Cooking – Ranges

cooking

cooking range or stove is an essential item in any kitchen, able to bring simple dishes and exciting recipes to life with ease. Cooking ranges come in a variety of styles, sizes, and fuel types, from gas ranges to electric ranges, duel fuel ranges, and gas freestanding ranges. If you’re looking for power and heat in your new cooking range for a great value, you should consider a gas range.

Gas ranges use open flames as a heat source, and feature easily adjustable nobs that provide exceptional control over cooking temperature. A gas stove can heat up and cool down with ease, giving you the flexibility you need in the kitchen. You can easily switch between high temperature and low temperatures, providing more control than you might get from an electric range.

Most importantly, gas ranges tend to be more efficient and cost-effective than other options. For great value without a sacrifice in quality, you’ll definitely want to consider a gas range.

Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center offers the most popular gas ranges from leading brands including Bertazzoni, Monogram, Jenn-Air, KitchenAidThermador, Wolf, Dacor and Miele, ensuring you find the perfect option for your kitchen needs.

Food Disposal

default_name

Erase any trace of your latest magnum opus with garbage disposal units that can handle virtually anything you throw at them. With Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center’s line of food waste disposers, you’ll not only discover appliances with the horse power to cut through the toughest foods, but heavy duty tools that are quiet too.

Check out these tips to help you pick the right garbage disposal!

1. Motor Type
There are two types of motors: induction motors and permanent magnet motors. Most disposers use an induction motor, which is similar to motors used in large household appliances – such as washers, dryers and furnaces. These motors produce less noise and offer a long, reliable motor life. A permanent magnet motor is a lightweight, variable-speed motor that is similar to motors found in smaller appliances, such as power tools, blenders and hair dryers. While permanent magnet motors generally run at a higher RPM, they will run fastest with smaller grind loads.

2. Horsepower
Disposer motors can range from 1/3 horsepower to more than one horsepower. Higher-horsepower disposers are typically capable of grinding heavier loads easier, which prolongs motor life. Consider higher-horsepower models for larger families or frequent cooking.

3. Grind Stages
Disposers will offer either one, two or three grind stages. Here are the differences:
1-Stage: Many disposers feature only one stage of grinding, where food is ground once before passing through drain pipes with water.2-Stage: Grinds food in two stages to achieve a finer grind. The second stage of grinding virtually liquefies food waste, allowing for more types of difficult foods to be ground. It also decreases the chances for clogs or jams.3-Stage: This provides the finest grind available, allowing you to grind almost any type of food waste– including fibrous or hard materials–with no worry of clogs or jams. These units will even handle rib bones and cut grains of cooked rice into tiny pieces.

4. Component Materials
Three types of material are most commonly used with grind chambers and grind components: plastic, stainless steel and galvanized steel. Most disposers are constructed with thermoplastic polymer grind chambers, which help to resist rust and corrosion. However, stainless steel adds superior corrosion resistance that helps prolong disposer life. Galvanized steel is a durable material, but it can rust or corrode over time.

5. Noise Levels
Many homeowners are accustomed to loud disposers, but products with advanced sound technology can reduce noise levels by 30 to 60 percent. Look for disposers that have sound insulation and include noise-reduction features like noise-reducing sink baffles; anti-vibration sink mounts; and anti-vibration tail pipes.
