The Best Kitchen Appliances For The Home – Guidebook

Whether you’re a hobbyist or just starting out, having the right appliances in your kitchen makes everyday cooking easier and whets your appetite for new experiments. But the selection of kitchen appliances is huge and multifaceted. We want to provide some relief.

Therefore, we have not only written a checklist with the most important criteria for kitchen appliances for the home, but also compiled many product recommendations for.

Checklist For Kitchen Appliances

Safety
  • When we talk about kitchen appliances, we usually mean electronic appliances. In order to be able to guarantee a high level of safety for these, attention should be paid to quality seals:
    The GS seal indicates the tested safety of an electrical appliance.
    The CE seal is not necessarily a seal of quality, but it does indicate compliance with the European standard.
  • When it comes to sharp-edged kitchen appliances, always look for enclosed protective covers. Blades can thus be covered and stored more safely.
Connection
  • Particular care should be taken when connecting large electrical appliances such as a stove due to high voltages.
  • The connection of such devices should only be carried out by qualified personnel.
  • Before you buy, make sure that the manufacturer also offers an installation service.
Way Of Application
  • The particular kitchen appliance should always be selected according to the intention of its use.
  • For example, if you plan to make smoothies regularly from now on, you should choose an appliance with a high power, for example, from 1000 watts.
  • For devices that are intended for less frequent use, low wattages around 300 watts are also absolutely sufficient. Here it depends on how often and what is to be processed.
  • The size of the device should also depend on the type of application.
  • For example, those who plan to regularly make coffee for the whole family should rather choose a larger coffee maker with a capacity of about 2 liters.
  • For those who consume or need less coffee, the conventional 1 to 1.5 l are sufficient.
Material And Durability
  • If you are looking for durability in kitchen utensils, you should always pay attention to robust and safe workmanship.
  • Many kitchen utensils consist of several small parts, which should be stable in themselves but also in the connection.
  • Particularly with knives and all steel devices should be paid attention to the note “Stainless Steel”. This means “Stainless Steel” and guarantees a long life of the product.
  • The different warranty should also be taken into account here. Many kitchen appliances can still be exchanged for a few years if damaged due to wear and tear. So it is advisable to pay attention to the guarantees and keep any certificates well.
  • In general, it can be noted that plastic kitchen appliances have less stability than products made of metal or hard plastic.
Accessories And Cleaning
  • Different kitchen appliances also require different cleaning:
    Not everything is dishwasher safe or can be treated with the same cleaning agent.
  • Make sure you have the appropriate cleaning products on hand.
  • If you plan to use certain appliances regularly, see if there are any accessories or replacement parts available before you buy:
    For mixers, it may be possible to change the hooks, blenders may be applicable with other blades, etc.
