I have a deep appreciation and love for appliances. A big reason for my appliance affection is that my family business is appliances. In 1965, my grandafather opened an appliance store in Buffalo NY. Today, Orville's Home Appliances has four retail locations and a 60,000 square ft. warehouse. After going away for college and law school, I came to the ultimate conclusion that I belong at home and at Orville's Appliances.
In August I moved bought a house. Obviously, I had been waiting a good half of my life to pick out appliances for my own home. Basically I could have anything I wanted (only subject to the structural limitations of a large galley style kitchen). I chose to outfit my kitchen with all KitchenAid products. I know that most people are familiar with KitchenAid but, for those who may not know, KitchenAid is a Whirlpool brand marketed as a dependable premium brand. (Fun Fact: 1919 was the year that Kitchenaid introduced its first residential stand mixer. The iconic shape and design is one of the few images to be trademarked. And the mixer has become a wedding registry must-have.) In my opinion, KitchenAid is an overall-excellent brand with product depth, durability, and classic design. KitchenAid can be pricey - but you get a lot of bang for the buck.
Kitchen-Aid just developed a cool tool for exploring and learning KitchenAid products. Visit Kitchenatomy for virtual tours of KitchenAid products. This tool was initially designed to give retailers the knowledge and expertise to sell Kitchenaid products. Check it out and become an expert yourself! Stay Tuned! I plan on posting and reviewing my appliances individual....so come back soon!
