Tips for Getting Cleaner Dishes from Your Dishwasher

Friedmans Appliance Showroom

Are your dishes not as clean as you’d like them to be when you remove them from the dishwasher? Your dirty dishes may not be the fault of your dishwashing appliance. So, before you call an appliance repairman, try these simple steps for cleaner dishes, shiny glasses, and sparkling silverware.

Remove Any Obstacles
Before you load your dishes, look at the base of your dishwasher to make sure there isn’t a piece of food or another obstacle impeding its function. Check the filter box that protects your dishwasher’s pump and remove any foreign objects that may be preventing your dishwasher from doing its job.

Use a Rinse Aid
If you have hard water, you may notice markings on your glasses and dishes. Dried water droplets leave deposits that cause these annoying streaks and spots. However, if you use a rinse aid, your dishes are more likely to dry evenly, so you can prevent these unsightly marks.

Avoid Pre-Rinsing Your Dishes
You may think you are helping out your dishwasher if you take the time to rinse your dishes before loading them. However, pre-rinsing can actually inhibit the dishwasher detergent, as it looks to attack food soil that you have already rinsed away. As a result, detergent is more likely to latch onto your glasses, causing a cloudy effect that can be permanent.

Don’t Overload Your Dishwasher
Improper loading can cause a lot of problems. Make there is enough space between dishes so that water from below has a chance to reach every item. Be sure to keep your more durable dishes on the bottom rack, and place your glasses and smaller dishes on the top. Do not load any dishes that are not dishwasher safe!

If these tips don’t do the trick, it may be time to purchase a new, state-of-the-art dishwasher—so visit Friedmans Appliance’s Concord showroom today! Our friendly staff will help you learn all about the fantastic features our appliances offer. For more information about our inventory and services, call (925) 265-8402.

A Fundamental Guide to Kitchen Ventilation from Friedmans Appliance

Kitchen Venitlation from Friedmans Appliance

When shopping for kitchen appliances at the home appliance store, don’t forget to add ventilation equipment to your list of must-haves. These products—namely oven hoods—provide the most effective means of collecting and dispersing grease, smoke, and odors that will inevitably accumulate as you cook. Here is a fundamental guide to kitchen ventilation that will help you pick out the perfect hood for your range:

Convertible Hoods
Convertible hoods can be placed in a number of locations around the oven, including under a cabinet or mounted alone on a wall. This type of hood takes in the polluted air that is created as you cook and disperses it in order to prevent a buildup of unbreathable air. Like with other hoods, the air can be ventilated to the outside of the home or re-circulate through filters.

Ductless Hoods
Ductless hoods are the best option for your kitchen if your oven is located on an interior wall that does not allow for ventilation to the exterior of the home. As you cook, the hood will extract any smoke or odors and filter them. The purified air is then released back into the home’s indoor environment. You can choose from over 200 styles of ductless hoods at Concord’s top appliance store—Friedmans Appliance.

Ducted Hoods
Standing in direct contrast to the ductless hood, a ducted hood vents air directly to the outside of the home. These stovetop and oven hoods are easy to install above ovens that are placed alongside walls that are connected to the home’s exterior. If your kitchen is not arranged in such a fashion, be sure to discuss your options for installing a ducted hood with an appliances expert.

The best way to find out which hood is right for your kitchen is to speak with a Friedmans Appliance professional. Our friendly staff has the knowledge and experience necessary to find the perfect match for your kitchen. Call us at (925) 265-8402 to learn more about the other household appliances we carry.

Thermador's 36-inch Masterpiece Series Freedom Induction Cooktop: The Latest in Induction Technology

UseableSurface

With the right cooktop from your home appliance store, you can feel like a five-star chef from the comfort of your own kitchen. One cooktop that’s sure to wow even the most culinary-minded customer is the 36-inch Masterpiece® Series Freedom® Induction Cooktop from Thermador. Here is a closer look at this model, which is truly the best that today’s induction technology has to offer:

Save Time and Energy with the Induction PowerBoost Feature
Every home cook has played the waiting game with an inefficient stovetop, wondering when it might finally heat the pots and pans placed upon it. Thermador’s 36-inch Masterpiece® cooktop heats cookware more quickly than any other product available on the market today. You will not only save time, but also energy, since reaching maximum temperature is one of the most energy-draining actions a cooktop undertakes.

Enhance Safety with Child Locks and the Pan Recognition System
As an appliance dealer will attest, this product from Thermador stands apart from the crowd when it comes to safety. If a non-cookware object is accidentally placed on the surface, the appliance will not turn on until the object is removed. This plays a large role in avoiding fires, burns, and a damaged cooktop. You can also lock the appliance so no curious little hands are able to turn it on without your knowledge.

Say Goodbye to Messes Thanks to Anti-Overflow Technology
Unlike other induction cooktops, Thermador’s Masterpiece® Series Freedom® Induction Cooktop is capable of shutting itself off at the first sign of a spill. If your boiling water happens to overflow, the appliance will alarm, turn off, and prevent the liquid from further burning the cooktop surface.

Concord’s premier home appliance store, Friedmans Appliance, can help you learn more about this appliance at our Pleasant Hill Showroom. In addition to energy-smart and technologically advanced cooktops, we carry the best selection of washers and dryers, refrigerators and freezers, and ovens.

Should You Purchase a Top-Loading or Front-Loading Washer and Dryer?

Friedmans Appliances - Front vs Top Load Washer

Are you thinking about buying a new washer and dryer set to replace your outdated models? If so, be sure to think about a few key features before heading to your appliance store, including the design of your new machines. Here is a guide to choosing between a top-loading or front-loading washer and dryer for your home:

Your Biggest Concern Is the Condition of Your Clothes
Front-loading washers tend to be gentler on clothing because they rely mostly on gravity, whereas top-loaders use agitation to more forcefully spin the clothes. This agitation can take its toll over time and eventually reduce the lifespan of your clothing. Advancements have been made when it comes to some top-loaders, so be sure to discuss each model individually with your appliances expert.

You’re Keen on Becoming More Energy Efficient
As trusted appliance companies like GE, Whirlpool, and Maytag work harder to design more energy-efficient machines, the consumer benefits. Many front-loading and top-loading washer and dryer models have been Energy Star approved, which means you don’t have to sacrifice style or function for sustainability. 

You Suffer from Body Aches or Have Trouble Kneeling
Ease of use is an important consideration to make before purchasing a machine at the home appliance store. If you are unable to bend your legs easily, or the act of doing so causes discomfort due to injury, arthritis, or a similarly debilitating condition, choose the more ergonomically efficient top-loader.

If you live in the Concord area and you’re still on the fence when it comes to choosing front-loading or top-loading washer and dryer units, speak with one of the appliance professionals here at Friedmans Appliance. After learning more about your home’s design, your lifestyle, and the frequency with which you use your machines, we can point you in the right direction.
