Vintage Making a Comeback!

Here at Every Appliance Part, we are loving the look of vintage appliances in updated kitchens.  The traditional style appliances alongside today’s clean and contemporary fixtures really makes a kitchen pop.

What do you think about vintage styles? Would you bring a vintage appliance into your kitchen?

Let us know what you think!

It’s Electric!

Take a look around your house; I am assuming you have some sort of electronics around the room you are sitting in.  In my apartment there are TONS of electronics, seeing as how my boyfriend loves to play video games.  If you have electronics, this includes your microwaves and other appliances are you using a surge protector? If not you could be putting your electronics in for some danger.  You should always use a surge protector because it protects your electronics (mainly computers, TVs, etc.) from surges in power.  So you may be asking- “okay, I have no idea what that means…”  Let me start by telling you what a power surge is, in case you do not know, because I honestly had no clue what it actually was either. A power surge is a significant increase in voltage, or the flow of electricity, that goes above the normal household wiring voltage amount.  When the voltage goes about the amounted volts it can cause serious damage on the machine.  After a series of surges it can wear down the overloaded components in the electronic, causing it to simply not work.

               It is important that you buy surge protectors for electronics in your house to prevent any of that from happening.  As it happens my boyfriend has them all over the house so we are perfectly protected from any surges that come our way!  So instead of frying your expensive computer or electronic, invest in a surge protector for $9.45! Ten dollars is way cheaper than buying another $2,000.00 TV or computer!  I hope I helped to protect your electronics, and helped to keep money in your wallets! Come back again Wednesday for some more tips and trick in the appliance world.

Bring your Stainless Steel Back to Life!

     I absolutely love the sleek, clean, and refined look of stainless steel in my kitchen.  I like how modern it makes my kitchen look and feel.  There are some downfalls to having stainless steel appliances in the kitchen though.  I feel like I am always cleaning my refrigerator, but that is fine because I use Affresh stainless steel cleaner in the spray and wipes for a quick and easy clean!  But the real problem I face with my stainless steel fridge is the scratches!  I try to be careful not to scratch it, but come on; while I am cooking I am constantly going in and out of the fridge using my hip to shut the door. So there are a few small and bigger scratches down the side of my fridge.

               I have tried to use the cosmetic wipes and “fillers” that claim the scratches will be gone. But they have only left me disappointed and wasting money.  I really wanted to have a product that would actually fix these scratches not just cover them up to look like they are gone.  At work I did some research, and to my surprise I found a great kit that fixes scratches and scrapes for stainless steel appliances! The name of the kit said it all, Scratch-B-Gone, I was so excited when I found this!  This kit comes with everything you need to fix your appliances with ease and relief knowing your appliance will look great!  I was pretty amazed when I received the kit and read that not only will this take scratches off but it will also get rust off.  I was amazed, is this kit magical? I think so.  I was excited to take it home and give it a try over the weekend. 

               I got a bit overwhelmed when I opened the package to find a lot of things in there that I had no idea how to use.  But thanks to GE they inserted a CD that gives you instructions on how to use each thing in the kit. Phew! So I listened to the CD and got to work, and in no time my fridge was beginning to look like new again! My level of happiness soared when I saw how great it looked, and I felt accomplished knowing that I did it myself! It was an easy process, and I would definitely use this again in the summer when it is time to clean out the grill! So take a look at your appliances now, see any scratches? Then this kit is right for you! Have fun with your appliances, and remember there is always something out there to help keep your appliances looking and running like new! Come back this week to see the part of the week, and a new recipe on Friday to try over the weekend!

Harlem Shake – Every Appliance Part Edition

While roaming the never ending things online the other week, I stumbled upon the viral video craze of the “Harlem Shake” videos. When I first played it I thought to myself, “what did I just watch?” So I took another try and watched it again, its just a single person dancing alone to the Harlem Shake song and then as soon as the beat drops a whole group of people appear and they are all dancing. It was pretty funny to see some of these costumes people were wearing. Now I know you are thinking this blog doesn’t relate to anything appliance related today… but it does! Some of the marketing team at Every Appliance Part decided that they wanted to make their very own Harlem Shake video in the office. They had a lot of fun making it, and it was a good way to get the office together. So to all my readers check out our version of the Harlem Shake video and come back this week for some updates on appliance parts!

Stop throwing out your vegetables!

I have a pet peeve of letting food go to waste.  Unfortunately it happens a lot, especially with fruits and vegetables that I buy.  My boyfriend does not like fruits or vegetables, so it is always just me that eats them.  When I go shopping, I keep this in mind and only buy what I know I will be able to eat within a week or two.  But it seemed that I could never eat the food fast enough and I would always end up with wilted lettuce, and rotting fruits and vegetables.  I tried to store them in different kind of containers, and freezer bags.  This seemed to help, but only saved them for a day or two more.

I could not take it anymore, I thought to myself- “I work for an appliance parts company, there has to be something out there that helps food last longer.”  I went to work the next day and asked around. As it turns out I was right, there is something out there that helps preserve produce!  Whirlpool makes another great product called Fresh Flow Produce Preserver.  They have a great starter kit, and then also sell refills for it.  We sell this product at work for only $12.99! I thought that was a great deal, because if it does work I will be saving more than $12.99 and I will no longer be wasting food or money. To me that is the greatest deal of all.

I looked up how and why this preserver works before I made my purchase.  While I was researching, I learned that fruits and vegetables give off a natural ethylene gas as they begin to ripen.  But as they naturally give off this gas, it makes the produce ripen more quickly, especially when in a small space (like the crisper drawer in the fridge).  It turns out that some fruits and vegetables produce more of this gas, and some other fruits and vegetables are very sensitive to this gas and it will cause them to ripen much faster when exposed to high levels. That is why it is also important to separate these fruits into the two separate crisper drawers.  The produce preserver promises to absorb the ethylene gas and lets your produce last up to four days longer.

After doing my research on the product, I was almost convinced that this would work, and I was ready to give it a try.  I purchased the starter kit that day at work.  When I arrived home I took a look at my crisper drawer; I just went grocery shopping so all of the produce was still fresh. This was perfect because now I could truly see how well this preserver worked!  It was very easy to install and put together.  The starter kit comes with two preserver packets, one preserver holder, and one status indicator.  All you need to do is open the holder and place the packet inside, next take the indicator and slide it into the allotted slot on top of the holder.  The preserver holder just sticks right onto the side of the drawer, and begins to work.  The strip is right on top and turns red as it absorbs the gas to let you know when to change the packets.  The only complaint that I had about it was how much space it took up in the drawer- but it isn’t even that much- so I got over it really fast. Ha-Ha-Ha.

I was truly happy and amazed how well this preserver worked!! My produce did last so much longer and my fruits and vegetables tasted great even five days later.  I got to finish all the produce I bought without having to throw any of it out! This made me ecstatic, because I wasn’t left feeling guilty, throwing any of it out and wasting money!!!  So for $12.99 for the starter kit and then just $9.99 for 2 refills I am going to keep using it and save money and food.  Overall I would and have suggested it to my family and friends. I suggest my readers should pick one up! Especially if you are tired of wasting food, and money!
