Don t try to work a giant unit into an old kitchen design."There s just not a place for it" Justin says."It s much more likely you could incorporate an undercounter or drawer unit into an existing design."
You can get more options than you ve ever imagined in a new range from a stove that actually keeps food cold then turns itself on and cooks it to one that includes a microwave drawer as well as an oven. Features that used to be considered premium are now standard on many ranges including smoothtops sealed burners on gas cooktops and self-cleaning ovens. Even stainless-steel finishes which continue to be in high demand have dropped in price according to Consumersearch.com a website that evaluates product reviews from a wide variety of sources.
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.
Place the all freezer carefully for some improved kitchen traffic flow."The way a typical kitchen is set up the refrigerator freezer is in the most accessible place" says Justin."But with a combined unit you re using the refrigerator 90 percent of the time and the freezer just 10 percent. If you purchase an all freezer it doesn t need to go in the most accessible spot. It can go off to the corner somewhere."
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."
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."
