So what’s new in grills? Japanese Kamado-style smoker grills like the Big Green Egg and the Primo Grill have soared in popularity. This ceramic charcoal barbecue and smoker can reach extremely high temperatures (past 700 degrees) to quickly fire a Neapolitan pizza, but allow total control — maintaining accuracy within a few degrees. They can cook a hotdog in four minutes or smoke a brisket low and slow overnight.
Like we’ve seen with ranges, gas grills are becoming bigger, more powerful and more feature-heavy (i.e. built-in rotisseries, side burners, sear burners and sleek stainless steel styling).
Warners’ Stellian will have discounts on all grills, plus free assembly and delivery on grills priced $499 and up. Better yet, buy a grill $599 and get 3 certificates for free products from No Name Premium Meats & Seafood.
WHEN: Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. & Sunday, May 19 from noon to 4 p.m.
The Appliance Stimulus is back, at Warners’ Stellian through Sunday, March 3
Warners’ Stellian re-created the government’s Cash for Clunkers-style appliance rebate program that was so popular, it crashed the state’s website a few years ago. Not everyone got to take advantage of the limited rebates, and customer requests for similar savings was huge.
Plus, many needed new dryers, microwaves and ranges, which were excluded from the government’s program. Our event has become wildly popular, so we’ve made it an annual mainstay and continue to make it bigger each year.
Participating brands we are advertising: Bosch, Electrolux, Samsung, Frigidaire, Whirlpool, Maytag, KitchenAid, GE, LG, Bertazzoni, Liebherr, Capital, ULine, Asko, Speed Queen, Panasonic, Dyson, Blomberg and more.
Beyond the Stimulus rebate savings, there will be deep discounts on all categories of appliances. A few examples:
Frigidaire front load laundry pair for only $899 (regularly $1399)
KitchenAid stainless steel dishwasher for just $599 (regularly price of $999.99)
Save $1000 on a 4-piece stainless steel kitchen package (fridge, range, dishwasher, microwave) from GE Profile, now just $4249
Aggressive discounts on kitchen packages hope to encourage consumers to replace their existing refrigerators, ranges, microwaves and dishwashers all at once. For example, shoppers can get $1000 savings on a GE Profile stainless steel kitchen package, making it just $4249.
As always, local delivery (including free-standing appliance installation) and appliance recycling are free on orders $499 and above.
WHEN: Now through Sunday, March 3. Customers can reserve their rebate online

What is it with us Midwesterners and our deal-bragging? You know: upon receiving a compliment we gloat about the gasp-worthy low price we got it for, unsolicited. Perhaps it’s because we fancy ourselves pro deal hunters.
But our Extreme Warehouse Sale this Saturday and Sunday is no Macy’s clearance rack. I’m talkin’ big-ticket items at huge discounts: you need to prepare a bit. The savings are so hot, all sales are final.
Luckily for you, I’ve compiled the secrets of the pros — tips that will prepare any appliance rookie for the big league.
Before the sale
Measure your space
Don’t learn the hard way: there is no “standard” in appliance sizes. Use a measuring tape on the available space — not the existing appliance — and write down dimensions to bring to the sale.
Also, measure the width of the doorways and staircases the appliance will need to travel through.
Know your fuel type
You’ll need to know whether you have a gas or electric hookup when buying a dryer, a range or a cooktop.
Consider your hinges
For example, some refrigerators on sale will be left hinge only. Wouldn’t it be terrible to find a great deal on a fridge only to get it home and not be able to open it? Also know what side you want the hinges on a front-load washer and any type of dryer, in case there’s an option.
Do some research
We’ll have more than 2,000 appliances available at the start of the sale, so have something in mind to avoid frustration. The best tip? Know what you like and don’t like about your existing model. Check out our Web site for more ideas on what features are important to you.
The day of the sale
Bring a hauling vehicle Usually, we offer free delivery on purchases $499 and above, but this sale is anything but usual. Our warehouse is full of products, so we encourage customers to take their purchases with them the day of the sale. We’ll help you load it up and everything.
If you do choose to have it delivered, it’s $75 and you must take delivery within 14 days.
Know your schedule
We’ll arrange for delivery and any installation for built-in appliances (available for additional charges) at the time of sale. We’ll call you the day before the delivery with an AM/PM estimate and our crew can call you before they arrive if you need to meet them at your house.
