by Bennett Bottorff

Whether you find yourself as a busy parent juggling the responsibilities of three children, a fresh homeowner setting up your dream kitchen, or an empty nester embarking on a new chapter, the process of choosing the perfect appliances for your Seattle kitchen can often induce stress because of the challenge of selecting the right appliances based on an array of different features and benefits. To alleviate this burden, we have consulted our team of kitchen appliance experts, our clients, who have shared their preferred features. Their top priorities were user-friendly functionality, effortless cleaning, safety measures, and whisper-quiet operation. Considering these recommendations, we have thoughtfully curated a selection of kitchen appliances endorsed by our clients to assist you in creating everyone's new favorite room in your home.

Drawer Dishwashers

A peaceful kitchen is essential to any household, as it often serves as the backdrop for memorable conversations with family and friends. When choosing a dishwasher, don't overlook the ultra-quiet Dishwasher Drawers. No one wants to speak over a 62-decibel dishwasher that could be mistaken for a vacuum cleaner. Dishwasher drawers often come with enhanced insulation and advanced noise reduction technology, resulting in quieter operation than traditional dishwashers. By opting for a drawer dishwasher with a decibel rating of 40, you can run it any time of the day without interruptions, ensuring your kitchen remains a hub for socialization.

Dishwasher drawers have separate compartments or "drawers" that can operate independently and are specifically designed to fit seamlessly into your kitchen cabinets. This design allows you to run smaller loads or different cycles simultaneously, providing greater flexibility. Additionally, slide-out drawers make loading and unloading your dishes so simple that anyone in your family can do it. Dishwasher Drawers are an excellent choice if you are looking for convenience without sacrificing design or function!

Easy-to Clean Refrigerators

If you have kids in the house, spills are bound to happen. That's why a refrigerator that offers easy cleaning will be your saving grace. No one wants the hassle of scrubbing the inside of a sticky fridge, especially when the source of the spill is a mystery. To avoid this inconvenience, select a refrigerator with removable shelves and drawers that can quickly be loaded into your dishwasher.

What about the outside of the refrigerator, you ask? Our clients recommend refrigerators with a matte, stainless-steel, or fingerprint-resistant finish that will keep your kitchen looking pristine, even with minimal effort, even with potentially sticky children.

An easily cleanable refrigerator not only saves you valuable time but also guarantees the freshness of your food and the overall cleanliness of your refrigerator.

Induction Cooktops

From style to safety, induction cooktops have rapidly gained popularity in the market in recent years, thanks to the benefits our clients appreciate the most. These benefits include a cool to touch cooking surfaces, precision temperature controls, easy-to-clean, safety features, and energy-saving abilities. Another notable feature of induction cooktops that all our clients appreciate is their remarkable cooking speed, capable of boiling water in 2 minutes or less, compared to 5-8 minutes on a traditional stove. They achieve this by utilizing electromagnetic fields that provide direct and precise temperature control for heating cookware.

Moreover, induction cooktops are designed with safety in mind, making them exceptionally safe for use around children. The cooktop surface does not get as hot due to the incorporation of cookware sensor technology, ensuring that curious little fingers are kept out of harm's way.

Horizontal Wall Oven

 

Don’t overlook horizontal wall ovens during your selection process, as they offer advanced safety features that protect the well-being of you, your loved ones, and your newly renovated kitchen. The key advantage of horizontal wall ovens lies in their unique side-to-side opening mechanism, granting complete accessibility to the oven without the need to lean over a hot door. This eliminates the risk of burns when handling a Thanksgiving turkey or other large dishes. Moreover, horizontal wall ovens offer additional benefits such as automatic shutoff, a lockout function, and a cool-touch door, further enhancing safety and convenience.
