  1. Your Guide to Buying a New Kitchen Range

    Your Guide to Buying a New Kitchen Range

    The range combines a cooktop and oven into a single appliance—making it the true workhorse of the kitchen. Ranges come in a variety of styles and can include all kinds of features, which is great, but can also be overwhelming. At Reno’s Appliance, we’re range experts, so we’ve created this simple buying guide to help you find the ideal one for your home.

    1. What’s Your Budget?

      First, you should determine how much you want to spend. Prices can vary from about $350 for a basic range to $3500 or more for luxury models with plenty of features and high-end styling. Having a price point in mind will help you narrow down your options.

    2. What Size?

      A standard range is 30 inches wide, but they can be 36 inches or wider. Be sure to measure the space where you want to install it and buy the correct size. The last thing you want is to have your range delivered only to find that it won’t fit.

    3. Do You Want Gas or Electric?

      If you don’t have a gas line already installed in your kitchen, then an electric model is your only option. If you do have a gas line, then you can get a gas-powered or a dual fuel range. Dual fuel range models heat the oven with electric power for precise temperatures, and fuel the cooktop with gas for faster boiling and cooking.

    4. What Style?

      There are three different styles of ranges:

      • Freestanding models are designed to be placed anywhere in the kitchen. These are the most popular and least expensive ranges.
      • Slide-ins are made to literally “slide in” between cabinets. The sides of a slide-in range are left unfinished since they won’t be seen, but they do have alignment grooves for ease of installation.
      • Drop-ins are used with customized cabinetry. They are dropped into the prepared base with a cabinet front panel at the bottom for seamless integration with the kitchen and a high-end look.

    5. Do You Want to Go Pro?

      Pro ranges are typically free-standing models that start at 36 inches wide, but come in 48 inch and 60 inch widths as well to accommodate multiple ovens, more burners, and built-in griddles and grills that span the cooktop. You’ll also find different burner configurations and well as French tops in pro models for more precise temperature control. If you want to take your cooking to the next level, then consider a pro range.

    6. Who Cleans the Oven?

      Are you OK with cleaning the oven yourself, or do you prefer a self-cleaning oven? Self-cleaning ovens cost a bit more, but most people decide the extra cost is worth it.

    7. Have Your Considered Convection?

      You may have heard the term convection oven. That means there is a fan inside the unit that distributes heat more evenly in the oven to speed up cooking and produce more consistent results. It will cost an additional amount if you opt for a convection oven.

    8. How Many Burners?

      The least expensive ranges have four standard burners on the cooktop. As you get into higher end models, you’ll find burners that are more precise and flexible. For example, your range might come with a “power burner” for quick boiling and pan searing. It may also have a “low burner” for simmering sauces. Some ranges may even have a fifth burner.

    9. What Features Will You Need?

      Now you have to decide which features are important to you. Adding features will increase the price, but you may find it is worth every penny. Some features you might consider include double ovens, “smart” temperature sensors, warming drawers, or a hidden bake element.

    10. How Do You Want to Control Your Range?

      You’ll also have a decision to make when it comes to how your range is controlled. Are you fine with the standard cooktop knobs and oven controls? Or do you want your unit to be more sophisticated? For example, you can get a unit that’s all digital and push-button, or maybe even programmable.

    One increasing popular feature found in higher-end ranges is voice control. For example, this GE Profile Range will respond to simple voice commands for the ultimate convenience.

    Reno’s Appliance carries top-of-the-line electric and gas ranges from brands like Bosch, Wolf, GE, Amana, and Samsung. When it comes time for you to pick out a new range, stop by our showroom in Paterson, NJ to view our selection.

  2. 4 Tips for Finding the Perfect Kitchen Faucet

    4 Tips for Finding the Perfect Kitchen Faucet

    Whether you’re giving your kitchen a complete overhaul, or simply updating the décor, installing a new kitchen faucet is certainly going to be part of the job. If it’s been a while since you last shopped for a faucet, and you’re not sure where to begin, then check out these four tips to help you find the perfect one for your space.

