Today’s post will act as sort of pat on my back as I successfully posted every single working day during June. Yeahhh boyeee. It was an exhausting practice and one that took an insane amount of discipline. Me, disciplined? Try telling that to the Appliance Dude when he was in his teens and twenties!
With June on the way out we celebrate the arrival of July and it’s sweltering heat, the 4th, fireworks, my anniversary(!), and wonderful deals in the appliance world. Yes, let’s not lose focus here, we are supposed to be talking appliances…
Things to watch for this month:
Lots of goodness behind Electrolux kitchen appliance packages
The start of the Viking free dishwasher / hood rebate
The start of an Electrolux Icon $1000 rebate package
The release of GE’s new built-in wall ovens
So excited. So much to discuss. Strap yourselves in and Happy 4th of July!
Bertazzoni has started their (seemingly) annual free hood giveaway. I find many of these appliance rebates/deals to be full or fluff but this is a great deal. Make that a fantastic deal.
Works like this – purchase a Bertazzoni range:
Get a free hood or OTR micro.
Or, if you are opting to roll with a cooktop/wall oven combo you can still qualify for the free hood to be used over the cooktop. In this case the micro would be ideal or one of the lower powered hoods that Bertazzoni offers.
First off – thoughts and prayers to those who have been devastated by Sandy.
We took a beating in Yonkers but fortunately the showroom and Central Ave as a whole were pretty much unscathed. We’re operating under normal business hours but just be aware that there have been huge lines in front of the showroom that are queuing up for a gas station that is down the block. For the most part our driveway has been accessible but if you come down and it is blocked you can park on the opposite side of Central Ave and just cross over.
Thanks for your patience and we pray for a speedy return to normalcy for everyone.
Love this kitchen in Eastchester, Westchester County. Shows that you can use GE Cafe can run with the big boys when it comes to stylin’ and profilin’. Check out more Curto’s kitchen appliance photo galleries here.
One year down, much more goodness to come!
Thanks to all my viewers…
August is usually a dead month in the world of major appliances. The last air conditioners were sold in July and people are usually sunning themselves in various vacation spots throughout August where top of mind topics are “did you put SPF on the kids?” or “where are we going to eat tonight” as opposed to “which pro range should I buy”.
Thankfully, this August was different for the Appliance Dude and Curto’s as a whole, as large kitchen orders continued to come in through the last week of the month. No complaints here! Don’t know if these are folks that just got a jump start on the typical cooking season appliance purchase cycle (mid September through early November) but a fact is a fact and the recent trends held up: people are still rocking high end packages, typically with all pieces coming from the same manufacturer.
So now we turn the page to September and after Labor Day and back to school, people should be out in droves looking to get their kitchens done prior to Thanksgiving. My Fall buying show will be taking place right before the cooking season rush begins and here are some things which will be featured at that show and which in turn I will be showing on our floor:
– new kitchen appliances from Whirlpool and Maytag that are absolutely sizzling looking. Yes, Whirlpool and Maytag as harbingers of taste, design and style! Who woulda thunk!?
– new Electrolux refrigerators (they better work)
and more….much MUCH MORE!
After cooling my jets with wifey in Turks & Caicos I have returned to the world of appliances! (actually I never really left, as I gained much inspiration for future webisodes
under the caring and warm embrace of assorted rum punch varieties!)
I am locked and loaded and ready to pour out the content this month as we prepare for the Fall buying season. You want Wolf and Sub-Zero info? More dirt on Electrolux French Door fridges? Viking D3 tidbits? Even more info on Bosch dishwashers? Stay tuned, we’re going to roll….HARD!
A free 10-year warranty if you buy your appliances from “X” appliance retailer?
Don’t believe the hype!
More to come…
