The Discovery 30-inch Fully Integrated Refrigerator enables home chefs to store ingredients at the perfect humidity and temperature for optimal preservation. By using state-of-the-art exterior Glass Touch control, refrigerator compartments can be precisely adjusted in two zones, including one that adjusts from freezing to refrigerating temperatures.

The Renaissance Self-Cleaning Range features dual-stacked burners—the ultimate in range-top control. These high-performing burners can easily transition from searing at high temperatures to simmering and melting at ultra-low temperatures. The oven cell includes a three-part convection system and an infrared ceramic broiler to ensure perfect results every time.

Other recipients of the GOOD DESIGN Award include Fortune 500 companies HP, Apple, Boeing and Tesla.
