Cerama Bryte Cooktop Stove Cleaner

Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner Combo

I was preparing our Samsung stove nicely for this test. Ever since we got the stove, the black top is very hard to clean. I have never been able to get all of the grease off. I had enough of that and decided to see if Samsung recommended anything to clean the cooktop. Samsung recommends using Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner. In preparation I used our cast iron skillet to make bacon every morning until the Cerama Bryte Cooktop Cleaner arrived from Amazon, and made a big mess every time. Also let some Korean BBQ make… Continue reading…

GermGuardian AC5000E 3-in-1 Air Cleaning System with True HEPA Filter, UV-C and Odor Reduction

Consider me sold on the GermGuardian AC5000E.

Where is all the dust from? The recent kitchen remodel. The GermGuardian AC5000E comes in a large box neatly packed in foam with an instruction manual. The instructions explain how to turn the device on and how to replace the True HEPA Filter and UV Light. I have read the reviews and… Continue reading…

Kitchen Remodel Quartz Counters and Backsplash Install

The afternoon before they were coming with the quartz counters, while the cabinets were being finished up, I was told… Continue reading…

Kitchen Remodel Cabinets Install

We had less than a week from the time I thought the demo was finished enough, to the point when the installers would arrive. A crew of two came from the cabinet company for the install and I let them work without getting in their way. I took pictures every so often and knew the pictures would be much better once the counters started to get placed. Pictures of the process are always good. The sink under cabinets went in fast. Everything was shimmed on the floor to be nice and level and fitment was… Continue reading…

Kitchen Demo

The kitchen demo was completed about 1 week before Thanksgiving 2014. This was my first time doing a kitchen demo and had the help of a friend. The process is straight forward, only requiring a hammer, chisel, power drill, screwdrivers, and a shop vac. The first painful part of the kitchen demo was to remove everything from the cabinets and put all that stuff in our eating area. The sink was used for objects I wasn’t sure how to stack just yet. I will leave the mess in the other room up to the imagination. It wasn’t pretty… Continue reading…
