  • How to Tell That It’s Time to Upgrade Your Refrigerator

    When it comes to cooking with confidence in your dream kitchen, it’s essential to make sure that you have the best appliances to fit your needs. If you’ve had the same refrigerator for several years, you may be wondering if it’s time to upgrade to a new one. Here are a few signs which indicate that it’s time to visit your local luxury appliance showroom to find the perfect new refrigerator to fit your family’s needs.

    Poor Performance

    You should be able to rely on your refrigerator to run quietly, keep your food fresh, and operate without excessive heat or condensation. If your fridge has a hot, noisy motor, experiences condensation that allows for mold and mildew growth, or allows your food to spoil faster than it should, then it’s time to upgrade to a new luxury appliance. Don’t let worries over whether you’ll have fresh milk in the morning keep you up at night—instead, replace your poorly performing fridge with one that will deliver next-generation features and performance.

    High Energy Usage

    Refrigerators that are over 10 years old tend to be much less efficient than their modern counterparts. If you’re concerned that your old fridge is using excessive energy and driving your utility bills up each month, consider purchasing a new, high-efficiency refrigerator. Luxury refrigerators with the Energy Star seal will provide you with stellar performance using the least amount of energy possible, so you can minimize your carbon footprint and avoid wasting money on excessive energy use each month.

    Incompatibility with Your Lifestyle

    Even if you were in love with your current refrigerator when you first picked it out, it’s likely that your family’s needs have changed over time, and an upgraded refrigerator may fit better into your current lifestyle. If you need a fridge with a layout you can customize, professional-quality features, or simply more space to store your food, then it’s time to schedule an appointment with an appliance showroom to find a new model that will perfectly cater to your needs.

    At AUTCOhome Appliances, we understand how meaningful it can be to nourish your family with home-cooked meals that are a joy to create. That’s why we strive to ensure each customer can find luxury appliances for the kitchen of their dreams.

  • Solving Wine Storage Conundrums

    Have you ever opened a favorite bottle of fine wine, only to discover that the wine has spoiled? This is most likely due to improper storage. There are several wine storage mistakes many people make, but the good news is that there is a simple way to fix them all—by installing a high-quality wine fridge . Continue reading for a look at common wine storage problems and how a wine cooler can solve them.

    Storing It in Your Regular Refrigerator

    While it may seem like a simple solution to store your bottles of wine in your refrigerator, this is not an ideal option if you want to preserve each wine’s flavor. Refrigerators don’t have a designated area for bottles of wine, so the bottles must be stored upright—this allows the corks to dry out and shrink, letting air into the bottles. In addition, the temperature fluctuations that standard fridges experience can alter the flavor of the wine. A wine fridge will ensure that your wines are chilled to the appropriate temperature and stored in the best manner to preserve their flavors.

    Putting It in Your Freezer

    If you typically store your fine wines in a rack in your home, you may find yourself wanting to cool down a bottle quickly by sticking it in the freezer. This presents a few different problems. First, this will typically cool down your wine too much, which can affect your enjoyment when you do open the bottle. In addition, if you forget to retrieve your bottle in time, the wine may freeze and expand, causing the glass bottle to break. A better option is to enhance your luxury kitchen with a wine cooler so you’ll always have a bottle of wine chilled and ready to enjoy.

    Exposing It to Light or Incorrect Humidity Levels

    When a bottle of wine is left exposed to light, it changes the molecular structure of the wine, altering its flavors. Humidity levels are another common issue with wine storage—if the humidity is too low, it will allow the cork to dry out. If the humidity is too high, mold and mildew may grow on the bottle. Luxury wine coolers are designed to consistently maintain humidity at the right level for proper wine storage while protecting your bottles from excessive light exposure.

    If you’re ready to savor your favorite fine wines right in your own home, then it’s time to add a wine storage and preservation unit to your luxury kitchen. At AUTCOhome Appliances’ three appliance showrooms in the St. Louis area, we offer a range of appliances built with reliable craftsmanship and sleek designs. Our brand partners include Sub-Zero, Thermador, and other professional-quality brands. Learn more by calling (314) 373-2000.

  • Making the Most of Your Cast Iron Pan

    Have you heard that cast iron pans take a lot of work to use? There’s no need to be intimidated when using a cast iron pan to sear foods and make home-cooked meals for your family. This video clip offers a few tips to help you become familiar with using a cast iron pan on your professional-quality stovetop or in your high-performance oven.

    Seasoning your cast iron pan is an essential part of caring for it—this process gives the pan a protective layer of hardened oil. Be sure to let the pan heat up well before you add food to it. Use salt, water, and a scrubbing pad to clean your pan shortly after each use, and be sure to dry it completely before putting it away to prevent rust.
