A new kitchen is a big investmentso it makes sense to choose a trusted brand and a kitchen that was rated highly in our lab tests.

To find the best and worst fitted kitchen companies, and the kitchen cabinets worthy of a Best Buy accolade, we’ve surveyed thousands of kitchen owners and assessed kitchen units from almost all the big-name brands in our lab, including Ikea, John Lewis and Wickes. 

To become a Best Buy, a kitchen had to score more than 70% overall. Our overall scores incorporate both lab-test results and customer feedback.

The top-scoring brand achieved 79% overall, while the lowest score was 57%.  Only brands achieving more than 70% overall were awarded Best Buys.

Share my Garden

michael jhon

The seed swap in early March was the last time that I was out in public, and today, because the weather is cold and rather miserable, I’m feeling a little caged in. Not so the plants in the garden, the rain has catapulted them into growth. Every year I intend to stake the perennials in my borders before their heads flop forward or their stems break in the wind. Oh, I’m full of good intentions! But once again I got round to thinking about it only when the growth was already lush and threatening to be out of control. The wind broke off two delphinium stalks and I went online to see what supports I could buy.

The new supports came this week and now the delphiniums have been crammed into tall peony cages – if I have to be on lock down I’m not going to do it alone!

Diddy Builds Massive Garden Monument In Honor Of Kim Porter

michael jhon

It’s been over a year since Kim Porter unexpectedly passed away and Diddy has spent lots of time reflecting on their relationship in his garden. The mother of his children was so significant to him that he had a massive statue built for her in her honor, he reveals. He even speaks to her shrine from time to time.

While on an Instagram live session with rapper Fat Joe, Diddy shows off the dedication he had made for Kim before her untimely departure. He says he had it built three years before her death after being inspired by her on a spiritual retreat. While showing off the massive shrine, Diddy warns viewers watching to cherish “the one” for them because he still has regrets over the way he treated Kim while she was here.

Top 5 germiest places in your kitchen and how to clean them

michael jhon

The kitchen’s the heart of the home, but, according to Dr. Charles Gerba, a microbiologist and professor at University of Arizona, it’s also the heart of its germs. Between prepping and cleaning, the kitchen is a veritable incubator for bacteria. Here, Gerba (his nickname is Dr. Germ, BTW) revealed the five germiest places in your kitchen.

1. Kitchen sponge

“The kitchen sponge is wet and moist, always soaking up coliform bacteria. It’s like bacterial heaven,” said Gerba. In addition to coliform bacteria, Gerba also found 15% of sponges in a random study had salmonella growing in them.

Solution: Use paper towels to wipe up spills. Clean counters with an antibacterial kitchen wipe like Lysol or Clorox. Make it a habit to microwave thoroughly wet sponges for 1 to 2 minutes every day to sanitize them.

2. Kitchen sink

Kitchen Islands & Carts –

Pantries, Carts and Islands

Pantries, carts and islands offer great ways to add storage and functionality to your kitchen. To find the best item for you, consider your needs and available space.

A food pantry has a closet-like design and provides storage space for shelf-stable foods, such as canned goods, rice and other grains, flour, sugar and oil. As you shop for a pantry, pay attention to dimensions and how shelves are arranged to make sure the pantry you choose will make good use of your space.

If you have a large kitchen, a stationary kitchen island is a great asset. Kitchen islands offer ample storage space for dishes, utensils and other kitchenware and can feature wine racks, spice racks or kitchen storage compartments. Many have surfaces that can be used as cutting boards, and some come with bar stools so that they can be used as tables.
