stainless steel appliances


Kitchen and Laundry Will be Easier with Maytag

I have a busy family of four, and with two boys and one man in the house, we need all the help we can get in the kitchen and laundry room!

It continues to amaze me a) how much my three dudes eat, and b) how many clothes they go through. I spend most of my time in the kitchen, preparing meals for the family, and then often separate meals for myself since I am gluten and soy free.

Last week, Maytag launched a new line of kitchen appliances featuring a fingerprint-resistant stainless steel exterior, as well as an extra-large capacity laundry pair.

Kitchen Appliances

The new kitchen line will resist fingerprints and has the added bonus of being extremely easy to clean when streaks and smears from food do arise… you won’t have to wipe down the fridge daily due to sticky, greasy little fingers!

The new fingerprint-resistant finish will be available across the entire line of free standing stainless steel kitchen appliances including a Four Door Refrigerator, Top Control Pocket Handle Dishwasher and Front Control Range.

The new collection is as hardworking on the inside as it is good looking on the outside, with a number of powerful features across this new line of appliances, including:

PowerCold® option which quickly chills down the refrigerator with the touch of a button… I’m guilty of leaving the fridge door open while I’m cooking!

Power Preheat feature on the range that has your oven ready for cooking faster. Since we don’t use a microwave, this would come in handy for re-heating food for my hungry monsters.

PowerBlast® Cycle is a dishwasher feature that removes stuck-on food with high pressure spray jets, increased temperature and hot steam to keep my dishes looking sparkly and spot-free.

The refrigerator is especially a winner because of its middle drawer, convenient for storing drinks. The oven has an industrial feel, with the controls right in front, rather than taking up space in the back. And the dishwasher has powerful high pressure spray jets, giving dishes a proper clean… because who enjoys washing dishes by hand?!

Laundry Washer and Dryer

I’ll be in the market soon for a new washer/dryer, and absolutely love the look and feel of the Maytag® Top Load Washer and Dryer. I’m old school; not a big fan of the front load washers personally. The extra-large capacity of this washing machine means hefty loads can be washed in one cycle to save precious time and energy. They’re big enough to wash my sons’ hockey equipment!

The Extra Large Capacity Top Load Large Washer features:

The PowerWash® System using the PowerWash® cycle, PowerSpray, and optimal dispensers to deliver the best clean

Power™ Impeller which attacks stains with additional spray action that keeps clothes thoroughly saturated throughout the cycle. I can’t count how many of my kids’ shirts have permanent stains…

Extra-large capacity with 7.1 cu.ft.

The Extra-Large Capacity Dryer features:

The PowerDry system with the PowerDry cycle, Advanced Moisture Sensing, and an extra interior fin to keep clothes moving for effective drying. My current dryer usually clumps up the clothing, especially bed sheets, which means I have to run another cycle to ensure they’re properly dried.

Steam Refresh which reduces wrinkles by using a fine mist in the heated dryer drum to refresh clothes with steam as they tumble. This would come in handy for a quick re-fresh of one of my son’s hockey jersey!

Extra-large capacity; with 9.2 cu. ft., it has the space to dry 26 towels at once!

The Maytag® Top Load Washer and Dryer come with a 10-year limited parts warranty (on the drive motor and drum), which means they are built to last.

Having a Smudge-Proof Kitchen

What’s your least favourite chore in the kitchen?

Cleaning the stove? Fridge? Doing dishes? I dread wiping down kitchen cabinets and cleaning the kitchen fan.

Let’s just say that the only ‘chore’ I enjoy doing in the kitchen is cooking. Keeping the kitchen clean is a challenge when there always seems to be crumbs on the counter tops and a sink full of dishes.

I’m grateful to have a dishwasher and smudge-proof refrigerator – now if only my oven and dishwasher were also smudge-proof!

One problem with having stainless steel is the fingerprints and spill marks. They show up so easily on stainless steel appliances – but not anymore!

Since having my Frigidaire Gallery® French Door Bottom Mount refrigerator, I don’t have to buy stainless steel cleaner anymore. I can easily wipe down the fridge with a hot wet cloth and remove any dirt or spills.

It’s one less thing I need to do in the kitchen… and I will take anything that will decrease the amount of time I spend cleaning!

You need to see how it works so I’m doing the Living Proof of Smudge-Proof™ Challenge using mustard and ketchup on my Frigidaire Gallery® refrigerator.

With their patented Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel finish, Frigidaire Gallery® and Frigidaire Professional® stainless-steel appliances have a new anti-smudge technology that resists those little fingerprints and is easier to clean than traditional stainless steel surfaces.

Frigidaire® uses high-grade stainless steel coated with layers of polymers, resulting in a sleek, beautiful stainless steel finish that is both durable and resistant to fingerprints.

So I can enjoy having stainless steel but without the high maintenance of standard stainless steel.

Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel is available on all Frigidaire Gallery® and Frigidaire Professional® products – see the collection here.
