3 Essential Kitchen Innovations for Busy Households

October 12, 2017

We all want to provide home cooked meals for our family, but with practices, meetings and crazy, hectic schedules, how is it even possible?  Most popular restaurants now offer curbside pick up to cater to our busy households…but as much as we like it, that can get expensive!  Fortunately, there are some amazing appliance technologies designed to cut down on cooking times and make you the family hero .  Some of these appliances are the best kept secrets that you can find in your local dealer’s showroom…but they deserve to be shared!

Frozen Bake Technology

The Whirlpool brand has introduced an innovative cooking feature on many of their new ranges & ovens that reduces cooking time of frozen foods up to 31% by eliminating the need to pre-heat the oven!  This is great for pizzas, lasagnas, nuggets, fries, pies & other entrees that most everyone loves.  Simply input the package directions and let the Whirlpool technology start customizing the recipe times for you.  In addition to Frozen Bake, many models also feature convection cooking options for more even cooking and faster baking times, plus Keep Warm settings so dinner can be held inside at the perfect serving temperature until everyone can sit down at the table.   Shop Frozen Bake models here on our site.

Advantium Speedcook Oven

Seriously, the Advantium speedcook ovens from GE Appliances might be the appliance industry’s best kept secret!  Advantium technology, which has been around for over 15 years now, harnesses the power of light and combines it with microwave energy and convected air to cook 2x – 8x faster than a conventional oven.  Halogen lights produce radiant heat above and below foods while a burst of microwave energy is added, which results in foods that are browned and evenly cooked…with all the natural moisture and flavors preserved.  With over 175 pre-programmed recipes built-in, preparing dinner, appetizers or dessert is as easy as scrolling through the dial, finding the food type and pressing start.   Advantium technology is available in Over the Range Microwaves (both 120v and 240v) for easy upgrades, as well as built-in versions.    Explore the Advantium models on our site here.

foods because the application of steam re-hydrates foods that have lost initial moisture.  We’ve all microwaved Chinese take-out the next day and tasted the dried out results, but steam restores it to the same quality as the night before.   While reheating is a great benefit, steam ovens quickly preheat and create perfectly browned roasts, delicious casseroles, babyback ribs and even difficult items like Beef Wellington.   Built-in recipes allow you to easily scroll to the food category you want and select the size of your entree, then let the sensors do the work.  While fancy, guest impressing recipes are a great benefit, these ovens can even bake fresh & frozen pizzas with perfect results.  With the Slow Roast mode of Wolf models, you tell the oven what time you want your Beef Tenderloin to finish and what doneness level you prefer and the oven customizes the cooking to finish at the precise time.  Perfect for company coming over at 6pm, but letting you be flexible to run errands or take care of other preparations!  These premium steam ovens have quickly become a “must have” in the kitchen upgrade plans of today’s busy households!  Imagine preparing fish on one rack, rice on another and your favorite vegetables (okay, maybe not the kid’s favorite) on the 3rd rack.  You can feel joy about preparing your family a delicious, healthy dinner…while knowing you can also steam some hot dogs to perfection at lunch the next day for a real crowd pleaser.  While most of the these steam ovens are a similar 24″-30″ size and designed as a second oven in your kitchen, they are a perfect pair for matching full size ovens.  Also, new wall ovens from Samsung feature steam assist for optimized cooking results, creating the best of both worlds.  The best thing about the steam ovens we carry is that they do not require special plumbing for installation.  All feature canisters that are easily refilled with tap water when needed.  Shop steam ovens and ovens featuring steam cooking on our site here.
