On the DIY Network Series, Stone House Revival, carpenter Jeff Devlin and his team of restoration experts work with home owners in Bucks County, PA to restore houses dating back to the 1700s.

Below are episode recaps featuring ILVE & Verona Appliances. Check your local listings for full episodes of Stone House Revival on the DIY Network.

1800’s Living Room & Kitchen

Fred and Elizabeth, home owners of an 1800 era stone house, call on Jeff Devlin and his team to restore the historic charm of their kitchen. Before the renovation, the out-dated space sat on a 1950s addition with metal cabinets, knotty pine paneling and linoleum floors. Jeff outfits the kitchen for entertaining and gives it a farmhouse style feel with top of the line amenities, including a 36″ Stainless Steel Verona range.

Guest Post: Blythe & Barnett Kitchen Renovation with Verona Appliances

Hi there! We’re Katie + Cara…two best friends and moms who are passionate about turning a house into a home! Your home is where you come to rest from the cares of the world with the people you love most, so shouldn’t it be the place you enjoy most? The best way to create a relaxing environment is to remove clutter and keep only the things that you feel to be beautiful and have purpose.

Katie recently moved into a fixer upper that had a lot of charm but was in need of a lot of work. The large and spacious kitchen was the main selling factor, but it was also the room that needed the most work.

First up on the kitchen renovation list was to create a neutral backdrop. We said goodbye to the orange toned cabinets and painted them a fresh coat of white. Formica countertops were replaced with a beautiful quartz and the walls were covered in a classic white Subway tile. The kitchen was looking much better but we wanted it to feel more “gourmet”!

To achieve more of a high-end look, we removed the cabinets and microwave above the counter to create a more open feel. We got rid of the dated electric cooktop and instead installed a Verona 30” gas cooktop with a custom built range hood above it. It instantly changed the entire look of the kitchen by opening it up and creating a more modern look! The trendy configuration of the burners and knobs fit perfectly with the aesthetic of the room.

Switching out the cooktop from electric to gas came with more bells and whistles. There’s just something to be said about cooking on an open flame, isn’t there?! With the Verona Gas Cooktop we are now able to heat our food more quickly, and even have the option to simmer soups and sauces on the low heat setting. The continuous grates give us the ability to move around our pots and pans as we cook without ever needing to pick it up off of the cooktop.

We finished off the kitchen with modern fixtures, accessories and added a few personal touches to make it feel more like home! The kitchen is the heart of the home and by creating a relaxing environment we now have a space that we can enjoy gatherings with family and friends for years to come!

Christina Hendricks & Geoffrey Arend’s Eye-Catching ILVE

Christina Hendricks and husband Geoffrey Arend recently installed a 30″ Matte Black ILVE range with brass accents into their NYC apartment, acting as a functional centerpiece for the celebrity couple.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“Space is at a premium in our small NYC apartment and unfortunately our kitchen is the size of a coat closet. We needed the power of a professional range and also wanted something beautiful, because whatever was there would always be viewable from the living room. When we found our black and brass ILVE, we knew it was the only stove that would make us both happy. Now anytime we have company, everyone asks about it. It looks dynamic in our Deco kitchen and it never fails to impress while cooking. It’s truly become a centerpiece for not just our kitchen but also our apartment.”‎ – Christina Hendricks + Geoffrey Arend

Griddle Top Cooking

EuroChef USA offers a variety of cooking accessories to make preparing your favorite meals even easier. Of those accessories, the fully removable Griddle cooktop option, or accessory, serves as one of the most useful tools in the kitchen. Here are our top four reasons why this tool is essential for the at-home kitchen:

griddle

  1. Surface Space: Stovetop griddles have a larger surface space than traditional pans or cast iron skillets. This allows for more food to be prepped at once, making it a perfect option for large families or those who like to entertain!
  2. Griddles Require Less Fatty Oils: The need for less fat and oils during cooking offers the possibility for healthier meals. In addition, much of the excess fat separates itself during cooking and makes its way in to the integrated grease trap instead of being absorbed into the food.
  3. Every meal of the day can be prepared on a griddle: Pancakes, eggs and bacon during breakfast, grilled cheese for lunch or a juicy steak for dinner – virtually every meal of the day can be prepared on a griddle top.
  4. Cooking indoors: Traditional BBQ favorites can be cooked indoors during less than ideal weather, so you can enjoy your favorite foods all year long.
