Miele Night!

Hey Appliance Fans,

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the word, `snazzy’.

It’s no secret that I love Miele Appliances (rhymes with tequila – I love using tequila as an example instead of Sheila).  Not only do they feature snazzy styling, each of their appliances overflow with tons of useful technology; their ranges are just one example.

I’m super excited to share with you two very special, and snazzy, Miele events:

Miele Night At Kieffer’s Appliances

We’re really proud of our Miele display.  It’s filled with ovens, ranges, dishwashers, hoods, cooktops, steam ovens, and a live coffee system (ask us for a cup the next time you’re in; we’ll bill ya later).


Check out this sweet panoramic shot I took with my snazzy iPhone.

If you’re thinking about purchasing a Miele product, and have lots of questions, you must attend Miele night in our showroom on Wednesday May 27th from 6-8pm.  Our Super-snazzy Miele Rep, Howie, will be on hand to answer any questions that I can’t answer for you plus one lucky attendee will be entered to win a snazzy Miele Vacuum cleaner, model C 3 Kona.

I want one!

Probably the best part about attending Miele Night, besides your chance to win a vacuum, is you get to meet a beardless Kieffer’s Guy.  Hurry though because I’m growing it back ASAP.

Riedel Veritas Wine Glass Tasting

Did you know that Miele’s North American Headquarters is in Princeton, NJ?.  It’s true, and they are always hosting some type of event.  Their next event is scheduled for Monday June 15th from 6-8pm.  And it will change your wine life forever:

Discover how the shape of the glass affects your enjoyment of the wine. Join us for an educational and entertaining wine glass tasting as a Riedel ambassador demonstrates the relationship between the shape of the glass and our perception and enjoyment of wines. Reception starts at 6:00 PM with comparative tasting beginning at 6:30 PM.

You have two ways to register:

Call 1-800-843-7231 ext 1002 or via email, princetoncenter@mieleusa.com.  Tell `em the Kieffer’s Guy sent you!

Bonus: Miele’s “No Better Complement” Promotion

I thought it would never happen!Miele has started a promotion that allows you to receive up to $,1000 towards your appliances. Keep in mind that this rebate is only running from May 1st to July 31st, so hurry in! Like any other promotion, some conditions apply and there are some rules to follow, but we can explain them all and walk you through it. Just give one of our salespeople a call.


Get It While It’s Hot!


That’s all for now, until next time, America!



Sub-Zero and Wolf’s Kitchen Design Contest

Sub-Zero and Wolf Kitchen Design Contest Image

Attention, designers! Do you have an awesome kitchen design that features at least one built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and a Wolf range, cooktop, rangetop, or wall oven? Want to submit your project and not only receive national recognition, but also some cash money? Want me to stop asking questions? Ok, fine.

Sub-Zero and Wolf is sponsoring their 2013-2014 Kitchen Design contest and it’s available for kitchen designers, architects, interior designers, builders, and remodelers plus it’s FREE to enter!

This is a great opportunity to show off your skills and earn some “street cred” for your work. The icing on top is the up to $45,300 in cash and prizes.

There’s just one catch: if you enter the contest because you read this post and win, you have to share a portion of your winnings with me, The Kieffer’s Guy.

But in all seriousness, you can find out everything you need to know by visiting the Kitchen Design Contest website.

Until next time, America!

The Architectural Digest Show — Part 3

Hey Appliance Fans,

We’ve come to the final installment chronicling my trip to the 2013 Architectural Digest Show and I’m glad you’ve followed me on this harrowing journey.  We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and I think we can both agree that we’ve bonded in a way few bloggers and blog readers can.  You should feel special.  I know I do.

I can get a little melodramatic.  Sorry.  Anyway, if you read part one you know I was all about Clark Sorenson’s fully-functional flower urinals.  If you read part two, you know that I was still all about Clark Sorenson’s fully-functional flower urinals.  Some of you may be wondering if I’m being paid by Clark to mention his artwork.   I’m not.  I just think they are sweet:

I want one!!!!!

I want one!!!!!

I also mentioned in part two that part three would reveal the coolest most awesomey appliance at the show.  I will get to that announcement in just a bit, but first:

A crazy thing I always experience in New York is walking somewhere specific and passing really famous stuff unexpectedly.  This trip was no different.  As I was walking to the restaurant where we dined (http://becco-nyc.com), go there if you get a chance, I turned my head and saw…

The Colbert Report

Love him or hate him, it was pretty cool to stumble upon the studio.

And now onto the show…


Two households, both alike in dignity,
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.
From forth the fatal loins of these two foes
A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life…

Call Guinness.  I just broke the world record for most Shakespeare quotes in an appliance blog.  Anyway, Verona is an Italian company that has a variety of cooktop, range, and oven options with many unique size accommodations.  I’m far over due on a blog post specifically about everything Verona offers.  I will absolutely remedy this as soon as possible.  Obviously from the picture, they offer color options.

Ranges, Cooktops, Wall Ovens, a special Verona blog post is coming soon.

Ranges, Cooktops, Wall Ovens, etc. A special Verona blog post is coming soon.


Few things get me as excited as super- duper chillified, obnoxiously cold beer.  Weird huh?  An Irish guy who likes beer.  Perlick does a fantastic job at cooling a case of beer to a viciously delicious thirty-four degrees in about twenty-five minutes.  They achieve this rapid chill through forced-air refrigeration.

