Interview with a Dishwasher

Asko LogoAsko Logan 3What happens when you interview a fellow co-worker about their new Asko dishwasher? You get a lot of answers and some silly photo ops…..I put my glasses on for this one to get my “reporter” groove on…Asko Logan 5

Logan used to resort to a base model “other” brand that was noisy (you could hear the *squish*squish* of the water) and didn’t clean her dishes. It was bad, so bad that Quinn (pictured below in all his furry cuteness), her fur baby, helped out with the dishes. Asko Logan QuinnFast forward to about 6 months ago when Logan was the proud purchaser of a top-of-the-line Asko dishwasher and here is what she has to say from first hand experience…

Logan’s words:

“I put REALLY dirty dishes in there. I even put a casserole dish caked on with a dark berry cobbler and it came out CLEAN!!”

“My wine glasses come out streak free. I usually let them sit for a few days because I don’t have a full load right away.”

“I LOVE the silverware tray. I never use the silverware basket.”

“I don’t hear it. The little display window shows the time left. I also like that the design is simple, doesn’t have a name on the front, and doesn’t compete with other design elements in my kitchen.”

“Quinn likes to sit on the door when the dishwasher is open and sometimes ‘pre-wash’ the dishes. He is 10 lbs.” (It’s a good thing this dishwasher sanitizes the dishes!!!!!)

The top of the line, D5656XXLHS model with a tubular handle has a MSRP of $2155, with the pro handle MSRP at $2210. Their base model starts at $979!!! Inside this stainless steel interior dishwasher sits a fully removal third utensil rack positioned in the center of the dishwasher. The WideClean zones offer more powerful wash action on pots, pans, and cobbler crusted Fiestaware. This model also has an interior light. And since Asko is the dishwasher line for the Subzero and Wolf family, you get a 2 year warranty AND amazing customer service. They also offer a 3 year warranty if it’s purchased and installed by us included as part of a full Subzero-Wolf package. Of course, we have this model and other Askos on the floor. We’d be happy to show them to you!Asko Logan 1

Something to Talk About

TLK_4C_SM

FOOD_CROISSANT_COFFEE_TRG_72815Pull up a chair and grab a fresh baked croissant with your coffee. The time has come again to seriously consider a Subzero-Wolf-Asko package. As of July 1st through March 31, 2017, they are running a promotion that can include $1000 back and/or Wolf Gourmet product options.

Many consumers wonder if the cost of a premium appliance package is worth it. They also wonder if they can afford such luxuries. I’m here to tell you it’s possible and worth it. Investing extra money now will give you a fabulous chef’s kitchen that will last you for many years.

Refrigeration that lasts, cooking products that stand up to the toughest and gentlest recipes, cleaning products that take on anything you can whip up on their fine products, this is what you can have with a Subzero-Wolf-Asko kitchen. But they don’t stop there….how about a coffee system and microwave options (built-in, drop down doors, micro-drawers). Under-counter refrigeration and freezers offer you drawer options or door options. Wine storage in beautiful columns, or placed under your counter. Ice machines and outdoor products, the list goes on and on. You like modern and sleek? Professional and robust? Hidden behind decadent cabinetry? If you can dream it, the Subzero-Wolf-Asko line can bring it to life. This is a manufacturer that doesn’t quit and neither do their products.

One of their best kept secrets is how they treat their customers. You are premium. You are cared for. Their customer service is top notch and, to us, one of the best in the industry. They invest in you as you have invested in their products.

This is not a product line can be summed up in a small blog. A tour through our expanded Living Kitchen and details in person about their promotion are very much worth a trip to our showroom. Finish your coffee and croissant, and stop in. It’s time to wake up and realize this kitchen dream is within reach. We will show you how…

Investing in Camouflage

AA-Camo

I tried to buy an integrated refrigerator…but I couldn’t find one. (My appliance version of the joke “I tried to buy a camouflage shirt but couldn’t find one”). Exactly what DO refrigeration and camouflage have in common? A whole lot! Kitchens today are disappearing into cabinetry to create seamless, integrated looks. When opening any kitchen cabinetry door or drawer don’t be surprised if you find perfect produce, creamy milk, or fine wines. How can you make a great investment in your home with the appliance industry’s version of camouflage?

