It should always be National Grilled Cheese Month

We are not really sure who decides this, but April is National Grilled Cheese Month…we feel the only honorable thing to do is celebrate and embrace it.

In our showroom, our favorite way to make a grilled cheese sandwich is in the GE Monogram Advantium Oven.  We have a live unit in our Monogram kitchen and while this oven has many features and capabilities, you just can’t beat the way this oven makes an awesome grilled cheese.

Before we get to the food pictures, the Advantium Oven is in a class by itself…a brief description of its attributes are as follows:
–  Advantium technology harnesses the power of light.  The outside of the food is cooked like a conventional oven, with radiant heat produced by halogen bulbs above and below the food.  This halogen-produced heat receives a boost of microwave energy.
–  Foods brown and cook evenly and fast, while retaining their natural moisture.
–  Advantium offers 4 ovens in 1…..Speedcook, True European Convection, Sensor Microwave, and Warming/Proofing ovens…..and comes in several different configurations to fit any kitchen design.
–  Delivers oven-quality results 2 – 8 times faster that a conventional oven….no preheating required.

The Advantium Oven is offered across the GE lines of Monogram, Profile and Café…the differences have to do with whether the oven is installed as an over-the-range classification, built-in, or based on specifications regarding which voltage is required.  Here is a link to more info and specs on the GE Advantium Oven.

Now back to making an amazing grilled cheese sandwich…after all, there is a month dedicated to its awesomeness.

The Advantium gives you foolproof digital options to scroll through and find just the right selection to make your sandwich……

Cater to Me

MikeCaterMike, one of our sales team members, had a call come in from a client the other day who also happens to be a chef. As he was accustomed to using full sheet catering pans in his restaurant, he was interested in a range that would accept full sheet pans to accommodate his creations at home. Wanting to confirm which models would work, we started going from product to product putting each to the test. We carry all of the leading brands and display them on our floor. That made it very easy to find out.

DCSrange

So what did we find out?

BlueStarRange

We found that DCS, Dacor, Thermador Pro Grand, MONOGRAM, and BlueStar in 36″ and 48″ ranges are all able to accommodate a full sheet catering pan.

Dacor

It should be noted that not all clients need that feature in their range. I know personally I have gone my whole life and have not needed to use a full sheet catering pan. I’ve even been known to cook up a storm in a 20″ range that I dubbed my “Easy Bake Oven”. However, if you do have the need, it is great to know there are plenty of fantastic options (that we carry and you can test) right here to choose from in our showroom without having to own or visit a restaurant with a commercial range! See you soon!
