Whether you’re a master chef or the type that manages to burn water, we all should be able to prepare a simple meal. Thankfully, these handy appliances will not only make cooking easier for any skill level, but will also add value to your kitchen. If you’re looking to make cooking more convenient, or just looking to upgrade your kitchen, read on.

Induction Compatible Cookware

An induction cooktop is one of the best improvements you can make to a kitchen. The element itself doesn’t heat up (hello increased safety), they’re energy efficient, and they’re just as effective as any other cooktop. The downside is that you need to own a certain type of cookware in order to be able to use them. A great way to test whether your current cookware will work with your new stove is to grab a fridge magnet and see if it sticks to the base. If so, you’re good to go, but if you’re finding your supply low after completing this test, you’ve just gotten yourself a great excuse to go buy some shiny, new, induction compatible cookware.

A Bullet Blender

The great thing about bullet blenders is that even though they’re super compact, they’re actually generally more effective than your traditional blender. Not only can you whip up a delicious smoothie in next to no time, but many bullet blenders are also capable of chopping, mincing and dicing fruit and veg, grinding coffee, and making soup among many other great functions. Additionally, since bullet blenders are so functional and easy to use, you may even find yourself creating a whole new range of culinary masterpieces.

A Proper Coffee Machine

If you’re one of those people who just can’t face the world without your morning ritual, you owe it to yourself to have your own machine. Yes, coffee machines can be expensive, but if you add up the amount you spend on morning takeaway coffees over the course of a week, then a month, then a year – you’ll soon see it as an investment. Be in control of your own brews and make it just the way you like it, every time.

A Benchtop Oven

These little beauties are more efficient than their full-size counterparts, throw out less heat (a lifesaver in Summer), and can even cook some foods faster. Yes, bench space is a premium commodity, but if you can spare enough room for even a small convection oven, the possibilities are endless. Don’t think of it as losing part of your bench, think of it as investing in your ability to multitask. If you’ve ever wanted to cook two things at once that bake at different temperatures, you’ll be worshipping your new addition in no time. Plus, you just freed up all that room by switching to a bullet blender so technically you’re still winning the space war.

A Portable Grill

Much like your new benchtop oven, a portable grill is going to save you time, effort and bills.
They’re more efficient than a full-size grill, won’t force you to turn the entire oven on to make a cheese sandwich, and most of them are great for reducing the fat levels of your food if you’re into that.

So there you have it, five super convenient appliances that will make your life far easier.
Cooking doesn’t have to be a bore and with these gadgets on your side, you might even start enjoying it.
