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!).
Consider what kind of ice would be nice. When one of the main attractions of a separate freezer is more abundant ice you need to do your homework says Justin."Some units have crushed or filtered water ice some do not. Whether that should influence your purchase just depends on how picky you are about your ice." If on further examination you discover that the increased ice is the primary reason you re buying an all freezer it might be lots easier just to fit an undercounter ice maker into your remodel. Sub-Zero makes one model and lesser known companies such as Avanti and Hoshizaki make others.
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.
If you want to add color and pattern to your kitchen this toaster is a great choice. It can only handle two slices of toast at once however so this is a better option for a single person or couple. For those of you who cook a lot a beautiful set of salt and pepper cellars would look lovely sitting out on your countertop. You could even add a glass olive oil cruet to the mix which would look great and be super handy as you re whipping up delicious meals.
If you re just putting up with stainless steel when you d prefer a pro-grade stove with some color consider Lacanche s double-oven commercial stoves."They have excellent features you wouldn t find in the typical American oven like dual fuel and a warming oven for people who really want to cook says Linda Applewhite an interior designer in Sausalito Calif."Here on the West Coast we re seeing a trend towards French stoves and one of the reasons is that they re professional-looking and also come in all these great enamel colors."
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.
