Portable Dishwasher Reviews - Discover All of the Options!

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 27, 2020 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.)

Front Load vs Top Load Washer - Which is Better?

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 23, 2020 10:00 AM 

 

Shopping for a clothes washer these days can be somewhat confusing as the manufacturers incorporate new technologies to conserve water and save energy. It's hard to argue against saving energy, whether it be fuel for our homes and cars, or simply saving electricity by changing our lighting to more efficient fixtures. New technology in laundry equipment has enabled us to save on water, electricity, gas, and even soaps (thanks to concentrated HE laundry detergent), while taking better care of our clothes. There's just a bit of a learning curve you have to deal with!

Top Refrigerator Brands: Bosch vs Fisher & Paykel Refrigerator Reviews

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 9, 2020 10:15 AM 

 

 

If you are shopping for a new refrigerator, you want to be sure to look at all of the top refrigerator brands. There are so many brands to choose from that sometimes it's hard to differentiate one from the other. Maybe you are accustomed to the mainstay US brands that you grew up with like GE, Whirlpool and Frigidaire - which are all great options. Or maybe you've been hearing lots about the recently popular Korean brands, LG and Samsung - known for their smart appliances. 

That said, in this article we want to take a look at two top refrigerator brands that you may not have considered: Bosch and Fisher & Paykel. These lesser-known boutique brands have lots to offer. In this article, we'll give you some great background on their products and delve into some specific models.

ADA Compliant Appliances - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 3, 2020 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 eggs, sausage or bacon, 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.

Amana Microwaves - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Jan 3, 2020 8:30 AM 

 

Amana, now owned by Whirlpool, is a value brand offering budget appliances with simple features and solid reliability. If you're looking for an inexpensive over the range or countertop microwave, Amana has some great options. 

Amana offers several "universal microwaves" with no handle, eliminating the need to match handles with other appliances such as your refrigerator or range. If you bought an entire suite of appliances a few years back and now have a dead microwave on your hands, this Amana microwave could be a lifesaver as a replacement model that still matches with your kitchen. Handle styles change. The handle style of your beautifully matching four-piece Frigidaire or Whirlpool appliance package from three years ago may no longer be available. So a microwave with no handle is an easy solution to achieving a seamless matched look in your kitchen!

Amana used to offer an over the range model with a handle to match other Amana appliances, model AMV6507RGS, but it has been discontinued. We'll focus on the no handle models.

Quietest Dishwasher - The Top 10 Quietest Models

Posted by Todd Buehler on Dec 21, 2019 10:00 AM 

 

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!

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.
