The kitchen is more than a room to meet your needs; it is often the room that delivers the wow factor to any visitors. Whether you’re planning a dinner party or inviting a friend over for coffee, you’re likely to want a modern kitchen packed with cutting edge appliances to ensure that it is the envy of the neighborhood. So, here we’ll explore some of the appliances and features you need to include in your kitchen.

Commercial Inspired Range

These days, you don’t need to visit a restaurant supply store to get a commercial style range. Many manufacturers now offer ranges that are made in a commercial style to add functionality and flair to domestic kitchens. This is likely to be a result of cooking shows, but a commercial inspired range tends to be more powerful and can look great in any kitchen. They offer greater oven space, more burners and even additional features such as built-in griddles. There is usually a choice of fuel sources, but if you want the ultimate in cooking performance, consider induction.

Immersion Blender

You don’t need to waste space or time with a bulky blender. Immersion blenders take up very little space in a kitchen drawer, yet are easier to use with faster clean up. While you may still rely on your traditional blender for making smoothies, an immersion blender can be useful for soups, sauces and many other culinary delights. Just be sure that you unplug your immersion blender before you dismantle it for cleaning.

Refrigerator With Adjustable Shelves

Modern refrigerators are equipped with some fantastic features, but one limitation is fixed shelves. Fixed shelves can make it difficult to get the best use out of your refrigerator, as you may find that you have wasted space in some areas and little available space in others. Instead of trying to adjust to these limitations, opt for a model with removable shelves that can be adjusted to fit your specific needs and changing circumstances.

An All in One Coffee Maker

These days, a coffee maker can do more than make a basic black. If you choose one that can perform different functions, you can save time in your kitchen and enjoy a coffee house style cup. Ideally, your new coffee maker should be able to filter water and have manual control, but you can also buy models that grind coffee beans. An all in one coffee maker can not only look great on your countertop, but can ensure that you don’t need to meet friends at your local coffee house, as you can prepare fantastic coffee at home.

Kitchen Companion

Smart speakers provide a fantastic kitchen companion. These voice activated devices feature a sensitive microphone that responds to a wake word and can take commands. An excellent example of this is Google Home Mini or the larger Google Home system that emits a human like voice to respond to your requests. So, whether you want to listen to your favorite cooking songs, confirm a recipe or convert measurements, your kitchen companion is ready to help. Some devices can also be configured to adjust other smart devices in your home such as thermostats and lights. There are almost no limitations for the uses of a kitchen companion; whether you want to ask how many calories are in that brownie before you eat it, want to set an oven timer or plan to learn a language while you make dinner, you can rely on your new smart device.
