Complete IKEA 2011 Appliances Guide uploaded and now available!
Check out all the details in the Brochures section of the IKEAPEDIA.
Along with introducing induction cooking (for less than $1000) to the US market, IKEA is bringing glass ceramic cooktops to market for under $600 as well as a DATID convection built-in wall oven in stainless for only $799. We’re also going to see new products in the FRAMTID line, including built-in microwave ovens to match the wall ovens and some new Pro offerings in the DATID line.
Most of the new offerings are in the cooking range. According to Patrik Rosen, head of IKEA Kitchens in the US, there are no new refrigerators slated for 2011 and the slimline Euro-style refrigerators we’ve all been hoping for are not on the horizon. Also, dishwasher drawers are not going to happen in the US anytime soon much to my dismay. To see more of Patrik’s forecast for 2011 in IKEA Kitchens, see our EXCLUSIVE Video: What’s New in IKEA Kitchens in 2011?
I’ve also heard from another little IKEA bird (you know who you are – thanks!) that there will be garbage disposers available, but so far I’ve not seen any photos of waste disposals. What I do know is that the pricepoints will be $69.99, $89.99 and $129.99. I’ve heard the range name is RANSBY, but I’m not certain as that name is the name of a chair/bench lineup in Austria... Let me know if you have any information to share!
Read on for all the latest news on IKEA appliances for the 2011 IKEA catalog year…
IKEA NUTID Electric Induction Cooktop for $999
Used to be that to get that high-heat like from commercial ranges, you had to buy a high-end rangetop like Viking, Thermador or Bosch for $2500 and up. Then along came induction and GE and Electrolux entered the game at a lower pricepoint of about $1500. IKEA is lagging a bit on this side of the pond, but we’re thrilled to announce that the long-awaited IKEA Induction Cooktop, in the NUTID range, is arriving in US stores with the launch of the new 2011 IKEA catalog on or about August 2nd, 2010 (Houston area IKEA customers received theirs in their Sunday papers yesterday!). Learn more about Induction Cooking.
IKEA’s new for 2011 induction cooking rangetop will be priced at $999 and is available in black. It will fit in a 36″ wide cabinet and you’ll even be able to install drawers directly underneath it! Here’s the specs:
NUTID Induction Cooktop: $999 W30 3⁄8×W21 1⁄4×H2 1⁄2″. Available in Black. Article Number: 501.826.20
Electric Induction in the Marketplace
Our marketplace allows you to browse the wide range of appliances and compare models of kitchen appliances and make the best choice for your kitchen remodel. Although we think the IKEA NUTID (made by Whirlpool) is the best bang for the buck, here’s a way to compare with similar electric induction cooktops on the market:

DÅTID Cooking Range
Pro ranges with gas cooktops are not new to IKEA US – the PRAKTFULL Pro A50 has been available for a couple years in stainless for $1949 (901.151.34), but this year, IKEA is introducing the 36″ DATID Pro D51 in ‘Anthracite’ (which I imagine to be a slate gray, nearing black) for only $1749.
