Thermador Ice MakersAnyone with an ice maker as part of their home bar setup knows, ice is an integral part of any and all cocktails. That is why Nassau County ice maker repair has become such a vital part of our business, especially during barbecue and pool party season. Without the proper ration of ice cocktails cannot live up to their full flavor potential.

Whether you are getting ice from a Whirlpool ice maker or simply using the refrigerator’s attached ice maker there are some things you should know about ice and making cocktails:

  • Ice Is Fundamental: A cocktail is made up of four primary elements; liquid, glassware, garnish, and ice. Each of these elements play a primary role in how the drink is served and imbibed.
  • Good Ice: The quality of your ice will vary based on its purpose. Sometimes a few cubes(or rocks) is all a drink needs, other times there needs to be crushed ice to give a drink that slushy feel, still other times ice will merely be used to “chill” a beverage.
  • Fancier Ice: Some fancier bars get their ice from sculptors who hand carve the ice. This is serious.
  • Whiskey Stones: Some folks aiming to avoid diluting their beverages will use whiskey stones, basically stones stored in the freezer that will not melt. Many respected folks with astute whiskey pallets will actually suggest that a splash of water or water from ice is necessary to opening up the flavor of a whiskey.

So it turns out there might be more to ice than any of us thought!

Whirlpool Ice MakerA home should never be without ice. Not only is ice a vital necessity for frosty cool drinks for summers spent lounging in the yard or by the pool, it can also be a vital medical supply to bring down swelling.

  • Unbaked Pies: By freezing a pie before baking you eliminate gooey bottom crusts because the inside is still thawing as the bottom crust begins to seriously bake. This also means that when the day comes for a fresh pie you might have one ready to go in just a short amount of time with no shopping.
  • Leftover Treats: Sure leftover treats might be rare but they aren’t impossible. A few stray cookies left out a little too long? Cereal sitting in the cabinet not being eaten? Bag those snacks up and use them as ice cream toppings or mix-ins later!
  • Fresh Herbs In Olive Oile: Fill an ice cube tray with all of your favorite herbs and then filly the individual pockets with olive oil. These are great for stews and all kinds of other cooking later on!

grill repair in Nassau CountyFor many people the grill is a place for meat and that is pretty much that. This is incredibly small minded. Worse still, if you are running in the house to prepare cooked vegetables on your stove your are burning through extra gas and costing yourself money. While our staff of Lynx, Viking, and DCS grill repair experts might not have the same taste as you and your family we know that anything you want to cook can be prepared on the grill this summer.

Whether you plan on frying, sauteing, or blanching your veggies and sides you can do so right on the grill. Simply separate your cooking meat from an area where you will place your sides. If you need a pan or pot you can simply place it on the grill rack. The heat will be every bit as effective as your stove top and it is already burning.

Nassau Fridge RepairWhen all everything is in working order the fridge can keep food fresh and delicious. As a Nassau fridge repair company though we see a number of items occupying Long Island’s fridge shelves that should be reconsidered. We thought we would take some time to share the items that actually should not be kept in the refrigerator at all:

  • Bread: Do not call for a Sub-Zero refrigerator repair when the bread in your fridge gets dried out fast, it should not be in there. Leave what you plan to eat at room temperature and then freeze the rest of the loaf.
  • Garlic: Garlic can stay good for up to two months at room temperature.
  • Coffee: Keeping your coffee in the refrigerator can take away taste. No one wants that!
  • Tomatoes: Like a variety of other produce tomatoes belong at room temperature.
  • Onions: Do not put onions in the refrigerator. Instead store them in the pantry in the bag you purchased them in. That said, to avoid rotting keep them away from moisture packed potatoes.
  • Batteries: Not sure who started putting batteries in the fridge but the extra cold can actually kill a battery’s energy.
  • Nail Polish: Nail polish thickens in the cold, unless you like clumpy nails you better keep your polish at room temperature.

We are thrilled to offer our recommendations for some surprising grilled foods. We are even excited to tell you about some ways that you can attempt the simplest DCS, Lynx, and Viking grill repair on your own.

That all being said the most important thing we can emphasize is safety. Grills can be very dangerous if handled irresponsibly and even the best of them can do some damage when unforeseen events pop up. This is why no matter how proficient you might be at grilling you should have a fire extinguisher on hand.

Fire extinguishers alone are not enough. There are certain things you should be hyper aware of. Always know the proximity of young kids and pets to the stove. Not only do the flames and heat endanger the most vulnerable among us, a sudden move could endanger everyone else as well.

Another thing to watch out for is smoke. While the smell of smoke can be nice inhalation fills your lungs with potential carcinogens. Be sure smoke is aimed downwind.

Turning off gas is the most important step you can take. Do so after you use your grill every time. Any other concerns our experts can probably help. Give us a call, (516)997-5599!

Nassau fridge repair

Refreshing. Necessary. Ice.

The convenience of a refrigerator that simply makes ice all on its own is something many of us often take for granted. We somehow forget the days of half frozen ice cube trays because now our Sub-Zero refrigerators spill perfectly made cubes or crushed ice at the touch of a button. Of course the inconvenience of those ice cube trays and the costly nuisance of buying bags of ice comes roaring back as soon as our fridge’s ice maker goes on the fritz.

Luckily for Nassau County residents there is a Sub-Zero refrigerator repair expert just a phone call away. When an issue occurs with your refrigerator’s ice maker it often requires replacing parts and more complicated mechanical failures. These issues simply cannot be fixed by a person without the proper training.

For many of us the ice maker has become an integral part of our daily lives. Due to ice making mechanisms, and a voracious hunger for ice cream there often is not enough room in the freezer for ice cube trays or the expensive bag of ice from the local deli. If you are having trouble that requires Sub-Zero refrigerator repair give us a call right now!

Lynx grill repairAs spring takes hold, Long Island residents are firing up their grills for backyard barbecues. Backyard barbecues are one of the great traditions of people throughout the USA and our Long Island appliance repair company want to help make your next cookout a huge success. Our grill repair is unmatched in the area. In fact we understand a wide variety of the highest end brands of grills, including Lynx and Viking grill repair.

If you need some work on your appliance do not hesitate to call our Lynx and Viking grill repair experts. For everyone else we thought we would share some must know barbecue tips:

  • No Cold Meat: Before you throw some meat on your grill make sure it has been brought down to room temperature. Attempts at cooking meat fresh out of the fridge make for uneven cooking.
  • Always Preheat: Preheating is the best way to make the most of that barbecue flavor that comes from a hot grill. It also makes your cooking a lot more efficient.
  • Minimize Flipping: Flipping, poking, and checking on meat does not help things cook faster. In fact if you keep moving your meat it takes longer to get all of the sides evenly cooked.
  • Food Safety: Cooked food should not go on the plate you brought uncooked food out on. Do not let the outdoor environment compromise the safety of your food.
