If you haven’t shopped for kitchen appliances recently, you might be shocked with the number of devices on the market all with varying uses. Fridges now are smarter than ever with Wi-Fi capabilities to greet you with the current weather on your way to a snack. Juicers, fryers and coffee machines may not have been seen as essentials a couple of decades ago but over the last few years they’ve made a home for themselves in my list of seven modern kitchen appliances that you can’t do without.

Check out the pages of Kitchen Appliances form Harvey Norman while I take you through some of my stand outs from the array of choice homeowners now face when decorating their kitchens.

Soup Blenders offer the means to make a ridiculously easy yet tasty meal. With varying settings to allow you to experiment with chunky or smooth soups, the heating elements ensure that you are delivered the hot soup you crave.

Most of you would agree, there isn’t much that beats fresh bread with hot soup, which leads me to my next ‘must-have’. The Sunbeam SmartBake Bread Maker means you can produce a 1.25kg loaf of bread in the comfort of your own kitchen. However, the multipurpose functionality of this bread maker also allows it to prepare pasta and pizza dough too!

Redirecting your thoughts from pizza, let’s move onto my next appliance you can’t live without. With many household’s health awareness rising, air-fryers mean you don’t have to sacrifice the foods you love in the name of health. Thanks to air-fryers, you can eliminate around 80% of fat that regular fryers add to your food. Models such as the Philips Viva Collection TurboStar Airfryer also lets you bake, grill, and roast!

On the topic of health, Juicers are a perfect go-to for when you need a meal on the run. Homemade juices unearth up to 20% more vitamins and minerals than generic store-bought juices, which in itself should be reason enough to make the investment. Juicers that feature wide feed tubes such as the Breville Froojie Fountain Juicer, allows you to juice fruit and vegetables whole, saving you time and effort.

Sandwich toasters are essential in every kitchen. Those nights where you’re exhausted but not yet ready to give in to the temptation of takeaway are perfect opportunities for a crunchy, cheesy melt. Height adjustable top plates allow for everything from a classic cheese melt through to a chunky club sandwich. Not only is the Breville Adjusta Grill & Press Sandwich Maker perfect for toasties, but it is perfect for open melts and breakfast delights such as pancakes as well!

Saying a coffee machine is an essential in any kitchen is a bit of an obvious one. However, if you don’t already have one, you might not be aware of the variety available to you. Coffee machines have the ability to transform your life if you’re normally accustomed to just instant sachets. Ranging from the use of capsules to the grinding of whole beans, it has never been easier to reach cafe quality in your own home with what is essentially your own personal barista. Key Features
