Choosing Cookware for Induction Cooktops

Choosing cookware for induction cooktops

It is exciting to get a new kitchen appliance – especially an induction cooktop. This shiny yet sleek addition to your kitchen can rejuvenate your desire to cook again. Whether you have wanted a reason to pull out your old family recipes or you have a collection of eclectic recipes you’ve gathered online, this is the way to do it. Then again, let’s be real – with all the new advanced features and a cooking method that is off the beaten path, even boiling water can be exciting. But what about compatibility – as in choosing cookware for induction cooktops?

Unfortunately, you will have to kick all the fun to the curb if you don’t have the right cookware for your induction cooktop.

What is Induction Cooking?

Regardless of whether you are used to cooking with electricity or gas, induction cooking is quite different. There is no flame or burners that have to heat up. Instead, this method of heating food involves creating a magnetic field that runs between the cookware and the magnetic coils below the surface.

There is energy created in the electromagnetic field, which then heats up the pot. And it does so quickly without ever heating the surface of the cooktop. You could even put a piece of paper on the cooktop underneath the skillet you are cooking food in – and the paper won’t burn. It remains cool.

You don’t see the electromagnetic heat as it does not produce any flame or bright orange coils. It is just invisible heat.

Benefits of Induction Cooking

So, why are induction cooktops becoming so popular these days? Well, probably because they come with so many incredible benefits that make cooking at home to the next level. A few of them include the following:

Fast and efficient cooking. Because you aren’t waiting for anything to heat up before it heats your pan, it has actually been proven to bring water to a boil at a much faster rate than other cooking methods.

Safe. Since the surface of the cooktop never heats up, it remains cool to the touch – and safe for little hands or paws. This also significantly reduces the risk of fires in the kitchen.

Easy to clean. Any spills or messes on an induction cooktop can just be wiped up. There is no way for them to burn to the surface because it doesn’t get hot.

Energy efficient. These cooktops use much less energy than electric or gas cooktops, which makes them much more energy efficient.

When you choose the right induction cooktop, such as a model offered by THOR Kitchen, you will also get an appliance that offers you the ability to cook with a lot of features. Not only do these features make the cooktop even better, but they also enhance your cooking experience.

Below are a few of the features you will find with a 30-inch built-in induction cooktop with 4 elements by THOR Kitchen:

-Nine power levels, so you get just the right amount of heat you need based on what you are trying to achieve.

-Power boost elements that allow you to reach your desired temperature fast.

Digital LED displays and touch controls are easy to read and use.

-Residual heat indicator and child lock offer you extra protection and safety in the kitchen.

-Automatic safety shut-off feature. If the unit does not sense the presence of cookware on the burner after two hours, it will shut off automatically.

Of course, this is all in addition to its incredible good looks and sleek design!

What Cookware Works with Induction Cooktops?

Induction cooking uses an electromagnetic field to create the energy that heats the pot. That means there has to be a magnetic connection between the cooktop and the cookware, right? Therefore, in order for that to happen, cookware for induction cooktops must be magnetic as well.

But, since you now know that not all cookware will work with an induction cooktop, what can you use? It is important to determine just what type of pots, pans, skillets, and so forth you will need to effectively use your new appliance.

Cast Iron Gets the Job Done

Cast iron and enameled cast iron are both consistent players in the game of induction cooking, beautifully transferring heat without question. Stainless steel is usually a good option, too. However, be careful because sometimes stainless steel has a high aluminum volume, and that won’t work very well.

Avoid Aluminum, All Copper, and Glass

Just as there are certain types of cookware that will work with induction cooktops, there are those that won’t. Don’t even waste your time trying to cook dinner using a pan made of aluminum, all copper, or glass.

Many cookware manufacturers are now adding induction-compatible bottoms to their pots and pans so that they will work regardless of what the rest of the pan is made of. And many are also adding a symbol to the packaging so that you know ahead of time whether or not it will work. It looks like four loops of coiled wire – and it may also state “induction ready.”

A Simple Compatibility Test

You may know what to look for in the future pans you purchase, but what about the ones you have? How do you know if they will work with an induction cooktop if you decide to invest in one?

If you aren’t sure what type of pan you have or that it will work with your induction cooktop, consider trying this simple test using a magnet.

Place the magnet close to the bottom of the pan. Did it cling tightly and quickly to the pan? If so, it will work perfectly with your cooktop. Was it a gentle magnetic pull? Was there no magnetic pull at all? It likely won’t be a very good fit with your new cooktop.

Get It All with Induction Cooking

Investing in an induction cooktop can be a very wise decision with many advantages. As long as you have the right cookware, then you can enjoy all it has to offer. And now that you know just what you need – what are you waiting for? See where the nearest THOR dealer is and find the perfect induction cooktop for your kitchen space.

Stay Warm and Cozy with National Soup Month

Stay warm and cozy with national soup month

There is something completely satisfying and comforting about a warm bowl of soup. With the temperatures dropping and the weather changing, it is no surprise that January is National Soup Month – the perfect time to create something delicious on the range stove.

