Spring colors explode on the kitchen scene — creating designs that are ‘out with the old’ and ‘in with the new’

Elmira Stove Works

You prepare sumptuous meals. You gather with family and friends. You rehash the day’s events. You plan for what comes next. The American kitchen has earned its place as the most storied, “grounding” room in the house. Which is why — every new spring season — homeowners race to fill the space with the newest in spring colors to revitalize and renew following the drab winter months. And, as always, Elmira has its finger on the pulse of “tasty” spring color designs you should consider.

1947_BY_FULLCommon shades of white and slate give colors the chance to pop

We’ll start with spring kitchen color possibilities. Granted, not every homeowner feels the need to turn their kitchens into bold palettes of color; some prefer to tiptoe into the world of color. If that’s you, there are still plenty of opportunities to allow colors to pop off of a more traditional neutral background.

I don’t know about you, but to me it sounds like an oxymoron to clean your dishwasher. Isn’t it cleaned every time you use the dishwasher? I mean it is what the dishwasher does—wash dishes. But just like with your washer machine, soap scum can build up along with food particles and other yuck.

So what should you do to clean your dishwasher? Just follow these steps …


Take out all parts of the dishwasher that can be removed by hand. Typically dishwashers have a filter in them to remove and clean. In my Frigidaire Gallery® Dishwasher I have a fine grade and coarse grade filter, and so I only need to check and clean it when necessary if large food particles become trapped or when I notice a drop in cleaning performance. The filters on my dishwasher are self-cleaning, but when I want to do a deep clean or get out tough gunk I do clean those filters out.

Here is the gunk I found when I cleaned my filter out….I know…ewwwww!

Take them out, and clean them with warm, soapy water. You may need a sponge to get all the gunk out of your filter.


Gunk—everything from food particles to bits of plastic—can get stuck in on the edges of the dishwasher door, or on the walls of the dishwasher. Take a dishcloth with warm soapy water and wipe it all down well.


Make sure the dishwasher is completely empty of all dishes. Then take a dishwasher-safe cup, such as a glass measuring cup, and fill it with vinegar. Place the cup with the vinegar in the dishwasher on the bottom rack and run the dishwasher on the hottest cycle. The vinegar will sanitize the dishwasher removing any odors that linger. If your dishwasher has a lot of hard water stains you may need to do this routine more than once.


Once the inside is clean, next you’ll want to clean the front of the dishwasher. Start by wiping down the top of the door that meets the top of the dishwasher. Then take warm soapy water and wipe down the front of the dishwasher. Then dry it all off with a soft towel.


When I clean my Frigidaire Gallery® Dishwasher regularly once every 2-3 months, I find that my dishes come out sparkly clean which saves me time. No more irritating little food particles to have to rewash! And I really love the soft rubbery prongs that keep my cups from banging all around while they are getting cleaned. It’s probably my favorite feature about my dishwasher.

Cleaning out your dishwasher not only helps with odors and ickiness, but it can also help your dishwasher keep your dishes coming out sparkly clean.

Spring into the Perfect Grill with Broil King


Knowledge is power when it comes to purchasing your next grill. Here are some tips and questions to ask that will help equip you with the information needed to make a savvy purchase.

Looks can be deceiving: The most important aspect of any grill is the performance. Performance is a function of careful design and features working together as a cooking system. Remember that performance is not readily visible, and can be masked by cosmetic features. Always ask about the grills cooking system and look inside to know what it offers. One feature to keep an eye out for is heavy duty cooking grids in either cast iron or stainless steel. The heavier the grids the better the heat retention and flavor results. Cast iron is the best material for heat retention.. Also, heavy duty cooking grids combined with the right burners will give you full surface searing , instead of a searing zone. The Broil King’s heavy duty cast iron and their 9 mm thick stainless steel rods are the heaviest available and provide superior heat retention that delivers searing heat across the entire surface.

Gas or charcoal: One of the most common grilling debates is gas or charcoal. A common misunderstanding is that barbecue flavor comes from the charcoal, when in fact the great flavour associated with grilling comes from fats and juices dripping onto a hot surface. When food juices hit a hot surface they vaporize and permeate the food with that unmistakable barbecue flavor. Charcoal is tasteless and odorless, but it does a great job of vaporizing the juices of food being cooked. On a gas grill you want to look for a heat medium that covers the entire cookbox so that it will capture and vaporize all of the food juices. Grills with heat tents or gaps in the vapourizer will allow food juices to drip through to the grease tray, meaning lost flavor.

Heat Retention and Control: The heart or engine of a grill is the burner system. Burners are typically subject to much abuse; high temperatures, corrosive food acids and salts; rapid temperature changes and condensation. You want to look for a thick burner with flame ports on the side for optimal heat distribution (two sources of flame) and to reduce the risk of the ports getting clogged with food drippings. Most grills offer single tube burners. This burner design could result in more heat at the back vs. the front due to the flow of gas being concentrated at the back of the burner. There are burners with a tube in tube or dual tube design that distribute the flow of gas evenly front to back resulting in more even heat distribution. Another key consideration is the cook box design. If the cook box has a closed bottom, the flow of air will be controlled and the grill will retain heat with the lid up or down. This give you more flexibility and versatility in cooking methods.
