Bertazzoni Unveils a New Look and New Appliances

The brand always had one drawback: Since it only made cooking appliances, buyers of Bertazzoni’s brightly colored enamel ranges or sleek wall ovens had to source dishwashers and refrigerators from other companies.

Until now.

At 2016 Design and Construction Week, Bertazzoni unveiled its new dishwasher and refrigerator, designed to match its existing Heritage, Professional, and Master series ovens, cooktops, and ranges.

We got some hands-on time with them. Although they didn’t feel as solid as some true pro-style models, they’re not tremendously expensive—and dealers will likely offer incentives for buyers who purchase an entire Bertazzoni suite once they go on sale later in 2016.

Bertazzoni DW24XV and DW24XT Dishwashers

With a MSRP of $899, the DW24XV is a 24-inch flush-mounted dishwasher that's 22.5 inches deep for flush-mounted installation. It has a 48 dBA noise rating and an adjustable second rack. Up top, there's a third rack, which slides out of the way for tall items.

Cycles include Heavy, Auto, Normal, Quick, Eco and Rinse, and features include Heated Extra Dry, Sani Boost, Hi Temp and 24-hour Delay. The DW24XV includes a hard food disposer.

The DW24XT (MSRP $1,099) has all the same features as the DW24XV except it replaces hard food disposer with removable filter, and adds a 45 dBA sound rating and targeted Power Zone option

Bertazzoni REF36X Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator

The counter-depth fridge, which is very similar to a model from Fulgor Milano, has an MSRP of $2,999. It features 15 cu. ft. of refrigerator space and 6 cu. ft. of freezer space, and fits in a space that's 35 7/8 inches wide by 70 inches tall by 28.5 inches deep (measured to handles). The fridge has a DC Inverter Compressor.

Inside, there are four, gallon-size adjustable shelves on the right door. Its temperature-adjustable compartment can go from 32°F to 42°F, and there's a folding shelf for tall items. Down in the freezer, there are two drawers. All compartments have LED Lighting.

The dishwashers and refrigerators must be specifically ordered with either Heritage, Master, or Professional series handles. Unlike the ranges, they are not built in Bertazzoni’s factory in Guastalla, Italy—they’re designed by Bertazzoni but made by Chinese appliance giant Midea. All of the Bertazzoni dishwashers and refrigerators are covered by a two-year limited warranty.
