Homeowners and remodelers Mark and Mina Fies of Synergy Design & Construction had an advantage when it came to appliance decisions for the kitchen they were remodeling in their Reston, Va., home. They have worked with hundreds of homeowners and design professionals since they started Synergy 13 years ago. “This time it was our turn. We had fun being on the other side of the experience,” says Mina, whose home is the focus of the 2021 Model ReModel project.
The couple knew they wanted JennAir products for their main appliance choices both for their functionality and striking Design Expressions that match the couple’s modern aesthetic.
The biggest decision for Mark and Mina was the kitchen focal point, which centered around the JennAir 48” RISE™ Professional Gas Range. The Fies chose the range because it is forged in mixed metals, detailed with stainless steel and brass, offers Wi-Fi connectivity, and two spacious ovens They located it within the large island in their main cooking zone so several people can gather to watch.
“Mark and I have always wanted a two-person kitchen where one person could be working on main dishes while the other could work on side dishes, sauces, and other entrees without getting in each other’s space,” says Mina.
In the secondary kitchen, they chose the JennAir Lustre Stainless Induction flex induction cooktop because of its nearly instantaneous cooking capability, as well as its energy-efficiency, a growing interest of many cooks. Beneath the cooktop, they placed JennAir’s 30-inch RISE™ V2™ Vertical Dual-Fan Convection Electric Wall Oven, which features Wi-Fi connectivity connecting to JennAir’s Culinary Center that guides users through time, temperature, and doneness options, three halogen lights, and flat tine easy glide out racks.
Another important JennAir purchase was their built-in refrigerator, the 36-inch RISE™ Counter-Depth French Door model in stainless with an external water and ice dispenser. The interior presents the stunning Obsidian Interior, exclusive to JennAir, and has Twin Fresh™ technology, which keeps food fresher longer, plus, it maintains interior temperature to within a half degree. As a finishing touch, the Fies chose JennAir’s ultra-silent 38dBA level RISE™ TriFecta™ wash dishwasher with three glide out racks, and spacious stainless steel illuminated interior.