Warming the body from the inside out, soup is that cozy food that everyone in the family can enjoy. And it is so easy to make, too, as a one-pot meal!

There are so many options to choose from. So grab your soup pot – we are talking all things soup today.

What Makes Soup So Amazing?

Although in modern times we celebrate National Soup Month, rumor has it that soup has been around for thousands of years. While we may not have likely found the first-ever broth to be so appetizing, soup has evolved over the years with different ingredients, spices, and flavors that come together to create all types of flavors.

But why do we love soup so much? What sets it apart from other foods? Perhaps it is all the benefits that it brings, including those of convenience and health.

Soup keeps you warm. On a cold day, sometimes it is just hard to warm up. No matter how many blankets or sweaters you put on, you just can’t shake the chill. But, do you know what can? Soup. Soup warms you up inside – where the blankets can’t reach. And it just feels good.

Soup is nourishing. Soups contain a lot of good ingredients all thrown together, often including a lot of vegetables. This means a lot of nutrients – including fiber – to keep you fuller longer. Plus, it is hydrating, too. You may want to pay attention to the sodium level, as it can be high in some pre-made soups.

Soup is versatile. Throw it together with what you have. While you certainly can follow a recipe, you don’t have to. You can grab the ingredients you have around the kitchen – maybe some leftover chicken and rice, carrots and celery that may be going limp, an onion, the end of your container of kale, etc. Put this in a pot with either broth or water with some bullion or other seasonings – and you’ve got a delicious, healthy soup.

Soup is Perfect for Meal Prep. Some things just don’t hold up well when reheated, but soup is not one of them. This is a meal that you can definitely prepare in advance for the week or even prep and freeze for a later date. It will always taste just as good as the first time.

Soup vs. Stew: What’s the Difference?

Soups and stews are very similar, but they aren’t exactly the same thing. Stews are often thicker than soups, with chunks of meat, vegetables, or other solid ingredients. They contain some liquid, but not enough to force you to use a spoon to eat them.

Soups, on the other hand, have ingredients that are in a broth – or are purely liquified.

The Best Ever Soup Recipes for National Soup Month

Lentil Soup

When using canned lentils, you can have this healthy, filling of Lentil Soup on the table in about 15 minutes. Filled with onion, carrot, celery, garlic, and, of course, lentils that you can feel good about indulging in.

Vegetable Soup

Vegetable soup is a classic. Filled with chunky vegetables, sometimes including beans and/or noodles, this is a warming, hearty soup that everyone is sure to love. It is the perfect way to get in flavorful vegetables – without feeling like you are actually eating vegetables.

Ham and Bean Soup

For some families, keeping the hambone from the Christmas ham results in simmering it for hours to make ham and bean soup. For others, the taste is delicious, but who has time to wait? This soup brings the smokey, salty flavor into the soup using chunks of ham with the beans – without having to wait all day to eat.

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

With all the viruses and sickness going around, there is something to be said about a warm bowl of classic chicken noodle soup. It warms the soul. Is it healing? Some truly believe that it is. Either way, it makes you feel comforted while eating it – and everyone loves that feeling.

Southwestern Chicken Tortilla Soup

If you prefer a more zesty chicken soup, then Southwestern Chicken Tortilla Soup works great. It has the soft crunch from the tortilla, incredible flavors and spices in the broth, and so much more packed into this bowl.

White Bean Chicken Chili

There is something extra special about chili, whether you choose this white bean chicken chili or traditional chili. It is super hearty and extra warm for your insides. Just as chicken noodle goes with not feeling well, chili goes with cold days. This is a delicious recipe with chicken breast, cannellini beans, cheese, onion, jalapeno, and more. Topped with avocado, it is even next level.

Beef Barley Soup

Beef stock with barley and stew beef, along with onion and carrots, can give you yet another hearty, filling soup. The unique flavors come together in a way that sets Beef Barley Soup apart from other soups. And the beef is oh-so-tender. It’s sure to be a hit.

Simmer Your Soups on this Must-Have Range

Imagine walking into your kitchen and loving the space you are in. Grab some ingredients, put a pot of broth on the stovetop, and begin creating an amazing soup recipe. You can even put it on simmer and let it cook all day. It will fill your home with the most amazing aromas and make you feel warm and cozy inside.

THOR Kitchen offers a line of different types of ranges, including gaselectric, and dual fuel. As well as cooktops, too. And each comes with a lot of features you won’t want to miss – including the simmer function that will help your soups to stay warm until it is time to eat.

Well, it is about time to head into the kitchen to see what we can use from the refrigerator to create a nourishing, delicious soup. Vegetable? Chicken and wild rice? Beef barley? Yum. Something tells us you may do the same.

Happy National Soup Month!

National Keto Day: Eat Good, Eat Healthy

National Keto Day: Eat Good, Eat Healthy

Have you ever heard of National Keto Day, celebrated on January 5?

If we had a dollar for every time we heard or saw these phrases, we’d likely have to take a lot of trips to the bank.

“I lost 30 pounds on keto.”

“I can’t eat that, I’m keto.”

“I’m finally in ketosis!”

“Keto-friendly.”

