Monument Grill Review – 4-Burner with LED Controls

I live in Florida where the weather tears up grills and finding replacement parts every couple of years seems to be the law of the land. Previously, I lived near the ocean in South Carolina. Want to store your grill out on the deck? Fine—it will last you a year. While the longevity of grills […]

Tools in the Kitchen: Gourmia Waffle Maker and Deep Fryer

We spend most of our time on power tools, but invariably all of the work has a purpose. Many times, that purpose ends up being the redesign or remodel of a kitchen or bathroom.

Bosch Induction Range Review – HIIP054U

Not too long ago we did an article on building with premium appliances. At the heart of that kitchen were the Bosch B21CL81SNS French Door refrigerator and the new HIIP054U Bosch Induction Range.

We recently converted a 1400 square foot bungalow home in downtown Lakeland to a rental. This 3/1 home was perfect for a small family.

The water filter system includes the Franke cold water faucet, an […]

Franke Pull Down Kitchen Faucet Fast-in

Franke Pull Down Kitchen Faucet Review with Fast-In

Since we took the time to do a Franke Fast-In sink review, installing a Franke pull down kitchen faucet seemed appropriate. After all, you can’t install a high-quality stainless steel sink and then slap your old faucet back in place. An upgrade seemed appropriate. We chose the Franke Bern FF20750 pull-down kitchen faucet for our evaluation. […]

Hands-on Franke Fast-In Sink Review

When you’ve installed or remodeled several kitchens, eventually you begin looking for ways to improve your process. For the professional, time is money. That’s why Franke Fast-In sinks and Fast-In faucets first appealed to us. In the process of installing a new sink or faucet, any time savings turns into an advantage. We did this Franke Fast-In sink review to […]

Bosch Home Connect App for Appliances

We got a close up look at the new Bosch Home Connect app for appliances. The system lets you control compatible Bosch home appliances using your smartphone or tablet. Since the system works on the cloud, you can even use it when not at home. The system is informative. Like the Toolbox app used for Bosch connected […]
