New Wolf 36” Induction Range (Reviews/Ratings)

by Danny Nguyen

There is exciting news from Wolf appliances. There will soon be a 36” induction range!

Up to this point, you could only purchase an induction range in 30" width. You would have to buy a 30" induction cooktop and separate wall oven for a larger size.

We'll look at the other induction 36" range, induction technology and Wolf.

by Steve Sheinkopf

Weber has been the best selling grill for years. You're probably automatically considering one just because there is nothing comparable. We've experimented with different manufacturers like Napoleon and I have looked at 20 grills at various shows to no avail.

Our Annual Yale Tent Sale Is Saturday, May 7th, 2016

by Steve Sheinkopf

Ah, The Yale Tent Sale. Since the passing of the Filene's Basement Bridal Run, the Tent Sale is the last of these types of sales. If you have never been to one of these, it's a 2-3 hour hour mad grab. Yet it's totally worth it.

You can save a ton of money in one of these. We are not really a sale driven company. With all the internet transparency, you have to be competitive year round.

Then again, the Tent Sale is not about new items, but floor displays, discontinued products/vendors and scratches and dent, all for low prices typically 25-50% off our selling prices.

The Tent Sale will be in our Dorchester location only.

New Samsung AddWash Washer & Dryer (Review/Rating/Prices)

by Jessica Petrino

How many times did you forget to add a sock or outfit after you started your wash cycle? You would have to cancel the cycle, wait for the water to drain and the latch to release or perhaps you just wait for the next wash (which is why I have so many mismatched socks).

Lighting for Shaker Style Kitchens

by Lisa Proulx

The Shakers were a religious sect that emigrated from England to America after their founding in the late 1700’s. Their religious services would cause “Shaking” due to their intensity. We had some of the last Shaker settlements in New England.

They believed in a design philosophy of necessity and usefulness, and focused heavily on function. Many kitchens, especially German cabinets, emulate the Shaker style of old Germany.

We have carried dozens of grills over the years and have always had a different philosophy than most stores. You will always see different products here as it should be.

However, we are also the people you will call to rectify issues. It is our job to sell more reliable products, because we own the liability of repair.

Bosch vs. Electrolux Dishwashers (Ratings/Reviews/Prices)

by Brittany Jatkola

Bosch and Electrolux are two of the largest appliance companies in the world. Yet up until three years ago, you could not compare the two, because Electrolux does not market their own dishwasher in the U.S.A.

This is an interesting comparison between two different companies with two very different dishwashers. We will look at both companies, the products and then compare to see what might be right for your kitchen.
