How to Clean an Electric Stove Top

How to clean an electric stove top

An electric stove top can be a beautiful and eye-catching addition to a kitchen. And no matter how much it is used, cleaning it regularly will make it appear as though it has never been touched. However, not everyone knows how to clean an electric stove top.

The good news is that there is no intricate cleaning technique or even expensive cleaners that you have to buy to make it look so stunning. In fact, most of the supplies are probably already in your house!

Here is everything you need to know on how to clean an electric stove top.

Supplies You Need

Before you can get started on cleaning your electric stove top, it is very important that you have all the right tools. Without them, you could risk damaging the surface of the stovetop. So gather up the following, and then let’s get started.

Baking soda

Vinegar

-Dish soap

-Soft towel

-Sponge

-Warm water

-Glass cleaner

Step 1: Remove Coils and Drip Pans

For those stoves that have coils and drip pans, go ahead and remove them. Use a sponge and warm soapy water to wipe down the coils. Rinse and let dry. Do not submerge coils in water.

As for the drip pans, remove any loose food particles and debris and submerge the drip pans in a sink of soapy water for about 20 minutes or so. Then, remove, rinse, wipe them off, and set them aside. Should any grease or food particles remain stuck, use your sponge to gently remove them. Soak longer if you need to.

Both of these can be placed aside until you finish cleaning the stove top.

Step 2: Create Baking Soda Paste

Create a baking soda paste and apply it to the stove top. This paste can be created using three parts baking soda to one part warm water. Mix until you have the consistency of a paste, and then apply to your stove top.

Let it sit for about 5 minutes. This will give it time to break down any residue or stuck-on food found on your stove.

When the time is up, wipe the stove with a soft towel. Whatever you do, don’t scrub with force or you may risk scratching the stove’s surface.

Step 3: Use Glass Cleaner

Once you have removed all the baking soda, use glass cleaner (or, if preferred, soapy water) and clean the stove top to remove anything left behind – and to make it shine.

Replace your burners and coils if you have them – and you are all done. It is really that easy.

Remove Burn Marks From Glass Stove Top

Burn marks left behind on the stove can be an eyesore for the unit. You want to get rid of them, so your stove can look great once again. Good news – there is a simple fix for that, too. You will create a paste much like you did when cleaning the stove, except this one is going to be a bit stronger.

Mix together two parts vinegar and one part baking soda to create a paste. Because the vinegar is more acidic, the two ingredients will react more with one another and cause a reaction that will work to break up the burn mark.

Do not scrub the marks as you don’t want to risk scratching the top. If you go to wipe away the mixture and you still see it has some work to do, leave it or reapply and let it sit longer. You may find you have to repeat this process a couple of times.

Degreasing an Electric Stove Top

If you have ever tried to wipe off the grease that has been caked on your stove top for some time, then you know the best you can usually do is to smear it. It looks terrible. Thankfully, using the right elixir, you can wipe it clean once and for all.

Turn on the burners for a minute to heat them up just a little bit. Pour a little bit of warm water on the stove, and then add baking soda. Let it sit (with the burners off) for a minute or so. Use a soft cloth to wipe up the water and baking soda.

Next, add dish soap to a soft sponge and gently scrub the area if needed. Wipe it up with a clean, dry towel.

This usually should take just one attempt, but if your grease is piled on thick, you may need to repeat.

Looking For an Electric Stove Top?

Maybe you’ve always admired the look of an electric stove top but thought they were work-intensive to keep them looking so nice. If so, you’re in for a treat. Now that you know how to clean an electric stove top to keep that clean, spotless shine, here’s one you don’t want to miss.

5 Pros of Energy Saving Appliances in the Kitchen

5 pros of energy saving appliances in the kitchen

Many have spent decades trying to make things bigger and better than they were before. And everyone is always on the search for the latest and greatest new product, whether it be for energy saving appliances or those not so energy efficient. Unfortunately, for the latter, we are only in recent years discovering all the damage this may have cost our world.

To compensate, we can all do our part by investing in items that will do the least amount of harm possible – especially those items that are used on a daily basis, such as kitchen appliances, like refrigerators and dishwashers, for example. Energy saving appliances in the kitchen not only help the environment as a whole but also bring you some perks, too. Let’s take a look at a few.

1. Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

To create electricity itself, fossil fuels must be burned. However, this process releases carbon dioxide into the air, and, as a result, it and other greenhouse gases begin to create a layer of insulation that allows the sun’s rays in but doesn’t allow it back out. Thus, this process contributes to global warming and climate change.

By opting for energy saving appliances, you can reduce energy consumption and, in turn, reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

2. Conserve Water Consumption

Like electricity, water use is another thing we need to pay attention to. We need water to live, but we don’t need to take 30-minute hot showers or leave the faucet running on full blast while we brush our teeth. Taking small steps to monitor water usage is a great idea. One way you can do that is by purchasing appliances that use less water and energy than the alternatives.