    1. Mounting Matters

      First, decide if you want a deck-mount faucet or a wall-mount faucet. Wall-mount faucets attach through the wall and hang over the sink.

      Deck-mount faucets attach to the countertop or rest on the sink. If you choose this type, then the number of holes on your sink is important. These are your standard options:

      • Combination handle/spout faucets require a single hole, plus an additional hole for the sprayer.
      • Handle/spout faucets with integrated sprayers require a single hole.
      • Traditional faucets need four holes total: one each for the hot and cold taps, one for the spout, and a fourth for the sprayer.

      If you want to add soap dispensers, instant hot water dispensers, water filters, or other optional components, then you’ll need more holes. If you’re starting from scratch, choose your faucet before your sink so you can buy a sink with the appropriate number of holes for your selection. Or, holes may be drilled into the sink to accommodate your faucet if needed.

    2. Focus on the Finish

      Most kitchen faucets come in a range of finish choices, typically some color of metal. In the silver family, options include chrome, nickel, stainless steel, platinum, and pewter. For a warmer tone, you can try brass, gold, bronze, or copper. Metallic finishes can be either polished, brushed, or satin, depending on whether you want a bold shine or a more muted gleam.

      If you’ve picked out your kitchen sink, then you obviously want your faucet to match. Easy decision. But if you haven’t picked out the sink, consider that smudges and stains show up on chrome and polished finishes more easily than brushed and satin finishes. That may be a factor in your decision.

    3. Consider Ultra Low Flow

      If you’re environmentally focused, or want to save on water bills, this may be important to you. Since 1992, federal regulations require that faucets made in the United States have a maximum flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute (GPM), which has resulted in thousands and thousands of gallons of water saved each year.

      But, you can choose to have an even lower flow rate. In 2008, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) started the WaterSense program to encourage the manufacture of high-efficiency faucets with a flow rate of 1.5 GPM or less. While not a federal regulation, most manufacturers have products that meet WaterSense criteria, so be sure to ask your salesperson if this interests you.

    4. Take a Look at Technology Trends

      If you haven’t bought a faucet in a long time, then you’re probably not aware of all the cool new faucet features out there, like:

      • Motion-activation: Motion-activated faucets enable you to turn the water on and off, adjust the flow, and raise or lower the temperature,
      • Laminar flow: Laminar technology emits water in a clear, solid stream for a smooth and silky feel and no splashing. It feels luxurious, but laminar-flow faucets still meet federal water flow standards, with some models even meeting the stricter WaterSense criteria.
      • Filtration and more: Many manufacturers make faucets that offer built-in filtration, instant chilling, and even carbonation for clean, cold, sparkling water on demand.

    Shopping for a new kitchen faucet doesn’t have to be a daunting task. Follow these tips and you’re sure to find the perfect faucet.

    Reno’s Appliance carries a large selection of kitchen faucets from industry-leading brands like Insinkerator, Franke, Rohl, and more. Stop by our showroom in Paterson, NJ to view our selection.

  3. Boost Your Home’s Value By Upgrading Kitchen Appliances

    Boost Your Home’s Value By Upgrading Kitchen Appliances

    If you’re looking for a home improvement project that will increase the value of your home, but won’t take up top much of your time, start with upgrading your kitchen appliances. Experts agree that installing high-quality appliances that are functional and stylish will get you the most return on your investment when it’s time to sell.

    Here are some tips to help you choose appliances that you, and potential homebuyers, will love.

    Think Timeless Style
    If you’ve got all-white appliances that look like they are from a bygone era, then it will be difficult to maximize your asking price. Choose stainless steel or black appliances instead for a sleek, contemporary look that never goes out of style.

    Or, consider appliances that can be concealed behind cabinetry. With this current design trend, refrigerators, dishwashers, and even range hoods can seemingly disappear, for a truly cohesive look that is sure to impress homebuyers.

