The 5 Best Induction Cooktop Models of 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jan 21, 2021 5:30 AM 

 

Stovetops with induction offer quick heating times and fine-tuned temperature adjustments while keeping your kitchen and the stovetop surface cool since induction transmits heat directly into your cookware. Magnetic induction elements heat faster than electric elements, and spills won't turn into a hard crust on your cooktop since the cooktop doesn't get hot. (Read more about induction here.) Once you have a set of magnetic pots and pans, you're ready to start cooking with induction! If you're looking for a new cooktop and are interested in going for induction technology, our reviews of the best induction cooktops should help you get started.

The models are listed in no particular order but are numbered for your convenience! They are all 30" models, but we link to 36" models where available. Prices range from $1,499 to $2,221, although holiday sales and package deals can save you 20% or more off the MSRP. Let's dig in!

Electrolux Induction Range & Cooktop Models - Features, Prices

Posted by Bob Allaire on Jan 20, 2021 8:00 PM 

 

 

Electrolux may not be as familiar a brand to some as, for example, Whirlpool or KitchenAid, but this Swedish company has made their mark in the appliance market as the second-largest appliance maker in the world (based on units sold). They created the first true household vacuum cleaner in 1912 and have been making innovative, reliable products ever since. They have owned well-known brand Frigidaire since 1986.

Induction cooking is a unique trend, and induction ranges and cooktops aren't always easy to find. As of this writing, Electrolux has discontinued their induction range and induction cooktops. We are keeping an eye out for new products and will leave these reviews up for informational purposes in the meantime.

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Jan 19, 2021 12:07 PM 

 

Since I began researching and writing about appliances in 2017, I've come to categorize Samsung as a brand that does a very good job at noticing new features that other brands are doing well and putting their own spin on them. Combine this ability to quickly implement relevant new features with their crazy markdowns during holiday sale periods, and it's no surprise that they've become a major player in the US appliance market.

Panel Ready Dishwashers - Are They a Good Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 5, 2021 11:00 AM 

 

If you are designing a new kitchen and want to achieve a modern and professional style, you may want to consider a panel ready dishwasher, also known as an overlay dishwasher. This style allows you to have your cabinetmaker design a panel for the front of your dishwasher which will match the doors on your kitchen cabinets and install a matching handle. These models are designed to hold the custom panel's weight and add a nice look to the kitchen. They may pair well with a panel ready refrigerator and help you achieve that integrated high-end look you desire.

There are many other factors to consider when researching a dishwasher, but if looks are a top concern, a panel ready model may be what you need. For more information to help you choose a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!

The 7 Best Wall Ovens for 2021 (30" Single Ovens - Electric)

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Jan 5, 2021 10:30 AM 

 

 

An electric wall oven provides a high-end built-in look and lets you access your oven without having to bend over. They are more expensive than traditional ranges and are available in standard 24", 27", and 30" widths. Compared to a typical range oven, they tend to be smaller, but not everyone needs six cubic feet of oven space (and if you want extra capacity to cook multiple dishes at once, a double wall oven might be perfect)!

Our list of the best wall ovens for 2021 covers a variety of brands and price points to help you find the perfect option for your home. All but one of these 30" models features true convection, and prices range from $1,649 and up (if you're looking for a wall oven under $1,500, look into Whirlpool, GE, Amana, and Frigidaire). We've numbered them for your convenience, but they are listed in no particular order.
