WTioii installed with other built-in appliance components— such as the wall refrigerator and the built-in wall oven—the electric kitchen center makes the completely built-in customized electric kitchen a reality for homes in the fifteen thousand dollar to twenty thousand dollar 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 design. Home experts feel that the , strong treri.d toward open kitchens and built-in kitchens has now spread from the high-price, cus- torn-built home to become a definite influence on mass housing methods. The growui of mass production building methods and the growing popularity of the prefabricated house have also given rise to the need for "packaged" kitchen units which can be installed simply and easily. The riew electric kitchen center meets 'his need, and at the same time fulfills the new concept of kitchen design in which appliances and architecture-are integrated. The individual appliance com- cooking. , All the built-in appliance components are grouped under an eight and one-half foot heavy - duty restaurant - type seamless stainless steel top containing a sink bowl and four high-speed flush - mounted cooking units. In the beveled back- splash panel behind the sink is mounted a one-control faucet. At the right of the sink is a portable appliance plug-in panel with fcur receptacles, including one that is controlled by the flush- mcuntcd timer. Thus such items as toaster, electric coffee maker and radio can be plugged in right on tlae unit. A high-wattage gri.ddle 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 ap-! pliances, a plastic trash basket, n towel rack, a shelf for cleaning pcw.ders and a' potato and onion bin. A simplified plumbing and electric connection is located at the base of the sink. Timeless Siyling. Styling on the electric kitchen center was aimed at utmost simplicity and timelcssness of line. There is no danger of any section of the unit looking "dated" as the years pass by. Individual appliances in the center pull out separately for easy servicing. It is the intention that future models of the appliance compon- Beautiful House Plan flow wall-less homes.
