10 Things Your Kitchen Can Do Without
The list in more detail
If you are one of those people who raised their eyebrow with every single one of the items listed above this 10 things your kitchen can do without is totally for you. We are all about versatile appliances and objects. Why should you worry about getting a knife block if you can store the knives in the drawers with the rest of the matching bits and bobs, especially when it is not very space friendly.
That one is out of the way. Now back to the beginning of our 10 things your kitchen can do without. No wonder toaster oven is on top of the list. Oh well, everyone has one in their kitchen. But if you don’t – not a big deal, toast your bread in a regular oven for a while. You can get back to purchasing one when you feel like your life is not complete without one.
Rice maker makes the top three in the list and to be honest, I personally do not have one and never really felt the need to reach out for one. Cook the rice in a normal pan on your stove and you are good to go. And the juicer? If you will spend that much time at home to make juices then go get one if not use your blender or the Nutribullet to make smoothies that taste the same and have the lovely crunchy feel in them. You will know the feeling once you take a sip.
Bread maker we did include in our 10 things your kitchen can do without just to show you that there are things people actually have the time and energy to make on their own. This is plausible – we have to admit but for every day use it is not really a necessity. Note: there are bread recipes that do not even require a bread maker.
Kitchen Aid mixer and food processor are really interchangeable. You can have one of these and none of these and it won’t hurt since in the beginning you can simply purchase a hand mixer and get the job done no less perfectly. Moreover, it won’t cost you much.
Espresso machine is for our coffee enthusiasts. Surely, once you have the machine at home you will spend less time queueing at Starbucks or your local coffee shops. However, for now, just skip this. Use your normal coffee maker or French coffee press to make a cup of delight each morning.
The last two in the list of 10 things you kitchen can do without are self-explanatory. You will need no more than 8 pieces of each; mugs, plates, bowls, etc. If, however, your mood swings are dependent upon the types of mugs you drink your tea from then go ahead and invest in a few more.
