ADA Compliant Appliances - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 6, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

Not everyone knows about the benefits of ADA compliant appliances and how they can make daily life with a physical disability just a little easier. We all depend on kitchen appliances to get a jumpstart on our day. Whether it's opening up the refrigerator for a glass of cold orange juice or using the range to pan-fry an egg, we often turn to our appliances first thing in the morning and throughout the day. One way or another, we rely on these major appliances in our everyday lives to simplify things - but for someone with disabilities, using standard appliances not designed with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accommodations can make appliances a lot less convenient - and, in some cases, dangerous.

Thankfully, there are brands that manufacture products designed for people with physical disabilities. Although they aren't the only factor to consider if you are building or renovating a home for accessibility, they're definitely important. In this article, we'll take a look into a variety of ADA-compliant appliances that can make a difference in the daily lives of so many of us. GE Appliances pops up quite often in this post - their website has a dedicated section for ADA compliant appliances.

Side Venting Dryer - Need a Good Side Venting Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on May 4, 2021 11:00 AM 

 

There are several important questions to consider when doing your research on a new dryer. How it will vent is one of them. Depending on the configuration of your laundry room or closet, you may find that you need a good side venting option.

Standard dryer installation calls for rear venting, but due to space limitations or configuration, you may need to look for a model that allows side venting. Not all models do! It's important to bring this up with your local appliance salesperson because different brands and models have different restrictions for the options to install side venting. For example, you may only be able to side vent on one side of the dryer - most gas dryers can only be side vented to the left because of the burner housing. Dryers with "four-way venting" usually will allow you to install a side vent on either side.

This is especially important if you have an older home or custom kitchen that may have unusual dimensions. Most brands make standard-size models, but there are some specialty sizes that are available to fit into spaces that are non-standard.

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!

Portable Dishwasher Reviews - Discover All of the Options!

Posted by Todd Buehler on Feb 25, 2021 10:00 AM 

 

The dishwasher is a staple appliance wherever kitchens are found, but not all kitchens are compatible with the installation of a traditional built-in dishwasher. The portable dishwasher is a great alternative for apartments, offices, gathering facilities, and homes. Designed to hook up to your kitchen sink, you can run your portable dishwasher and then tuck it out of the way until the next load of dirty dishes is ready. 

If you don't have room for a built-in dishwasher, a portable dishwasher might be the perfect option for you. We'll go over the features of a typical portable dishwasher and compare countertop dishwasher models to full size portable dishwashers. We'll also review a popular Whirlpool portable dishwasher and Danby countertop dishwasher, too! (For more information on choosing a new dishwasher, take a look at our dishwasher buying guide.)
