BENTON HARBOR, Mich., March 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Built on an appetite for innovation, for the past 100 years KitchenAid has developed appliances that provide makers with new ways to explore and experiment.

The new Digital Countertop Oven and the Dual Convection Countertop Oven each can fit a 9x13 inch baking pan, allowing for more space to create and cook.

"Our new countertop ovens give makers the ability to bake, broil, grill, toast and so much more.

These ovens were designed to give makers even more possibilities in the kitchen."
