The Best Electric Cooktop For Any Kitchen

The best electric cooktop for any kitchen

When it comes to filling a kitchen with appliances that will make a difference in the look, feel, and functionality of the space, you are going to need something to cook with. For one, it is an all-in-one range. For others, it is finding the best electric cooktop. And, yes – there are even those individuals that opt for both!

If you are making changes to your kitchen and are interested in the perks of adding an electric cooktop, then you are in the right place. Let’s talk about them.

What is a Cooktop?

Simply put, a cooktop is the cooking area of a range. It is the top area of burners – without the oven. This one-piece drops in the countertop and is connected to a heat source, whether electric, propane, or natural gas. They can be ceramic, glass, or stainless steel. In other words, there are so many variations and different cooktops to choose from. If you are new to the idea, there’s a lot to catch up on.

Cooktops have been around for a while. Sometimes they are found in homes where there is no range, but rather two separate units- a wall oven and a cooktop. In some kitchens, cooktops are used as a place to cook in addition to the range. For instance, many are found on the kitchen island.

Very generally speaking, the parts of a cooktop include a burner (the area that holds and heats the pots and pans), the control panel (the area where you set your temperature, timer, etc.), and the controls (the knobs you use to control each burner). Of course, there are a lot of internal parts that make these appliances work so efficiently.

Cooktops can range in size, so you can always find the right fit. Some smaller 30” cooktops are great additions to smaller kitchens, whereas a 48” cooktop may fit right in larger spaces.

What Makes a Good Cooktop?

There are so many different aspects that come together to make a good cooktop. But there are a few things that stand out above the others, including:

Size: This is great for those that cook a lot and is looking for additional burners. These individuals may be interested in larger cooktops. But the smaller options fit great inside small spaces.

Easy to Clean: Most often, cooktops are easy to clean. This is especially true for electric glass top cooktops. Simply wipe down spills.

Auto-Shutoff: We are easily sidetracked today, so having a cooktop that automatically shuts down for you when the cooking is done can be, quite literally, a life saver.

Energy-EfficiencyCooktops built with energy efficiency in mind are not only beneficial for the world around you but for your bank account, too.

What About Gas Cooktops?

THOR Kitchen has professional gas cooktops in both 30 inches and 36 inches. They are designed of stainless steel and offer many features that can benefit you as you cook. Because of their durable build, they can withstand high heat and heavy use without impacting their longevity.

The long-lasting prostyle appliance will look great no matter what design your kitchen is. That means if you decide to have a makeover a year from now, your cooktop will still fit in, still look beautiful, and still work perfectly.

Let’s take a look at a few of the features of these drop-in stainless steel gas cooktops.

High-Intensity Burners: With a mix of regular burners and two high-intensity 18,000 BTU power burners, you get intense heat – fast.

Professional Illuminated Knobs: When in use, the knobs illuminate in a bright modern blue. Not only does this look great, but it lets you know a burner is turned on, too.

Continuous Cast-Iron Grates: These grates are durable and easy to clean no matter how much you use your cooktop or how many foods spill or boil over.

Automatic Electric Ignition: Unlike an always-lit pilot light, this option uses less gas and reduces the need to light burners.

Liquid Propane Conversion Option: For those who prefer propane over natural gas.

Now, while gas may have its perks and have its own following, we are here to talk about electric cooktops. After all, there is just something about cooking amazing recipes with an electric cooktop that is just different from other options out there.

Electric Cooktops For the Win!

There are many people who have a preference for electric cooktops. And THOR Kitchen is offering two options – a 30-inch and a 36-inch glass cooktops that are durable, powerful, and high-performing, yet also very sleek in their design.

With the electric cooktop, you have precise heat that can slowly simmer or quickly boil whatever it is you are cooking. Plus, there are so many other features, too, such as:

Tri-Zone Lightning Boil Burner: This is a center burner in the middle that has three rings for you to control with the touch of a button. It can do everything from bill water to melt chocolate.

Sync Burner: Heat large pans, griddles, dutch ovens, and more when you have two burners that can heat food in sync. Essentially it gives you one long burner for even cooking.

Automatic Shutoff: For safety reasons, having an automatic shut-off is beneficial. This feature is designed to shut off as soon as it is done cooking.

Cooking Elements: Get rapid, reliable, consistent heat from all your burners every time.

Many Power Levels: You also get control over your power levels when cooking, from simmer to boil and everything in between.

Touch Glass Controls: With touch controls, you get more control over your cooktop.

Easy to Clean: Because of the glass cooktop, spills and grease can easily just be wiped away with ease.

