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.

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.

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.

7 Spooky Halloween Desserts to Bake in the Wall Oven

7 spooky halloween desserts to bake in the wall oven

Halloween will be here before you know it. Lots of kids decked out in costumes, ringing your doorbell with excitement and anticipation for their next batch of spooky Halloween desserts (straight from the good ol’ wall oven)! All it takes is the shout of trick or treat, and they get candy in their bucket. What more could a kid ask for?

But let’s be real, though – adults need some enjoyment on Halloween, too. And we don’t mean sneaking candy from your kid’s bucket. Halloween is a perfect time to make some ghoulish treats. Whether you are throwing a costume party at your house, trying to make the work day a little more festive, or just want to treat yourself, we’ve got the 411 on the best Halloween desserts you need to have this year.

7 Spooky Halloween Desserts for the Wall Oven

So pick your favs, grab the ingredients, and fire up that stainless steel wall oven. It’s time to whip together a magical potion!

1. Spooky Spider Cookies

You cannot mix cookies and candy together – said no one ever. These creepy crawlers, aka spooky spider cookies, give you all the good feels despite their outward, 8-legged appearance. They are fun, delicious, and perfect for a Halloween treat.

The base is made of a soft peanut butter cookie. Once it comes out of your wall oven, the decorating begins – while they are still hot. Turn these plain cookies into sweet spiders with the help of a mini peanut butter cup pressed into the cookie (the heat will melt it in place). This is the spider’s body. A chocolate-covered peanut or raisin comes next to create its head.

Let the cooking cool, then add some legs with black gel icing. The final step? Pop one in your mouth and enjoy!

2. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are some classics that just need to be left alone. And chocolate chip cookies are one of them. That is, of course, unless you add some pumpkin spice. Let’s just call it an enhanced version. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies take the soft, warm, gooey cookies you have always loved and transform them into a fall must-have. Trust us, you will never look at a chocolate chip cookie the same again.

Gather all the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies, including some canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice (a mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves).

Just 11 to 13 minutes in your wall oven at 350 degrees, and you’ve got yourself a delicious treat.

3. Pumpkin Sheet Cake

Sticking with the pumpkin flavoring because, well, it’s fall – we’ve got a pumpkin sheet cake you won’t want to miss.

Sheet cakes, in general, are simple cakes that you can always count on to be so moist and so incredibly good. It only makes sense that you would make a pumpkin spice version, too.

This recipe includes simple ingredients, including flour, sugar, buttermilk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, and the like. The icing is a mixture of softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, and a few other pantry staples. It throws together nicely and goes into your wall oven for just 20 minutes.

Everyone appreciates a pumpkin sheet cake. And, if they don’t, are they even real? This time of year, you may want to check.

4. Candy-Covered Caramel Bars

You can either invest in some candy to make spooky Halloween desserts, or you can use the candies that come from your kid’s trick-or-treating stash. Candy-covered caramel bars are ooey and gooey and oh-so-delicious!

If you have never used canned dulce de leche, now is your chance. You have a crumbly crust made of things like flour, oats, and brown sugar. This is then baked and topped with the dulce de leche. While it is soft, add candies to the top and press them in gently. Child for at least 2 hours before cutting.

Consider using Kit Kats, Milky Ways, Snickers, M & M’s, or any similar candy. This one is so good we will just say you’re welcome now.

5. Halloween Cake Balls

You’ve undoubtedly seen cake balls at some point. But did you know that Halloween cake balls are so easy to make at home? All you need is a cake mix (try bloody red velvet), frosting, melting chocolate, lollipop sticks, and colorful gel icing.

You make the cake as you normally would in your wall oven, adding some rum if you’d like to adult your cake balls. Then just crumble the cake into fine crumbs. Mix in icing little by little until you can no longer see it, and then roll the cake mix into small balls using a small ice cream scooper.

Melt the chocolate and dip your ball and rest on parchment paper. As it cools, you can begin decorating them as spooky as you’d like. Get creative.

