3 Interesting and Smart Tips in Buying the Right Cooling Partner

Saturday, November 18, 2017

If you're from my era you've definitely seen how things was changed by technology and other things. No body knows how fast everything will be changed but one thing is very much sure, there's always change. In buying appliances or your cooling equipment for your food and other meaty products there's always the idea of knowing it first before having it. It is said that the days of boring, old-fashioned refrigerators are gone and there are more selections when it comes to type, its system and its usage. With that, no body is really sure of the things we are buying and if it is the right choice.

According to Dyeun Zapanta, Sales and Marketing Head of Beko Philippines, households still put great value on the quality of the food that they eat. Despite the hectic pace of today's lifestyle, it is still important to serve only fresh and nutritious meals to your family. That is why your fridge must have all the right features to help you store your food items as best you can.

To help you make the right choice, Beko, one of the largest appliance brands in Europe, gave us 3 interesting and smart tips or things to consider when buying the right cooling partner/ refrigerator.

1.   First thing to know is the type and the size. The first thing to consider when buying a new refrigerator is what type and size best suit your household needs. There are two general classifications of refrigerators- the Static (Direct Cool) and the No Frost. Static refrigerators form ice build up on freezer wall which is the source of cold temperature while No Frost allows you the full usage of the freezer space since it uses cold air to cool or freeze your food inside. Freezer and Fridge capacity varies by model or brand.

For families that buy more of the frozen items like meats and poultry products, freezer space is very critical. Big freezer space allows you to store bulky frozen items over an extended period. This is also ideal if you have a habit of cooking many dishes at the same time with the intention of storing them so that it can be eaten during the next few days. Fridges, however, can be used solely for your cooling needs. This compartment is ideal for storing all your fresh fruits, vegetables, and dairies and drinks.

There are also different types of refrigerators to choose from based on freezer location. Some of the examples are Single Door, Two Door Top Freezer, Two Door Bottom Freezer, Side-by-Side, Bar Fridges, among others.

Before buying, make sure to measure the space first where the appliance will be placed in your kitchen. Refrigerators are usually the biggest appliance that you'll have in your kitchen so it pays to plan the space well.

The second interesting tip to know is about the cooling systems that keep foods fresh and longer. Now that you know the type and size you need, the next thing you should familiarize yourself is the defrost system. Some refrigerators use the Manual or Semi-Automatic Defrost technology. If you choose the manual defrost system, you will need to defrost at least once or twice a week to clean and clear the compartments of ice build-up.

Then, there is also the Frost Free technology, which defrosts itself automatically. It uses sensors to automatically activate the heater to melt ice build-up at the back of the freezer walls, which block the air vents. The fan inside helps circulate the cold air to help freeze the food item inside the freezer or cool the food placed in the fridge compartment.

Beko refrigerators are best in its class as the brand developed the NeoFrost+® Technology. This innovative technology sets Beko Refrigerators apart from the others as it uses powerful Active Dual Cooling systems. It has a separate fan and evaporator on freezer and fridge compartment, which allows two times faster cooling. It also makes it possible for food items to stay fresh longer.

The NeoFrost+® Technology’s Active Dual Cooling System keeps humidity up to 90 percent in the fridge section for longer freshness. It also prevents odor transfer between the compartments keeping the air quality inside at maximum levels.

Moreover, it also keeps the fruits and vegetables fresh and crisp better because of its Active Blue Light Technology. This breakthrough technology continues the process of photosynthesis making it possible for fruits and vegetables to retain their natural flavors and nutritional value for up to 30 days. Still it is up to you which system would prefer to consider.

The last interesting and smart tip to consider is the energy efficiency. Know how energy efficient is the refrigerator your going to buy. Make sure that you get the most of your refrigerators by referring to its energy efficiency factor ratings. Higher the EEF Rating means lower electricity it consumes.

For instance, Beko refrigerator model RDNT230I20VP has 325 EEF Rating consuming only 0.77kW per 24 hours of usage. Other Beko refrigerators are made in with the brand’s environmental vision in mind. These refrigerators have A+++ and A++ ratings. An A+++ refrigerator consumes up to 64 percent less energy than the identical A product. Similarly, an A++ product consumes up to 40 percent less energy than an identical A product. It is made possible with its ProSmart Inverter Compressor Motor which comes with a 12-year warranty.

Be sure to check this information with your dealer before making a purchase since this is one appliance you will use ‘round the clock.

Now that you've known 3 interesting and smart tips. Be sure to check this information with your local dealer before deciding to purchase your very own refrigerator. Remember this appliance is where you'll be storing your food and drinks plus you'll be using it round the clock.

In case you haven't learned about BEKO here's a short background about this appliances brand.

15 Food Selections to Enjoy at Beeffalo

Wednesday, November 08, 2017
15 isn't always the number for payday but knowing that you'll be having moolah on that day is one great of a number to enjoy. And the thing is that you'll be having money to spend in one of the great restaurants in the metro, Beeffalo.