Start the New Year with a Stainless Steel Appliance Package

Start the new year with a stainless steel appliance package

Are you happy with your kitchen? Does it bring you a sense of joy when you walk into the room? It should. This is your space. It should be designed in a way that brings you comfort at every turn. Of course, it should also be efficient, convenient, and easy to keep clean, too. A stainless steel appliance package in 2023 could be just the thing you need to transform your space into something that makes you feel good.

Give your kitchen a glowing, matching look that fits your style. So, why not kick off the new year right by investing in your kitchen?

The Value of Stainless Steel Appliances

Whether cooking, baking, socializing, helping the kids with homework, and so on – you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. You use this space to nourish your family and help them grow. And it is probably safe to say it is the place where a lot of memories have been made. It is no wonder why they call it the heart of the home.

As for look and feel, there are many different finishes found on kitchen appliances and when shopping for a stainless steel appliance package. The one that truly stands out time and time again is stainless steel. New appliances with this shiny, classy finish can make even the ugliest kitchens look stunning.

So, why the hype? Why does everyone seem to give so much attention to stainless steel?

Durability

Stainless steel will not rust or corrode. It is made of a durable material that lasts for years to come – without ever looking its age.

Easy to Clean

Stainless steel appliances can be easily cleaned so that they always shine and look beautiful in your kitchen. They don’t even need a cleaner – just mild soap and water.

Boosted Home Value

Yes, you read that right. Investing in stainless steel appliances for your kitchen – especially a matching set – can boost your home’s value.

Versatility

Unlike other types of appliance finishes, stainless steel is versatile. It doesn’t matter what your kitchen design style is, the appliances will fit perfectly. Farmhouse, modern, traditional, country, coastal, industrial, and more.

Free of Germs

Do you know why commercial kitchens are decked out in stainless steel? It isn’t because it is pretty (although it is). Stainless steel is non-porous. That means it doesn’t have holes or grooves or pores that can hold germs and bacteria. In other words, when you clean your surface, you are really cleaning the surface because there is nowhere else for anything to hide. Who wouldn’t want that in their kitchen, right?

Must-Have Stainless Steel Appliances

If you aren’t convinced by now that you need to invest in a stainless steel appliance package, then perhaps seeing the features you are missing will give you the push you need to take the leap.

Stainless Steel Kitchen Ranges

Kitchen ranges can be powered by natural gas, propane, electricity, or both. You have your choice based on cooking and baking preferences and the heat source delivery to your home.

It can also take care of the smell of your fish dinner so your house won’t smell fishy tomorrow.

8 Things You Need for the Modern Day Kitchen

8 things you need for the modern day kitchen

If you haven’t remodeled in quite some time, you are due for some upgrades. Though even if you have updated your kitchen recently, there are new things for the space that come out every single day. New ideas to make it more functional. New ideas to make it more inviting. New ideas to make it more organized. And more so, new ideas to transform it into a modern day kitchen.

The Necessities for the Modern Day Kitchen

We have sorted through all the new ideas to find those that can make the biggest impact in every way. Check out these eight things you need for the modern day kitchen you are trying to create.

1. Switch to Stainless Steel

Any time you think about a modern kitchen space, the mind’s eye is going to show you stainless steel appliances. They are a timeless classic that looks phenomenal in any kitchen – especially for those that are trying to upgrade to a more modern space.

Invest in a kitchen appliance suite in stainless steel. While you can purchase just one appliance, you want them to all look uniform since mismatched appliances in a kitchen can throw the look off entirely. When you purchase a suite, the finish will blend perfectly between all of the appliances, giving your kitchen the best look imaginable.

Want to take it a step further? Add stainless steel countertops, too. They can look very modern without looking like a commercial cooking space.

2. Sliding Sink Panels

A kitchen sink is one of those things that will never go away. You need one. But that doesn’t mean you have to look at the big hole in your countertop every time you walk into your kitchen. Technically beautiful drain panels, these sliding sink panels are rather versatile. They can either sit next to the sink, covering one side of the sink (perfect for drying a few dishes), or directly covering the entire sink.

So, whether you are hiding a sink full of dirty dishes due to unexpected company (though you should really invest in a dishwasher) or you just want to keep the space looking sleek and beautiful, sliding sink panels can do the trick.

3. Organize Your Drawers

How many times have you spent digging through your drawers, looking for the pizza cutter or a certain serving spoon? It is so easy to just throw everything in a drawer and call it a day. Well, easy until you need something.

Quit telling yourself that you are going to organize your drawers and just do it. There are a few things that will help you get the job done. This includes drawer organizers that break the big space up into smaller sections so that each type of utensil can have its own space – as well as the addition of strip lighting that will automatically light the space when the drawer is opened. Talk about a modern day space for a modern day kitchen!

