Technology is all over and used in almost every process today and this includes everything that happens in your home. From the vacuum cleaner to your air conditioner and geyser everything is done through technology and therefore there is no surprise that modern technology has impacted the kitchen and all its tasks to a great extent. Here are some of the gadgets that you should think about installing in your kitchen because they will simplify your food preparation and more importantly help you enjoy quality food and drinks from the comfort of your home.
Toasters and Sandwich or Panini Presses
That essential morning meal and quick snack that is sometimes even a lunch or quick dinner is toast and sandwiches. In the recent years, Panini’s have also become quickly popular. Most of us tend to buy all these from the bakery nearby because it is a process to assemble them at home and still get that shop quality. But a toaster can help you get your breakfast on in just minutes. Remember to buy one that is energy efficient and has a double slot. It should also have a centring mechanism that will make sure that the bread is toasted evenly and if there is a removable tray it will just make it that much easier to clean up. Because different bread types come in different widths, the slots should be wide enough to accommodate any type. Then sandwich or Panini press can be used for the obvious as the name suggests but also for frying eggs, cooking omelettes and even making pancakes and fluffy waffles. You will have to buy one that is of the right size and height so that you do not feel like it is too cumbersome to use.
Cold Storage for Alcohol
Who doesn’t like to have a nice dill drink at home while watching their favourite program on TV, a movie or a good game right? Having a wine cooler in your pantry can really help you store your favourite drinks in advance and enjoy a cool and perfectly stored glass at whatever time you choose. Storing alcohol at the right temperature is essential if you want to preserve the original taste of it and not harm the body of the drink. Browse through the different varieties that are available today and choose one that is the right size and right price for you.
The Rice Cooker
It can be a bit tricky to get that perfect fluffy rice if you are simply going to cook it on the stove and that is where a rice cooker can come in handy. But apart from rice, it can also be used for things like steaming, cooking quinoa and even making pasta. So it is pretty much multi-purpose in the kitchen. Rice cookers come in different capacities and you should choose one that will accommodate enough to cook for everybody in the house. A rice cooker is usually supposed to last you over a decade so buy one if good quality with a warranty.
