ADA Compliant Appliances - Reviews, Features, Prices

Posted by Todd Buehler on Oct 11, 2021 8:30 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.

Portable Dishwasher Reviews - Discover All of the Options!

Posted by Todd Buehler on Oct 11, 2021 8:15 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 small kitchens. 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 a Danby countertop dishwasher, too! (For more information on choosing a new dishwasher, take a look at our dishwasher buying guide.)

If you think of your clothes dryer as being one of the simplest appliances in your home, think again. Most people think that it just turns a drum and blows heat, but there's quite a bit going on inside that big metal box! If you are in the process of researching a new dryer, you know there are many brands, models, and features to consider (you can check out our dryer buyer's guide for more info). We'll compare LG and Maytag to help you determine the best clothes dryer brand for you.

In order to compare the two models, we need to first look at some of the technology behind drying clothes. Clothes dryers have a variety of safety features to not only go easy on your clothes by preventing over-drying, but also keep your home safe if something malfunctions. The average system will have a temperature range of 80 to 190 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on selected cycles and settings. There are two main ways for a dryer to keep track of the drying progress: moisture sensors and thermistors.
