The Double Oven Range - Features & Product Reviews

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 20, 2022 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.

The Professional Gas Range - Info & 4 High End Range Reviews

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 20, 2022 9:00 AM 

 

If you've been out looking at professional or pro ranges for your kitchen and are astounded by the prices, we have some good news for you. Many consumers want the power and looks of a professional gas range, but when they start looking at the prices of pro ranges from companies like Wolf, Viking, and Thermador, they quickly change their minds. 

If you want one of these true professional ranges from an ultra premium manufacturer, you're going to have to pay the premium price! However, you can find some great models with MSRPs under $6,000. We'll go over some interesting options on the market today - there is a broad spectrum of options available, from true commercial ranges outfitted for residential use to models that have the pro range look but not as many commercial features.

Garage Ready Freezer - Best Chest Freezer Models

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 13, 2022 9:30 AM 

So you're looking for a garage ready chest freezer. Options are limited, and it can get confusing when you're trying to research your options online - a freezer may get tagged as a "garage ready" model by a website simply because people have left reviews stating that they have installed it in a garage. In mild climates where the temperature never gets much below 40 degrees, you don't technically need a garage ready model, although installing an "indoor" freezer in a garage could void the warranty.

If you live in the northeast US or other areas with freezing winters, you'll need to check that the freezer you choose can handle below-freezing temperatures.

5 Largest Side by Side Refrigerator Models of 2022

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Apr 1, 2022 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.

LG Refrigerators with UVnano Water Dispenser - Info, Review, & More

Posted by Jeff Allaire on Mar 16, 2022 10:38 AM 

 

Picture your pre-pandemic life. It’s probably a lot different from now - from how we socialize to the way we value cleanliness and hygiene more. We’ve been washing our hands more thoroughly, covering our faces with masks, sanitizing items we frequently touch, and taking other precautions now to protect ourselves and others from spreading the COVID-19 virus.

This level of care extends to our own homes. Different home items with UV light have started to garner attention lately because of their germ-killing ability, and LG has recently introduced refrigerators that have UV light sanitizers in the water dispenser. Now, you may be wondering… what is the UVnano dispenser all about? Will it take cleanliness in the kitchen to the next level? Here’s what we found!
