We are talking the must haves.
The appliances you can’t live without. The ones that help you make it through the day. The kitchen appliances that save you time and money.
These are the items we are talking about today.
Do you ever wonder…
How your neighbor makes the best meals in under 30 minutes? Or how on earth did your co-worker have time to make a double chocolate cheesecake after work and still spend time with her three kids?
What coffee maker will make the best coffee? How do I make a great vanilla latte at home so I can save $5 everyday?
How or better yet is there an appliance that can help me make fresh pasta at home? I am tired of hand mixing, there must be something that can make my life easier.
Is there an appliance that can help me with my Keto diet and meal preparation?
You are not alone.
These are all valid time saving, money saving, yummy food creating questions. And the simplest answer is yes.
Yes, there is an appliance that can make your life easier, better, save you time and save you money. All while helping you create the product you are after.
First, I want to say we are not talking about.
Large kitchen appliances like gas stoves, dishwashers, fridges and etc. These are items every home needs. And I repeat needs.
I remember our fridge died on Boxing Day one year and oh, the food waste and headache involved. So having a fully functional kitchen with great large appliances is a necessity.
7 of the best kitchen appliances.
These are small kitchen appliances that will make your life easier. Save you time and money. They will help you get dinner on the table in less time and maybe just maybe make you the best chocolate cheesecake you have ever had.
The Instant Pot.
The most sought after kitchen appliance. In fact, it was on the top of the must have list for holiday shoppers last year. And I can say the Instant Pot rocks! I can cook honey bourbon chicken breasts from frozen in less than 20 minutes.
Not only can you cook chicken. You can make fresh hearty soups, stews, yogurt, cook a roast or steam vegetables. You can even make a double chocolate cheesecake in your Instant Pot.
Coffee makers, they make the morning easier.
All you need is coffee is what my favorite coffee mug says. And it’s true, coffee does make the morning easier. But in the world of coffee who makes the best machine.
Set it and forget it. The perfect kitchen appliance.
Every kitchen should have a slow cooker. Throw all your ingredients in, set it and forget it. Let it do all the cooking. You want BBQ pull pork for dinner use your slow cooker.
You want to make bone broth use your slow cooker. You want to make large portion soups or stews use your slow cooker. I am a firm believer every kitchen should have a slow cooker.
Mixers and makers.
Do you need the perfect kitchen appliance so you can multitask and save time? Are you tired of stirring by hand? Than you need a Kitchenaid Mixer.
I firmly believe that this is a must have kitchen appliance. Partly because I have the fresh pasta making attachment and the vegetable sheet cutter.
The vegetable sheet cutter is perfect for Keto and Paleo based dishes.
Inside or outside the kitchen you need this.
Every home should have a grill. And I am not talking anything too technical but when it comes to summer BBQ’s you need to have a grill. We actually have two and love them. Oh, sorry I am wrong we have three if you count the camping BBQ.
What can I say, even when it snows you will find us grilling up burgers or chicken breasts. We have this indoor grill which works great for grilling sandwiches as well.
Are you a smoothie lover?
Than you require the best blender. One that can blend all your fruits and vegetables into a smooth delicious breakfast shake.
The Ninja Blender series is one of the best blenders on the market today. We use ours every morning and love it!
What is the one small appliance every home should have even if you only use it ten times a year?
Every home should have a waffle maker even if you only use it for the occasional Sunday Brunch and Christmas Morning Breakfast.
Did you know you can cook shredded hashbrowns and scrambled eggs in a waffle maker? You can even grill a ham and cheese sandwich.
There is something about fresh made waffles and maple syrup that just make a morning better.
Have an amazing day,
