Kitchen Appliance

Kitchen Appliance Innovations Is your dishwasher dripping? Are you ready for a remodel? We asked Corridor experts about the latest options in kitchen appliances. Smart Kitchens You’ve heard of smart refrigerators, but soon the whole kitchen will be Wi-Fi-enabled. According to Craig Knapp of Home Appliance Center in Cedar Rapids, there will be microwaves that scan frozen meals and automatically cook them to perfection. There are already dishwashers that can help track and order dishwashing tabs. Black Stainless The new color in town is black stainless with a smudge-proof option, while black slate offers a matte finish. Knapp says sleek black metallic dishwashers have been best sellers at Home Appliance Center. Induction Cooking Knapp says induction cooking, in which the cooking vessel is heated rather than the cooking surface, is gaining traction. “You can boil water faster, but you can simmer with it, too. It only heats the metal pan.” Third Rack According to Steve Langridge of Slager Appliance in Iowa City, certain dishwashers feature a third upper rack for utensils and silverware. “The dividers in this tray keep the spoons from spooning, and it can be removed to make room for large items,” he said. A drawer storing utensils and the pantry’s rustic barn board door are highlights of the Wunderlich kitchen. Door in Door Langridge notes that door-in-door features are popular for family refrigerators because they make it easy for kids to access beverages without opening the whole door. Adults appreciate the coffee brewing option in the door that is available at Slager Appliance. Compiled by Ruth Paarman 8 LURE SPRING 2018
