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.
There are only two drawbacks to consider. The first is pricing which tends to run approximately 20 percent higher than more conventional stoves she estimates. But she has found that for most clients especially in the mid- to upper-end kitchens that incremental addition isn t a deal-breaker."Most clients are looking to upgrade their kitchens when they remodel and they are looking for better performance rather than the cheapest price. I ve never found induction cooktops to be a hard sell when they see what they provide."
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."
Consider what kind of ice would be nice. When one of the main attractions of a separate freezer is more abundant ice you need to do your homework says Justin."Some units have crushed or filtered water ice some do not. Whether that should influence your purchase just depends on how picky you are about your ice." If on further examination you discover that the increased ice is the primary reason you re buying an all freezer it might be lots easier just to fit an undercounter ice maker into your remodel. Sub-Zero makes one model and lesser known companies such as Avanti and Hoshizaki make others.
While I don t cook very often one of my favorite items to leave out on my counter is a beautiful teak cutting board. In fact when I need a cutting board for dinner prep I tend to grab a not-as-pretty but easy-to-clean board and keep the teak board out mostly for decoration.
What s your cooking style? If you do lots of stir-frying or heat large quantities of food you ll want at least one high-heat element or burner as mentioned above. Many ranges include a wok ring which sits on top of the burner grate to hold a wok. If you simmer lots of sauces you ll want a"simmer burner which cooks at a low temp. Check with the manufacturer on these;"a simmer technically is 190 degrees Franke says and some low-heat burners are really warming burners because they maintain a 150-degree temperature which is fine for keeping a dinner warm but not for simmering your gravy.
