May 21, 2021

It is no secret that Memorial Day Weekend is one of the best weekends to purchase home appliances, and for good reason. Having the perfect home appliances can take your summer gatherings to the next level, and make hosting family and friends easier.

Here at Howard’s, we want to help you make this summer the best yet and kick it off with a great Memorial Day Weekend get-together. So what appliances are most important when hosting a great gathering? It might not be what you would think. Here is our complete list of the top appliances we recommend upgrading to this summer if you are planning to host — and bonus is that each of these appliances are a part of our Memorial Day Weekend sale.

Washer & Dryer

You might not expect to see a washer and dryer on the list of appliances needed to throw the perfect summer gathering, but we know that they are necessary! Having the right washing machine and dryer can save you the time and energy needed to host your next party. With a great washer and dryer set, like this one from Electrolux, you will have all of your laundry completed in time and removed from sight.

Newer washers and dryers also run much more quietly, so if you are still putting a few loads through the wash when your guests arrive, it will not cause a disturbance.


Having the right refrigerator in your kitchen can make all the difference for a summer gathering. So, what should you look for?

  • Capacity - Make sure that your refrigerator has enough fridge and freezer space to meet your needs
  • Ice Makers - Do you usually serve cocktails? Do your guests use quite a bit of ice when they are over? Look for a refrigerator with a second ice maker
  • Fingerprint Resistant - If you have children or a lot of people in your home, getting a fingerprint resistant finish on your refrigerator can be a lifesaver
  • Water Filtration - Planning to serve water to your guests? Make sure you purchase a fridge with a water filtration system
  • Wi-Fi Enabled - Need to monitor your fridge remotely? Look for smart features

So, what are the best refrigerators this season? Here are our top picks:

Second Fridge & Freezer

Hosting guests can require a lot of extra fridge or freezer space. If you will be cooking for several people, you will need the extra space. Getting a second refrigerator for your basement or garage can be a huge convenience and will allow you to prep more ahead of time. This top mount refrigerator from Conservator is the perfect model to meet your hosting or day-to-day needs.


A quality gas range or oven can save you time and allow you to cook more at once, making more time to visit with your guests. This Frigidaire Gas Range with Air Fry is just what you need. This range features a quick preheat, allowing you to start baking in just minutes and you’ll love its Smudge-Proof® stainless steel finish that will keep it looking good for guests at all times.


Any summer cookout or get-together results in plenty of dirty dishes. Save yourself cleanup time with a dishwasher that can fit more. Kitchenaid’s Dishwasher in PrintShield™ Finish with FreeFlex™ Third Rack is the perfect model to meet your needs. This dishwasher includes a FreeFlex third rack to allow you to fit more in each cycle and will make cleanup after a party a breeze.
