In any household having the right appliances is a must. After all who’d heat up your food or cool the beer cans or get you perfectly grilled sandwiches early morning? Both small and large appliances play an important role in day to day functioning of a household but not every appliance you hear about is necessary. Here are KitchenGuyd’s 5 most important appliances every kitchen needs.
1. Stoves and Ovens
You’ve got to cook daily and thus a stove is simply indispensable. There are plenty of options when purchasing stoves. You can opt for induction, gas or electric stoves. For newbies, an electric stove is ideal as it heats up slowly whereas for professionals induction’s the best choice as it heats up quickly and allows greater temperature control.
If you’re into baking then you can opt for either a convection or conventional oven depending on your experience level but it’s not a must to have an oven.
Like a stovetop, a refrigerator is an absolute must too. You can opt for either a single door or double door refrigerator depending on the family size. Larger units can preserve more food for a longer duration.
High-end models come with additional features and functionality like quick ice dispenser. They are also energy efficient, built using durable materials like stainless steel and designed to stand out.
For those with lots of wine at home can opt for a separate wine cellar to keep it cool, aromatic and flavorsome.
Washing leftover dishes and utensils can be a real chore especially after a house party but with a dishwasher, you’ll save tons of time and effort best utilized on other tasks at hand. The budget models tend to be noisier and offer fewer controls.
On the other hand, the high-end models come with additional features, save power and water and are noiseless. Also, these dishwashers can clean more dishes and thus ideal for larger families.
By ventilation, we are referring to a chimney and yes it is an important part of every kitchen especially if you’ve got tiled walls or granite in the kitchen as it protects them from the sticky fumes and smoke and also keeps the roof from turning black.
You can opt for either an electric or modular chimney and while both perform equally well if you cook with spices more often than not, a modular chimney is our suggestion.
5. Electric Griddle
An electric griddle will come in handy than you’d think especially if you love your breakfast sandwiches or your steak and burgers grilled to perfection. Also, an electric griddle is compact and thus can be stored even in small drawers etc. when not in use.
Its compact design also makes it easy to move around. The top models are also energy efficient and can be used to make even waffles etc.
