Terrific Toys for Your Kitchen-What You Really Need

The kitchen is the most important room in the home. It’s where friends gather, memories are made, and where holidays are spent with family. Keeping up with all of the newest and most-modern gadgets for the kitchen can be quite a task, but knowing which of them would be the most beneficial for your specific needs is even more difficult. Here is a short list of kitchen appliances and gadgets that make cooking easier for everyone.

The Blentec Blender

The Bendtec has been featured online and in stores, but its status as a worthy investment is unprecedented as a professional blender for in-home use. Each of the different models performs a variety of tasks; they can make hot soup from cold ingredients just by blending them on high-speed, grind harder ingredients and one model can even make ice cream and smoothies. Each blender comes in different colors to match kitchen decor.

Gaggenau CX 491 Full Surface Induction Cook-top

Modern technology has greatly improved the quality of cook-top stoves, but Gaggenau’s CX 491 has completely revolutionized even that. It is the first cook-top to utilize its entire surface area for cooking space. Using 48 micro-inductors the CX 491 evenly heats the surface of the cook-top, allowing space for multiple pots and pans to be used regardless of size. It is operated by a touch-screen, further enhancing its modernity and sleek appearance.

Morphy Richards Intellisteam Food Steamer

Steamed vegetables have become a food trend in the past decades thanks to research proving their high nutritional content. The Morphy Richards Intellisteam Food Steamer makes steaming vegetables – and other foods – a breeze. The Intellisteam utilizes three to four smaller compartments in which different foods can be placed. Its “intelligent timer” and three separate heaters ensure that each of the food items are perfectly steamed and ready to eat at the same time. If you hate washing all of those compartments, the Intellisteam can be disassembled and is dishwasher safe.

Zip HydroTap

Zip Industries’ HydroTap is a multi-function faucet that provides both boiling and chilled filtered drinking water at the touch of a button. Rather than waiting for water to boil via stove or microwave or keeping a pitcher of drinking water in the refrigerator, the HydroTap conveniently provides both from the same faucet right on your counter. Most models have a child-safety lock for the boiling water option or can be outfitted with special, easier-to-use handles for those with disabilities.
