New Products

Every year in April there is a new appliance show in Boxborough. This year was somewhat sparse, because we are almost four years in a recession. Manufacturers have decreased their R&D and focused on their core competencies.

There were a few kernels of innovation:

Big winner: Frigidaire induction slide-in with convection and warming drawer

Second Place: GE 20 cubic foot french door

Distant Third: AGA 36 inch professional


  1. The Frigidaire appears to be hybrid cooktop not full induction.

  2. A distinction which will be covered today

  3. Anonymous5:20 PM

    what's so special about the GE french door & aga range?

  4. Nothing much...GE will break LGs lock on smaller french door refrigerators, so prices should drop

    The AGA is nice looking and relatively inexpensive

    But yeah, it was uninspiring
