Settling into a new home is exciting. Your new kitchen, however, can frustrate you if you do not have the right appliances to make it functional, especially if you are a first-time homeowner. There are hundreds of cookware, tools and kitchen appliances in the market, so it can be very daunting choosing the right ones. Here are some of the kitchen appliances you must have in your new home!
Food baked in an oven is a much healthier option than deep-fried dishes, and you can literally bake almost all types of vegetables and protein in an oven. You have the choice of a countertop oven or go a step further and get a built-in oven in your new home.
The air-fryer works just like a convection oven, but with a much better circulation of air. An air-fryer is an amazing appliance that needs little or no oil and you can cook a variety of foods, from cakes to vegetables and meat. A meal cooked using an air-fryer cooks fast, is super easy to use and takes up little space.
In comparison to a stovetop, a rice cooker cooks much easily as it has settings and water lines, depending on your rice quantity. There are newer varieties of rice cookers that also cook stews, porridge and yogurt. You never have to worry about burning rice again!
A fridge enables you to keep ingredients that will otherwise spoil without refrigeration and extends the shelf life of all your foodstuff. A fridge also makes an excellent companion in your new home when you need to have ice-cold drinks during the hot summer season.
A slow cooker is a hands-off kind of appliance. You just throw in all ingredients and let them cook. You don’t have to stir the food until it is ready. You can turn the slow cooker on, go to work and come home to a hot, well-cooked meal!
A pressure cooker cooks using intense pressure and is perfect if you must cook food fast. A pressure cooker can cook in less than 20 minutes and there are many safety guards in most modern pressure cookers, making them safer than they were before.
A juicer is great for vegetable and fruit juices. Find one that fits your budget and you can reap the benefits of home-made juices, while saving money on buying juices, especially if you have young children.
A food processor makes food preparation much easier and faster. It is safer to use than a knife for chopping foodstuff, and you can teach a child how to use it.
An electric kettle is a must-have for boiling water safely, and fast. Most have insulation and safe to touch, while others have temperature presets which allow you to choose your preferred water temperature.
A microwave is a great appliance that is a must-have for your new home. It allows you to heat food, defrost frozen foodstuff if you don’t have time to let it thaw out. If you know how to use it properly, it can even make simple meals such as scrambled eggs.
