Jeld-Wen’s New Authentic Recipe Pantry Door

Labeled “The Authentic Recipe Pantry Door,” the frosted glass features nine to 18 actual family-style recipes (the number depends on the door width), including apple pie, banana bread, chocolate chip cookies, buttermilk pancakes, espresso biscotti and more. As the name indicates, the recipes are real, and meant to be used. The script is a clear cursive against a frosted base.

According to their release, pantry doors are one of Jeld-Wen’s biggest sellers and one of the most upgraded doors in a home. It’s available in nine different species of wood, including primed. It’s also so new that I don’t see it up on the Jeld-Wen website yet.

I have to admit, my first thought was the vision of parents explaining it to their children, “Yes, kids, that’s what people had before tablet PCs.”

Joking aside, it’s an attractive option for the pantry door that’s either a focal point or tucked away in a butler’s pantry or separate room. I could see it painted and in a traditional white kitchen, or as a softer element in a transitional cherry kitchen.

It could be helpful for those early morning risings—after all, the script is larger than what would be on my computer. Let’s hope the buttermilk pancake recipe isn’t at the bottom of the door.

For more information, contact your door dealer, or visit www.jeld-wen.com/findastore.

Until next time,
