It's March Madness time again, and you know what that means: I'm spending a lot of time fighting for the right to watch a little "24" instead of basketball. But for those of you who actually care about the NCAA college basketball tournament, Whirlpool wants to make sure the only surprises are on the court--not in the kitchen.
You've seen the, with its dry-erase finish on the door panel. Use the fridge to manage brackets, track game times, or display correct picks.
And even though the magic of DVRs lets you pause the game when necessary, it's hard to make a roomful of fans wait while you head to the kitchen to check the food. So take another look at, which lets you cook foods 30 percent faster than in the oven.
Make sure post-party clean-up runs smoothly with Maytag Jetclean dishwashers. Run the SteamClean option to get dishes and glassware clean without any prewashing. You'll appreciate the extra-durable, heavy-duty stainless-steel racks. Remove the top rack to accommodate oversize items in the lower rack--the perfect post-party move.
The Jetclean line is definitely one player you want on your team: The tough stainless steel food chopper blade pulverizes food to prevent particles from plugging the wash system and spray jets. And the micro-fine filtration ensures that even minuscule particles such as poppy seeds or coffee grounds are captured, preventing them from being redeposited onto dishes.
May your team win--and may your kitchen stay clean!
