5 Optional kitchen appliances for your everyday needs

By | February 1, 2013

Whether you’ve moved into a new home or remodeling your current kitchen you can always overlook a few things that would be essential for your culinary creativity to grow as well as give you better control over your work space. I’m not talking about the major appliances like our beloved Stove or Fridge, but instead the small appliances that are popular enough to be standard and those that we simply don’t think of until the time comes that we need them.

In today’s world we don’t always have time to cook, and reheating leftovers in an oven is also not an option if you’re strapped for time. Let’s say you want to have a movie night, the microwave is your friend from popping popcorn to defrosting your frozen meals. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and features to fit everyone’s needs and are usually standard in every household.


These things make breakfast a breeze and most of them allow you to regulate the heat settings. Which means you can make some fluffy pancakes on the low settings and turn it up to include yourself some bacon and eggs. They also come in a range of sizes so make sure to start simple.



I know a lot of people out there that would rather push that snooze button for another half an hour than to get up and make themselves some toast and waffles for breakfast. Pop in some bread and after you’re done washing up you’ll have yourself a breakfast sandwich with a little extra work.

Although they’re optional they will save you time and money. Isn’t it better to put that coffee maker into drive while you start getting ready for work and enjoy your brew, rather than stand in line at the store to overpay for a cup of coffee. Coffee makers differ from simple ones to espresso machines that taste like your favorite Starbucks.

It may not seem like something that would help too much with on the spot cooking but when left on all day it’s great to come home to the smell of a meal in the air. Seems like a sci-fi movie I know but it’s possible, just throw together something before you leave for work and come home to a ready to serve dinner with a lot of different recipes.
