Each and every homeowner has his or her own ideas when it comes to designing and decorating. This is especially true when it comes to the kitchen. Some prefer wide open spaces and doorless cabinets. Others, however, prefer dark wood, enclosed kitchen spaces that are less inviting for social occasions, and more purpose-driven for cooking and other culinary needs.
Then there are those who prefer a modern kitchen design. Here you will often find splashes of color, sleek looks, functional use of space, natural textures, and so much more. They are fun and spunky, yet lustrous and welcoming. And, of course, they are often found to be bright and airy spaces.
Modern Kitchen Appliances
Modern kitchens are often centerpieces to a home – and where you will find friends gathering, kids doing homework or a craft, and delicious meals being prepared. But, in addition to the wonderful items that make up a modern kitchen, you must obviously have appliances that will stand out.
We’ve put together a list of 10 modern kitchen appliances for the modern home that you won’t want to miss out on.
1. Wine Cooler
This modern kitchen appliance offers wine enthusiasts a controlled environment dedicated to storing wine properly.
As it turns out, it may not be ideal to store white wine in the refrigerator and red wine at room temperature. The average refrigerator temperature is too cold, which causes the wine to taste dull. Likewise, the average room temperature is too warm, which causes the wine to taste overwhelmingly alcoholic.
There is a wide range of wine coolers available, offering unique features, functionality, and storage space.
2. Food Processor
Surely you have heard of a food processor, but perhaps you don’t know exactly what it is. Food processors have been around for years – and they keep getting better.
Now, electric, this modern food processor can turn something hard, such as a cashew, into something creamy and delectable, such as cashew butter. This is a must-have for every modern kitchen.
3. Knife Sharpener
Knives are not meant to be thrown away as they become dull – especially expensive knives.
Instead, when they begin becoming less effective in the kitchen, you will want to get yourself a modern knife sharpener. This is a simple device that can easily – and safely – sharpen the blades time and time again.
4. Drop Scale
Do you have a drawer full of measuring devices for your kitchen?
If your kitchen is like most, this drawer is hard to open and is missing a few measuring cups. It is time to ditch the various measuring tools you use in the kitchen and get yourself a drop scale.
A drop scale helps you measure just the right amount of ingredients. Modern drop scales feature mobile app integration, giving you access to a library of recipes.
5. Wireless Speakers
Music makes everything better, doesn’t it?
Music while cooking a delicious meal is wonderful. However, placing a cell phone docking station, computer, or small radio on your cabinet can be an eyesore and take away from the modern look.
Instead, purchase a Bluetooth speaker that will install underneath your cabinet and connect to your devices. It can play the music you choose to listen to while neatly and conveniently stored underneath your cupboard.
6. Knives that Last
How often have you spent money on a set of knives and quickly learned that you wasted your money? In order to be a successful cook, you need good knives. Modern sets of knives today are being designed from high carbon steel, which is a combination of stainless steel and carbon steel.
These types of knives are non-negotiable. They stay sharp and strong and never rust. They make cooking much easier.
7. Air Fryer
Imagine being able to eat fried foods without all the bad reasons why you should avoid it. It is possible.
Don’t believe us?
An air fryer is what you need. This device allows you to cook with as little oil as possible.
The air fryer can cook your foods, such as chicken, giving it the taste of fried chicken without all the bad stuff. It works by spreading hot air around and around in a convection oven-type method. This fan moves the hot air around it so rapidly that it forms a crispy layer, which is what leaves it with a fried texture.
This modern appliance is a must-have for some healthy eating in your kitchen.
8. Food Mill
Do you love tomatoes but hate the juicy seeds inside? Do you often find yourself making your own soups or purees?
If so, a food mill is something you need. This device is a hand-cranked item that allows you to remove those pesky seeds (from tomatoes and other produce, including those with pits) and easily puree your sauces.
9. Smart Smoke Detector
How many times have you set off the smoke detector while cooking?
It is a common occurrence – more for some than others. A smart smoke detector is a device that can tell the difference between steam, smoke, and fire. Too often, the sound of a smoke detector in the kitchen goes off due to steam. Reduce this annoying situation with his modern house must-have.
10. Ice Maker
This modern kitchen appliance is great for households and businesses that go through a lot of ice.
Ice makers are capable of producing and storing a large amount of ice than your standard refrigerator, so you’ll never have to worry about running out of ice again. In addition to the functionality, some ice makers feature the popular stainless steel finish, so it will blend in nicely with any modern kitchen design.
