  1. Why Taking a Trip to Our Showroom Is Worth Your Time

    Why Taking a Trip to Our Showroom Is Worth Your Time

    If you’ve been to one showroom, you’ve been to them all, right?

    That’s far from the truth. Reno’s Appliance has been around since 1951 and has a reputation for being among the best in the business. You won’t be disappointed by taking the trip.

    Need some convincing? Check out some of the reasons people come back to Reno’s Appliance over and over again. In fact, you might end up stopping by today so you can see the showroom for yourself.

    Over 12,000 Square Feet of Displays

    If you take the time to visit a showroom, you want to see a lot of available appliances to make it worth it. With over 12,000 square feet of displays, you will get to see a little bit of everything at Reno’s Appliance. The displays are sectioned off by major brands, including Jenn-Air, Wolf, and Sub-Zero, and the grill display is a sight to behold. This huge display is set up as if it’s in the outdoors. You will also see partial kitchen setups to help you better imagine what these items would look like if you take them home. This impressive display is one not often seen in other appliance stores.

    Knowledgeable Staff

    Have you ever gone to a store to buy an appliance only to realize that the staff didn’t know anything about what they were selling? That’s incredibly frustrating, but you don’t have to worry about it when you shop at Reno’s Appliance. It’s worth the drive for this alone. The staff knows these appliances inside and out, and will answer your questions, regardless of how complicated they are.

    Do you need to know if a built-in dishwasher is right for your kitchen? They have the answer. Maybe you need to get the scoop on the differences between Maytag and Samsung. Fully understanding a product and how it works with your home makes the purchase an easier and more confident one.

    This much knowledge means that the team works well with customers, including builders. Whether you need to buy something for your home or you are building a new house and filling it with appliances, the team can help. They will give you the personalized service you can only expect at a place like Reno’s Appliance.

    The Family-Owned Difference

    The biggest reason to visit Reno’s Appliance has to do with the owners. Reno’s Appliance isn’t a big box store. The Reno family runs it. Their father opened it over six decades ago, and now the sons have taken over. This local business stands out from the big box stores when it comes to service, selection, and prices. If you’ve ever been to a family-owned store, you know that they care about their customers.

    Less Sales Tax

    If you need another reason to make the trip to Reno’s Appliance, think about the sales tax. Since Reno’s Appliance is located in the Urban Enterprise Zone, it only collects half of the New Jersey sales tax as long as you are taking the items to a location within the state of New Jersey. That’s a great way to save some money on your next purchase. If you’re sick of paying so much in taxes, it’s time to visit Reno’s Appliance.

    Don’t expect to come to Reno’s Appliance once and never return. Reno’s Appliance has a habit of turning first-time visitors into long-term customers. The showroom in Paterson, New Jersey, has everything you need for your home, so stop by and see the Reno’s Appliance difference. Let a staff member help you find exactly what you’re looking for or just walk through the showroom, taking it all in. You’ll quickly see why people always seem to come back to Reno’s Appliance every time they need something new for their home or yard.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    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. Stop by our showroom in Paterson, NJ to view our selection.

  4. 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.
