Cooking is a fun activity for many and for those that love nothing more than whipping up a delicious meal for their loved ones, there are some kitchen gadgets that are an absolute must-have.
In fact, cooking can become a much more enjoyable experience, even for those that don’t particularly enjoy it, with the help of the right kitchen appliances. There are some obvious places to start, such as with a quality knife set and a ceramic hob.
However that being said, there are only so many appliances that the average kitchen can contain without being too cluttered. So, it’s important to choose the essential ones that make the biggest impact.
If you’re designing your kitchen from scratch, you can ask for your interior design experts to incorporate all of your desired kitchen appliances.
Saturn Interiors have selected five must-have gadgets that will help with the majority of cooking tasks, therefore making your life easier – and your food even more tasty!
1: Slow Cookers
Slow cookers have been making a huge comeback and for a good reason. These are fantastic bits of kit that help in preparing slow-cooked dishes, such as stews, chilli and even pork leg. They can transform fairly simple dishes into ones that have mouth-watering flavours.
The automatic, stand-alone containers can be programmed to turn on and off as per your requirements, so if you want to cook up a storm whilst you’re at work, that’s very much a possibility with one of these in your kitchen.
So, whichever type you decide to go with, you definitely won’t regret making a small investment with this handy kitchen appliance.
2: Hand Blenders
With this nifty hand-held tool, you can whip up your own pesto, dressings and mayo effortlessly. It also helps you in wondrous ways while beating, emulsifying, pureeing and whipping ingredients together. The best part about this gadget is that it is small and portable, which also helps to save space in your kitchen.
You’ll also be glad to hear that most hand blenders are a lot quieter than the standard ones you find in most kitchens – so if you’re a cooking or baking pro, your neighbours will be very happy with this little investment.
3. A Good Quality Coffee Maker
Having a coffee maker is a must-have for the coffee-lovers of the world and whilst it’s not needed for cooking, these beauties are usually housed in the kitchen which is why they have found their way to this blog.
Even if you are not a coffee drinker, you might have family and friends who might be. Being able to play the perfect host to your loved ones when they are coming over to stay with you is always a great feeling and a coffee maker will allow you to do just that.
When designing your perfect kitchen, you can work with kitchen specialists to include a compact coffee maker into the design. With the compact coffee makers from Saturn Interiors, you can use coffee beans or pre-ground coffee, meaning it’s a truly flexible option for both yourself and your guests.
4. A Pancake Maker
Pancakes aren’t just for pancake day – and if you’re the type of person that absolutely loves devouring a stack of pancakes then why not invest in something that can ensure your once-a-year tradition becomes a lot more regular moving forward?
Some models even allow you to prepare pancakes, crepes, omelettes and blinis in mere minutes. If you want to impress your morning guests, get yourself a pancake maker and breakfasts away from the house will be a thing of the past.
No two kitchens are the same and what some people see as a must-have in their own home will be something that is stored under the stairs untouched for someone else. The team at Saturn Interiors understand that everyone has their own individual needs and requirements when it comes to designing their kitchen.
We offer a free design and plan consultation that includes a home visit to measure the space available, your vision and any particular requirements you might have for your kitchen. With just a free 30-45 minute appointment, you can be one step closer to getting the kitchen of your dreams.
