    Reasons to Choose a French Door Refrigerator

    Last updated 1 day ago

    One of the most important kitchen appliances in your home is the refrigerator. From cooking essentials such as milk, cheese, and produce, to family essentials such as leftover pizza and pudding snacks, your family's refrigerator holds some of the most important foods in the kitchen. This means that the refrigerator is opened and closed countless times per day. Why not choose one that looks great, functions well, and saves money? Here are some reasons why your next home appliance purchase should be a French door refrigerator:

    French door models are trendy. For a sleek, modern look that is in high demand right now, a French door refrigerator is the way to go. These models are prominently featured in home cooking shows and magazines because of their functionality and beauty. Upgrade your kitchen with one appliance purchase!

    French door refrigerators save space. Because you only open one door—half the width of the refrigerator—you save precious space in your kitchen. This can be a lifesaver in a small kitchen, or in a home where the kitchen is the heart of the house.

    French doors save energy. Only opening one door at a time lets less cold air out, meaning the appliance doesn't work as hard to get the air inside to the optimal temperature again. Models with a drawer above the freezer drawer can save even more energy by allowing you to put the most commonly used items there, preventing the entire door from being opened over and over.

    French doors give you options and convenience. With the entire top of the appliance dedicated to refrigeration, you can easily store party platters, large cakes, and tons of food for your family. No more pizzas sliding to the side, no more jumbled up party trays! You can fit almost anything inside the convenient French doors, and the freezer gives you more options for stacking and storing items. Any way you stack it, French door models are a great choice for your kitchen!

    Comparing Different Styles of Refrigerators

    Last updated 14 days ago

    If your refrigerator is on its way out and the time has come to buy new one, you may be in for a treat. Developments in refrigeration technology have shaken up the appliance industry, and today’s selection of refrigerators is better than ever. The most popular refrigerator design styles include the following.

    Freezer on Top

    Conventional and appropriate for most kitchens, refrigerators with freezers on top tend to be the most cost-effective models available. Though useful and affordable, this style of fridge tends to have a run-of-the-mill appearance. Also, most people who use this type of fridge have to bend over or squat when fetching non-frozen goods.

    Freezer on Bottom

    An inversion of the freezer on top model, a refrigerator with a freezer on the bottom makes refrigerated goods more accessible. The flip-side is that frozen goods can be difficult to get at, since the handle of the freezer compartment is rarely higher than 20 or so inches above the ground.

    Side-by-Side Freezer and Fridge

    The perfect refrigeration system for narrow kitchens, side-by-side refrigerators are all about space efficiency. In addition to requiring little clearance space for opening doors, this style of fridge generally contains drawers and shelves that make it easy to use all of your refrigeration space while keeping it organized. It also offers the advantage of storing frequently used refrigerated and frozen goods at an ideal height. If you like the idea of having narrow refrigerator doors, but would prefer to have wide shelves and storage drawers in your fridge, consider a French-door style model.

    With an extensive inventory of home appliances, Friedmans Appliance is the first place a Concord homeowner should look for a new kitchen refrigerator. To inquire about the energy-efficient models in our inventory, including appliances from reputable manufacturers such as Marvel and Sub-Zero, call (925) 265-8402.

    Tips for Choosing a New Dishwasher

    Last updated 22 days ago

    Few appliances simplify household cleaning duties as much as the dishwasher. Improvements in dishwasher technology have made dishwashing even easier and less time-consuming than dishwashers from ten years ago. New dishwashers rarely require dishes to be pre-washed or even rinsed beforehand, and are often equipped with all kinds of cool features. If you are in the market for a new dishwasher, and want to ensure that the appliance you choose is right for your household, consider the following factors during your search.

    Consider Capacity

    How much dishware does your household go through each day? How frequently would you like to run your dishwasher? The answers to these questions can help you determine how large your new dishwasher should be and whether it should have three tiers or just two.

    Look at Energy Efficiency

    Eco-conscious homeowners will be happy to learn that most modern dishwashers require less water than just about any handwashing technique. Models equipped with stainless steel washing arms and “clean load” sensors are especially efficient. Many newer models also use relatively little electricity. Do your research and choose a dishwasher that will help you feel good about your carbon footprint.

    Determine Long-Run Cost

    In the interest of financial planning, it is important to choose a dishwasher that works with your budget. When deciding how much you can afford to spend on a new appliance, however, keep in mind its durability, efficiency and energy costs. A dishwasher that may only last five years is not worth more than half as much as a reputable dishwasher that comes with a ten-year manufacturer’s warranty.

    Featuring the latest in dishwashing technology from Viking, General Electric, and Bosch, Friedmans Appliance in Concord is an excellent place to shop for a new dishwasher. To explore the dishwashers and other kitchen appliances in our inventory, visit our Concord showroom at a time that is convenient for you.

    How to Grill the Perfect Burger

    Last updated 29 days ago

    Have you recently returned from your favorite home appliance store with a brand new grill? If you are looking to celebrate your new investment by cooking up some mean burgers, check out this brief video for some helpful tips.

    Chef Michael Ollier of Certified Angus Beef demonstrates how to bring out the flavor in a high-quality ground beef patty. A little bit of salt and pepper is all you really need. For the best results, avoid poking, piercing, or prodding the burgers while they are cooking. Use a spatula so you don’t have to tamper much with the beef, and do not apply pressure to the burger.

    Preparing the perfect burger is easy when you have a state-of-the-art cooktop. Call Friedman's Appliance at (925) 265-8402 or visit our Concord showroom for a look at the best cooking and grilling appliances.
