How to Find the Best Deals Online?

Standard

It’s no question that the best discounts and convenience can be found online, especially with small appliances. The question is how much work you need to put to find the best deal.

Save by Shopping Smart

Appliances can have many hidden costs, especially when it comes to delivery fees. Delivery of some major appliances, like refrigerators, freezers, and oven, can cost as much as the actual product. If an appliance store is local, order online and pick up at the store for an instant discount off the shipping price.

Don’t Miss That Promo

Doesn’t it always seem like you find out about a promo or discount right after it ends? Sign up for e-mail alerts to ensure you don’t miss any offers from retailers and appliance manufacturers. Additionally, it doesn’t hurt to read the weekly circulars in your local newspaper, which can be difficult to locate online.

Manufacturer’s “deals”

While manufactures do not sell directly to consumers, most of them will offer mail-in rebates and other manufacturer events (see some offers here). However, the golden rule in shopping is the more you buy, the more you’ll save. You’ll receive the best discounts when you purchase a suite of appliances.

Research the Best Price

If you know what you want, but don’t need the appliance immediately, patience can pay off. For example, spring is typically the season when retailers make room for next year’s models, so likely you’ll be able to locate a discount or negotiate a better price. As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Necessity never made a good bargain.”

Best Time to Shop

A great time to shop for an appliance is near the end of the month, when salespeople are striving to reach their quotas. Weekdays will always be the better time to find the best deal on appliances -– and a great way to miss the weekend rush.

Online is Still the Best

No matter how many circulars you scan or how many sales employees you negotiate with, the best discounts are online. Whether it’s finding discount codes or cash back on your purchase, you should need feel the need to pay full price for any appliances.

The Best Home Appliances for Apartment Living

Standard

There is a growing market for space-conscious appliances as real estate prices rise in cities such as New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. However, just because you don’t have a big space does not mean that you need to downsize your style.

Below are some great home appliances that have multiple uses but also are easy to blend into your apartment design when space is no longer an option.

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner

While not the cheapest item on this list by far, you won’t regret purchasing an air conditioner when the summer months arrive. Minimalist design will blend well into any space and its high energy efficiency will save you on your electric bill.

Summit Compact Refrigerator

Don’t compromise performance with size. Compact refrigerators are perfect for small apartments or outdoor space, if available. While you may not be able to keep a whole turkey in the freezer, it’s enough room for liter soda and small enough to fit under a desk or counter.

George Foreman Grill

While this is a controversial item, banned in most college dorms, when used properly this is a great addition to any kitchen for burgers, paninis, and much more. It even has a bun warmer. The highlight: it’s extremely easy to clean.

Fagor Portable Induction Cooktop

This versatile indoor/outdoor cooktop is not only great for entertaining but also fast cooking. Induction cooktops are the most effective stove system, allowing for more even cooking and less burn risks – vital in tight quarters.

Avanti Toaster Oven

From toasting bagels to warming pizza, a toaster oven is a perfect addition to a countertop. While you can’t cook a full dinner, you’re able to make small batches of cookies. Also, slide-out racks and crumb trays make cleaning a breeze.

Dirt Devil Cordless Hand Vacuum

While not ideal for whole floors, a hand vacuum is a quick and easy way to clean up. Its narrow design makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces, and its flip open dirt cup allows for easy emptying.

Summit Washer Dryer Combo

When space is an issue, a washer dryer combo is a convenient, time-saving alternative. Best yet: it’s easy to use and can fit almost anywhere. Some models come with meals, so easy to move.

None of these items are meant for lifetime use, but when you’re living in a small apartment, these appliances will maximize your home with no compromise.

The 7 Best Kitchen Appliances to Give as Wedding Gifts

Standard

With the end of winter comes the beginning of the year’s wedding season. With most wedding registries listing between 150 to 200 items, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the selection.

Small kitchen appliances make a perfect gift for newly married couples, as they likely don’t have a lot of room in their home or apartment. Small kitchen appliances also allow them to the opportunity to whip up quick meals and save money.

