Cooktop & VENTILATION

When it comes to cooking, the Wolf gas burners on this cooktop are the best you can get. Because of dual gas lines in each burner there is such precise control of temperatures that even the most delicate sauces or candies will not scorch. And on high they put out 20,000 btus which makes for a very quick boil!

The ventilation for the Wolf cooktop is the Best Cirrus hood. Notice how it is discreetly mounted to the ceiling and does not obstruct our client’s view into the living room. That way she can keep an eye on all her grandkids during their visits!

It’s hard to tell what is a cabinet and what is a refrigerator/freezer when it is integrated with panels on the front. This SubZero 36″ refrigerator column keeps food fresher longer with the perfect temperature, humidity and air purity balance. Leafy greens will stay fresh up to 4 weeks!

A close view of the integrated SubZero 36″ freezer column shows how seamlessly it blends into the cabinets around it.  This is possible only with a special hinge that allows the doors to open and close with only 1/4 inch of clearance around them.

6 Steps to Better Dishwasher Performance

Is your dishwasher ready to take on all those dirty holiday meal dishes? If not, here are some tips to get better dishwasher performance during its hardest working season!

You can't complain about better dishwasher performance! Love these tips! | Duerden's Appliance

You may find that your dishwasher isn’t working like you expected even if it is fairly new. You may even wonder why they don’t make them like they used to. The truth is that dishwashers and dishwashing detergent have changed completely and we need to adjust to how we use them. It used to be that dishwashers used 35 gallons of water and phosphate-based detergents. In 2010 phosphates were eliminated from detergents, leaving a lot of users disappointed and manufacturers in a panic. At the same time, the Department of Energy has become more stringent on the amount of water and energy a dishwasher can consume before it can be released for production.

The good news is that dishwashers, if used properly, can actually do a better job than they used to. Here is our advice on how to get the best performance from your machine:

1. Use the right detergent.

Manufacturers have tried every detergent available and rated Finish Quantum soft tablets the best. We have also tried these in the dishwashers in our showroom and agree that they are the top performing product.

2. Make sure your rinse aid reservoir is full.

Rinse aid is very important because it causes the water to sheet over the dishes instead of beading up and causing spots. It also helps them dry better. Any brand of rinse aid is fine.

3. Don’t rinse your dishes before loading them.

Just scrape off the bigger chunks of food and throw them in. The white powder in your Finish tablet is an enzyme that will biologically react with the food on your plates. If there is no food, the powder will become a chalky film on the dishes.

4. Run the hot water in your sink before you start the dishwasher.

Most dishwashers have the ability to heat the water, but they may take the whole cycle to do it. Better dishwashers such as Asko, Bosch, G.E. and Kitchen Aid have a guaranteed water temperature and won’t start counting down the cycle until that temperature is reached.

5. Run the dishwasher whenever you want.

We know your mom taught you not to run it until it was completely full. Back then she was right because her dishwasher used 35 gallons of water and was louder than a freight train! With our new dishwashers that use 2-3 gallons of water, even a half full dishwasher is more energy and water responsible than washing dishes by hand. Also, dishwashers are so quiet now that they can be run while you’re watching TV in the same room.

6. Clean your dishwasher with vinegar.

If you live in an area with hard water you will get a build-up of white film inside the dishwasher. When you see this, pour two cups of white vinegar into an empty dishwasher and run a full cycle. It will look brand new on the inside!Good luck and happy dishwashing!

Kitchen Appliances

The star of the kitchen is the Wolf 48″ gas range. The 20,000 BTU gas burners are hot enough to boil water in minutes, yet gentle enough to simmer delicate sauces for hours. Saturday morning pancakes and bacon are a breeze on the built in Wolf griddle. And with two ovens the home chef can prepare meals to easily feed a hungry crowd!

While it isn’t as exciting to talk about as cooking, good ventilation is critical with a range this powerful. The heat and grease need to be captured and allowed to escape out of the kitchen. This discreet Wolf hood liner is installed into a millwork cover designed and built by Heber Wood Classics. It is quiet and gets the job done!

A 30″ SubZero refrigerator and a 30″ freezer both disappear behind cabinet panels and blend seamlessly into the kitchen. SubZero is the finest in food preservation, making food stay fresher and last longer.

It’s tough to spot the dishwasher since it has a cabinet panel, but it will be even harder to hear it! The Asko dishwasher can keep up with this family because of its 40 gallon per minute water pump and on board water heater. The Wolf drawer microwave is tucked below the sink for easy access and efficient use of space.