    Try to avoid purchasing appliances with bold finishes such as bright colors or patterns if your purpose is to up your home’s resale value. Potential homebuyers may be turned off by a design aesthetic they don’t like.

    Enhance Energy Efficiency
    Kitchen appliances account for a large percentage of the typical home’s total energy use. So when it’s time to upgrade, choose energy-efficient appliances that are marked with the Energy Star logo, like this Whirlpool dishwasher and GE refrigerator. These appliances will cost more up front, but you’ll see lower energy bills—and higher bids from potential homebuyers.

    Go for Fun and Functional Features
    Appliances with extra features are appealing to homebuyers. Just make sure they’re not just expensive add-ons, but will truly simplify life in the kitchen. For example:

    Adding on the Extras
    If you’ve gotten your major appliances taken care of and you’ve still got some room in your budget, then there are some extras that can be worth the investment. For example, garbage disposals and trash compactors are appliances that potential homebuyers often don’t know they want until they see a home that has them. If you’re in a more high-end market, then installing a wine refrigerator can be a nice touch that adds a bit of elegance to the home.

    Remember, unless you’re truly in the high-end market, you don’t need to overspend on luxury appliances. You’re better off purchasing durable appliances with timeless style and practical features. When you are ready to upgrade your kitchen appliances, come to Reno’s Appliance. Reno’s has a large selection of kitchen appliances to choose from including:

    Reno’s Appliance was founded in 1951 as Reno’s Radio & TV. Since then, the shop has grown to become the one-stop home appliance source trusted by thousands. Reno’s sons continue to carry on the tradition set forth by their father and exhibit exceptional customer service. We have every home appliance you will possibly need.

  4. 7 Dishwasher Myths You Can Stop Believing

    7 Dishwasher Myths You Can Stop Believing

    Dishwashers are not exactly new inventions, but for some reason, there are still many misconceptions surrounding them. Maybe, once upon a time, there were certain tips or tricks that helped your parents or grandparents get the most out of their dishwashers, but most of that is irrelevant today. It’s time to bust these seven dishwasher myths once and for all.

    Myth #1: You need to pre-rinse.
    Unless there’s really large pieces of food still stuck to the plate or a baking dish, there’s no need to pre-rinse. In fact, pre-rinsing can do more harm than good. If you rinse the dishes too much, then there’s nothing for the detergent to work on, so dishes are more likely to get scratched and chipped.

    Myth #2: There are different ways you can load a dishwasher.
    Some might say they know the best way to load a dishwasher. Others might claim it doesn’t really matter how you load it. They’re all wrong. Here’s the ideal way to load your dishwasher:

    • Top rack—Place cups and glasses between the tines of the top rack. Load bowls at an angle. All dishwasher-safe plastic belongs on the top rack as well.
    • Bottom rack—Plates, pans, and larger items should go on the bottom rack.
    • Third rack—If you have a third rack on your dishwasher then this is where you’ll put tall cooking utensils, spatulas, large knives. If you don’t have a third rack, then put these items on the top rack facing down.

    Myth #3: Dishwashers damage flatware.
    It’s definitely OK to put flatware in your dishwasher. That’s why there’s a basket specifically for your utensils. Place forks and spoons in the basket with handles pointing down. Knives can go there as well, but make sure the blades are pointing down and the handles are pointing up.

    Myth #4: You can put any dish or utensil in there.
    Just like certain items of clothing don’t belong in your washing machine, there are certain kitchen items that should never go into your dishwasher. Good knives, fine china, ceramic cookware, wooden cutting boards, crystal glasses, sterling silver, and silver-plated items can be damaged in the dishwasher and therefore, should always be washed by hand.

    Myth #5: Rinsing agents are completely unnecessary.
    Rinsing agents are actually very useful. They prevent spots and streaks by enabling water to rinse completely away from the dishes.

    Myth #6: All detergents are the same.
    Gels, powders, tablets, pods, liquids—there’s seemingly no end to the variety of dishwasher detergents out there. They all claim to be the best, of course, but studies show that powder tablets out-clean them all, especially when it comes to really tough loads.

