Moms Love Maytag Kitchen Appliances!

Maytag Moms love this range

Maytag Moms: A Happy Mommy’s Review of the MGR8775AS Gas Range

Mommy Blogger Shell over at {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker recently received a Maytag MGR8775AS Gas Range with EvenAir Convection as part of the Maytag Moms program. Featuring five burners and an industry-leading 5.8 cubic-foot capacity oven, the MGR8775AS was designed to fit maximum cooking space in a standard-sized kitchen range.

An ardent cook, Shell was quite pleased with the advanced features of the range, including the Speed Heat™ power burner and large oven capacity. She raves: “I can even bake two or three sheets of cookies at the same time- and have them actually come out the same!” Shell is just one of many Moms across the country who are in love with their new Maytag kitchen appliances. Check out her entire review at {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker, and click on Abt Electronics’ page  for information or to purchase the range.

This New Year, Back Up Your Precious Memories On An External Hard Drive

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

It seems like we’re never without a camera these days, whether it’s the one in our smartphone or a dedicated DSLR. More than ever, we’re digitally recording our happy memories, hoping to preserve these times for the future. But unlike the days of film photography and prints, most of these memories never leave our memory cards or hard drives. And while they’re easy enough to view on a computer monitor, they’re often not backed up, which makes them susceptible to being lost forever.

Most people never consider the idea that their main hard drive can fail, but permanent data loss is an all-too-common occurrence. It’s also easy to avoid, by backing up data to an external hard drive. Backing up files is as easy as plugging the hard drive in and dragging over the files you want duplicated. Some even have built-in software that automatically backs your system up at regular intervals.

This New Year, get in the habit of regularly backing up your data, because a hard drive will often fail without warning. Whether it’s from a mechanical breakdown or file-corrupting malware, retrieving lost data ends up being either impossible or extremely expensive. An external hard drive will provide you peace of mind knowing all your precious memories are safely backed up. Shop our selection of external hard drives right here.

Stocking-fillers for Those Who Love to Cook!

Friday, December 21st, 2012

The following is a guest post from Stephanie Staszko, a  UK blogger from BathShop321.com. While not affiliated with Abt Electronics, we loved the article and wanted to share it with you, this Holiday Season.  

As Christmas draws nearer and nearer, most of us are finishing off the last of our present buying. However, there is still time to get those you love a few little stocking-fillers and really make this a Christmas to remember. Unfortunately, this can be quite difficult, with personal, thoughtful gifts often being harder to think of, as opposed to the big, obvious things. If you know someone that is passionate about cooking, your job just got a lot easier. Here, I have compiled a list of small culinary appliances you can present to them as stocking fillers and add the final touch to a magical festive season.

Salt and Pepper Shakers

Shake up your seasonal gifts this Christmas with some top of the range salt and pepper shakers. A stylish set of salt and pepper shakers will brighten up the dining table considerably and add a dash of color and excitement to the family’s mealtime experience. This small, yet thoughtful gift will delight the culinary enthusiast or even , as they will satisfy their desire for an elegant and eye-catching eating area.

Oven Mitts

A pair of stunning, colorful oven mitts is always a great gift for the devoted cook. Investing in a high quality pair, with a longer sleeve and better material, will allow them to go between dishes with ease and a confidence that they will not be burned by any boiling pots. If you truly want to impress them, buy a set of mitts that extremely comfortable and snug. This will allow them to operate kitchen appliances with ease, flexibility and ultimately, an increased sense of enjoyment. Couple this with a stylish design that adds a touch of glamour to their cooking routine and you will have found the perfect stocking filler.

Cutting Board

Finding a top quality chopping board in their stocking is certain to delight any cooking aficionado this Christmas. This thoughtful gift will give them a great surface to work from and prepare their delicious meals. By investing in a high quality board, you will be able to give them a tough work surface that is highly resistant to knife damage and will stay with them for years. As well as this, a stylish and modern design will make their eyes light up as they unwrap it and enhance the ambiance and appearance of their kitchen décor.

This guest blog was written by Steph, a long-time cooking enthusiast and keen blogger on the subject. She writes on behalf of Bath Shack, who provide high quality bathroom appliances at extremely low prices.
