Bosch Refrigerator Reviews - 4 Top Models

Posted by Alex Frank on Aug 23, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

Over the years, German engineering has become synonymous with the production of high-quality products. That’s why Bosch is one of the world’s largest suppliers of automotive parts in the world and the reason they make high-performance household appliances.

In 1933, Bosch came out with their first electric refrigerator and they have been making innovations in the appliance industry ever since. Bosch notably created what they called "Vita Fresh" technology in 1989 which substantially increased the length of time produce stayed fresh and crisp. They set standards in environmental manufacturing in the 1990s and, more recently, have created a line of connected appliances that can be controlled and monitored from your computer or smartphone.

In this post, we will review a few of Bosch’s current refrigerators and explore the differences and similarities between them.

Speed Queen Stackable Washer and Dryer Review (Built to Last 25 Years)

Posted by Alex Frank on Aug 19, 2019 9:10:00 AM

 

After 20 years of use, it isn’t uncommon for an old washer or dryer to bite the dust, leaving the owner tasked with researching new options. Once they start reading reviews online, however, the unsuspecting shopper may be dismayed with how many customers say that their modern laundry machines died after only six years or so! How can this be when the old machines, apart from an occasional repair, hardly caused any issues for over two decades?

Well, the answer is simple. They just don’t make things like they used to... BUT WAIT! Not all hope is lost, for we still have Speed Queen, and they're making machines just as durable as the good ol’ days! They currently offer a unified stacked laundry center with a front load washer and an electric or gas dryer for people looking for compact laundry options.

Bosch Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Bosch?

Posted by Alex Frank on Jul 14, 2019 8:00:00 AM

 

For years, Bosch dishwashers have held a powerful presence in the appliance market since they began to focus on creating quieter dishwashers. With legendary German engineering behind their products, consumers associate the brand with high quality and performance. And for good reason - all of their dishwashers go through 485 quality checks before leaving the factory to ensure that the products are working properly, and they're "the quietest dishwasher brand in the US!" Most Bosch dishwashers for the US are made in North Carolina, although their Benchmark series is made in Germany.

They have a large array of dishwashers available, and while looking at every one of them would be a daunting task, we will look at a few of their most popular models in this article so that you can get a good idea of what this brand has to offer and the different features available. We’ll start with one of Bosch’s more basic dishwashers from the Ascenta series and go on up to the 800 series.

Before we dig into the reviews, we'll go over what cool features are available from the over 100 dishwashers Bosch offers, and what the different lineups have to offer.

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.

Frigidaire Professional Refrigerator Reviews - Features, Ratings, Prices

Posted by Alex Frank on May 8, 2019 9:00:00 AM

 

Choosing the right refrigerator is an important task when updating your kitchen, especially since it's a 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 choice!

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.

Maytag Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Maytag?

Posted by Alex Frank on Mar 28, 2019 9:30:00 AM

 

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! Some of Maytag's dishwashers also have an innovative upper rack design that is tiered like stadium seating to make it easier to fit large items like mixing bowls as well as smaller ones like coffee mugs.

Let’s dive in, starting with Maytag’s most economical model.

Frigidaire Dishwasher Reviews – Should You Consider a Frigidaire?

Posted by Alex Frank on Mar 28, 2019 9:00:00 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. If you are researching new dishwashers, don't overlook Frigidaire.

When customers come into our store looking for a new dishwasher, they often ask a couple of questions: “Which dishwasher has the best performance?” and “Which dishwashers have the least amount of problems?”

We'll provide five KitchenAid dishwasher reviews in this article, starting with one of their more basic models and proceeding to higher-end models with lots of bells and whistles.