    Myth #7: The dishwasher and kitchen sink have different drain pipes.
    This is simply not true. Your dishwasher drains into the same pipes as your kitchen sink. So a clogged sink drain will affect your dishwasher as well. And if you have a garbage disposal, make sure that’s completely clear of debris before you run the dishwasher.

    Of course, the best way to get clean dishes is to start with a high-quality dishwasher. Reno’s Appliances is proud to carry an extensive inventory of world-class brands that are known for dependability and durability like Frigidaire, Bosch, Whirlpool, and many others. Plus, we have portable dishwashers, which are perfect for small spaces.

  5. 5 Ways to Incorporate Range Hoods Into Your Kitchen Re-Design

    5 Ways to Incorporate Range Hoods Into Your Kitchen Re-Design

    Most people tend to think about range hoods in practical terms because they are, in fact, very practical appliances. With just the simple flick of a switch, smoke, odors, and airborne grease from your stove are whisked out of your home. But, also consider that your range hood is often the focal point of your kitchen. There’s no reason that your range hood can’t be functional and stylish all at once.

    Let’s look at five of the most popular trends in range hood design that we see popping up in kitchens across the United States. Consider some of these ideas when it’s time to remodel your kitchen.

    1. Simply Modern

      If you love the modern design aesthetic, then choose a range hood that’s simple and subtly blends in with the rest of the kitchen. A stainless steel finish is a good choice because it looks professional and is always in style. Plus, it’s durable and easy to clean.

      This Amana range hood, with its sharp angles and geometric shape is an excellent example of a sleek and modern design. Or check out this model, also from Amana, that incorporates glass for a truly unique and high-end look.

    2. Creatively Colorful

      There’s nothing that says you can’t have some fun with color in your kitchen. Many designers are encouraging clients to use a neutral color palette on the walls and floors of their kitchens, and saving bold color statements for the appliances. For example, you can start with this cherry-red range hood and add a stove and refrigerator to match. This is a chance for your range hood to shine, while making a bold yet elegant statement throughout the kitchen.

    3. Hidden (“Insert”) Hoods

      Perhaps you don’t want to showcase your range hood, but keep it hidden instead. That’s when you want to choose hood liners or inserts. These allow you combine powerful ventilation with the custom exterior treatment you want. They’re perfect for when you want to hide your hood behind an intricate and beautiful exterior. Or, have it blend in with the existing cabinetry for a seamless and cohesive look throughout the kitchen.

    4. Neat and Narrow

      One of the most recent trends in range hoods is the narrow, low profile hood. These hoods look like thin strips of metal that are mounted above the stove. This is the ideal option if you want to maintain an open and airy feeling in your kitchen, or you want your backsplash to be the focal point of the kitchen. This low-profile hood from Jenn-Air is the perfect example.

    5. Downdraft Design

      But what if you don’t want a range hood at all? You don’t want to minimize it or even hide it—you simply don’t want it. That’s where downdraft ventilation technology comes in. Downdraft ventilation is a type of ventilation built into cooktops and kitchen ranges that pulls cooking fumes and smoke downward and out, instead of being sucked up and out. There’s no need for a range hood with a downdraft cooktop, so it allows room for extra cabinets where you would typically place a range hood.

      This Jenn-Air stove is an example of downdraft ventilation that’s built right into the cooktop. Other stoves, like this Wolf, have rear-mounted downdraft ventilation.

    These are just five of the emerging trends in range hood style and design, and all are easy to incorporate into your kitchen. Not sure where to begin? You can start by checking out Reno’s Appliance’s extensive inventory of world-class brands of range hoods like Bosch, Broan, Zephyr, and many others. Plus, we have all the range hood accessories you need for your kitchen.

  6. 5 Steps to Perfect Refrigerator Organization

    5 Steps to Perfect Refrigerator Organization

    Most people might not give much thought to how they stock their refrigerators. After all, as long as the perishables are cold, and the frozen stuff stays frozen, then everything’s good, right? Well, it turns out that there’s a bit more to it than that.

