Orlina Metais Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. How meticulous are you about wiping up after spills? Electric smoothtop ranges need to be cleaned carefully after every use or you can get a residue buildup on top, Franke says. Smoothtops also require a special cleaner. If you're not the constantly cleaning type you may want to consider electric coils, which are inexpensive and easy to replace, or a gas cooktop with sealed burners so spills can't leak down underneath.
Orlina Metais Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. While online restaurant supply houses bring in goods from splatter covers and barbecue spatulas to cases of wine glasses, a few of the more modest-size items also seem to fly off the websites, both because they're better quality and because they look like the stuff used by "real" chefs and caterers.
Huette Monin Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. 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."
Orlina Metais Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. "True chef-style cooking requires high heat, which means gas heat," says interior designer Sue Adams of Andover, Mass. While many retailers advertise a "professional" line of electric ranges, they just don't put out enough BTUs for flashing fish or searing meats. "You can't have a pro kitchen with an electric cooktop," she says.
Huette Monin Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. Are you in a hurry in the kitchen? If you're always scrambling to get dinner ready fast, you might want a combination thermal/convection oven, which cooks with a fan that circulates hot air so items cook more quickly and brown more easily. Convection ovens have improved dramatically in the last few years, says, Sharon Franke, director of food appliances for Good Housekeeping magazine and the Good Housekeeping Institute, which evaluates new ranges on a regular basis.
Francoise Joi Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. 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.
Francoise Joi Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. 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.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Appliances, December 07th, 2017. 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."
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Appliances, December 06th, 2017. 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."
