and family close to the cooking area. In this way no one will ever miss a meal and hot food will always be at your finger tips!!!


New Dividers

These are the new dividers from Leicht. They are a very nice option. The wood panels have a pair of set screws that tightens the panel to the wooden platform. Once they are tightened they hold very well. They can also be unscrewed. This makes it easy to change configurations. It also gives you more options as your kitchen matures and you buy more pots, plates and pans.

God knows we all need more stuff!!

enter-1

This was the entrance to one of the most interesting kitchen and bath displays I have ever seen. It was located in an old castle surrounded by a moat! There were 15 groups of presenters, including Miele, Blanco, Warendorf (This used to be Miele’s kitchen cabinet company), Allmilmo and a cast of thousands!!!

If you can’t find a reason to comment on this group I will lose all hope that you are really reading this blog.


Who Is This Guy??

who-is-this

This guy showed up on one of the tours. No one knew who he was. I am pretty sure he was a coffee cup designer. He spent the better part of an hour explaining how wonderful his new cup handle was. I don’t know about you KITCHEN HIPSTERS but I couldn’t care less about the mathematics of a coffee cup handle and I really didn’t see much of a change from last years display. I was really pretty bored but didn’t want to miss the buffet table and the booze so I kept my mouth shut.
