The pandemic is over and you probably felt that some of the appliances in your kitchen are not as good as they used to be. We can now order anything we want online, so if you are looking to upgrade your kitchen and you don’t know what you need for it, here are six essential appliances that you definitely need in your home.
A good blender will ease your work in the kitchen and opens new possibilities when it comes to food. With such an appliance, you can easily cook sauces, but also soups and pasta for children. A healthy smoothie will become a delight with a blender, and it will definitely be great if you want to host a party.
Choose a multifunctional model that would cut, slice and mix ingredients but also for squashing ice.
One of the most unpleasant ‘duties’ of a chef is cutting ingredients. How many times you cut your finger trying to slice onions? An electric slicer will help you cut onions, potatoes and fruits without risks. Choose a more powerful model of 400 to 600 W. Multi-functional slicers allow you to mix sauces and also to make creams for delicious cookies.
A versatile sandwich maker is the dream of every mother, as it is the best appliance to satisfy the diverse tastes of children when it comes to sandwiches. You can even make waffles or a barbecue, being even ideal to prepare lunch for the entire family. It is practically a smaller grill, allowing you to cook vegetables and meat. Choose a model with detachable parts that would be a lot easier to clean.
For the recipes with egg such as mayonnaise, you will need a large capacity bowl with a mixer. You can also use manual ones but the automated model with a bowl is a lot cleaner and spares you from mixing with your own hand.
A coffee filter is vital for the lovers of coffee, and can also be great for people who like to drink tea. Choose a model with automated programming, if you like the smell of coffee in the kitchen as soon as you wake up.
Even if it is not actually a cooking appliance, the microwave oven is vital for heating cold foods and even for fast recipes. If you like to eat half of pizza in the evening the rest in the morning, heating it with an OTR microwave oven would be efficient and fast.
No matter what appliance you choose, try to become familiar with all the functions of the device. Make sure you are not buying an appliance for a function possible with something that you already have in the house. For example, some people would not need a bowl mixer and a multi-functional cutter, as both these devices have resembling functions.
One thing that is mandatory and connected with all the other appliances is the microwave oven. This is useful for heating all the foods you are cooking with other appliances; so many people say it is a must-have in any kitchen.