6. Pop Tart Ghosts

Who said pop-tarts are just for kids? Well, humans of all ages will love these pop-tart ghosts. Not only are they super adorable, but they taste so, so good.

You can use store-bought dough (because who has time to make it from scratch?), or you can make your own. And you are going to cut out your ghost shapes. The filling of these pop-tarts is Nutella – yum! Put a top on and seal the edges by pressing down with a fork.

Bake in your wall oven until done!

To get the full ghastly ghost effect, you will glaze them and add some eyes or whatever decorations you think will work best.

Experiment with different designs, too!

7. Brownie Bottom Halloween Cupcakes

Can’t decide between brownies or cupcakes? Well, you don’t have to with brownie bottom Halloween cupcakes. Fill your cupcake tin with a layer of brownie mix and add some Hershey’s special dark cocoa powder to get them almost black. Then top with a vanilla cake batter that you have doused with orange food coloring.

Bake in your wall oven until done all the way through.

Top with some delicious white icing, and then decorate using sprinkles, colored sugar, candy eyeballs, and more.

This is the perfect Halloween cupcake.

Happy Halloween from THOR Kitchen

It just wouldn’t be the same without some spooky Halloween desserts. And those desserts wouldn’t taste as good without a Thor Kitchen wall oven. You know what to do!

9 Kitchen Remodel Tips for Style, Comfort, and Ease

9 kitchen remodel tips for style, comfort, and ease

Whether you love cooking or not, there is a good chance that you spend a lot of time in your kitchen. It is a common space in the home where everyone comes together to spend time with one another, indulge in something delish from a beautiful stainless steel refrigerator, socialize and sip a glass of wine from a built-in wine cooler, or even help the kids with homework. It is no wonder that they dub the kitchen the heart of the home. However, there may come a time when things change in and around the home, prompting you to… let’s say, seek some kitchen remodel tips. Right?

Though as much as we love for things to remain the same, as time passes, things can change – and you will want your kitchen to grow along with your family. This means investing in a few changes that can keep it both beautiful and functional. You don’t have to do a huge remodel to get big results. Simple, effective steps that will improve your kitchen’s style, comfort, and ease will make it a more enjoyable space for everyone.

Kitchen Remodel Tips You Can Apply

Of course, you will want to use your creativity to bring it all together. In the meantime, we’ve put together nine kitchen remodel tips to help you get started on your next journey.

1. Reduce Your Steps with the Right Layout

The layout of the kitchen is important. It doesn’t make sense to have your sink on one side of the kitchen and your cooktop on another – with your refrigerator around the corner. Your kitchen should flow easily as you are using it. In other words, cooking dinner shouldn’t be included as a great way to hit your 10,000 steps for the day.

Consider a layout that is beneficial to how and what you cook. The most flexible and most popular design seems to be the L-shaped kitchen. A U-shaped kitchen layout is a close runner-up. Both allow you easy access to all areas of the kitchen in a way that just makes sense.

2. Color Pleasing to the Eye

You may want to add color to your kitchen, but you want to treat the color in your kitchen a little differently than in other rooms. For instance, a little color in the kitchen goes a long way. You don’t want to have brightly painted cabinets, walls, and a colorful backsplash, for example. Pick one.

3. Choosing the Right Refrigerator

Having the right refrigerator can make a huge difference in how well you enjoy your space. And this 36-inch French door refrigerator with freezer drawers by Thor Kitchen is one that you won’t want to miss.

It has open space, ample storage, LED showcase lighting (think, no missing leftovers), an automatic ice maker, and so much more. The French doors take up less space when opening, and the freezer drawers offer many ways to stay organized.

4. Keep it Cool with Induction Cooking

Induction cooking has been around for quite a while, but it is just now starting to grow in popularity. It is a safe method of cooking that uses a magnetic field to get the heat from inside the cooktop to the pan without ever making the surface hot.

Induction cooking is fast, efficient, and precise. Thor Kitchen offers a 30-inch and a 36-inch Induction cooktop with LED digital display, power boost, nine power levels, automatic shut-off, and more.