    Temperatures can vary throughout different areas of the refrigerator. For example, upper shelves tend to be warmer than bottom shelves. And door shelves are warmer than deli compartments. Keeping this in mind when loading your fridge can help food last longer, reduce the risk of food borne illnesses, and may even help your refrigerator run more efficiently.

    Here’s a simple step-by-step guide that takes the guesswork out of organizing your refrigerator.

    Step 1: The Door
    Temperatures of door bins and shelves tend to be two or three degrees higher than the main compartment. That’s too warm for milk, eggs, and other highly perishable items. Instead, reserve the door for items that can handle warmer conditions, such as:

    • Butter
    • Condiments
    • Juice
    • Cooking oils
    • Soda
    • Water

    Step 2: The Deli Bin
    This storage option may be found beneath the crisper drawers of French-door refrigerators, or as a separate drawer that hangs below the top shelf in other types of refrigerators. It’s a helpful feature, especially if the temperature can be adjusted to best accommodate a range of foods. Here are the items that belong in the deli bin:

    • Deli meat
    • Bacon
    • Cheese
    • Hot dogs

    Step Three: The Crisper Drawers
    Crisper drawers are designed for produce. On many refrigerators, the humidity of the drawers can be adjusted. Keep the humidity high on one drawer to store leafy greens and other vegetables that wilt easily. Keep the humidity low on the second drawer for fruits that tend to like dryer air. If you can’t adjust the humidity of the drawers then still try to keep vegetables and fruits separated in these categories:

    Low-Humidity Drawer

    • Apples
    • Grapes
    • Mushrooms
    • Cucumbers
    • Peppers
    • Ripe stone fruits (peaches, plums, nectarines)
    • Summer squash

    High-Humidity Drawer

    • Leafy greens
    • Broccoli
    • Cauliflower
    • Green onions
    • Carrots

    Step Four: The Lower Shelf
    The lower shelf tends to be the coldest part of the refrigerator, so it’s ideal for items that are more susceptible to developing harmful bacteria like eggs, milk, and raw meat, fish, and poultry. And remember that any meat, fish, or poultry you don’t plan on consuming within 24 hours should be wrapped in a freezer safe bag and stored in the freezer.

    Step Five: The Upper Shelf
    The upper shelf tends to be the warmest part of the refrigerator, making it the best for these items:

    • Jams and Jellies
    • Nut butters
    • Yogurt
    • Hummus, salsa, and other dips
    • Leftovers

    Refrigerator Restriction

    Now that you know what goes where in the fridge, you should also be aware of which foods don’t belong in the fridge in the first place, such as:

    • Bananas
    • Bread (storing bread in the freezer is fine)
    • Coffee
    • Garlic
    • Onions
    • Potatoes
    • Tomatoes

    Also, keep in mind that you should avoid overloading your refrigerator. Stuffing your fridge full of food may prevent cool air from flowing freely throughout the unit. As a result, your refrigerator may run less efficiently and food may spoil faster.

    Having the right kind of refrigerator that fits your family’s lifestyle is also something to consider. Reno’s has a large selection of refrigerators to choose from, including bottom-freezer, top-freezer, side-by-side, and French door models from trusted brands like Sub-Zero, GE, and Whirlpool. We also have a large inventory of compact refrigerators that are perfect for dorm rooms and for smaller spaces, plus all the replacement parts and accessories you might need for your refrigerator.

    Reno’s Appliance was founded in 1951 as Reno’s Radio & TV. Since then, the shop has grown to become the one-stop home appliance source trusted by thousands. Reno’s sons continue to carry on the tradition set forth by their father and exhibit exceptional customer service. We have every home appliance you will possibly need.

