The summer season is in full swing, the kids have finished school and families may be using the kitchen more. Investing in new kitchen accessories and appliances can be a great way to get the whole family involved this summer.
To help get your kitchen ready for the busy period ahead, we have provided a list of the top 5 kitchen accessories that are perfect for the family.
Juicer or Blender
Smoothies and fruit juices go hand-in-hand with summer. Not only are these drinks very refreshing and healthy, but they can also be simple and easy to make with the right blender or juicer. Finding a suitable blender for your kitchen shouldn’t be an issue as there is a wide range of compact and simple-to-use models available for all types of kitchens.
If you don’t already have a blender, it may be worth investing in one. It’s a fun way to get creative with the kids, and it allows them to blend their own fruit recipes.
Smart Coffee Maker
Whilst coffee makers may be commonplace in homes, smart coffee machines are something that many kitchens can also benefit from. Smart kitchen appliances are becoming increasingly popular due to the wide variety of benefits they provide over traditional kitchen appliances.
Smart coffee machines in particular offer a new and convenient way of making coffee. These coffee makers can connect to your home network and communicate via a mobile app. This gives you the ability to make a coffee remotely, at the touch of a button. If you have guests around, your smart coffee machine can even take multiple orders, and prepare the coffee one after the other! What’s not to love?
Cast Iron Griddle
Enjoying healthy and tasty food at home has never been easier with a cast iron griddle. You’ll get all the benefits of a barbeque without the risks of burning the food. A griddle offers a larger surface area for you to cook on and you can prepare a variety of foods without any fat, such as meat and vegetables.
Not only is a griddle very easy to clean and maintain, but it also provides a few advantages over traditional stovetops. Unlike traditional range burners, a griddle spreads the heat evenly throughout the surface, meaning you can cook more food at the same time.
Ice Cream Maker
Ice cream perfectly complements the hot weather during summer. Use an ice cream maker, to control exactly what goes into your desserts, and enjoy the wonderful taste of homemade ice cream. Most ice cream makers are very easy to use, and you can make a delicious dairy treat in under thirty minutes.
There is a wide range of dessert makers available which means that you can easily find affordable products, all the way to the more luxurious ice cream makers. Whilst many of these products do come with recipe books, there is also an abundance of high-quality recipes online which enables you to get creative with the flavours.
After a long day in the sun, you just want to eat something fresh and light. Salads are a popular summer meal and they can be easily prepared with a salad spinner. This is a kitchen utensil that uses a plastic bowl, colander, and a lid with a spinning mechanism. This spinner helps to remove excess water from your food after washing, without damaging the leaves.
There are also other uses for a salad spinner, such as washing small fruits and berries, drying herbs, and even washing some vegetables. It’s a multi-purpose tool that can help make processes easier in the kitchen.
