The center, which con tains e combination washer-dry- ef, a disposal^equipped sink, an automatic dishwasher and an : electric rahge complete with storage drawer—«11 mounted under one stainless steel counter— 'may be placed as,a single installation in any type of kitchen. When installed with other built-in appliance components— ' such as '•the wall refrigerator -and the built-in wall oven—the electric kitchen center makes the cimpletely built-in customized electric kitchen a reality for ! homes in the fifteen thousand dollar to twenty thousand dollar i price range. : Result of Research. ' Development of the electric , kitchen center and integral built', in appliances, such as the wall ".refrigerator and built-in.. oven, •has resulted from 'a continuing , research program on kitchen de' sign. Home experts feel that the «' strong trer-d toward open kitch- • ens and built-in kitchens has now J spread from.'the high-price, cus- , torn-built home to become a def' inite influence on mass housing 1 methods. The growth of mass production .building methods and the growing popularity of the ... prefabricated house have also given rise to the'nfeed for"packaged" kitchen units which can be installed simply and easily. The - new electric kitchen center meets •'his need,' and at..tine 1 same time fulfills the new concept of kitch- ! en design in which appliances jot kitchen activities in one con venient place—laundry, food preparation, dishwashing and cooking. All the built-in appliance components are grouped under: airi eight and one-half foot heavy - duty restaurant - type seamless stainless steel top containing a sink bowl and four high-speed flush - mounted cook- ing'units. In the s beveled back- splash panel, behind the sink is mounted a one-control faucet. At the right of the sink is a porta* bio appliance plug-in panel with fcur receptacles,, including one that is controlled by the flush>mounted timer. Thus such items as toaster, electric coffee maker and radio can be plugged in right on the unit. A high-wattage gri.ddlc plugs in beside the surface cooking units. A pull-out cutting board is located at the left of the sink. A—lighted storage compartment under the sink contains circuit breakers for the individual appliances, ' a plastic trash basket, a towel rack, a shelf for cleaning powders and a potato and onion bin. A simplified plumbing and electric connection is located at the base of the sink. Timeless Styling. Styling on the electric kitchen center was aimed at utmost simplicity and .timelessness of line. There is no danger of any section of the unit looking "date.d" as the .years pass by. Individual appliances in the center pull out separately for easy servicing. ; -'56' fiow ;wall4ess ftetmes.
