Product Pick of the Week: Range Burner Grates

Standard

A burner grate is like a work of art: it’s all bold lines, corners, and curves. Our burner grates support the heaviest of our pots, take splatters and spills without complaint, and only hold heat when we need them too allowing us to go from a boil to a simmer in no time flat.  We thought they deserved a little recognition, which is why we’ve made them our Product Pick this week.

Standard

When you reach for the door on your refrigerator, you expect it to be cold inside.  But have you ever wondered how it gets that way?  We’ve talked about a few parts that help with this in the past like the Start Relay, the Overload, the Evaporator Fan Motor, the Compressor…the list goes on (you can read about those here).  But one important part that we haven’t talked about yet is the Capacitor.  Without this one little part the Compressor doesn’t know to start, leaving you with a warm fridge and that’s why we’ve made it our Pick of the Week.

Product Pick of the Week: Dryer Timers

Standard

Dryers: we’re all pretty familiar with them.  For decades, they’ve helped to make laundry a little bit easier, saving us the hassle of having to line dry everything and speeding things up so we can have our warm fluffy towels, dry clothes, blankets, and more sooner.

We turn the knob, push start and expect it to handle the rest.  But how does the dryer know just what to do?  Part of this is thanks to the Dryer Timer, a key player when it comes to managing the different cycles, which is why they’re this week’s Product Pick. Continue reading
