    Ice cube trays are outdated and provide insufficient ice for dinner parties. It’s challenging to ensure that your guests have refreshing, cool drinks when you have to wait for the ice cube trays to freeze or use inelegant bags of store-bought ice cubes. Home ice makers are a stylish solution to your dilemma. These luxury kitchen appliances allow you to make as much ice as you wish in a short period of time.

    Keep your wet bar, dining room, or media room well iced with a home ice maker. As an added bonus, the ice cubes made from your ice maker will not fuse together when stored in the freezer, unlike ice from trays. This is because ice makers have a sleek, cylindrical design. You need only tap the ice gently and they readily break apart.

A kitchen with integrated appliances offers the very best in modern design. The following luxury additions are sure to nurture your inner chef:

The hidden 2,600-watt heating element and large-capacity tub allow you to fry everything from single portions to an entire chicken without worrying about the mess of the grease or trouble with temperature control.

    Integrated Steamer

    After using your integrated fryer, you may wish to prepare healthier food with an integrated steamer. You can defrost a colorful array of vegetables and other foods, steam them, and keep them hot for prolonged periods of time without drying them out.

  • Signs Your Fridge Needs to Be Replaced

    Sub-Zero appliances-new fridge

    Without reliable home kitchen refrigeration, the lives of most American homeowners would be dramatically different than they are. To avoid having to experience the inconveniences and frustration associated with a lack of kitchen refrigeration, keep an eye out for telltale signs that your luxury refrigerator or freezer is on its last leg.

    Frequent and consistent noises that your refrigerator doesn’t normally generate are an indication that your fridge is working way harder than it should be working to preserve the food stored within. Regular occurrences of prematurely spoiled food, excess moisture, and noticeable heat coming from the back or sides of the refrigeration unit are additional signs that the time has come to go appliance shopping.

    If your refrigerator is begging to be replaced, you might as well replace it with something that is going to last. Built with precision and care and equipped with the most advanced refrigeration technologies available, Sub-Zero refrigeration appliances are as high-end as home refrigerators come. To speak with a supplier of luxury kitchen appliances in the St. Louis area, call AUTCOhome Appliances at (314) 373-2000 or Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome at (636) 224-4038.

  • Reasons to Keep Your Wine Collection Away from Your Fridge

    wine storage

    Fine wine that is properly bottled, stored, and aged is delightful to drink. Fine wine that is improperly bottled or stored is not so enjoyable. Regardless of whether you are an avid wine drinker with a host of winery memberships and your own personal wine cellar or a proud at-home entertainer who rarely keeps wine in the house for personal consumption but just purchased a few nice bottles for an upcoming dinner party, you should not store your wine in the kitchen fridge for more than a few days.


    Ideal wine storage temperatures vary from around 45 degrees to around 65 degrees. Since most homeowners set their fridge temperature below 40 degrees, the fridge is not the best place for long-term storage.


    Most perishable foods are best preserved at relatively high humidity levels of between 80% and 90%. Wine is best stored in areas in which the humidity is no higher than 80%. While high-end refrigerators have low-humidity drawers designed for the storage of foods that require refrigeration but are best preserved at humidity levels of between 60% and 70%, these drawers generally do not have the capacity to store much wine


    How many times a day does someone in your household open the refrigerator door? Vibrations and other movement are anathema to the quality of fine wine in the long-term, rendering the oft-used fridge an ill-suited place to keep that cab or merlot until the cork is ready to be popped.

    No Cellar? No Problem

    Now you may be wondering just where you should store your wine. If you do not have your own personal wine cellar or a basement that just happens to have the ideal climate for wine storage, consider purchasing a designated wine cooler. Sub-Zero has a varied selection of wine storage appliances to choose from, each of which can provide your collection of wine with ideal storage conditions.

    At AUTCOhome in St. Louis, we carry a variety of Sub-Zero’s wine storage products . With capacities ranging from 26 bottles to 147, one of these high-end appliances is sure to be well-suited to your wine storage needs. For a closer look at our wine coolers and other luxury appliances, visit one of our three St. Louis area showrooms or call AUTCOhome Appliance sat (314) 373-2000 or Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome at (636) 224-4038.