4. Countertop Storage is a Must

There are many different types of countertop storage available. Roll-back countertops that expose storage underneath them. Shelving that stacks along the wall at the back end of the countertop. And so many more. Different designs look more like a flush countertop space than they do a storage space. And as time passes, designers are bound to get more and more creative. Being able to order these storage options in a way that is custom-fit for your kitchen presents you with a great opportunity.

Modern-day kitchens opt for minimalist storage and clean countertops. So finding just the right fit for your kitchen can give you access to both.

5. An Uncluttered Island

Having an island in your kitchen can come in handy as it can be used for dining, unloading groceries, and even as a prepping space. Some may have a sink and a cooktop, too. But too much on this island, and it can look clunky and even unsightly.

Cooktops with big knobs, for instance, may look wonderful in a traditional kitchen, but for those seeking a modern-design look, it is too much. You need a clean, sleek cooking surface with digital controls. This will keep the space looking flat, clean, and uncluttered.

6. Separate Drink Storage

Modern kitchens need a drink fridge. It’s that simple. And it should have a glass door as if it is putting those beverages on display. Sodas, water, juices, and more can neatly be housed in this small refrigerator – and free up space in the main refrigerator.

42 Bottle Dual Zone Built-in Wine Cooler by THOR Kitchen

For wine drinkers, a wine refrigerator is a must-have, too. One or both may be ideal for your modern kitchen. Just try not to combine them together so you can preserve the temperature and optimal taste of your wine.

7. Improve your Kitchen Lighting

A modern kitchen is not going to have lighting sources that stand out unless it is a focal point in the room. In that case, make it dramatic and beautiful. The rest of the lighting should be along the edges, under counters, at the floor level, and so forth. LED lighting strips can give you the sleek modern look you are going for. The space in every kitchen is different so use it accordingly. But whatever you do – get rid of the old fluorescent lighting fixtures. They are outdated in both their looks and their ability to provide you with the most effective and energy-efficient lighting source.

8. An Induction Cooktop

Induction cooktops and cooking has been around for a while, but it is just now growing in popularity here in the United States. It uses a sleek glass cooking space (perfect for the uncluttered island we discussed above) and cooks your food using magnetic heat – without ever getting the cooking surface hot.

Induction vs Electric Cooktop: Which Should You Buy?

Induction vs electric cooktop: Which should you buy?

If you are in the market for a new cooktop, you may find yourself looking at all your choices while scratching your head. There are so many to choose from – and so many new options, such as induction vs electric cooktop.

Like, induction cooktops. What are they? Is induction better than electric? Should you just stick to what you know? Or is it time to invest in something new?

If you’ve got just a few minutes, let’s run through all the differences between an induction vs electric cooktop so that you know which one you should buy.

The Cost

Cost is one of the things that many consumers look at first when making a big purchase. For some, it doesn’t matter how great a certain appliance is if it costs a great amount more than other options on the table. Affordability is often a must.

So, how does the cost of an induction cooktop compare to an electric version? Believe it or not, there is not much difference between the two. In most instances, induction cooktops are slightly higher than electric, but the difference is often not significant.

If you were basing your decisions on cost, you wouldn’t find it here. You will have to take a look at a few other key factors.

Heat Generation

The way heat is generated by each of these cooktops varies. In fact, it is the biggest difference that sets them apart. Unlike a gas cooktop, they both use electricity to obtain their heat, but that is where the similarities end.

With an electric cooktop, you have an element that heats up an iron coil. This coil becomes hot and will, in turn, heat your pan for cooking. Some electric ranges will have this coil exposed, whereas most electric cooktops have it encased under the glass cooking surface.

Heat generation using an induction cooktop is different. This type uses magnets to transfer heat between the cooktop and the pan. There is an electric current that runs through a coil creating a magnetic field in and around the cookware. The heat goes from one to the other without touching the cooktop itself.

Safety

Whether you realize it or not, there are many dangers lurking in your kitchen. And burns while cooking is one of them.

Because of the manner in which heat passes through the magnetic field in an induction cooktop, the surface never gets hot. You could place a stack of napkins in between the burner and the pan, and they would be absolutely fine. That’s how cool the surface remains while cooking. This is very beneficial when it comes to safety concerns – especially involving kids and pets.

An electric cooktop will remain hot even after the burner is turned off. As time passes, it will cool down and become safe to touch. Most electric cooktops will come equipped with safety features letting you know when the surface is or is not safe to touch.

Efficiency

Efficiency is always an important topic when referring to money and energy. So it is only natural that it will be something to consider when investing in a new cooktop. Between an electric vs induction cooktop, which one is more efficient?

Electric cooktops offer a consistent flow of heat which is important for energy efficiency. Unfortunately, a lot of this heat can escape into the atmosphere in your kitchen, wasted. This also makes your kitchen temperature rise and forces your air conditioner to work that much harder.

