Hospitality Centers are very similar to Working Pantries, except that they typically include a sink, refrigerator and small microwave. Other plug in small appliances like single burner cooktops, toaster ovens, blenders etc. can add to the utility of this beautiful piece that hides everything. Hospitality centers do not have a built-in oven or cooktop and therefore they do not have (or need) our power cutoff safety features allow our Mini-kitchens to conceal the higher powered appliances. However, very nice plug-in movable burners, toaster ovens, small microwave ovens, coffee makers and other small appliances that plug in can be used.
