This pork tenderloin is great for entertaining but easy enough to make on a weeknight. Brining the meat will keep it moist and juicy, and the cilantro pesto adds a burst of pure flavor to take the dish to the next level.

Let there be light!

French door refrigerators are the rage today. Everyone loves the experience of opening those double-doors and seeing a wide, unobstructed view of the contents of their fridge. Those panoramic views of your boxed wine and party trays are often enhanced by a collection of LED spot lights mounted in tiny “pucks” built into the side walls of the refrigerator case. So dramatic is the presentation that we’ve actually witnessed homeowners hum a heavenly choral tune while opening their fridge doors.

We decided to take this experience to the next level with our new Monogram French Door Bottom Freezer by embedding a row of LED’s directly into each of the four adjustable glass shelves. This not only creates the visual drama worthy of a Paul Mottram movie soundtrack, it more effectively distributes lighting throughout the entire refrigerator space.

Wait a minute: there are LED lights embedded in adjustable glass shelves? So how do they plug in and yet remain adjustable up and down in the refrigerator?

Sally and Justin got together in the Design Studio and figured it out. They created an electrical circuit that employs the metal bracket that holds the shelves as a low voltage “bus” and couple it with a tiny prong at the end of each of the 4 adjustable shelves.

Is your refrigerator illuminating your food in its best possible light? Are such gastronomical theatrics worth it? We’d like to know.

Kitchen Stories: Let’s Get Small
by Lou Lenzi, Director of Industrial Design for GE Appliances 

I’m dating myself with the Steve Martin reference, but that phrase will resonate with at least one of the two customer segments driving the shift towards smaller living spaces. 

While most trend spotters attribute these smaller confines to “urbanization” (the migration from the suburbs to urban centers) and the millennial generation, we can’t forget the 75 million strong Baby Boomers entering retirement, emptying the nest, downsizing, right-sizing, remodeling, or taking to the road.

Smaller living spaces – whether they’re micro apartments in city centers, vacation homes, casitas, or even RV’s - required us to fundamentally rethink appliance design. We couldn’t simply shrink today’s products down in size and honestly say we’ve met our customer’s needs. We went back to the drawing board to develop a new appliance form factor that would be compact, space efficient, and extremely flexible. We also knew our customer wouldn’t tolerate a product that doesn’t possess the latest thinking in technology and usability.

The result is a modular, easy to configure, customizable system. The base module is 24” wide and follows industry standard conventions for counter top height and counter top depth. It employs a drawer-based system for easy access and a smaller overall footprint, however, we utilize hinged doors where appropriate.

Have a look at our MicroKitchen and MicroLaundry concepts. Imagine going on-line, configuring your ideal kitchen, placing the order, and having it delivered in one piece to your micro-space.

Whether you’re a boomer, millennial, gen-x, y, or z, we’d love to hear your thoughts. Should we get small?