Induction cooktops, as you know, don’t allow heat to escape. Remember, their surface is always cool to the touch – even when actively cooking. This means that there is no wasted energy at all – from the cooktop or the air conditioner.

Cookware

Something you may not have considered is the cookware needed to use each of these cooktops. While cooking on an electric cooktop allows you to use any piece of cookware you prefer, the same does not hold true for induction cooktops.

Because a magnetic field is utilized to transfer heat in induction cooking, you will need the proper cookware to receive the heat and cook your food. For instance, this needs to be ferrous metal like stainless steel or cast iron. Cookware made of copper, glass, ceramic, or aluminum won’t work.

If you are partial to your cookware, this may be something to consider.

Induction vs Electric Cooktop: Pros and Cons

Below you will find a breakdown of the pros and cons of both induction cooktops vs electric cooktops. You can use these to help you make your decision.

Induction Pros:

+Highly energy efficient

+Faster heating times

+Even heating

+The surface remains cool during and after cooking

+Easy to clean

+Easier response to changes in temperature

Induction Cons:

-Only works with certain cookware

-More costly than other options

Electric Pros:

+Familiar and easy to cook with

+Easy to install

+Energy efficient 

+Less expensive

Electric Cons:

-Residual heat left behind after the burner has been turned off

-Slower to heat up – resulting in longer cook times

-Potential uneven distribution of heat through coils

Induction vs. Electric: Which Should You Buy?

Well, since you have stuck around to learning the ins and outs of induction and electric cooktops, which should you buy?

It all comes down to your personal choice. Take some time to consider what matters most. For instance, would you rather have a safe, cool cooking surface or the ability to cook with any pan you own? Or does it matter more that you save money initially on your one-time purchase or continually over the years due to your investment in an energy-efficient appliance?

Take a look at your choices and decide what is a better fit for your home. Then, when you are ready, explore the high-quality, pro-style appliances by Thor Kitchen. Both their induction cooktop and electric cooktop give you a long-lasting cooking solution for your kitchen. With a lot of features and attention to detail, you may be surprised how this one purchase can boost the value of your home!

Choosing a Beverage Refrigerator With Glass Door for Your Kitchen

Choosing a beverage refrigerator with glass door for your kitchen

Sometimes you walk into a house, and it looks like the owners really know what they are doing. Everything seems so well organized and put together. It seems rather, well, grown-up. Or, maybe, it is just the home of an adult who has their stuff together. Whatever it is, it looks good – and you want to have it. So, first things first, you need a beverage refrigerator with glass door for your kitchen.

Why? Because grown-ups who have it together know just how handy, cool, and sophisticated this addition to their kitchen is.

Before you make that purchase, consider the following questions.

What Will You Use it For?

Beverage refrigerators, also dubbed wine coolers, are the perfect place for storing wine. It is like having a wine cellar without the cellar. You can display wines just as they are intended to be – on their side, keeping the cork moist, perfect humidity, ideal temperature, and all for the optimal taste.

The good news is that beverage refrigerators don’t have to store wine at all. You can use it to store water, juice, soda, beer, and the like, as most can store different size bottles and cans, too.

Having an idea of how you intend to use your beverage refrigerator can make it a bit easier when finding the best option for your kitchen.

How Many Drinks Will You Store?

Do you have a lot of drinks you are looking to store? Is this going to be for your everyday use? Will you stock it up for parties and social gatherings? Is it something you want to use to showcase your wine collection? If so, how many bottles of wine do you have?

A beverage refrigerator with glass door can come in all different sizes, so having an idea of how much you’d like for it to store is always beneficial. After all, investing in one that is too small can mean you will have to restock regularly – and find yourself without cold drinks when the supply gets too low. Too large, and you may find that you either need to buy extra just to fill it or stare at a silly-looking half-empty fridge.

Take some time to consider your answer to this question before you make your purchase.

How Much Space Do You Have?

Again, there are different sizes of beverage refrigerators, so you should be able to find one that fits your space. Where will you place it in your kitchen? Do you have enough space for a single door, or will french doors be a better fit? Will you install it under a countertop? Or next to it?

Know the space you have available before you shop so that you find the perfect fridge for the beverages in your kitchen.

Which Special Features Matter Most To You?

Beverage refrigerators may be small, but they sure are mighty. They come with many different special features that you can choose from. Some may offer them all, others just a few. But if you don’t know what is available, how can you make sure you are getting a beverage refrigerator that will best meet your needs?

