New Ventilation System: Jenn-Air Accolade
Luxury appliance maker Jenn-Air has introduced a dramatically different cooking ventilation system that serves as an impressive design focal point when in use and virtually disappears when not powerfully and quietly clearing the air. Individually hand-crafted of stainless steel and glass, the telescoping Jenn-Air Accolade ventilation system is arc-shaped, with a curved, sculptural profile designed to place ventilation power even closer to the cooking source than traditional systems.
This newest offering is the latest in a long series of Jenn-Air ventilation innovations spanning five decades. They include the first downdraft cooktop; a black glass and stainless steel "perimetric" system that hangs on the wall like a flat screen TV; and the first duct-free downdraft ventilation that filters and recirculates air, requiring no ducting to the outside.
"Because it's both beautiful and fully retractable, the Accolade system offers the best of both worlds in luxury kitchen design," notes Juliet Johnson, manager of brand experience for Jenn-Air. "When it's doing its job it makes a powerful design statement, but when it's not needed it disappears, opening up kitchen sight lines and keeping things sleek and uncluttered."
"Seeing it rise or disappear at the touch of a button invariably results in 'oohs' and 'ahs' from those who experience it," she adds. "But given its striking appearance, it will likely stay in the raised position in many kitchens."
Individually hand-crafted of stainless steel and glass, the telescoping Jenn-Air Accolade ventilation system is arc-shaped, with a curved, sculptural profile designed to place ventilation power even closer to the cooking source than traditional systems.
The 36" Accolade system is equipped with a high performance, pressure stabilizing in-line blower system that removes cooking smoke at a rate of up to 1,200 cubic feet per minute (CFM). The inline blower system minimizes operating sounds to keep things quiet in the kitchen. High flow speed at the edge of the hood helps to prevent smoke from escaping into the kitchen, even at low motor levels.
The Accolade ventilation system can be engaged either by pressing a button on the system itself or using the provided remote control. Its sleek, slim-profile design is enhanced with ambient lighting, concealed controls and discreet LED lighting that indicates fan speed and provides an alert when filters require cleaning.
The system also provides a host of practical features, including dishwasher-safe mesh filters, a magnetic filter attachment, four fan speeds, three duct positions, auto shutoff when retracted, and a timer for automatically turning off the blower.
The Accolade system is now available at select Jenn-Air retailers nationwide.
