Itâs funny how a little upgrade to our home like a new refrigerator can make the whole process of cooking more pleasurable, thereby encouraging more family time, more healthy eating (not to mention saving, because eating out was one of our biggest ongoing expenses last year).Or just grab a little something and do our own thing for dinner, but I grew up with dinner being family check-in time.I mean, if refrigerators had beauty influencers, she would def be one, donât you think? I customized the hardware to get the Brushed Copper handles so that the hardware matches the other finishes in my kitchen (they also offer Brushed Bronze, Brushed Black and Brushed Stainless, and the fridge itself comes in Matte Black too).I really like that the bottom tray on the dispenser has a âpull outâ feature so that larger items (like bowls for oatmeal or soups, or our handy dandy French press) can fit easily.Â I havenât tried this yet, but the dispenser also has âsmartâ features so it connects to your phone and you can heat water up from bed.My mom would cook an amazing meal (my faves of hers to this day are stuffed cabbage and Matzo Ball soup) and weâd sit around our round kitchen table to share a meal, connect and unwind, and I really wanted that for my little family too.[Camping Everything Need Know Wild A You Through About To Scotland In Campervan]
One thing I remember saying to Jason when I was pregnant was that once baby was out in the world, I wanted to start a new habit of having family dinners.The French door is great for small spaces and who doesnât love a bottom-freezer?!?
Another upgrade? This refrigerator has a water and ice dispenser that handles hot and cold water, as well as crushed ice and regular cubes.Ice cream, for example, is not too hard, not too melty.
First of all, sheâs a real looker.Itâs a great size.

There are also little easter eggs like this drop-down tray if I find myself needing added storage.
Â.Before Ida came along, Jason and I would eat in front of the T.V.I LOVE the Matte White â we havenât had to deal with greasy little fingerprints as much and the matte looks more in tune with the modern-rustic vibes in our kitchen and is totally #DistinctByDesign.Not too big and not too small.There is no rotting bok choy in the veggie drawers, or funky moldy cheese in the cheese drawer simply because I can see everything at a glance, making cooking, or finding a quick snack more pleasurable.[In Four S8217pore 50x P30 Cameras Leica 6 Launches Series On Huawei April Zoom]
Ida is six now, and weâve done a pretty good job of maintaining that habit, but we eat out and order in a lot more than I would like.Iâve always loved our kitchen but these new CafÃ© Appliances have really been inspiring me to cook more, the same way that a new work-out outfit can put a little pep in my step at the gymâ¦and if you think the CafÃ© refrigerator is cool, just wait till you see our new stove next month!

Canât judge a book by itâs cover though right? Itâs whatâs on the inside that counts! And there are certain features that this refrigerator has on the inside that make cooking a real pleasure.Jason does a fair amount of the cooking, but both of us want to cook more, and weâve noticed a big change in how often we cook and eat at home since getting our new @CafeAppliances.The freezer seems to freeze in a consistent way.It holds the right amount of stuff but itâs really very easy to SEE everything which makes it easier to keep things clean and organized.Last month I talked a bit about our CafÃ© dishwasher and microwave oven, and today Iâm gonna share a bit about our pretty new refrigerator.[Is Morris Less]
