Travel to Paris, Amsterdam, Bruges and Brussels any tips?

posted by: toytheatre13 on 08.31.2013 at 12:06 pm in Kitchens Forum

My husband has a conference. And, yes, we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel! We'll be gone for 3 weeks. Does anybody have any tips for kitchen, food and travel obsessed people like us? Is there a market in Paris where you found unique hardware? is there a food item we shouldn't miss? A museum off the usual radar?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Hood Lighting- replacing Halogen with LED (Follow-Up #3)

Yes, there are plenty of "drop-in" replacements. My personal favorite source is (talk to Livingston, he was very helpful).

While I was shopping around for appliances, I came across multiple mentions that range hood halogen lights get very hot and uncomfortable. I had some other questions regarding hoods, and thankfully the range hood company representative I spoke with was very helpful, including advising me personally to get the LED bulbs, particularly for the heat concerns and much longer lifespan.

I'm using these LED's in my new range hood:

It's an exact replacement for the G4 base halogen bulbs that came with the hood. Took only a couple of minutes to replace all 4 bulbs, the hood has swing-out light covers, very easy.

The only comment I can make is that they're a little dimmer than halogens (noticed that when I replaced 1 of 4, it's maybe 10% dimmer), but I have plenty of light in the kitchen, and the hood is on an island, so it's not that major of an issue. And, considering that they're supposed to last 30,000 hours, spending 5 bucks on them is definitely economical.

Love the hood, love the new bulbs! LED is definitely the way to go!

Here's another source - I found it when I was searching to find xenon or LED replacements for my hood halogen lights.. I still haven't ordered any, but I thought it was interesting that on this site they explain all about the different types of bulbs and what you can use instead.

RE: Electrolux Induction cooktop EW30IC60LB (Follow-Up #21)

SweCan, all I can say is I love, love, love my basic Bosch, and I paid less than $1,500 after rebate. Take serious note of herring_maven's warning above regarding depth, especially if space is at a premium. I fell in love with the GE early on, but was warned off here because of the depth requirement. I cannot speak to the Elux, but the Bosch is soooo thin, and allowed me a big drawer directly beneath. Check it out below to get an idea.

RE: Drawer below Bosch 800 induction stovetop (Follow-Up #2)

I have a utensil drawer under the Bosch 800 induction cooktop. It was no problem for the cabinet maker and we have had no issues with it. -- never gets too warm in the drawer. You will notice that the sides are scooped to accommodate the cooktop.
