Not only has Amiel created the most comprehensive luxury kitchen appliance showroom in the GTA, he has transformed the typical showroom with a design aimed to both educate and entertain his discerning designer clientele.

While representing a multi-generational appreciation of the kitchen, Amiel brings a youthful fresh eye to the often traditional world of appliances.The new showroom has been designed to take guests on a carefully crafted hands-on tour through Europe and North America’s top luxury brands.

“Bringing a progressive and top of the line appliance offering to Ontario has been a labour of love,” says Amiel, Marketing and Business Development manager for Distinctive Appliances Inc.

Viking’s progressive D3 series offers the utmost in currency and fashion with a kitchen that changes colour in as much time as it takes to get a manicure. Handle and knobinserts on fridges, dishwashers, and ranges are available in a variety of progressive colours that can easily be changed in less than half an hour, giving the kitchen a whole new look.

The Assistant oven from Bertazzoni cleverly remembers the time your soufflé came out just right and will do it again and again, with its “save cook-cycle” feature. With a built in LCD touch screen and Venetian glass handle, Bertazzoni’s The Assistant oven has both beauty and brains.
