rates pulp into a removable straining container
for continuous processiu of large amounts
of juice. Like many devices of its kind, the
Braun cannot juice citrus fruits. Parts remove
for easy cleaning. About $99.95.
Omega Juicer 1000. Made with stain-
less steel parts, works with centrifugal force,
spinning the pulverized vegetable at about
3,600 revolutions per minute. Since the pulp
is pulled to the sides of the interior, rather
than being ejected from the machine, this
method extracts more juice than pulp-ejector
machines. Optional citrus juicer attachment
available. Retail price is $234.
The Champion Juicer. A masticating
juicer (it chews and grinds up the vegetables
rather than cutting and spinning them), able
to homogenize and puree as well as to juice;
can make nut butters, frozen sorbets, and
sauces. Resembles a futuristic rhinoceros and
is equipped with a 1/3 -horsepower GE motor.
By the Plastaket Manufacturing Co., Inc. in
Lodi, Ca.; about $270.
The Juiceman II. By Seattle-based Tril-
lium Health Products, features a 1/2-horse-
power electric motor— one of the most
powerful of all the juicers— and stainless steel
blades that move at 6,300 revolutions per
minute. The plastic and stainless steel appli-
ance ejects pulp neatly. Retails for $289. ❑

Kitchen Trends

The kitchen has outgrown its original
purpose as a cooking and eating area to
a central location for relaxing, pursuing
hobbies, paying bills and entertaining.
rIbp kitchen trends include:

New types of furniture: Sofas for
families and guests to lounge in, ar-
moires to hold audio/visual equipment,
and custom dishracks in place of tradi-
tional cabinetry are taking the "cooking
only" edge off kitchen decors.

Theme kitchens: "Shaker style" and
European country are favored for their
simple sophistication, distinct architec-
tural and decorative points of view, abun-
dant use of natural-looking wood, clean
lines, functional approach, and nostalgic
touch of "grandma's house':

Contrasting, age-old materials: In
harmony with today's "back to nature"
thinking, kitchens fuse earthy materials
with a new design twist. Cabinetry and
flooring feature white oak, bleached
maple, bird's eye maple, and other clear-
stained or lightened woods revealing
their natural grain. Against this neutral

setting are gleaming countertops and
tabletops of black or speckled granite
and composite marble, ceramic tile, or
new stone-like materials, synthetically
made with marble particles and

Special prep areas: A passion for
gardening and concern for the environ-
ment lead to installations of carming and
recycling centers, either in addition to, or
in place of the ubiquitous island or

European country kitchens
are favored for their

peninsula. Prep areas that open onto
herb and vegetable patches are part of
the trend as well.

New appliances & storage solutions:
Get ready for your very own wood-
burning pizza oven and built-in wok! 'lb
make room for the endless temptation
of new gadgets and appliances, kitchens
feature a series of wall pegs to hold
chairs, utensils, etc, and special cup-
boards and wall units to mask
refrigerators, microwave ovens and

Sorry if that sounds like
your mother talking. But
with gas logs in your fireplace,
there's never a need to touch
a match, a log or a hearth full
of ashes again.
Simply touch a button
to instantly start a clean-
burning natural gas fire. And
time and effort won't be the
only things you'll save. You'll
also be keeping 50 percent of
your money from going up
the chimney.
So contact your local
Consumers Power office to
find the gas log dealer close to
home. With no more fires to
light, just think how big your
matchbook collection will get.
