About Houzz

Houzz started with a house.

When founders Adi and Alon remodeled their home, they started the way these projects often do: with a tall stack of magazines and referrals for home professionals from people they knew. But after those piles of torn out pages failed to make their dream a reality, they felt stuck. There had to be a better way.

So they built Houzz. A place to browse and save beautiful home photos. A place to find the right design and construction professionals. A place to connect with others who have been there too. Houzz started as a side project but has become a community of more than 20 million homeowners, home design enthusiasts and home improvement professionals—across the country and around the world.

Whether you are starting a complete kitchen remodel or just looking for the perfect bedside table, the Houzz community of homeowners and professionals is here to help. And when you are ready to start your project, Houzz is the best way to get inspired, discover products and to find and collaborate with the perfect architect, designer or contractor.

Dacor Wall Ovens – Did You Know?

  • When we only had 24 and 27 inch wall ovens….did you know that Dacor built the very first 30 inch wall oven ever designed for home use? 
  • Did you know that Dacor built the very first wall oven with rear heat AND a rear convection fan system? 1987 (our Pure Convection)
  • Did you know that Dacor revolutionized how wall ovens and ranges cooled themselves externally and prolonged the life of our computers by designing a “reverse airflow cooling system” Drawing air towards the wall oven when in use and circulating it around the chassis, doors, windows, handles….this is used on all Dacor wall ovens, all dual fuel and electric ranges.  It runs any time the oven is above 200f and shuts off when the oven temp drops below 300 when you cancel the cycle.  The first of its kind in 1987 that is now copied by many other manufacturers. 
  • All Dacor ovens and our dual fuel and electric ranges use a four part convection system that completely eliminates the need for two fans, multiple fan speeds and fans that oscillate.  Consisting of a single speed fan running relatively slowly (for better control) a gentle 2200 watt heating element, a rigid air baffle to precisely control air movement and a stainless steel filter that traps vapor and eliminated flavor / odor transfer when convection is in use. The more airflow you have, the more you need to control, the more you have to control, the more likely you will have hot and cold spots within the oven cell. With convection airflow, more is not always better.

Nickel City Chef – Competition 3 of Season 5 at Artisan Kitchens and Baths

Nickel City Chef, a Feed Your Soul production, is an exciting and popular cooking competition, but it is so much more than that too.

Nickel City Chef offered up the third competition on this year’s schedule at Artisan Kitchens and Baths, 200 Amherst St. Buffalo, NY 14207 on March 24th with a battle featuring De Maas Amber Ale from Community Beer Works. CBW is Buffalo’s only nanobrewery and in less than a year of competition has garnered national awards and recognition. Most recently they took second place in a well-regarded national IPA challenge, a feat previously unheard of for a brewery so small.

Challenging Chef Carmelo Raimondi of Carmelo’s in Lewiston, took on Nickel City Chef Brian Mietus, owner and executive chef of downtown’s well-appointed Bacchus. Judges for the day included Ivy Knight, Toronto food writer and Editor-in-Chief of the lauded Swallow, Chef James Roberts of Park Country Club (winner of Nickel City Chef’s 2011 Battle: Beer), and Chef Chris Dorsaneo of Lloyd, a winner from 2012’s Nickel City Chef series.

As always, the show took place at the stunning interactive showroom of Artisan Kitchens & Baths where the chefs are able to work on Viking and Jenn-Air appliances. Nickel City chef is hosted by Bert Gambini and Chef Mike Andrzejewski. Photography by Wabi Sabi Foto. Video by Brian Mihok.

Nickel City Chef’s fifth season sold out in less than a day. Feed Your Soul, the production company behind the series, seeks to showcase the culinary talent, in the field and the kitchen, that exists here in WNY.
