About ZLINE Kitchen and Bath: A Deep Dive Into America’s Fastest-Growing Appliance Company

The US appliance industry is highly competitive and fast-growing, with an estimated worth of more than $500 billion by 2023. It hasn’t been easy for new companies to enter the market, but one family-owned business continues to break the mold.

ZLINE is one of the fastest-growing emerging brands in the US. Locally owned and operated, they design and ship affordable but luxurious appliances all over the United States.  

Proudly Family-Owned with a Local Footprint

The “Z” in ZLINE comes from the company’s founder’s name Andy Zuro.  After working on his own home, Andy realized that it was difficult to find professional grade, luxury appliances at an attainable price point.  ZLINE was born to solve this problem. 

Based in Reno, Nevada, ZLINE first launched with a wide array of range hoods that come in a wide selection of finishes, such as copper and wood. Soon after, ZLINE used their design and manufacturing expertise to expand into ranges, dishwashers, microwaves, (and soon refrigerators). 

After experiencing rapid growth in their early years, ZLINE opened an additional headquarters in Ohio, then a 205,000-square-foot, $3-million, distribution center in Tennessee in 2018. Focusing on their local footprint, ZLINE has created numerous jobs in each community they are based in. 

ZLINE parts are globally sourced from the US, Italy, Germany, and around the world. Manufactured with the highest quality materials, including hand-carved wood, and hand-welded stainless steel. The company has produced custom-style copper and wooden range hoods at a scale that is still unparalleled, with Andy Zuro still playing a lead role in the design and creation of their new products. 

Similar to how Apple manufacture’s their iPhones in China from parts sourced around the world, ZLINE takes advantage of a similar strategy. ZLINE designs their ranges, range hoods, and appliances in Nevada and assembles them in their own manufacturing facility in China. Their products are assembled to their exacting and high standards, with focus on quality above all else. 

Are ZLINE Products Good To Buy? 

ZLINE embodies their philosophy of Attainable Luxury. Manufacturing the highest quality products at amazing price points.  They focus on producing professional grade appliances, while also offering a wide selection of colors and finishes.  Plus they manufacture kitchen and bath-ware including sinks, shower systems, and faucets that enhance customers’ homes and real estate value. 

The company emphasizes customer satisfaction and offers generous warranties on all their products. They have a large support staff based in the United States, so in the rare event there is an issue, ZLINE is there to help. 

Where Can I Buy ZLINE products?

ZLINE products are available at Home Outlet Direct, an Authorized Dealer featured on ZLINE’s homepage.  Home Outlet Direct offers free shipping on all orders within continental United States.

I fell prey to the ZLINE Attainable Luxury Designed in Lake Tahoe. I thought, this must be a good alternative to what you find at the box stores. I bought an entire ZLINE kitchen. A pretty face is all you get. Marginal build/assembly quality all around. The unexpected LOUD in your waist heat exhaust fan is a complete deal breaker. I would have been much better of spending less money on a scratched and dented floor model from any other manufacturer.

If you dislike any of that, of course making markers out of batter or melted sugar on the bezel while making batters lets you do markup! It dries or cools or bakes in place in short time. I do not know how I’d make detents work but maybe Panera or your Kitchen Supply or such does such a thing and/or those knobs are big enough to add internal detents.

Let us know if there are unused electric power access at the bezel and how much; very bad place to charge a phone, very awkward place to mount a tablet unless your backsplash is a lightbox window, convenient for remote cooking starts (was there no LG touch control option?) I guess, powering a cobot, and yeah bezel lights. (Boo! I’m the uplighting chef! This dish was cooked here this very night 37 years ago! No this is a new firing, yikes!)

Many things are wrong with this! Certainly hiring a craftsperson and/or stenciling (adonizing paste) your temperature hints on in your units of choice (print that Frog Tape!) will get you indicators that pop and/or fill legend space right or top-right of selected guide knobs. Alternately you can make a powered tailproof bezel with a RasPi Zero sort of computer ($14ish) such that enough bezels have their own (IR presence or Lidar-triggered (the LIDAR that can detect range or faces or simply that our phones are in a pocket and needn’t light up etc.)) LED lampage and/or call-outs. That is, the LED can give light to suit your call on the towels on the rack or your waist, plus the OG bezel or adonized marks, and/or illuminate and speak/replay (in speech) a temperature where you like so there’s a glowing 87° F (…all the other temperatures) on the steel or an e-paper sign, on the guard around the steel (not that it can’t also be steel (safe bevel all unfolded edges 🤟 (throwing horns is the I Love You hand sign?!? oh.) so animals can’t operate the stove just because you left some temptation on top (and paws, and tails, and they’re cornering showoffs) but also your bezel is compelling you (maybe you, maybe a particular and trained mammal…carp, not for me to say;) to bake, warm, dehydrate, crisp, proof, display, toast, etc.

Secondly I wish the ovens could be serviced by a split for efficiency and so that ice service could be boosted and the overall heat load on kitchen/dining service ventilation reduced; maybe at least an alt drop for split heat at warming oven er…inlets?

I teceived my beautiful 36” gas Autograph series range last month. It is so beautiful, just as it looked in brochers! But, i have to get a flashlight out in order to read the brass knobs. Most difficult to know the oven temperature ! On a beautiful and expensive range as this i shouldnt need a flashlight! What’s wtong with this??!
