18 GoodLifeFamilyMag.com NOVEMBER | DECEMBER 2018 Where does everyone end up congregating at your house? For most of us, it’s in the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and Mark Pritchard of Ed Kellum and Son says these days it’s often the “showplace of the home” as well. “People want premium products because they look really, really good; work really, really well; and consequently, the food tastes really good, too,” Mark says. Ed Kellum and Son offers premium appliances for the at-home chefs or for those who just want it to look good even if they’re not using it. As the holidays approach, Mark says ovens are especially popular. The newest trend is steam ovens. “Steam is a better transducer of heat,” Mark explains, so these ovens add vaporized steam to cook more evenly and quicker. “You can throw in something frozen and defrost it properly or bake a turkey in half the time – and it’s more moist. It’s great for baked potatoes, too,” he shares. The 48-inch range-tops right in the center of the kitchen can bring the family together. “Everyone can be involved in the process,” Mark says. Someone can be cooking pancakes on the griddle while someone else has the eggs going on the burner. When it’s time to clean up, whether after the family breakfast or the holiday party, Ed Kellum and Son even has dishwashers that will do five loads back- to-back, and it only takes 25 minutes per load. Clean-up can be the biggest down-side to entertaining, but the dishwashers today make it far less painful. Some even have a special cycle for high-quality stemware that won’t affect the glass or the taste of the wine. Whether it’s a built-in refrigerator, some of the newer built-in coffee products, or any of the other high-end appliances you’re purchasing, you can be assured Ed Kellum will make sure to find the right products for you. “Our goal at the end of the day is to make sure we know why you want to buy and then make sure you know how to use what you get.” Since it’s founding in 1948, this family-owned business has been committed to making sure they get to know their customers. Even those who aren’t home chefs can appreciate the aesthetic and financial value for their home, and everyone can appreciate having a place family and friends want to hang out together.