A dishwasher, for instance, with a smart wash cycle, will only use the amount of water necessary to get the dishes thoroughly clean without going overboard. Not only will it use less energy, but it will use less water, too.

3. Minimize Your Carbon Footprint

The term carbon footprint gets passed around a lot, but did you know that it is actually a representation of the number of carbon compounds (like carbon dioxide from fossil fuels) that come from your house and life? In other words, it is your contribution to the carbon compounds that cause global warming.

The lower the number, the better. You can reduce your carbon footprint by investing in energy-efficient appliances. These units give off fewer emissions into the environment and have much less of an impact on climate change.

4. Save Money

Not only are you helping the environment when you choose to use energy saving appliances in the kitchen, but you also save money, too. Energy-efficient appliances are designed to reduce their energy consumption while still working efficiently (as their name suggests).

Many manufacturers even go the extra mile and create more than just an appliance that runs efficiently, but they also include features that further contribute. For instance, adding LED lighting and LED displays.

Introducing energy saving appliances into your kitchen is a decision you can feel good about. You will use less energy and, in turn, have a lower utility bill.

5. Boost Your Quality of Life

You have the power to make decisions that impact the future – including the purchase of energy saving appliances. Because they are designed with you and the environment in mind, you reap the benefits as they make your life easier. Not only do they work well, are built with convenience in mind, and save you money, but they also are designed well. They require less replacement and less maintenance yet still run strong and efficiently.

What’s more, you also know that you are giving off good to the environment and that it benefits not just you, but everyone in your family. Doing the right thing just feels good.

THOR Kitchen’s Energy Efficient Appliances

So now that you know all the good things that come from energy-efficient appliances, it is time that you learn about a few you could be using in your own home.

It comes equipped with a multiple filtration system that allows optimal performance using less water and energy, as well as a Smart Wash System that uses the perfect amount of water for each wash load.

This stainless steel unit is durable, professional quality, with a touch of softness that fits beautifully in your kitchen.

36-Inch French Door Refrigerator

Model number TRF3601FD, a 36-inch french door refrigerator, is energy-star certified and has many features that contribute to its overall level of efficiency. For instance, showcase LED lighting is not only efficient in itself, but it also allows you to get in and out by being able to see everything clearly. A triple-tech cooling system controls the temperature of each compartment with a separate airflow to boost humidity levels and reduce frost buildup so that it can run most efficiently.

Thanks to the door alarm, you never have to worry about accidentally letting all the cold air leak out of your fridge again.

30-Inch Professional Electric Range

Model number HRE3001, this professional 30-inch electric range comes with powerful features that help you cook your meal with utmost efficiency. It has multiple cooking modes, a true convection fan for even baking, and flexible burners, so you always have just the right amount of heat needed to do your cooking. The large 4.55 cubic foot oven capacity allows you space to cook multiple dishes at once, which reduces the amount of energy needed to cook an entire meal. And finally, add on LED lighting that is energy-efficient in itself, and you can feel good about using this range.

Professional Kitchen Range 101: Styles, Space, and Size

Professional kitchen range 101: Styles, space, and size

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

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

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

The Term Professional Matters

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

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

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

They do come at a cost.

Professional Sizes

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

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

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

Address Ventilation Concerns

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

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

Styles to Choose From

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

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

It is only fitting that we discuss a few top-choice professional kitchen ranges so that you know what you are looking for – and the features you won’t want to miss.

Why You Need a Refrigerator with French Doors

Why you need a refrigerator with french doors

There are some things you want in life – like a mocha latte with three shots of espresso to get through the afternoon slump at work or a backstage pass at your favorite musician’s concert. Then there are those things that you need, like a fancy refrigerator with french doors, which are a little bit different.

Needs can be both big and small. They make everything flow more smoothly and even add real value to your life.

Having the right appliances – such as a refrigerator with french doors – in your life can constitute a need. Here’s why you need one.

Conveniently Designed

A refrigerator with french doors is designed for your convenience. If you think about old-style refrigerators from years ago, the freezer was at the top, requiring you to bend over and break your back to find something in the fridge. And the split side-by-side refrigerators have such tiny spaces on either side that storage in both sections was a challenge.

Both of these popular refrigerators weren’t nearly as user-friendly as a french door model.

A french door refrigerator has a split down the middle where two doors open to show a refrigerator section that is the full width of the unit, providing ample storage space. It is also up top for easy access. The bottom freezer drawers are also the full width of the unit and easily pull out so that all items can be stored and retrieved with ease.

