Must Have Kitchen Appliances For Your Kitchen

These kitchen appliances will fit any budget and help improve your morning and late-night routine.

Cooking dinner and making food for your children can be cooked with a press of a button with these kitchen appliances.

Let’s learn more about these kitchen appliances and how to enhance your new kitchen.

1. Keurig Coffee Maker


The Keurig coffee maker is a game-changer for coffee drinkers. It’s been around long enough that people will recognize the coffee maker strictly from its name.

A coffee maker that requires no coffee pot is great for a single cup of coffee.

Fill the water in the dispenser, insert the special coffee ground cup, and close the lid.

There is no more waiting in drive-through lines or 20 minutes for a pot of coffee to brew. They also have a version of an espresso machine that we highly recommend. Nothing is better than a hot cup of coffee and espresso for a little boost in the mornings.

The Keurig should be a standard for any household with one or more coffee drinkers.

2. Instant Pot

Instant pot

The Instant Pot is a new cooking appliance that has replaced seven different cooking appliances.

The seven appliances it’s replaced are the pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute, yogurt maker, and warmer.

The Instant Pot features include a pressure monitor, temperature, timekeeper, heat intensity, and duration throughout the cooking process. This smart kitchen appliance is great to set and forget.

The Instant Pot is easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. It comes standard with 10+ different settings that can be used in various cooking ways.

3. 5 In 1 Griddler

5 and 1 griddler

This item is a must-have in the kitchen, especially if you have a studio apartment or no room for a grill.

The 5 in 1 Griddler is a tremendous innovation that acts like five different grilling options in a tiny, countertop-fitting appliance.

The 5 in 1 countertop unit works as a griddle, grill, panini press, full grill, half grill/half griddle.

The BPA-free grill has removable 11″ x 9″ dishwasher-safe nonstick cooking plates that are great for draining grease.

The 5 in 1 Griddler has temperature controls for both sides of the griddle that can be used to cook two different types of foods simultaneously. This kitchen appliance could be all you need this holiday season.

4. Panini Maker

Panini Maker

Why order panini’s when you can make them fresh in your kitchen?

The panini maker is great for savory sandwiches, quesadillas, and turnovers. Flipping the sandwich over in a pan is unnecessary, as the top and bottom nonstick press cook each side evenly.

Plugin, the panini maker, wait for the light to turn green (roughly 5 min heat-up time), and your panini is ready to cook!

5. Kitchenaid Kitchen Mixer

The standalone kitchen mixer is an attachment that helps save time and helps save energy in making meals. This must have kitchen appliance is great for mixing large bowls in half the time it would take you to do it.

The attachments are what make this standalone kitchen mixer a must-have on your countertop!

6. Baker’s Rack With Chopping Table

This baker’s rack is a great addition to the kitchen and to a chef’s kitchen ensemble.

This is a great alternative if you want to preserve your kitchen cabinet shelves.

7. Vegetable Slicer

Vegetable Slicer

This isn’t an ordinary vegetable slicer. This must-have kitchen appliance, 5 in 1 spiral slicer, offers five different ways to chop up vegetables, cheese, and more. Blades that come with each standard purchase are spiral, ribbon, straight cut, julienne, and a cheese grater.

The slicer takes up minimal space on the countertop and doesn’t leave a mess as most traditional slicers do—clean cuts from every slice, giving you an easy-to-use and clean appliance at your fingertips.

The ABS plastic is non-toxic and BPA-free. It easily disassembles for easy dishwasher cleaning as well.

8. Vacuum Sealer

Vacuum Sealer

Vacuum sealers are now easier than ever to purchase at a price that fits everyone’s budget.

Why vacuum seal your food? Here are a few reasons:

  • Preserve food up to 5x’s longer than baggies or containers
  • Increases shelf life of food
  • Easy to store in the freezer

If you’re one who consistently meal prep on Sundays and has leftover meat, the vacuum sealer is a must have kitchen appliance.

9. Crock-Pot

Crock pot

If you’re not interested in the Instant Pot above, the Crock-pot is a great alternative. Perfect for slow cooking, this crock-pot can fit a 6lbs roast, serving 8+ people.

Made from silver stainless steel on the outside, this affordable crock pot is the ideal kitchen appliance for cooks who like to slow-cook meals.

It is also perfect for busy, working parents who want to make a meal in the morning and have it ready to eat by nighttime. This must have kitchen appliance is great for families who enjoy a warm meal.

10. Double Tiered Food Steamer

Double Tiered Food Steamer

This unique kitchen appliance is great for steaming vegetables and meat in two slots.

Whether it’s vegetables, meat, fish, or poultry, the double-tiered food steam is an excellent purchase for all cooking families.

Transparent steaming bowls allow you to visually steam your food, as well as the automatic 60-minute timer can be set for busy cooks.

The nylon heads are a perfect nonstick surface for easy cooking and cleanup.

Included is a solid spoon, soup ladle, solid turner, whisk, potato pusher, grater, scissors, spatula, peeler, pizza cutter, and more.

12. Basket Deep Fryer

Basket Deep Fryer

The deep basket fryer is a restaurant-quality deep fryer that deep-fries french fries, onion rings, wings, and more.

One large basket deep fryer or two small baskets for multiple deep frying is supported. Holds 4 liters of oil and an adjustable thermostat of 175 to 375 degrees.

13. Non-Stick Cookware

The bundle includes frying pans, saucepans, casserole pans, pasta servers, and more.

14. Toaster


One of the more straightforward kitchen appliances, the toaster is great for toasting bread for a delicious sandwich.

The reason we’ve chosen this toaster is because of its defrosted settings. If you keep your bagels in the freezer, this is a great option to defrost before toasting slowly.

It is equipped with an easy-to-remove crumb tray that makes cleaning as simple as cooking. This ETL, FDA-approved toaster is BPA-free and rustproof.

Ice Cream Maker

Ice Cream Maker

The bonus item on our list is the ice cream maker. What’s the point of eating all this delicious food if we can’t have ice cream afterward?

This all-in-one ice cream maker is easy to use, and mix your favorite condiments into one bowl.

Add your favorite ice cream to the bowl, add up to 3 toppings in the side containers, a pull-down lever, and instant ice cream perfection.


These items above are must-haves in the kitchen to make essentially any food.

At a minimum, we recommend purchasing the Instant Pot, which in itself can prepare almost any meal you would like, as one of the must-have kitchen appliances.

These 14 different items can be bought altogether or on separate occasions. Purchasing items in your kitchen that you will use for your food types is essential.

If you’re consistently eating vegetables, appliances make sense to cut and store vegetables.

Look at the appliances on the list and determine what you will use daily, not just once in a while.
