Here’s what the bottom drawer of your oven is for

2Z9A7132.jpg

This LG oven has a warming drawer. 


Colin West McDonald/CNET

Over the years, I’ve realized that many people don’t know what that drawer under their oven is for. Some guess that it’s for storage, others say broiling and others claim it’s a warming drawer. Those are all fantastic guesses because — depending on what type of oven you have — it could be any one of those. 

Here’s how to find out what type drawer you have in your kitchen.

Warming drawer

A warming drawer is super easy to identify. Take a look at the buttons on your oven. If one of them is labeled “Warming Drawer” then that’s exactly what you have. Anytime you need to warm a pie or a loaf of bread — or you just want to keep dishes warm while the rest of the meal finishes cooking — pop it into the warming drawer and push the warming button.

Broiler

Broiler drawers are typically found on gas ovens and are very narrow. 


Chris Monroe/CNET

If you have an oven heated with natural gas, the drawer is typically a broiler. To be sure, pull open the door. If it looks more like a retractable pan than a drawer, then it’s a broiler. 

Think of the broiler as an extra cooking area. It’s best for toasting or browning foods like casseroles or breads. Any item placed in the broiler will burn quickly, though, so check on it every couple of minutes.

Storage drawer

A storage drawer is usually much deeper than a warming drawer or broiler.


Chris Monroe/CNET

If there isn’t a warming button and the area looks like a deep, empty drawer, then you probably have a storage drawer. This is a good place to store cast iron pots and pans because the warmth from your oven will help to keep them rust-free. Just be sure not to store plastic items in this drawer because they may become warped due to residual heat. 

Likewise, some older ovens have little insulation and may heat your metal cookware when the oven is on. As a precaution, always use oven mitts to remove cookware during or after your oven has been on.

Restaurant review: You’ll want to come back for 2nds at Fred’s Market

LAKELAND – It’s not right to wade into the merits of Fred Johnson’s restaurant acumen without a bit of background.

His parents, Elton and Evelyn Johnson, started selling sandwiches from their Plant City SuperTest gas station in the early 1950s, giving birth to Johnson’s Restaurant.

The late Elton Johnson sold his restaurant in 1977 but continued catering banquets and barbecues for another 20 years. His passions rubbed off on his sons, Fred and Buddy, who opened their first BuddyFreddys in 1980 on Thonotosassa Road in Plant City. They later added a Brandon location.

The brothers parted ways, professionally, and the BuddyFreddys concept was purchased by a Scottsdale, Arizona-based corporation that eventually operated some 17 BuddyFreddys throughout Florida, though only one remains, a Plant City operation on Goldfinch Drive.

Fred Johnson has continued in the business and currently operates a Johnson Barbecue restaurant in Plant City and four Fred’s Market Restaurants in Plant City, Riverview, Lake Mary and Lakeland.

Ordinarily, I avoid buffet-style establishments, out of respect for my waistline. But duty called, and I returned to the Lakeland Fred’s to catch up on this beloved eatery, which last was visited by a Ledger reviewer in April 2013.

The concept of all-you-can-eat buffets remains alive and well in much of the nation, and for good reason, especially for families with young children looking for value over quality. The thing I like about Fred’s is the quality, and while it remains friendly to children, the place is quite conducive to adults seeking a fine, country-style feast, in relative peace and quiet.

That’s not to say things are slow. The place was perking along busily well beyond the noon rush on a recent weekday, as customers filed back and forth to the star attraction — a buffet line some 30 feet long overflowing with a cornucopia of goods. Nothing lavish, but breathtaking all the same.

Fred’s is no ordinary steam-table operation. It’s much more like a family gathering, the food delivered in bowls, skillets, baking pans and Dutch ovens. Much is familiar, though a lifelong city dweller might not know what to make of the cauldron of grits sitting next to a container of bright-red tomato gravy, which adds a fresh, tangy touch to the splendid, creamy porridge of ground corn.

The array of dishes is a bit dizzying, to be honest, and some things change from day to day. Breakfast is a totally different menu, but lunch and dinner menus vary only by a few dishes. For my money, the lunch menu is a grand bargain. For less than $12 you can mosey up to the long table, and the nearby salad and dessert bars, as often as you dare.

It’s only $10 to make a single visit to all three tables, but trust me, you’ll want to sneak back to sample a few tidbits that you overlooked, or couldn’t fit on your plate, the first time around.

Much on the menu reflects the recipes of Johnson’s youth, and reminds me of the sort of church potluck suppers I experienced during my early career in north Georgia. Much of what I sampled at Fred’s tasted garden-fresh, especially the stewed collards, prepared with nary a trace of smoked pork or turkey wings, but addictive nonetheless.

Ditto with the skillet cornbread stuffing, sweet potato casserole, crackling-crisp fried chicken, the pots of tawny rutabagas, green beans, black-eye peas and fork-tender Swiss steak prepared country style — floured, browned and simmered in brown gravy. And so much more.

Needless to say, you’ll want to save room for desserts like pecan pie, red velvet cake, and on and on.

I was struck by the quiet efficiency of Fred’s food runners and servers, who keep the bars stocked and wiped clean. Hot foods stay hot, from my experience.

