Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Appliances, November 26th, 2017. The cooktops provide a number of benefits, Fisher Knott notes. Foremost is safety, especially in homes with children, since there is no heat on the cooking surface, only in the pan. Energy consumption can be cut by 10 percent to 20 percent by using an induction cooktop rather than a more conventional type of stove, again since only the pan is heated, according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy.
Helaine Mallory Kitchen Appliances, November 26th, 2017. 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.
Huette Monin Kitchen Accessories, November 27th, 2017. Most kitchens have dish soap and hand soap at the sink, so you might as well keep them in pretty bottles. In this black-and-white kitchen by designer Christopher Grubb, the soap is showcased in two pretty, glass bottles and on a metal tray. If you don’t have glass pump bottles, you can also simply choose a soap that comes in pretty bottles.
Francoise Joi Kitchen Appliances, November 26th, 2017. Always read the fine print and forget about those super-hot commercial ranges — that's the advice of restaurant equipment suppliers for consumers who want to save money on pro chef-quality kitchen gear by ordering online. While purchasing true restaurant equipment at a discount price may sound like an easy choice, you actually need to be more careful about what you buy.
Orlina Metais Kitchen Accessories, November 27th, 2017. Forget about the "vertical metal handles versus wooden knobs" decision of decades past. Designers today are vying to create innovative kitchen drawer and cabinet pulls, and consumers looking for an affordable kitchen update are the beneficiaries. Adrienne Morea, for example, translated America's fascination with leather furnishings into Paradigm pulls in black leather, black crocodile leather and cocoa brown washable suede with polished chrome and brushed nickel accents.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Accessories, September 28th, 2017. Grapefruit knife. OK, this is the height of decadence. But in this two-ended knife, the parallel blades on one end allow me to slice on both sides of the membrane at once. Then the other end, which is serrated, deftly cuts around the outside edge of the grapefruit. (Don't reverse the process, though, because it's not as effective.) When the Texas ruby reds come in, I'm a happy slurper.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Accessories, November 27th, 2017. "I like the whimsical pulls used as a detail, put here and there to personalize the kitchen. They say, 'I like grapes' or 'I love antique cars,' and they'll always have a place," says Morea. "That kind of whimsy works really well at a second home or a vacation home. I have one client in Florida, for example, who used 125 hardware pieces in one beach house kitchen, all starfish, and it looked great. Pulls shaped like twigs and leaves work in a mountain retreat kitchen." In an ordinary kitchen, pulls in fun shapes and colors strike a nice note when used sparingly. "For a personal touch I might use a few on a wine drawer or the doors of a wet bar, or maybe one or two on overhead cabinets that aren't real close to the main cabinets."
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Accessories, September 28th, 2017. For staples such as flour and sugar, matching canisters are a great way to bring a bit of style to your space. If you have a pantry, you can use the same type of canisters or jars in there, too.
Francoise Joi Kitchen Accessories, September 28th, 2017. In a kitchen with simple style and a mostly white color palette, a splash of pattern can add personality. "Help frame a beautiful view with a valance mounted above the window. This ikat-patterned fabric, Bansuri in Slate, has a rich neutral that adds interest to the solid white cabinets," says the manufacturer.
Cherise Lefevre Kitchen Accessories, November 27th, 2017. If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don’t want anything heavy or opaque, consider using a fabric with a loose weave, such as linen, for example. Here, designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