5. Extra Cooking Space with an Electric Cooktop

You may have your range, but why not add extra cooking space with an electric cooktop? For those who cook a lot, sometimes having the extra burners can ensure everyone gets to eat a hot meal all at the same time.

This 36-inch electric cooktop from Thor Kitchen comes with powerful burners, nine power levels, touch class controls, five elements, and so much more you won’t want to miss. This works perfectly when placed on your kitchen island. It is a Good Design Award Winner, too – so, ahem, if you are looking to make good design choices, it’s a solid pick.

6. Bring Convenience to Your Range

When you are standing at your range, it is convenient to have a lot of things easily accessible. So, arrange it that way by bringing convenience to it. Adding a nearby shelf to hold various cooking oils that you use is a great idea. Also, utilizing S hooks to hang pots, pans, or various utensils can help out a lot. Finally, keep your spices close by to easily add flavor to your dishes.

7. Light it Up

Lighting is so important in a kitchen. Generic overhead lights work great, but it doesn’t give your kitchen much character or personalization. Try investing in at least one eye-catching unique light that will stand out in the space.

As for natural lighting, take advantage of it – especially in small kitchens.

8. Organize, Organize, Organize

Because you do spend so much time in the kitchen, it is easy for it to get cluttered. Minimize the clutter by taking steps to keep everything organized. There are many different types of organizational systems you can look into to find what works best in your space.

9. Choose a Versatile Finish

Let’s be real, there is a good chance that there will come a time when you will no longer like the look of your kitchen. You will decide that it is time for a change and want to begin taking steps to remodel your space. Except, you realize that you have invested in kitchen appliances that don’t blend well with other decor or design styles. For instance, red appliances may really pop when used with one design, but they definitely won’t fit with everything.

Stainless steel appliances, on the other hand, are classy, timeless, and versatile. They can be used in all types of design options for your kitchen, so you will never limit yourself. When purchasing a stainless steel kitchen suite, you get all the appliances you need with the exact same beautiful finish for a uniform look.

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

Do Range Hoods Have to be Vented Outside?

Do range hoods have to be vented outside?

Have you ever wondered, “Do range hoods have to be vented outside?” If so, you’re not the only one. In fact, it’s a common question most people have when purchasing or considering a range hood for a kitchen.

For many homeowners, there are often a lot of unknowns when it comes to range hoods. You know that if you have a kitchen mishap and your food starts smoking, as you fan your smoke detectors with your kitchen towel, you reach over and flip on the vent from your range hood.

As the smoke begins to dissipate, you may find yourself questioning – where does it go? How does the vent work? Believe it or not, this much-needed appliance is not magic but rather a simple machine that helps you breathe in the freshest air while cooking.

If you don’t currently have one, don’t worry – you can easily install one in your kitchen, as range hoods do not have to be vented outside.

The Purpose of a Range Hood

Every time you cook, you are potentially releasing toxins and carcinogens into your kitchen. Heterocyclic amines (HCAs) are carcinogenic chemicals that come from cooking meat, poultry, and fish at high temperatures. Acrylamide is like an HCA that comes from vegetables and grains rather than meat. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are additional carcinogens that come from cooking over an open flame. And this is in addition to formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, and nitrous dioxide, to name a few.

Just so you understand this right, everyone in your kitchen may be exposed to these toxins when you cook. And it even includes your kids.

This is where a range hood comes in.

You flip it on, and the dirty air gets sucked out, including the steam, heat, odor, smoke, etc. The result? You and your loved ones are left with healthy, clean air to breathe, and you don’t have to smell last night’s fish when you open your eyes in the morning.

Ducted and Ductless Range Hoods

The purpose of a range hood may be to give you clean air to breathe, but it doesn’t always happen in the same way. There are two different types of range hoods – ducted and ductless.

A ducted range hood is one that is attached to ducts that go from your kitchen to the outdoors. In other words, when you turn it on, it pulls all the air from your kitchen and carries it through the ductwork that has been installed throughout your home. It will be released outside your home so that you are only left with clean air to breathe.

