A Look at Dishwashers from KitchenAid

Inside a dishwasher

KitchenAid introduced the world’s first home dishwashing machine in 1949 and has been producing top-quality dishwashers ever since. The next time you’re in an appliance store in Concord , you’ll be excited to see the latest that KitchenAid has to offer.

When you’re searching for home appliances, it’s always beneficial to consider what features you might need or want. This is certainly true when you buy a dishwasher , so it’s a good idea to be prepared when you start shopping.

  • KitchenAid produces dishwashers in three series: the Classic, the Superba, and the Superba EQ. Each series has a selection of models and options, which you can learn about in detail at your local home appliance store. No matter which series you choose from, you can expect results that are 25% better than the competition’s, based on combined wash and dry results of other brands’ highest MSRP models.
  • All KitchenAid dishwashers are designed for energy efficiency and quiet operation. They feature specialized wash arms that spray water at high pressure, which leads to more effective cleaning. They are also the quietest dishwashers available: The Classic series operates at only 52 decibels (conversational speech registers at 60), while the Superba EQ boasts a mere 40. The EQ , by the way, stands for “exceptionally quiet.”
  • In terms of quality, a dishwasher from KitchenAid will always give high performance. They all have stainless steel tubs; adjustable, easy-glide dish racks; and one-hour wash cycles. Capacities range from 14 to 16 place settings, and the Superba EQ series has a third culinary tool rack. Some models have a heated dry option. The Superba and Superba EQ models can be equipped with the Pro-Scrub system, which is a set of water jets that eliminates baked-on food. The Superba EQ series also features soil sensors and a variable-speed motor so that each dishwasher uses just the right amount of water to clean each load. Other advanced features and options are available as well.

History of the Viking Range

You wouldn’t normally look at a home appliance and think of it as having a colorful and unlikely history, but that is precisely the case with the Viking range.

It all started with a fellow named Fred Carl, Jr. in the town of Greenwood, Mississippi in the early 1980s. He designed, as this video describes, a “big, hulking, fire-breathing, restaurant-style” range that people could use at home. 

After being dismissed by manufacturers at the time, Fred Carl completed his designs with local help and perfected his massive stove by 1987. From there, his business took off. Greenwood, Fred’s beloved hometown, is now the manufacturing and corporate headquarters of the tremendously successful Viking Company. Watch this full clip to learn more!

If you live in Concord, California and are looking for an unbeatable stove, visit Friedmans Appliance . At our home appliance store, you can see the impressive Viking range in all its glory. Be sure to call us at (925) 265-8402 for specs on our Viking appliances.

Top Reasons to Equip Your Home with a Stand-Alone Freezer

Are your home appliances serving you in the best way possible? Are they energy efficient? Are they convenient and affordable to use? The next time you’re in a home appliance store , take a serious look at the stand-alone freezers. Installing one in your home could be an excellent investment.

  • A freezer can help you save money: People often reduce their grocery bills by storing large amounts of food they’ve purchased on sale or in bulk. Some shop at warehouse stores, while others take advantage of store sales and coupons. Those who live near farmers’ markets often buy large amounts of fresh produce and freeze it for later use. People with gardens will do the same with their home-grown vegetables. Still others will buy large amounts of meat from their local butchers and stock their freezers with it.
    Stand-alone freezers are designed to maintain temperatures that are much lower than the freezer compartments in refrigerators. Because of this, nearly any type of food can be frozen and stored for months at a time. The U. S. Department of Agriculture has helpful guidelines for freezing foods safely and effectively.
  • A freezer saves you time: Many people like to prepare large dishes, like casseroles, and freeze them to use later when they have less time to cook. Others will prepare whole meals and store individual servings that can be reheated. Consider that having large amounts of food on hand also means fewer trips to the market.
  • New models are energy efficient: Look for the Energy Star rating or similar information when you’re at your neighborhood home appliance store in Concord. Many models include estimates of how much they will cost to operate over the course of a year. Over time, your savings on food will likely exceed the cost of the freezer, making it an excellent investment.

When you’re shopping for appliances in Concord , the expert staff at Friedmans Appliance can answer your questions about freezers and a wide range of other home appliances. Call us at (925) 265-8402 to discuss which appliances will be the best fit for your home.