  7. A New Way to Cook: Wolf’s Convection Steam Oven

    A New Way to Cook: Wolf’s Convection Steam Oven

    If you love to cook, your oven might just be your best friend. However, your typical conventional or convection oven can only do so much to keep your highly anticipated meal from drying out and losing flavor. Luckily for you, the prestigious kitchen suppliers, Sub-Zero and Wolf, have introduced their Convection Steam Oven by Wolf. Once you cook with one, there’s no going back.

    The Convection Steam Oven, as hinted by its name, adds steam to the cooking process, while offering a convection setting when necessary. Original steam ovens lacked the convection setting offered by Wolf, allowing for less variety in the cooking process. Now you can combine the health and flavor benefits of a steam oven with the even, quick cooking of a convection oven. Plus, each unit is installed with a unique digital technology that is able to sense the amount and size of the food you are cooking and will self-adjust for optimum results. Cooking has never been so easy!

    Begin the cooking process with steam to keep food vibrant, hydrated, and rich in vitamins and minerals. Did you know that steaming vegetables can help them retain up to 22% more vitamins than traditional oven cooking? These ovens will work perfectly with anyone trying to keep a healthy lifestyle without worrying about the time needed for added efforts. Plus, you don’t need to enhance the flavor with any extra fats or oils. Then, if you are cooking something like a soufflé or bread, switch on the convection setting to create the perfect browning on top. Oh, and did we mention that when you are cooking multiple foods at once, the Convection Steam Oven will not transfer one food’s flavor to the other? Each food item keeps its own taste for a meal that is sure to impress.

    These ovens are also great for leftovers, which typically lose most of their flavor after being reheated. You are now able to use the steam to help reinfuse moisture in the food, keeping it fresh and flavorful. No more dried up meats or lackluster vegetables you’d rather not spend time eating.

    A final, important detail of every kitchen appliance, is how they fit into your existing kitchen design. Some ovens are clunky and can become an eyesore that sticks out amongst other appliances. The ovens made by Wolf are modern, sleek and can be installed flush with your cabinetry for a seamless integration. There is no bulk or protruding edges. The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, and you should feel a sense of pride in your time there.

    Sub-Zero and Wolf has a great history of product performance, as well as an amazing repair history when needed. Their reliable products are sure to change the way you cook. If you’re looking to spice up your cooking routine, stop by the Reno’s showroom in Paterson, NJ to meet with one of our educated sales associates. We have been enhancing kitchens since 1951, offering consumers a wide variety of products that range in price to better fit individual budgets.

  8. Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop Will Change the Way You Prepare Meals

    Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop Will Change the Way You Prepare Meals

    Thinking of replacing that outdated cooktop? Or maybe you’re planning to entirely redo your kitchen? Regardless of your reasoning, Reno’s Appliance has plenty of great appliances to choose from, such as the Jenn-Air Black 36” Induction Cooktop. Like the other Jenn-Air induction cooktops we feature, this electric unit is sleek with an uncluttered appearance that is appropriate for any kitchen. Jenn-Air clients recognize that their reputation is legendary; offering excellent design and a signature high-end product line for over five decades. This Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop features state of the art magnetic induction; warming or cooking food in less time than conventional gas or electric cooktops. Also, with the help of induction cook technology, the surface of your cooktop will not get as hot as your typical unit, making it safer and easier to clean. Do we still have your attention?

    This Jenn-Air unit is controlled with ease through touch sensitive technology, similar to your cell phone or touch enabled laptop. The control selections are easy to see, yet discreet at the same time, placing the touch panel at the center of the unit’s counter edge. With the slide of a finger, the unit is fully controlled from on and off, to a wide range of temperature changes that help you achieve meal preparation perfection for any recipe. And of course, with the touch sensitive control of this Jenn-Air unit, there are no little gadgets to take off and clean. Everyone loves easy to clean kitchen appliances and this one is sure to satisfy any kitchen owner.

