    Constructing an outdoor kitchen is one of the most effective ways to ensure that you make use of your St. Louis home’s beautiful backyard. In addition to a grill and range oven, one appliance that has a place in every outdoor kitchen is the refrigerator. Even homeowners who do not have full outdoor kitchens can benefit from outdoor refrigeration when sunning outside on a warm summer day or entertaining friends.

    On those warm summer days, outdoor refrigerators are ideal for storing beverages that will help you stay hydrated without having to venture far from the comfort of your patio furniture. When you have guests over, you can grab beverage refills without having to take a break from dinner conversation or miss out on anything.

    Sub-Zero manufactures an energy-efficient undercounter refrigeration system that is ideal for any outdoor kitchen or food preparation area.

  • A Look at the Advantages of Gas-Powered Stoves and Ranges

    dual fuel range

    In terms of importance to good at-home eating, the only kitchen appliance that rivals the refrigerator in importance is the oven range. Once upon a time, homeowners had little choice when deciding on an energy source for this appliance. Today, two power options vie for the homeowner’s attention: gas and electricity. To learn more about the first of these options and the advantages users of gas heating appliances are thankful for, continue reading this article.

    Heat-Up Time

    When you fire up a gas-powered stovetop, heat comes at your desired level immediately. In eras past, the only way for this feat to be achieved was through the direct lighting of a pilot flame. Today, owners of modern gas-powered heating appliances simply turn a knob and stop when the flame is at its desired level.

    Temperature Accuracy

    Just as there is no waiting at start-up, gas stovetops and ranges respond immediately to temperature control change requests. If the water in your pasta pot is boiling over, you don’t have to bother to set the pot aside as you wait for the temperature of the burner to reach the “low” level you just set it at. The temperature will drop immediately and abruptly.

    Distribution of Heat

    With a gas-powered stovetop, the bottoms of your pots and pans do not need to be perfectly flat in order for heat to be distributed evenly through them. The flames burn in a predictable circle or other concentric shape that spread heat throughout your cookware in a similarly predictable manner.

    Are you currently building a home in the St. Louis area or remodeling your kitchen and looking for a high-end gas cooktop that will help you prepare dishes in a seamless fashion. AUTCOhome Appliances in St. Louis, MO carries Wolf gas cooktops in widths of 15”, 30”, and 36”. For homeowners that would prefer to cook with electric, induction, or duel-fuel ranges, we’ve got those as well.

    Theme or no theme, the design and décor of your backyard will play into every guest’s enjoyment factor. You can be simple or elaborate, creative or conventional. Just be sure that the entertainment space is clean, neat, and has some decorative touch to it. This tells guests that you have been looking forward to entertaining them.


    No matter the reason for celebrating, food is likely to be an important component of every party you ever have. Hiring a caterer is always an option; but if you intend to entertain time and time again, you should consider the acquisition of some high-end outdoor kitchen appliances. In addition to providing you with total culinary flexibility in planning and preparing for your events, your outdoor kitchen will be appreciated on nice days when you decide you would like to cook and dine with your family outdoors. An outdoor kitchen’s essential appliances include a grill, range, and refrigerator. A dishwasher and countertop space for food preparation are added bonuses.

  • Inside Sub-Zero’s Elegant 36″ French Door Refrigerator/Freezer

    subzero french door

    One of luxury-appliance brand Sub-Zero’s most popular products is its 36” French door refrigerator/freezer. This towering, elegant appliance can contribute an upscale, gourmet appearance to even the most humble of kitchens. Read on to learn about what make this Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer so highly prized by professional chefs and home cooks alike:

    Design Aesthetics

    Few things can ruin the look of an otherwise-pristine kitchen than an appliance that looks as though it doesn’t belong. Unincorporated refrigeration units—i.e. those simply pushed up against a wall rather than fitting into the design—can do just that if they protrude into the open space. Sub-Zero’s French door refrigerator is a built-in unit, meaning that it can be incorporated into the walls of your kitchen. This not only saves space, but it also creates a more pleasing aesthetic experience.

    French Doors

    How many times have you struggled to put a pizza box in your traditional single-door refrigerator because the doors didn’t open wide enough? Sub-Zero’s unit has two French doors that can be opened simultaneously or independently for easy access, no matter where you are standing. French doors open much wider than traditional configurations which makes it easier to fit in bulky items such as sheet pans, large dishes, and pizza boxes. The wider opening can also have a stretch effect on your kitchen, making it seem much bigger when the doors are opened, revealing the cavernous but well-organized interior space.

    Sub-Zero Quality

    Sub-Zero is known far and wide for its top-of-the-line products, all of which adhere to its very high standards. Sub-Zero products are efficient, elegant, and backed by a flexible-term warranty to ensure that you can get the most out of your refrigerator for many years to come.

    The best place to shop for and purchase a Sub-Zero French door refrigeration/freezer in the St. Louis area is AUTCOhome Appliances. We always strive to offer the most competitive deals and great customer service to ensure that our customers can always find something to please.

  • The Convenience Offered by Wolf Warming Drawers


    Warming drawers are one of the lesser-known products offered by luxury kitchen appliance manufacturer Wolf. These handy appliances are often viewed as unnecessary in anything except a five-star restaurant, but this is an unfair assumption. Warming drawers add a host of benefits to any home kitchen, including these two:

    Keep Foods Warm for Late Arrivals

    Not everyone can guarantee that they will be home in time for dinner, and if they are late, their dinner might be stone cold. The usual solution to this to reheat a missed dinner in the microwave, but some foods just never taste as good once they go cold and have to be reheated. For example, freshly baked breads tend to get tough and chewy, meats dry out and get overcooked, and pizza gets limp and soggy after a few revolutions in the microwave. Wolf warming drawers are specially designed with stainless steel and heat-trapping features that circulate the heat evenly around the food. This ensures that all your leftovers will taste just as good as they did when they first came out of the oven.

    Reduce Stress When Entertaining

    Dinner parties can be a stressful time for anyone, especially when it comes to the food. Unless you’ve hired a team of chefs to cook, you will constantly be running back and forth between the table and your kitchen to check on the food that is still cooking and prepare and plate the next course. With a Wolf warming drawer, you can prepare everything in advance and keep it hot in the drawer so all you need to do is put it on the plate and serve it. You’ll never have to leave the party for too long, and because you won’t have to worry about the food, you can actually enjoy yourself as you talk, laugh, and soak up the compliments about your party.

    AUTCOhome is proud to carry Wolf brand kitchen appliances , including warming drawers. We also stock a number of other luxury appliances for kitchen and home in many brand such as Viking, Maytag, and Subzero.
