An introduction to Sub-Zero Wolf, V-Zug, and BORA

Kitchens, once solely for the preparation of food and sequestered to a small room, have evolved to become a showcase of elegance and style. At My Fathers Heart, we see your kitchen as a canvas for culinary creativity and a space for social interaction. This evolution has paved the way for the rise of luxury appliance brands that combine innovative technology with eye-catching design. The demand for luxury appliances has surged in recent years, with a growing emphasis on open-concept living and seamlessly integrated interiors, kitchen appliances are more visible than ever and expected to deliver exceptional performance while also seamlessly blending into the aesthetics of the modern home.

Here we look at three leading brands redefining luxury in the modern kitchen: Sub-Zero Wolf, V-Zug, and BORA.

Sub-Zero Wolf: Innovation and elegance

Sub-Zero Wolf, with its rich heritage spanning over seven decades, has established itself by combining innovation with elegance in the kitchen. Loved by professional chefs and celebrities alike, their products can be found in New York’s Bloomberg Tower, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Pan Peninsula in London and countless city houses and country estates across six continents; Sub-Zero and Wolf are the embodiment of luxury kitchen appliances.

Sub-Zero is renowned for its refrigeration technology; their appliances are built to last over twenty years, and the technology follows three pillars of food preservation: humidity, temperature and air purification. Their dual refrigeration system uses multiple evaporators to maintain truly separate cooling environments for the refrigerator and freezer, whilst the temperature is kept within 0.5 degrees to ensure food is kept fresher for longer and prevent flavour transfer between different items. The NASA-developed air purification system is unique to Sub-Zero and removes mould, viruses, bacteria, and ethylene gas, further prolonging food preservation and reducing food waste.

On the brand’s culinary side, Wolf takes centre stage with professional-grade cooking appliances designed to empower both seasoned chefs and passionate home cooks. Wolf offers versatile ovens and companion products with facias and operating controls to suit any style of kitchen, whether traditional or modern. The captivating centrepiece of any Wolf kitchen must be the dual-fuel range cooker with patented dual-stacked, sealed gas burners providing consistent high searing heat to low-controlled simmers paired with Wolf’s most advanced dual convection oven with a dual fan system that produces consistent, flavourful multi-rack-cooking-every-time. Wolf appliances are a testament to culinary precision.

V-Zug: Swiss precision and culinary mastery

Hailing from Switzerland, V-Zug epitomises Swiss precision and culinary mastery and is proud to be the preferred brand of Michelin-rated restaurants: Waterside Inn (Bray, Berkshire) with chef Alain Roux and Grantley Hall (Ripon, Yorkshire) with chef Sean Rankin. With a heritage deeply rooted in Switzerland's tradition of craftsmanship, V-Zug stands as a testament to meticulous engineering and innovation.

The precision steam technology ensures that every ingredient retains its natural nutrients, resulting in healthier yet delicious meals. From succulent meats to vibrant vegetables, V-Zug's steam ovens empower cooks to achieve exceptional results at home.

Beyond culinary innovation, V-Zug is dedicated to sustainability.

In a world increasingly conscious of environmental impact, V-Zug's appliances incorporate energy-efficient features and materials that prioritise both culinary artistry and the planet.

BORA: Design innovation and fresh air

At My Fathers Heart, we are no strangers to BORA, a brand that's reimagining the very essence of kitchen ventilation and cooking. We have our very own BORA cooking lab, the first of its kind in the north of England and a testament to our belief in the brand’s ethos. In a departure from conventional appliances, BORA stands as the pioneer of sleek extraction solutions and exceptional ovens that redefine kitchen design and functionality, earning it recognition with multiple design awards.

BORA's cooktop extraction systems are more than just appliances but seamlessly blend form and function. The downdraft systems eliminate the need for bulky overhead extractors, liberating valuable space and allowing kitchen aesthetics to take centre stage. The result is a minimalist and open kitchen environment that invites creativity whilst eliminating cooking odours and grease.