Below are a few of the features available found on these refrigerators:

Precise Temperature Control

You are going to want your drinks to be stored at different temperatures than you’d keep your refrigerator – and at different temperatures based on what you are storing. For instance, wines have a certain temperature that they should be kept to ensure their perfect taste; you will want your beer to be extra chilled, and so on.

Dual Temperature Zones

Just as we talked about its precise temperature control, there are times when you may want to store more than one thing. Red and white wine have different ideal temperatures. You may want your beer colder than your bottled water (which could freeze) and the like. With dual temperature zones, you are able to maintain two distinct sections with two unique temperatures for the best beverage storage.

Pull Out Racks

Extendable racks come in handy because – let’s be real – no one wants to bend and stretch to get the drink in the back.

Interior Lighting

LED lighting within the beverage refrigerator allows you to see everything inside clearly. With the glass door, you can peek inside and know just what is available. When you open it, you waste less cold air because you are in and out. This makes it more energy efficient. Plus, the LED lights are energy–saving, too!

Security Lock

Interested in protecting your drink fridge? Whether you just really love your soda or you are trying to keep young ones out of the alcohol, you may find that a security lock comes in handy. This is a good feature to have, just in case. Even if you intend to only use it for drinks for the family, there may come a time you’d like to lock up the hard stuff.

Door Alarm

Accidentally leaving the door open can lead to warm drinks. And if you are storing something that is sensitive to temperature, such as wine, then having a door alarm to let you know it was left open can be very helpful.

Eco-Friendly Refrigerant

It feels good to do something good. A new beverage refrigerator with glass door may come equipped with R600a, which is an advanced refrigerant that is more efficient and better for the environment.

Charcoal Filtration System

A charcoal filtration system is used to keep the refrigerator running efficiently and cooling as it should at all times. It also works to keep odors at bay, too. Every time you open the door to your beverage refrigerator, it will be cool and fresh, thanks to these filters.

Well, there you go. Everything you have ever wanted to know about choosing a beverage refrigerator with glass doors. Decide how much space you have and how much space within the unit you are going to need, and then decide on all the amazing features that you must have.

Make your purchase, plug it in, and fill it up. Then pat yourself on the back. You’ve finally become one of those grown-ups that have it all together.

How to Use a Warming Drawer

How to use a warming drawer

There are some kitchen appliances that are necessities, such as a refrigerator or oven. And then there are those appliances that are just an absolute must-have, such as a warming drawer that’ll bring you so much extra joy – and make your life easier (hey, sometimes you have to factor in convenience!). But, just what is a warming drawer? And do you know how to use a warming drawer with all its features?

While it isn’t going to keep your non-perishables from perishing, and it isn’t going to do the cooking for you, it can really warm your heart – along with your food.

Let’s find out how it works.

What is a Warming Drawer?

A warming drawer is just like it sounds – a drawer that keeps things warm. While traditional warming drawers are those that come at the bottom of your range (which most people use to store pans), a modern warming drawer comes with a purpose.

This is a premium professional appliance that is bought with intention. They can be used in different ways, but their main goal in your kitchen is to keep dishes warm and ready to serve. After all, who likes to eat a hot meal on a cold plate?

How To Use a Warming Drawer

There are many things you can use your warming drawer for – some ways that you would already consider and others that may be considered outside the box. The good news is that by adding a warming drawer to your kitchen, you are benefiting yourself in numerous ways. Here is how you can use your warming drawer.

Warm Your Dishes. A hot plate will keep your food hot longer – and make it taste better in the long run. Even a hot mug will keep your tea or coffee hot longer, too. Use your drawer for dishware and reap the cozy benefits.

Keep a Meal Hot and Ready. How many times have you cooked a meal and a teenager, spouse, or someone else missed it, so you saved a plate? And how many times have you put that plate in the microwave so that they’d have a lukewarm rendition of the meal when they arrive home?

With a warming drawer, you can keep it hot and just as good as it was when it was ready. And it is sure to be appreciated.

Prepare a Feast – and Serve it all Hot. Cooking a large meal is tough enough, but even more so when you want to keep it all hot. There is nothing worse than having warm eggs and cold pancakes. The good news is that with a warming drawer, you don’t have to worry about anything being cold when it hits the table.

As you prepare your feast, place items in the drawer while you continue cooking. Then, when you are done, it will all be hot and ready to go!

Activate Yeast in Baking. Need your dough to rise quickly? Getting the warm temperatures necessary to activate yeast can be tricky – especially when you need it quickly. Leaving it out on the countertop can cause other concerns to arise, such as contaminants in the air.

With a warming drawer, you have the perfect solution to help get the yeast working. Whether you are making bread or homemade pizza dough, you can whip up your dough and use it quickly once it begins rising in this beneficial appliance.

