Small gadgets to improve your kitchenCooking, Decorations August 27, 2014 - 10:39 am No Comment
As a place where we spend more waking hours than anywhere else in the house, kitchens need a little bit more TLC. Unlike those of yesteryear, todays modern sculleries have evolved into more than just a food preparation area. According to a study by research experts, Magnet, the kitchen is now a place where we dine, study and socialise.
As a result of this evolution, the area has ballooned from an average of 5.9m² to a whopping 11.2m². It now includes gadgets such as flat screen TVs, radios, toasters and dish washers to make it as homely as possible. Investing in exceptional furniture and gadgets can make your kitchen more exciting to spend time in.
To help you renovate the area, here are some top rated gadgets and furniture you need in there.
The four minute doughnut
They’re the ultimate comfort food snack, and it can often be a pain if you just fancy indulging, but don’t have anything in the cupboards. Even if you had the energy to go off to a local shop and stock up, you’d probably have a selection of stale and unappetising donuts waiting for you. What could be better than having the ability to cook up a batch of treats from the comfort of your kitchen?
The Babycakes Doughnut Maker allows anyone, even kids, to bake six pastries in four minutes. It doesn’t need cooking oil and doesn’t fry the doughnuts, making it a healthier and affordable alternative for people who have a sweet tooth.
Dispensing all-round goodness
Sometimes, through the summer especially, there’s nothing better than an ice cold glass of water. In the winter, if your morning routine strictly consists of commencing the day with a hot cup of coffee, the BIBO table top water dispenser may be just what you need. It’s an all-in-one unit that relieves the need for appliances such as your kettle, coffee machine and water cooler; saving you space, while also providing clean filtered water. What’s more, the BIBO uses very little energy and can be programmed to automatically switch off whenever you’re not using it, saving money on your utility bill.
No one likes to work in a cluttered kitchen where the worktop looks like a storm came along with friends and had a party. We’re often looking for ways to save space, but getting rid of essentials such as weighing scales and chopping boards can be a real hindrance when it comes to cooking.
However, saving space is easy to manage with the Salter Scale. Designed to serve as a clock, thermometer and scale, the device allows you to save space by getting rid of all three appliances in your home. When you’re not using it, you can just hang the stylish, high-tech disk on the wall.
As humans, our senses are limited and can’t detect when something’s off until we come to prepare it for a meal. This often leads to disasters of stomach-turning proportions. Even more so when it comes to inspecting an egg’s freshness. It’s difficult to tell if an egg has gone bad just by looking at the shell. But as soon as we crack it open, our kitchens transform from a heavenly space into a rancid, sewer system in no time.
The Egg Minder spares your senses from the horror. It’s basically an advanced egg tray that tells you how many eggs you have and their current state of freshness. The appliance communicates with your smartphone and provides push messages when everything is about to get sour, or your supply is running low.