Keto has been growing in popularity for several years, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. In fact, many people swear by it, saying that it is the easiest way to lose weight and keep it off – and others boasting that you still get to eat all the good stuff.

But there is more to being healthy than just losing weight. Since we just celebrated National Keto Day on January 5th, let’s shed some light on how you can do it the right way by eating good and healthy with delicious ingredients you can add to your keto recipes!

Understanding Keto

Keto is short for ketogenic and ketosis. This is a diet that consists of eating low-carb, high-fat, and moderate protein. In other words, the keto diet significantly reduces the number of carbs that you eat while significantly increasing the amount of fat. Then, you throw in some protein.

This combination is what has helped many lose a lot of weight.

In the average diet, carbs are highly prevalent – and they provide lots of energy. When they are burned, it turns into glucose. Remove them, and the body has to find an alternate source. It decides to burn fat, creating ketones. And your body goes into a state of ketosis.

You feel good when you are in ketosis. You feel vibrant and energetic with a clear mind. And, when done right, there may be many health benefits in addition to weight loss, including a lower risk of:

-Heart disease

-Type 2 diabetes

-Cancer

-Parkinson’s disease

-Alzheimer’s disease

Dirty Keto vs. Clean Keto

There are different ways to try this diet, dirty and clean keto.

Dirty keto is low in carbs and high in fat – just as a keto diet is supposed to be – but the choices in foods are not as good. For example, someone following a dirty keto diet is likely to order a greasy cheeseburger with extra cheese rather than a turkey burger sans cheese or a salad with grilled chicken and high-fat dressing.

This is a diet high in sodium and high in processed foods.

Just because it helps you reach ketosis and, in turn, lose weight does not mean it makes your body thrive. This is important to remember as many who get deeply involved in dirty keto put themselves at risk for increased blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and even obesity.

Does that mean there is a clean keto? Yep – there sure is. Clean keto focuses on higher quality foods, such as whole foods that are full of nutrients and nourishing for the body. This is the keto that can lead to incredible health benefits and longevity. And this is the keto you should be following should you choose to give this diet a try.

What Does a Typical Keto Meal Look Like?

Your typical keto meal will be a combination of foods that include high fats, moderate proteins, and low carbs. So this can include things like:

Crustless Ham and Swiss Quiche. This egg and cheese goodness with ham and even some veggies is a great way to kick off the day – or end it. Change it up and use turkey sausage, cheddar, and spinach for a different flavor. It is not only delicious but healthy, too. 

Tuna salad with hardboiled eggs on top of a salad made of greens is a great idea for lunch. Top with a high-fat, low-carb dressing. Or how about a steak bowl filled with cauliflower rice, avocado, cheese, salsa, and steak bites or ground beef?

Keto Stir Fry is another great meal to have, with chunks of chicken (stick to dark meat) and lots of veggies like broccoli, onions, bell peppers, carrots (or whatever you have leftover in the fridge). All of this is thrown together with a keto-friendly stir-fry sauce made of soy sauce, fish sauce, vinegar, sweetener, and chicken broth. It is a great combination of all the flavors.

What Foods are Allowed/Forbidden on Keto?

Alright, so let’s break this down by lists. For those who are giving a new diet a try, sometimes having lists to pick from – or to avoid – can make things a little bit easier in the beginning.

Carbs

You are allowed to have a few carbs. They shouldn’t account for more than 10% of your caloric intake. And they should be good carbs, too. Here are a few examples:

-Eggplant

-Broccoli

-Cauliflower

-Green beans

-Bell peppers

-Celery

-Zucchini

-Tomatoes

-Spinach

Proteins

Proteins should make up no more than 20% of your caloric intake. Some great options for protein include:

-Dark meat chicken or turkey

-Salmon

-Sardines

-Beef

-Eggs

-Pork

-Shrimp

-Cheeses, full fat

-Plain greek yogurt, full fat

Fats

And, finally, fats. You will need to have some fats stored in your kitchen for easy access to add to your foods, as they should make up between 70% and 80% of your caloric intake each day. Good fat options include:

-Pumpkin seeds

-Chia seeds

-Nuts

-Olive oil

-Avocados

-Coconuts

-Hemp hearts

-Nut butter (no sugar added)

-Olives

So, what do you avoid?

You may be surprised by some of the foods you should avoid on a keto diet, including:

-Low-fat dairy foods

-Oatmeal

-Pasta

-Rice

-Beans and lentils

-Almost all fruits

-Margarine

-Most alcohols

-Snack foods like chips, pretzels, cookies

Eating Good and Healthy on Keto

There are many benefits to giving clean keto a try. Meal planning and sticking to a healthy combination of fats, proteins, and low carbs can lead to weight loss and offer you some mental clarity. Whether or not it is a long-term possibility depends on the person.

Either way, it is always fun starting a new diet and experimenting with new recipes in your kitchen.

4 Types of Refrigerators to Keep Food Fresh and Delicious

4 types of refrigerators to keep food fresh and delicious

Can you imagine having to work to keep your food from perishing? Luckily, technology has come a long way, and there are many types of refrigerators out there to keep your foods super fresh and oh-so-delicious!

