It’s a formidable task to cook a holiday meal. You had dreams of how it would go: You’d be standing by the stove casually checking on the Brussels sprouts or latkes, glass of cider in one hand while making quippy conversation with your guests. Reality is often a bit different, especially when it’s the Monday before the holiday and all of sudden your stove doesn’t turn on or the burners aren’t heating up. Why do disasters always seem to strike when you’re expecting guests?
But before you resign yourself to attempting to secure a last-minute dinner reservation for 16, consider your other options. While Brooklyn-based AppliancesConnection can’t stop your adult siblings from arguing or bake a Nesselrode pie to perfection, they can rescue your dreams of home-cooked latkes.
“We can provide next-day delivery to the Metro New York area, as well as New Jersey, for any items that are currently in stock at our warehouse facility,” says ApplicancesConnection product manager John Winters.
Founded by two brothers, AppliancesConnection is a one-stop shop for all your home kitchen needs. It would be easy to spend hours in their Bay Ridge showroom where they have more than 23 different kitchen models to puruse. But even if you don’t feel like schlepping or it’s two days before you’re supposed to host Thanksgiving, it’s almost effortless to shop via their website or by phone, where their patient sales associates will ease the nerves of anyone needing to make a last-minute appliance purchase, fully explaining the difference between your stove top options, such as smoothtop electric, induction and electric coil, or your gas options. Their fully staffed call center, which operates 12 hours per day, handles sales, customer service and product service.
“We can help you plan and design your kitchen, deliver and install your appliances and cabinets and provide support throughout the life cycle of your appliance,” says Winters.
AppliancesConnection carries a wide assortment of products, from household brands such as Bosch, GE, Frigidaire, Whirlpool, LG and Samsung to luxury brands like Verona, Thermador, La Cornue, Dacor, Smeg and Viking. But while many companies sell the same products as AppliancesConnection, not many are able to match their level of service. They provide delivery, installation and removal services to most of the U.S. and have a staff of kitchen designers and a full suite of kitchen cabinets.
“We deliver to 13 states on the East Coast using our own trucks. For the rest of the states, we have hand-selected a group of third-party trucking companies that specialize in WhiteGlove deliveries as well as installation. Installation is available for all major appliances and in a majority of the country,” says Winters.
For customers in the metro New York and New Jersey area looking for free next day delivery, you can shop from the comfort of your home. Simply head to their website, where you’ll be prompted when next-day delivery is available, or call in, and the sales staff will inform you of which items are currently available for next-day delivery.
