There are generally strong opinions when it comes to the choice of leaving out kitchen utensils or not. I tend to prefer to keep utensils in a drawer, however, for those with limited space (or those who like to keep their utensils handy), a good way of keeping things looking pulled together and sleek is to purchase uniform utensils that all have one style or color. This will go a long way in avoiding the "utensil mosh pit" that can result when you are leaving a bunch of mismatched pieces together on your countertop.
Are you in a hurry in the kitchen? If you're always scrambling to get dinner ready fast, you might want a combination thermal/convection oven, which cooks with a fan that circulates hot air so items cook more quickly and brown more easily. Convection ovens have improved dramatically in the last few years, says, Sharon Franke, director of food appliances for Good Housekeeping magazine and the Good Housekeeping Institute, which evaluates new ranges on a regular basis.
Another beautiful, somewhat universal choice for a sleek kitchen counter setup is a great knife block. Sharp knives are a chef's most important tool (from what I hear!), so a chic block is a necessity if you want to add some glam to your countertop.
How much do you really use your oven? Very few people are really going to use an oven to complete capacity, Franke says, so those extra cubic feet might not be that important. Some ovens have racks that divide so you can cook a standing rib roast and then put in a half rack for your biscuits or sweet potatoes.
"A pro fridge like a Sub-Zero is huge and it's really meant for people who need to store a lot of ingredients for constant cooking," says Sue Adams. "They do have better seals on the doors and compartments at different temps so different things won't spoil, and special gaskets so odors won't go from one compartment to another.". But if you're not a fervent cook, the big fridge is unnecessary, she says. "You can afford to let a lot of milk go sour for the difference in price between a Sub-Zero and a residential model," she says. If you do opt for a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Adams advises against the optional glass doors. "Do you really want people to see inside your refrigerator?" she asks. "And if all they'd be seeing is your takeout boxes, you may want to reconsider the purchase altogether."
Place the all freezer carefully for some improved kitchen traffic flow. "The way a typical kitchen is set up, the refrigerator freezer is in the most accessible place," says Justin. "But with a combined unit, you're using the refrigerator 90 percent of the time and the freezer just 10 percent. If you purchase an all freezer, it doesn't need to go in the most accessible spot. It can go off to the corner somewhere."
Always read the fine print and forget about those super-hot commercial ranges — that's the advice of restaurant equipment suppliers for consumers who want to save money on pro chef-quality kitchen gear by ordering online. While purchasing true restaurant equipment at a discount price may sound like an easy choice, you actually need to be more careful about what you buy.
