Range Pans, Drip Bowls, and Cooking Season

cooktop drip bowlThe “cooking season” is fast approaching. Not a bad way to look at winter right? Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day all come rushing in a sweet succession of ham, turkey, roast, pie, cookies, sweet corn… ah, I could just type this stuff all day! And with the food come guests from near and far. No, not a bad way to look at winter at all.

For those of us in the appliance parts industry, this season means it’s time to stock up on oven elements and drip bowls. And boy have we!

Right now we have a ton of the Whirpool universal style chrome drip bowls- part number 3150246 (DP6BR – small one) and 3150247 (DP8BR – large one). And, if you want to get fancy, we also have these exact bowls in black porcelain: part number 3169204 (DP6BRP – the small one) and 3169205 (DP8BRP – the larger one) .

Sometimes you just have to replace these things to get the stovetop looking clean again.

So happy cooking season! And if you need anything along the way remember A-1 Appliance Parts- we’re stocked up and ready to ship.

Whirlpool Water Filter 4396508 Replacements

Brita Whirlpool Water Filter

When Whirlpool introduced it’s bottom front grill water filtration system (a little close to the floor in my mind… I know, it’s just me) it was an immediate success. Refrigerators bearing this filter started showing up all over the place. And people started looking for replacement filters– only to find that they had to go through Whirlpool and end up spending as much on the filters as they did on the refrigerator!

Brita came up with a very good replacement but Whirlpool kept them in court until they discontinued that filter. Yay for capitalism and the free market!

Brita wasn’t the only company taking a swing at this filter though… Supco (Sealed Unit Products) has had a replacement for the 4396508 and 4396510 filter on the market for a few years now. The Supco part # is WF285. Supco’s filter will cost even less than the Brita filter!
