Counter space is truly precious in a tiny kitchen. This means that a compact cube microwave is a perfect choice when you don t have a lot of room. If you don t have any space on your counter consider putting your microwave on top of your fridge or even on a separate cart in your kitchen.
Look at the smaller models."As the population ages and more older buyers don t do stairs it s becoming more appealing to replace the chest model in the basement with a model you can work into the design of your older kitchen. An undercounter model with 5 cubic feet of space is plenty for most people or you might want to consider a freezer drawer."
Leave the chest units out of sight. Not that there s anything wrong with the reliable standby for freezing freshly caught fish the summer berry harvest or loads of casseroles for maternity leave. But chest freezers are just not attractive enough to look at in the kitchen so don t count on them as an integral part of your design.
Are you in a hurry in the kitchen? If you re always scrambling to get dinner ready fast you might want a combination thermal/convection oven which cooks with a fan that circulates hot air so items cook more quickly and brown more easily. Convection ovens have improved dramatically in the last few years says Sharon Franke director of food appliances for Good Housekeeping magazine and the Good Housekeeping Institute which evaluates new ranges on a regular basis.
So the turkey roasted then cooled then roasted then cooled and I spent several sleepless nights wondering if I d poisoned my nearest and dearest with inadequately cooked poultry. I finally saved my dollars and bought a spanking new smoothtop electric range. It s amazingly easy to clean the electric elements do a great job on everything from high-temperature searing to low-temperature simmering and the oven is large enough to accommodate an entire holiday feast (and cook it at the right temperature!).
What s your cooking style? If you do lots of stir-frying or heat large quantities of food you ll want at least one high-heat element or burner as mentioned above. Many ranges include a wok ring which sits on top of the burner grate to hold a wok. If you simmer lots of sauces you ll want a"simmer burner which cooks at a low temp. Check with the manufacturer on these;"a simmer technically is 190 degrees Franke says and some low-heat burners are really warming burners because they maintain a 150-degree temperature which is fine for keeping a dinner warm but not for simmering your gravy.
