When I was a little kid, instead of asking for normal presents such as Limited 2 clothes or a skip-it , I wanted kitchen appliances. For my 10th birthday I asked for a lime green Smoothie Maker(basically a glorified blender with a spout). And for Hanukkah of 1997, I asked for a crepe maker. Looking back at my presents, I realize this was slightly strange compared to the average teenage girl wishlist. Although my smoothie maker broke in a year, today my crepe maker is still one of my favorite small kitchen appliances. I even brought it to my college apartment, and use it quite often.
Small kitchen appliances are a must for any successful kitchen or crazed-crepe-loving girl. Although a whisk, and spatula are essential they do not perform like specialty small kitchen appliances do. With technology improving by the minute, kitchen appliances are becoming crazier than ever. If you don’t believe me check out this list by Mashable, including a iPhone activated grill thermometer that alerts you when your meat is perfectly cooked. All craziness aside, Here are my personal Top 4 favorite kitchen appliances.
1. Classic Crepe Maker- VillaWare
My favorite small appliance yet. It is a lot easier than trying to flip the crepes in a pan. It also makes them super thin, which is what you want for french style crepes.
2. Breakfast Sandwich Maker-Hamilton
This one is relatively new to the market, and I cant imagine myself living without it! Its so easy, and way healthier than buying one from McDonald’s. My favorite combo: English muffin, sausage, and egg.
3. Popcorn Popper-Orville
My family got me hooked on this. I remember when I moved in to my apartment 2 years ago this was the one thing that my dad made sure I had! These popcorn poppers are so easy to use and popcorn tastes just as delicious!
4. Immersion Tool-Cuisinart
This is so much better than my bulky smoothie maker I had when I was 10. I mainly use it for smoothies but it also works wonderfully in soups!
