If you re a fan of the vintage look you might fall in love with this slim SMEG refrigerator. This retro-style fridge comes in 11 different colors and can be ordered with either a right- or left-hinge door which ensures it will work best in your kitchen no matter your layout.
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.
Place the all freezer carefully for some improved kitchen traffic flow."The way a typical kitchen is set up the refrigerator freezer is in the most accessible place" says Justin."But with a combined unit you re using the refrigerator 90 percent of the time and the freezer just 10 percent. If you purchase an all freezer it doesn t need to go in the most accessible spot. It can go off to the corner somewhere."
The other drawback is that only magnetic (i.e. steel) cookware can be used. The steel content of the cookware can be tested by taking a small magnet to the store. But Fisher Knott says clients don t bat an eye at this limitation either."Today cooking has become an important part of the social activities of the home and good cookware is part of that. Often buying new cookware is part of the kitchen remodel anyway. We explain that the cooktop and cookware are part of a complete cooking system so they plan on that."
The warming drawer is a pro-quality feature that s ideal for homes where a quality home-cooked meal may be ready before everyone s ready to eat. Ken Dempsey has one in his own kitchen and says"If you have a schedule-crazy household like me once you have one you d never want to live without it again. It keeps food at the ideal temperature without drying it out and without cooking it more."
Living with a super tiny kitchen? (Me too.) You re probably always making tough decisions based on what you can and can t do in your space. And sometimes it probably feels like a big puzzle. Living with a tiny kitchen often means that you can t even fit standard-sized appliances in your cook space. But the good news is there are lots of options out there for more compact appliances designed especially for people like us.
