That "Lived-In" Look
|When we said fully functional, we meant it. Once on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., we will give our house that "lived-in" look by washing towels, running showers, watching movies, and cooking meals for our solar neighbors.
The kitchen, in particular, is practically brimming with technological, and space saving surprises at every drawer and cabinet. Most noticeable are the kitchen's appliances that are all Energy Star rated, for top-end efficiency.
An induction cook top utilizes the power of magnets to deliver energy directly into magnetic metal cookware, ensures the electricity used to cook your meal is used only to cook your meal. This means the stove surface never becomes hot itself, eliminating household accidents and energy waste associated with adjusting cooking temperature or heating the air surrounding a pot.
|Below the cook top is our Thermador "trivection" oven, which rides the cusp of cooking technology by allowing us to combine traditional oven cooking, convection cooking, and microwave cooking to achieve excellent results in a fraction of traditional cooking times. Never thought you could cook a fully turkey in 20 minutes? Think again.|
Additionally, the Ripple Home utilizes a state-of-the-art dishwasher that senses the cleanliness of the load and constantly adjusts cycle times to save time, energy, and money. A refrigerator with a top-mounted cooling unit ensures excess heat does not re-enter the unit, while a "smart" clothes washing machine eliminates excess water usage by automatically adjusting water levels depending on the nature of the clothing load. All appliances are readily available, and though they are highly technologically advanced, they are comfortable and easy to use.
