  • What You Need to Know Before Purchasing an Induction Cooktop

    induction cooktop

    If you love to cook but hate working in a hot kitchen, you may be interested in purchasing an induction cooktop. These revolutionary cooktops use an electromagnetic field to heat up pans while leaving the cooking surface cool to the touch. And because induction cooktops do not rely on coils or burners, they will not heat the air around the cooktop. Induction cooking is also much safer and more energy efficient than gas or electric cooking. If you are remodeling your kitchen and looking for new appliances , an induction cooktop could be a great place to start. The benefits of using an induction cooktop include:

    Faster Cook Times

    With induction cooktops, energy is supplied directly to the cooking vessel as soon as you are ready to being cooking. That means you don’t have to wait for an electric coil to heat up or finely adjust a flame burner; you simply get the heat you need, when you need it. In fact, induction cooktops reach selected heat levels up to 50% faster than gas or electric models. 

    Greater Control

    When you purchase luxury kitchen appliances, you expect them to provide greater convenience and control. Fortunately, a new induction cooktop from a high-end brand such as Sub-Zero will do just that. With the Wolf induction cooktop , you will have the control you need to perfectly distribute heat to all of your pots and pans. You can keep sauces and chocolates melted at 50 watts of power or activate Hi-Power mode and boil water in half the time you normally do, all with the touch of a finger.

    Easy to Clean

    Because induction cooktops do not rely on gas or electric heating elements, the surface remains relatively cool to the touch, so overflows and spills don’t stick or burn onto the cooktop. Even if you spend all day cooking a five-course meal on your cooktop, you can wipe it clean with a bit of soapy water in minutes.

  • Tips for Brewing the Perfect Cup of Coffee

    hot  coffee

    Whether you are having a hearty mug of coffee for breakfast, a cappuccino in the afternoon, or an espresso with dessert, the quality and flavor of your beverage is determined by the equipment as much as the coffee itself. For starters, purchase coffee as soon after it has been roasted as possible. Purchase coffee in small amounts so you can buy fresh beans every couple of weeks. As far as the specifics of making the coffee, use six ounces of water for every 1 or 2 tablespoons of ground coffee and keep the water temperature between 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit. If you are using a French press or drip system, the coffee will need approximately five minutes to brew.

    Of course, you could always purchase a Miele coffee system and have the perfect cup of coffee at the touch of button. Miele offers whole bean and coffee capsule models, and all of them can be mounted into your kitchen wall for seamless integration.

  • How to Choose the Perfect Vent Hood for Your Kitchen

    vent hood

    There are a few key appliances and features to consider when remodeling your kitchen or designing the kitchen of your dreams. One of the most important focal points of a large kitchen is the vent hood. In addition to improving the look and feel of your new kitchen, a vent hood is also responsible for capturing and removing smoke, odors, humidity, and heat at the source before they dissipate into the house. As you are shopping for new kitchen appliances and features, keep these following tips in mind to select the perfect vent hood.

    Consider Ducted or Non-Ducted

    One of the first things you will need to decide about your vent hood is whether you want a ducted or non-ducted model. Ducted vent hoods exhaust smoke, odor, humidity, and head outside of the home. Non-ducted vent hoods filter the air and then recirculate it back into the kitchen. The choice ultimately comes down to the style you are looking for, the type of range you have, and your budget.

    Choose an Appropriately Sized Vent Hood

    Vent hoods aren’t just decorations, but very functional and useful kitchen appliances. To ensure that your new vent hood performs as it should, it must be adequately sized and designed around the range. Ideally, a vent hood should cover the full width of the range and at least half of the front burners. If you do a lot of cooking, look for a vent hood that moves a lot of air, which is represented in CFMs (cubic feet per minute).

    Take the Design of Your Kitchen into Account

    The style and design of your vent hood will ultimately depend on the design of your kitchen. For example, if your kitchen is designed around a cooking island, you will need to look for a ceiling-mounted vent hood (also called “island hoods”). Custom built-in vent hoods are also available for homeowners interested in the seamless integration of kitchen appliances.

  • The Importance of Kitchen Ventilation

    wolf range hood

    When you are installing new, high-end appliances in your kitchen, it is essential to also ensure that your kitchen is properly ventilated. To achieve proper ventilation, your range top should be equipped with a range hood. A range hood contains an exhaust fan, which ventilates the heat, steam, and smoke created from cooking. With proper ventilation, cooking exhaust is vented out and away from your kitchen. If your kitchen is not properly ventilated, your cabinets and woodwork can suffer the damaging effects of excessive moisture and heat. In addition, proper kitchen ventilation ensures that your kitchen space remains at a comfortable temperature.

    To browse the range hood options available from Wolf, come to AUTCOhome Appliances . Our three locations in the St. Louis area offer a broad inventory of luxury Wolf ovens and ranges.
