Identity Crisis?


What is stainless steel? When it comes to appliances stainless steel is considered a color. It really is a finish, a very popular finish, but not everyone loves stainless steel. Avoiding stainless steel for new appliances isn’t always black and white.  There are shades of grey and red and blue and green and…..


With stainless, more and more we get the fingerprint complaint. Yes, stainless does show finger prints more readily than painted finishes. If you have been licking your fingers after scraping the cake batter bowl you will most likely be leaving a sticky mess on any finish, no matter what color.  Not everyone has the dexterity to touch only the handle so when visiting our customers we do often see fingerprints at kid heights or even nose prints at Labrador retriever height.


For years, Viking Range Corp has offered special order finishes in several colors.  BlueStar is famous for their ranges but now has a great line-up of cooktops, ovens and hoods as well. The BlueStar name came into being when Prizer Painting (yes, a paint company) purchased the residential division of restaurant range manufacturer.  So it’s no surprise that a special order of a new BlueStar can arrive in nearly any color as well as a variety of metal finishes. We mentioned KitchenAid’s new Black Steel a few weeks ago (Link to KitchenAid’s “Black Steel My Heart” Blog); many of our customers think it looks awesome. Blue Star Color WheelIf color alone won’t meet your design requirements, check out the classic designs of AGA’s CookerLa Cornue’s French design, and Viking’s Tuscany SeriesVent-A-Hood goes a step further and doesn’t just offer traditional, classic and modern hoods in stainless steel and painted finishes, but allows special orders on their hoods in brass or copper with custom applied metallic trims.  Go crazy with it! In keeping with our tradition of being the best appliance dealer in Central Florida, Aggressive Appliances has all of these products on display with the exception of Viking Tuscany due in soon.  Don’t pass up the chance to see the Duck Egg Blue Aga, three different La Cornue ranges, and two custom Vent-a-Hoods.

La Cornue



Aggressive Appliances displays many of the world’s most elite appliances. Within our showroom walls clients often learn about new appliance innovations or see something they didn’t know existed. One such prestigious brand we have on display here in our showroom is La Cornue.

Who are they? What is it? What can they bring to us within our own home kitchens?


If you can, try to picture Paris in 1908. Gas lighting illuminates the streets. Then imagine a food connoisseur and craftsman, passionate about technology. His focus….how to capture gas indoors for delicious French cooking. It was in this environment Albert Dupuy conceptualized and created his first gas powered oven.

While it was common to use a vaulted ceiling within hearth cooking, Dupuy took this idea and designed a vaulted ceiling oven powered by gas. The curvature of the oven shape allowed heat to flow in circular rotations, dropping and falling within the oven, creating a natural convection with exceptional baking and roasting results.

LCrangesAs the line matured, so did their offerings. Their cooktop configurations feature such choices as French plaques, gas lava-rock grills, power burners, electric plates, and gas burners. The features of why this line is a stand out product are best answered here in their FAQ section. The artistry of the line is really beautiful. You have to really see the care put into the design of their ovens. The attention to detail in every facet of these works of culinary art is at a level not seen before.

With options ranging to over $48700, physically seeing the line demonstrates why they are able to command this price level. They have options beginning at $6800 allowing every chef the opportunity to experience La Cornue’s fine culinary attention to workmanship and design.
