More than just a pretty appliance

The new Bella Professional line delivers small appliances that look good and work well.

Sometimes, you want a kitchen gadget that just looks good. You want people to walk into your kitchen and say, "Wow. Cool." And when that's what you're looking for, the Bella Professional line delivers.

It's not that these appliances don't work well--they do. They're made by Sensio and designed with the most advanced features in mind including the same die-cast metal used in professional appliances. But in addition to their quality, these pieces are, simply, all about the pretty.

Imagine the coffee maker on your counter. With its built-in blue backlight analog clock and die-cast and stainless steel body, this machine is like an instant kitchen makeover. And it has the features you want in a coffee maker--12-cup capacity, 24-hour clock/timer that you can program for hot coffee when you need it most, a brew pause function, an audible ready signal, auto shutoff, and a built-in charcoal water filter and gold tone coffee filter.

If that's not enough for you, why not partner the coffee maker with the milk frother? The stainless steel cup with nonstick coating will let you froth up your milk at 150 degrees for lovely lattes.

The Bella Professional line hits Macy's, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Fortunoff, and other major retailers in February 2009; the milk frother is currently available at Macy's.
