Fun in the Kitchen

Today’s subject: Fun in the kitchen. Men, get your minds out of the gutter and think appliances, specifically dishwashers. A man shared with me that he and his wife don’t own a dishwasher and actually visit while they do the dishes (by hand). No, his name wasn’t John Boy Walton, but for the rest of us it’s more likely a struggle between wanting to cook a healthy meal at home, and really hating to make a mountain of dirty dishes and utensils. If this is your struggle then your solution is simple- obtain a good dishwasher. Oh yeah, and while your new machine is quietly doing the cleaning you should ask your spouse how their day was.

Here’s a few of my dishwasher recommendations to meet a variety of budgets:

Miele (see video) Models ranging from $899-$2,299

General Electric GDT720 (see video) (with bottle wash jets, also great for cleaning smoothie glasses) starting at $899

Bosch SHX7PT55UC $1299 (see it here)

KitchenAid models starting at $699 (built like tanks!)

Whirlpool WDF520PADM starting at $399 (see it here)

 

French, Love, and Wall Ovens

“Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.” ~ Julia Child

When cuisine, culinary delights, and delicacies enter our minds we may tend to think of Paris. The French have inspired many things, kisses, cooking, art, fashion, design, scents, Julia Child, and doors. “Doors?” you ask? Yes. Doors. Schfancy doors that meet together, open together, and invite us in to all sorts of delights. French doors are slowly easing their way into our kitchens. They first began showing up years ago on refrigeration and have now sashayed their way into the realm of built-in cooking.

GE FD WO 5GE’s Monogram line debuted their first French door wall oven this year. It may have you saying “Ooh La La! C’est magnifique!” and here’s why. For a 30” single French door wall oven it boasts a spacious 5 cubic foot oven capacity. It offers true European convection using the rear convection fan and vertical vented slots to uniformly circulate the oven heat. Every cookie will be perfect and roasts will arrive to the table quicker, tender, and juicy. GE FD WO 4There are two glide-out, full extension racks, as well as one traditional rack. A rarity for self clean, all three racks can be left in the oven during the self clean cycle. This oven also offers a steam clean option. Features like LED theatre lighting and Wi-Fi capabilities are standard. The Wi-Fi feature allows you operate your oven from a smart phone or web-enabled device. (That is so cool!) It doesn’t stop there. With a 10 pass dual broil and a 10 pass hidden bake element, there is no doubt of how even and precise your results will be upon completion of your creations.GE FD WO 2 It is ADA compliant and also has easy open handles allowing you to pull open both doors by pulling either the right or left handle.

Monogram isn’t the only manufacturer that is offering a French door wall oven.  Viking, American Range, and Blue Star offer French door models if your inspiration is leaning more towards a color, gas, or double wall oven option.
