JELD-WEN’s New Authentic Recipe Pantry Door


JELD-WEN has added to its already best-selling pantry door line with its new Authentic Recipe Pantry door, which adds style to one of the most frequently used doors in the home. Celebrating the time-honored traditions of homemade baking and cooking, the door lists actual recipes in an elegant script infused into the door’s glass panel design. The “Recipe” door features 9 to 18 family-style recipes (number depending on the width of door ordered), including apple pie, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, buttermilk pancakes, blueberry muffins, espresso biscotti and more. JELD-WEN experts say that the recipes are real and designed to be tried and tested in homes across the country.


“For today’s homeowner, a great pantry is one of the most desirable features in the kitchen,” said Derek Brosterhous, product marketing manager for JELD-WEN. ” This door adds an element of fun to functionality, turning what used to be a nondescript area into a real conversation piece. Whether you’re a serious baker or not, it’s the perfect accent to a well-equipped kitchen.”

The door is available in nine different species of wood (including primed) to match the most popular interior millwork options. With more families now preparing meals at home due to the economy (59% in 2010 compared to 43% in 2008, according to Kitchen & Bath Design News), functional pantries are now more popular than ever.
