We all like to dream don’t we? Well amongst my biggest dreams at the moment are what I’d like my kitchen to be like, and most importantly what will be in my kitchen when I eventually find and move into my new house.
In the following post I just wanted to play out the fantasy a bit and talk about the products I have earmarked as important components for my dream kitchen.
Dream Coffee Machine
In my opinion no kitchen is complete without a totally amazing coffee machine and after a lot of searching I think I have found the one I would like the most. It is not the most expensive, nor is it really the fanciest, but it is one that I fell head over heels in love with the minute I saw it. It is also the best rated machine on Amazon.
10-Cup Classic Series Glass Coffee Maker by Chemex
The thing that became clear when I was looking at coffee machine that there was a lot, but a lot of people rave about Chemex products and they are considered to be a pristine coffeemaker. They make use of all the right methods necessary to perfectly brewing coffee. The great thing about the above coffee machine is that it has no moving parts and is guaranteed to work forever, unless it is dropped, smashed or broken in some other way.
I love how it looks and Illinois Institute of Technology seemed to agree as they shortlisted it as one of the 100 best designed modern products. I think it’s a great touch with the collar made out of polished wood and the nice leather touch that give it a very old-fashioned look.
Crazy Space Saving Toaster That Doubles Up As a Grill
Obviously as a fan of bacon and eggs, there was something else I definitely need in my kitchen.
A toaster that is space saving and includes a pan for cooking eggs or beans – the ultimate breakfast appliance! The one I like the most is probably this one –
Tefal Toast N Beans
This is a toaster that cooks a ½ tin of baked beans as well as your toast to go with it. It can also be used to boil or cook some eggs, if that’s what you fancy. Although this is obviously aimed at the busy working singleton, campers and students – I love quirky appliances and gadgets and love the idea of doing some toast and eggs at the same time from the exact same machine.
The one thing I hate about most toasters is when you are making crumpets, bagels or English muffins and have to try and fiddle to pull the toasted loveliness out and end up burning your fingers. Well another advantage to this toaster is the toast-lift feature which means burnt fingers are a thing of the past.
There are a couple of other things I have my eyes on.
3in1 BBQ Charcoal Barbecue Smoker with heat indicator by TecTake
Since I love bacon so much, my girlfriend suggested that I should try making some at home and I really love the flavour of smoky bacon – so what would be better than having my very own smoker in the kitchen? Nothing at all, that’s what! This one looks pretty good and it performs the functions of 3 different appliances so that helps reduce space. So I could roast, grill and smoke meat – particularly bacon.
Electric Precision Food Slicer 19cm Blade + Includes 2 Extra Blades for Bread and Meat by Andrew James
If I am going to start making my own bacon in my own house, I need something to slice it before I smoke it and that’s why I would have something like this Food Slicer by Andrew James. The great thing about this is that I could use it to slice the bread, bacon, tomato, onion and whatever else I want for a great sarnie or butty!
