Summer is here, and that means it’s time for one of the great America pastimes: grilling! From the West Coast to the East Coast and everywhere in between, people will be grilling hamburgers, hotdogs, steaks, chicken breasts, and more, all in the name of good food and great company. If you’re in the market for a new grill, visit your local appliance store before the grilling season ends. Here are a few tips to help you find the best new grill.

Don’t Overdo It

When shopping for a new grill , or any home appliance for that matter, it can be easy to splurge on something totally out of your price range with all the bells and whistles. But unless you’re planning on cooking for 20 or more people or plan on grilling every day, you can probably get away with a smaller grill. There are plenty of mid-range grills that offer additional features such as side burners and steamers without overdoing it.

Do Your Homework

Again, this tip is handy when shopping for any new home appliance, not just grills. You will want to do your homework before you settle on a new grill, especially if you aren’t sure about certain features and capabilities. Online reviews will also help you determine which brand is the most reliable, and which grill will offer the best performance for all of your outdoor grilling parties this summer. For additional help determining which grill is right for you, speak with the team at your local appliance store.

Summer Grilling Safety Tips

Grilling is one of the most popular summer pastimes in America, but it can also be one of the most dangerous. Every year, there are hundreds of stories across the country of barbecue grills exploding or burning down houses. Unfortunately, almost all of these accidents could have been avoided. There are some important safety tips to remember when working with a gas or charcoal grill. For starters, never leave the grill unattended. If you are using a gas BBQ, make sure the propane is turned off before you take the food inside.

Trends in Refrigerator Style and Design

Refrigerators aren’t just big cold boxes that keep food fresh and shows of your children’s artwork. Today’s refrigerators are equipped with next-gen conveniences that make life easier and even help you save money. Modern refrigerators are also much more stylish than they were in the past, sometimes even acting as the main focal point of the kitchen. If you are in the market for a new refrigerator , here is a look at some of the latest refrigerator style and design trends. 

Armoire Refrigerators

Also known as French-door refrigerators, armoire refrigerators themselves aren’t exactly new—but there are new armoire styles to choose from. LG and GE Profile, for example, offer new armoire style refrigerators with double lower freezer drawers. Haier America even makes armoire refrigerators with convertible bottom drawers that can be used as extra refrigerator space or a freezer, depending on your needs.

Interior Features

What really sets modern refrigerators apart from those of the past are interior features. Door-mounted water and ice isn’t new, but several manufacturers have improved upon this convenience, such as Maytag’s Fill-n-Chill dispenser that serves ice and water at the same time. Dedicated soda can storage racks are a popular option that can help you get organized. There are also now a plethora of temperature- and humidity-controlled compartments that can keep your meat and produce fresher, longer.

Energy Star Certified

Eco-friendly is definitely “in” in 2014, so look for the Energy Star label when looking for a new refrigerator. Energy Star qualified refrigerators use at least 20 percent less energy than required by current federal standards, and 40 percent less than models sold in 2001.
