With VCRs having become an appliance of the past, most people choose to watch movies and television shows via DVD, Blu-ray, or the Internet. If you want to get the best viewing experience, however, Blu-ray is the option for you.
Blu-ray provides the highest quality video available, with vivid yet realistic colors. Although they were pricey when they were introduced to the market, Blu-ray players are now significantly cheaper and quite affordable for the average consumer. Even Blu-ray players that connect to the Internet are becoming cheaper. When you switch to Blu-ray discs, you will enjoy a greater amount of storage space than that of a DVD. When your space is organized digitally, you have less physical clutter to deal with. A Blu-ray player is the optimal companion for a high-definition television.

If you enjoy cooking at home in your kitchen, it is very important to have an efficient range hood. Range hoods help remove grease, odor, and other airborne byproducts of cooking from your home. Here is your guide to selecting the right range hood for your kitchen.
When it comes to choosing a range hood, one of the most important factors to consider is your cooking style. This includes the frequency with which you cook at home as well as the type of cooking you do. If you and your family tend to cook at home several times a week or even daily, you will be best suited with a professional range hood. This is especially true if your stove handles all types of cooking, like frying, grilling, and boiling. However, if your family goes out to eat often and you only cook at home occasionally, a cabinet mounted hood will be appropriate.
Range hoods can ventilate either inside out outside. It is best to ventilate to the outside, because the odor and grease in the air will be displaced from your home. However, while ventilation to the outside is preferable, it is not always possible. If you live in an apartment building, you may be forced to use a range hood that ventilates to the inside. This will still effectively remove odors, however you may see the return of moisture that had been displaced.
Matching Your Kitchen
You no longer have to choose between fashion and function when it comes to range hoods. Now you can even use your range hood as a decorative focal point in your kitchen. Range hoods are available in many different styles, so choose one that fits the preexisting design theme of your kitchen.
If you still need help selecting a range hood, contact Gringer and Sons, Inc. We are the NYC area’s home for kitchen and appliance needs.

Many grill enthusiasts tend to stay loyal to one of two camps: charcoal grills or gas grills. However, both appliances can produce very similar tastes, especially when the grilled food is covered with spices and sauces. Since they can both create similar tasting food, the important differences are in the way the grill is used. Read on to find out if a charcoal grill or a gas grill is right for you.
If you like to cook your steaks with high heat, a charcoal grill may be the grill for you. Charcoal grills typically generate more heat than gas grills, with temperatures reaching as high as 500 to 700 degrees Fahrenheit. The more coals you use, the more heat the grill can produce. Additionally, charcoal grills get hotter when the coals are closer to the food that is being cooked. Some of these grills have levers that allow you to adjust the distance between the coals and the cooking surface. While additional heat can allow you to achieve crispy outsides with pink insides, it can also cause flare-ups that may burn your food. Charcoal heats and cools slowly, so it takes longer to reach temperature or cool down than gas grills.
Gas grills are the more popular appliance due to their ease of use and stability. While charcoal takes longer to heat, gas grills can be ready in as little as ten minutes. Gas grills are versatile, dependable, and safe. Unlike their charcoal counterparts, gas grills usually do not use open flames, so they also do not present the same possibility of flare-ups. Instead, gas grills use lava rocks or metal plates. Unfortunately, gas grills make it difficult to produce rare or medium steaks due to their inferior heat.
Whether you decide a charcoal grill or a gas grill is right for you, make your purchase at Gringer and Sons, Inc. We are an appliance and electronics service that specializes in kitchen and cooking appliances, as well as laundry, vacuums, and air conditioners. We serve the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Long Island areas with the best selection of brand-name appliances. For more information, visit our website or call us at (646) 679-3971.

There are a lot of useful appliances for your kitchen, but few are as practical as the garbage disposal. These tiny kitchen appliances make cleanup a breeze. But unless you take the time to properly clean your garbage disposal, it can also be a source of foul odors and discomfortingly loud noises. Fortunately, cleaning your garbage disposal is a quick and easy process that can leave your kitchen smelling fresh and your sink drain working properly. Here are a few tips for cleaning your garbage disposal.
Remove Non-Disposable Items
No matter how hard you try to protect your garbage disposal, items unsuitable for disposing will eventually find their way down the drain. Before you remove such items, which include the likes of glass, metal, rubber object or highly fibrous food materials like cornhusks and artichoke leaves, turn off the fuse that regulates power to your garbage disposal. Then use tongs or pliers to remove any non-disposable items stuck inside the garbage disposal.
Clean the Grinding Elements
Over time, the grinding elements will become wrought with bacteria. To keep the grinding elements clean, fill the garbage disposal with two cups of ice cubes and a cup of rock salt. Run cold water down the drain and turn on the garbage disposal for 10 seconds to help knock loose sludge and debris. You can substitute a cup of vinegar if you do not have any rock salt on hand.
Freshen Up the Drain Line
If you have a malodorous garbage disposal, you can use citrus peels to help freshen up your sink and remove foul odors from your kitchen. Put a handful of citrus peels from oranges, lemons, limes, or grapefruit into your garbage disposal, run cold water down the sink, and turn on the disposal. The citric acid from the peels will help deodorize your garbage disposal.
