Maytag vs Speed Queen Commercial Grade Washers - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 20, 2022 11:00 AM 

 

Washing machines have changed considerably with all of the new energy requirements, and many have become very complicated. Longer wash times and lower water usage have definitely changed the way we do our laundry, and new laundry appliances seem to require more service than older models, especially if the operator uses too much soap or does too many over-sized batches.

Customers are looking for options before they purchase - they want to cut down on service calls and are seeking simpler operation. If you are looking for the best rated top load washer with these features, you should definitely consider Speed Queen and Maytag commercial washers.

The Double Oven Range - Features & Product Reviews

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 20, 2022 10:30 AM 

 

If you love to cook and often find yourself cooking multi-course meals that require cooking two or more dishes at the same time, double oven ranges should be on your shopping list (for more tips, check out our range buying guide). Double oven ranges allow you to cook two different dishes simultaneously at different temperature settings, or use just one oven for faster preheating than if you had to preheat a full-size oven cavity.

Large Capacity Dryer - Who Has the Largest?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Apr 20, 2022 9:30 AM 

 

Researching a new dryer can be an involved process. There are many factors to consider, and size is one of the most important ones. Dryer sizes are wide-ranging, but if you have a large family or heavy laundry needs for some other reason, you may be looking for the manufacturer with the largest dryer capacity on the market. Look no further! (Or, if you want to look further: check out our dryer buying guide for more info on choosing a new dryer!)

We've analyzed large capacity dryer options across manufacturers and found two behemoths that may be just what you are looking for. The overall largest dryer on the market right now comes from LG with a 9.0 cubic foot front load style model. Whirlpool is a close second with a 8.8 cubic foot top load style model (learn more about front load vs top load style dryers here). All dryers load from the front, but "front load style" dryers are designed to match a front load washer, usually with controls on the front of the machine and a windowed door, while "top load style" dryers have controls at the back of the machine and can't be stacked.

Let's explore these highly rated top-of-the-line models! Pay special attention to the dimensions if you're buying extra large washers and dryers because they can be a few inches larger in width and depth than standard size models. Make sure they will fit through your doorways and in your laundry space!

Samsung Flex Duo - Everything You Need to Know!

Posted by Meredith Czymmek on Apr 20, 2022 9:00 AM 

 

A double oven range can be a great way to boost your cooking options: splitting the oven cavity in two means you can cook two dishes at different temperatures simultaneously. A roast for dinner and cookies for dessert? Yes, please!

However, there are a few downsides to the double oven range style: the lower oven is usually the larger one, but it's closer to the floor so you have to bend or squat to get to it. Sometimes the oven space is divided about half and half, while in others there is a smaller upper oven and a larger lower oven. The Samsung Flex Duo system aims to give you the best of both worlds by making it easy to convert your range from a double to a single oven whenever you want.

Weber grills have a dedicated fan following, beginning with their invention of the original round kettle grill in 1951.

Garage Ready Freezer - Best Chest Freezer Models

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 13, 2022 9:30 AM 

So you're looking for a garage ready chest freezer. Options are limited, and it can get confusing when you're trying to research your options online - a freezer may get tagged as a "garage ready" model by a website simply because people have left reviews stating that they have installed it in a garage. In mild climates where the temperature never gets much below 40 degrees, you don't technically need a garage ready model, although installing an "indoor" freezer in a garage could void the warranty.

If you live in the northeast US or other areas with freezing winters, you'll need to check that the freezer you choose can handle below-freezing temperatures.
