Top Kitchen Gadgets in 2016
A new year brings with it new innovations and inventions, and technology that was state of the art in 2015 can be outdated as technology progresses and successors are created. As well as portable technology like mobile phones, and home entertainment systems, there is also a whole host of gadgets that are designed for our kitchens.
Premier Housewards 3 piece non stick 2 in 1 round cake pan set
For budding bakers and experienced chefs alike, having the right equipment is important to creating the perfect cake or pastry dish. The 3 piece, 2 in 1 cake pan set from Premier Housewards is ideal for people of all experience levels. The interchangeable bottom section means it can be used for creating a variety of cakes and baked goods, and the non-stick base means there is no need for scraping sponge or pastry off the bottom!
Colourworks collapsible colander
Although very useful to our everyday cooking, colanders can’t be described as compact. Cupboard space in a kitchen is always at a premium, and a colander can take up quite a bit of room, which is why this collapsible colander from Colourworks is a simple yet perfect addition to any kitchen.
Lloytron Coffee Grinder
Making the perfect cup of coffee is a skill that takes many attempts to perfect, but if you have the perfect coffee grounds, then creating a delicious cup is made much easier. The Lloytron coffee grinder grinds coffee quickly any easily, removing the risk of error. What’s more, it can be used for more than just coffee – spices can be blended easily without the surprisingly difficult action of using a pestle and mortar.
Marks & Spencer lemon squeezer
Another tricky aspect of cooking and food creation is juicing. Lemon juice is a commonly used ingredient in a wide range of dishes, from starters to sweets, but juicing the fruit itself can be quite difficult to perfect. The Marks and Spencer lemon squeezer removes the hassle – simply put half a lemon into the squeezer, squeeze it tightly and all the juice will be released from the fruit. Not only is this easier than doing it by hand, you will also extract a lot more juice from the lemon than you would by doing it manually.
Culinare one touch can opener
Fastening a can opener to the lid of a can and smoothly opening the lid is a notoriously tricky task. Culinare’s one touch can opener will seamlessly remove the lid from your tins and cans at the touch of the button, saving you time – and you also don’t have to worry about cutting your finger on any jagged edges!
Joseph Joseph Elevate tongs
These ingenious tongs from Joseph Joseph are focused on combining functionality while staying hygienic, even when they are not in use. The tongs stay above your kitchen worktop when they are laid down, which ensures nothing from the tongs makes a mess on the worktop, and nothing on the worktop can contaminate your tongs.
Range Smart Thermometer
Ensuring you don’t over or undercook your food is often a case of checking the progress of the dish every so often, which can be time consuming and inconvenient. However, with the Range Smart Thermometer, this needn’t be an issue. Linking with your iPhone or iPad, the hand-washable, food safe thermometer can withstand temperatures up to 450 degrees fahrenheit, and the cable is strong and resilient enough to go in the oven. What’s more, the user friendly display simplifies the usage, and you can check results online to help you perfect your recipes.
By making use of some of these innovations, you can help bring your kitchen into 2016 whilst making life easier for yourself when it comes to creating your favourite dishes.
