Abt Builder’s Gala

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

This past Wednesday Abt held an in-store Builder’s Gala which brought in over 175 builders, architects, designers, and landscapers to see Abt and get information from all the vendors on what we have to offer. Vendors from each vignette were there, as well as other vendors from our store.

All builders got a one page questionnaire, along with a goodie bag.  By filling out the questionnaire and asking these questions to the vendors, they were awarded raffle tickets for a ton of great things at Abt, including a KitchenAid stand mixer, Scotsman icemaker, pots and pans sets by Dacor and Bluestar, wine coolers by GE and Electrolux, a Viking gas range, Miele vacuum, baking stone, hand mixer, 2 GE microwaves, lunch/ cooking event for Miele and SubZero/Wolf, faucets, Bosch and Jenn-Air dishwashers, and a Thermador steam oven.

To top off this fantastic event, drinks and hors d’oeuvres were provided by Jolane’s.

Thank to everyone that participated!

Frigidaire and Electrolux Recall

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Frigidaire and Electrolux have released news of a product recall that includes Frigidaire and Electrolux ICON smoothtop electric cooktops purchased between Janurary 2005 through August 2010.  As the recall report states, liquid has been known to pool under the knobs on the front of the unit, which can lead to being a fire hazard.

Above is an example of the location of where liquids can pool.

If you believe you have a unit that falls under the recall, please visit Frigidaire’s recall page and fill in the required information. The model and serial numbers for the slide-in ranges can be found inside the oven door on the left side of the unit or on the underside surface on cooktop models.

If you own one of these recalled items, stop using it and unplug the recalled ranges or power off cooktops at the circuit breaker. For full information you can contact Electrolux at (888) 281-5310 between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m ET Monday through Saturday or visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website direct.

And The Winner Is…

Monday, August 30th, 2010

If you have a sweet tooth, then hopefully you were in attendance this past Saturday when we crowned the winner of the Abt/Electrolux Bake Off Contest.  The five finalists were on hand to wow the judges with their creations, and had some samples to hand out to other customers (if you didn’t get a chance to taste the recipes, you can always have one of our freshly, baked chocolate chip cookies that are available during the weekends).  We had the opportunity to sample Andrea’s Peppermint Chocolate Cake, Bill’s Chicago “Cub” Cakes, Renee’s Sweet Tart Squares, Nancy’s Turtle Cheesecake Lollipops and Audrey’s Pistachio Chocochews.

After much deliberation, our three judges chose Bill’s Chicago “Cub” Cakes as the overall winner!  I had a chance to interview Bill and was surprised that he created this recipe just for the contest.  Another surprise was finding out that he and his wife purchased their first appliances in 1978 from Jewel Abt, one of the founders of this company, and they have been loyal Abt customers ever since.  Bill  won an Electrolux dream kitchen, valued up to $7,999.  As an engineer, he appreciates that Electrolux creates is a “well engineered appliances.”

Congratulations Bill!  We can’t wait to see what recipes next year’s contest will bring out!

Abt’s Back to School Products are Head of Their Class

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Abt found the coolest products to get any student ready for the school year.

The Garmin Nuvi 205 GPS will get you back to school—without too many detours. It’s great for college because of its anti-theft feature, battery life, and touch-screen capabilities.

“Computer sales are up in the store right now because they are becoming more affordable and students need them for college. Now is the perfect time to buy a laptop,” according to Winnie in the Sony Store.

A new laptop is a fun way to start a school year. Abt carries a variety of portable computers ranging from Apple to Sony. Perfect for a college student, the Asus laptop is affordable and comes preconfigured with the Windows operating system—ready to go right out of the box! We also carry stylish and functional laptop bags. When I asked David, from small electronics, what is the most popular back to school electronic, he responded, “Laptops. Macs and Sonys. We have the absolute essentials for back to school college students, like laptops, mini-fridges, and small electronics. I just quoted a price on a Sony laptop for a first-time student going to Dayton.”

Abt put some thought into making college eating healthier. We found some small appliances for dorms and apartments that will make cooking easy—even for a busy college student. Cuisinart makes a line of easy-to-use appliances like egg cookers, sandwich makers, and slow cookers that will keep any student well-fed. Looking for a healthy option? The Breville HealthSmart Food Steamer is a must buy. Waring makes a professional waffle maker—a personal favorite. Don’t forget to check out an Avanti, under the counter refrigerator—a perfect place to chill leftovers so they don’t end up looking like a science experiment.

A messy dorm is easy to find on any campus. Electrolux makes a 2-In-1 lightweight upright vacuum, perfect for a dorm or apartment. Having an easy-to-use vacuum around should be the motivation needed to keep any study space clean. Did you know that GE made a portable dishwasher?

College isn’t all about class, studying, and eating. Check out the LG 32″ LCD flat panel HDTV, the Nintendo Wii, and the Samsung 5.1-channel home theater system.

Capturing college memories is a must! Canon Power shot is a great camera, small enough for pockets and most purses—definitely backpacks.

Abt is the first place students (or their parents) need to stop before heading back to school. Preparation is the key to success and we will take care of all a students needs. To see all the great back to school gadgets, click here. – Kelly B.
