In case you haven’t heard the good news, I am a Hestan Design Partner! Part of my work with the team at Hestan means that our kitchen is getting renovated to accommodate the Hestan suite of appliances. Watching the Hestan team spend years working alongside America’s most celebrated chefs, I can’t wait to use the new appliances in concert with Hestan Culinary cookware to experience their award-winning innovation. With the renovation, we have re-imagined our own kitchen space, incorporating double islands and plenty of space for dishes, silverware, linens and wine—all of our favorite things! This kitchen will give us more precision, more inspiration, more joy and effortless cooking capabilities to support our lifestyle. Hestan was built to meet the needs of the most demanding chefs and we look forward to cooking among them.

The signature MarquiseAccented™ Handle, soft close door styles, precision cooking and chilling is truly amazing. When selecting our appliances we went to Purcell Murray to experience all of them in person. While they were amazing to see at KBIS, they were even better when fully lit up at the San Francisco showroom. Here is what we have selected and a few reasons of what drew us to the products.
