An Overview On Small Appliances

Whether you live in an apartment with restrictions or perhaps just can’t afford certain full-sized appliances, you will find great value in adding a small appliance to your kitchen. From hand mixers in place of stand mixers and countertop grills in place of a patio grill, all those small appliances can make life in the kitchen much tastier. The top small appliances will also make healthy eating an easy and achievable task.

There are a wide variety of small appliances to choose from. There are blenders and mixers, toaster ovens and microwaves, and fryers and slow cookers to make your food prep super simple. Indoor electric grills are quite a popular small appliance. They can give you those summertime cookout foods without a full-sized grill. The Hamilton Beach Electric Indoor Grill is perfect for steak night or burgers or even fresh veggies on the grill. If you love paninis and want to make them at home, the George Foreman Removable Plate Grill and Panini Press will do the trick. If you want the versatility to do both, choose the Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler. If you love pizza nights at home, the Presto Pizzazz Plus Rotating Oven makes it fun to watch your pizza bake right on the countertop.

Small appliances are typically easy to store, as well. Being made for small spaces, it makes sense that they would be well-organized units or break down into smaller parts. In addition, their parts are usually detachable for easy cleaning. Some even have dishwasher-safe parts that make cleanup even easier. An added bonus to these small appliances is their energy-saving electric usage. Most of them use less electricity than full-size ovens or stoves so you can feel good when plugging these small appliances in at home.

DWYM Fun Fact

The George Foreman Grill was the first popular indoor electric grill. It was invented by Michael W. Boehm of Indiana. He made a prototype at home and when it worked, he began the patent process on it. It is rumored that Boehm asked George Foreman himself to endorse the “Lean Mean Fat Melting Grilling Machine.” The George Foreman Grill was released on the market in 1994; as of 2017, George Foreman had received roughly $200 million for his endorsement.

The Small Appliance Buying Guide

  • If you want to use your small appliance for more than one purpose, find one that has multiple attachments.
  • Make sure the parts are dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup.
  • Look for individual heat settings so you can control the temperature for different foods.
