We've all become accustomed to the conveniences our home appliances provide to free up our time from doing tedious chores around the house. Since the invention and now common use of the automatic dishwasher, dishpan hands are a thing of the past.
What did we ever do before the dishwasher? Dinner is much less daunting with the knowledge that you won’t have to stand over the sink hand scrubbing dishes for an hour after you’re done eating (only to then dry them and then have to put them away).
Imagine this scenario - you’re busy prepping ingredients for dinner, and to get that water boiling you reach to turn on your stovetop or cooktop, only to discover that it won’t turn on or ignite. As frustrating as this situation can be, it unfortunately happens all too often.
We’ll just come right out and say it - your washer or dryer has seen better days. While we’re firm believers in the right to repair, if your precious appliance is pushing 20 years or more, there’s really no way around it: you need a new washer or dryer installed, and you need it now.
Today's kitchens aren't complete without the latest high-tech smart appliances. Our new machines make chores easier through intuitive features like alerting you when you're getting low on milk, when it's time to change the filter, or even summoning a repair service for you.
Summer’s coming, and with that balmy weather, our refrigerator water dispenser sees more action than ever as we make sure to stay hydrated. Sure, it might not be our refrigerator’s primary function, but we love having cool, filtered water on demand – drinking tepid tap water or running to refill a Brita every few minutes just isn’t our jam.
Appliance difficulties can happen to anyone, often when you least expect it. Whether you find yourself faced with an appliance that’s aging, one that suddenly won’t turn on, or you’re unsure of how to find and schedule a repair service, there’s never a good time to deal with these inconveniences, yet they continuously happen, every day.
Thinking about going green at home? There’s no time like the present to get started.
Your oven is a big part of your kitchen appliance collection. While a quick reheat in the microwave or toaster oven might be good enough for the kids' after-school or your late-night snack, but for family meal preparation, your oven is the "appliance of choice."
There’s a reason why the kitchen is the heart of the home—because it’s where all of the delicious food is made. Whether you consider yourself quite the chef or you can barely heat up a pizza in the oven, you rely on your oven and stove to heat things up safely and properly so that you can put food on the table for you and your family.
Frankly, we don’t have a clue as to how we ever managed to survive our younger years on ramen noodles alone – do those things even have any nutritional value to speak of?
Unlike your other home appliances, when you encounter a problem with your refrigerator, it really isn’t something that can wait. After all, a broken fridge can easily result in spoiled food and hundreds of dollars out the window.
Over the years, there's been a lot of debate about just how much water a person should drink daily to maintain optimum health. And while you may dispute that there's a magic number of glasses you need to consume each day, you probably agree that a tall glass of ice cold water can be very refreshing and tastes great.
Picture this: you’ve got all the ingredients prepared to make your family a delicious dinner, then, you suddenly find that your oven range isn’t working. Try as you might, you just can’t seem to get your stove burner to light or you still can't figure out why your oven isn't heating properly.
If you’re like most people, by the time you figure out that your dishwasher won’t start, you’ve already loaded it up with tons of dirty dishes and are about to move on to your next task – whether that’s sweeping the floor or settling back on the couch to unwind with some Netflix.