Pack a stroller
Our warehouse is a warehouse. It’s clean and safe, but it’s also big and crowded and without a play area. Strollers work well to keep small children nearby when you’re shopping the selection.
After the sale
Receive delivery/install time estimate
You’ll receive a call with an AM/PM estimate the day before your scheduled delivery and/or install.
Apply for rebates
You could qualify for even more savings by rebate. Once you receive your product, you can fill in the serial number (the delivery crew can help you locate this) on your rebate forms and submit them promptly, as they expire.
Read your manual
Knowing your new product can help you save time and improve the quality of your cooking and cleaning. Stow it somewhere memorable to refer to for troubleshooting and general operation questions.
Don’t ignore accessories
If you get a dishwasher, buy rinse aid to help dry your dishes. If you buy a smooth-top electric range, you’ll want cooktop cleaner to keep it looking new. The water filter in your fridge will need to be replaced every six to 12 months. And please, for the sake of your breathing, don’t overstuff your vacuum bags!
You’ll find floor models, discontinued models, scratch and dent appliances — you name it. But, all items come with full factory warranty. Usually we deliver for free with purchases $499 and up, but this isn’t your usual appliance purchase. So, delivery is $75 to the metro area (outside areas are additional). Take your purchase with you for maximum savings. Professional installation is available for built-in items.
2. This weekend…only! No pre-shopping nor post-shopping. We open the doors this Saturday, Oct. 27 at 7 a.m. and keep chugging till 5:30 p.m. taking a quick break to prepare for our Sunday sale on Oct. 28 from 11 to 5.
3. It’s called a warehouse sale for a reason We hold it in our warehouse — which is actually quite roomy and clean — because none of our other stores could accommodate the volume we do this weekend. So don’t expect to find the sale at our stores. Instead, navigate to Warners’ Stellian’s St. Paul Warehouse, approximately 1 mile north of 94 off Dale Street
4. You’re in good company Each Extreme Warehouse Sale, we get thousands of people through our doors. Approximate 3,500 “groups” (we don’t count people individually because people usually make purchases as a family/couple) receive assistance from our 120 or so staff on hand to select the right product, check out, load your purchases into cars, etc.
5. No other sale like it
We prepare half the year for this sale, and it’s been so successful that manufacturers have gotten behind it and helped us offer deals worth getting excited about. The offers are hot because we not only offer closeout appliances, floor models, scratch and dent items and discontinued models, we now make special buys specifically for the sale — some even new, in-the-box. This year, we’re offering our largest-ever selection of professional cooking and refrigeration appliances, too!
Want to see what some of those special buys are? We offer no sneak peaks of the warehouse — no exceptions — but we always share a few featured items we’ve bought special for this year’s sale.
We moved it up to the last weekend of October, which is this Saturday and Sunday.
When and where is it?
Saturday, Oct. 27 from 7-5:30
Sunday, Oct. 28 from 11-5
Warner Stellian’s St. Paul Warehouse
550 Atwater Circle
1 mile north of I-94 and Dale at Topping Street
What’s on sale?
Well, we can’t tell you that — it would ruin the surprise for everyone. BUT we will share a selection of featured products that will be on hand, while supplies last, via email on Wednesday.
Join our email list and you’ll get to check out these special purchases we’ve made for the sale.
Do NOT call trying to find out specific models and prices of what’s in the warehouse. Most of us don’t know. Those who do won’t tell you. It’s only fair to all our shoppers.
Like we do every year, we’ll have hundreds of deeply discounted appliances in every category and major brand. Plus, all the specialty items such as high-quality vacuums, wine and beverage refrigeration and grills.
But this year, the rumor is we’ll have our largest-ever selection of professional cooking appliances and built-in refrigeration. So, here’s your chance to step up to that high-end range you always dreamed of and still be able to afford the food you want to cook on it.
But he’s still absolutely available. So cards it is.
His likely adept skills at solitaire won’t necessarily translate to Go Fish. So come try your hand and give him some company.
If cards aren’t your thing, we’ll take your picture and get you an autograph.
Thursday, We’ll be at our Edina appliance store, 3533 W. 70th St. (across from the Galleria) from 9-10 a.m.
Then we’ll hop over to our Falcon Heights/Roseville/St. Paul appliance store (so amazing it has three names around here), 1711 N. Snelling St. (two blocks north of the State Fairgrounds), from 11-noon.
