There are generally strong opinions when it comes to the choice of leaving out kitchen utensils or not. I tend to prefer to keep utensils in a drawer however for those with limited space (or those who like to keep their utensils handy) a good way of keeping things looking pulled together and sleek is to purchase uniform utensils that all have one style or color. This will go a long way in avoiding the"utensil mosh pit" that can result when you are leaving a bunch of mismatched pieces together on your countertop.
My new stove changed my life and I m not kidding. After a decade of constant struggle with an ancient Amana range (just like the ones Monty Hall used to give away in the 1970s on"Let s Make a Deal!") the final blow came on Thanksgiving. I put the lovingly stuffed 20-lb. turkey in the oven and set it at 325 degrees only to find after hours of basting and checking meat thermometers and fiddling with the dial that for some inexplicable reason the oven wouldn t work at any temperature lower than 350 degrees.
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."
If you love the idea of a refrigerator or freezer drawer then you ll be smitten with this dishwasher drawer. This is a great solution for a kitchen where you may not even have space for a slim dishwasher. Believe it or not you can fit up to 12 plates inside.
Even though online restaurant supply companies have deep discounts on gas cooktops and ranges you may be in for a disappointment if you hope to save on one for your home."Ranges for restaurants have different specs and they aren t right for residential use — one could literally blow up your home says Herschberger. The differing requirements run from commercial venting to bigger gas lines says Weil. Even if your spacious kitchen design could accommodate the specs your state s Health Department may ban the use of restaurant ranges in home settings."And buying a range like that over the Internet will almost surely void the manufacturer s warranty she says. Commercial outdoor grills are a different story."We sell lots of them to homeowners and of course they don t need the venting says Weil"but before making such a large investment you should definitely check with your Health Department to find out what it allows."
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."