Warm Towels. Lastly, you can use your warming drawer to warm towels. Like we said – a little outside the box. Yet, oh-so-enjoyable. Think about those cold months coming up and how good it will feel to put on a pair of warm slippers or wrap yourself in a warm robe or towel. You may even warm wet washcloths to be used for opening pores.

What’s not to love?

While warming drawers are most often associated with the kitchen, there is nothing that says they can’t be installed elsewhere in the home. Those who have already benefited from toasty slippers will tell you that a warming drawer makes a great addition to the bathroom.

Thor Kitchen’s 30-Inch Warming Drawer

Thor Kitchen’s 30-inch warming drawermodel number TWD3001, is designed with multiple different functions and temperature ranges so that you can get the most out of it. It comes in a timeless stainless steel finish to blend with your other appliances and looks beautiful, too.

Plus, it comes with some pretty amazing features, such as:

Flexible temperature control: To get the most use of your warming drawer, you need options when it comes to temperature. This unit can vary from 86 degrees to 185 degrees to address all your heating needs.

Multiple modes: You can use this warming drawer in different modes, depending on your need. For instance, you can keep plates and mugs warm, or you can activate yeast for baking. And that is just a small part of all it can do.

Sleek design: Its sleek design fits smoothly into any kitchen. It looks great and fits perfectly. It is sure to fit perfectly regardless of your kitchen style or design.

Humidity control: You don’t want things to get wet due to high humidity when you place them in the warming drawer. Having a hidden humidity control valve can reduce that issue altogether.

Hidden LCD display and controls: The hidden control display helps maintain the sleek design. From it, you can adjust the timer, temperatures, and functions.

Soft close drawer: Easy sliding – and quiet, too – no one will ever know you have been sneaking small nibbles.

Serving pans: For your convenience, it comes equipped with three serving pans and two removable serving rails.

Drawer open alarm: Leaving the drawer open too long can let out a lot of heat and waste energy. The door alarm will alert you so that this does not happen.

Professional Kitchen Range 101: Styles, Space, and Size

Professional kitchen range 101: Styles, space, and size

There are certain things that you buy for your kitchen without any great research, knowing that they may or may not last a while – and you are ok with that. For instance, a new small kitchen appliance that is all the rage today may be forgotten tomorrow. Then there are those other kitchen additions that you actually invest in, like a professional kitchen range. You do your research, you look at all the options, and you choose the one that is going to enhance your life.

In the case of a new kitchen range, you learn about the styles, the sizes, the space, and the features. You find that one that is not only going to enhance your life but also boost your home’s value. And then you buy it.

Before you swipe that card, it is time to get schooled in Professional Kitchen Range 101.

The Term Professional Matters

Being the good student that you are, you understand that there is usually a meaning behind a name. In other words, we don’t just call a professional kitchen range a professional range for no reason. The word professional matters. It sets this range apart from others. Here’s why.

Back in the 1980s, there became a switch. Consumers were showing interest in commercial-grade ranges. After all, these appliances were built with more durability and more beneficial features – both much needed due to their heavy daily use. But what about those families that use their range day in and day out to cook for large households? Their ranges couldn’t keep up with cooking. Yet, a homeowner didn’t have the space for a commercial-size range even if it could be afforded.

Pro-style ranges were developed. These ranges brought the strength, durability, reliability, and features of a commercial range and combined it with the size and beautiful aesthetics found in a residential range. We’re talking more powerful burners, griddles, and still gentle simmers.

They do come at a cost.

Professional Sizes

The standard size of a residential range is 30 inches to 36 inches. You can purchase a professional range in these sizes. But, because we want more options, it has been delivered. You can find pro-style ranges in 48-inch and even 60-inch sizes. The larger the range, the more options, burners, and features it likely has, such as a griddle.

Not to mention that if the stove top is bigger, the oven is going to be bigger, too. And that’s a score!

Before you make your purchase, you need to determine just how much space you have so you know what size you can feasibly fit in your kitchen.

Address Ventilation Concerns

You are going to need a range hood if you purchase a pro-style range. These powerful appliances produce a lot of heat, moisture, odor, carbon monoxide, and other toxins. Having proper ventilation will keep the air in your kitchen cooler and much healthier to breathe.

Keep in mind that you will want to choose your range hood after you have decided on the size of your range. That way, you can be sure that your hood is powerful enough to handle it.

Styles to Choose From

There are so many different styles to choose from when it comes to purchasing a professional kitchen range, including red, blue, white, and even stainless steel ones. Also, some come with extra trim and or look like they are straight out of the 1800s.

And while all of these are absolutely beautiful and probably work just as good as they claim, there is just something about a timeless classic, wouldn’t you agree? A stainless steel professional range is stunning with any decor or design idea. As your tastes evolve over the years, your shiny range will still fit in perfectly. Plus, since stainless steel is so easy to keep clean, you are sure to have an everlasting shine!

