Using FanFresh and Wrinkle Shield Options

FanFresh Blog Feature Image

Let’s be honest, how many of us take out our laundry as soon as the load is finished? While we should, many of us don’t. Select Whirlpool and Maytag laundry machines help keep clothes fresh for up to 16 hours with options like FanFresh and Wrinkle Shield.

WHAT IS FANFRESH?

A variety of brands can tumble your clothes in the washer after it’s done with a load. However, Maytag and Whirlpool’s FanFresh option adds an integrated fan. The fan circulates air through the washer to reduce humidity.

The WRINKLE SHIELD™ feature periodically tumbles, rearranges, and fluffs the load to help keep wrinkles from forming.  You may select the “With Steam” setting to add a short steam cycle to help smooth out wrinkles as well.

While Whirlpool and Maytag offer a WRINKLE SHIELD™ option, a variety of brands offer wrinkle prevention options by other names.

Who doesn’t want more space in their dishwasher? If you are in the market for a new one, think about testing a third rack dishwasher at Bekins.

ADVANTAGES OF A THIRD RACK DISHWASHER

Many new dishwashers offer a third rack now. Most dishwashers typically offer a small flat space for your silverware and cooking utensils. By eliminating the silverware basket, you get more space to store large items. However, some offer a third rack big enough to fit some bowls and small items.

If you have never seen one before, manufacturers typically build the third rack at the top or middle of the dishwasher.

Why I chose an induction range

My KitchenAid Induction Range at home

An entire suite of appliances usually starts with one choice. When my family decided to get a new suite of kitchen appliances, I knew I wanted an induction range.

Why? I was thinking about the safety of my toddler at home.

WHAT IS an INDUCTION range?

I chose a slide-in range with a convection oven and an induction cooktop. Induction uses electromagnetic energy to generate instant heat directly to your cookware without spreading the heat across the entire cooking surface.

If you have never experienced induction cooking, you can learn more about it by clicking here.

When I bought my home, it came with a gas range. My family had to hire an electrician to give us the correct electrical outlet in order to make the change to our new range.

WHY I CHOSE AN INDUCTION RANGE

  • My son can’t turn on a gas burner anymore, reach over the top of the range and risk burning himself (believe me he tried once).
  • I can also control lock both the oven and cooktop elements on my slide-in range. So my toddler cannot easily turn them on.
  • Finally, the heating element on top doesn’t stay very hot for very long.

don’t get me wrong, it’s not fool proof

While I enjoy all of the benefits mentioned above, I still take precautions when cooking around my toddler at home.

  • I try to use the back heating elements on the cooktop because the pan I’m cooking can still get too hot to touch.
  • I can’t use the control lock when the cooktop or oven are cooking, so I still need to keep my son away from anything hot when it’s on.
