ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Maytag Corporation's family of brands introduces new products that combine the conveniences consumers want with the performance they demand during the 2006 International Builders' Show, January 11-14.

From the industry's first refrigerator that combines consumers' favorite features in one appliance to the world's first "sport utility vacuum" to a slide-in range that makes kitchen island cooking and entertaining easy, Maytag Corporation showcases innovations for the home through its Maytag(R), Hoover(R) and Jenn-Air(R) brands on display at booth #W501.

Maytag(R) Ice2O(TM) French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator Offers Everything For Everyone

Today's time-starved families demand a lot from their refrigerators: easy access to ice and water for the kids to cool down after the big game; plenty of room to store fresh food, including large deli platters for entertaining; and well-organized storage that puts everything from beverages to frozen meals within convenient reach.

There no longer is a need to compromise on any of these features, thanks to the new Maytag(R) Ice2O(TM) French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator. It combines the best features of a side-by-side and bottom-freezer refrigerator in one revolutionary design, with the industry's first external filtered ice and water dispenser on a French door and the largest-available fresh food capacity.

Until now, consumers had to choose either a side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water on the door or a bottom-freezer model that offered wider storage for fresh foods, but no external ice dispenser.

Establishing a new high-water mark for convenience and versatility, the Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator includes the generous fresh food compartment and convenient organizational features that Mom wants for keeping foods neatly stored and at eye level; the bottom-freezer access that Dad wants for his next late-night ice cream snack; and, for the entire family, the ease of external ice and water. An ENERGY STAR(R)-qualified appliance, the Maytag Ice2O French Door Bottom-Freezer Refrigerator also exceeds federal energy-efficiency standards by 15 percent - helping consumers conserve energy and save money.

Hoover(R) Introduces World's First Sport Utility Vacuum For An All-Terrain Cleaning Experience

Hoover has introduced the world's first sports utility vacuum designed to seamlessly conquer any surface for a high level of cleaning. The Hoover(R) Z(TM) Bagless Upright Vacuum is a first-of-its-kind cleaner that comes fully loaded for an entirely new performance in the floor-care category.

Consumers' cleaning needs have changed due to the growing trend of multiple floor surfaces within the home. Today's home requires a single vacuum that can adjust to different carpet levels and transition from hard to delicate surfaces, both on and above the floor. The features of the Hoover Z Bagless Upright address major concerns voiced by vacuum users - the starting and stopping motion of the cleaning process as users switch between vacuums and modes, the need for efficient cleaning across multiple surfaces and heights and the maintenance associated with cleaning and replacing the main filter. The Hoover Z bagless upright focuses on all aspects of vacuuming from set up and start to use and storage, designed to provide a truly satisfying cleaning experience.

Features of the new vacuum include a DigiTouch(TM) control pad allowing for a seamless, automatic adjustment between surfaces and settings without the need to bend over the vacuum, and a patent-pending self-cleaning HEPA filter that automatically cleans itself every six seconds and never needs replacing to maintain a high level of cleaning. Its super-stretch hose extends 20 feet for convenient above-the-floor cleaning of curtains, drapes, molding and tops of stairs. The patent-pending collapsible Z-Fold(TM) design also offers the performance and convenience of an upright with the flexibility and stability of a canister in one vacuum. The new, flagship product of the Hoover line of high-performance cleaning appliances is available in two models, the Hoover Z 700 and Hoover Z 400.

Jenn-Air(R) Slide-In Ranges Create A Kitchen Island Paradise

According to a recent survey from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), 77 percent of homeowners say that a kitchen island is an important consideration when buying, building or remodeling a home. When it comes to island cooking, no appliance is more popular or versatile than a slide-in range. At the same time, the kitchen island is a utilitarian area for food preparation and an appealing space for entertaining. The new Jenn-Air(R) slide-in ranges serve both functions fabulously, with flexible fuel sources, built-in warming drawers and new performance features that are worthy of Jenn- Air's cooking heritage. The standard 30-inch width provides excellent installation flexibility, while the flush-to-counter styling gives the range a high-end, built-in look.

The new slide-in range collection also features models with Jenn-Air's renowned downdraft ventilation system. Downdraft ranges eliminate smoke and odor from the cooking surface, eliminating the need for an overhead hood. And as downdraft captures the smoke and odors at the point of creation, it operates more efficiently than an overhead hood. In fact, a downdraft system is nine times more efficient than an overhead hood of similar power.

The new models combine high-performance features with Jenn-Air's exclusive styling, including the popular Floating Glass finish. New Jenn-Air slide-in range offerings include completely re-engineered downdraft and updraft gas models, a Euro-Style Stainless dual-fuel model and a sleek "Gas on Glass" look that couples gas power with the popular glass cooking surface that dominates new electric cooktops.

Jenn-Air's new ranges feature the industry's largest slide-in oven capacities, while convection models include the exclusive MultiMode(R) convection system for ideal results when baking, roasting, drying or thawing. Plus, Jenn-Air's new convection element improves heat distribution and airflow, making the new Jenn-Air slide-in ranges an ideal choice for serious home gourmets.

Maytag Corporation is a leading producer of home and commercial appliances. Its products are sold to customers throughout North America and in international markets. The corporation's principal brands include Maytag(R), Hoover(R), Jenn-Air(R), Amana(R), Dixie-Narco(R) and Jade(R).
