If you need to stock and furnish a kitchen but don’t know what appliances to buy, you might want to read this post. If you’ve already been to a home improvement store, you’ve probably seen a huge range of products on the shelves. Nowadays there are endless appliances with even more functions to make our lives easier.

But you still have to know what to pick, what good prices are, and how you’re going to use the appliances. We’re going to help you out with that and tell you which kitchen appliances are truly vital to your home.

We’ve divided these appliances into two groups to make it even easier. First, there are the basic, classic appliances you’ll find in any home.

Second, we’ve looked at the current appliance market and found the newest, most useful appliances to help you out.

Basic kitchen appliances

The first step when furnishing a kitchen is to buy all the basic, fundamental appliances for your daily life. They come in lots of varieties and sizes, so the main thing is to find the ones that go best with your house and fit your budget.

Here are the kitchen appliances you absolutely must have:

  • A fridge: you need this to store your food at the right temperature and make sure it keeps. You should ideally get one with a freezer, which will give you even more storage space and food options. We also prefer No Frost fridges, though they’re a bit more expensive. No building up of ice will help you keep it clean.
  • Glass stove and oven: obviously every kitchen should have a place to cook food. For this, we’ve chosen the glass stove and oven combination. That way you can cook everything you need. Pick out a size that works for your house and how many people you have to cook for. A cheaper, easier option would be a gas stove, but the downside is that you have to replace the canisters often and it doesn’t stay as clean as a glass stovetop.

  • A dishwasher: these make your life so much easier. It’s hard to imagine living in a house without one. There’s a bit less variety on the market with these, but you can still get one of the size and capacity that your house needs.
  • Microwave: if we’d made this list a few years back we wouldn’t have included this. But it’s hard to deny that microwaves have become a vital part of any kitchen with their many functions, small sizes, and low price tag. You can always heat up food on the stove, but microwaves are cleaner and faster.

The most useful new appliances

The way our world works, there are constantly new appliances coming onto the market to fill household needs. This is why it’s important to know which ones are truly useful and can make your day to day life easier.

But you’ll need to make sure it’s worth the investment because some of them are pretty expensive. So, do some calculations based on how much you’re going to use them and how much time they’ll save you.

Out of all the new things on the market, there’s one that really stands out to us. They’ve created a household cleaning revolution, and more and more people are getting them.

We’re talking about the intelligent robot cleaner: these came out a few years ago. They can save you a lot of time cleaning your floors. They’ve become so popular that more and more people are buying them and the price has actually gone way down since they first came onto the market. If you don’t have much time to spend cleaning, you can just program this robot and it will get to the hardest-to-reach parts of your house.

Every kitchen should have a fridge, oven, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. Once you have all that, then you can start purchasing other appliances to fill your needs!