Most products we buy (think cars and boats) begin to depreciate drastically the moment they’re put into service. There are however a few products that not only hold their value, but in fact enhance the overall value of a home. Integrated refrigeration is one such product. Integrated refrigeration is virtually indistinguishable from your custom cabinetry. These products can be designed into your kitchen with incredible location flexibility. Here are pictures of several units as captured on an iPhone 6. Pricing is MSRP* (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price).

In Living Color

TLK_4C_SMAn old show jingle used to play “Do what you want to do – in living color”. Do you remember it? Before your time? It came to mind to me today because if you know Aggressive, you know we do what we want to do and that usually means changing…..all the time.

LK1

Our latest change is in our Subzero-Wolf section aka “The Living Kitchen” and it is very close to completion. We have a few finishing touches along with a few holes to fill in….but this area of our showroom is fast becoming my favorite spot to wander through. It really showcases the beauty of Subzero, Wolf, and Asko lines.

I really love the way the Subzero wine storage column looks in its new home! The design elements selected really make the Wolf Pro 48″ range “pop” while the Asko dishwasher is set in a beautiful, cozy cove. The three brands come together with vivid textures and metallic finishes to truly showcase the beauty and quality of the appliances.

Our showroom always has surprises springing up. We’d love for you to stop by so you can touch, feel, and look at “The Living Kitchen” in living color….TileCropCV

Don’t play with your food!!!

It’s 6pm. You’re just getting home from a long day. Your kids, spouse, significant other, your pet, (insert other hungry mouth here), or just YOU are starving. Who has time to cook a healthy meal that will be tasty and quick? Apparently we do. It might even mean that everyone puts their smart phones down and *GASP* talk to each other over a meal. Imagine?!? That’s just what Subzero-Wolf is suggesting AND they say we can do it easily with just a little planning and foresight. Hmmmm, interesting…

We were told as children not to play with our food….and it seems to me this campaign is saying “Why not?!”

Subzero-Wolf, an elite line of cooking and refrigeration products, has nobly started their “Reclaim the Kitchen” campaign. Their concept is that we are spending more time buying meals outside of the home and not cooking for ourselves (true, true). Are we missing out on fun and nutrition when we pick fast food or take out? Who really likes that garbage anyway? I don’t see any hands up…roastedchickenwithnewpotatoesandasparagusSo what they are saying in a nutshell is taking a few extra minutes to go buy fresh, fun, colorful, healthy foods with (or without) company and head home to create a quick meal is actually doable? Yes! And…all the “chefs”, young, in-between, and old, may have the chance to talk, share, and create memories as well! Little ones, playing with food, filling their bodies and souls with a home cooked meal that they help create within reach. My reach. Yours. I’m not kidding. Teach them about nutrition and helpfulness while bonding over food? I’m definitely picking up what Subzero-Wolf is putting down. I can do this! I think you can, too!

And what about all you singles out there? Blast some music, break out the seasonings and get your creative side flowing. Cooking is an art and what better way to nourish your body and creative spirit than with a masterpiece you’ve whipped up either for yourself or for someone visiting?

As our lives get a little nuts we don’t have to sacrifice happy bellies OR play time with our food in the kitchen. Find your inner kid and get back to playing with your food.

Subzero-Wolf has happily cooked up a website here with easy, fast recipes and links that fit our fabulous lifestyles and insane schedules. And here’s the link of their press release on this awesome initiative in partnership with Chef Kathleen Flinn.

And by the way… if you click the “food on the table” pictures you’ll go right to their recipe link.