The problem with a ducted range hood is that not everyone has them. And, let’s be real – installing ductwork throughout your home is a big investment, as well as a time-consuming one. You don’t have to worry about not moving forward with this big project and being stuck with unhealthy air in your kitchen. Instead, you can opt for a ductless range hood.

Ductless range hoods work just as well as ducted hoods, but they don’t need to be vented outside. So, how do they work? It’s simple. Using commercial-grade baffle filters, the dirty air is sucked up into the unit and then filtered and returned to your kitchen – without the toxins.

Both of these range hood options are effective.

Advantages of a Ductless Range Hood

Ductless range hoods that filter and recirculate the air are great options for kitchens that don’t have ductwork already installed or those with inconvenient layouts. Also, they are perfect for condos and apartments. They can be installed on the wall above the range or even underneath cabinets. If you have an island, you can even add a ceiling range hood over the range or cooktop.

Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits that come with a ductless range hood:

-Convenient to install

-Can be installed anywhere in the kitchen without having to make sure it is near pipes or ducts that are vented outside

Baffle filters are easy to clean so that you always have clean air to breathe

-More affordable option when compared to ducted vent hoods

-Can be installed and used in an apartment or condo

-Works well to effectively remove toxins and unhealthy air

-Long-lasting and easy to care for

Boost home value

Limitations of a Ductless Range Hood

It is important to note the limitation of a ductless range hood. While they work beautifully to remove all the carcinogens, toxins, and odors that come from your delicious cooking, there is something that they cannot remove. Heat and humidity, unfortunately, cannot be removed from the kitchen with a ductless range hood. The reason for this is that it works by filtering the air and then recirculating it into the kitchen.

ducted range hood that vents outside will pull that hot, steamy air and carry it straight out of the kitchen. As a result, you are left with cooler air – and allow your AC to not work as hard. But since not all kitchens are equipped to handle a ducted range hood, the ductless option is a great alternative despite this limitation.

Features to Look For in a Ductless Range Hood

There are many different range hoods on the market – especially when it comes to those that don’t need to be vented outside. So, it is important that you know what features are available so you can be sure you are getting the best deal on your investment.

A few key features to look out for include the following:

-LED lighting to illuminate your cooking area

-Quiet operation

-Commercial-style baffle filters (these are easy to clean)

-Push button controls that are easy to operate

-Stainless steel finish (these are easy to clean, too!)

As you embark on your journey to investing in healthy kitchen air for your family, keep these features in mind.

So, do range hoods have to be vented outside? No.

If you do not have ventilation ductwork already built in your kitchen leading outdoors, this can be a large project to take on. But don’t let that deter you from fresh air. Ductless vent hoods work just as well and will give you the results you are looking for. It’s definitely worth the investment, especially when you purchase from THOR Kitchen.

Eating Healthy for Breast Cancer Prevention Month

Eating healthy for breast cancer prevention month

October is Breast Cancer Prevention Month. And according to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women in the U.S., showing up at a rate of 30% (1 in 3) of all new female cancer diagnoses. A few more eye-catching 2022 estimates include: 

-“About 287,850 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women

-About 51,400 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) will be diagnosed

-About 43,250 women will die from breast cancer”

Mammograms and other breast cancer screening methods are important for the early detection of breast cancer. In addition, there are other things you can do to help prevent its occurrence in your life, such as being intentional about what you put in your body.

Try These Foods

Consider adding some of these healthy foods into your diet and recipes during and beyond breast cancer prevention month.

Leafy Greens

You already know that leafy greens are good for you, but you may not have known just how impactful they can be in breast cancer prevention. These vegetables contain carotenoid antioxidants, including beta carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin, folate, and B vitamins. All of these are believed to protect – and fight – breast cancer.

Leafy greens to add to your diet regularly include kale, arugula, spinach, mustard greens, and chard.

Fermented Foods

Foods that have gone through the fermentation process and are full of probiotics seem to reduce the risk of breast cancer, according to many dozens of studies. Plus, they are known to be immune-enhancing, too, which helps the body fight.