Let’s learn about some of them.

The Old Ways of Preserving Food

Years ago, cooling houses were built underground in communities where they would store things like ice and snow from winter to keep meat, fruit, and vegetables fresh. This would keep foods cold during the winter. And, with any luck, being buried underground would help them to survive a bit into spring. Though, you’d definitely have to wave goodbye to an ice-cold brew in the summer.

Thankfully, today’s manufacturing capabilities and advanced technology allow us to have different types of refrigerators in our kitchens to keep our food well and good for longer periods of time. Talk about convenience, right? And yes, this is where the beer is always perfectly chilled.

While refrigerators are now commonplace in kitchens, they are not all created equal.

4 Types of Refrigerators for the Home

Each refrigerator may have its own features and embellishments, but they can all be categorized into about four different types: French door, side-by-side, bottom freezer, and top freezer.

1. French Foor Refrigerators

This type of refrigerator is split in the middle with two doors that open outward from the middle. The freezer is a drawer (or two) on the bottom. These are often considered high-class refrigerators that are easy to fit in any kitchen.

2. Side-by-Side Refrigerators

These refrigerators have been around for years but are again becoming more and more common. Like the french door, they have two doors that open outward. However, one side (the freezer side) is smaller, and it extends from top to bottom. The other larger half is the refrigerator. They may be compact for small spaces, but they are compact inside too. As a result, they are not as easy to store odd-shaped items or to keep things organized in the fridge.

3. Bottom Freezer Refrigerators

As its name suggests, a bottom freezer has a refrigerator with one door up top and a bottom freezer drawer. These are often more user-friendly than side-by-side options as they make it easier to access your foods. However, the large door may not be so ideal for smaller kitchens.

4. Top Freezer

One of the most basic models of refrigerators is the top freezer, which consists of two doors – one for the freezer and one for the refrigerator – both extending fully. Again, not so convenient for small kitchens, but also difficult to see what is in the fridge without having to bed over.

The Best Finish For Your Refrigerator

While there are so many types of refrigerators to choose from, different color choices are also available.

White refrigerators are some of the most common, ordinary options on the market. Black refrigerators are also a common choice. But do you know the one that shines above the rest? And the option that prides itself as the best finish for your refrigerator? Stainless steel.

Not only is stainless steel timeless and beautiful, but it is also durable, resistant to rust and corrosion, sleek, and modern. It works with any type of design style, too.

The best part is that stainless steel is easy to clean. You can wipe away smudges and fingerprints with nothing more than soapy water and a soft cloth – no chemicals required. If you feel like going the extra mile, buff with a little olive oil, and you may even see your reflection.

French Door Refrigerators For the Win

There may be many types of refrigerators to choose from, but there is only one that takes the cake when it comes to the must-have features – and that is the french door refrigerator.

Why?

Well, they take up less space in your kitchen since the doors are half the size they normally are. And since it opens up all the way, you can have a clear view of everything inside. This makes it easier to keep things organized – and to make sure last night’s leftovers of Szechuan tofu takeout don’t get lost in the back of the fridge for months.

The huge freezer drawers help a lot, too, for the same reasons. If you have spent any time utilizing the freezer in a side-by-side refrigerator, you will totally understand just how life-changing freezer drawers can be.

How to Clean Stainless Steel Cookware

How to clean stainless steel cookware

Stainless steel cookware is beautiful, especially when complimented with the range or cooktop. And if cared for properly, it could last you a long time. Unfortunately, so many at-home chefs can make an impressive meal, but their cleanup skills leave much to be desired – even when it comes to their cookware. Knowing how to clean stainless steel cookware is another skill all on its own.

Since a good meal can stem from great cookware, taking the time to understand how to properly care for it, how to address any problem spots, and how to clean it can be very beneficial.

Let’s take a closer look at how to give your stainless steel cookware the care and attention it deserves.

How to Clean Stainless Steel Cookware

Make regular cleaning a routine. But before you begin, make sure that you have given your pot or pan a chance to cool down first.

When it comes to cleaning your cookware, never ever use abrasive cleaners or cleaning sponges/cloths. In fact, just come to terms now with the fact that you should never use anything other than mild dish soap and a soft sponge for cleaning stainless steel.

Having food burned to the bottom of your pan may prompt you to use the trick of boiling water and baking soda to remove it. Or, you may even pull out the steel wool to scrub it off. Unfortunately, both of these things can be too harsh for the finish and cause damage. If your cookware has a warranty, this is enough to void it.

Once you are done cleaning it, be sure to dry your cookware right away to avoid any unwanted water spots.

Daily Care and Use

There is more to caring for your cookware than just washing it. So, if you find joy in cooking, then there is a good chance you are standing over your kitchen range quite often. Knowing a few best practices, if you will, can mean the difference between having stainless steel cookware that lasts you for years to come – and having to routinely invest in a new set.

Let your pans heat up slowly. You never want to place your cold stainless steel pan on a burner with high heat. Instead, heat the pan up slowly. When you have a good quality set with this finish, know that it holds heat. If you start off too high, you could risk burning your food.

