Warehouse Discount Center is primarily a purveyor of home appliances and plumbing wares, although it also hosts in-store cooking classes led by experienced chefs. Amidst an outside grilling theatre, using the finet equipment, Chef masters Craiger Van Zee and Chef JoAnn Hecht teach students the finer points of roasting, grilling, and preparing international dishes. Students are able to sample delicacies created and also take home a new set of culinary skills along with information packets.
Chef Craiger has been in the culinary business for more than four decades and heads up his own educational venture, To Grill or Not to Grill. He has taught more than 3,000 students how to sear and season on the barbeque and enjoys sharing his knowledge with groups of all sizes. Chef JoAnn comes from a teaching and catering background and tailors her classes to complement the seasons.
Offering weekday and Saturday appointments, the elegant electricians at Lerman Appliances can come to the aid of a bevy of sick and ailing brand-name appliances. Lerman will dispatch a technician for a one-time basic service call to fine-tune faulty washers, dryers, stoves, cook tops, built-in ovens, and double ovens. After analyzing and diagnosing disagreeable appliances, talented technicians will provide a written estimate for specific repairs and an itemized breakdown of all the parts and labor required. If homeowners opt to have Lerman complete the necessary repairs, Lerman will waive the one-time service fee and apply the value of today's Groupon toward the price of parts, labor, and more expensive repairs that could include servicing stackable washers and dryers, trash compactors, front load washers, built-in refrigerators, and exhaust-fan warmers. Licensed and insured, Lerman Appliances offers reliable service to over-the-hill microwave ovens and dishwashers so you can stop washing the dishes by hand or refrain from buying new dishes to replace the dirty ones.
