Ultimate Kitchen Faucet Comes With a Five Year Warranty

( — January 23, 2017) Coeur d’Alene, Idaho — Ultimate Kitchen is a well-known producer of kitchen accessories. The range of their products includes various knives, knife sets, soap dispensers, baking mats, faucets and other kitchen products.

As e-shopping became quite popular, Ultimate Kitchen started selling exclusively with one of the biggest e-commerce platforms. Now everyone can become an owner of an Ultimate Kitchen vacuum sealing food storage system or their decorative coffee press, as the company is a partner of Amazon. Using Amazon Prime also brings benefits for clients such as a free two-days shipping.

The Ultimate Kitchen faucets received good reviews on Amazon averaging between four and five stars. Ultimate Kitchen’s kitchen sink chrome finished faucet received 4.7 out of 5 stars.

That is a UPC certified faucet with a ceramic disc valve that creates a watertight seal. That is an Ultimate Kitchen’s solution that ensures the proper work of the no-leaking technology. Ultimate Kitchen also achieved the flow rate of 2.2gpm at 60psi water pressure. That is higher than the customer could have in a standard faucet. Moreover, this flow rate makes the usage of a kitchen sink faucet more effective.

Among the distinctive features of Ultimate Kitchen sink faucet stands a five year replacement warranty. Every customer that is not satisfied with an Ultimate Kitchen’s kitchen sink faucet can replace it. If a customer is not satisfied with the quality of the product for any reason, this person can ask for a replacement by contacting Ultimate Kitchen.

“One of our top priorities when designing a product is its quality. We are very proud to offer a 5 year warranty for all our faucets as we are certain that our products are durable and will stand the test of time in our customers’ kitchens. We want to show our customers that we care about them every step of the way. Additionally, we want to give them confidence in the quality of our products because we stand by the quality of products we produce,” says Cassie Clark, Director of Operations for Ultimate Kitchen.

It would take just two days for a new kitchen sink faucet to arrive and replace the old one. Ultimate Kitchen also offers detailed step-by-step installation instruction, so their customers don’t need to hire a plumber to install a new kitchen faucet. Moreover, the installation video is also available on YouTube.

The installation guide on YouTube covers all the necessary steps, tools and knowledge that a person without plumbing experience might need to install the faucet. The video lasts 14 minutes, and the installation can be done while watching the video. A customer can pause and replay the video if needed.

A five year replacement warranty for kitchen faucets is offered just by few other companies on Amazon. Ultimate Kitchen sink faucets are designed to serve for years and bring an enhanced style to any kitchen.

Western Nevada Supply’s new showroom aims to ‘inspire’ customers to remodel

Rick Reviglio once promised one of his longest-tenured employees, Gine Nowaczewski, that Western Nevada Supply would finally get a new home-furnishings showroom.

Now, with the December opening of the company’s sparkling new 8,000-square-foot Inspire Kitchen and Bath Showroom in Sparks, Reviglio finally made good on that promise.

“For 30 years, we wanted to have this kind of showroom,” Reviglio said. “Between focusing on other aspects of the business and other things that came up, we never made it off the ground. It was time to make the investment.”

Western Nevada Supply was originally founded in 1964 by Reviglio’s late father Jack, and Bill Higgins, as a plumbing supply shop on Glendale Avenue in Sparks.

The previous showroom, situated upstairs in Western Nevada Supply’s existing building at 950 S. Rock Boulevard in Sparks, was barely adequate, Reviglio admits. Among the inconveniences, he said guests had to walk up what even he called a “treacherous” staircase just to get to the showroom.

Reviglio explained the company wanted to wait until it was financially sound before it took on such a project. They learned some hard lessons about spending and borrowing money during hard times, including the recession.

“We told ourselves we’ll never have the kind of debt we had in the past,” Reviglio said. “This time it was about saving up and prioritizing our capital expenses to plan for this project.”

Reviglio declined to disclose the cost of the project that started last January and took 10 months to complete.

Once he and his staff felt comfortable going forward with the concept, they visited showrooms in at least 15 major markets around the world to get ideas. The cities they visited included New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Venice, Italy.

Don Mackey Architecture, a local firm, designed the new building. Another local company, Dianda Construction, was the general contractor. All but one contractor were local. David Hawkins Design Management in Ohio served as interior designer.

Paintings adorn the sales offices and inspiration quotations are strategically placed around showroom walls to inspire customers.

To accommodate the larger showroom, Western Nevada Supply added a front desk receptionist and doubled its sales staff from four to eight. Nowaczewski has been part of the sales staff for 20 years.

Reviglio touts the Inspire showroom as at the level of any in the United States, even internationally.

