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."
For many of us our coffee maker is often the one appliance that gets used the most. If you re ready to up your at-home coffee game you might want to consider a Nespresso. This pod-based espresso/cappuccino maker is easy to use makes delicious coffee and looks pretty snazzy sitting out on your counter. If there s anything that can break a daily Starbucks habit this might be it.
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.
"True chef-style cooking requires high heat which means gas heat says interior designer Sue Adams of Andover Mass. While many retailers advertise a"professional" line of electric ranges they just don t put out enough BTUs for flashing fish or searing meats."You can t have a pro kitchen with an electric cooktop she says.
Counter space is truly precious in a tiny kitchen. This means that a compact cube microwave is a perfect choice when you don t have a lot of room. If you don t have any space on your counter consider putting your microwave on top of your fridge or even on a separate cart in your kitchen.
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."
