Antoni Would Like You to Have Chic Kitchen Appliances

‘Queer Eye’ star and chef Antoni Porowski was at the AGO for the launch of the new Café Appliances collection

By Sara Cunningham

Canadian Antoni Porowski of Netflix’s Queer Eye fame was in Toronto this week to unveil Café, a new appliance collection featuring customizable hardware from GE.

After flawlessly posing as a Rodin sculpture in the AGO, the affable Montreal native and self-taught cook gushed to the media about the wide selection of brushed finishes – including bronze, copper, black and stainless steel – as well as convenient features, like a hot water dispenser on the fridge.

And, in keeping with Queer Eye’s inclusive focus, he praised the accessibly placed buttons and pulls, which can be tricky to reach for some.

The Café appliance range comes in matte black and white finishes, soon to be followed by a stainless steel edition. It includes all the appliances you need to build a harmonious kitchen – from microwaves to wall ovens with French doors (shown below).

Celebrity endorsement aside, our editors agreed that the appliances would make dapper additions to any kitchen (maybe even our own). And we especially liked the idea of matching a bronze or copper faucet with the glam custom hardware.