Allow cold foods to warm up. When you put cold or frozen foods into a hot stainless steel skillet, they are likely to stick to the surface. The reason for this is that the metal contracts with cold. Before you begin cooking, make it a routine to allow your foods to sit out on the counter for about 10 or 15 minutes so that they are not too cold.

Heat your pan, then add oil. If you don’t want your food to stick to your stainless steel cookware, then let it heat up before you add your oil. Doing so will give you a nonstick surface to work with.

Boil first, then salt. Adding salt to pasta as it cooks can help prevent it from sticking together. It isn’t uncommon to fill a pan with water, throw in some salt, and put it on to boil. However, you do not want to do this with stainless steel. Allowing salt to settle on the bottom of the pan before boiling can leave marks, and a type of corrosion may occur. And just because you cannot see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Always get your water boiling and then add the salt.

Addressing Issues with Your Stainless Steel Cookware

It doesn’t matter how well you care for your stainless steel cookware, there are going to be times when you have a mess in your pan that you cannot seem to clean. Before you chuck it, there are a few things you can do to have your cookware shining like new once again.

Getting rid of build-up. If you have any build-up in your pot, don’t rush to scrub it. Instead, let it soak in some hot soapy water for a couple of hours. This will loosen any debris and make it easier for you to remove the build-up with a non-abrasive sponge.

Removing stuck-on food. Cleaning a pan with stuck-on food can feel like a challenge. First, try soaking the pan, as we discussed above. If that doesn’t work, then fill the pan (or pot) with soapy water that fully submerges the stuck-on food and bring it to a boil. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, try to scrape the food away. This should happen easily, though not always.

Last resort for removing stuck-on food. If you haven’t had success in either of the above methods, you can try to fill the pan with a little water, vinegar, and baking soda – then bring it to a boil. If you have Barkeeper’s Friend, this works well, too. Keep in mind that both of these are abrasive and can potentially damage your pan. You can still be gentle when using them and do so as a last resort.

Rainbow discoloration. While some find it to be beautiful, rainbow discoloration on stainless steel is not normal and can often occur due to overheating. Coating the pan in vinegar diluted with water will help to gently heal the pans so that they no longer have this color. Rinse and then dry.

Getting rid of white spots. White spots can begin appearing on stainless steel cookware and look like small chalky areas. This is often due to the water and the calcium build-up that stems from it. Again, vinegar diluted with water can help. Simply bring it to a boil and then let it cool. Wash and dry as normal.

Investing in Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliances

If you currently have stainless steel cookware – or you are considering making the investment – hopefully, these tips on how to clean stainless steel cookware can help you make the most of it. But before we go, we thought we should mention just how well this cookware will go with stainless steel appliances by THOR Kitchen. Can you picture it? A stainless steel pan on your stainless steel range with your stainless steel range hood above. It’s a beautiful sight.

Together, the timeless shine will last a long time – and through all your decor changes, too.

What are kitchen appliances? They can make cooking easy, effortless, and convenient!

Whether you are building your kitchen from scratch or you are remodeling, there is going to come a time when you have to take a look at the kitchen appliances that you will need – and what you hope to get from them.

We aren’t talking about the little things, like where you will place your espresso machine or whether you will have room for your stand mixer on the counter or in a cabinet. Instead, we are referring to those that make up the heart of your kitchen – the major appliances.

But let’s be real for a minute. Just because you need something doesn’t mean it can’t be something you want. So here is a look at the types and uses so you can fill your kitchen in the most functional – yet aesthetically pleasing – way possible.

Refrigerator

Your kitchen absolutely needs a refrigerator. Sure, you want it to keep your drinks cold, but it also works to preserve your perishable items. Lots of grocery items will spoil if they aren’t kept cold. Choosing the right refrigerator keeps that from happening.

You can’t just invest in any type of refrigerator, though. You want to be able to ensure you have enough space to store all the groceries you just bought – along with some extra space for leftovers. And when we say space, we don’t mean that crowded, stacked mess in which food gets lost and ends up moldy in the back of the fridge.

Having a refrigerator large enough to have space and keep it organized will not only run more efficiently but will also help you save money and give you a chance to eat things before they go bad. Why? Because you can see it!

If you are buying a refrigerator, look for one that has beneficial features, such as:

-Generous storage space

-Crisper drawers to keep produce fresher longer

-Counter-depth so it fits smoothly in the cabinets

-Door storage for big containers

-Showcase LED lighting for efficiency – and so you can clearly see throughout the space

-Adjustable racks and shelves

-Automatic ice maker

-Ice and water dispenser

-Freezer drawer for easy access and easy organization

-Stainless steel finish for shine

-Door alarm

-Energy-star certified

Dishwasher

24 Inch Built-in Dishwasher in Stainless Steel by THOR Kitchen

How much time have you spent washing dishes by hand? Have you ever taken the time to calculate it? What if you could just let the dishwasher do all the work? Imagine the amount of free time you would have on your hands. Speaking of hands, imagine how soft they would feel from not using harsh dish soap every day. Plus, dishwashers more efficiently use water – which could save you money and benefit the planet.

