The modern kitchen isn’t just about units and worktops – it’s about the gadgets and equipment that we use every day. So, let’s take a look at some of today’s top gadgets.
For the Butcher
If mighty meat is your thing, you may want to think about investing in some of these useful gadgets to put your cooking a cut above the rest.
Purifying Knife Holder System
Get equipment perfectly clean with a Purifying Knife Holder System. Knife holders, like the models sold at Pure Living, use ultraviolet-C light to eliminate 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria.
Everyone loves a burger, especially if it’s homemade. For the perfect patties every time, a burger press is an excellent kitchen tool. The range at weberbbq is great, there Weber Burger Press is compact and light with a circular plastic tight-fitting lid, making it easy to use and simple to clean.
Non-stick American Press
For fast, super juicy steaks take a tip from top chefs and use a cast-iron grill press. Models like the non-stick American press from Lodge can be used in prep to flatten meat or during cooking to cook steaks on both sides at the same time.
For the Great British Baker
The clever thermospatula is not only the ideal stirring implement, it can also tell you the temperature whilst you mix. Meaning no more balancing a thermometer in the bowl! Ideal for tempering chocolate or making the perfect jam.
Hand mixers are brilliant for cutting down on stirring time, and can be stored neatly away after you’ve finished whipping up a sugary treat. We love the great range available at Kenwood, with features such as 350W motors, five speed functions, kneading and beating attachments, as well as soft-grip handles you can’t go wrong!
Fancy something a bit different, or just for fun? These kitchen creations add a little something extra to your cooking.
Ice Cream Maker
Even when the weather’s cold, I can often be tempted buy ice cream, especially if it’s served with some hot apple pie! You can make your own with an ice cream maker, like this model from Andrew James that comes with a with spare bowl – it even won a Which? ‘Best Buy’ award.
Nothing beats a movie and a big bowl of popcorn from your very own popcorn machine. Investing in your own machine means you can have all the flavours you love, freshly popped and healthy too. Pop corn makers are now available in most major department stores.. Why not put one on your Christmas list?
