The kitchen appliances you need in your life

Some appliances are handier than others. Find out which ones you need in your kitchen!

Every now and then you come across a new way of doing things that makes you think – how did I ever get by without this?

When it comes to the kitchen, many of us still stick to traditional ways of cooking passed down through the generations. Sure, we’re all for the tried and tested – but we also crave convenience and speed.

Here are some handy appliances your kitchen can’t do without:

Digital pressure cooker

You might be reluctant to give up precious kitchen counter space, but a digital pressure cooker is multi-faceted and handier than it looks. Not only does it fast-track cooking time, it also bakes, sautés and more! Start dreaming of delicious risottos, stews, ribs, curries and soups made in a jiffy.

Food processor

Are you still wasting time and tears chopping up onions? Still fumbling about with garlic cloves trying to get them finely chopped? Well, here comes the food processor to save the day. Chop, slice or puree your ingredients with the press of a button. Enjoy guacamole, salsas, and dips in a matter of minutes.

Electric mixer

Mixing cake and cookie batter might be good for your biceps but save the workout for the gym and invest in an electric mixer instead. If you’re an avid baker, you’ll want to go for a stand mixer – but if you’re more of an occasional, Betty Crocker-type baker then a hand mixer will probably do.


Blenders used to be bulky and difficult to clean – but new, compact designs in recent years mean they’re easier and more convenient to use. Some even come with attachments that create a portable bottle for drinking smoothies or juices. Blend your way to a healthier you!
