 Measure Your Space

Measure the height, width and depth of the refrigerator cutout space in your kitchen.

W= right to left space opening

D= front to back ideal depth

H=top to bottom max height


 If the refrigerator has an icemaker, allow extra space at back for water line connections. Measure the clearance of doorways, hallways and other points of entry that will be used to deliver your new refrigerator

It’s where homework gets done and couples unwind with a glass of wine at the end of a long day. During family celebrations and challenging times alike, it’s the heart of the home where people reconnect and lasting memories are made.

So, just in time for the holidays, Here is a  batch of delicious culinary spaces for  homeowners who are dining out less, cooking more, and putting their kitchen to the test.

The Ekokook kitchen is complex and addresses many needs beyond cooking, such as the short-term storage of fresh vegetables, water conservation, container gardening, sorting waste, recycling, and composting. They have even made it simple to break down waste storage into categories of solid, organic, and liquid. There are also accommodations for energy-saving appliances, such as a twin-tier dishwasher, steam oven, and compartmentalized refrigerator.

3 Methods to clean your bbq  grill grates

Method 1: Turn on “HI” for 15-20 minutes to burn any remaining food particles. After turning the grill “OFF”, use a bristle barbeque brush to remove any remain in food particles or ash.

 Method 2: The easiest way to clean the grill is immediately after cooking is completed and after turning off the flame. Wear a barbeque mitt to protect your hand from the heat and steam.  Dip a soft brass bristle barbeque brush in a mixture of 2 cups of tap water and 1/2 cup of vinegar and scrub the hot grill.  Dip the brush frequently in the bowl of water and vinegar. Steam, created as water contacts the hot grill, assists the cleaning process by softening any food particles.  The food particles will fall onto the ceramic rods and burn or fall in to the drip pan.  If the grill is allowed to cool before cleaning, cleaning will be more difficult.

 Method 3: Take about 1 foot of aluminum foil, crumbled up in a ball and rubbing it over cooled grates to release food particles.

 NOTE: Grill grates must be re-seasoned after cleaning to prevent rust stains. This is done by rubbing your clean grates with canola oil.
