The key engineering feature that differentiates YesterTec Mini-kitchens from ALL others is their ability to safely conceal the built-in cooking appliances (the oven and cooktop). Both of these appliances will not operate with the bi-fold doors closed in front of them. When the doors are opened and placed back into their pockets, the power to the appliances is activated. YesterTec is the only company in the WORLD that offers this U.L. Listed safety technology. And Only 120V power is required to operate any model!

If you like this model, don’t miss our most popular cost saving Limited Edition UK64LE Armoire Kitchens. These Mini-kitchens are a simplified version of the UK68B models shown above.
Should you need more storage, refrigeration or prep space, you can also add a separate piece of Kitchen Workstation Furniture to do the job. Let the Mini-kitchen handle most of the technical tasks and add an island or cupboard if you need more kitchen. That is the beauty of using separate pieces for kitchens, and the resulting ensemble still can flawlessly blend into a multi-task room. Or you can opt for our wider Master Kitchen models that have additional storage and refrigerator capacity attached directly to our core mini-kitchen models. Another alternative for larger mini-kitchens is our Stealth Kitchen Module line (see below) that allows several modules to be combined to form completely concealed kitchens.

Most of the models are shipped in two separate but completely finished pieces, typically separated at the countertop. Appliances and sink are included but shipped separately with the order.

So that your contractor can prepare for its arrival, we will send the rough-in electrical and plumbing drawings and installation instructions that correspond to your model.