Yes, just few months ago Beeffalo opened a new branch in a little city of San Juan. The restaurant is constructed in a not so isolated area beside a car wash. Not in a commercial center but is a great place to hang out with friends and families. It's a 50-seater restaurant that is already gaining popularity in the area. "We felt it was time to grow the business and reach out to a wider audience. So many establishments in Marikina have copied us so we want to conquer a new area," General Manager, Louie Abad shared.

Beeffalo or Beeffalo by Hotrocks started entertaining guests in 2013 at an obscure area of Marikina. Far away from the busy thoroughfare and was not easy to find. "It was like dining in the middle of nowhere, that was the magic of the place," according to Beeffalo general manager, Mr. Louie Abad. Still, the restaurant's name manage to reached a lot of customers and through the word of mouth their best-selling ribs and steaks were the talk of the town.

Beeffalo's concept is more of a place to relax and enjoy. "We want it to be a place where families can go to chill, have good food, then extended kwentuhan over coffee and dessert," described by Sir Louie. "We'd like to keep the identity of it being a destination restaurant, a place that encourages people to go out of their way to visit," he added.

So to give you more of the idea about their menu I list down 15 foods and beverage that I've tasted, enjoyed and longed to visit again for another round of great food. This is actually based on their serving.

  • 1. Cucumber Lemonade - Natural and it's great for people wanted to have the good old fruit juices. If you're an avid fan of fruit juices better go with the bottomless drinks. 
  • 2. Nachos - For a start if you're still not in the mood to eat heavy, nachos is one of the best appetizers. With Beeffalo's Nachos they have one dip, aside from the salsa, that I like and I'm sure kids will surely love, their spinach dip. Kids won't noticed that it was a spinach. 

  • 3. Biscuit Pizza: Garlic and Mushroom - I'm a fun of mushrooms and garlics and having them on top of a think crust pizza with sauce and cheese all over, man it tastes yummy. 

  • 4. Biscuit Pizza: Margherita - Just like the garlic and mushroom, this one is also appetizing. The crust is just right for the toppings, complementing each flavor and ingredients.

  • 5. Taco BBQ Salad - I'm not much of a health buff but man I really love salad very much. Mixing the tacos with barbeque sauce and the lettuce is a good pair to have if you're trying to get out of the usual carbs and fatty foods.

  • 6. Broccoli-Cheese Soup - If you hate broccoli then you might want to reconsider because Beeffalo's Broccoli-Cheese Soup is a good way to start the meal. A hot, healthy and flavorful soup to warm up the tummy. 

  • 7. Roasted Pumpkin - If you still don't like broccoli then you might want to stick with the usual pumpkin soup but this one is a bit different because it is roasted.  You'll see that the soup is not the common color of pumpkin soups. 

  • 8. Beeffalo Wings - Their wings is an original buffalo style which comes in Hot or Sweet. You can order spicy or sweet or mix and it comes with a blue cheese dip which makes it even tastier. 

  • 9. Chicken Barbecue - This particular dish is one of their best-seller. Like what Sir Louie mentioned this is an old family recipe, so it only means that this and together with the other dishes comes with a secret herbs and spices that makes it tastier and yummier. Of course a Chicken Barbecue is best paired with a Java rice. 

  • 10. Buttermilk Fired Chicken - This recipe is a commissioned recipe of one of the brands and this made it to one of the leading magazine. This is served with creamy gravy, mashed potato or garlic rice. Take note their mashed potato is out from the scratch which still fills in the true flavor. 

  • 11. Baby Back Ribs Full Rack - Now if you're a fun of baby back ribs this one is just a must have in Beeffalo. Aside from knowing that this is one of their best-sellers, it is also I so far is the most affordable baby back ribs. Soft, yummy and it gets you enjoy the flavor. Of course it is also served in single. Advise get the full rack. 
  • 12. Porterhouse - Meatlovers surely will enjoy the feast as Beeffalo's porterhouse is one meat to enjoy. Cooked just right and served just fine.

  • 13. Grilled Salmon (New Offering) - This yummy fish delight is one to have on your table when you visit Beeffalo. Not yet for serving but better watch out for it. Your good excuse for meats. 

  • 14. Brazo de Mercedes - If sweets are heaven I would definitely love to float around. 
  • 15. Dulce de Leche Cheesecake - Another sinful treat from Beeffalo is their Dulce de Leche Cheesecake.

"All comfort food. We are very particular about what we serve, only those that live up to our personal standards and agree with our palates, but nothing fancy. Beeffalo is not pretentious and our pricing is pretty reasonable," Sir Louie pointed out and as I've checked the pricing with its good food and serving Php350 is fair deal.

The woman behind these exquisite dishes is Sir Louie's wife, Girlie Cosio-Abad. Acts as Beeffalo's executive chef, of which she applied her love for cooking and he enthusiasm in providing the best dish. Together with their friend Caren Diaz who handles finance made a good team in bringing Beeffalo to where it is now.

First branch is located at Blk 6 Lot 3 Gil Fernando Avenue, Sto. Nino, Marikina City with contact numbers +63-2-967-6008 or +63939-113-0772.

Second branch is located at #135 Hoover Street, Addition Hills with contact number +63 2 636-5571. Open Monday to Sunday from 11AM to 10PM.
