Upgrading Your Kitchen? Think Electric
(StatePoint) Whether you’re a passionate chef and a regular host, or you cook simple meals for just your family, you know that a highly serviceable kitchen can mean the difference between easy meal prep and a headache. A big part of this equation is your cooking appliances. If you’re in the market for a new cooktop, oven or range, don’t neglect electric options. Even ardent gas fans will be interested to learn how new innovations in electric cooking appliances are making kitchens more functional and versatile. With that in mind, here are some things to consider before upgrading your kitchen with new appliances:
• Easy cleaning: Time spent in the kitchen crafting meals for your loved ones can be a pleasurable experience. But few would say the same for cleaning. Opt for appliances that offer stress-free cleaning functions. Electric ovens, for example, tend to be much easier to clean than the gas variety with the benefit of powerful self-cleaning at the touch of a button. Also look for features such as removable glass doors, that can make cleanup a cinch.
• Even cooking: Roasting a chicken tonight? An electric oven means less monitoring of your dinner, as such appliances boast more even cooking with the added advantage of convection fans. Cooking on the stove-top? Electric heat can be just as or more precise and consistent with modern pot-sensing technology, high power elements and quality cookware.
• Versatility: When shopping for appliances, keep fast, efficient cooking top of mind. For example, ILVE offers a range that features induction cooking technology, which uses heat generated from magnetics instead of coils for the fastest heat transfer of any cooking surface. The ILVE Induction range is equipped with child safety features, high power cooking elements, and pot-sensor technology. Additionally, a scope of functions can be performed with the multi-function convection oven, included rotisserie accessory and full-width warming drawer. To learn more, visit www.ilveappliances.com.
• Craftmanship: For a more functional, beautiful kitchen, it’s all about finding the intersection of cutting edge technology and craftsmanship. Consider checking out a brand such as Verona, at www.VeronaAppliances.com, an Italian manufacturer of kitchen appliances that applies extensive cooking and design expertise to make ranges, cooktops and ovens. If you’re upgrading your kitchen don’t make the assumption that a gas cooktop or oven is superior to electric. Explore new models and options that offer both performance and flexibility.

MDA second Annual
Ask The Doc........
by Dr. Gary Williams, DMD
Well, it’s that time again! In most North American homes, the count-down is on for the beginning of a new school year.
It always gets me thinking about the great sampling of people we see in our dental office. From newborns to 90-somethings.
Last week someone asked me the question, “looking in the mouths of many 40 and 50 year-olds, what could have been different if health was addressed when they were, say…15 years old? The answer is a resounding, a lot!
We realize that we do have the opportunity and know-how to change the health future for today’s school kids.
In the year 2014 we have the advantage of all the research, learning, and yes, mistakes that have been made by humans, to learn from. And what does that information say?
Step in early (school age), and maximize every variable for success. Dentistry knows how to achieve a successful long-term outcome. Once dentistry, parents and children comply; we can change the future of your family’s overall health, for the better. Call a Dental Professional today, and change your future.
Cash Prizes for pumpkin carving contest and volunteers needed
Octoberfest this year will be held at Bangor Memorial Park on Saturday and Sunday, October 11th and 12th.
We are looking for groups to participate in the themed, carved pumpkin display. Maybe you own a business and you have a group of employees that would like to get together to carve some pumpkins to enter in the display. You can pick whatever theme you would like. You can search for ideas on the internet.
There have been some interesting themes in the past such as Harry Potter, classic cars, Toy Story, Elvis, etc. Do you play a sport? Maybe your group wants to carve pumpkins to show that sport? The only cost to enter is that you have to buy your own pumpkins. A group of themed pumpkins should have at least 6 or more in their display.
There will be CASH prizes awarded for the top 3 best group of themed, carved pumpkins. Prizes range from $100 to $25.00.
