LAS VEGAS, Jan. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Frigidaire Professional® and Scott McGillivray, host of HGTV's "Income Property," unveiled a sleek new Built-In Line of professional-grade appliances, designed to easily and seamlessly improve the look, feel, and performance of the kitchen.

The introduction of the Built-In Line comes on the heels of a successful launch of Frigidaire Professional® in 2015, continuing its more than 90-year legacy of creating innovative, first-of-its-kind home appliances. The new line, comprised of Wall Ovens, Cooktops, Ventilation, Refrigerators and Freezers, adds sleek, built-in options to the existing suite of professionally-inspired appliances designed for consumers who are looking for a professional-grade kitchen.

Research has shown that there is an underserved market of consumers who want professional appliances, but don't own them today. The size of this market accounts for 18 percent of the mass/mass premium appliance market. This target is specifically interested in professional appliances due to the performance they offer, the look they offer their overall kitchen, and the durability that they offer. However, they're not willing to buy traditional professional appliances either due to the cost, time, or their lifestage.    

"I work with clients every day looking for kitchen appliances with simple controls and innovative technology to make their lives easier without sacrificing the built-in look they are after," said Scott McGillivray, Real Estate Expert, Host of HGTV's Income Property and Frigidaire Professional® spokesperson. "The new Frigidaire Professional® Built-In Line fits the bill with an integrated aesthetic that can easily fit into any style of kitchen and the Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel that makes cleaning a breeze."

The new Frigidaire Professional® Built-In Line delivers power, consistency, and freshness in a timely fashion, so consumers can prepare great tasting meals for family and friends every day. The new line includes:

  • The Built-In Double and Single Wall Ovens with a PowerPlus Convection that ensures evenly cooked dishes, every time, with PowerPlus Convection Bake and Roast
  • The Built-In Gas and Electric Cooktops which boast the PowerPlusBurner which boils, sears and sautés with power using 18,000 BTU every time
  • The Built-In Induction Cooktop uses PowerPlus Induction Technology to boil water in less than two minutes, offering the speed, control, and consistency of gas, without requiring an expensive remodel to convert your kitchen from electric to gas
  • The Built-In Ventilation provides a PowerPlus 3-Speed Fan with powerful air flow at three different speeds, quietly moving up to 400 cu. ft. of air per minute
  • The Built-In All Refrigerator and Built-In All Freezer use the PureAir Ultra® Filtration System to remove up to seven times more odor than baking soda
  • The appliances come in Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel that resists fingerprints and cleans easily

In 2016, Frigidaire Professional® will introduce the following new built-in appliances:
