Holiday Prepping With Best Buy Appliances #holidayprep

The holidays are fast approaching, and we all know that means it’s time for family and friends to gather near. But, we also know that it is time for holiday cooking. Cooking around the holidays can be hectic and sometimes stressful, especially if you don’t have the right appliances for the job. Here in our household we are well aware that the holidays will be here soon, but we also realize that we are in need of some new appliances to help us get the cooking done right.

Appliance Shopping At Best Buy

We have looked lots of places and a surprise place that we have found with an awesome selection of appliances for holiday prepping is Best Buy. They offer a wide selection of kitchen appliances from many name brands. Whether it’s a stove, microwave, refrigerator or dishwasher that you are looking for, you can find it all at Best Buy. Plus, they have a friendly and knowledgeable customer service staff that is there to help answer your questions and put you on the right path.

All I Want For Christmas Are Some New Best Buy Appliances

We are considering a new oven for our kitchen as one of the major appliances that we need to purchase. The one we currently have was in the house when I bought it, and it works okay, but it is old, outdated and small. Since I do the majority of the cooking at home the one thing that I would love to have is a large oven that can handle several dishes at a time. And Best Buy has two that caught my eye right away.

Best Buy Appliances: The Frigidaire Gallery

The first of the Best Buy appliances that caught my eye is an oven from Frigidairecalled the Gallery. It has a 5.4 cubic feet convection oven, which is great for cooking several dishes at once. What attracted me most was the five elements on top. Speaking from personal experience, there have been several occasions when I was cooking that I could really have used a fifth element to cook on. Four is good, but it just isn’t enough sometimes. The elements are smooth top and uses induction cooking, which means no messy spills running down under the eyes and getting baked onto the top of the oven.

This oven also has a delayed baking setting that allows you to cook when it is convenient for you. Let’s say you start to cook your green bean casserole and realize you forgot to pick up some cranberry sauce for your meal. You can put the casserole in the oven, set the delay, run to the store and get your cranberry sauce and not worry about either setting the house on fire or forgetting to put the casserole in the oven when you get home. Convenient, huh? Plus, Frigidaire makes wonderful appliances. We currently have a Frigidaire washer and dryer that we love. They both have been super and we have not regretted the purchase since we bought them. We would definitely buy Frigidaire appliances again.

Best Buy Appliances: Whirlpool Oven

The second oven I liked is a gas oven. I have never used a gas oven before, but I know a few people who have and they swear that gas ovens are the way to go, so I am seriously considering it. This one is a Whirlpool. Although I can’t say I personally have owned any Whirlpool products, my grandmother had a Whirlpool refrigerator that she used for as long as I could remember, and it never gave her any trouble. What attracted me most to this oven was the cast iron grates that cover the entire width of the cooktop. I just thought it looked cool. The grates are also dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. This oven also features a double broiler, which can be used to cook two huge items at once, such as a turkey and a ham. I also liked the up-swept design which keeps spills from running down the front of the oven and streaking the door. You can also set a lock on your controls which prevents someone from messing with your settings and destroying your cooking masterpiece.

Both of these ovens are self-cleaning as well. I know me, and I know in order to make an omelette I have to break a few eggs {and spill them all over the place}. Who said cooking was easy? Plus, accidents happen more often for me than the average person, but you get what you get. 😉 So, a self cleaning oven is a must for me.

Decisions, decisions! Both of the Best Buy appliances that I featured here are great and have great features that I love about them. I don’t know which one I want more. Anyway, these are just a couple of the ideas that Best Buy has to help get you through the holidays with less stress, less mess and a lot more time with the family.

  1. Our current oven is gas, so I guess I’d pick the Whirlpool gas oven. I am with you, I’d be more than happy to get a new oven or any new appliance for that fact as a Christmas gift!

  2. I do a lot of my shopping at Best Buy. They definitely have a lot of great gift ideas!

  3. I really need a new fridge. Ours just isn’t big enough. I’d like a new stove and cooktop too!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      We need to replace all of our major appliances in our kitchen. The first ones will be the stove and fridge.

  4. I really need some new appliances. We own our home and it came with the stove and fridge. They look like 70’s models. I can’t stand them!

  5. I would love a new stove and refrigerator. I live in an apartment that comes with an old stove and old refrigerator and you are only entitled to new ones after like 2o years unless you buy your own.

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      Wow! That is a long time to use a stove and refrigerator. Do they replace them if they break?

  6. I could really use a new stove and oven combo. Ours is getting old. I really want a smoothtop and a double oven would be great!

  7. The double oven is so neat! I can’t imagine how much time it would save to be able to cook two things at the same time.

  8. Best Buy is one of my favorite places to shop for appliances. They have the best variety and so many great deals!

  9. Rachelle J says

    I love visiting a best buy store when doing our holiday shopping! I’ve never thought about getting new appliances there, I will now!

  10. I’m moving this Winter, and considering this post I think I need to take a look at Best Buy… but I’ll be in trouble if I love everything there, cause I’m not fast at taking decisions!

  11. Lisa Bristol says

    If i could choose to have one of these fabulous items it would have to be the Whirlpool Oven. I love the look of these appliances.

  12. I would love to have a nice oven for holiday cooking. It’s so hard to manage with an old appliance.

  13. They both look great for holiday baking! I’d like the whirlpool one!

  14. None of those appliances would work for me since I have a cooktop and separate oven but I’m sure Best Buy would have something else that I would love. They always have a huge selection of appliances.

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      That is true. I am sure they have more things that will definitely work for your needs.

  15. that looks like a nice stove. This is awesome for the holiday. best Buy is the best

  16. That looks like a powerhouse of a stove. I really need to look into a new one.

  17. looks like a great stove. love the look nice.

  18. Those are hard decisions. Can’t wait to see which one you get.

  19. I would love a new oven for all my holiday cooking. I need to get hubby into Best Buy and start dropping hints!

  20. I think every mom dreams of new appliances for Christmas. The Whirlpool line is fabulous

  21. This is so nice! Can I say that a stove is pretty? Because this is pretty. 🙂

  22. These ovens are so pretty, it reminds me that mine is gross! I need new appliances.

  23. I want a double oven!! Wah. Yep, that’s whining, but it won’t get me the double oven. 😉 I think those look so convenient, I can think of a million ways to use them too.

  24. So beautiful I’ve always wanted a stainless double oven. My SIl has
    One and I’m super jealous! They are fantastic !

  25. We just built a home and purchased all new appliances. The only regret I have is that they are not gas, but our new neighborhood didn’t offer it.

  26. I love my double ovens and could never imagine going back to a single. While I don’t need a new oven, I am hoping that Santa brings me a new fridge for Christmas. I will have to send my hubby to best buy to scope out what they have.

  27. I would love to be able to boil water that quickly!

  28. I would love to have the Whirlpool gas Oven. I had a gas oven in my last house and i miss it.

  29. Seriously, I would do ANYTHING for a new oven! Especially one of these stainless steel one’s!

  30. I want a double oven so bad. It would make my meals so much easier to prep. I am not much of a baker but I use my oven for a lot of cooking.

  31. One double oven for me please! I love that they are slashing prices already.

  32. I am in need of a new stove/oven to replace the white ones that we got with the house, but I think the dishwasher needs replacing first – it is SO loud! We bought our new fridge from Best Buy, so we’ll totally go back to finish the kitchen!

  33. I have always wanted a double, stainless steel oven. My SIL has one and I am so envious. These look amazing.

  34. I have always wanted a double oven! On my wish list!

  35. That double oven is so calling my name! It wants to come home and live in my kitchen!

  36. Best Buy has a lot of great appliances! I know that their employees will help and make sure I get the right appliance for my family!

  37. I love the double oven. Having that stove might turn me into a baker! LOL!

  38. I’ve been wanting a double oven for a long time. I’m hoping to renovate my kitchen next summer, maybe then I can get one.

  39. Best Buy is a great place to shop! Especially with the holidays coming up, appliances that work are a must! 🙂

  40. I might as well put a double oven on my bucket list because it needs to happen. It would make life ever so much simpler.

  41. Personally since I love to bake, I would go for the double oven. The fact that it’s gas is great, and I like the style of it better. The real question is which do you prefer? I think if you like to cook/bake a lot at once the second would be a better choice.

  42. Best Buy is my favorite one stop shop! I’m there every weekend for something new!

  43. I seen the double stove at Lowe’s the other day and really like it. If we didn’t rent then I would probably get one. Once my husband retires (from the military) I will definitely be checking out some new bigger appliances.

  44. Sherry Compton says

    Hard choice but some great options. I don’t think about Best Buy for appliances but wonderful…they are a go to place for other items so it makes sense. I’ve never used gas but heard really good things about the way it cooks. Both are good name brands and big. I know many that could really use a double oven and I love the feature of keeping the door clean. Good luck and happy cooking.
