  • 3 Signs It’s Time to Upgrade Your Kitchen Appliances

    Green Refrigerator

    Proper maintenance can go a long ways towards extending the lifespan of your kitchen appliances . However, whether due to age or defective parts, your appliances will eventually need to be replaced. This is the perfect opportunity to upgrade. Advances in technology and design mean that buying new will save you money on energy, update your kitchen’s appeal, and increase the resale value of your home. Don’t wait until your refrigerator or stove breaks down. Look for these signs that it’s time to invest in new, high-end kitchen appliances:

    1. High Energy Bills
      Decades-old kitchen appliances weren’t held to the same high energy efficiency standards that modern appliances are currently held to. As they age, their parts start to break down. Producing heat for the oven or running the motor on the refrigerator will require more energy from an inefficient appliance. You might be accustomed to your current appliance’s energy costs, but wear and tear adds up, and you’ll see the increased energy consumption reflected in your monthly energy bill.
    2. Inadequate Performance
      Half-clean dishes after running the dishwasher, spoiled food or lukewarm liquid in the refrigerator, and meals that turn out undercooked from the oven are all signs that your current kitchen appliances are failing you. If they continue to under perform no matter how many times you try to repair them, it’s time to invest in upgrades.
    3. Frequent Repairs
      At some point in you’ll have to have your kitchen appliances repaired. For those looking for a short-term savings, repairing instead of buying new is a valid option. However, if you find yourself having to constantly repair the same part on the same appliance over and over again, it’s time for an upgrade.

    Has it become apparent that your refrigerator or range can’t quite cut it anymore? Upgrade your outdated installations by investing in new high-end kitchen appliances . At AUTCOhome Appliances, we specialize in supplying the definitive name brands of the appliance industry. Call us at (314) 373-2000 to find out how SubZero’s dual refrigeration technologies or Wolf’s cooking innovations can broaden your kitchen horizons.

  • Sub-Zero Refrigeration: Choosing Your Style

    You’ve already decided that SubZero’s commitment to unmatched quality and design is exactly what you are looking for in refrigeration technology. You want a luxurious food preservation system, not just an ordinary kitchen appliance . Now you must decide which style of refrigeration will both suit your personal needs and add to the timeless look of your kitchen. SubZero provides with you with many stylish and technologically innovative options:

    • Color
      Cabinet-colored facing on your refrigeration unit adds to a comfy country-style kitchen feel, while stainless steel goes well with a modern and sleek design. Stainless steel typically matches well with darker colors, creating a stark but pleasing contrast. Cabinet-colored is best if you want your refrigeration unit to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your kitchen.
    • Door
      A UV-protected glass door on your refrigeration appliance adds convenience and a bit of panache to your kitchen scheme. Displaying the contents of your refrigerator helps you locate a food item before opening the unit and keeps you constantly updated on your current inventory. Also, a glass door refrigerator is great way to break up a kitchen containing a lot of solid walls and cabinetry. However, if your kitchen contains a lot of free hanging elements, a solid door may be more beneficial in adding balance.
    • Location
      Do you wish you had a refrigerated compartment built into your entertainment system or in your master suite? Subzero’s innovative technology allows you to integrate refrigeration units anywhere in your home. If you’re looking for something more traditional that adds to the structural cohesiveness of your kitchen design, consider a built-in model instead.

    After you’ve chosen the style of appliance that best accentuates your kitchen, contact AUTCOhome Appliances, a trusted supplier of SubZero’s luxury refrigerators. Call us at (314) 373-2000 to find out why SubZero appliances have been the leader in clean, reliable, and personalized food preservation for 60 years.

  • Induction Cooking Technology

    Induction cooking technology uses magnetic friction to heat your cookware, negating the need for gas and electric appliances. This new technology has only recently become accessible to the general public.


    Watch this video to learn about the many benefits of induction cooking technology. If you like the precision of gas cooking but are wary of the flame, induction is the right fit for you. The reaction takes place in your cookware, leaving the cooktop’s surface cool to the touch and easy to clean. Without the need for gas or electricity, you’ll also save big on your energy bills.


    Are you interested in adding induction cooking technology to your kitchen? Call AUTCOhome Appliances at (314) 373-2000 for information on Wolf induction cooktops and other luxury kitchen appliances.

  • Understanding Convection Technology

    Luxury Kitchen

    If there is one kitchen appliance that most people are missing, it is the convection oven. While convection technology has been a mainstay in the restaurant industry for several years, it has been slow to make its way to the home. However, appliance manufacturers are starting to offer residential convection models and are even integrating the technology into other kitchen appliances, such as microwaves and toaster ovens.

    • Differences Between Conventional and Convection Ovens
      A convection oven differs from a conventional oven in two ways: the utilization of a fan to create air circulation and the addition of a heat source. Whereas conventional ovens contain two interior heating elements (one on top and the other on the bottom), a convection oven adds an additional element to the back. This additional heating source, combined with the fan, offers increased heating capacity.
    • Working with Convection Ovens
      The fan, located at the rear of the oven and covered by a baffle, continually sucks in the heat emitted from the heating elements and blows it back into the oven. The circulated hot air blown around the oven cavity increases the rate of heat transference between the heating elements and the food being cooked.
    • Benefits of Convection Ovens
      With the additional heating element and forced air flow, a convection oven cooks more evenly on every rack, requiring lower temperatures and using less energy. This means that your Thanksgiving turkey will be brown all around, and your three sheets of cookies will rise at the same rate. Also, a convection oven cooks 25% faster than a conventional oven, allowing you to enjoy your perfectly baked food in less time.

    The convection oven is an appliance that every serious home chef should have in his or her kitchen arsenal. Get the very best by investing in a name-brand convection oven, like Wolf.

  • Choosing the Right Wolf Cooktop for You

    Cooking with pots

    A truly great meal depends upon the quality of your cooktop. Wolf manufactures the finest in kitchen cooking appliances, including beautiful electric, gas, and induction cooktops. Futuristic in their design and precision, each heating method boasts tested durability, seamless integration into your current kitchen, and total cooking control. Luxury awaits those who choose Wolf cooktops :

    • Electric
      Sleek and stylish, the electric cooktop offers touch controls, a scratch-resistant glass surface, and flexible design options to blend in with you kitchen design. If you already own an electric stove, choose this cooktop for ease of integration. Take your pick of 15”, 30”, and 36”, all of which feature True Simmer and Melt heat settings.
    • Gas
      Whereas an electric-powered cooktop requires time for its coils to adjust to your desired temperature setting, a gas cooktop offers precise control over the application of heat. Gas cooktops from Wolf feature auto re-ignition to relight an extinguished flame, True Simmer, and low-profile grates to allow smooth movement of your pans between burners. You might want to choose gas if you’re not quite comfortable with an induction cooktop.
    • Induction
      Induction cooking is an innovate heating method that uses magnetic friction to heat your pan, causing the pan to essentially become its own heat source. Offering precision and control, the only drawback of an induction cooktop is its reliance on specific cookware. Wolf is one of only a few companies in America to offer an induction cooktop, which is why they have made sure that its elegance is matched by its consistency.

    If you need more help deciding which cooktop option would be best for your cooking style, contact AUTCOhome Appliances at (314) 373-2000.
