Virginia Tech will showcase its newly refurbished Center for Real Life Kitchen Design, a 1500-square foot space that incorporates six kitchens that reflect a variety of price levels, lifestyles and use of space. This unique facility is used for both undergraduate and graduate classes, and continuing education programs.
The Center features a completely redesigned gourmet kitchen, which has been outfitted with all new products. The center also has a totally new outpost kitchen and a renovated and updated family kitchen. In addition, the center has a contemporary kitchen, a small starter kitchen, a laundry area, and a home office.
Featured applicances include many of the latest cooking, dishwashing and refrigeration technologies with high tech electronic control systems. New products include a microwave drawer, a French door refrigerator with bottom drawer freezer, a coffee center, a high-power multifunctional burner/wok, an induction-cooking module, and a drawer-style dishwasher. The center has also added a resource center that includes a kitchen and bath design library.
