• How to Load Your New Dishwasher

    Loading your dishwasher may seem like a simple enough task, but there are some general guidelines you will want to follow in order to get the most out of your new appliance. Start by placing your pots, plates, and heavy-duty items on the lower rack, as the heat and water pressure is stronger at this level. When stacking your plates, consider staggering small plates in between large ones, as this will keep them from falling over during the cycle. The top rack should be reserved for glasses, mugs, and bowls, leaving some space along the sides of the top rack for pots, pans, and large cookware items.

    As a good rule of thumb, you will want to make sure that none of your dishes are directly touching one another, as this may cause them to chip. You will also want to make sure that any silver or stainless steel cookware items are separated, because the metals can be damaged due to chemical reactions of the silver.

  • Looking for a New Refrigerator? Consider These Popular Features

    Friedmans Showroom

    For many people, the most important  home appliance  available today is the refrigerator. Refrigerators allow us to preserve food for longer and conveniently provide us with chilled food and beverages.

    However, with so many brands, designs, and models on the market, choosing the right refrigerator for your home can be overwhelming. Consider these features first to make your next refrigerator purchase a smooth, stress-free event:

    Refrigerators come in several configurations, including side-by-side, top-freezer, bottom-freezer, and specialty-sized. Some features are not available in all configurations due to the design of the appliance, so it is important to carefully consider each configuration and the features that it offers.

  • Is a Stand-Alone Freezer Right For You?

    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.
