With having a Fulgor gas range in our full-time home, we were excited to have the FULL Fulgor experience at our new lake home. So without further ado, let’s jump in and see what we chose!
36″ COUNTER-DEPTH FULGOR FRIDGE
Being a lake home and not a home we’ll be living in 24/7, we don’t need a HUGE fridge capable of holding all of our Thanksgiving leftovers. We chose the Pro 36″ counter-depth fridge as it will be able to handle all of our lake-home needs, and then some!
There are a few key features we love about this fridge compared to our ‘at-home’ Kitchenaid fridge.
- The counter-depth size gives a cleaner, sleeker look (compared to a fridge that bumps out into the pathway).
- When you leave the fridge door open (which I do OFTEN) the ‘please close me‘ beep is quiet, whereas our fridge at home yells at me from across the house).
- The water feature is inside the fridge, giving a clean, more stream-lined exterior look (it’s also ergonomically satisfying to use).
- The interior water feature also free’s up room for shelving. In comparison, our fridge at home has shallow shelving to accommodate for the water/ice dispenser on the door
While having the ice in the freezer compartment isn’t as handy, the overall LOOK is nicer, and this is a home where LOOKS take precedence over functionality (personally, I don’t put ice in my water, it’s already cold enough coming out of the fridge).
FULGOR 30″ DUAL FUEL GAS RANGE
Because our kitchen has a smaller footprint, we chose the Accento Professional 30″ Gas Range (propane conversion as we don’t have gas at the lake house). Our range at home is the 36″ single fuel, meaning both the range and the oven are gas. I PERSONALLY find the gas oven feature ‘not my favourite’. However, I also don’t cook. Tim, who does the cooking, loves it.
Another reason we chose the electric oven is because this home isn’t just for our personal use, it will also be a rental home. We need appliances that are as user-friendly as possible.
And daaaamn, is she ever purdy! As mentioned, I’m ‘not much of a cook’, but she does cook a MEAN Kraft Dinner!
Okay, so I’m not one to get excited about appliances, but I’m IN LOVE with the dishwasher. We have an Asko dishwasher at home and I thought IT was the cat’s pajamas…until I met this one.
There are a few things I love about our Fulgor dishwasher that puts it above and beyond the Asko.
- DECIBELS – it’s QUIET. In fact, it’s almost impossible to tell when it’s running. This is important as the kitchen is in our open concept living/dining space.
- The cutlery rack is BIG and flush to the top of the dishwasher. This means it doesn’t take up valuable plate space and is easy to roll out and unload.
Overall, we’re SUPER pleased with the esthetics of our Fulgor appliances and they’re a welcome addition to our lake home.
