choosing the perfect electric range

When choosing an electric range for your kitchen, you will have many, many options. There are three main types of electric ranges for you to choose from. Do you know what they are? I created this blog after spending months researching different products and choosing the perfect range for my kitchen. I wanted a stove that would be efficient, nice looking and that would last several years with very little maintenance. It is my hope that my months of research will help you find the range for your kitchen with fewer steps and less time in the decision making process.

2 Important Factors To Consider When Buying A New Grill


A grill is a key part of any outdoor space. Not only does it allow you to prepare meals to conserve space and reduce the mess indoors, but it also allows you to entertain and relax with friends and family outdoors. Buying a new grill can be a large expense, but with the right grill, you will be making a smart investment. Here are a few things to consider when it is time to invest in a new grill.

Charcoal, Fuel, or Electricity

One of the first things you need to decide is how the grill will function. Today, you may be surprised by how many options are available.

Charcoal is one of the most common options because it is pretty standard. Basically, a charcoal grill creates heat by burning charcoal. This creates a good amount of heat that can char food quickly if you are not careful. In addition, cooking on charcoal creates a distinct taste that many people enjoy.

If you prefer less mess, consider a gas grill. Fuel can be supplied via an underlying gas line that is connected to a propane tank or natural gas supply. Or, the gas grill can be fueled by a smaller propane tank connected to your grill. Cooking on gas is efficient and pretty simple in most cases.

It is important to note that some gas grills require electricity. For example, if the gas grill has lights or electric ignitors, the gas grill will need to be connected to an outdoor electrical source.

There are also indoor/outdoor grills that are powered solely by electricity. These grills are usually smaller and movable, allowing you to transport them easily.

Size/Cooking Space

The size of your grill or the amount of cooking space is also an important factor to consider.

When determining how much space you need, focus on the number of people you may entertain and prepare meals for at one time. Or, if you will cook larger pieces of meat, such as whole hogs, briskets, or pork shoulders.

While there may be a top rack, the space of this rack is not necessarily used for cooking-warming only. Therefore, the main grate and the space it offers will be your primary focus.

Make sure the main grate offers enough space where you can cook multiple pieces of meat and vegetables while still leaving about ½ inch of space between each piece of food. This ensures you cook everything evenly without crowding the grill.

Finding the right grill for your home and family's needs does not have to be a challenging. With this guide, you can shop for your perfect grill with ease.
