Anyone who's ever shopped for a refrigerator before is familiar with how much of a pain it is going through all the options and being decisive enough to pick out the one that is perfect for you and fit your budget.  There are more options than you can imagine with all the different sizes, gadgets, styles, etc. You have "top freezer", "bottom freezer", "side by side", "french door", "french door with two drawer bottom", etc. Picking out what works for you could mean days of research before you could even start shopping for prices and don't even get me started on warranties. Fortunately consumer reports put together a comprehensive guide to how you can pick out what refrigerator could work for you: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/refrigerators/buying-guide.htm

There is now a technology on the market that allows you to cook anywhere you want on a cooktop! Thermador is one of the manufacturers implementing this induction cooktop technology and it is pretty impressive what it can do.
