On Friday, May 5, 2017, Vent-A-Hood celebrated its 84th anniversary with an all-day event filled with plant tours, Texas barbecue and live entertainment at their Richardson, Texas facility. Following the National Distributor Meeting on May 4, the celebration with longstanding distributors, retailers and suppliers kicked off with an early morning breakfast and a special keynote presentation from Former First Lady, Mrs. Laura Bush.

Mrs. Bush spoke about her “family business” and life in politics, life as a grandmother and her new focus with husband and former President, overseeing The George W. Bush Institute at The George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas, TX. She reiterated that freedom is the main focus of the institute’s initiatives and spoke on the theme of a free enterprise system – a founding principle of businesses in America, such as Vent-A-Hood.

Following the trail of a successful celebration, WFAA-TV News 8 aired an interview with the factory’s President and CEO Skip Woodall, highlighting the company’s commitment to manufacturing in the USA.

Vent-A-Hood also released a video featuring an depth look at the factory and how an 84 year old company continues to grow in innovation and education.

Dreaming in White

Blog Post (Excerpt): The Stove
Blog: The White Farm House
Published: April 20, 2017 by Morgan Ford

So I thought I would talk a little bit about the stove we chose in the recent kitchen remodel since so many of you have asked about it! And, lets face it, its my favorite part of the kitchen!

Why I chose Verona is the first thing to consider. For starters, it is the most used and important feature in the kitchen in my eyes! Previously we had a cheap electric stove with the matching microwave on top, and I will NEVER do that again. Our microwave died within the first few years, and the built-in vent hood was SO loud, we couldn’t talk to each other in the kitchen when it was running. Talk about annoying! And cooking on an electric stove top is just a nightmare. I never knew how much I could enjoy cooking as much as I do now with our gas range. Oh, and back to why we chose Verona, another important factor for me was the fact that parts are readily available. I was worried that with this being an Italian stove would cause problems down the line if something went wrong, but Verona reassured me parts would be easy to get if ever needed. EuroChef USA is the exclusive importer for America and service can be dispatched to anywhere in the county.

It took me MONTHS to decide IF we would be buying their stove, and even longer to decided WHICH stove to get. We chose dual fuel and I found it to be most economical and functional.

I (umm I mean we ;P) chose the double oven because I love the versitility of cooking desert and dinner at the same time. And that I have the option of heating up a such smaller space when I want to bake something quick and small like banana bread for the kids!  I worried the “larger” side would still be too small for those large dinner, but boy was I wrong. The larger side can fit a 25 lb turkey, and still can fit my 9x13in pans! Talk about a win win!

Okay, lastly- why in the world did I choose a white stove? I asked my friends, my mom, everyone which color to chose and they allllll said stainless. Come on now?! No one was adventurous like me I suppose?! Yes stainless would have been the “safe” route, but I like to be different! And truthfully, I have stainless appliances and hate them. I had looked over and over at other kitchens I liked and inspirational photos galore, and the biggest thing I was drawn to was the stove. It is the focus of attention and such a used and important decision! So here she is, the white stove of my dreams!
