Visit Frigidaire’s Facebook page (facebook.com/frigidaire) at 11 a.m. CST this Wendesday, Nov. 23 to watch live streaming of Celebrity Food Network Chefs Anne Burrell (Mario Batali’s crazy-haired sous chef on Iron Chef America) and Geoffrey Zakarian (of Chopped) compete in the Double or Nothing Holiday Challenge in Times Square.
People everywhere can watch and vote for their favorite Chef to be entered for a chance to win the new range. AND for every vote, Frigidaire is donating $1 to Save the Children.
Following the event, you can find recipes and videos on Facebook, so stayed tuned.
If you have stainless steel refrigerator like I do (and especially if you have kids), chances are, that refrigerator looks like this:
Cleaning stainless steel appliances is not like cleaning other surfaces, because it’s easy to leave behind streaks from the actual cleaning process itself.
We sell a really good cleaner for stainless steel appliances called Citrushine. I used to use it all the time when I worked at the stores (if you think your kitchen is bad, imagine how much our appliances get touched!).
But sometimes company is coming over — which is about the only time I’ll polish my stainless steel — and you don’t have time to run to the store.
Try baby oil. Apply with an old towel or rag in small doses so you don’t end up with a greasy refrigerator and wipe with the grain for the shiniest finish.
(At the risk of sounding pretentious) My beloved theory of chase and flight posits a privileged class of people whose behaviors and tastes subordinate others “chase,” thus motivating the former to run — fast.
What does this have to do with appliances? Think of commercial-grade appliances and then look at the stainless steel kitchen package we sell for $1499 (through Sept. 5!).
Same goes for energy efficiency.
ENERGY STAR was created by The Man in 1992 to encourage the purchase and manufacture of energy-efficient home products through a voluntary program labeling the most-efficient products.
It’s good news that products have become more energy efficient. But when many or most of the products in a category qualify for the Energy Star, it makes it harder, not easier, for consumers to identify the truly exceptional products.
The 2011 efficiency clique calls out the best in four categories, including clothes washers and refrigerators.
Here’s a sampling of the best washers and refrigerators:
Not only is it sexy, this LG washer kills allergens, can maintain cleaning performance without heating the water and has a 15-minute wash option for us procrastinators. And it’s also on sale through Labor Day.
This Frigidaire steam washer offers a little more capacity, NSF certified cleaning power and power saver cycle that apparently reduces energy use by 60%.
This Frigidaire washer is the big sister to the previous (more capacity) plus an allergen cycle.
This Electrolux steam washer also is NSF certified plus it fit the most clothes in one cycle and it has the fastest wash and dry time (if you have the dryer: 15 and 14 minutes, respectively).
And refrigerators: there were only two and there’s practically the same, save for depth. One will stick out from your cabinets, the other will sit back in line with them and set you back an additional $400.
