Kitchen gadgets come in all shapes and sizes, from novelty items, to highly complex machinery; often you may find yourself overwhelmed by choice.

When buying items for your home, it is essential that they will last and that is why we’ve done a countdown of the top five kitchen gadgets that you will be able to keep for life.


Five. Washing Machine

It may sound obvious, but a washing machine is a staple for every kitchen.

The difference between a good washing machine and great one is evident in the speed, efficiency and accuracy of the wash.  Look out for A rated washing machines, as these are the most energy efficient on the market.

There are plenty of cost-efficient modern washers at Co-operative Electrical, which will last you a lifetime, and ensure your clothes to be clean and fresh in a matter of minutes.


Four. Knife Sharpener

Anyone who enjoys home cooking will tell you that sharp knives are an essential part of the process. However, if you use your kitchen knives frequently, then you may be aware of just how quickly they begin to blunt.

Rather than forking out on new knives every few months, invest in some good knives and an even better knife sharpener. This handy gadget will have your knives sharpened in seconds, whilst removing the safety risk that comes with trying to sharpen them yourself.


Three.  Milk Frother

A milk frother is an essential gadget for smoothie, cocktail and coffee lovers, and one that can really last you a lifetime.

The biggest complaint about coffee machines is the quality of the milk froth, but this problem has been solved with the advent of the milk frother.

For as little as £15 you can have a real coffee-shop experience in the comfort of your own home. Simply heat the milk in a microwave and use the pump for a full, long lasting froth.


Two. Cocktail Kit

If you love to entertain guests, then it is important that you get yourself a cocktail making kit.

There are plenty of gadgets available to help make your drinks top quality and keep you and your guests happy. Investing in a Zinger for example, will add flavour to your favourite spirits, while a cocktail mixer will speed up the overall drink making process.


One. Indoor Electric Grill

This is by far the best kitchen gadget for quick preparation of food as well as reducing fat.

The non-stick variety will ensure that the grill is easy to clean, whilst the drip tray allows you to see just how much saturated fat is being drained. The electric grill is not only super-efficient, but a much healthier option too.

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home, so keep yours healthy by investing in these five gadgets. You won’t regret it.

    I loved your recommendations, and I would also like to add the Rice Cooker (if you like all kind of rice). It allows you to make a dish in no time…
