ATLANTA, July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- When constructing the perfect meal, there are 2 main elements that can make or break the effort. First is the food itself, second is the drink to go with the meal. It is essential for the cook to have a range or cooktop they can work with easily. For the other half of the perfect meal equation, a delicious cocktail or perfectly chilled glass of wine makes all the difference. Ice makers and wine coolers help to get these just right. 10rate editors have reviewed and rated cooktops, gas ranges, electric ranges, wine coolers, and ice makers based on a number of different criteria to find the best of the best. After ratings were assigned, editors also gave best value, quality, and budget awards for individual products.
Brittany Rowland looked at cooktops first. These don't include all the features of a full range, and are sometimes the best way to go depending on how a kitchen is set up. Heading up the Top 10 Cooktop Reviews list is the Bosch NGM8054UC. This cooktop received a rating of 9 and the Best Quality editor's choice award. Brittany said, "this Bosch gas cooktop has five sealed burners for multi-purpose cooking. Whether you need to bring water to a boil quickly or let a sauce simmer at a low, even temperature, you can do it on these stainless steel burners. Cleaning up is easy, too."
Brittany also covered the Top 10 lists for electric and gas ranges. Ranges include many more features than cooktops thanks to the ovens included in the unit. These are much more versatile when it comes to preparing the perfect meal anytime of the year. The Whirlpool GGG390LX heads up the Gas Range Reviews list thanks to the "double oven and a plethora of features to make cooking and baking easier. With two ovens, you can bake more dishes at the same time and at different temperatures. Only the lower oven has convection baking," Brittany said. On the electric side of things, the Electrolux EI30EF55GS received a rating of 9.5 and an editor's choice award. Brittany chose this to top the Best Electric Ranges list due to its stylish design. She said, "Open the oven door to this Electrolux electric range and find a glowing blue interior, which adds a stylishly colorful touch to this top-performing model. The smoothtop is simple to clean with a special formula and has expandable elements."
A perfectly chilled glass of wine is the perfect complement to a delicious meal. The right wine cooler is the way to achieve this. The Wine Cooler Ratings list shows the Vinotemp VT-48TEDS as the best on the market. It's "Durable construction and sheer size make this Vinotemp wine cooler a great purchase for any wine collector looking to spruce up his bar or kitchen. The racks are made of a solid wood for extra strength and elegance."
On the cocktail and cold beverages front, it is always important to have ice cubes ready and available. 10rate.com's Ice Makers Reviews list has the EdgeStar IB650SS at the top with a rating of 9 out of 10 and the Best Quality award. Editors chose this model because the "stainless steel front is topped by a black slide-up lid that lets you scoop out ice easily. The ice maker works either as a built-in or a freestanding unit. We were impressed by the LED controls and the ability to adjust the thickness of the bullet-shaped ice cubes."
