The new kitchen at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s country home of Anmer Hall in Norfolk will reportedly be filled with American and German-built stainless steel units and appliances.
According to a report in the Daily Mail on July 5, products include a giant fridge-freezer from US firm Sub-Zero & Wolf, a Wolf double oven with (separately) five induction rings on a black ceramic hob, plus a Dornbrachte Unit chrome sink.
On the housewares side, the list includes a Dualit four-slice toaster in silver, a KitchenAid mixer, a set of hand-made Sabatier Perrier knives from France, a quick-boil kettle, a £1,000 state of the art coffee maker, crystal and glassware from William Yeoward and a silver Nutribullet blender.
Meanwhile, the laundry room has a professional Blanca Press for sheets and a Tubie Ironing Machine for trousers and shorts. This is a hands-free German gadget that is said to be able to iron a shirt by itself in seven minutes.
Food writer Rose Prince commented: “Kate’s country kitchen will often need to be used semi-professionally for large parties. So that’s why they will have gone for stainless steel, polished stone and lots of gadgetry. She’s sensibly going for modern, state of the art cooking appliances.”
