• Selecting the Right Kitchen Cooktop Appliance for Your Needs

    Wolf electric cooktop

    Your choice of kitchen cooktop has far-reaching effects for the comfort and functionality of your kitchen . Whether you cook often or only on occasion, choosing the right cooktop appliance for your needs will ensure a pleasant experience when preparing any meal. Keep reading to discover a few of the important factors to consider when selecting the right cooktop for your home’s needs.


    Cooktop appliances are available in a wide range of sizes. When selecting the appliance that is right for you, consider how many burners and how much stovetop space you’d like. Larger stovetops can accommodate larger pots, pans, and griddles, and may incorporate more burners. These appliances are great for large families or those who like to host dinner parties and must accommodate a number of guests.


    Cooktop appliances are available in either gas or electric models. While modern electric stoves are quite advanced, many people still prefer to use a gas stove because these appliances can heat up faster and maintain a more consistent temperature than their electric counterparts. However, if you don’t currently have a gas line set up in your kitchen but would like to purchase a gas cooktop, keep in mind that you’ll need to install a gas line and should budget accordingly.


    Your budget can play a role in your ultimate appliance selection. During most kitchen remodels, appliances require up to 20% of the total budget. However, even a limited budget doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the luxury appliances you want. Choosing appliances that feature the ENERGY STAR label means you’ll spend less to power your cooktop over the long term, making up the cost of the appliance in utility savings.

    Regardless of your cooktop needs and preferences, AUTCOhome Appliances today and Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome has the perfect appliance for you. Our inventory of high-end ENERGY STAR-qualified kitchen appliances includes Wolf, Thermador, GE, Electrolux, and more—call (314) 373-2000 or (636) 224-4038 to reach us today .

    This video offers step-by-step instructions for cleaning your refrigerator. Start by removing all the food items, then clean all the surfaces in your fridge with hot, soapy water and a scrubbing sponge. Dry each surface after washing it to prevent mildew growth inside the appliance.

  • How a Sub-Zero Wine Storage System Can Improve Your Wine Cellar

    SubZero wine storage

    Do you love enjoying a delicious bottle of wine with family and friends? Wine’s taste can be adversely affected by even small environmental changes over time, diminishing the quality of your investment. Sub-Zero wine storage options, available at AUTCOhome Appliances and Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome, incorporate a variety of features designed to maintain the taste of each bottle so you can enjoy the perfect glass of wine every time.

    Temperature Control

    The ideal storage temperature for red wines is 65 degrees Fahrenheit. This is much cooler than the typical room temperature of 70 degrees, but much warmer than the temperature inside your refrigerator. However, storing your wine at the ideal temperature meets only half the requirements to maintain its taste. In addition to storage at a cooler temperature, wine also needs to be kept at a consistent temperature. Sub-Zero wine storage appliances are designed to minimize temperature variations, keeping your wines at the correct temperature regardless of sunlight and other factors in your home.

    Light Control

    Ultraviolet radiation from sunlight—even indirect sunlight—can prematurely age your wine, affecting its quality. Premature aging affects every aspect of wine, including color, taste, and bouquet. Sub-Zero appliances feature UV-resistant glass with a bronze tint that not only protects your wine from harmful radiation and premature aging, it adds cosmetic appeal to your wine storage solution as well.

    Humidity Control

    Too little or too much humidity can affect the corks in your wine bottles, breaking their seal or causing cork to crumble into the liquid. High humidity can also affect the labels on your bottles, making it difficult to keep inventory. Sub-Zero’s line of wine storage solution regulates internal humidity as well as temperature to keep your bottles at their best, both inside and out.

    If you’d like more information about Sub-Zero’s full line of high-end wine storage appliances, call AUTCOhome Appliances at (314) 373-2000 or Construction Appliance by AUTCOhome at (636) 224-4038. We are pleased to offer the finest in luxury appliances throughout Missouri. Visit our website for more appliance features and food storage information.

  • A Look at the Most Popular Types of Refrigerators

    SubZero Refrigerator

    Your refrigerator is one of the most important appliances in your kitchen . These appliances typically last 15-20 years before requiring replacement, making your choice of refrigerator an important one for the style and efficiency of your kitchen for years to come. There are many popular styles of refrigerators available, each with features that offer various benefits.

    All Refrigerator

    One of the most cost-effective and energy-efficient refrigerator options is one that does not feature an attached freezer. These appliances can be ideal for your needs if you have limited kitchen space, don’t need to store frozen goods, or prefer to utilize a stand-alone freezer for frozen items. A refrigerator without a freezer offers the greatest storage capacity inside because the appliance’s entire volume is dedicated to refrigeration space.

    Top- and Bottom-Mount Refrigerators

    Top-mount and bottom-mount refrigerators include a refrigerator with a separate freezer section above (top-mount) or below (bottom-mount) the refrigerated space. Although these appliances have more limited space for refrigerated food storage, they put frozen items within easy reach. Top-mount refrigerators use slightly less energy, while bottom-mount refrigerators put more frequently-used foods at eye level by storing frozen items used less often at ground level. Bottom-mount refrigerators often feature larger freezer compartments with drawers or racks for easy storage and access.

    French Door Refrigerator

    French door refrigerators are similar to bottom-mount refrigerators but feature a double door design for easier access to refrigerated goods. The freezer section below is still closed off by a single door. By opening only one of the refrigerator’s double doors, you can reduce the escape of cold air from the interior for superior temperature control. French door refrigerators typically represent the higher end of refrigerator models, offering convenience, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal.
