It has long been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. You’ll no doubt spend a lot of time here preparing food, socializing with family and friends, and let’s not forget your impromptu kitchen dance parties. Moving into a new home is an opportunity to upgrade your kitchenware — so why not go shopping for the coolest, must-have kitchen appliances of 2019 to fit the new kitchen design? Here are some of the items you’re going to love.
Today’s refrigerators have gotten more efficient, better organized, and smarter. Manage the refrigerator’s temperature in both the fridge and freezer, as well as the humidity levels, from a touch screen or wirelessly from your phone. You’ll never have to suffer a drawer full of frost-bitten carrots again.
With a quality high-powered motor, a good blender can tackle anything from making delicious smoothies to blending ice into cocktails or even grinding nut butters or grains. Some blenders offer a “wet” jar and a “dry” jar with different blades for each purpose, while some utilize the same blender for everything. Whatever you’re blending, this is definitely one of the must-have kitchen appliances for modern lifestyles.
Move over crockpot, the multi-cooker is the newest kitchen appliance on the scene. This all-in-one device can steam or slow cook and can usually be synced to your phone: now you’re in control of your dinner, no matter where in the house or yard you may be.
Microwaves, ovens, even beverage refrigerators are getting tucked under kitchen islands and countertops, giving the kitchen more space and a clean look. This means those appliances are utilizing the drawer approach instead of the usual swinging door, making them even easier to keep sleek and out of the way.
Modern dishwashers are way more effective than your old one. No more pre-washing your dishes or hand washing the pots and pans: the best dishwashers of 2019 are highly effective, remarkably quiet, and have “sensor” cycles that determine how best to wash whatever you load into the washer.
Whether you drink endless cups of coffee every day or just like to enjoy your one ritual cup, there’s nothing quite like waking up in the morning to the smell of already-made coffee. Thanks to your programmable coffee maker, that can be the case. Tell your machine how many cups to make, how strong, and at what time, and then revel in the magic of having your cuppa without setting a slippered foot outside the house.
Convection-powered toaster oven
Sometimes you want to heat up a slice of pizza but don’t want to preheat the entire oven. Enter: the convection toaster oven. It can still make a quality piece of toast or crisp up your waffles, but it can also bake cookies, pizzas, and cakes. Plus, it provides some extra cooking space when you’re making big meals!
