A short time ago I got married and had and had moved to my new house with my better half.
Being a foodie shopaholic I always curious about new kitchen stuff like recipes, tools, and appliances.
In the most recent year, I had obtained 5-6 kitchen appliances and still, I’m not done.
I am addicted to this stuff most of the time I spend searching for new kitchen appliance on the internet, magazines, etc. and found 1 interesting site named kitchen ultimate which offers appliance reviews and discount to buy cookware and appliances online.
See the thing is due to work and office, it’s hard to get free time and I always try to save my time for friends and family.
With kitchen appliances, you not only save the time but also they are responsible for any specific task which otherwise you have to do manually.
For example, making yogurt. Instead of heating manually and stand in the kitchen just get help from yogurt maker.
Also the cool fact about kitchen appliances that they are really affordable and compact.
In this article, I walk through you and introduce some of the kitchen appliances I have in my kitchen.

3. Breville Toaster Oven – 13 inch – 6 slices
Do you ever hear of any kitchen appliance who can handle toast, roast, bake, warm, reheat, slow cooking all by itself?
Well, this extraordinary kitchen appliance does all the basic tasks you perform daily in the kitchen.
The unique thing about this that it also works as a slow cooker. So you just drop food in it and leave for forever.
It comes with 10 amazing presets function-
- Slow cooking
This stainless countertop toaster oven is a good choice for people who don’t want to waste much space in the kitchen.
Buying separate machines for all tasks is a bad idea unless you don’t have any option.
How does it work?
- Open lid place food in the trays.
- Adjust function, timer, and temperature knobs.
- Press Start.
Note: This oven has an interior light, indicates cooking status.
Note: Read manual thoroughly to savvy about cautions, heating temperature and lot more.
4. Oster Roaster oven – 22 Qt
Before having this kitchen appliance, I roasted turkey/beef in the microwave.
Since my family is relatively big, and because of having a small size microwave I have to buy a small turkey and cook twice which doubles the electric bill.
Hopefully, I then found this bigger size roaster which has a capacity to cook up to 26 lbs of turkey at a time.
Also having self-basting lid eliminates the need for hand basting which makes your turkey nicely tendered.
How to roast?
- Place the removable roasting pan into the ROASTER
- Place the lid on the roaster.
- Before plug, the cord confirms if the temperature knob is set to a minimum.
- Preheat the oven by turning the temperature knob for 15 minutes.
- The light will turn off once the oven becomes hot according to the desired temperature.
- Place roasting pan back in the oven insert food items and close the lid.
- When finished, turn the temp knob to minimum and unplug.
- Using oven mitts lift the roasting rack and serves.
Note: All recipes do not require cooking in a closed lid. You get information about this in the manual.
5. Victoria Tortilla Maker
I am always fond of Indian cuisines which include tortilla aka “chapati”.
I mean chapati consistently presents in my family meal.
It is nutritious and tastes excellent with any curry. For example chicken curry.
But by hands, it’s very irritating to flat single ball of flour balls.
Here this tortilla maker plays it’s role. Reduce 90% of cooking work.
Well, apart from chapati you can also make quesadillas, empanadas, pitas, tacos, flatbread, etc.
How to use?
It’s very simple just place small flour dough on the flat surfaces and press hard. Then cook on either induction or circular grill.
These above kitchen appliances deserve a try even if you are a busy couple living together. There is not a bit chance of disappointment. You will realize how your stressful cooking now becomes easy and relaxing with these.
However, you could also give a shot about these other kitchen appliances like:
