Hey Appliance Fans, I’m addicted to two things. Rotisserie chicken and coffee. If I had to pick one of those two, I wouldn’t hesitate to eliminate the chicken and stick with coffee. I’m a connoisseur of coffee. A fiend for French Roast. A junkie for java. So you…

Knock Knock. Hey Appliance Fans, When I was hired at Kieffer’s Appliances, I thought an oven was an oven and a dishwasher was a dishwasher and so on. They were all the same to me, but now I know better. If you’ve read the blog before, you know that appliances have…

Hey Appliance Fans, One of the major reasons why I LOVE working at Kieffer’s Appliances is because in addition to the mainstream brands, we carry so many niche companies that do some REALLY cool stuff (see my Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet posts).  We just picked up a…

Well…. Maybe.  It can be all good, but it’s up to you to make sure your filter is clean if you have an over the range microwave in your kitchen instead of a hood system.  Not only is it vital for the safety and proper operation of the unit, it will go a long way...Read…

Do you remember the famous appliance colors of the 1970’s? Such classics as goldenrod and the illustrious and oh so very chic avocado. Ever since I’ve been at Kieffer’s Appliances, I’ve watched manufacturers desperately try to find the next big color other than…

  Hey Appliance Fans, Thermador keeps innovating, don’t they? New to the Thermador appliance lineup is their 30-inch wide Pro-Harmony range with five burners. That’s right, appliance fans. Instead of other manufacturers that produce their 30-inch ranges with…

Hey Appliance Fans, Today’s blog post is brought to you by the word, `snazzy’. It’s no secret that I love Miele Appliances (rhymes with tequila – I love using tequila as an example instead of Sheila).  Not only do they feature snazzy styling, each of their…

Hey Appliance Fans, Here we are again with one of my favorite ongoing segments.  Our customer’s kitchens!  So often we work with our clients for months as they bring their project into focus.  We’re emailing, calling, and re-quoting back and forth.  Then they…

Hey Appliance Fans, Did you ever see the movie Jurassic Park?  During my visit to Wisconsin, home of Sub-Zero and Wolf, I kept being reminded of Jurassic Park.  More specifically the line that Richard Attenborough’s character kept repeating throughout the movie,…