5 Summer Baking Recipes to Make in a Wall Oven

5 summer baking recipes to make in a wall oven

Summertime always gives you something to look forward to. You spend time with friends and family, head out on excursions and adventures, throw some unforgettable barbecues in your backyard with your awesome outdoor kitchen suite… or maybe even try your hand at some new, delicious summer baking recipes in the wall oven.

Oh, sweet summer. Literally.

A Taste of Summer à la Cake

Did you know that there are cakes out there that capture the taste of summer in every bite? It’s true. From watermelon and lemon lime to margaritas and sweet tea, we’ve selected five summer baking recipes to make in a wall oven.

Which one are you going to try?

1. Watermelon Cake

Ok, we should preface this one by saying that you don’t have to purchase a watermelon for the ingredients of the watermelon cake. In fact, there is no watermelon at all in the cake. It gets its name because the cake looks just like one. And that alone makes it a beautiful addition to any summertime table setting.

The base for the cake is a red velvet cake mix with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. Then, creating homemade icing mixed with variations of different colors, the cake can come together beautifully to look just like a watermelon. Optionally, add your own twist with different toppings, if you’re feeling a little creative!

Watch out, though – it may just turn out too pretty to eat!

2. Lemon Lime Poke Cake

This bright and colorful lemon-lime poke cake is refreshing, light, and delicious – everything you need for a summer dessert. The poke part of the cake refers to the holes that are poked in the top of the cake so that the filling can make its way down into the cake, rather than just remain on top.

It all starts with a white cake. Sure, you could make your own, but – it is summer, and you’ve got places to go, people to see, and things to do. Why take the time? With all the extra flavors you are going to add, a boxed white cake works just fine.

Flavors of lemon and lime make their way into it using zest and juice of each – plus slices of each on top, too. The finished product is the perfect combination of tangy and sweet. And it looks amazing, too.

3. Dreamy Lemon Cheesecake

Cheesecakes taste good all the time – for any occasion. You can add all sorts of different flavors to them and achieve different results. Some are made sweeter by adding milk, dark, or white chocolate, while others are fruity, with the addition of strawberries or blueberries. And then you’ve got this dreamy lemon cheesecake – with a smooth tart flavor your taste buds are sure to love.

And not only does it taste delightful, but it also looks like summer, too!

This recipe comes with all kinds of ordinary cheesecake ingredients, such as cream cheese, heavy cream, eggs, and the like. But it also has a surprise ingredient, too – are you ready? Two-and-a-half cups of crushed cream-filled lemon sandwich cookies, such as Lemon Oreo Sandwich cookies. Yum!

Combined with lemon juice and lemon zest – and drizzled with a yellow food coloring gel and topped off with a lemon slice. This, too, is bright and beautiful for any summertime get-together.

4. Margarita Cake

Yes, you read that title right. A margarita cake. And yes! It even comes with some tequila and lime, too.

On a hot summer day, what could be more refreshing than a frozen margarita with a perfectly salted rim? Ahh… well, a frozen margarita with a perfectly salted rim and a slice of margarita cake!

This cake envelopes all the flavors of the drink – margarita mixer, lime, tequila – and it mixes it all together in a light and fluffy cake. It’s the perfect shade of margarita, and you won’t want to forget to top it off with slices of lime.

Everyone is sure to enjoy it!

5. Sweet Tea and Lemonade Cake

Tea and lemonade? In a cake? If you have ever had a sip of an Arnold Palmer iced tea and lemonade on a really hot day, you are sure to understand just what we are talking about. It is refreshing and delightful. And definitely worth trying together in a cake. Note: You don’t have to be on the golf course to enjoy this cake.

This recipe for a sweet tea and lemonade cake creates a cake from scratch and includes 3-family-sized tea bags. This gives it that iced tea flavor. Then, the cake is topped with a cream cheese frosting that is flavored with lemon juice and lemon zest.

The combination together is divine. But you can take it to a whole new level by throwing in some vodka or bourbon into the frosting. Talk about a cake made for summer!

For garnish, add slices of lemon on top.

The Importance of an Electric Wall Oven

Face it, when it comes to baking in the summertime, the kitchen can get hot – so you want to make sure your cake turns out good the first time, so you don’t have to bake it more than once. This is where having an electric wall oven comes in handy. Gas-powered ovens can work well, but any particular baker will tell you that they just cannot compete with the steady flow of heat you receive from an electric oven.

Thor Kitchen’s 30-inch professional electric wall oven can bring you a ton of benefits in general. But, for your summer baking? It has multiple convection modes so that you get heat all around for thorough baking. You will have an evenly baked finished product every time.

