First, there was craft beer. Then, craft cocktails. Now, there's craft ice: the craze that's sweeping the nation! Or, well, it's sweeping fans of craft drinks, anyway.
Have you spent longer than you'd like to admit watching YouTube videos on how to make clear ice spheres? Do you like the idea of impressing your guests with the perfect sphere ice plopped into a glass of fine bourbon or a mojito? Or maybe you like to entertain and want an effortless way to impress your guests? Somehow, LG knew what you were thinking, and they created a refrigerator that can automatically make fancy ice for you.
If you've heard about the Frigidaire stove with air fry and want to learn more, you're in the right place! Air frying has become a hot trend over the past few years, and countertop air fryers are popular. But why not save counter space and grab an oven that can do it for you!
Although these products are relatively new, so far the customer reviews have been positive. And outside of air fry mode, the ranges offer solid features and performance.
A stacked washer dryer combo can be an ideal option for apartments and small homes where space is at a premium. While all-in-one washer dryer combo machines totally combine the two laundry appliances into one space, the Frigidaire Laundry Center takes a different approach to saving you space and money.
If you are moving into a small apartment or a tiny house, or are otherwise just constrained for space, you may be scouring the internet to learn more about compact washer and dryer models. Compact laundry appliances are more common in Europe than in the US, but maybe those Europeans are onto something! Compact washers and dryers can be a little more difficult to come by than full size models, and there isn't as much information out there about them.
Here are some things you should consider with a compact washer and dryer, plus reviews of two highly rated models from GE and Bosch.
Statistics show that dishwashers are a necessity for most families, right up there with clothes washers and dryers. Having an appliance clean up after a meal rather than hand washing is preferred as people are busy with work, school, sports, activities, and hopefully, the occasional relaxing movie night. Plus, dishwashers use less water than hand washing and can sanitize dishes and cutlery with super-hot water.
Many spacious homes have the kitchen either open to the living quarters or very close by within listening distance, so having a quiet dishwasher can be critical. There's nothing worse than hearing a continuous humming sound while you're trying to read a book or talk with friends and family. In some cases, dishwashers can run over two hours depending on the cycle, so quietness matters!
Let's compare Bosch and KitchenAid and take a close look at two of their quietest dishwashers under $1,000. (Before we dig in, check out our writeup on dishwasher decibel levels for more info!)
If you’ve been around the block a few times, you might remember the loneliest man in town, better known as the Maytag Repair Man. For many years starting in 1967, Maytag ran advertisements with this bored and melancholy-looking 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 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 certain major components of all of their products to demonstrate that commitment.
While Maytag offers a full line of appliances, this article will be dedicated to Maytag dishwasher reviews. We will look at three different models offered by the brand, one front control and two top control. These dishwashers are all designed and assembled in the USA, and Maytag boasts that their models have “the most powerful motor on the market” that can even take care of hard-to-clean food stains like dried egg yolk. All Maytag dishwashers come with a 10-year limited parts warranty on the racks, chopper blade, and stainless steel tub - an industry-leading warranty for sure!

Your dishwasher may seem to be getting louder by the day. Over time, the motor, pump assembly, and other parts wear out and cause vibrations that result in louder operation. On top of that, older dishwashers just don't have the design features to compete with new models when it comes to noise. There are dishwashers available today that are literally whisper-quiet!
