Birkenfeld - Whether for a holiday with the whole family or an extended business stay - the serviced apartments concept is enjoying increasing popularity. The guests' wishes are always the same: A welcome arrival and feeling comforta-ble. Besides the apartment interior, the technical equipment also plays a ma-jor role in making the guests feel at home. Therefore WMF Professional is not only the right point of contact in future when it comes to the right cutlery, glasses and other tabletop accessories - starting immediately electrical appliances will also be part of its portfolio.
The product range comprises the proven electrical appliances from the WMF Consumer division, along with the extensive world of products and brands at Groupe SEB, including items from brands such as KRUPS, TEFAL, OBH NORDICA, MOULINEX and ROWENTA. The kitchen equipment assortment now includes coffee machines, kettles, toast-ers, waffle irons and ovens. The household range has also been extended to include irons and vacuum cleaners, as well as hair dryers and weighing scales for the bathroom. WMF Professional is therefore now in a position to better meet the need for professional appliances in the serviced apartments seg-ment.
By expanding the WMF Professional product range to include electrical appliances, this has strengthened and expanded the brand's position as a leading supplier for the various target groups in the hospitality industry - whether they be hotels, restau-rants, bulk caterers, cruise ship operators or airlines. It benefits from the high-performance product and brand portfolio of Groupe SEB.

The electrical appliances from the WMF Consumer division also fit perfectly in the spacious areas of hotel rooms, lounges and apartments thanks to their timeless, high-quality stainless steel design. The WMF Professional portfolio now includes two kettles in 0.8 l and 1.2 l sizes, the latter is part of the WMF STELIO series. A high level of safety is guaranteed thanks to the dry run and over-heating protection, automatic boiling shut-off function and locking lid. And no kitchen should be without a toaster.