Easy to Organize

Thanks to the way a french door refrigerator opens and how it is modernly designed, they are very easy to organize. Common door storage that can hold gallon-size jugs, adjustable shelving, and more can make the refrigerator easy to keep in order. Unlike other models, everything fits. And any odd-shaped items or those that are big and bulky can all have a place.

Everything is at eye level – even your crisper drawers. That means you can always see exactly what you have, where your leftovers are, and which produce needs to be eaten first, so you don’t end up with anything fuzzy growing. In other words, you are keeping your fridge organized and reducing waste. At that rate, it’s safe to say that having a refrigerator with french doors could save you money.

Create More Space in Your Kitchen

Even if a new french door refrigerator is the same size – or even bigger – than your old refrigerator, you will still be creating more space in your kitchen. How? It’s all in the doors.

Full-width doors on a refrigerator stick out quite a distance when you open them. Their wide swing can be disruptive to the flow of your kitchen. However, french door refrigerators only take up half as much space when you open them. So, you do not have to sacrifice space to have a refrigerator that makes your kitchen feel larger.

Highly Sought Refrigerator

If you are one that likes to have the best of the best – or you like to keep up with the Jones’ – then you need a refrigerator with french doors. They are the most sought-after styles of refrigerators due to their beautiful look and their high level of functionality.

If you purchase the right french door refrigerator (hint: we are referring to the two below), then you end up with a long list of features and perks that can actually take your refrigerator to a whole new level.

Ready to see what we are talking about? Keep reading.

Two Incredible Refrigerators Your Kitchen Needs

Transform Your Backyard with an Outdoor Kitchen Suite

Transform your backyard with an outdoor kitchen suite

Imagine walking into your backyard and feeling as though you have been transported into another world. A tropical escape, serene gardens, or even an Irish pub or tiki bar. Your backyard is an extension of your home – don’t let this space go to waste, why not transform your backyard into something extraordinary?

Your opportunities here are endless once you let your creative side take over. Work your magic and see what incredible space you uncover. But first – there are a few things you need to decide before you transform your backyard with an outdoor kitchen suite.

Wait – What is an Outdoor Kitchen Suite?

An outdoor kitchen is just what it sounds like – a kitchen that is outdoors. No two have to look the same as they are as unique as the kitchen in your home. The idea is to create a space where you feel comfortable and will want to spend time.

Some outdoor kitchens may be designed with practicality and functionality in mind, while others may be focused on social gatherings and entertaining. Some may keep things simple with just a grill to cook with, while others may prefer a grill, a pizza oven, and maybe even a smoker, too.

As we said, you have so many options and ways you can transform your backyard into something that is truly unique – and all yours.

Full or Partial Outdoor Kitchen?

You will want to decide whether you want a full or partial outdoor kitchen. Depending on your space, you may want to decide whether you should opt for a full or a partial outdoor kitchen. For those lacking the space, it may be necessary to forego an outdoor refrigerator or an extra cabinet or sink. Larger spaces allow for a grill, cabinet, sink, refrigerator, pizza oven – and more.

To Build In or Not to Build In?

Deciding on how permanent you want your outdoor backyard kitchen to be is also important. Some create a full kitchen made with built-in cabinets and/or countertops. But it doesn’t have to be that way. You can have a permanent look without being so permanent by using outdoor cabinets along with your appliances. It gives it a seamless look without making it a forever fixture.

A Place to Relax, Eat, and Enjoy

As you focus on the kitchen portion of your backyard transformation, don’t forget to create a place to relax, hang out, eat, and enjoy the company of those around you. This is easy to do when you add comfortable seating, chairs, and even a fire pit if you’d like.

By including this in your outdoor kitchen, you can cook delicious recipes and eat outdoors – without ever having to go back inside. After all, how silly would it be to go outside to cook but then go back inside to eat?

This is the fun part. What will you create? Oh – and don’t forget the bistro lights.

Thor Kitchen’s Outdoor Kitchen Suite

modular outdoor kitchen

As your mind starts turning and trying to decide how you can transform your backyard to get the most out of your space, you will want to check out the outdoor kitchen suite that Thor Kitchen has to offer. This can help you determine the best way to set up the space so that you also have room for eating and socializing. In other words, you know that you need the items in the outdoor kitchen suite – so it makes sense to start there and work out the rest of the design around it.

Thor Kitchen’s modular outdoor kitchen suite features large surface areas and a sleek design. Made of stainless steel, it is durable with a shine that is meant to last even if out in the elements. And, because it is modular, it can be rearranged so that it fits your space and is as functional as possible.

32-Inch Grill

Thor Kitchen’s 32-inch 4-burner gas BBQ grill with rotisserie in stainless steel looks and works beautifully. It is powerful, and with its blue LED knobs, it is a stunning addition to your back patio. Lots of advanced features – including halogen lights to see your food at night – take this grill to the next level.