Here are seven great kitchen appliances to give as wedding gifts:

Cuisinart Blender

A blender is a vital kitchen appliance that can whip up smoothies, salsa, or soup in no time. Even better, the couple can make their favorite frozen cocktails to celebrate their nuptials.

Rival Crockpot

A crockpot is the one of the top kitchen appliances that people want but never buy for themselves. Not only is a crockpot perfect for a working couple, because they will be able to prepare the ingredients in the crockpot before work, but it’ll save the couple money. Crockpots come in a variety of capacities and settings.

DeLonghi Espresso Maker

Depending on the couple, this may be the most used appliance in their kitchen. While you can go with a basic for a basic maker, assume they already own one and go for the espresso maker. With features like a milk frother, the happy couple will feel like they’re in Italy.

DeLonghi Food Processor

For the couple that loves to cook but limited on time, a food processor takes care of all the chopping, shredding, and slicing. A versatile gift; judge the size of the processor by whether the couple tend to entertain guests or not.

Kitchen Mixer

A stand mixer is one-stop shop for newlyweds, with numerous attachments that allow you to make everything from small cakes to ice cream. A cheaper alternative is a hand mixer, which is easily inserted into a box to combine wet and dry ingredients and mix cream into soup. Prices vary depending on style of mixer and attachments.

Panasonic Rice Cooker

Growing in popularity, it’s a great addition to anyone’s kitchen appliances. In addition to making perfect rice, a couple can use it to cook quinoa and even macaroni and cheese.

Haier Toaster Oven

Don’t confuse this kitchen appliance with your standard toaster. A toaster oven is a great gift for quick snacks, including pizzas or small batches of cookies. Any couple will enjoy this gift after their honeymoon when the last thing you want to do is prepare dinner.

I Furnished My Laundry Room…Now What?

Standard

The perfect laundry room will save you time and energy, whether you live in an apartment or a brand new home. However, many laundry rooms end up being cramped in the basement and/or the catchall for shoes, jackets, backpacks, and more. With advancements in washer and dryers, there’s no reason to hide your laundry room anymore.

With a few simple appliances easy to find online or around your house, you can de-clutter, reorganize, and brighten up your laundry space without breaking the bank.

Utility

Drying Bar

Unlike a drying rack, a simple drying bar makes the perfect space to hang shirts to dry or a spot to hold a shirt while pressing.

Task Lighting

When natural light is not an option, brighten your laundry room with an overhead lighting fixture or illuminate your work areas with some task lighting under a shelf.

Utility Sink

A utility sink can function both as a hand-washing station and a tub to soak the worst of your kid’s sport jerseys. Find some great options here.

Space-Saving

Bins

The laundry room tends to be the point of no return for extra towels and cleaning supplies, so keep a good number of bins on hand to ensure your closet stays organized.

Hampers

Save time by creating a system to presort clothes. Label each hamper for whites, lights, and darks, and maybe even your kids will wash a load. See a wide selection here.

Ironing Center

Never lose your ironing or ironing board with an ironing center. With features such as cord wraps, swivel boards, and spotlights, it will keep all your ironing supplies in one place. Additionally, shelving space can be used to organize additional clothes accessories, like lint brushes and clothespins. You can find many options here.

Laundry Pedestal

If you are low on storage or need to elevate your washer and dryer, a sturdy laundry pedestal is the perfect addition for extra space and storage for detergents, fabric softeners, and other laundry aids. You can see some great examples here.

Pet Area

Do you own a cat or dog? Their beds and food and water bowls can take up a lot of room in your house; creating a pet area in your laundry room is a great way to free up space. Just make sure you don’t place the area where people walk.

How to Buy a Dishwasher

Standard

Whether you’re finally upgrading your kitchen or replacing a broken unit, purchasing home appliances online can be as difficult as buying yourself a new pair of shoes. If you’re being gutsy and buying a unit from an online catalog, you need to make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. Don’t worry; we’re here to help!  Here is a guide to use so you can better understand the terms and features you need to ensure you’re getting the best appliance for the best price.

What Am I Looking For?

