Capital Cooking: Chef spec'd residential appliance

LAS VEGAS, NV - I have to say, I knew nothing about Capital Cooking until just the other day when they hit me up on Twitter. I think it's mostly because it's kinda like a custom appliance and very specialized, but from what I see it looks pretty snazzy. The CEO, Surjit Kalsi, was inducted into the NKBA Hall of Fame this week for his contribution to the kitchen industry for the last 27 years.

"I am so humbled and so grateful,” Said Kalsi at his induction ceremony. “I would like to thank Richard Bergstrom for nominating me and thank everyone at the NKBA for this high honor. They say that America is the land of opportunity and they are absolutely right. I struggled in India for ten years and it didn't happen. I left everything behind – my business, my beautiful house – just walked away and left the door open. And here I was able to succeed. I believe there is no life without struggle. You struggle, fail and then develop the strength to get up, go on and succeed.“

America, land of plenty, has its advantages for sure, and clearly Kalsi has been blessed with some of them.

So what makes Capital unique? What separates it from Wolf? It's the new Culinarian Series (featured) of course! The open burner system blasts out 23,000 BTU/hr, compared to Wolf's 48" Duel Fuel at 15,000 BTU/hr. If you're in the market for this type of range, you really need to speak with your Appliance Specialist and compare them yourself, but the styling is - and I'm not even sure if this the right word for it - Steampunk-esque, but shiny. I don't know, there's just something that's a bit more deco about their product. I can't put my finger on it.