`Murica: What’s forced air refrigeration, Kieffer’s Guy?

Kieffer’s Guy:  Great question, America.  Forced air refrigeration is just like convection in an oven but instead of heated air, there’s cooled air.  A fan is located in the back of the Perlick circulating frost-bitten air around the interior.  Couple that with a powerful compressor, and Perlick can get that case of Pliny The Elder freakishly cold in about twenty-five minutes.



Side note: Pliny The Elder is a double IPA brewed by Russian River Brewing in California.  Dying to try it.  Readers in Cali, please mail me some!

Never heard of Perlick?  Next time you’re in a bar (hotel, restaurant, local watering hole, whatever), take a look at the refrigerators behind the bar.  I can almost guarantee that at least one of the units is a Perlick.  My point is that Perlick originally manufactured commercial-grade refrigeration for businesses long before they dove into the residential market.  They know refrigeration and offer a variety of options in under-counter indoor and outdoor units from freezers, ice makers, and refrigerators to beverage centers, wine coolers, kegerators, and refrigerator drawers.  Love it.

Take a look at this Perlick Beverage Center.  I love the blue light.

Appliances fans, now is the time I reveal my favorite, most awesomey appliance at the 2013 Architectural Digest Show.  Drum roll please………………………..3…………..2…………………..1

Dacor WineStation


Wine.  In a wall.  Ready to serve at the perfect temperature while also providing perfect storage for when I’m not pouring myself a glass.  I give you Dacor’s WineStation!!

Dacor WineStation

Oh. My. Goodness.

This beautiful creature stores four bottles of wine and you can pre-program  Dacor’s WineStation to dispense a full glass, a sample amount, or anything between.   The vintage and year of each bottle can be displayed on each screen above the bottle.  Take a closer look at the installation and you’ll notice that you can install this FLUSH with a wall or cabinetry.  This allows for total integration into your kitchen or bar area.  Don’t want to install it into a wall/cabinet?   It can install on a counter.  Simply plug it into an outlet and you’re ready to go.

Dacor’s WineStation is designed to store wine for up to sixty days using an advanced dispensing mechanism and argon gas.  Argon is pumped into the bottle which settles below any air that could get inside.  I’m not a scientist, but because Argon is heavier than air, it rests above the wine preventing the aforementioned air from oxidizing the fermented goodness.  And don’t worry future WineStation owners, there is a lock to keep pesky Irishman like myself (or your kids) out of the grapey wonder.

Dacor WineStation

Each screen displays the year and vintage of each bottle.

I’m so excited to say that soon and very soon, we will install Dacor’s WineStation in the showroom and of course it will be live.  And of course I’ll blog more about it.

That’s all for now; I’m really looking forward to next year’s trip and I’ll be sure to write about it too.  Until next time, America!

It’s Not Easy, Being Blue

Hey Appliance Fans,

Welcome to 2012!  We have A LOT of changes to our showroom that I will be sharing with you in the coming weeks.  We’re expanding our showroom by about 2,000 sq. ft.  So now we’ll have close to 14,000 sq feet of displays!

Just the other week, we completed the installation of a Woodstone Pizza oven in our showroom (I’ll cover this in another post).  It’s live and it makes INCREDIBLE pizza.  Thank you to Brenda Kieffer from www.kiefferscooks.com for making an unbelievable sausage, apple, and maple pizza.

Check out this vicious BlueStar.

You may be asking yourself, and rightly so, “what is the Kieffer’s Guy talking about when he says `It’s Not Easy Being Blue`”?  What I mean is, it’s not easy being BlueStar.  AND I’M JUST KIDDING.  It’s really easy being BlueStar.  I mean, they have some of the most powerful open burners on the market.  Click here for my article about open versus sealed burners.  BlueStar ovens are some of the largest on the market (they can fit a commercial size baking sheet).

I’m sure you know that there is a trend for buying American made products and BlueStar is a HOME RUN because not only are they built in America, they’re built right here in Pennsylvania (Reading, PA to be exact).  For people outside of our area, Reading is about an hour to an hour and a half from our showroom.  I’ve touched on their powerful Nova burners and mentioned that they have an extremely large oven, BUT they are also available in 190 different colors.

BlueStar doesn’t just make ranges.  Oh no no no.  They offer ventilation (190 colors for your hood too), grills, griddles, and salamanders.  PLUS, they offer REALLY cool wall ovens.  Like:

French Door, 190 Colors, Powerful Gas Oven with Infrared Broiler

How cool is that French door?  Now, there’s no more leaning to the side of the oven when you want to put food in.  You can open the door using only one hand so your other hand can hold the baking sheet.  Talk about easy!

I could go on and on about BlueStar, OR you can visit our showroom for:

BlueStar Day

February 15th from 4:30-7:00pm

We’re going to have some refreshments and of course a BlueStar expert on hand to answer all of your questions.  PLUS Wednesday nights are my late night in the showroom which means if you show up, my identity will be revealed!  Much to your dismay, my name isn’t The Kieffer’s Guy.


Thanks to BlueStar, if you purchase any BlueStar range or Wall Oven on BlueStar day, BlueStar will give you a FREE color upgrade OR a five piece BlueStar Professional Cookware Set.  That’s right, I said FREE.

Want to sign up for BlueStar day?  No problem.  Just give us a call and let us know you’re coming.  215-699-3522.  Hope to see you there!
