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.
The cooktops provide a number of benefits Fisher Knott notes. Foremost is safety especially in homes with children since there is no heat on the cooking surface only in the pan. Energy consumption can be cut by 10 percent to 20 percent by using an induction cooktop rather than a more conventional type of stove again since only the pan is heated according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
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."
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.
If you want to add color and pattern to your kitchen this toaster is a great choice. It can only handle two slices of toast at once however so this is a better option for a single person or couple. For those of you who cook a lot a beautiful set of salt and pepper cellars would look lovely sitting out on your countertop. You could even add a glass olive oil cruet to the mix which would look great and be super handy as you re whipping up delicious meals.