The first step is figuring out what your needs are. Thankfully, there are still just a few basic dishwasher categories out there, and most dishwashers are still your basic under-the-counter drop-door refrigerators, and differences center on their control panel. Full console dishwashers feature standard front-facing panels. These are generally less expensive, but they’re also considered a little gauche. The new hotness in terms of style would be high-end stainless steel fully-integrated control panels, which are invisible when the unit is closed and give your kitchen that beautiful flush look. In between are semi-integrated units, which hides most of the controls but maintain some display and control features on the front. These are a good compromise that combines form and function elegantly and gracefully.

Other model types include countertop dishwashers, portable dishwashers, and drawer dishwashers, which consume less space and can offer easier installation and the price of reduced capacity. Portable and countertop dishwashers are small, single-load dishwashers limited to around fix place settings — definitely not enough for large households, but probably perfect for a couple without children in a small apartment.

What Sort of Features Might I Encounter?

Dishwashers can come with a wide variety of features and abilities.

  • HardfFood disposal: A hard food disposer in your dishwasher spares you having to rinse off your dishes before you load them up, letting the hard food particles wash off during the cycle, after which they’re ground up and washed away. These can be great time-saving devices, making your cleanup quicker, more efficient, and easier for everyone.
  • Stainless steel tub: Stainless steel tubs can increase noise dampening and reduce drying times. They are stain- and rust-resistant, and are longer-lasting and more durable than plastic
  • Adjustable racks: These let you change the rack height to accommodate different dishes in the event, for example, you want to have a deep top for highball glasses and a narrow bottom for bowls, or a deep bottom for lobster pots and a narrow top for lobster forks. The sky’s the limit with adjustable racks!
  • Third racks: Third racks let you ramp up the versatility of your dishwasher pretty dramatically, letting you find even more configurations to accommodate whatever dinner it is you’re cleaning up from. These are great for large dinner parties with lots of utensils, because the third rack can take them all, letting you remove the utensil basket to allow for more space for plates and whatnot. Manufacturers offering third rack designs included Bosch, Maytag¸ and Asko.
  • Flood and leak prevention: These can operate under different brand names, but they boil down to systems that detect pooling water and shut down the cycle before it gets out of control.

What about energy efficiency?

All home appliances, including washers, dryers, refrigerators, and yes, dishwashers, have the potential to be energy hogs, and can get even worse because we use these items so frequently. And as we get more and more concerned about energy efficiency, reducing our carbon footprint, and practicing sustainable home living, getting that under control only gets more important.

In order to make sure you’re getting a dishwasher that’s good for your home, your wallet, and your planet, be sure to check for Energy Star certification when you’re doing your shopping, and consider all the available information about water consumption. Most dishwashers use around six gallons per load, while Energy Star units use four.

For what it’s worth, any dishwasher beats handwashing for energy efficiency, water usage, and soap usage.

Well, that wraps up this brief buying guide. For more information, you can check out our  more detailed version at the main Appliances Connection website. We do everything we can to make your purchase a breeze!

The Top Five Most Important Household Objects

Standard

Have you ever considered the many every-day items you use in your home on a daily basis? Some of the most common items are ones that many of us have never done without – however, these are inventions that once revolutionized the world. Much like the internet, cell phones and cable TV have changed the way we communicate and get information in the past couple of decades, inventions such as a refrigerator or washing machine once changed lives. The following is a list of the top five household items that have defined our living situations since their inception.

#1 The Bed

Whether you’re in it for your standard eight hours, a quick cat nap, or resting due to illness, there is at least a single bed in nearly every house. This masterwork of carpentry is the centerpiece to any personal space, equivalent to the refrigerator within the kitchen. There are more designs for beds than practically any other piece of furniture in existence.

#2 The Refrigerator

Not surprisingly, the most important kitchen appliance is where we keep food that can spoil. Prior to the invention of the common fridge, families had to receive large chunks of ice and place them into a container to keep their milk from going bad. This was fairly inconvenient, but also where we get the term “ice box” from. Thankfully, we no longer have to deal with the water that collected once the large chunk of ice melted.

#3 The Air Conditioner

It is said that mankind’s greatest power is to alter the environment to its need and comfort. Nothing exemplifies this idea greater than the air conditioner. Anyone who has lived through a sweltering summer day will understand immediately how important this machine is, second in comfort control only to the heater.

