Chef Worthy Kitchen on a Budget

If you know me at all, you know I love a good looking, hard working kitchen.

In my house in Virginia, I am lucky enough to say that I have the best of the best – a commercial style range (48 inches!), huge fan, armoire refrigerator, refrigerator drawers in my cabinets, a super quiet dishwasher, and a microwave that can put many ovens to shame it does so much.  And…it’s all KitchenAid.

Now though…I have a house in Texas…and the kitchen is something that I look forward to making my own.  Will money be an object?

Umm, yes.  Money is an object for pretty much all of us, isn’t it?

That’s okay though folks…I’m here with news.  Good news we can all use.

Best Buy and KitchenAid have a brilliant new option for us.

I’ve already been scouting out Best Buy and am trying to narrow down my choices…but it’s SO hard.  I mean…LOOK at those pictures!  The prices are so on point, and I think you’ll agree if you’ve spent any time at all trying to navigate the world of the kitchen remodel.  I’m so impressed!  I think this new line will give so many of us the opportunity to have that great looking chef’s kitchen without blowing our budgets to the point we no longer have money left to cook with.  Check it out at the Best Buy Remodel Page and let me know what you think…I think you’ll love it!

I am a reviewer for Best Buy. The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.
