German cooking appliance maker Küppersbusch announced that it has been selected as Best Product of the Year 2003 by a juried competition sponsored by Architectural Record magazine.
A jury of six architects and product designers judged more than 3,000 product entries for their problem-solving attributes, as well scale, balance, and aesthetics. Out of the 100 finalists, Küppersbusch was selected for the EEB 9800 and 6800 Simply Digital Oven featuring the patented Okotherm Catalytic Conviction and the Profi-Cook Center featuring Pan-Detection and the "Touch-Me" sensor technology.
"This is an honor and a privilege to be recognized by such an esteemed panel of judges," Kevin Henry, director of Kuppersbusch USA, said in a statement announcing the award. "Kuppersbusch would continue its 129-year tradition of pushing the envelope at every opportunity to create proprietary design solutions and exclusive product details."
