New Zealand-Designed Appliances for Every Kitchen Aesthetic, From Fisher & Paykel

February 18, 2021

Choosing kitchen appliances is hard enough. Should you go with gas or electric? A double-door or stacked fridge? What size dishwasher do you need? And that’s all before considering how your appliances will actually look in your kitchen.

Enter Fisher & Paykel, the New Zealand-based appliance brand that’s been creating design-forward appliances for all over the house since 1934. Their luxury designs are not only built to last and made of quality materials; each is created with “human-centered design” in mind, meaning every detail is tuned towards making hard-working appliances that are a pleasure to use.

And aesthetics are a central part of this process. Fisher & Paykel’s appliances are designed to fit into and complement your space and style—not stick out like the bulky, unsightly appliances of yesteryear. With their “Beauty of Choice” ethos, homeowners, remodelers, and designers alike can choose styles and configurations according to their own space and design preferences to create functional, top-performing kitchens where the appliances are part of the appeal.

Choose from one of Fisher & Paykel’s five design styles for a look that’s streamlined or standout, subtle or statement-making.

Serious home cooks and those looking to get chef-worthy results at home, the Professional line is for you. These appliances take cues from their commercial kitchen heritage with robust proportions, stainless steel, and a construction that’s built to withstand heavy-duty cooking. The cooktops feature high-BTU burners for extra power, plus continuous grates for sliding cookware around safely and easily. The refrigerators are fabricated from high quality stainless steel and feature signature Professional style handles; ventilation products are also available.

The Classic kitchen appliance range makes a statement, with quality in every detail—a heritage aesthetic and visual charm meets modern performance. Go with Classic if you want your appliances to be a focal point in your kitchen. You can also choose by color for extra character and eclecticism.

Fisher & Paykel’s Contemporary kitchen appliances have a timeless look, with sleek profiles, balanced proportions, craftsmanship-level quality, and clean lines that convey simplicity and purity. Used together, a suite of Contemporary appliances effortlessly gives the full kitchen a considered, streamlined, pulled-together look.

Look no further, minimalists: The Minimal line of appliances is designed to blend seamlessly into the kitchen, with single-color palettes, simple lines, and a sense of refinement and design clarity. They also have subtle tone-on-tone and textural elements, to understated and sophisticated effect. Minimal-style appliances work well with Integrated designs, allowing for easy incorporation of both.

Last but not least is the Integrated kitchen appliance style, ideal for uber-minimalists and those tight on kitchen space. The designs in this collection take on the materiality of the kitchen, disappearing seamlessly into the design, with minimal gaps and proportions that sit flush with cabinetry. The result? A kitchen that has a singular aesthetic vision uninterrupted by contrasting appliances—but with all the power and top performance of Fisher & Paykel tucked in unobtrusively.

The drawer’s temperature can be changed at the push of a button, so that it can be used as refrigerator, freezer, pantry, chiller, or wine storage—and it’s fronted here with a custom panel, so it cleverly blends into the cabinets when closed.
