Posted by Bob Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 1:00 PM 


NOTE: This post is no longer being updated as of September 2021, as we no longer sell this brand. If you have questions about these products, we recommend reaching out to a local store that sells Fisher & Paykel, or to contact the manufacturer directly - click here for their contact info.

Dish Drawer dishwashers are a unique concept that offer versatility and performance that you can't get with traditional dishwashers. They offer installation and operational options that you probably have not considered. In our Fisher & Paykel dishwasher reviews, we'll discuss the features, packages and pricing of their eye-catching drawer dishwashers (for more info on choosing a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide).

These unique products were developed by New Zealand-based company Fisher & Paykel in the 1990s and brought to market in the United States in the early 2000s. Other manufacturers tried to offer the product but were not successful and now Fisher & Paykel is the only manufacturer of this unique dishwasher type.

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 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.

Posted by Todd Buehler on Oct 29, 2021 10:15 AM 



NOTE: Since we no longer sell the Fisher & Paykel brand, we will not be updating the Fisher Paykel products reviewed here as of September 2021. You can view Fisher Paykel's current lineup of refrigerators by clicking here.

If you are shopping for a new refrigerator, you want to be sure to look at all of the top refrigerator brands. There are so many brands to choose from that sometimes it's hard to differentiate one from the other. Maybe you're accustomed to the mainstay US brands that you grew up with like GE, Whirlpool, and Frigidaire - which are all great options. Or maybe you've been hearing lots about the recently popular Korean brands, LG and Samsung. 

We want to take a look at two top refrigerator brands that you may not have considered: Bosch and Fisher & Paykel. These lesser-known boutique brands have lots to offer. In this article, we'll give you some great background on their products and delve into some specific models.

5,000 BTU Air Conditioner - What Are Your Options?

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 10:00 AM 


A 5,000 BTU air conditioner is about as small as you can get in window or portable units. Of course, we recommend that you make sure you've chosen the right size of air conditioner because even if it's cheap, it won't do you any good if it's too underpowered to cool your space.

Top Freezer Refrigerators - An Option Worth Considering?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 10:00 AM 


If you are doing research on new refrigerators, choosing the style can be one of your most important considerations. Many of today's consumers are looking for French door bottom freezer models. Some consumers love the once-popular side by side models. However, if you are constrained for space, have a limited budget, or simply prefer a traditional style, a top freezer refrigerator may be a good fit for you. As their name suggests, top freezer refrigerators have the fresh food compartment on the bottom and the freezer on the top.

5 Largest Side by Side Refrigerator Models of 2021

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 9:30 AM 


The side-by-side refrigerator helps you keep everything important at eye level so you can easily access refrigerated and frozen items without bending over. This refrigerator style tends to be wider than a comparable bottom freezer or top freezer model, so they work best in kitchens with space to spare (compare side-by-side vs French door refrigerators in our article). They are often ADA compliant because of their easy-access design, so they are a great option to consider if you or someone in your household has a physical disability.

French Door vs Side By Side - What's Right for Your Kitchen?

Posted by Bob Allaire on Oct 29, 2021 9:30 AM 


If you are shopping for a new refrigerator for your home, you've probably found the French door style tempting due to its popularity and its prominence in stores. French door refrigerators took the market by storm a few years ago and haven't slowed down! But before you make the plunge, it can't hurt to take another look at the side-by-side refrigerator style. With their modern features and styling, side by sides may be a good option if you consider the shelving options and the efficiency of the food storage. New ice maker designs give you more shelf space in the freezer section, too! They can be a great alternative to French door models for budget-conscious shoppers.

It's a tough choice – so let's dig into the pros and cons of both styles! (Quick tip: If you're looking for more info on choosing the best refrigerator for your needs, check out our refrigerator buying guide!) We'll also review two top-selling models from each category.