Grill Cabinet

This stainless steel grill cabinet holds your grill steadily on top without wavering – and it blends together as though it is one unit. The cabinet itself has two storage drawers and a bottom storage cabinet to hold grilling essentials, towels, cleaning supplies, and more.

Sink Cabinet

Having a stainless steel sink cabinet outdoors in your kitchen suite is a great idea. Not only does it reduce the number of times you have to keep running indoors, but it also cuts down on cross-contamination and makes cleanup a breeze. Wash your hands, prep your food, and clean up – do it all outdoors without ever having to make your way back inside.

This sink cabinet allows you to also store items, and it comes with a built-in spice rack for all your favs and a bottle opener, so you have no excuse but to be the chef with a cold one in hand.

Corner Cabinet

The corner cabinet is just another large storage space – and countertop – to add to your suite. You can store anything you need to so that your outdoor kitchen is complete. And the top is a perfect place to prep your food.

Pizza Oven and Cabinet

A pizza oven is a fantastic addition – and there are so many things you can use it for in addition to pizza. It comes with all the necessities and even has another large storage cabinet underneath it.

Decked out in stainless steel, too, it fits perfectly with all the others.

Refrigerator Cabinet

The refrigerator cabinet holds your refrigerator drawer or wine cooler perfectly – and it gives you additional counter space on top to prep your food – or create a buffet for your friends and family.

It is important to note that Thor Kitchen also has additional options available, such as an outdoor refrigerator drawer to store perishable foods, condiments, etc. – or a wine cooler to keep wine at its ultimate temperature or even just store drinks, etc. Both add a lot of conveniences to your outdoor kitchen space.

Are French Door Refrigerators Better?

Are french door refrigerators better?

Refrigerators have been around for decades, but they have changed quite a bit over the years. Each new model is getting a little better than the one before it. The latest – a french door refrigerator – is split down the middle and opens up for easy access to the unit. These refrigerators continue to grow in popularity and have taken up permanent residence in some of the most classy kitchens. So, why does everyone want one? Are french door refrigerators better?

Let’s talk about it.

French Door vs. Side-By-Side

If you are scratching your head wondering what the difference is between a French door refrigerator and the side-by-side refrigerators from years ago, then we’ve got some answers for you.

On a side-by-side, the refrigerator and freezer were separated vertically. The freezer would go from top to bottom, usually in a narrow portion on one side. The refrigerator would get the other side from top to bottom. It may have been a wider space than the freezer, but it still didn’t have a lot of space.

These were common refrigerators, but they were definitely tough to maneuver on grocery day. And the one who was successful at stacking that freezer had to have a high score on Tetris.

Now, the french door refrigerators are different. These have the separation horizontally, with the refrigerator up top and the freezer on the bottom. That way, you have the full width of the unit to work with – and that makes life so much easier. And since both refrigerator doors open, you get a wide view of the entire fridge. This, combined with the freezer drawers, brings a lot more organization, too.

THOR Kitchen’s Refrigerators

Thor Kitchen is known for making pro-style, high-quality products – and their refrigerators are no exception. These units are made with shiny stainless steel that is both beautiful in the kitchen and also very durable to stand the test of time. It is even easier to keep clean, so your kitchen will always look fresh.

Let’s take a look at two of their models of French Door refrigerators and all the features they have to offer. Thor Kitchen does not disappoint.

36-Inch Professional French Door Refrigerator

THOR’s 36-inch professional french door refrigerator, model number HRF3601F, has not one, but two freezer drawers that are the full width of the unit. And with the french door refrigerator section, you can see inside your fridge from every angle. There will be no lost leftovers here!

Plus, it comes with some pretty awesome features, too, including:

Storage Space: There is ample storage space in this refrigerator – 20.7 cubic feet, to be exact. And it is flexible so that it can fit all those big or odd-shaped items you have.

Showcase LED Lighting: Sometimes, it can be tough to find things in the refrigerator, especially after grocery day. Showcase LED lighting is positioned throughout the refrigerator so that you have clear visibility from every angle.

Dual Cooling System: Having good humidity throughout your refrigerator is important to keep food healthy and to avoid freezer burn. With Thor Kitchen’s dual cooling system, this can be achieved.

Automatic Ice Maker: An automatic ice maker means you will always have ice cold drinks whenever you want them. Get ice on-demand!

Door Storage: With gallon door storage, you have space for those bulky gallons of water, milk, and juice without taking up shelving space. This also means you don’t have to worry about them blocking your sight too.

Door Alarm: Leaving the refrigerator or freezer door open can leave you with a huge loss in spoiled food. A door alarm will alert you when the doors have been left open so that you can promptly shut them!

Adjustable Racks and Shelves: For optimal organization, this french door refrigerator comes with adjustable racks and shelves. They are retractable too, giving you many different configurations so that you can fit any item with ease.

