About

I (Julie Warner) blog for Warners’ Stellian Appliance Co. Inc., a Twin Cities local, independent appliance retailer owned by my extended family, the Warners. We have six stores in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area and we recently opened a store in Rochester, MN. We also ship nationally, so don’t rule us out!

My interests include appliances (duh), kitchen remodels, DIY projects, green living and design, gourmet(ish) cooking, innovative design and the local community (and of course the occasional beer). Please come and read, comment if you feel moved and subscribe to our RSS feed if you feel really moved.

Don’t hesitate to drop me a line at jawarner [at] warnersstellian [dot] com. E-mail makes me feel special, so I encourage you to send them.

You can also find me on Twitter (@WarnersStellian) and Facebook.

Thanks for stopping by!

    I have old Thermador appliances 20+ years old -(double oven and gas cooktop).
    Over the Xmas holiday the lower oven wouldn’t heat. 2 of the burners on the cooktop are not working Seems to me it’s time to replace rather than repair. That would also mean the dishwasher because I would want all stainless steel. I have a subzero that again is old but has had the compressors replaced. I know I can get stainless panels for the front. Does Warner Stellian come out and do a measure for a large purchase?
    Thanks Kim
    I am in Mendota Heights

      Hi Kim,

      Sorry I’m late getting back to you — and sorry about the demise of your oven and cooktop, though it does seem like you got the full life out of them.

      I would certainly replace at this point. I’m not a servicer by any means, but I’m guessing that 20-year-old parts — especially Thermador — would be tough to track down.

      We could send a crew to measure for about $75. E-mail me at jawarner@warnersstellian.com if you’re interested!

      Thanks for commenting,
      Julie

    Hi Julie,
    I found your site through Flickr where I noticed your photos of vintage Maytags, particularly wringer washers. I’m an author looking for photos to use in a video for my next book and I’d like to get your permission to use your photos. Please contact me.

    What does Stellian mean? And since your name is Warner, shouldn’t it be Warner’s Stellian for proper syntax?

    Hi Rob,

    Excellent question — and one we love to answer! Jim Warner began working for Stellian Appliance in 1954. The owners of Stellian, Steve & Lillian Farkas, combined their first names to title their business. Jim Warner bought the business in 1971 and added his family’s name to it. He specifically chose to include the plural possessive form of his surname, because it was a business that would be for his entire family, not just one Warner. Today, Jim’s nine children own the business and about 15 of his 37 grandchildren are already employed here full time (including myself).

    Thanks for your interest! Julie Warner