That’s a lot of positive talk for a dishwasher, isn’t it? Although not every dishwasher will provide you with the greatest experience, choosing the right dishwasher will. When a dishwasher is designed properly, it will effectively clean dishes regardless of how soiled they are so that you always have thoroughly clean dishes – that you don’t have to wash.

Before you make that purchase, look for these fantastic features:

-Smart wash system that uses a soil sensor to determine how soiled the dishes are – and adjust the cycle accordingly

-Four powerful spray arms reach all areas of the dishwasher so that all the dishes are clean

-Adjustable racks so that you can always wash even your biggest cookware in the dishwasher 

-Removable utensil basket for convenience

-Fingerprint-resistance stainless steel finish

-Quiet operation

-Energy-efficient ratings

You have a refrigerator to store your food and a dishwasher to clean up the dirty plates after your meal, but how are you going to cook it? You need a range.

There are many different types of ranges on the market, most depending on size and fuel type. For example, there are gas ranges that work on both liquid propane as well as natural gas. And then there are those that are made to run off of electricity. Dual fuel ranges have the best of both worlds, providing you with an oven that uses electric heat and a gas stove. Ask any chef and baker, and they will tell you that this type of range gives you the perfect heat for what you are trying to cook.

Typical sizes for a range can be either 24 inches30 inches36 inches, or 48 inches – with the larger sizes often having more oven space, more burners, and potentially even a griddle.

There is a lot to consider when purchasing a range for your kitchen, as it comes down to space and the amount of cooking that you do. If you aren’t one to spend much time cooking at home, perhaps a smaller option may work well for you. But if you do, then find the right range for your space by taking the following features into consideration:

-High-powered BTU burners

-Luxglide telescopic racks for effortless glide

-Infrared broiler

-Commercial convection fan for even baking

-Energy-efficient LED control panel lights 

-Large oven capacity

-Porcelain oven interior for easy cleaning

-Heavy-duty control knobs 

-Continuous cast-iron cooking grates with porcelain spill tray for durability and easy cleanup on a gas stove

-A smooth, sleek cooktop on an electric range for an easy cleanup

-Precise heat from simmer to boil – and everything in between

-Multiple baking modes, such as bake, convection bake, broil, convection broil

A Stainless Steel Appliance Suite

One thing you can do to make life a little bit easier – and make your kitchen a little more magical – is to invest in an appliance suite. With a stainless steel finish, your appliances would look uniform and pair well together.

It is the perfect way to add something special to your kitchen, benefitting you in both looks and functionality. Not to mention that bringing the uniformity of professional appliances into your kitchen can immediately boost your home’s value.

Should You Buy a Professional Range for Home Use?

Should you buy a professional range for home use?

Asking yourself whether or not you should buy a professional range for home use is like asking yourself whether or not you should drive through a green light. It is just the right thing to do.

Whether you are building your kitchen from scratch or looking to remodel it, you want everything to flow nicely and be totally functional. A professional range that is designed for home use can be the perfect addition. Why? Because a professional range comes with a set of features that you don’t find on every other residential range. And it is built with strength and longevity in mind.

So, again, should you buy a professional range for home use? Absolutely. Here’s why.

It’s an Investment

So many appliances these days seem disposable. You use them for a couple of years, and then they break, costing more to fix than it is to buy another. This can turn into an ugly cycle.

professional range, however, is a different story. It gives you functional use for a really long time. These ranges are durable and built to last. No matter how many times you use it, it shows up to get the job done. Having such a reliable appliance can bring back the joy of cooking for you. You will be cooking over and over again.

This investment, of course, isn’t only for your love of cooking. It also works to boost your home value.

Extra Space + Some

Choosing a professional range for home over other options means having more space. They are designed for heavy use and, for some, that means cooking feasts. You will find ranges that have extra burners and griddles to help you get the job done. And some have ovens large enough to fit multiple dishes and depending on the model you choose, you may even find yourself with a double oven.

No matter how much extra space you need, you will find that a professional range is the one to give it.

Durability and Strength

Professional ranges have durability and strength that can handle being used frequently.

One of the beautiful things about these appliances is that, although they are strong enough to handle life in a commercial kitchen, they don’t lose the soft beauty that makes them a perfect fit for a residential kitchen. In other words, it is like having the best of both worlds – you get something strong and long-lasting without sacrificing any of the good looks.

You can rest easy knowing that when you go to adjust the knob on the range, it isn’t going to fall off. Or that their stunning stainless steel appearance will continue to look as beautiful tomorrow as it did yesterday.

Made with Stainless Steel

Commercial kitchens are often decked out in stainless steel for a couple of reasons. For one, stainless steel is non-porous. That means it doesn’t have any pores to hold bacteria or germs that can be spread in the kitchen. When you wipe the surface down and clean it, there is nowhere left for anything to hide. This will keep your family safe – and may be the #1 reason why you decide to opt for stainless steel appliances.