As if the perfectly baked cake wasn’t enough, you will find these features, too:

-Touch glass control panel

-Hidden bake element

-Large oven capacity

Easy-to-clean stainless steel finish

-Power and control from a 3500W top heater and a 3000W bottom heater

-Self-cleaning function

-Blue enamel interior that is easy to clean

-White LED display

It is a wonderful high-quality design that is built to last. No matter how many of these summertime cakes you decide to bake over the years, your wall oven will continue to look as beautiful as it did the day you got it.

All you have to decide is which one of these summer baking recipes you are going to try first!

Upgrading to a Microwave and Warming Drawer Combo

Upgrading to a microwave and warming drawer combo

Microwave ovens have been around for decades, but they deliver meals that look much different than the ones that used to come in the perfectly sectioned frozen t.v. dinners. Today, microwaves are used for cooking everything from popcorn and pizza rolls to heating up leftovers or even cooking a turkey! They are kid-friendly, perfect for tasty recipes when you are running short on time, and don’t even get us started on the fact that you don’t have to wash any extra pans when you opt for microwave cooking–or even better, a microwave and warming drawer combo.

But, let’s be real – if you have done a search to purchase a new microwave, you have found that there are a ton of different options to choose from. If you are looking to upgrade your current microwave, then you need something that goes above and beyond. That’s what you will find with a microwave drawer. Here’s everything you need to know.

Why Upgrade Your Microwave?

There are many different reasons you may consider when upgrading your microwave – some functional, others purely cosmetic. For instance, if you have found that your foods are not heating as quickly or evenly as they once did, or if you smell a burning smell (that isn’t from your food), then it may be time to be out with the old and in with the new.

Below are a few more signs you should make the change:

-Loud or unusual noises while cooking. You are going to hear your microwave, but if it begins making noises that don’t sound like its normal self, let it go.

Broken seal around the door. This is in place to keep radiation in. If the seal is cracked, worn, or broken, it could be a hazard.

-Non-functioning keypad. If you can’t tell the microwave how long you need it to cook, then it’s time to say goodbye.

-It’s old. Technologies have improved over the years – so if your microwave is several years old, you could be due.

Of course, sometimes you just want to upgrade your microwave because you don’t like the one you have – or maybe it doesn’t fit your decor anymore. Perhaps you got on the bandwagon and bought a bright red counter microwave a few years ago and have now decided that you don’t want the clutter – or the red. Whatever the reason is, you have decided to upgrade your microwave, and it’s ok. This is an easy appliance for you to change out.

What is a Microwave Drawer?

A microwave drawer cooks like a microwave because, essentially, that is what it is. However, it pulls out like a drawer rather than having a swinging door. These are most often installed in lower cabinets and are designed for you to pull them out like a drawer, insert food, then close and cook.

Unlike most other microwaves, a microwave drawer is designed to cook your food evenly without requiring that you have a turntable inside. This makes it much easier to cook larger items since they don’t have to spin around.

There are many additional benefits of a microwave drawer, such as:

-Doesn’t take up space on your countertop or crowd the around above your range

-Easy to install – even on a kitchen island

-No turntable

-Large interior space to accommodate large dishes

-Easy to access from above, such as to stir, add seasonings, etc.

-Looks like it is high-end customization in your kitchen

-Smooth drawer mechanics

Benefits of a Warming Drawer

Contrary to popular belief, a warming drawer and a microwave drawer are not the same things. In fact, they are very different. A microwave drawer heats the food, whereas a warming drawer keeps hot food hot.

Many people have started to include warming drawers as part of their kitchen appliances because they offer so much convenience. A warming drawer, as its name suggests, keeps food warm until it is time to eat. Have you ever prepared a large meal that you had to cook in shifts – only to send half of it to the table cold? It happens, especially on holidays and special occasions. But it doesn’t have to happen anymore with a warming drawer.

What to Look For When Upgrading your Microwave

If you have decided to upgrade your microwave, there are a few things you will want to consider when choosing. That way, you always feel confident you are making the right decision. Check out these features:

Size. If you are installing a microwave drawer into your cabinet, you need to know the amount of space you have to work with to make it happen. Consider all angles – height, width, and depth so that you ensure you have space all the way around.

Power. You want a microwave that has enough power to cook your food. After all, if you wanted to wait longer for your food, you’d use the oven, right? The higher the wattage, the faster it will cook – keep this in mind.

Features. Depending on when you last purchased a microwave, you may be surprised by all the new features. Know what is out there and what may be beneficial for you.

Finish. There are many different finishes available, but stainless steel is a timeless look that can always stand out from the crowd in both looks and durability.

Thor Kitchen’s Microwave Warming Drawer
