Kitchen Appliance Buying Guide

With a huge number of kitchen appliances to select from the choice can be bewildering. To narrow it down it's usual to use such factors as brand, price point and experience. However, there's been an explosion of brands in recent years. Long gone are the days when it was Fisher and Paykel, Westinghouse and Vulcan. The increased choice does though, provide the opportunity to find products that suit our needs at affordable prices rather than having to compromise on features versus price.


Cooktops Buying Guide

Rangehoods Buying Guide

Most of us prefer to have a well ventilated kitchen and so we need a device for extracting the cooking fumes and odours from the cooktop. Many rangehoods also come with re-circulating ability which, with the addition of a carbon filter, can remove grease and smells from the air. Without air extraction or an effective filter, oils from cooking will be distributed around the house leaving a sticky and smelly residue that attracts dust and dirt.