    Any professional chef will tell you that one of the secrets to mouthwatering results from the kitchen to the dining room is both correct and consistent temperature during the cooking process. This is where the Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop outperforms conventional models. Gas flows waiver and electric cook points often fail to deliver the versatility of temperature selection that the induction cooktop offers. In other words, once the electric element is hot, it takes time to lower the temperature, sometimes over cooking or spoiling a recipe. That is not so with the Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop; which consistently delivers the temperature you select, with the capacity to lower or raise it as needed with exact precision. Whether cooking for the family or guests, the Jenn-Air Induction Cooktop will help you set the pace that you want.

    Also, with conventional gas or electric models, heat is not evenly distributed if the cookware is too large. The cookware just hangs over the edge of the element, begging for proper heat. With the Jenn-Air model, there are several programmable options you can set to help avoid this problem. With the stroke of one finger, two of the cooktop’s five points can be used to span the entire bottom of a large pan or even your favorite oversized griddle. In other words, two of the separate induction points can be programmed to work together as one point. Large holiday meals just got that much easier.

    Besides the option of bridging induction points for consistent heat within larger cookware, each cook point has a distinct programmable “Keep Warm Function.” Each point also has a separate timing feature, so that when cooking on multiple points, each piece of cookware receives the cook time you specify. And if that versatility is not enough, each induction point also features a separate warm, simmer, and melt function. You can enjoy the ease of function coupled with a durable design when it comes to this unit in your kitchen. Jenn-Air’s Induction Cooktop will surpass your expectations.

    Interested in this unit or one with similar features? Take a look around our website for our complete line of Jenn-Air products or feel free to visit our Reno’s Appliance showroom located in Paterson, NJ. The experts in our showroom are here to help you become acquainted with our wonderful product line. We are open year-round and in the late evenings for your convenience. You can also reach us by phone at 866-88-RENOS.

  9. 5 Great Reasons to Connect Your Jenn-Air Oven to Amazon's Alexa

    5 Great Reasons to Connect Your Jenn-Air Oven to Amazon's Alexa

    What if you could control your oven with simple voice commands? Sound impossible? It’s not! Jenn-Air has partnered with Amazon to bring the power of voice command to your kitchen.

    Amazon’s Alexa Voice Service or simply, Alexa, is an intelligent, cloud-based service that enables you to use your voice to control any connected product, including select Jenn-Air ovens. As long as you have a registered Jenn-Air connected oven and access to Wi-Fi, you can link your Jenn-Air account to Amazon’s Alexa for simple, seamless voice interaction.

    Reno’s Appliance is pleased to offer these two Alexa-enabled ovens from Jenn-Air:

    You may be wondering: “Why do I need a voice-controlled oven?” It’s a good question, especially since you’ve probably been using a standard oven all of your life. Here are five great reasons you’ll want to connect your Jenn-Air oven to Alexa:

    1. It’s Simple and Intuitive: Simple voice commands have been created for everything from preheating and setting timers to changing temperatures and cooking modes. There’s no need to learn super-specific, awkward phrases. For example, you can say things like:
      • “Alexa, tell Jenn-Air to preheat the oven to 350 degrees.”
      • “Alexa, tell Jenn-Air to reduce the oven temperature by 25 degrees”
      • "Alexa, tell Jenn-Air to set the oven timer for 12 minutes."
      • "Alexa, tell Jenn-Air to preheat the oven for a 12-pound turkey."
      • “Alexa, ask Jenn-Air for time remaining on the oven timer.”

      For safety reasons, stovetop cooking and broil are not voice controlled, as that type of cooking requires constant supervision.

