Is your loved one on an unusual schedule and leaving home way too early and skipping breakfast?  No way!!!  A tall glass of smoothie or a fruit juice is the ultimate solution to calm your worrying mind.  Loaded with all nutrients and minerals, it is a sure way to keep the tummy full.

Specialty blender is my personal favorite as they pulverize raw vegetables, fruits and greens and prepare a satisfying drink that is wholesome and appealing; not to mention that it can be made in a jiffy.

"They look at the greens, but steal the bacon," quotes a famous Latin proverb.  These machines make it easy to consume them without much drama.

Having guests over for dinner shortly and your house is in a smoky mess!!!

Baffle filter range hood is an exceptionally good choice for every kitchen.  I can’t stop myself from mentioning that baffle filters are the ones that make this range hood really stand out from the rest of the others.  The filters have a unique system of collecting the grease away from the air vents, so that the air flow system is free of clogging for up to three months.

Once you have installed this range hood, you can enjoy a peaceful aroma filled dining experience and smoke will be a long-forgotten word from your vocabulary.

  1. Electric Can Opener

Opening cans is definitely not my cup of tea.  I always end up spilling the contents on my dress or skinning my fingers trying to do so.

The electric can opener is a smart addition to your array of kitchen appliances.  It comes in handy at times of need and is both useful and affordable.

Don’t forget to pick them up from the counter the next time you go out for shopping.

  1. Professional Stand Mixers

Baking is a therapeutic experience but beating and whisking and mixing manually will result in a sore arm.  If baking is your passion or a hobby or you just love to bake those lovely treats for someone special or it is just that you are a professional baker who is looking forward to set up a baking business, (ah!) a stand mixer is a great investment.

With the stand mixer in place, you can effortlessly bake anything: breads of all types, cookies, pastries, pies, cakes, muffins; name them.  Preparing the batter has never been so easy and it saves so much time and effort.  It is also a great tool for whipping up the frosting/fresh cream to perfection.  It is an obedient six-packed macho gizmo who never complains about overworking.

It can alternatively be used as a masher and a churner.

  1. Masticating Juicers

In the wee hours of the morning, my masticating juicer is working slowly, quietly, without making a sound, while the rest of my household is fast asleep.

They are cold, slow juicers that retain the nutrients intact during the process of juicing as they use crushing action to get the most from the fruits or vegetables.   It is also eco-friendly as the wastage is less. 

A vegetable smoothie or a fruit juice loaded with nutrients is a wonderful way to start any day’s journey.  Masticating juicer is your best kitchen mate for making those for you.

  1. Coffee Maker

Fan of coffee?  Who will say no to a cup of steaming hot cup of black coffee!

Last but not the least, coffee maker is an excellent buy.  It is durable, easy to use, brews your coffee in just one minute and easy to clean as well.  

Brewing up your own coffee has never been so easy.

Did you know that you can make even tea and a hot cup of chocolate using this electric coffee pot?

As I wrap it up, there is nothing better than homemade food that is prepared with your heart and soul and loaded with love.  And these gadgets mightily contribute to keeping that tradition, alive, blazing and dazzling.

Happy cooking, guys!
