A Guide to Kitchen Appliances If you take a look around your kitchen then you might well be
surprised at how many kitchen appliances you actually own, or indeed that may wish you had! Most of
us have a range of both large and small kitchen appliances. So, for example you will almost invariably
have various large kitchen appliances including a washing machine; a tumble dryer; a cooker; a
fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. In addition, you will have at least a few small kitchen appliances that
you either use regularly or on odd occasions. These may include a kettle; toaster; coffee maker;
microwave and mini oven that you use regularly and perhaps a blender; smoothie maker; deep fryer;
and food processor that you use every now and then depending on what you are making and who is
about to eat or drink it!We tend to buy small kitchen appliances more frequently than larger ones.
Sometimes we simply need to replace or upgrade an existing appliance and sometimes we can`t resist
temptation and simply want to try out something new. Whatever the reason behind your purchase you
need to put some time and thought into which appliance you buy. One of the first things you need to
think about when you are looking for small kitchen appliances is how much space you have and where
they will go in your kitchen. Some appliances will `live` on worktops all of the time. Classic examples of
this are kettles and toasters. Others may be stored in a cupboard until you need to use them after which
they go back in the cupboard again. Both the cupboard and surface space you have available will thus
have a bearing on the appliance that you buy.By far the majority of people tend to choose kitchen
appliances in certain colours and styles, primarily with a match to the overall colour scheme in their
kitchen in mind. Cosmetics issues aside, it is well worth taking the time to read reviews and to find out
what the kitchen appliances actually do. There`s no point wasting money on an appliance that does
scores of things if you only want it to do the basics. It may impress your friends but bear in mind the old
adage: the more it does, the more there is to go wrong. On a practical level you should also look into
issues such as safety. The appliances that you buy MUST conform to all relevant safety standards and
should carry some proof of this such as a BSI mark or the European CE marking. It is also important to
check out the warranty and after sales facilities. You need to know what you can do (and what the
retailer or manufacturer will do) if something goes wrong with the appliance. Most of us also consider it
useful to know how easy it is to have the appliance repaired or to get spare parts later if you need them.
That dazzling chrome toaster made in the Czech republic may lose its appeal when confronted with a 6
month waiting time for spares!Many kitchen appliances will also come with a range of utensils. So, for
example, a food processor may come with a set of beaters, cutters, whisks and spatulas. These may well
be useful, if not indispensable and the range available is often determined by your choice manufacturer
and model. Finally, if you buy a Kitchen Appliance choose wisely
