7 Must Have Kitchen Appliances for the Holiday SeasonThe holiday season is when families and loved ones come together to enjoy delicious food and drinks. If you’ve got the responsibility to host a celebration like this, you will have to make preparations and still have time to spend with your guests. This can be tricky, but you can make your life easier if you have the right kitchen appliances. But, a great kitchen isn’t just for the holiday season; it’s the gift that keeps on giving for the entire year! In this article, we will take a look at seven kitchen appliances that we believe are essential to get the most out of your holiday hosting experience. A Warming Drawer Any holiday host will find that a warming drawer can be a real help when they’re preparing food for larger groups of people. When you’re working on many dishes at the same time, it’s very difficult to keep food warm until you’re ready to serve it. Meal prep takes time, and certain courses cannot be cooked until the guests have arrived. Keeping food hot is important to maintain food safety when you won’t have time to reheat or check each food item individually. Look for a unit with a variable temperature and humidity controls to keep your food in excellent shape until you’re ready to serve. A sleek warming drawer may also have a modern aesthetic appeal to complement your kitchen. 2. A Double Wall Oven A double wall oven allows you to cook more food at the

New Wolf Induction Range Coming to UAKCNEW TO MARKET, IT'S THE WOLF INDUCTION RANGETwo New Induction Ranges from WolfExclusive - Only Induction Range Available in 36" SizeInduction cooktops are very popular and many of the cooking brands have a variety of them. For example, Bosch has 8 models of induction cooktops. Though induction cooktops have been available in one form or another since the 1980's, it's been the last 10 years that induction has really caught the attention of American consumers. While induction cooktops are widespread, fewer brands have been offering induction ranges. Now that seems to be changing, too. Wolf has taken it a step further by introducing both a 30"and an exclusive 36" wide version. One might think that's just not a big deal, but I'd disagree. In the luxury category 36" ranges are very common. So, being the only manufacturer of a 36" induction range is a big deal.But let's back up a bit and discuss why induction is making its mark in the range category as a whole. It's no secret that cooking with gas is a strong preference in Southern California. Unfortunately, there are instances where gas fuel is not available or practical. Induction to the rescue! With all the speed and power of gas (and then some), precision controls, and easy cleanup, it's hard to argue against induction. All the benefits of gas with no flame! The smooth top is attractive and contributes to a sleek look across the countertop. The 30" version has 4 induction elements, and the 36"

Porcelain in AppliancesWhere did the porcelain go? Back in the day, nearly all major appliances used porcelain somewhere. Dishwashers had porcelain tubs. Washers and dryers had porcelain tops and lids, and most washers had porcelain tubs. Early ranges used porcelain everywhere, and even today ranges use porcelain oven interiors and many have porcelain tops. Refrigerators evolved from porcelain inside and out (including crispers and liners) to now having no porcelain whatsoever. Porcelain finishes were desirable and manufacturers bragged about them.Making porcelain on steel appliance parts is a complex and expensive process. In addition, environmental issues exist not only at the manufacturing level, but also in disposing of appliances at the end of life. Therefore, over time manufacturers have greatly reduced the use of porcelain in appliances.Inexpensive dishwashers now have plastic tubs, and upscale models feature stainless steel interiors. Refrigerators have plastic crispers and interiors which also allow energy-saving foam-in-place insulation. While you might find washers and dryers with porcelain tops, many now feature a high gloss, durable, painted finish. Inside, very few washers have porcelain tubs. Inexpensive washers might have plastic tubs, while the premium models have tubs made of stainless steel. However, range ovens and built-in ovens still use primarily porcelain for their oven interiors.As a consumer, you should take note of the appliances you have that have porcelain finishes or interiors. When it comes time to dispose of these products, they'll need to be properly recycled. Check local or state regulations and find a certified recycling center for your appliance.