Fermented foods include yogurt, kimchi, miso, sauerkraut, and others.

Cruciferous Vegetables

Glucosinolate compounds can be converted into isothiocyanates which are molecules that have the potential to fight cancer. And they are found in veggies like cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower.

Consuming these on a regular basis may reduce your risk of breast cancer.

Beans

There are so many different types of beans and so many things you can do with them. They have a lot of fiber, minerals, and vitamins that are thought to offer protection against cancer. In fact, one study found that women with a high bean intake reduced their risk of breast cancer by as much as 20%. Another study found that it could reduce risk by up to 28%.

Eat more beans!

Fatty Fish

Increased consumption of omega-3 and omega-6 is thought to reduce your chance of breast cancer – maybe even by up to 14%. This has been studied several different times, with results all being the same. Fatty fish also provides you with selenium and antioxidants that seem to protect against cancer.

The fish to consider include sardines, salmon, and mackerel.

Citrus Fruits

These fruits have compounds that may protect against breast cancer, including folate, vitamin c, carotenoids, and certain flavonoid antioxidants. As a result, you get antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Regular consumption of citrus fruits, such as tangerines, oranges, grapefruits, lemons, and limes, may reduce breast cancer by up to 10%, according to some studies.

Berries

Berries are very beneficial for the body, even potentially reducing your risk of certain cancers. They contain antioxidants, such as flavonoids and anthocyanins, that work to minimize cell damage – as well as the spread of cancer cells. Plus, higher fiber intake (in which blueberries are a great source) is thought to lower estrogen receptor negative (ER-) breast cancer, according to one study.

Fruits

We talked about berries and citrus, but now we are referring to peaches, apples, and pears. Fruits like these (and perhaps all fruits) have shown great promise in protecting against breast cancer. Many studies have been done to conclude this.

One study, in particular, shows that two servings of peaches per week could reduce ER- breast cancer risk by up to 41%!

Similar benefits are shown with apples and pears, too. It is all about the antioxidants that inhibit the growth of cancer cells.

Allium Vegetables

A high intake of onions, garlic, and leeks have also been shown to reduce breast cancer risk. They contain organosulfur compounds, flavonoids, and vitamin c – all of which seem to work against cancer.

More research may still need to be done in this category, but so far, the studies and their results are looking positive.

Avoid These Foods

Just as there are foods you should be eating to boost your body’s ability to prevent breast cancer, there are a few foods that you should avoid, too. These have been known to potentially increase your risk. If you cannot remove them entirely from your diet, consider reducing your intake.

Alcohol

Studies show that there may be a link between alcohol use and an increased risk for breast cancer.

Fried Foods

Researchers are finding a common link between large consumption of fried foods and breast cancer diagnosis.

Added Sugars

Added sugars increase inflammation in the body, which allows certain enzymes related to the spread and growth of cancer to be released.

Fast Food

There is nothing good about fast food for your body. Not only does it increase your breast cancer risk, but it also increases your risk for things like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

Processed Meats

Consuming high levels of processed meat, like bacon, lunch meat, and sausage, can increase your risk – a 9% greater chanceaccording to studies.

Refined Carbs

Diets full of refined carbs seem to play a significant role in breast cancer risk.

Eating Better for Breast Cancer Prevention Month

We can’t always control what our bodies do when it comes to illnesses and cancers, but we can control the things that we eat and the way we care for our bodies. Eating foods that have a positive impact on our overall system, as well as avoiding those that could potentially be dangerous, is a simple step we can take. And that means eating more fatty fish and fruits and less fast food and sugar.

Sadly, breast cancer makes its way into the lives of many families in one way or another. And taking steps to prevent that from happening is key. Change the things you consume and always follow up with your screening.

