Why You Should Update Your Kitchen Appliances Before Thanksgiving

    Why would your kitchen appliances need an update before Thanksgiving?

    Well, Thanksgiving is an extremely busy time for most kitchens.

    You don't want your kitchen appliances to wear out at just the wrong time.


If your appliances show any signs of not working properly, you should definitely get them examined by a professional repair service before Thanksgiving arrives. You’ll likely thank us later! The cost of repair is far less than that of replacement, so you really have no excuses!

Listed below are some of the most essential kitchen appliances for Thanksgiving and why they should be kept in good working order:


Most dishwashers last about a decade before they start to deteriorate. With that said, look into the life expectancy of your dishwasher and then decide if you should have it repaired or if you should just buy a new one.

Repairs shouldn’t hurt your pocketbook too much (especially if it is still covered under warranty!). The parts on dishwashers that usually need repair are: the motor, circuit breakers, and water supply lines. Luckily they don’t cost that much to repair.

Food Processor

This is a common kitchen appliance, and if you don’t have one, you should consider getting one; they are good for chopping and mincing, which you’ll likely be doing when preparing your meal on Thanksgiving.

Some warning signs that your food processor may be wearing out are loud, ugly grinding noise when being used. There are a lot of possible causes for this, but the problem is usually the drive belt or gears. If you have the know how, you can check these parts for yourself.

Electric Grill

My family loves to use our electric grill to prepare meals, and Thanksgiving is no exception. They make meal preparation more fun and easy. However, the components of these awesome grills can sometimes break or stop working completely.

If this happens to you, then stop! Electronic appliances can be dangerous if they aren’t working correctly, especially if you aren’t aware of all the safety guidelines. In addition, if your grill is still under warranty, you would very likely void the warranty if you took it apart yourself. Therefore, any necessary repairs would be well worth the cost.

Last, but not least, is your microwave. What would we do without our microwaves? As important as they are, it’s they actually aren’t too difficult to fix. Often times the only fix needed requires a volt ohmmeter, which you can buy at any hardware store. If your machine does not start sometimes or if it isn’t heating food as well as it should be, it can usually be fixed without much difficulty by professionals.

These are just the basic appliances, make sure you take a good look at ALL of your kitchen appliances and make sure they are in good working order. The last thing you want when you’re hungry on Thanksgiving is stress about broken appliances!
