Best Kitchen Appliances
Do you have a new house? Or did you just finish remodeling your kitchen? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you might be wondering what the best basic kitchen appliances are.
First of all - not all everybody has the same needs, so the basic appliances for some might not be the ones for others. Having said that, here are some "must-have," kitchen appliances that most household kitchens will need.
This hub will also help you to choose a nice Christmas gift, or perhaps even a wedding gift for a newly wedded couple. When you consider the massive range of kitchen appliances available, this is a good place to start.
Cuisinart TOB-195 Exact Heat Toaster Oven Broiler, Stainless
For early risers, this is one of the most basic kitchen appliances. Toaster ovens are not just great for toasting bread; this can bake, broil, reheat and defrost food in no time. It has electronic touchpad controls, clock and oven timers, is very contemporary in design with a steel exterior and interior finish. It can toast 6 slices of bread, with its .6 cubic foot capacity.
You can seriously consider doing away with a conventional oven with one of these. Not only do they save energy by not heating up a large volume, they can replace a conventional oven in many cases.
Cuisinart are well known around the world and have a great reputation. As far as I am concerned, no kitchen is complete without a toaster oven, and this is an excellent choice.
Panasonic NN-H765WF Full-Size 1-3/5-Cubic-Foot 1250-Watt Microwave Oven, White
Whether for newly wedded couples or not, a good microwave oven is a fantastic time saver. This 1250 watt full sized microwave oven has a 1 3/5 cubic feet capacity, has a 15 inch turntable for even heating and a keep warm feature. From defrosting to reheating to cooking, this thing rocks.
Another premiere manufacturer, Panasonic have been making microwaves for a long time, and this - at the price is the best in its class.
Another item any kitchen should have, I highly recommend this model for fast, even heating - a great time saver.
Keurig B40 Elite Gourmet Single-Cup Home-Brewing System
This is really something that helps start your day. It can make gourmet coffee or tea right in your kitchen. This uses the patented K-cups, making cleaning and grinding easier. It has an automatic shut off for energy saving and safety.
This really makes real nice coffee, which is all you need to know I guess. I like the idea of brewing single cups instead of a great big pot. Not only is the coffee always fresh - you are not wasting energy and resources making something that gets thrown away.
Definitely a must have product - no kitchen is complete without a decent coffee maker. I know I am useless until after the second cup.
Cuisinart DLC-10S Pro Classic 7-Cup Food Processor
This Cuisinart Food processor, is something that you just have to have also. If you want to make anything like a meal for a special occasion, make sure that you have a good food processor on hand.
This Cuisinart 7 Cup food processor does about everything you could possibly want from a food processor. It has a pulse control, all parts are dishwasher safe. You could even just wipe the motor base with a kleenex.
For first time users, you might not appreciate exactly what this can do for you, but once you get acquainted with this you will absolutely love this! You will be a master baker in no time at all.
Haier HDC1804TW 4-Place-Setting Tabletop Dishwasher
Another fantastic time saver - t tabletop dishwasher can accommodate a small setting of four. Perfect for those starting a family. It has a stainless steel spray arm and tub that will not chip, crack or rust. It has a silverware and utensil basket for better organization.
This might be small but it packs a powerful punch - it has 3 automatic wash cycles--heavy, normal and gentle. Just a few touches of the electronic touch pad controls then add soap and you can sit back watch a movie.
This takes care of all your washing and drying needs, so you can concentrate on the family instead of working away in the kitchen. I would not want to do without my Haier.
