5 Largest Side by Side Refrigerator Models of 2020

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Nov 20, 2019, 9:30:00 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.

If you're looking for the largest side by side refrigerator you can find, you're in the right place! We've compiled the largest side by side refrigerator models on the market today complete with all of the important features you need to know to make an informed buying decision. Side by sides can get pretty massive! Our list covers models priced as low as $1,499 all the way up to $2,399, with capacities as high as 28.5 cubic feet.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Frigidaire?

Posted by Alex Frank on Nov 19, 2019, 9:30:00 AM

 

In 1916, the first self-contained electric refrigerator was invented and introduced to the public. The company that created this groundbreaking innovation was purchased by General Motors in 1918 and has since grown to be one of the most trusted and well-known major appliance producers in the USA and around the world. The name of this company? Frigidaire.

Appliances have come a long way since then and somewhere between the end of World War II and Elvis taking the world by storm, the dishwasher became a ubiquitous staple item of American kitchens. Frigidaire eventually jumped on board and added the dishwasher to their lineup of quality products, and now, after a century in the appliance business, they have a full line of dishwashers, each with unique features and capabilities suited to different consumer needs.

In this article, we’re going to examine four Frigidaire dishwasher models, ranging from a basic economical model to the higher end professional model. When it comes to price, keep in mind that package deals and holiday sales can cut 20% or even 40% off of the retail price! If you are researching new dishwashers, don't overlook Frigidaire.

The 5 Best Over The Range Microwaves for 2020

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 19, 2019, 8:45:00 AM

 

One of the most convenient kitchen appliances found in almost every home is the popular over the range microwave oven, more commonly known as an OTR microwave oven. The OTR microwave has taken the place of the countertop microwave and hood assembly, saving space by combining both products into one handy package. Power capacities can vary from 850 watts for reheating or up to 1,200 watts for cooking full meals. 

Most of these models are manufactured with a recirculating or outdoor vented multiple speed fan assembly and have built-in lighting to illuminate the cooking surface below. The built-in exhaust fans will vary from a quiet 170 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) to a power-boosting 400 CFM fan velocity to pull odors, steam, smoke, oil mists and heat through the grease and/or charcoal filters. Many models have heat sensors built into the body that will automatically turn on the exhaust fan to cool the components and get rid of excessive heat if it recognizes an overheated interior cavity or too much heat from the cooking surface. For more info on microwave features, check out our microwave buying guide!

Let's take a look at the top five models available on the market today and try to identify the best over the range microwave for you. Prices range from $279 to $699, and all models are at least 1,000 watts.

Best Dishwasher for the Money - Bosch vs Frigidaire

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019, 11:00:00 AM

 

Many dishwasher buyers have been looking for information about how Frigidaire's dishwashers compare with Bosch models. Bosch is widely known to consumers as an excellent brand and is very strong in the dishwasher category. They were one of the first to fill the need for quieter dishwashers and even their most inexpensive models come with stainless steel tubs. Frigidaire dishwashers are an exceptional value and offer comparable features to the Bosch brand. Their Frigidaire Professional line of dishwashers is made in one of the Electrolux factories in Italy and they have added many new quality features to the product line. The Satellite spray arms and OrbitClean wash system offer great washing performance. The new models are quieter, offer excellent cleaning performance, and dry the dishes better than many other brands.

In this article we've decided to compare two popular models at similar price points to see how the brands stack up. If you are in the process of researching a new dishwasher, you'll want to read this article!

Best Top Loading Washer - GE vs Maytag (Agitator Models)

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019, 10:00:00 AM

 

Many of the new highest capacity and most energy efficient washers have impellers in the bottom of the wash tub that perform the wash action and clean the clothes. These washers look enormous because they have no obstructions in the tub, but they have to be loaded properly to avoid tangling and to allow the clothes to be cleaned properly.

If you are not sold on the performance of these new designs, GE and Maytag still make agitator models that are very energy efficient and have big tub capacities. These are just a few of the factors to consider when researching a new washing machine (check out our washing machine buying guide for more info).  Most of the new washing machines are very different in design with direct drive motors and load sensors to control water usage, but GE and Maytag have packed most of this new technology into these models while sticking with the traditional agitator design that some people prefer.  

Let’s try to determine the best top loading washer for you by comparing two of their best agitator washer models.

Top Loading Washers - Discover the Benefits

Posted by Bob Allaire on Nov 18, 2019, 8:30:00 AM

If you are in the market for a new washer, you are probably trying to learn about every style and option available to you. One option worth exploring is top loading washers.

Top load washers offer a variety of tub sizes and offer a similar water and energy-saving story to that of front loaders. They load from the top so you don't have to bend over when loading and unloading the washer. This also eliminates the need for costly bases. Some don’t have agitators, giving you more room in the tub, allowing you to wash larger items such as quilts and bed spreads. (Side note: You can find even more information on washing machines in our washing machine buying guide!)