Preventing Rust on Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliances

Preventing rust on stainless steel kitchen appliances

You bring home your beautiful new kitchen appliances and transform your kitchen. Every time you step into the room and turn the light on, you find yourself beaming from ear to ear. The shiny metal is an incredible mixture of class and elegance – and you know you just boosted your home’s value. That is until one day you spot a small area of rust. How did this happen? And how does one prevent rust on stainless steel kitchen appliances in the first place?

It may not be big, but once you spot it, it stands out. And you know it is going to grow if you don’t address it. So, to help you out, we have some ways to prevent rust on your stainless steel kitchen appliances, including that beautiful new stainless steel refrigerator and more!

What Causes Rust on Stainless Steel?

It is a common misconception that stainless steel won’t rust. It may not be as prone to rusting as other types of metal, but it will, nonetheless, rust if given the opportunity. Its protection comes from a layer of chromium found in stainless steel appliances. It acts as a layer of protection against corrosion, keeping moisture and other debris from actually reaching the underlying steel and causing damage.

Unfortunately, this layer of chromium can become damaged and lead to rusting. A couple of the biggest culprits include cleaners and cleaning tools. The use of bleach or other harsh cleansers, for instance, can break down the chromium over time. Even more so if they get trapped in grooves or don’t get wiped away thoroughly. Using abrasive cleaning tools, such as steel brushes or pads, can also cause damage. They can scrub away the protection and easily leave behind scrapes and scratches. And guess what finds its way into the tiny marks caused by cleaning tools? That’s right – harsh cleaners. Corrosion soon follows.

You may think you are caring for your appliances, but all you are really doing is making them susceptible to rust.

Preventing Rust on Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliances

If you’d like to keep your appliances shining like new for years to come, below you will find what you should and should not do.

You should…

+Clean your appliances using mild soap and a soft cloth.

+Always dry your appliance after cleaning it – use a soft, dry cloth.

+Routinely wipe down your stainless steel appliances with a stainless steel cleaner or use mineral oil.

+Always wipe away standing water as soon as possible.

You should not…

-Use harsh cleaners or disinfectants that are abrasive or contain bleach, alcohol, ammonia, or chlorides.

-Use harsh cleaning tools, such as steel wool, scrub pads, or scrub brushes.

-Ever wipe down your appliances using your dish rag or sponge, as it could contain oils from food that may be damaging.

Removing Rust from Stainless Steel Kitchen Appliances

Prevention is the best way to reduce the chance of rust. But, if you find out about the above a little too late, all is not lost. There are ways to remove rust from your stainless steel kitchen appliances. Below are a few you can try.

Bar Keepers Friend

This relatively inexpensive product can be found in any cleaning aisle. It is a powder that you can use to make a paste with a little bit of water. Apply it with a soft cloth to the rusted area. Be sure to rub only with the grain, not against it. You want it to form a paste that you can easily wipe on, so don’t make it too thick or too thin. A quick Google search will give you different measurements for creating this, but it is best to just keep adding a little water until you get the right consistency.

Continue rubbing with a soft cloth until the rust is removed. Then, rinse it off with water and a clean, soft cloth. Dry thoroughly.

Baking Soda

Much like the Bar Keepers Friend, you can simply use baking soda and water. Again, you are trying to create a paste that you can rub in the direction of the grain, so you want to make sure you have a good consistency. Using a soft cloth, continue rubbing the mixture on the rust spot until it disappears.

Rinse with water and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Another chemical-free option involves using 1 tsp of baking soda and 1 tsp of vinegar. Mix together to create a paste. This time, you want to let it sit on the rust spot, so apply it and leave it alone for about 5 minutes.

Using a soft cloth or a soft brush, begin scrubbing the spot in the direction of the grain.

Once the rust is removed, rinse with water and dry with a clean, soft cloth.

Baking Soda and Liquid Dish Soap

Many have found success with this method of cleaning rust from stainless steel appliances. Like the other options, create a paste with baking soda and liquid dish soap. Rub it into the rust stain. Once the rust disappears, rinse with water and dry with a soft cloth.

Salt and Lime

Believe it or not, you can take a shot of tequila and use the salt and lime to clean the rust on your stainless steel appliances. Squeeze a lime over the rusted area and pour on the salt to cover the rusted area. Let it sit for a couple of hours – at least two. Then, using the lime peeling, scrub the area to remove the rust.