Another reason to opt for stainless steel is that it is easy to clean. Using water, mild soap, and a soft cloth, you can clean the surface. Add some oil to a soft rag and buff it with the grain, and any shine you were missing will quickly return. There is no need at all for chemicals. This is also another way to keep your family safe.

Finally, stainless steel is stunning. It is a timeless finish that can be with you throughout any design change you may decide to make over the years, as well. Whether you like traditional, modern, contemporary, elegant, farmhouse, or something else, your range will fit the look.

Quality Parts

We mentioned that these ranges are designed with durability and longevity in mind, but in order to make that happen, they have to be made with high-quality parts. This makes it nice because you never have to worry about your range breaking easily. Your daily cooking isn’t going to put great strain from wear and tear on your range easily, so you can feel confident that you are investing in something long-lasting when you purchase a professional range for home.

Incredible Features

A professional range needs to be equipped to give you a greater finished product when you are done cooking. So it doesn’t make sense that you would get the same features. Instead, with a professional range, you can enjoy some incredible features, including:

-Burners that are easily able to handle simmering as well as they can boiling – and every temperature in between.

-Luxglide telescopic racks that will glide out and extend with ease – without tipping and spilling the contents. Even the heaviest dishes are safe.

-Adjustable racks (including the Luxglide) so that you always fit any size dish.

-Infrared broiler.

-Commercial convection fan for even baking.

LED control panel lights that give the range a bit of a pop in color while also being energy efficient.

-Continuous cast-iron cooking grates that can handle any size cookware without looking worn over time.

-Black porcelain spill tray for easy cleanups.

-A griddle that can be used flexibly for additional cooking space.

-Blue porcelain interior within the oven for easy cleaning.

-Heavy-duty knobs that won’t break easily.

-Electric ranges with smooth glass top.

-Multiple baking modes, such as bake, convection bake, broil, convection broil, etc.

Between all the perks that come with it as well as all the features and the longevity, you are sure to realize one day down the road that it was the wisest investment for your kitchen.

Protecting Your Outdoor Kitchen in Cold Climates

Protecting your outdoor kitchen in cold climates

Outdoor kitchens are wonderful to use any time of the year – when you live in the right climate. For those who don’t, figuring out what to do to protect an outdoor kitchen in cold climates through the blustery winter months is a must. After all, you know you are going to be dreaming of the day you can comfortably use your outdoor space again – and it would be a shame if it didn’t work.

5 Ways to Protect an Outdoor Kitchen in Cold Climates

Here’s what you need to do to ensure all is well when the sun comes out tomorrow (err..in a few months).

1. Shut Off the Water Supply

If you have an outdoor kitchen suite that includes an outdoor sink, an outdoor refrigerator, or an automatic ice maker, then you will want to shut off the water supply to these units. When the weather changes, the water that is left inside the line can freeze, and this can potentially damage the internal components of the appliance. Not to mention that the line can also burst and leave you with an even bigger issue.

Shut off the water supply and then drain any excess water remaining in the line. For the sink, turn the knob on to get rid of any water still in the pipe.

2. Clean Your Appliances

Your sink and outdoor refrigerator should be cleaned out well. Any food or beverages left in the refrigerator should be removed – especially if they are perishable. Wipe down the inside and unplug it from its power source. If you have a freezer, be sure to let any ice buildup thaw out and melt before cleaning it. 

Remove any debris that has been left in the sink and give it a good scrub and polish. Then clear the grill of any remaining food residue and dump the grease. Polish both the stainless steel grill and the stainless steel sink so that they have a layer of protection over them through the season. 

3. Protecting Your Gas Grill

Cleaning your grill is only the first step in protecting it throughout the winter months. You will want to make sure that the gas line attached to it is turned off. Then close the hood vent. Your clean grill just needs an outdoor grill cover, and it should be in good shape to make it through until next season. 

To protect your grill grates, it is a good idea to use a little cooking oil to keep any moisture away from them. 

4. Clear Out Your Storage Cabinets

As you use your outdoor kitchen suite, you will find that your storage cabinets get used more and more. So don’t forget to look at them before you call it a day. Remove anything you have stored in there and take it into your home. This includes any cleaners, spices, utensils, and more. 

Once your storage cabinets are empty, it is time to give them a good cleaning. Using mild soap and water, wipe down the cabinets using a soft cloth – both inside and out. Make sure you take the time to dry handles, hinges, and other component parts, so they stay in good working order by the time you get to use them next. If you desire to, adding lubricant to them is a smart idea. 

Go ahead and give your storage cabinets a good polish and then, if you have covers, go ahead and place the cover over them as protection. If yours did not come with any, that’s ok, too. 

5. Don’t Forget the Countertops

You may spend a lot of time caring for the ins and outs of the appliances, but don’t forget to wipe down and clean up the stainless steel countertops of your outdoor kitchen, too. When dealing with an outdoor kitchen in cold climates, it is a good idea to go ahead and polish this, too, so it has a layer of protection against the outdoor weather.

Quick Tips You Won’t Want to Forget

-If you have a propane tank, be sure to remove it from the grill and store it properly.

-Keep as much of your outdoor kitchen covered as possible – especially those areas made of stainless steel.

