Everything AND the Kitchen Sink

AlfrescoAlfresco rolled in to give us an update on all their outdoor cooking and accessory line. While you should definitely come in to get the full story on their product line (grills, pizza oven, 28″ beverage center that can hold a full keg, to name a few) two of their add-ons really made an impression on me. A built-in grill does not make for a full outdoor kitchen experience….but with these sweet add-ons you’ll have no problem fulfilling every one of your outdoor entertaining needs.

Their 30″ Versa sink MSRP $1197 has plenty to offer. You can fill the sink with ice (and beer!), use it as a prep sink, use other accessories to create your own unique prep space, or rearrange all the parts to suit that day’s needs or wants. With a full size kitchen sink drain, it’s easy to clear it out, too. Everything you see below is included in the full beverage package…..check out the shelf for the BLENDER. I LOVE that! Pictured here is the bar package MSRP $806, the serving shelf MSRP $572, and the middle shelf MSRP $105.

Or this…with the sink add on package MSRP $549, and high self with a pot rack MSRP $572, and middle shelf MSRP $105.AlfrescoPrepCenterHighShelf

There are accessory packages you can purchase to either do it up beverage style or make it a prep center. This sink is offered in widths of 14″ MSRP $1003 and 24″ MSRP $1405.

Their dry pantry caught my eye, too. The dry pantry takes outdoor storage to a whole new level. We have a LOT of bugs in Florida. These cabinets seal well, channel rain down the specially designed gaskets, and keep out creepy, crawly, bugs.

They also seal out humidity, so if you wanted to keep towels, or supplies out there for easy access, you won’t have to keep filling it every time you’re outside. They come in heights of 21″ and 33″ depending on whether you want it under your grill, or right beneath your counter. They offer a 30″ and 42″ width. MSRP is $1749-$2399, depending on the size. With pull out drawers and shelves, you have the option of where and how you want things to grab things.Alfresco30-Inch-Sealed-Dry-Storage-Pantry-Open

Stop in and see what other ways you can take your indoor fun…..outside.

Finding the Right One

Baking iStock_000063681259_SmallThere are so many brands in the appliance industry. Each one carries it’s own set of bells and whistles, or not. When renovating, rebuilding, or just replacing one major appliance in your home, it is really important to be able to see what’s out there and get a true feel for what you want in the heart of your home.

Some brands offer lots of innovation, scroll screens, options, and have easy to navigate options. Some are more manually driven and the temperatures, settings, and oven modes are right up front. Are you looking for sleek and modern? Or do you lean more towards a control board that is reminiscent of gauges on a plane?

Are you feeling stainless or is color more your speed? Maybe a simple coil range fits the bill with its minimal features because simplicity is the goal.

The beauty of our showroom is the ability to walk around and really see the possibilities. We have so many appliances that are live and in use. We cook with them, clean with them, keep food fresh with them, and enjoy them! Our reps have first hand use and knowledge to share and can guide you through your selection based on your wants and needs. This is invaluable during the selection process. I have been here when clients have brought in their own chicken breasts to test several ovens with the goal of finding the right one. Some have found that their original plan for one brand lead them a different way once they saw all that was available in brands they hadn’t seen before.

With an appliance playground right in your backyard, stop in and see us! Orlando is full of theme parks, be sure to stop in and visit ours!

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!
