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."
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.
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.
For those of you that are smoothie obsessed a blender might be on your daily kitchen appliance checklist. In that case you might want to go with a retro option like this pretty silver blender. It has a 50 s diner vibe which kind of makes me want to use it for milkshakes instead of smoothies.
Another overlooked fact: consider your home s resale value. If you re going to the expense of including high-end grills surfaces and appliances outside don t neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don t forget to include comfortable seating.
