Kitchen stove

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

A kitchen stove, cooking stove, cookstove or cooker is a kitchen appliance designed for the purpose of cooking food. Kitchen stoves rely on the application of direct heat for the cooking process and may also contain an oven, used for baking.

In the industrialized world, as stoves replaced open fires and braziers as a source of more efficient and reliable heating, models were developed that could also be used for cooking, these came to be known as kitchen stoves.[1] When homes began to be heated with central heating systems, there was less need for an appliance that served as both heat source and cooker and stand-alone cookers replaced them. Cooker and stove are often used interchangeably.

The fuel-burning stove is the most basic design of kitchen stove. In the developing world, such stoves are still the most common cooking appliances and new, more fuel efficient and environmentally sound biomass cook stoves are being developed for use there. Modern kitchen stoves may use alternative methods for heating food. Natural Gas and electric stoves are the most common today in western countries. Both are equally mature and safe, and the choice between the two is largely a matter of personal preference and preexisting utility outlets: if a house has no gas supply, adding one just to be able to run a gas stove is an expensive endeavour. In particular, professional chefs often prefer gas cooktops, for they allow them to control the heat more finely and more quickly. On the other hand, some chefs often prefer electric ovens because they tend to heat food more evenly. According to EnergyGuide labels on appliances sold in the U.S. and EnerGuide labels in Canada, natural-gas-fueled appliances are more cost-efficient for the duration of their life. Today’s major brands offer both gas and electric stoves, and many also offer dual-fuel stoves combining gas cooktops and electric ovens.

Modern kitchen stoves have both burners on the top (also known in American English as the cooktop or range and, in British English, the hob) and, as noted, an oven. A cooktop just has burners on the top and is usually installed into a countertop. A drop-in range has both burners on the top and an oven and hangs from a cutout in the countertop (that is, it cannot be installed free-standing on its own)

Kitchen Redesign: Advantages and Disadvantages

By KBC Kitchen & Bathroom

There are a number of advantages to having a kitchen redesign. The greatest benefit is that the value of your home is increased. The increased value depends on the quality of the workmanship in the project. If your kitchen redesign is done properly, the value goes up. If you do not decide to sell and you are enhancing its aappearance based on your needs or the needs of your family, you will find that a kitchen redesign project will make the room your family spends a lot of time in more warm and inviting.

A disadvantage of a kitchen redesign project is the cost. If you decide to make small improvements such as replacing appliances the cost will be less than if you decide to do a major kitchen redesign which may include moving walls, changing the surface of the floor, changing the kitchen cabinets, adding marble countertops, and so on.

A kitchen redesign project can be a do-it-yourself project or it can be professionally designed and the work can be done by a professional contractor. If you are handy with plumbing and electricity, you may want to make small changes yourself. However, it is always better to have a professional install an appliance such as gas stoves. Leaks can prove fatal to you and your family. Another disadvantage to do-it-yourself is familiarity with all the tools you will need to work with. You may injure yourself and this could cause you to lose time from work. You also need to consider the time it will take for you to make the changes.

An interior designer can assist you in the proper placement of fixtures and accessories as well as help you with the overall look and feel of the room. The interior designer draws up the plans and the contractor completes the work. Interior designers may also be able to get you a discount on the fixtures you need for your kitchen redesign.

You should research your ideas as to how you want your kitchen to look. Looking through magazines, books, and rooms on the Internet will give you ideas. You should clip pictures or print them out so you can discuss them with the designer if you decide to work with a professional.

When you decide on a kitchen redesign project, you will essentially get a new kitchen. It does not matter if it is just a change in cabinets, putting in a new sink or a new floor. When the project is completed, you will feel good about your new kitchen.
