Investing In Better Appliances

When our dishwasher sparked a major flood in our home, we realized it might be wise to invest in better kitchen appliances. Unfortunately, we had no idea where to start. We started shopping around, but we were frustrated with the selection because we didn't understand the need for some of the features. After a lot of research, we were able to track down appliances that would fit into our kitchen, improve the appearance, and work well for our needs. I wanted to create a website for other people who might be in the market for home appliances sometime soon.

What To Look For In Kitchen Appliances

by Julia Wood

Buying kitchen appliances is one of the priciest investments you will ever make for your home. When buying high end pieces, you want to make sure that you choose appliances you know you will love. Here are things you should look for in a high-end stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator so you can be confident in your options.


When shopping for a stove, range space is one of the first things you should look for. You want a range that will feature heating elements for griddles as well as traditional pans to make cooking easier. When comparing high-end stoves, check the space between the burners to ensure that you can cook with two large pots at the same time without handles bumping into one another.

Another feature you desire in a high-end stove is quick cooling time when the stove top has been turned off. The right stove should have an indicator light that tells you the stove is still hot or warm to prevent accidental burning when it's been recently turned off.


A high-end refrigerator should feature many shelves to house all your cold items. Many high-end fridges feature egg-shaped shelving to keep eggs in place and bottle holders so you can keep beer and wine cold without taking up space.

The freezer portion of any high-end refrigerator should be roomy and easy to access. Many styles of refrigerators now have the freezer in the bottom portion of the fridge with a foot-activated handle to make putting away groceries much easier.


Dishwashers can use a lot of energy when in use, which can be inconvenient. Remedy this by purchasing a high-end model that uses less water per cycle so it is more environmentally sound.

If you have a smaller kitchen and are worried about space, then consider buying a miniature style that will take up less square footage than the larger, 24-inch styles do. You can buy a smaller dishwasher that is reduced to 18 inches to allow you to save space in your kitchen area without compromising quality.

Buying high-end kitchen appliances is a fun endeavor when you know what to look for in your dishwasher, refrigerator, and stove. Look for key safety features in a stove, ease of storage in a refrigerator, and energy savings in a dishwasher, and you can make purchases that you will be happy with for as long as your appliances last.
