Should I Replace or Repair My Appliance?

To repair or to replace? We’ve all wrestled with this question when it comes to all kinds of home appliances. However, the answer isn’t always as straightforward as you’d like. Think about the appliance’s age and energy efficiency. If it’s old and upping your energy costs, it may be time for a replacement. As a general rule, replace your appliance if the cost of repairs is over half the cost of a brand new one.

What Cleaning Methods Do You Recommend?

Proper cleaning and care for your appliance depends on its material and finishes. For example, stainless steel can be cleaned with dish soap, club soda, or glass cleaner. Ask our team about the specific cleaning method you should use once you choose your favorite appliance.

How Can I Make the Most Out of My Dishwasher?

Dishwashers are a significant investment, especially if you’re looking at high-end kitchen appliances. Fortunately, you can enhance your dishwasher’s performance with a few simple tips. When you fill your dishwasher, make sure not to pack items in too tightly. Place some of your spoons and forks handles up and place others with handles down. If you need to do two loads, keep your dirtiest items together. This way, you can run a shorter cycle for your less-messy load and save on energy bills.

What Temperature Should My Dishwasher’s Water Be?

In most cases, water entering the dishwasher should be around 120 degrees. Anything less won’t achieve the best clean for your dishes. However, the temperature should not exceed 150 degrees.

What Kind of Soap Should I Use in My Dishwasher?

Most dishwashers will get the job done with most of the most popular brands of dishwasher detergent. While you can generally be selective about your soap, you should avoid using liquid dish soap in the dishwasher. Unfortunately, this type of soap can fill your dishwasher with suds and cause an overflow onto the floor.
