With lifestyles more relaxed these days and so much cooking taking place at home we thought a roundup of countertop appliances you will be using on repeat would be great. I don’t know about you but what I’ve been hearing lately is people are getting bored with their same old repertoire. Why not change things up with a new ‘toy’ or appliance for your kitchen?
Here are our top picks. We’ve provided a quick link below each item to make it easy to order.
Juicing anyone? The popular diet trend can be made easier with this large batch cold juicer. The large feed tube accepts whole fruits while maintaining a small footprint. Choose a colour that complements your kitchen.
Keep it simple! This spiralizer has four blades and offers freshly spiralized vegetables. Zucchini are my favourite!
Are you new to the sous vide cooking trend? I do not have one yet but have been reading the reviews and here are a couple I have my eye on. This first one is from Breville. While I do not know them to be a leading name in sous vide reviews, we have had such good luck with Breville small appliances I think this one is worth considering. It had solid reviews on the store’s website so that’s enough for me.
If you are looking for one of the leading names in Sous Vide cooking, you might want to consider this Anova. From their description “Sous vide is taking off with home chefs as a whole new way to cook – and the newly updated Anova Precision Cooker makes it faster and easier than ever. Designed to work with any pot in the kitchen, the cooker heats and circulates water, cooking food evenly to a precise internal temperature for restaurant-quality results every time. Use the Anova app to control cooking from your mobile device and access more than 4000 recipes and guides.”
Next up is the instant pot. In my grandmother’s day a pressure cooker was used to save time but since my grandmother scalded herself with the steam from hers on several occasions I always thought those were rather dangerous and never wanted to use one. Fast forward a few decades and we have the answer, the instant pot. This one on sale is a great deal right now.
Next up, what’s not to love about having crisp “fried” calamari or French fries without the guilt? Enter, the air fryer from the same people who brought you the instapot.
Are you one of those people we shouldn’t talk to until you’ve had your morning coffee? If you don’t have a great coffee/espresso/cappuccino maker at home, this is a great one. We have an earlier version of this and I can tell you, we have been very happy with it.
This last option is not exactly an appliance, but I’ve wanted one for so long, and it’s on sale – which almost never happens so I am including it here with a link. This Le Creuset Dutch Oven comes in so many colours there is sure to be one to add the perfect pop of colour to your stovetop. You’re welcome :).