How to Modernize Your Kitchen in 8 Steps

How to modernize your kitchen in 8 steps

The kitchen is the heart of your home, and you likely spend a lot of time there cooking and gathering yummy recipes. Deciding how to modernize your kitchen will leave you with a space you feel comfortable in – and one that you truly enjoy. It also brings some greater amenities to it and an increased home value as well.

There are many steps you can take to modernize your kitchen. Take one, take them all – it’s up to you. Find what works and create a kitchen you will love to spend time in.

Check out these eight steps on how to modernize your kitchen.

1. Look at the Bigger Perspective

Before deciding the steps you will take to revamp your kitchen, take a look at your kitchen as a whole. What is it that you genuinely like about the space? What is it that absolutely needs to go? What would you like to see changed? What colors or textures do you see in your modern kitchen?

It doesn’t matter how much time you spend in the kitchen, there is a good chance you never think about it from a modernizing perspective while you are making your infamous chicken cacciatore recipe. So take some time to sit back and look at your kitchen. Try to visualize the kitchen you want and the changes you’d need to make to create the look.

If you aren’t sure where to start, we’ve got some ideas.

2. Change Your Flooring

Changing your flooring may not seem like it is too high on the to-do list when it comes to modernizing your kitchen, but the floor can make a huge difference. When you walk into a room, your eyes may not be pointed to the ground, but the floor lifts them up even further.

Kitchens drab with an old vinyl or linoleum flooring, for instance, should have been left decades ago. Wood floors, tile, stone – anything like this is more timeless and much more modern. These will last longer, will totally transform the space, and will increase the value of your home.

3. Switch to Stainless Steel Appliances

Another modern and timeless addition to your kitchen is stainless steel appliances. Your refrigeratorrange, cooktop, dishwasher, range hood, and more can all be swapped out for stainless steel appliances. Not only are they bright, classy, and elegant, but they are also very durable, dependable, and energy-efficient.

When you invest in a stainless steel appliance suite, you have beautifully matching appliances that can instantly modernize your kitchen. In fact, it may be all you need to transform the space and boost the modern feel.

Stainless steel appliances by Thor Kitchen can give you pro-style durability. They are easy to maintain and keep clean – and they also allow you to reduce your carbon footprint. In other words, they are a great step in the right direction on so many levels.

4. Create an Open Space Up High

You know those cupboards way up high that you can’t ever reach? Why not get rid of them and free up the space? These old, small, barely-usable cabinets are outdated. But you can bring them to life and add some modern flair to your kitchen by removing them altogether. Depending on the cabinets, you may be able to just remove the doors, sand them down, and repaint them. Or, remove them entirely and replace them with new open shelving with strip lighting.

Simply having an open space up high can open up the kitchen and make it look more modern.

5. Paint Your Cabinetry

If your kitchen cabinets are outdated and really putting a damper on the modern look you are going for, paint can work wonders. It helps to create a new space from an old one in order to give your kitchen a modern feel. There is no need to take it out and replace it – just paint it.

What color? That’s entirely up to you, but for a modern look, you may want to consider shades of white, blue, or even black. You won’t even recognize them when you are done.

6. Modernize Your Countertops

If your kitchen is very old, then there is a good chance it probably has outdated countertops, too. This can really kill the space when you are trying to give your kitchen a modern makeover. They make up a large portion of the kitchen, and they are very visible.

Consider looking into options to upgrade your countertops. This may include natural stone, marble, granite, resin, and more. Some are more costly than others, of course, but there is a countertop for every budget. Plus, when you think about the value it is adding to your home, the purchase just makes sense.

7. Add Unique Lighting

Lighting is usually an afterthought in kitchens, but it shouldn’t be. You need to see when cooking – so you need something bright. Does that mean it can be an unsightly option as long as it’s bright? No way.

Invest in new lighting options. Consider something unique that will give you versatility and ambiance. You may even find a lighting source that acts as a centerpiece in the kitchen. Recessed lighting, pendant lighting, and illumination under the cabinets are all part of modern lighting sources.

8. Small Touches With Big Impact

Finally, there are some small touches you can add to your kitchen that will make a big impact. This could be a pop in color, such as with a picture or a vase. Or, a colorful backsplash that will stand out. It may even be in the canisters or utensil holders you use. Greenery, whether plants or herbs, also give the space a bit of a more modern look. Display an heirloom, light up your wine collection in a wine cooler, or remove curtains and let the outdoors shine in.

All of these ideas – the small touches, stainless steel appliances, and all the other ideas listed above – will transform a kitchen space into an upgraded modern version of itself that you are sure to love.

