Modern Kitchen Appliances: Get the Latest Tech Trends

Phone featuring wolf appliances temperature control app

The way we live today is very different from how our grandparents–and even our parents–lived 30, 40, 50 years ago. Of course, this is due in large part to how much we now rely on technology as we go through our daily routines. 

Despite how much things have changed, one thing that’s stayed the same is that the kitchen is still the heart of the home. If you’re looking to enhance your space with modern kitchen appliances, Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove combine timeless luxury and legendary performance with the latest innovations for day-to-day comfort and convenience.

8 Innovations in Kitchen Technology

Here are eight innovations you’ll find in Sub-Zero, Wolf and Cove’s modern kitchen appliances:


  • Wi-Fi capabilities – Get the most out of your modern kitchen appliances with the easy-to-use Owner’s App. With just a few taps on your phone, you can preheat your oven, be notified if your refrigerator door is left open, or update the settings on your ice maker while you’re on the go. You can even look up what cooking method to use, get cleaning and maintenance tips, and schedule detergent orders.If you have an older model appliance, you can add Wi-Fi capabilities by using a connectivity kit.
  • Gourmet Mode – This “set it and forget it” feature, which you’ll find in both Wolf ranges and convection ovens, can save you valuable time and effort by taking the guesswork out of cooking. Whether you’re making pizza for your kids or prime rib for your dinner guests, your food will come out perfectly every time. Just choose one of the 50 chef-tested presets on the touch screen, and Gourmet Mode will do the rest.

  • Induction cooktops – The latest induction cooktops from Wolf are the most technologically advanced cooktops on the market today, combining precise high-to-low temperature control with superior energy efficiency. They offer 40% faster temperature response than gas or electric cooktops, so you can boil water faster, and get a more exact simmer for delicate dishes with almost zero wasted heat.
  • Dual VertiFlow™ convection system The peak of convection technology, this system allows Wolf convection ovens to deliver delicious and precise results every time. These ovens preheat faster than gas ovens and cook more consistently across all racks. The system also prevents flavor transfer, even when you’re using multiple racks at once–that means, you can put your garlic bread in with your cupcakes and not have to worry!


  • Touch screens Thanks to our phones, we use touch screens all day long, and now we can now use them to control our appliances, too. You’ll find touch screens across Wolf appliances like the convection steam oven, induction cooktop and range, dual fuel range, and wall oven, as well as the coffee systems. Touch screens offer a sleek appearance, are easy to clean, and they make programming a breeze.
  • Coffee systems – Far superior to others on the market, Wolf’s built-in coffee systems let you brew 15 different cafe-quality beverages right in the comfort of your kitchen. Using the full-color touch screen, you can quickly and easily customize each aspect of your beverage, and even program the favorite drinks of each member of your family to speed up your morning routine.
  • Food preservation systems Sub-Zero refrigerators use the latest in food preservation technology to keep food fresher and more flavorful for longer. Sub-Zero’s Split Climate™ intelligent cooling system continually optimizes the refrigerator’s temperature within one degree of the setting to keep foods cool and safe to eat.

    To extend the life of fruits and vegetables, Sub-Zero created an advanced air purification system by adapting technology originally pioneered by NASA for use in space shuttles. Every 20 minutes, this system scrubs the entire volume of air within the refrigerator, significantly reducing odors, viruses and bacteria, along with the ethylene gas that’s naturally emitted by fruits like tomatoes and apples.
  • Dishwasher Customization – Cove dishwashers offer completely flexible, high-capacity interiors for fast and efficient cleanup. You can adjust the three racks, rotate the tines and tilt the middle rack to effortlessly fit your bulkiest pots and pans alongside your finest China, and all will come out spotlessly clean. You can also pre-program wash and dry modes to maximize the three separate spray arms and 43 jets for precise results.
