kitchen appliancesFinding the right home or kitchen appliance that suit your needs and offers value for money requires thoughtful investment on the buyer’s part. Lot’s of appliances sold today are produced with emphasis on profit for the manufacturer instead of user-friendliness or durability for the user. If you are looking for a particular appliance and you want to make sure you’re not wasting money on a product that ends up collecting dust in one of your cabinets, or one that just won’t stand the test of time you will have to do extensive research. I would advice you to search through the internet, search for reviews on the product you’re interested in, compare ratings and prices, findings from other consumers, etc.

We at took the liberty to do al the hard work for you. For every product / appliance we did research on we made a top 3 representing the best picks for that particular product. They are not necessarily the best model or type of that product available,(which usually mean ridiculous un-affordable prices) but they offer good value for money and perform best according to most users. We compare all tests, reviews etc,etc, We do not sell any products and we advise to buy online through Amazon since they are usually the cheapest and safest web-store you can buy the items we publish.

Pizza Stones for oven use

You want to make your own pizza’s, but you can’t seem to get it to taste as good as the ones you order from your favorite pizza deliverer. What you need is a good pizza stone to use in your home oven. Cookie sheets and metal pans just won’t do, they leave your pizza crispy on the outside, but soggy at the bottom. A pizza stone can fix that by absorbing the moist from the dough. See the ones we recommend here.


Cookie sheets

Do you like your cookies or bread crispy and dry? Or do you prefer your oven creations evenly browned and retain some moist inside? These factors very much rely on the type of cookie sheet you use. Read more about it in this article
