The Must Have Kitchen Appliances To Own
New year, new kitchen. It’s a nice thought, isn’t it? But if you can’t stretch your budget to a full remodelling, you could still update the look and feel of that most important room in your home with a few key new appliances. Cheer up your kitchen with some new appliances and it'll give you the excuse for some new year entertaining too.
Your new kitchen appliance doesn’t have to be a brand new monster of a fridge. When it comes to white goods, some appliances need crucial space, which means old appliances to be disposed of first. If you only have a spare Saturday and you’re in the mood for a quick upgrade, leave the dishwasher where it is and just give the oven a timely spring clean. Then let’s talk about small appliances that will give you some new serving suggestions, and which you can then also pack away afterwards.
So, to start with, have you been wondering about some healthy food options for 2018? How about a decent fruit blender to give your family that enhancing vitamin boost first thing in the morning. Whether it's a milk-based smoothie or a pure juice drink for breakfast, a fruit blender is a great way to use the whole fruit, and get the full nutritional benefit. Use it for vegetables too, and everyone's digestive system will reap the benefits.
If you’re looking to make everyday life more convenient and you’re catering for a busy family and everyone's out all day, then have a think about a slow cooker. These can be surprisingly inexpensive, and they come in various sizes, whether you need a huge one for a family of 6 or just a little one for one or two people. Leftovers and be transformed into stews, casseroles and soups, and with a bit of creativity you can come up with spicy curries, chillis and other favourite meals that will be ready as soon as you’re home from work. A great investment.
A great cup of coffee is always welcome when a visitor pops in or you have a spare moment. If you want to save money on those coffee shop trips and make a cappuccino or caramel latte in the comfort of your own home, then perhaps you're in the market for a new coffee machine. The range is vast, so consider the kind of uses your coffee machine will get before you take the plunge (no pun intended!). Simple models can have all the features you need for a great cup of coffee, but why not choose one that offers programmable controls so that you wake in the morning to the smell of freshly ground and brewed coffee. What could be better!
Whether coffee machine, fruit blender or slow cooker, decide whether you'll want to leave it out on display, or pack it away in the cupboard after use. Many kitchen appliances these days have a beautiful visual appeal that will make you feel like you’ve upgraded your lifestyle every time you use it. Select appliances that work for your kitchen and your family, and very soon you could have that whole feel good factor of a new kitchen without spending the earth.
