Maybe you’re setting up home, getting the kitchen of your dreams or just want to update your collection of small kitchen appliances. Whatever the reason, keep reading for the 9 countertop appliances you’ve simply got to have.
1. Hand Blender
High speed Hand blenders are great for taking basic ingredients and whizzing them down into delicious soups, smoothies, and shakes. But that’s not all.
With a high-speed hand blender, you can make a variety of foods that commercially sometimes have iffy ingredients – mayonnaise, for example, with its list of preservatives.
With this great gadget, you can make real mayonnaise til your heart’s content, all while keeping track of every ingredient.
2. A Mixer Grinder
There are two options for an electric mixer grinder: a stand mixer or a hand mixer. If you bake a lot, you should probably get a stand mixer. It’s the number-one recommended kitchen splurge for avid bakers, according to our readers. In short, it will make your life easier.
If you’re not a big baker, most home cooks do fine with just a hand mixer for the occasional mixing task — beating egg whites, making whipped cream, or getting a smooth cake batter
3. An Electric Tea-Kettle
Of course, you love a good cup of tea, but even if you don’t, you still need a tea kettle.
Kettles keep water on a rolling boil for a few seconds so you get water at the perfect temperature to pour over your teabag.
They’re also great for boiling the water for your pasta or hot chocolate, and for sterilizing stuff.
Cartgo kettle looks super cool and an auto shut-off at the selected temperature, and the keep warm function is super handy for those that want that second cup of tea.
For anyone who’s into bread, bagels, English muffins, or Pop Tarts, a kitchen feels all-too-bare without a toaster. We recommend getting a versatile model with wide slots so you can cook thicker breads and bagels when it strikes your fancy.
5. Vegetable Chopper
A vegetable chopper is simply a device with a packaged compact unit which constitutes a large bowl, stainless steel blades and a powerful motor with one-touch power control. It performs various tasks such as chopping, mincing, slicing, grinding, and cubing of ingredients like vegetables, fruits, nuts, meat, and cheese.
