7 most popular appliance blog posts of 2011

December 28, 2011

A post on cleaning the dishwasher was a top dog.

Though not the most-read posts of all time on the Warners’ Stellian Appliance blog, these next 7 posts garnered the most views of those written this year.

7. HOW TO: clean a dishwasher

With more states banning phosphates in dishwashers without consumers possibly noticing, dishwashers got white film.

But a regular maintenance cleaning is always a good idea.

6. HOW TO: clean cast iron grates

If you’re lucky enough to have cast iron grates, you’re unlucky enough to handle cleaning them. The experts at Wolf Range weighed in.

5. DIY Network ‘Rehab Addict’ Nicole Curtis talks appliances

Old house lover/rehabber Nicole Curtis invited us into her “Minnehaha House” in Minneapolis for tips on fixing up kitchens and buying the right appliances.

4. Stove drip pans cleaning tips

Is there anything worse than the grime that builds up on the burner pans on your stove top? Not only do I include a deep-cleaning method, but I offer up the secret ingredient to easily keeping those drip pans shiny on a weekly basis.

3. How long does a dishwasher last?

2. How long does a refrigerator last?

1. How long does a washer last?

No, you’re right; they don’t make ‘em like they used to. (But believe me, that’s not all bad!) Unfortunately, gone are the days when you could expect your appliances to last a decade and a half. Find the new lifespans in each post above.

Meet DIY Network’s ‘Rehab Addict’ this Wednesday

February 21, 2011

Nicole Curtis works on the Lyndale House during this season of DIY Network's "Rehab Addict."

Don’t be fooled by her frame.

She might be petite, but star of DIY Network’s “Rehab Addict” Nicole Curtis shows old homes who’s boss.

Read more about the local Realtor, investor and single mom in this Sunday’s Star Tribune article ‘A Jill of all trades.

This season, Nicole Curtis takes a 1916 Arts and Crafts-style home in the Tangletown neighborhood of Minneapolis from unlivable to unbelievable (trust me, I’ve walked through it).

And this Wednesday, Feb. 23 at Warners’ Stellian Edina (across from the Galleria), she’ll use her experience fixing and selling home to teach you the best ways you can improve the resale value of your own home. The event begins at 5:30 p.m.

After her presentation, you can meet Nicole and ask your own questions. We’ll also see scenes from the next week’s episode, which features Nicole appliance shopping at Warners’ Stellian.

Plus, eat well with Hors d’Ĺ“uvres from D’Amico & Sons and of course, drinks too.

We’re so excited, and it’s free, so we hope you can join us!

I got to tag along yesterday as “Twin Cities Live” toured the lastest renovation project (watch the video) of Nicole Curtis, star of DIY Network’s “Rehab Addict” (watch new episodes Thursday at 9 p.m. CST).

(Also, you can meet Nicole and hear her “5 Ways to Increase the Resale Value of your Home” at our Edina store Wednesday, Feb. 23. )

Nicole Curtis, left, poses in her beautifully remodeled kitchen with Twin Cities Live reporter Emily Engberg.

I couldn’t stop gushing over the way the house now looked, having toured it (kind of) almost two months ago for the appliance delivery.

Gorgeous, huh? The so-called kitchen episode of “Rehab Addict” airs March 3, but we’ll be premiering it with Nicole at our upcoming, in-store event.

A chance to star on DIY Network

December 9, 2010

OK, so maybe we didn’t exactly star, but the past two mornings, Warners’ Stellian has been working with crews shooting footage that will air in two episodes of DIY Network’s “Rehab Addict,” which airs Thursday nights at 9 with new episodes beginning Jan. 20. (See our photos on Facebook.)

Joe Warner and Nicole discuss steam laundry. It's a big deal.

The rehab addict herself, Nicole Curtis, is fixing up a big old house in the Tangletown neighborhood of Minneapolis, for which she came and picked out some appliances at Warners’ Stellian-Edina on Tuesday.

Nicole selected all Frigidaire appliances:

The production crew films Dave and Brian placing the Frigidaire 36" gas range in the kitchen.

Our crews delivered her selections Wednesday to a beautiful custom kitchen of white, solid-wood cabinetry, marble countertops, an apron front sink (etc., etc., etc.).

Our delivery guys Dave and Brian truly enjoyed being in front of the cameras and shared some laughs with the production crew, as well.

Nicole will be holding an educational-type event at a Warners’ Stellian showroom in the next couple months, so stand by!
