Speed Queen vs Fisher & Paykel Washer - Alternatives for 2020

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 27, 2019 10:00 AM 

 

If you are looking to compare two awesome washing machine options that won't break the bank, you're in luck. We've singled out two great top loading agitator models from two niche brands that may be just what you are looking for when shopping for a new machine. Unfortunately, Fisher & Paykel has discontinued their popular agitator washer as of late 2019, so this article has become an "in memoriam." Don't worry - we'll give you other agitator washer brands to consider!

Speed Queen and Fisher & Paykel are not quite as well known as some of the other juggernaut appliance brands like Whirlpool, Frigidaire and GE, but that doesn't mean they don't deliver great products. Speed Queen is a specialty laundry manufacturer headquartered in Wisconsin that has been making great laundry products for both the commercial and domestic markets in the US for over 100 years. Fisher & Paykel is based in New Zealand and has been in operation since 1934. They have gained wide exposure in the US in the past 20 years and introduced many innovative products to the market, including a one-of-a-kind dish drawer dishwasher that made them famous with US consumers. Their agitator washer was a surprising hit when it came out a few years ago.

The 5 Best Over The Range Microwaves for 2020

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

Panel Ready Dishwashers - Are They a Good Option?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 11, 2019 4:00 PM 

 

If you are designing a new kitchen and want to achieve a modern and professional style, you may want to consider a panel ready dishwasher, also known as an overlay dishwasher. This style allows you to have your cabinetmaker design a panel for the front of your dishwasher which will match the doors on your kitchen cabinets and install a matching handle. These models are designed to hold the custom panel's weight and add a nice look to the kitchen. They may pair well with a panel ready refrigerator and help you achieve that integrated high-end look you desire.

There are many other factors to consider when researching a dishwasher, but if looks are a top concern, a panel ready model may be what you need. For more information to help you choose a new dishwasher, check out our dishwasher buying guide!

Coil Top Electric Range Reviews - Frigidaire vs GE

Posted by Todd Buehler on Nov 8, 2019 10:30 AM 

 

Many of us grew up in a household with a coil top electric range or remember our grandparents having one. With the advent of smooth top ranges, these have become less and less popular (check out our article comparing smoothtop vs coil top ranges to learn more). However, these ranges are still the perfect fit for many buyers!

Coil top electric ranges are extremely durable and easier to maintain due to the “Plug and Play” design of the elements. Coil elements simply plug into a receptacle under the main top and rest in the drip bowl, making replacement a breeze if the element is damaged or worn out.

Are you in the market for a steam dryer and looking for a great option? In this article, we'll delve into steam and discuss one of the best selling steam cycle dryer models out there.  

Steam cycles are very useful in dryers, and have been around since the late 2000s. They can be used to freshen up items that are clean but may have been stored for a long time or worn just once. They can also be used to eliminate wrinkles and odors during drying cycles. Steam washers tend to focus on stain removal, wrinkle reduction, and sanitize cycles as well.