-Do not let moisture pile up in or on your outdoor kitchen – including any moisture that may have made its way under your cover. Be sure to check this periodically throughout the season.

-Leave the hot and cold taps open on your outdoor sink once the water has been turned off and the lines have been cleared.

-Start taking these steps before the temperatures start dropping into the upper 30s.

The better care you take of your outdoor kitchen suite, the more likely it will reward you when the temperatures start to rise again in the spring.

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.

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.

Brighten Up Your Outdoor Kitchen Suite with Bistro String Lights

Brighten up your outdoor kitchen suite with bistro string lights

We don’t want to thank the global pandemic for much of anything, for sure, but it is safe to say that many of us have become more appreciative of our own outdoors. You know, front porches and backyard spaces that surround our home. And while owning an outdoor kitchen suite can do wonders for transforming the backyard patio, there is just something about bistro string lights to complete the look.

Instead of viewing the backyard as a separate outdoor area that is just there, we can view it as an extension of our living space. We can also begin to really uncover the potential of the space and realize just how comfortable it could be to sit outside and breathe in the fresh air – without ever leaving home.

Let’s look at some of the ways an outdoor kitchen suite enhances your backyard space and why you should brighten it up with bistro string lights.

Perks of Having an Outdoor Living Space

When you decide to transform your outdoor living space, you can take advantage of many different perks that you just can’t get when you are stuck indoors. A few of the biggest, most-pronounced benefits include:

-The ability to entertain and have dinner parties and social gatherings with friends and family. Everyone can spread out, and you don’t have to worry about any damage or messes indoors, either.

-Outdoor kitchen suites allow you to have everything you need right where you need it. This includes the grill, the outdoor refrigerator, the storage, and even a sink. No need to keep going in and out of the house!

-Soak up the vitamin D from the sun and grant your lungs their wish for fresh air to breathe.

-Enhance your overall well-being with freshly growing plants, flowers, trees, herbs, and more. You may even want to consider adding a small garden.

As if all of these perks were not enough, you should know that having an outdoor living space can boost the value of your home, too.

What Your Backyard Patio Needs

The idea of having a welcoming backyard may be exciting, but if you haven’t done anything with yours, where do you start? What does your backyard patio need? First, you need a vision of what you hope to get from the space. Then, you need the following:

Clear any clutter or debris. If you have not used your backyard in a while, you may find that it is full of clutter or debris. Maybe plants or grass are overgrown. Maybe your weeds are growing through your pavers. Or maybe the area has just been a catch-all for the outdoor kids’ toys. Whatever it is, clear it out. Find a permanent storage space for the toys, get to work on your lawn, or call in the landscapers. Do what you need to do to give yourself some space.

An outdoor kitchen suite. This will draw you outdoors in the first place. When you have a nice setup to cook, you are going to want to spend time outdoors. As you do, you will come up with even more ideas. Besides, outdoor kitchen suites by Thor Kitchen look much too good to be left sitting there alone.

Invest in seating. As you wait on your steaks to cook, you are going to want to sit back and relax. And that means you will want to invest in a comfortable, enticing place to sit down. Depending on your preference and your space, you may want lounge chairs, loungers, a chaise lounge, deep-seated chairs, Adirondack chairs, an outdoor dining table with chairs and an umbrella, or all of the above.

Make it inviting. You want to make your space someplace where you will want to spend time. Add some flowers and plants, an outdoor rug, keep the best view open, and so on. Keep it private, if possible, and add a source of shade, too. The more welcoming you make your outdoor space, the more you will be sure to enjoy it.

Light it up. Once you have an outdoor space, you are not just going to want to spend time out there in the daytime but at night, too. Adding some decorative lights can be a great way to light up the space and make it more usable. Do not just rely on your outside flood light. Instead, string some bistro lights throughout the space to top off the look.

Why Bistro String Lights?

Bistro string lights are a very popular choice for lighting up your outdoor kitchen suite area for many different reasons. For one, they can be hung wherever there is activity. They are easy enough to install that you can do it anywhere and light up the space.

These lights set the mood for your backyard space. They are bright enough to see but still offer a cozy, warm atmosphere. Bistro string lights are dazzling and pretty -, and they allow you to get creative in how you hang them. You can string them across the patio, hang them along the covered overhang, or even string them from tree to tree.

Some bistro string lights involve the need for electrical outlets, while others are solar, battery-powered, or rechargeable. This gives you options when looking for the best fit for your space. In other words, if your entertainment area lacks power outlets, you can still light up the space beautifully.

Another benefit of these lights? Security. It helps those who visit to be able to see where they are going so that there are no accidents, but it also lights up the space to deter those with ill intentions. After all, thieves love dark, hidden spaces.

When it comes down to it, bistro string lights are an affordable lighting solution for backyard spaces, but they leave a huge impact on its overall feel.

A Year-Round Backyard Space

If you have an outdoor kitchen suite with bistro lights, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is – you will want to be outdoors feeling free. If that means adding a fireplace, then add the fireplace. When the cooler weather strikes and you are tired of being stuck inside, you are sure to be grateful for this outdoor space.