How to Prepare a Grill for Summertime Cookin’

How to prepare a grill for summertime cookin

Summertime is here! This is the time for outdoor everything, including cooking scrumptious recipes. As social calendars fill up with all sorts of outdoor fun, you may decide to partake and host a little BBQ get-together. If so, you better make sure your grill is in working order–or at least quickly learn how to prepare a grill for a great time! And, let’s face it – there are few things worse than having a backyard of friends and family looking forward to some grilled burgers and dogs while your grill won’t light.

How to Prepare a Grill this Summer

Follow these four simple steps to ensure that your grill is fully prepared for summertime cookin’.

Step One: Cleaning the Grill

Don’t think for one second that you can ignore this step if you have had your grill covered over the last several months. It has been subjected to all sorts of outdoor elements, not to mention a few possible living creatures too. That means it is time to clean the grill.

To get this job done, you will want to gather a few items you have around your home. You don’t need to go out and purchase a special grill cleaner. Simply grab a couple of towels (choose old ones as they will get dirty), a scrubbing/cleaning brush, and a bucket of soapy water. If you have a degreaser cleaning solution, you can grab that, too, but you do not need to go out and get some if you don’t.

Once you have everything together, the first thing you want to do is take out your grates and scrub them with your brush and soapy water. For seasoned cast-iron grates, you will want to oil them before placing them back on the grill.

Special note: Never use oven cleaner to try and clean your grill. This can damage it, doing much more harm than good.

Step Two: Clean Deeper

Set your clean grates aside and remove your grill plates (or heat tamers), and clean them up using your soapy water solution. Then look for areas of grease or debris build-up. Leaving this alone can cause hot spots and flare-ups while you are cooking, so it is always a good idea to remove it.

Take a close look at the inside areas within your grill and make sure everything is still connected and that it looks good. If something doesn’t appear right – now is the time to investigate it further before you decide to light the grill. Be sure to check all hoses, the gas connection, the regulator, knobs, and so forth. When you think it is good to go, try the ignitor to ensure the grill lights.

Finally, clean up the outside of the grill to keep it looking nice. Here, too, you will use your soapy water solution and towels to clean it up. If necessary, use your degreaser. Though, the idea is to leave your stainless steel grill with a fantastic shine rather than a bunch of ugly smudges.

Step Three: Clear the Venturi Tube

The venturi tube is the tube that runs from the burner to the control valves. It is where the air mixes with gas that is needed to use the grill. Unfortunately, this line can get obstructed, and if that happens, it could be dangerous.

These tubes need to be open to gather air, but they may or may not have a protective screen on them. What happens is that bugs and debris can pile up in this and block the flow of gas. To prevent this from happening, clear the tube using a venturi tube brush that you can buy, or use a suitable length of wire as a DIY tool that you can place in the tube and wiggle around.

This is a very important step in maintaining your grill.

Step Four: Maintenance

Once you clean your grill for the season, keep it clean by taking care of it as you go. Once you are done cooking, and the grill has cooled, clean off the grates, remove any debris, and wipe down the grill. Doing this each time can keep it running well and leave you with less work to do.

Need a New Grill?

Stop for a minute and think about your summer without a grill. Imagine not being able to head outdoors to cook up some grub, smell the grill cookin’ while sipping a cold one with your friends, or being able to make memories with some of your favorite people while enjoying some freshly grilled foods. This just doesn’t sound like summer at all.

Who wants to live that way? Certainly not you. So, if you do not currently have a grill or you aren’t sure whether or not yours is up for the challenge of summertime grillin’ this year, perhaps it is time to purchase a new one.

Thor Kitchen has a wonderful outdoor 32-inch 4-burner gas stainless steel grill that will get you through this summer and many more down the road. Here’s a closer look at its amazing features:

-A built-in grill that sits upon a grill cabinet

-The choice between propane and natural gas

-Halogen lights inside so you can cook after dark with ease

-LED knob lights in brilliant blue

-Four burners

-Infrared rotisserie burner

-Easy-moving

-Easy to maintain and keep clean

6 Delicious BBQ Ideas for 4th of July

6 delicious BBQ ideas for 4th of July

Summertime has been off to a great start, and we are quickly rollin’ up on the 4th of July – so start making those plans. It is time to get your friends and family together, fire up that stainless steel grill, pop open a cold one, and enjoy the holiday with some good old bbq ideas for 4th of July!

But wait – you need food. What are you going to grub on before the sky lights up with fireworks?

You could spend your 4th celebrating with the plain old hot dogs and burgers – but those are for rookies. Anyone who knows anything about throwing a BBQ and playing grill master (that’s you) knows that you have to go above and beyond to make mouths water. So why not choose something a little zestier this fourth of July?

Try these six delicious BBQ ideas for the 4th of July.

