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.
If you ve been bitten by the all freezer bug take the benefits and shortfalls into consideration before choosing one for a remodel says Justin Breckle branch manager for Roth Concept Center in St. Louis. His company has lavish showrooms in six American cities that display the latest appliances in complete kitchens. Pick a size based on what your space will allow and how often you use the freezer. While units like the 36-inch Sub-Zero All Freezer are very attractive"you should first consider how much food you store" he says."If you re the type who goes to the store every couple of days for the freshest stuff or eats mostly organic produce you probably don t need a separate freezer at all. If on the other hand you have lots of kids or you re always on the go and eat lots of frozen dinners that large freezer might make sense."
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."
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.
Is your kitchen currently plumbed for gas or electric? As much as you may long for the real flames of gas burners it can be very expensive to run a gas line to your kitchen if there s not one there already depending on the distance BTUs needed etc. Generally your best bet is to go with whatever type appliance your kitchen is already set to handle.
"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.
