The Most Important Appliances For Your Kitchen

The Most Important Appliances For Your Kitchen

One of the most important parts of creating your kitchen is choosing the right appliances. Whether you want to create a professional chef-level kitchen or just a simple space where you can cook food to feed your family and friends, here are the topmost important appliances for your kitchen.

Refrigerator

Choosing a refrigerator can be a tricky task to do. The first step when deciding on the refrigerator is to choose what type you like the most. Do you like the free-standing one or are you considering buying a built-in refrigerator in order to create a seamless look for your kitchen cabinets? After choosing the type, you should consider the size and the structure based on your needs. You can choose between the bottom or top freezers, or simply choose a separate freezer and refrigerator.

Stove/ Oven

Other important appliances are the stove and oven. You can choose between a separate stove and oven or a free-standing range, which includes a stove and oven in one appliance. Choosing between these options heavily depends on your cooking style and needs. 

If you tend to cook a single meal on both cooktop and oven then choosing a free-standing one would be more logical and time-saving in the long run. But if you have back problems, or simply always dreamt about a wall built-in oven you should go for it and buy a separate oven and stove top.

Ventilation

Ventilation is something to look into. The main benefit of this appliance is the removal of odor, steam, and heat. You can choose between an island or wall-mounted hoods depending on what you want your kitchen to look like. But the main thing to pay close attention to is CFM which is the measure of the fan’s ability to move the air. For the best results, the recommended rate is 1 CFM for every 100 BTU’s of your stovetop. 

Microwave

Microwaves can be one of the most essential parts of your kitchen. The use of this appliance is vaster than it might seem. Generally, people use microwaves to heat up leftover food or quickly make popcorn for a movie night, but there are many recipes on the internet that suggest that you can make an entirely new meal in the microwave and spend little to no time actively cooking.

Additional helpful appliances

These are additional appliances that can make your life way more enjoyable and can drastically improve your cooking or reduce the cooking time: 

  • Blenders – If soups, smoothies, and sauces are common food items in your household, then blenders are a must-have. A good blender can make your food prep a lot easier.
  • Toasters and toaster-ovens – Many people love their sandwiches and bagels for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Toasters and toaster ovens are a great help for these kinds of people. It requires a minimal clean up and you can whip up your favorite food in minutes.
  • Coffee makers – Coffee is a tradition for some people, it can be a part of a routine or simply a source of boosted energy for others. Generally, people don’t have a lot of time to spare on the process of making coffee, and the greatest benefit of coffee makers is that you can put your coffee in the machine, go do your chores or errands, and in a couple of minutes, you can enjoy a freshly prepared cafe-level quality drink.
  • Stand mixers – Every baker knows how hard and tedious baking can get. Mixing ingredients, kneading dough, whipping the meringue are some of the most time-consuming tasks a baker can have but standing mixers can get any job done in a couple of minutes. 

Conclusion

To sum up everything that has been stated above, the most important appliances for your kitchen are ones that help you prepare and store your food safely and with a minimum amount of effort. You should start with the basic appliances like a refrigerator and a stove and add other non-essential appliances like blenders and toaster ovens.
