When it comes to finding the right kitchen appliances it can be difficult to fine the perfect ones for your needs. Your kitchen appliances are some of the biggest investments you will make so you want to ensure they are quality which will last you a long time. There is a lot to think about when buying kitchen appliances, from energy saving, to high end designer models, to low cost models, how do you choose?
Refrigerator – This may seem like an easy choice right? You want the big flashy American style one with an ice machine and drinks dispenser, right? Well, this might not necessarily be the right choice for you. Think about how much food you will be storing in your fridge at any given time, do you need so much room? Having a big fridge in your kitchen may look great, but you can be wasting a lot of energy and money if its not being used to its full potential. For larger families, larger capacity units will be necessary, as well as the ability for longer preservation of food. Higher end models that offer dual refrigeration, on-door controls, and energy efficiency may be more important for your family’s needs. If there are only a few people in your home, you may want to opt for a small built-in model, which looks just as fantastic!
Oven/Stove – The right oven for you will depend on how much of a cook you are in the kitchen? The oven you choose can really affect the way you cook your food. Convection over conventional ovens tends to use more energy but for expert cooks they enjoy the even distribution over heat and can usually cook their food faster and with more control. However, if you’re just an amateur and just use the oven and stove when is needed then you will benefit more from an electric stove and oven are your best bets.
Washing Machine – Again when choosing your washing machine, consider how many people are in your home? If you have a large family it is likely your washing machine could be used daily and therefore you will needs once with a larger capacity and one which will last you a long time without having to replace it.