“I would put this up against anyone. It has that ability,” Reviglio said. “Before, if you wanted to go to a showroom like this you might have to go to someplace like San Francisco.”

Since the showroom opened in December, Reviglio said customers have already come from parts of California and as far away as Elko.

The Inspire showroom features dozens of different styles of sinks, faucets, toilets and bathtubs. Very modern additions include a towel rack that doubles as a heating agent to keep towels warm, for instance.

At demonstration stations, customers can try out such things as 48 different working shower heads from multiple brands..

“We probably have at least 25 bath tubs, along with 30 different toilets, and around 200 sinks and 20 vanities,” said Jeff Mecca, manager of the Inspire showroom.

Western Nevada Supply called its new showroom “Inspired” to entice customers not only to shop for a simple home project, but to offer inspiration for major home renovations.

“We cover the whole spectrum from the tight budgets to those with high end homes,” Reviglio said.

The new showroom is the final step on a two-year long process to update Western Nevada Supply’s existing building, which has included new signage, work on the façade and the addition of a new paint division.

The old 3,000-square-foot showroom eventually will be converted into a conference room plus an employee training area, or used for other purposes.

What really happens at a food photo shoot

We’re in the business of producing mouth-watering, tummy-grumbling food photos: a steaming plump dumpling, a decadent slice of chocolate cake, a nut-coated cheese ball begging to be smeared on a cracker.

So it fascinates me that the images that get the most traction on our Instagram accounts, mine (@aweigl) and The Recipe site (@thereciepnc) (the one photographer Juli Leonard uses) are not the pretty, pristine food photos.

The most popular images are the ones showing the mess and chaos behind the scenes of a food photo shoot.

One of the most popular, and one of my favorites, is a photograph of me plating a green bean salad with my messy living room on full display: its crammed bookshelves, floor strewn with toys and a chair cushion at an odd angle to keep the dog off the furniture. It also doesn’t hurt that it shows my daughter in full pink footed pajamas taking photos from the back of our lime green couch.

Readers also love any image featuring our dogs. Keeping the dogs — Juli’s Doberman, Willa, and Chihuahua Terrier, Franny, and my basset hound beagle mix, Mr. Early — away from the food can be a challenge. As you can see, they are always lurking under a table or angling for a chance to steal a bite. (Mr. Early snagged some Indian-spiced cashews during a recent holiday food photo shoot. I think he couldn’t resist because they looked like Pup-Peroni dog treats.)

I like that those are the most popular images because they show real life. To me, it’s an antidote to the picture-perfect Pinterest existence.

Even though Juli and I pull off those pretty images, what it takes to produce them belies the end result.

Here’s how those shoots usually go down. Juli comes to my house at 9 a.m. Friday, which means I get up at 6 a.m. to start cooking. I cannot count how many times I’ve had to run to the grocery store that morning because I didn’t have an ingredient I thought I had or run to two stores because the first one didn’t have what I need. I’ve even dashed to a housewares store when it opened to get the correct baking pan or sent a panicked email or Facebook plea to borrow a particular piece of cookware from a neighbor.

While I often send Juli a list of the recipes we are planning to shoot the day before, I should phrase my note as dishes I hope we get to shoot. I make the mistake of not fully reading the recipes. I don’t realize something is going to take more time to prepare than I have. And occasionally things go wrong in the kitchen. Chicken burns or custard turns into scrambled eggs, and the food ends up in the trash can instead of on a platter in front of my picture window.

Here’s how you can learn from my mistakes — and advice I should make sure to take myself:

— Always read the recipe in full. Don’t assume you know what it says. Don’t just glance at the ingredients. Map out how much time the recipe will take and see if you can do anything the day before.

— Make sure you have everything you need. Go through your pantry, fridge and freezer and check on what ingredients you have. Check to make sure you have all the pots, pans and kitchen tools you need to execute the dish. Always write a list of what you need from the grocery store or housewares store.

— Don’t forget what you already know. On Christmas Day, I had two kitchen failures. One of them was a grainy creme brulee. I’ve made creme brulee before but this recipe didn’t call for baking the custards in a water bath, which is a safer method for producing consistently creamy custard. Instead, it called for making the custard on the stovetop, a much riskier proposition, and the results showed. The lack of a water bath should have been a red flag for me, and I should have looked for a different recipe. Next time, I will be wiser.

— Don’t beat yourself up. My other kitchen failure on Christmas Day were cinnamon rolls that didn’t rise, which likely means the yeast was out of date or the kitchen wasn’t warm enough that day. These things happen. We switched gears and served something else delicious for breakfast.

— Finally, remember that delicious doesn’t have to look pretty.
