RETAILOBSERVER.COM JANUARY 2018 22 Speed Queen also offers a truly innovative feature on all new top load models. The new auto-fill system will check and recheck the load as it fills and begins agitation. This technology uses advanced algorithms to ensure each load has the right amount of water for the specific load. What hasn't changed on the Speed Queen top load washer is its unmatched commercial quality. Like all models, this washer is tested to 10,400 cycles, or the equivalent to 25 years of service in an average home. That quality is backed by industry-leading warranties, including a 7-year parts and in-home labor warranty on the TR7 digital control top load. "Speed Queen's new 7-year warranty is a game changer," McDonald said. "This is a testament to the true commercial quality of our products. Built better to last longer isn't just a tagline for this brand; it is the foundation that guides all product development decisions."

NEW WINESTEWARD WINE DISPENSING SYSTEM BY VINOTEMP TO LAUNCH AT 2018 NATIONAL KITCHEN & BATH INDUSTRY SHOW (KBIS) Proprietary cooling and dispensing technology keeps wine fresh for 45 days and brings the luxury of commercial wine dispensing into the home for thousands less than its competitors Vinotemp ® , the recognized leader in architectural wine storage solutions and cooling technology, announced it will launch the Vinotemp WineSteward ™ wine dispensing system at the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Orlando, Florida January 9-11, 2018 (booth S5459). Featuring the ability to store, cool, preserve, and conveniently dispense wine from four bottles, the stylish, proprietary system brings the convenience of high-end restaurant style wine dispensing into the comfort of home. "Last year, millennials consumed over 159 cases of wine. Their consumption is a driving force in the market's demand for affordable, high-quality wine cooling and dispensing solutions that bring the luxury of enjoying wine at restaurants home," states India Hynes, CEO of Vinotemp. "And this growing demand is exactly what inspired our team at Vinotemp to engineer a new wine dispensing option that functions on a commercial level, is easy to use, attractive, and is priced thousands below its closest competitor." In today's market, the majority of wine dispensers available feature thermoelectric cooling. Unlike its thermoelectric competitors, the Vinotemp WineSteward's proprietary cooling and dispensing technology is compressor-based. This means the WineSteward boasts a more powerful cooling capacity than thermoelectric versions and can better adapt to varying temperatures and added heat loads. Because the innovative, compressor-based dispenser can keep a stable internal temperature despite environmental conditions, it is simple to place on a countertop or install anywhere in the kitchen (even next to a double oven). And, the WineSteward's preservation system — which replaces oxygen with argon or nitrogen gas — ensures each bottle can be enjoyed for up to 45 days. I N D U S T R Y [ N E W S ]
