Tour the beautiful homes of Summit Hill

I think a lot of us, especially those who grew up near St. Paul, went (or still go!) to “see the houses on Summit.” Just driving by these beautiful, storied mansions imparts such a feeling of awe and wonder (especially about what’s inside, right?).

Well, every two years, the Summit Hill Association offers you the chance to indulge your curiosities and — for one day — peek into the history of its popular neighborhood during the Summit Hill House Tour. This year’s tour is this Sunday, Sept. 9 from noon to 6 p.m.

Again this year, Warner Stellian is the proud presenting sponsor of the self-guided tour, which includes about 12 private home interiors. Residents of Summit Hill have been our loyal customers for years, and we’ve enjoyed outfitting their homes with the finest appliances as well.

We hope you can join us, either by buying a ticket and going on the tour or by signing up to volunteer (then your ticket is free and you get to come to the afterparty!).

The history of the tour, from its website:

Since it began in 1972, the Summit Hill House Tour has been a hit for Twin Cities’ folks and those far beyond the metro area. In fact, it is one of the most popular historic house tours in the nation. This biennial event (every even year) is the major fund-raiser for the Summit Hill Association (SHA) that supports every program or event sponsored by SHA. The programs and events include — communications (newsletter and website), promotion and recruitment of citizen volunteers, crime prevention block and building clubs organizing, neighborhood review of zoning applications, annual clean-up drives, park and Grand Avenue  “greening” beautification efforts, recycling, traffic calming and much more!

Bringing your family to work

Last week was this year’s national Take Your Child to Work Day. Or as my dad and I call it, “Thursday.”

Warner Stellian is not only a family-owned business, but we employ Warner fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, cousins, nieces and nephews…you name it! (In fact, we’re proud recipients of the 2012 St. Thomas University Entrepreneur Awards Family Business of the Year).

But we’re really proud of the fact that some of our longtime employees also bring their children and family members on to get jobs here.

You can see we truly value the importance of family, which is why we were so excited when our staff participate in Take Your Kids to Work Day.

Our five guests — Leeah, Jordan, Preston, Addy, and Jessica — toured our office and appliance warehouse, participated in a mock interview, visited our Woodbury appliance store, watched our Styrofoam compacter in action, learned how we design our advertisements and rode in a delivery truck and a forklift, which was the crowd favorite.

We look forward to having them every year and who knows? Maybe we’ll be working with them in the future.

Grill Expo this weekend: Learn from the BBQ experts

Our tastiest event of the year happens this weekend. Can you believe it’s already our 10th Annual Grill Expo?

This Saturday, April 14 and Sunday, April 15 at all Warners’ Stellian Appliance stores (except Minneapolis Outlet), you can see ­– and taste –­ the difference among the
latest models of quality gas, charcoal and smoker grills during grilling
demonstrations by experts on top brands, like Weber Grill, Holland Grill, Vermont Castings and DCS Outdoor.

Joe Warner talks grilling trends with Tim McNiff and Kim Insley of KARE11 Sunrise.

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 2 certificates for complimentary products from No Name Premium Meats & Seafood (Twin Cities locations only) or a $50 gift card to Ye Olde Butcher Shoppe in Rochester.

WHEN:  Saturday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. & Sunday, April 15 from
noon to 4 p.m.

Dishwasher tips and troubleshooting from Angela Warner on KARE 11

Do you really know how to use your dishwasher?

Earlier this month, in-house dishwasher whisperer Angela Warner visited the KARE 11 studios to share some dishwasher DOs & DON’Ts.

Like the picture shows, people often don’t use the right amount of soap. There’s also a trick with your faucet that I swear by.

Our Extreme gratitude

Thank you to the thousands of people who braved the beautiful weather to shop the Warners’ Stellian Appliance Extreme Warehouse Sale this past weekend.

Here’s the recap, in photos:

Hundreds of Minnesotans (and some out-of-staters) lined up for the doors to open to our warehouse sale March 12, 2012. Sure it was nice, but I've seen a similar size line in blizzard conditions. We're hardy here!
My dad, Jeff Warner - president of Warners' Stellian - wears the same ugly striped knit hat he's been wearing since before I was born while serving delicious Peace Coffee to the second half of our customer line before the warehouse sale started.
...And they're off! Our appliance warehouse sale doors opened at 7 a.m. on Saturday, March 10, 2012.
Me & dad mug for a post-coffee serving photo. But now that the sale had begun, we needed get inside to help!
A view from inside the Extreme Warehouse Sale March 2012 right after the doors opened.
Another view of the warehouse sale. It's so big, it's impossible to capture it in one frame.
Though we had well over one thousand customers, we moved quickly and kept the longest check-out wait to only 15 minutes.
Thank you to all of our customers and friends for making this our most successful sale to date. We truly couldn't do it without all of you, so we're EXTREMEly appreciative.
