Our kitchens are the hearts of our homes. Starting with breakfast and ending with a bed time snack, this single room contains the blood, sweat and tears of parents who try their best to get a good meal on the table and in the bellies of their family.
Pinterest and the blogosphere are filled with tips and tricks to help us squeeze a good meal out of a tight budget and an even tighter schedule. We prepare casseroles ahead of time and fill our refrigerators with pre-cut vegetables in an attempt to save time and still we need more time, more tips and tricks–more help. We forget to preheat the oven or we let the soup boil over on the stove, we miscalculate the conversion for convection baking. Yes, we are only human and we may be frazzled and unorganized or we may be a homemaker personified but we could all use extra help in the kitchen!
In our home we have dreamed about hiring a sous chef but lately we have realized that the help we need may not come from a mere mortal but from a new appliance. An appliance whose beauty is deeper than it’s stainless steel exterior. The appliances we are talking about are more than good helpers, they are partners with our best interests at heart!
PRIZE CHOICE #1: DOUBLE OVEN
One of the appliances we have been lovingly contemplating is the Frigidaire Gallery 30″ Freestanding Electric Range with Symmetry™ Double Ovens. It has a cooktop with five elements, two of them are expandable and one of them is a Warming Zone. The double ovens are each large enough to fit a 28-pound turkey so we could easily cook several dishes requiring different temperatures at the same time. The top oven is not only true convection; it does the conversion for you based on normal cooking temperatures and times. Both ovens have one-touch buttons for items like pizza or chicken nuggets or for adding another minute to the timer. To top it all off is has Smudge-Proof™ stainless steel that resists fingerprints and smudges so it is easy to clean.

PRIZE CHOICE #2: BUILT-IN DISHWASHER
The other kitchen helper we have fallen in love with is the Frigidaire Gallery 24″ Built-In Dishwasher with OrbitClean™ Technology. With the OrbitClean™ wash arm provides 4 times more water coverage, providing a clean that is right the first time. This dishwasher fits up to 14 place settings, has adjustable racks and a silverware basket that holds up to 180 items so fitting all of our dinner dishes in should be a breeze. Once it is loaded there are 7 cycles to choose from and they range from a simple rinse or a quick clean to a high temperature sanitizing wash that is guaranteed to remove 99.9% of common household bacteria. The cycle that we really like is the top rack only wash for quickly getting rid of the evidence of our midday coffee and ice cream breaks. It ends with a SaharaDry™ that leaves you with dishes ready to put away immediately, no extra towelling-off needed! Now when we think about hosting Thanksgiving Dinner, or preparing multiple appetizers for a Super Bowl party or baking 6 dozen cookies for a cookie exchange we no longer wish for a sous-chef we wish for a new Frigidaire range and dishwasher!
