Posted by Alex Frank on May 22, 2019 8:00:00 AM

The company has several lines of products, including the basic Frigidaire, the restaurant-inspired Frigidaire Professional, and the stylish Frigidaire Gallery. While much can be said about each product line, we will be looking specifically at Frigidaire Gallery refrigerators in this article to compare the different styles and features available.

Wine Refrigerator Reviews - 4 Models for Any Budget

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 22, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Are you a wine lover looking for an ideal place to store your precious vino? We've compiled a list of wine refrigerator reviews designed to help a wine enthusiast on any budget choose an ideal model of wine refrigerator for their home. Wine refrigerators vary in size, installation options, temperature range settings, number of compartments and, of course, aesthetic appeal. In-depth wine refrigerator reviews can be tough to come by, but we've selected four models at differing price points and with differing feature packages to help you choose the ideal model.

If this is your first time buying a wine center, here are a few things to consider when researching different models:

  • Temperature Zones: Dual zone models allow you to set two different temperatures for two different sections of the wine cooler. This lets you choose the ideal serving temperature for different types of wines. If your only concern is keeping your wines at the ideal long term storage temperature of around 45 to 55 degrees, then you can probably go for a single zone model. Dual zone models are usually more expensive.

  • Built In vs Freestanding: If you want the built-in look, you'll generally have to pay upwards of $1,200. Built-in refrigerators are "front breathing" so they don't require ventilation space on the sides or rear. If you try to install a freestanding model into a built-in space, you'll need a replacement pretty quickly! Frigidaire is a leader in offering built-ins for less if you want the best of both worlds.

  • Temperature Controls: All but one of the models in our wine refrigerator review have digital temperature controls rather than dials. This feature is not hard to come by but can be easy to overlook if you're new to the wine cooler game! We prefer the digital controls over dials since they are more exact and offer precise adjustments for different types of wine.

  • Interior Features: Options like showcase lighting, wooden wine racks, and other features can be more costly, but can be worth it. Make sure to try pulling the shelves in and out when you're looking at different models in-store, preferably loaded with a full wine bottle or two. Shelves that glide nicely are a nice basic feature to look for that will make using your wine cooler more enjoyable!

 

Now that you know about what to consider when buying a wine refrigerator, let's take a closer look at models from Danby, GE, Frigidaire, and Electrolux.

LG Sensor Dry - A Feature Worth Considering

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 21, 2019 11:00:00 AM

 

There are many options and features to consider while researching a new dryer. If you are looking for drying accuracy, LG Sensor Dry may be worth considering when you purchase your next dryer. We'll go over sensor drying and review a top-seller from LG with this technology!

Sensor drying is the most accurate drying system available and will save you time and money by reducing utility costs and wear and tear on fabrics. Over-drying can damage or prematurely wear out your fabrics, while under-drying can leave your clothes stinky and needing to be re-washed. Not to mention the fact that dryers are usually the second-biggest electricity hogs in your home, second to your refrigerator, so avoiding the additional electricity wasted on over-drying or re-drying after re-washing stinky damp clothes is good for your bank account!

Dryers with this feature have a sensor located in the drum that measures the humidity inside of the drum. As the clothes pass by it during the cycle, it will send a message to the dryer when the clothes are dry and shut the dryer down without over-drying the clothes. Other dryers accomplish the same task by measuring the temperature of the air going out of the vent, but the sensor dry system is more accurate. (You can learn more about dryer features and options in our Dryer Buying Guide!)

Maytag Electric Range Reviews – Should You Consider a Maytag?

Posted by Alex Frank on May 21, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

If you’ve been shopping for appliances for a while, you might remember the loneliest man in town, better known as the Maytag Repair Man. Starting back in 1967, Maytag ran advertisements with this bored fellow who had nothing to do because Maytag appliances never broke down. The brand became synonymous with dependability and many consumers have stood by them for all of their appliance needs. While most appliances won’t last as long as they did 50 years ago, Maytag is still committed to delivering reliable products that will stand the test of time. In fact, they put a 10-year limited parts warranty on all of their products to demonstrate that commitment.

Large Capacity Dryer - Who Has the Largest?

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 19, 2019 11:00:00 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 Maytag with a special order 9.2 cubic foot traditional style model with backguard controls. LG is a close second with a 9.0 cubic foot front 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!

Maytag Gas Range Reviews - Should You Consider a Maytag?

Posted by Bob Allaire on May 19, 2019 10:00:00 AM

 

When you are looking for a new gas range, Maytag is a brand you should consider. When people think of Maytag, they often think of laundry products. We see Maytag washers and dryers still in use after 30 or more years of continuous service - that's quality! Now owned by Whirlpool Corporation, Maytag products are still made to stand the test of time and to deliver high quality appliances in all categories with state of the art features. Their gas and electric ranges are great products with innovative features to help save time and make the job of cooking for the family easier and more enjoyable for the cook. 

When you hear the name Maytag, Whirlpool wants you to associate it with quality and longevity and they continue to produce that type of product under the Maytag name. If you want your new range to be made in the USA, you should definitely be taking a look at what Maytag has to offer.

In this article, we’ll provide in-depth reviews of Maytag's two main freestanding gas range models, plus their double oven and slide in models. All Maytag gas ranges come with hidden bake elements, continuous burner grates, and an impressive 10-year warranty on the cooktop burners, oven burners, cast iron grates, and the oven cavity.

Best Rated Top Load Washer - Commercial Grade Options - Maytag vs Speed Queen

Posted by Bob Allaire on May 18, 2019 11:00:00 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.
