"A pro fridge like a Sub-Zero is huge and it s really meant for people who need to store a lot of ingredients for constant cooking says Sue Adams."They do have better seals on the doors and compartments at different temps so different things won t spoil and special gaskets so odors won t go from one compartment to another.". But if you re not a fervent cook the big fridge is unnecessary she says."You can afford to let a lot of milk go sour for the difference in price between a Sub-Zero and a residential model she says. If you do opt for a Sub-Zero refrigerator Adams advises against the optional glass doors."Do you really want people to see inside your refrigerator?" she asks."And if all they d be seeing is your takeout boxes you may want to reconsider the purchase altogether."
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."
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."
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.
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."
So the turkey roasted then cooled then roasted then cooled and I spent several sleepless nights wondering if I d poisoned my nearest and dearest with inadequately cooked poultry. I finally saved my dollars and bought a spanking new smoothtop electric range. It s amazingly easy to clean the electric elements do a great job on everything from high-temperature searing to low-temperature simmering and the oven is large enough to accommodate an entire holiday feast (and cook it at the right temperature!).
