Garbage Disposal Reviews (Discover the XO Brand of Garbage Disposals)

Posted by Alex Frank on Apr 18, 2018 9:00:00 AM


A garbage disposal can come in handy for anyone generating fresh food waste. They help prevent foul smells in the trash and make kitchen clean-up a breeze. When purchasing one, there are several options to consider, such as whether to buy a continuous feed or a batch feed, how much horsepower is necessary, and which brand to get. While there are many brands to choose from, we will be looking at just one quality company in these garbage disposal reviews: XO.

Why do we focus on XO over other brands? Each model has a 2,500 RPM high-torque motor that provides both speed and power to avoid jams. The components are high-quality, including a durable stainless steel turntable, cast impellers, and Bio-guard antimicrobial protection to prevent bacteria buildup. Plus, they all come equipped with a factory-installed power cord for your convenience. The minimum warranty is three years, up to a lifetime warranty in the premium 1HP models. As a result, XO garbage disposal models are workhorse machines for your kitchen designed for longevity and cleanliness. 

Let's take a look at the different models available from XO in order to determine which option is best for your home.

Commercial Washing Machines For Home Use

Posted by Bob Allaire on Apr 12, 2018 10:30:00 AM


Are you looking for the most dependable, longest-lasting washing machine on the market? If so, then you're probably looking at commercial washing machines for home use. These models are rare in the home appliances market, but they're out there. These washers are made with heavy-duty construction and often do not have the energy efficiency of consumer-grade models. They are priced similarly to many high-efficiency top loaders but don't have as many of the modern "bells and whistles".  You will have to make some trade-offs if you want one of these models, but if durability is your most important criteria, a commercial washing machine made for home use is a great choice.

When it comes to the best makers of commercial washing machines for home use, the brand that most often comes to mind is Speed Queen.  When researching a new washing machine, you'll certainly want to consider the Speed Queen brand! Speed Queen is a specialty laundry manufacturer headquartered in Wisconsin that has been making great laundry products for both the commercial and domestic markets in the US for over 100 years - that's a pretty solid reputation right off the bat!

Frigidaire Professional Refrigerator Reviews - Features, Ratings, Prices

Posted by Alex Frank on Apr 11, 2018 9:00:00 AM


Choosing the right refrigerator is an important task when updating your kitchen, especially since it is a rather large piece that draws attention when you walk in the room.  It represents your style and can be a reflection of your personality. Some product lines provide sleek handles and a smooth contoured appearance while others have a more rugged commercial look. For consumers who are passionate about cooking or just want to feel like the top chef of their own personal restaurant, professionally-styled appliances are a great pick!

When we think of these kinds of professionally-styled appliances, brands like Viking and Wolf often come to mind. If you want that style but are a bit more price conscious, Frigidaire Professional makes a beautifully designed line of products with a commercial edge. While much can be said about Frigidaire’s ranges, wall ovens, dishwashers, and cooktops, we’re going to look at their Professional line of refrigerators in this article.
