Yale Appliance and Lighting

Your flambé skills may be supreme, but if your kitchen equipment isn’t, “heat and stir” is about as gourmet as dinner’s going to get. Fortunately, Yale stocks some of the finest appliances around—stainless-steel Sub-Zero fridges, stovetops, and Theramdor free ranges. And the service is superb: The store offers demonstrations and will deliver and remove appliances.