    2. You Can Multitask: How many times has this happened? You’re handling raw meat, or you’re wrist deep in cookie dough and you realize that you need to preheat the oven. With the Alexa-connected oven, you don’t need to stop what you’re doing and wash your hands just to go press a button. Simply tell Alexa what you need done and continue with your task.
    3. Alexa Understands You: Alexa has finely tuned automatic speech recognition technology. What that means is, Alexa understands the way you naturally speak. And the more you talk to Alexa, the more it understands your personal speech patterns and regional accent. There’s no reason to “talk like a robot” in order for your command to be understood like with some other voice-controlled devices. And, you won’t find yourself screaming the same simple command to Alexa over and over again in frustration. Alexa will hear you and immediately respond the first time.
    4. Jenn-Air Ovens Are “Future-Proofed”: With today’s technology evolving at break-neck speed, you may be reluctant to purchase a new piece of technology thinking that it will soon be obsolete. Jenn-Air will certainly keep innovating, but you can easily upgrade your current oven to incorporate these new features, helping to ensure that Jenn-Air wall ovens purchased today will be "future-proofed" from early obsolescence.
    5. Yes, There’s an App for That. In addition to controlling your Alexa-enabled oven with voice commands, you can control and monitor your oven through a free smartphone app. For example, you can check for doneness or preheat the oven while you’re in another room of your home.

    If this technology sounds like something you would like incorporated in your home, make sure to visit Reno’s Appliance and ask about the Jenn-Air 30” Double Wall Oven and the Jenn-Air Microwave/Wall Oven. And, if you’re interested in other Alexa-enable appliances, you can ask to see the Jenn-Air 72” Counter-Depth French Door Refrigerator.

  10. The Refridgerator You've Been Searching For: Sub-Zero 42" Built-in Side-by-Side

    The Refridgerator You've Been Searching For: Sub-Zero 42" Built-in Side-by-Side

    Did you know that you can purchase a refrigerator that costs only a little more to operate than an incandescent light bulb, hour for hour? At Reno’s Appliance we offer some of the best refrigerators on the market today and we believe that the Sub-Zero 42” Built-in Side-by-Side unit is one to brag about. In 2000, Sub-Zero & Wolf merged to begin manufacturing a high-end, built-to-last product line of kitchen appliances you are sure to love.

    Sub-Zero has mastered the science of refrigerating and freezing your food, but there is more to a great refrigerator than just the temperature. What about the storage within the unit? They have the perfect answer to internal storage. Not only are there more shelf placement options with the 42” side-by-side unit, but there are also more drawer options. They have even thought of the daily wear and tear on refrigerator drawers, designing elongated handles for this unit. The handle design alone demonstrates the superior efforts of the engineering team at Sub-Zero. Plus, the team tests each and every refrigerator they make 24 hours before boxing them up for delivery.

    Now consider the Sub-Zero answer to temperature maintenance. When we look at these refrigerators, we see an entire product line that offers dual refrigeration systems. The refrigerator side stays cool and moist, while the dry air of the freezer prevents frost and freezer burn. The Sub-Zero 42” unit even offers precise temperature control so that your system remains within one degree of the setting you create. This keeps food at an ideal temperature. The unit also lets you know when a door is left ajar.

    The company engineers looked to NASA for help with continually eliminating the growth of those unwanted, microscopic visitors that cause the shelf life of food to decrease. You don’t have to understand the science of purified air to understand that spoiled food is money wasted. NASA agrees and so did Sub-Zero engineers. They made sure to install an air purification system in every unit to optimize the shelf life of the foods you buy.

    And what about the little things in refrigerator design improvements, such as the interior light needed for those secret midnight snacks or having to replace older refrigerator bulbs when they start blinking? We have you covered. The 42” Side-by-Side is outfitted with the latest in LED lighting, which equates to a brighter interior and eliminates the need to continuously go out and buy new bulbs.

    Let’s about longevity. The engineers at Sub-Zero project that with proper use, this unit will remain optimally functional for at least two decades. This means that besides capitalizing on the interior shelf life of your food, you are also purchasing a refrigerator that will save you the money of having to buy a replacement for a long time. The minimalist exteriors of the Sub-Zero units are adapted with that fact in mind. Their tasteful look is sure to fit any kitchen design changes throughout the decades.

    If you are ready to buy the refrigerator of your dreams, stop buy Reno’s Appliance in Paterson, NJ. We feature several Sub-Zero refrigerator models that may also interest you. Our showroom has extended evening hours for your convenience and our appliance experts are here to help explain any and all other advantages of the units we offer.
