The Rotary Club has awarded prizes to homeowners who opted for modern themes this year in their 11th annual "Home of Distinction" Tour, reports San Louis Obispo's The Tribune. Special emphasis seemed to focus on everyone's favorite room: the kitchen.
"When you entertain, everyone ends up in the kitchen, so we wanted a lot of room," featured homeowner Marilyn Siverson told the news source.
The Siverson family hosts a lot of gatherings, which means they need to cook up a lot of food before their guests arrive. That's why they equipped their home with a state-of-the-art commercial range, in addition to lots of pull-out shelving to hold their impressive cookware collection.
Installing commercial ranges in private homes is a growing trend. Not only do they offer more room on the range-top, but they have more power and enable home chefs to reach just the right temperature for any dish.
Commercial ovens in the home are also becoming a popular choice, for those who have the space. Home cooks can create quality artisan breads and pizza doughs using these professional stand-bys.