Main Dishes

Let these main dishes steal the show this weekend. They are a little familiar, but with a little flair, too. You and your guests may just be surprised how adding a few different ingredients together can create something so incredible. Beware: you are not likely to have any leftovers.

1. Smoked Brisket

An outdoor-cooking favorite, smoked brisket is a bbq treat. It may be a long process, but it is so worth the wait.

The key to good brisket is the perfect rub mixture – which is a combination of paprika, cumin, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, white sugar, onion powder, chili powder, brown sugar, and cayenne pepper. This mixture is rubbed into the brisket and is refrigerated for 24 hours before being put on the grill and smoked at a temperature between 220 and 230 degrees Fahrenheit.

Be patient – it could take a while. You are looking to reach a temperature of 165 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit inside.

Sit back and wait – you will see the crowd fight each other to delight in this tender meat.

2. Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs

Sure, we said we were leaving the hot dogs to the rookies, but this is not your ordinary hot dog. In fact, it is a delightful spin on a classic BBQ hot dog. Start off by wrapping each hot dog with bacon. Simply add this to a hot fryer or place it on the grill until the bacon is crispy.

In a large bowl, combine all the colorful toppings like avocado, onion, tomato, jalapeno, and lime juice together with a dash of salt. Top and serve immediately. Don’t forget to add some condiments like mayo and cilantro, too.

3. Tequila Lime Chicken

Grilled chicken is always good. Adding some tequila lime flavor to it will keep your guests coming back for more and more.

To make this recipe, combine some tequila, lime juice, orange juice, chili powder, jalapeno pepper, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and mix it all up.

Then add your chicken breasts to the bowl and refrigerate overnight to get all the good flavors absorbed.

The next step to ensuring your chicken is on point is to make sure the racks on the grill are oiled properly. This is a surefire way to keep your chicken from sticking to the racks. The total cook time on your chicken, until cooked through, is roughly 15 minutes total. Remove from the grill to the plate and serve hot or at room temperature. Oh yeah.

Desserts You Won’t Want to Miss

You can’t grill out on the 4th of July and let all your BBQ guests stop eating after lunch/dinner. You need dessert, or else the meal won’t feel complete. And we’ve got a couple of patriotic sweets everyone will enjoy indulging in.

4. Red, White, and Blue Trifle

This is a cool summer treat with a patriotic look. And there is no baking required.

This trifle is layered with pound cake and fruit that is best served in a glass bowl for its picturesque look to shine through – the red, white, and blue colors.

First, you want to mix and combine the cream cheese and granulated sugar until smooth. Slowly add the heavy cream and vanilla and mix until combined. You want to whisk until soft peaks form, and the mix is easy to dollop.

Now the fun part begins – the layering process. In a large trifle dish or glass dish, place a layer of cake cubes. Top that with the blueberries and blackberries, and one-half of the whipped cream. Next, you want to add the strawberries. Repeat this process with the cake and cream layers and top with the remaining berries. You can serve it immediately, or you can make it in advance and store it for up to 24 hours in the refrigerator.

So cool. So refreshing.

5. Homemade Classic Cherries Jubilee Recipe

Another cool and refreshing 4th of July dessert is cherries jubilee. A liquor-filled sauce that tops some ice cream – can you think of a better combination?

To make this treat, you will need some sweet cherries, cherry liquor, brandy, lemon juice, sugar, and vanilla bean ice cream. Liquor-soaked cherries are heated with the other ingredients to create a deliciously flaming sauce.

Top your bowl of vanilla bean ice cream with the concoction. It is a fantastic combination.

6. 4th of July Jell-O-Shots

These patriotic shots will be the talk of the party. And are sure to bring a good time. Simply mix vodka and three different gelatins, red, white, and blue. Though, you will want to prep these ahead of time in order to pull off the triple-layer look. The total time for these is about 6 hours, as each layer must be set before placing the next layer. On the final layer, you can just let the batch chill overnight. Prepare in advance, and you are good to go for the celebrations.

Happy 4th of July from THOR Kitchen

The fourth of July is always a fun time outdoors with friends and family. No matter how you decide to spend your day, make it taste good with some of these BBQ ideas for 4th of July! Lookout – between the brisket, the trifle, and the jello shots – you may end up being the permanent BBQ host for future holidays.

From the team at THOR Kitchen, have a safe and happy fourth of July!

5 Fabulous Outdoor Kitchen Ideas

5 fabulous outdoor kitchen ideas

This time of year, we find ourselves outdoors more than we are indoors. And why not? The weather is beautiful with lots of sunshine and warmth. And the longer days mean that eating dinner and entertaining outdoors just becomes natural. So, in preparation for summer shenanigans, get-togethers, and everything in between, now is a great time to try out some new outdoor kitchen ideas. Just like your indoor kitchen appliances, an outdoor kitchen comes with many benefits:

-Extends your living and entertaining space

-Keeps smells outdoors

Lowers your energy bill

-Provides convenience when hanging out outdoors

-Adds value to the home

And that is just to name a few. So, if you would like to add an outdoor kitchen to your space, but you don’t know where to start, keep reading. We’ve got five fabulous outdoor kitchen ideas to help you get started.

