Kitchen Appliances 101

From cooking holiday meals to baking cookies for an entire class, your kitchen has gone through a lot over the years. You have decided to take your kitchen to the next level by replacing your current appliances and we want to help you make the best decision for your kitchen remodel.

Kitchen Appliances 101:

Microwave.
Most homeowners buy the most inexpensive microwave that they can find on the market, but we recommend spending a little extra time researching microwaves. If you buy a high-quality microwave, it can eliminate the need to buy two ovens for your home.

Oven.
You can save a lot of money by purchasing a convection oven rather than a tradition oven for your household. Homeowners typically prefer the convention oven because of its speed, heating capabilities, and size. But if you are big on baking, you will want to buy a traditional oven that offers the classic modes like bake, roast or broil.

Refrigerator.
The quality of your refrigerator’s compressor will depend on how long you want to keep your food fresh. People who spend a lot of money on groceries may want to buy a dual-compressor unit to keep their food fresh for a longer time. Dual-compressors are typically more expensive than a single-compressor unit and it is important for homeowners to understand their need before shopping for refrigerators.

Sink.
Sinks have become more personalized to fit different homeowner’s cooking styles. There are cutting board attachments for prepping, deep sinks for extra space, and a wide variety of colors, shapes and sizes for whatever your needs may be. Experts recommend buying a high-quality sink if you buy expensive countertops. The reason behind this theory is that low-quality sinks may need to be repaired and taken up. If that happens, you have to take up the countertop around it and could ruin the expensive countertop your splurged on buying. We recommend buying a high-quality sink that meets your cooking preferences.

Stovetop.
Your mind may immediately go to either gas or electric. Each homeowner has a preference depending on the way they cook. But before you choose, we would like to remind you of induction heat cooktops. With induction cooktops, you can keep the most amount of heat on your pan. Experts say that “40% of heat is lost from gas stovetops.” If you are looking for a high-performing stovetop, consider buying an induction heat cooktop.
