No matter the brand, ranges cook. Refrigerators store. Sure, the daily functions of these must-have household products are largely universal—but that doesn’t mean every kitchen appliance was made equal. That’s why when it comes to creating a custom kitchen that exudes sophistication, functionality, and cutting-edge design, choosing the right appliances is key.

Now more than ever, large luxury kitchen goods—specifically ranges and refrigerators—can be a steep investment, and we at Midwest Home want to help you choose the perfect pick. Whether you’re waffling between the precision of Miele, the elegance of Molteni, or the artisanal craftsmanship of La Cornue, check out these deluxe, off-the-beaten-path brands on the cusp of culinary excellence.

Hallman Industries

Hallman Industries offers a stunning range of premium refrigerators, dishwashers, ventilation hoods, gas ranges, and more—effortlessly blending high style with performance. This cabin project by Chisel Architecture, Lucy Interior Design, Saw Horse Construction, and Ingrained Wood Studios features one of Hallman’s exceptional appliances—a small, yet stylish white gas range—in its 55-square-foot kitchen space. The range is perfect for tight spaces that call for basic (and beautiful!) kitchen functionality. Choose among various widths, six colors, several trim options, and between four to eight burners. hallmanindustries.com

ILVE’s ranges, perhaps most widely known for their Majestic II and Nostalgie series, feature powerful brass burners for precise cooking control and a touch of vintage flair with unique finishes. This Italian-crafted range, with multifunction ovens and customizable options, is on display in an Edina home by Home Design by Annie and Frontier Structures. The sleek range is balanced by a patterned backsplash, playing with neutral, earth-like tones that contribute to a clean, elegant kitchen design. ilveusa.com

La Cornue

From color choices to materials, La Cornue offers a level of customization that allows homeowners to express their personal style through their kitchen centerpiece. In this kitchen by Rehkamp Larson Architects and Welch Forsman Associates, the CornuFé’s five brass burners, spacious 70-liter gas oven, and multifunction convection oven delivers impressive versatility. A complementary Paonazzo slab behind the range, with the same marble waterfalling down the island, completes the look. Choose from stunning finishes like Gloss Black or Royal Blue and elevate your kitchen with this French masterpiece that marries performance with style and durability. lacornue.com

Molteni’s custom stoves redefine culinary sophistication, offering a bespoke cooking space. Crafted with precision and tailored to individual specifications, these ranges seamlessly integrate advanced technology, exclusive materials, and artisanal craftsmanship.

Monogram’s full-size refrigerators, such as those in the Statement and Minimalist Collections, showcase unrivaled luxury—especially when expertly paneled like the one in this Che Bella Interiors Design + Remodeling kitchen in Burnsville.

Sub-Zero and Wolf

Renowned for its state-of-the-art refrigeration systems, Sub-Zero (perhaps one of the more popular names on this list) takes preservation to the next level, while Wolf, the companion brand to Sub-Zero, specializes in professional-grade cooking appliances, including ranges, ovens, and cooktops. This Kate Roos Design and Partners 4, Design kitchen—which features a refreshed palette and updated finishes that are decidedly modern, but with a soft, feminine sensibility—showcases the sleek, modern look of a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer. These larger sets are perfect for big families or aspiring chefs who love to cook. Choose from Classic, Designer, or Pro series, among myriad other customization options. subzero-wolf.com


It’s important to note this list is certainly not exhaustive: Be sure to research AGA, Bertazzoni, Gaggenau, Thermador, or Viking for additional ideas. Stay up to date and visit online for the latest updates and soon-to-be released product lines, and when making your final selects, don’t learn the hard way: Read reviews and always measure twice.