What’s Included in an Outdoor Kitchen?

No longer does an outdoor kitchen include just a grill. Or even a grill and a small table. And, while there is no set checklist for an outdoor kitchen that you have to have in order to call it an outdoor kitchen, the idea is to create a kitchen (yes, much like your indoor kitchen) but outside. Instead of a range, you have a grill. But you need countertops and storage space. You will also benefit greatly from a sink and a refrigerator, too.

Having this in a designated area in your backyard can make it feel more like an outdoor kitchen. You can choose the size of the space, the layout, and whether or not you want to add an island based on the space you have. But one thing you do need is an entertainment space to go alongside it. After all, what good is an outdoor kitchen if you can’t enjoy the meal under the stars? Create a space to have drinks, food, and fun all right in your backyard.

Keep in mind that it is a good idea to extend your interior design into your outdoors so that it flows smoothly and beautifully.

Thor Kitchen’s Outdoor Kitchen Suite

When you have an idea that will take your backyard to new heights, Thor Kitchen’s outdoor kitchen suite is just what you need to pull the look together. If you are looking for a combination of classy and elegance topped with durability and functionality, look no further. 

 This kitchen suite comes with several key pieces, including: 

Gas BBQ Grill:

A 32-inch 4-burner gas grill with rotisserie can be there for you when cooking any meal. This stainless steel grill has stellar LED-lit knobs, halogen lights (much-needed for nighttime grilling), easy moving, and the ability to use either propane or natural gas. It sits perfectly on an outdoor kitchen BBQ grill cabinet with its two storage drawers and bottom storage cabinet.

Outdoor Kitchen Sink Cabinet:

Having a sink in your outdoor kitchen isn’t mandatory, but it sure is convenient. Whether you are prepping food, washing dishes, or just looking for a place to wash your hands, this stainless steel kitchen sink cabinet with storage space comes in handy.

Pizza Oven and Cabinet:

Why? Well, why not? If you have never cooked a pizza (or anything, for that matter) in a pizza oven, then you are in for a real treat. This stainless steel wood-burning pizza oven blends in well with the other pieces of this suite while delivering a delicious pie every time. It also comes with storage so that you can keep all your pizza utensils organized.

24 Inch Indoor/Outdoor Refrigerator:

As a potential add-on to the suite, having a refrigerator can be incredibly beneficial to your outdoor kitchen. Not only does it make it convenient for cold drinks, but it is great for storing condiments, spreads, or anything you may need for cooking. Perhaps a 46-bottle wine cooler may be more suitable for your needs?

All of these items are meant to stand up to outdoor weather conditions and continue to look magnificent any day of the year.

Five Outdoor Kitchen Ideas to Try

Ready to enjoy life and make some lifelong memories? Let’s take a look at some kitchen ideas that can incorporate this kitchen suite and make it your own. 

1. Modern Outdoor Kitchen

For those who don’t have a lot of extra space, but are looking to create a kitchen outdoors, a simple wood-paneled island will work. This can be built next to or around your kitchen suite, bringing you a designated cooking area as well as a prep area, too. 

The modern look is in the wood paneling paired with a stone countertop and a stainless steel grill, cabinet, sink, etc.

2. Patio Dining – and Relaxing

What if you could turn your backyard into a dining and relaxation space? It can be the ultimate hangout spot. Add your kitchen appliances and countertops, but don’t stop there. You can have a seating area, a dining table, a fireplace, a television, and the like. Make it cozy as if you were relaxing in your living room watching the game. 

3. An Outdoor Bar

Along with your grill, why not build up your countertop and turn it into a bar? Add some nice barstools and use a wine cooler to store your drinks. You can decorate your bar any way you want. You can create a tropical It’s 5 o’clock somewhere vibe, turn it into an Irish pub, or leave it a modern, sleek space. 

4. Contemporary Outdoor Dining

To create a contemporary space, you can combine the shiny, sleek look of the stainless steel appliances with neutral pavers. Add some pizazz with a backsplash behind the grill. A stone island can seal the deal. 

Be sure to extend the look into the dining area, too, so that it remains uniform. 

5. Don’t Forget the Must-Haves

When designing the ultimate outdoor kitchen, you cannot forget to include the must-haves, such as: 

-Lighting

-Space to move around freely

-Comfortable seating

-Overhead covering (at least partial)

-Fireplace or heaters to extend the use of the space

-Entertainment, such as a tv or music/speakers