Fred’s Market remains a destination for Southern staples, a place where you can sample bits of this and that, and go back for more of what makes you happy, which, in my case, was more than I care to admit.

Now’s the Best Time to Buy a KitchenAid Stand Mixer

Modern dishwashers are marvels of appliance engineering. They use scalding water to kill bacteria, potent jets to scour food remnants, and enough insulation to keep the whole operation from emitting airport-like levels of noise pollution. Unfortunately, no dishwasher has been invented that can overcome improper loading of the interior. And contrary to popular belief, cramming everything you can into the racks isn’t ideal. Consumer Reports looked at the right—and wrong—way to fill up the appliance, and their tips can almost guarantee spotlessly clean dishes.

If you have an older dishwasher, you’ll want to pre-rinse to eliminate larger food chunks. (Modern models generally don’t require this step.) You’re probably already placing cups and glassware on the top rack, but be careful not to overcrowd it with too many items. In addition to increasing the risk of breakage, an overstuffed rack doesn’t allow water and detergent to circulate easily.

Bowls typically go on top, but not all of them should face the same direction. Put bowls in the back facing forward and put the ones in front facing backward. That allows for better water penetration. (Plates on the lower rack can all face the same way.) If you’re washing plastic containers, keep those on the top, too: the heating element under the bottom rack could warp them.

Glasses are washed inside a dishwasher

For silverware, you always want to have the business end of your forks and spoons facing up. Knives, however, should be loaded facing down so you don’t risk cutting yourself when pulling them out. And be sure to mix up your utensils, since having all spoons or all forks in the same compartment can lead to “nesting,” where they collapse together. That prevents some surfaces from getting clean. Spatulas and other long-handled tools should be placed horizontally so they don’t slip through the rack and block the spray arm from turning.

Larger items go on the bottom rack—which you’ve probably figured out yourself—but be careful not to put items with flat surfaces like cutting boards in the middle. Those should go on the sides so they don’t block the water spray.

Avoid putting in anything made of brass, bronze, wood, or larger kitchen knives, which can be damaged by high heat and harsh detergents. You’ll also want to run your hot water in the sink so the dishwasher cycle starts at a higher temperature. And don’t forget that many dishwashers have an adjustable upper rack to accommodate taller items on the bottom.

My KitchenAid Hand Mixer Is the Most-Used Appliance in My Kitchen, Period

I divide my life in two eras: before buying my KitchenAid hand mixer, and after. As a kid, I went from Easy Bake Oven cakes to semi-homemade sheet cakes (boxed cake with homemade frosting) to dozens of cookies with the help of my mom’s trusty hand mixer, which was always a little covered in flour and stored in the upper cupboard to the right of the sink. It wasn’t until I went to college and had a (KitchenAid-less) kitchen of my own that I understood how important that thing was. I learned the pain of manually hand-mixing baked goods, my arm cramping up trying to cream together maybe-not-quite-room-temperature butter and sugar for blueberry muffins or attempting to whip egg whites for my mom’s savory rice pudding soufflé when I was particularly homesick. I was lost without it.

Everything changed on a random day in 2009 when I drove (slightly over the speed limit) to the local Bed Bath Beyond because I had brownies to bake for a friend’s birthday. Armed with two 20% off coupons that we kept in a stack on top of the fridge—THEY NEVER EXPIRE!!!!—I grabbed the first one that I saw and went to the checkout. Back then, there weren’t 100 colors to choose from, so I have a very utilitarian-looking black and stainless steel version; if I could buy a new one today, it’d be this adorable BOYSENBERRY number ($38 on Amazon). It remains my most-used appliance to this day, even though I got a used full-size KitchenAid stand mixer later that year on Craigslist for $75.

cheesy dip

Mix up spicy cheese dip in seconds with an electric hand mixer when you forget you invited people over (and don’t feel like breaking out the food processor).

But you’re not here for a long-winded story about how I got my first hand mixer. (Too bad; I already told it. If you’re still here: I promise real advice is coming.) You’re here to find out why a hand mixer is the kitchen upgrade you should make sooner rather than later. It performs the basic tasks of a fancy stand mixer for less than ¼ of the price! Yes, it will make creaming butter and sugar together for virtually any baked good easier, but it also makes super creamy dips, whips egg whites into meringues or omelet soufflés, or even emulsifies salad dressings. I use mine for everything from whisking eggs for a brunch casserole to shredding cooked chicken for salad in seconds. (Watch the magic happen here.)

It makes the creamiest base for pimiento cheese (before you fold in the cheddar) and lump-free deviled egg filling. If I could attach it to my hand permanently like Edward Scissorhands, I might. That’s how dedicated I am to it. But since that would make Instagramming Alison Roman’s salted butter chocolate chunk cookies and typing stories like this near impossible, I’ll stick to storing it within arm’s reach. But maybe in the future, I’ll have an Inspector Gadget arm with kitchen tools attached. (Black Mirror, I’ve got a pitch for you.)

Buy It: KitchenAid 5-Speed Ultra Power Hand Mixer, $37 on Amazon.

Now, break it in with this sheet cake:
