    After the recent discussion about stainless steel appliances, I suddenly wished my dishwasher was stainless. It's from the early 80's, metal at the top and edges with one of those coloured panels on the bottom and door (they used to come with a selection of panels and you just put the one on...

    With the impending purchase of our new home, we're looking to also upgrade the appliances. DH and I both want something functional and not overbearing (the chances of us getting a galley kitchen are pretty good) that's durable and lasts a long time. Stainless steel is definitely on our list...
  4. Just Tips
    Just thought I'd pass this along. Our front-load washer had started to make an awful racket. A local repair man said it was probably the motor ($200 for the part). Their labor cost to replace it was around $200. I posted on Appliance Guru explaining the problem and including a video...

    I purchased a GT Express 101 (new-in-the-box) http://www.gtxpress.com/ at a garage sale 2-weeks ago for $5. I've seen the info-mercials and thought it would work well for quick meal preparation during these hot summer days, when I can't use the Solar Ovens. I've managed to scale down some of...

    Our house came with a 1996 GE Spacemaker microwave/overhead light/vent fan. The door handle broke, DH was able to superglue it but it's breaking again and this time can't be fixed that easily. Where do people get replacement parts for their appliances? I'm not sure I want to replace the...

    Besides your refrigerator/freezer, stove, oven, and microwave (all of which could be considered "basics") what appliance do you find the most useful in your kitchen? For myself and my husband, I would say that it's the crockpot. Followed closely by our George Foreman grill.

    Ok I have two favorites. :D I bought a flavor injector today and it felt funny because it was just a syringe with a nice fancy needle on the end that had three holes towards the tip. I kept putting it into the turkey, injecting about 1 tbsp of the juice, and then basted it every half an hour...

    Hi all - I have been saving up my amazon gift certificates for a while and I'd really like to purchase something that will help me with my stocking up/savings goals in the kitchen. I'm trying to decide between a food dehydrator, a foodsaver or a canning system. Any suggestions as to which...

    I found a washer at Lowes but I am appliance stupid. So I hope someone can help me. Is a 2.5 super capacity a regular sized washer? It has a heavy duty cycle as well as the normal ones. The heaviest I have to wash are a pair of coveralls that dh wears to work. The rest are just normal everyday...

    There is a forum thread at Kitchen Appliances: the Good, the Bad, the Ugly that I found really interesting. Here's my copied and pasted contribution to that forum discussion... How about all of you? Are you collectors or do you keep just the basics? ...Karen

    I have to say I'm really diggin' Maytag. My mom had that washer that lasted for 18 yrs. or so, I had a great dishwasher for about 12-13 years that we replaced recently while we're updating the kitchen. Now I have an oven...hope it lasts like the others did.

    I'm holding a grudge with Whirlpool b/c of an oven that I bought that had to have a $100 part replaced once a year for 13 years starting 6 months after I bought it. I've bought all sorts of other appliances for my kitchen trying to get ones that fit and match (well relatively speaking) without...

    Another thread I was reading, Yankeemom's about her extended warranty, made me think about this. I remember a Maytag washing machine that my mother had that lived to be 18 years old with no repairs. I've never had one that good but I did have one last for 10 years, which was a record, even...

    My bread maker. I didn't like the outcome of the bread so ended up swapping my bread maker for a few craft items with the neighbour.