#4 The Personal Computer

While it may have only made its appearance as a common sight in households fifteen years ago, it is quickly climbing the charts as one of the most frequently seen items in homes. Aside from improving organizational and mathematical skills, the home computer also allows for access to the internet. With the rate at which information is exchanged in the 21st century, not having a computer can be a major inconvenience.

#5 The Washing Machine

Fashion choice might different from person to person, but everyone needs to keep their clothing clean. We have come a long way from scrubbing our garments in a basin, and most children these days won’t ever know what a washboard is. With famous brands creating household names such as the LG front load washer, washing machines have become somewhat of a fashion piece in their own right in recent years. 

Initial Steps After Moving into a New House

Standard

Moving into a new home is an exciting event for anyone, but it can be an overwhelming affair. Even after you find the time to pack, the means of transporting everything, and manage to get to the new house in one piece, there are still several other obligations that must be met. Though you might want to put off any other tasks until after you’ve had some time to relax, waiting too long can actually make your situation less tolerable. Consider the following tasks that ought to be done as soon as possible after moving.

Changing your Address

Nobody likes getting bills in the mail, but not paying them can get you into a world of trouble. Neglecting your payments due to not receiving the bill might not seem like your fault, but if you fail to change your address after moving you can be held responsible. Take a trip to the post office and fill out the requisite paperwork before too much time passes, otherwise you may end up paying lay fees or missing out on other important letters.

Get New Locks

Needless to say, your locks are what prevent criminals or other unwanted people from entering your home. When you move into a new house, however, there is the possibility that previous owners may have retained an old key. If the real estate agency fails to replace the locks themselves, this means a stranger might have full access to you and your family. It only takes a little bit of money and time to insure your protection after moving in.

Update Your Furniture

You may be tired once you get to your new house, but sleeping on the floor isn’t a long-term solution. If you weren’t lucky enough to be able to bring all of your furniture with you, it’s time to seek out new dressers, chairs, or beds. Seek out the best place to buy bedroom furniture near your new home so that you are comfortable as soon as possible, then focus on other rooms according to your priorities and family needs.

Set up the Utilities

You can’t very well live without lights, water, or heat. Many real estate agencies will help you with making sure that all of these are turned on before you arrive, but certain districts might make this difficult. If you find that any of these services aren’t working when you first arrive at the new location, place a call to the local utility companies and set up an appointment as soon as possible.

Aside

That dang polar vortex just won’t go away, will it? Temperatures are at record chills across much of the United States, and Atlanta is so snowed under (for Atlanta) that the city has more or less temporarily collapsed. Which means that. for those of you aren’t trapped on the beltways surround the Georgian metropolis, it’s time to think about warming up. We’re at least a month out from appreciably warm temperatures, so heating is still important. And if your heating at home isn’t quite up to the task — I know mine isn’t — then I’d like to introduce you to some friends of mine.

Meet American Comfort.

Yes, Virginia, there is still comfort in America, low as those temperatures might be, and American Comfort is one of the companies keeping you warm. For many years, American Comfort has been a world leader in portable and easy climate control. They have a comprehensive line of home heaters ready to make you toasty warm.

Awesome Super Bowl Recipes!

Standard

Well, the Super Bowl is coming up. Super Bowl XLVIII, to be precise. Don’t get too worried by that string of Roman numerals; we’re only two years away from 2016′s Super Bowl L. Here in New York, we may not have a team in the game but for the first time, the game itself is being hosted on our home turf, just across the Hudson at the Meadowlands, home of the Giants. This is the first open-air Super Bowl to be held in a cold weather city, which means that it might be frigid out there, both for the players and for the spectators. And since if you don’t have a ticket already you probably can’t get one, you’re just gonna have to watch it at home.

But that doesn’t mean it can’t be a party, does it? Absolutely not.

Break out the bright-red Daisy cups, make sure you’ve got plenty of ice, and get ready to dig in, because a Super Bowl party is more than just cracking open a bag of Doritos and ordering a pizza.
