Dishwashers can last ten years or more.

To extend the lifespan of your dishwasher, you will need to give it proper maintenance and care. Here are some tips to help you get the maximum use out of your dishwasher.

Frequency of Use

Most households run their dishwasher an average of five times per week. The less frequently you use your dishwasher, the fewer repairs, and the longer it will last. To prolong the life of your dishwasher, do not run it until it is full. By running the dishwasher when full, you will also conserve water.

If you love to entertain, you may be considering adding an ice maker to your indoor or outdoor space.

Each type of ice maker has multiple benefits. Today we are discussing ice makers to help you make an informed purchase.

Indoor Ice Makers

Indoor ice makers are available in a variety of styles; freestanding, countertop, and built-in. Smaller, compact, portable ice makers can be stored and used on a countertop, bar, or table. They are designed for freestanding use and should not be recessed into or under cabinets to ensure they will operate efficiently. Compact ice makers produce a smaller amount of ice, about 25 lbs per day, with a storage capacity of less than 2 pounds. If you only host small gatherings with a few guests, this type of ice maker may be sufficient. For serious entertainers, a larger ice maker built into cabinetry is a great option. The Brama Indoor Automatic Ice Maker (pictured above) can produce up to 50 lbs of ice per day while storing up to 25 lbs. It has a reversible door swing, which means it can be installed side-by-side with another appliance such as a beverage cooler. There are ice setting options that allow you to switch between large and small sizes --- imagine larger ice cubes to pair with spirits and smaller ice cubes for your iced latte. A control panel is built into the unit, so you have full control over ice production. Since indoor ice makers are designed for indoor use only, they should not be used outdoors where they may be exposed to harsh elements and wide temperature swings.

Every time you host a party, someone will inevitably need to make a trip to the store to buy ice.

Carrying those large bags of ice from the store to the car, from the car to the freezer, and then from the freezer to an ice bucket, is never fun. Not to mention, the ice can become hard and a pick may be required to break up large pieces into smaller ones. Save yourself a lot of time and effort and invest in an ice maker. Ice makers are not just practical for entertaining – they are perfect for busy families who regularly uses ice for their coffee, juice, smoothies, and more. Here’s what to look for when shopping for an ice maker.

Are Wine Fridges Noisy?

4/14/2021 1:01 PM

As with any major appliance, a wine refrigerator will make a certain amount of noise when in operation.

A wine refrigerator will operate at around 35 to 45 dB (decibels). For comparison, a kitchen refrigerator can be as loud as 47 dB, and a dishwasher will operate between 46 to 60 decibels. How loud your wine refrigerator is dependent mainly on a few different factors: ambient temperature, proper installation, and whether or not it has a thermoelectric or compressor cooling system.

A wine refrigerator can be the best environment for wine.

A wine cooler or wine fridge is an appliance that can maintain a steady temperature specifically for the storage of wine. A consistent temperature of 55°F is essential because the storage temperature can significantly affect the flavors and aromas of the wine. Both storage and serving temperature can impact the wine drinking experience overall. Since we know that wine prefers a cool temperature, how cold is too cold?