Rinse with water and thoroughly dry with a soft cloth.

Cream of Tartar and Lemon Juice

Sticking with the chemical-free theme, we’ve got a mixture of cream of tartar and lemon juice. The ratio is 1 tbsp of cream of tartar to a few drops of lemon juice. Using a soft brush and going with the grain, rub the mixture into the rust stain.

Again, rinse with water and thoroughly dry with a soft cloth.

The Best Solution?

As you can tell, there are many solutions for removing rust from stainless steel appliances. To find the best solution for your rust spot, you may have to try a couple.

Once you have successfully removed the rust, be sure to keep an eye on it as it may appear again one day down the road. When it does, you will know exactly what to do. In the meantime – take steps to prevent your stainless steel appliances from rusting in the first place!

Are Outdoor Kitchens with Pizza Ovens Worth It?

Are outdoor kitchens with pizza ovens worth it?

A few years ago, many people would use their backyard for a hangout spot every now and then. Maybe this included firing up the grill and having a BBQ, maybe not. And not only that but utilizing the backyard for creating outdoor kitchens with pizza ovens certainly wasn’t the deal – why not just order out, right? The outdoor area was seen as an optional space that didn’t get much attention unless the perfect weather just called for it.

That is – until the global pandemic hit.

All it took was for us to go stir crazy in our homes due to quarantine before we decided to revamp outside spaces – and that includes how we use them. While outdoor kitchens have always been a thing, they quickly became a necessity during this time. And still are today.

Transforming your space and taking it to the next level with an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven may sound enticing. But is it worth it?

Increase the Value of Your Home

Outdoor kitchens with pizza ovens can increase your home’s value. And, if you are wondering just how wise of an investment it is, it is not uncommon for the return on investment to be at least 100%. Maybe even double that. In other words, when you sell your property, the sale price of your home will account for the entire cost of the outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven – if not more.

Many homebuyers dream of having a backyard escape – and are often willing to pay more for a home that has one already built in.

What does this mean for you?

Well, investing in an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven will allow you to enjoy all that it brings to your home – and when you decide it is time to move on, you will be reimbursed for your cost, and someone new can enjoy it.

Expand Your Living Space

As we mentioned, living with COVID-19 and all that time spent sheltering in place allowed us to appreciate the outdoors a little bit more. Being able to get out of the house and into a space we enjoyed – while still being safe – was what mattered.

Today, many have a new appreciation for the outdoor areas of our living space. Rather than just allowing it to be a space that is an afterthought, adding an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven, some comfortable seating, maybe some bistro lights, and a speaker for some music can transform the space into something you won’t want to leave. And don’t forget to add a place to eat, too, so you can really make the most of it.

No longer will you be bound by the four walls of your home, but you will have ample space to live and enjoy.

Boost Your Health and Wellness

Fresh air does a body good, doesn’t it? Staying indoors all the time and breathing in recycled air may feel great on a really hot day, but it doesn’t always add vibrancy to your health. Believe it or not, getting outdoors can boost your overall wellness by:

-Improving memory and concentration.

-Reducing stress.

-Restoring the mind.

-Letting creative energy flow.

It pays to invest in your overall well-being. And in this instance, you get all the perks of enjoying an outdoor kitchen while allowing yourself to have better health. It is like a win-win.

Something to Feel Good About

Why even focus on the numbers? Life is short, and sometimes it can feel good just to have something to feel good about. If you decide to invest in an outdoor kitchen with a pizza oven so that you can spend quality time with your family and friends, ease your mind, reduce your stress, and increase your vitamin D consumption from the sun, then just do it!

Having something that makes you happy doesn’t always have to make financial sense. So what if your home’s value doesn’t increase as much as you’d like (though it will) or if you felt you could have made a bigger return investing in something else? If your backyard outdoor kitchen and the surrounding space make you feel good – then that is all that truly matters.
