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.

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!

As if we didn’t love him enough already..our dear DCS by Fisher & Paykel rep, Dan Trbovich, came by this last Tuesday to grill up lunch on a DCS grill for our ENTIRE staff. Our own Doug White was on hand helping because, well, he rocks! (cue air guitar). Together they grilled up delicious steaks, chicken, portobello mushrooms, onions, and pineapple. We baked up potatoes inside, while Mike Davidson shared his decadent smoked fish spread.

The steaks were outrageous!!!! The onions were so sweet!!! The grilled pineapple? Succulent candy!! I thoroughly encourage any one of you to sink your teeth into the features that are offered by a DCS outdoor grill that result in such deliciousness pictured here.

With their full surface super searing grill, grease management system, smoker box, infrared rotisserie, along with grilling and griddle accessory options, it’s no shock we all enjoyed some seriously soul satisfying food!!! This is one hot grill!! While our menu had hearty meats, veggies, and fruit, DCS grills can delicately handle fish as well. Yes! Yes! We have DCS grills here for you to see!!! Some of our staff own DCS grills and can first hand tell you how they use and love them. I’ve cooked on one myself. After the belly stuffing meal we enjoyed I can assure you this isn’t the first time I’ve had a fantastic feast on a DCS grill and it definitely won’t be the last!

DCS, ATK, Oh my!

DCS by Fisher & Paykel has a quiet history since they don’t spend a ton of money on marketing; however, other well known names have used DCS in their lineups.  They began in 1988 in California when a commercial range was custom built for use in a residential application. Realizing they had a great product to offer to the masses they started selling their recipe for quality and function to companies such as Viking, Thermador, GE Monogram, and JennAir. Yup. You read that right. You didn’t even know you knew DCS, did you?DCSATK

Last week I was whisked away to Boston, along with a crew of 9 equally appliance enthused (I’m not being sarcastic here, we love appliances that much!) sales reps from all over the USA, to take a few succulent bites into the world of DCS by Fisher & Paykel. To mix it up, we weren’t trained in a DCS facility, but in America’s Test Kitchen. ATK’s founder, Chris Kimball, has DCS in his personal kitchens, which prompted his natural choice of DCS appliances in ATK’s kitchens.

ATK’s home is tucked away in an old building in Boston complete with a maze of quirky turns, steps, food, and dining tables with a backdrop of old school, historic charm. We were graciously welcomed by ATK to cook, learn, laugh, and eat within their bustling cooking, testing, and tasting world. In this cozy setting we learned DCS is truly a powerhouse of quality, function, and is user friendly whether you’re a master chef, a weekend cooking warrior, or a 30 minute weeknight meal maker. Using ATK recipes, mouth watering, waist growing meals were created by us all while learning hands on just how fun and easy DCS is to use.

DCS1There’s something really remarkable about bonding over quality appliances and cooking with people that have an equivalent passion for appliances. DCS and ATK really set the table for a gracious, welcoming learning experience.

If you’re looking for meaty, commercial quality appliances without too many bells and whistles, DCS is the way to go. The DCS customer wants a tried and true, quality appliance with a minimal learning curve to get great results focused on highlighting the finished culinary masterpiece.

With professional ranges, commercial quality wall-ovens, precision cooktops, versatile dish drawers, searing outdoor grills, and a built-in line of refrigeration due out any minute, this is a line to consider if you want hard-working, solid appliances without a super premium price tag. We have their line on display, so please stop in. We’d love to get you fired up over them!
