Wolf also offers custom component options for cooktops. Here, a deep fryer, a grill, gas burner and teppanyaki griddle make up the cooking system. Also available are steamers, electric and induction specialty units. These allow homeowners to design a kitchen exactly for the type of cooking they do. Of course, there are those who will always prefer the power of gas burners, and Wolf offers plenty of options, such as this arrangement. The cooktops come with choices of two, four or five burners. Ilve, well-known for its ranges that can be ordered in an amazing range of colors, has added new features and sizes. This 36-inch range has an induction cooktop and a larger oven cavity. Originally a smaller 30-inch model made for smaller spaces, this slightly larger version can be had in any custom color. Bluestar kitchens highlighted their appliances in a collection of settings that feature styles from US regions. Here, their double ovens in red are paired with green cabinetry and matching custom doors for the refrigerator in a Pacific Northwest kitchen. In a Southwestern color palette, Bluestar features a stunning ventilation hood, and a customizable range with various cooktop options. The range is available in sizes that are appropriate for smaller kitchens as well.
Sealed granite is not porous so it is impervious to bacteria and germs, making it a very sanitary surface because it won't serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. It also resists stains and liquids. Go ahead and plop down that hot pot. Granite countertops can take the heat and will not scorch. The stone is formed through pressure and heat, so it is naturally able to hand hot items. Granite countertops don’t need a lot of maintenance, especially with regard to cleaning. Periodic sealing is required, particularly for light colored granite. Among all the home improvements you can make, granite countertops are one addition that typically improves home resale value. Any kitchen upgrade will likely boost value, but granite is a definite plus on the bottom line at sale time.
According to The Kitchen, don‘t use abrasive cleaners and sponges, Windex, acidic liquids like vinegar, lemon, lime, or anything with ammonia or bleach. Frequent use of these chemicals will dull and weaken the sealant over time. How much does granite cost? Granite has a wide price range of $45-$400 per square foot per square foot, installed. The great variation is due to variations in the rarity of the stone, its thickness, origin, and any special features. Buyers should ask plenty of questions as to whether price quotes include installation. According to the Family Handyman, an ambitious DIY enthusiast can indeed install a granite countertop. If you have straight countertops with no inside corners, or are just installing an island, it‘s actually quite an easy DIY project.
