When deciding what to leave out on your counter and what not to leave out ask yourself this: how many times a week do I use it? For items that you use more than once a week go ahead and leave them out. I use my handheld vacuum on the daily and this one is so beautiful I almost want to hang it on the wall like it s a piece of art.
How meticulous are you about wiping up after spills? Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you re not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils which are inexpensive and easy to replace or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can t leak down underneath.
Always read the fine print and forget about those super-hot commercial ranges — that s the advice of restaurant equipment suppliers for consumers who want to save money on pro chef-quality kitchen gear by ordering online. While purchasing true restaurant equipment at a discount price may sound like an easy choice you actually need to be more careful about what you buy.
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."
While online restaurant supply houses bring in goods from splatter covers and barbecue spatulas to cases of wine glasses a few of the more modest-size items also seem to fly off the websites both because they re better quality and because they look like the stuff used by"real" chefs and caterers.
Another beautiful somewhat universal choice for a sleek kitchen counter setup is a great knife block. Sharp knives are a chef s most important tool (from what I hear!) so a chic block is a necessity if you want to add some glam to your countertop.
