Buy once and buy well
When it comes to a functioning kitchen, quality appliances and cooking accessories are staple ingredients. Sandra Mclay from Total Food Equipment shows us where to start
When it comes to accessories, what should all kitchens have?
In the kitchen it is important to invest in good quality appliances and accessories that have been designed to last. Pieces should add functionality, and a touch of style, to this practical space.
With more people opting for induction cook-tops, stainless steel-based cookware is a great place to start. Cast iron is also compatible with all stovetops and has the added benefit of allowing you to sear on the stovetop and then place the pan in the oven.
The other essential addition to the kitchen is knives. It is important to remember that more people do damage to themselves with a blunt knife than a sharp one – so maintenance is a must. At Total Food Equipment we offer a knife sharpening service, so you never have to struggle cutting tomatoes again!
What should I consider when it comes to kitchen appliances?
Electrical appliances vary with each household, and, as with other home purchases, it is about buying items that work for you, your family and your lifestyle.
It is important to consider what you like to eat – ensuring your appliances and utensils are suited to your cooking style. Having the right tools on hand for the job makes producing culinary delights at home a breeze.
We are able to work with you to advise on which sizes and models are right for you, taking into consideration your storage space, kitchen layout and, of course, design preferences.
What is the kitchen accessory of the moment?
Spiralizers are the latest fun thing to use. Turning zucchinis or carrots into ribbons or fettuccine noodles, they are great for getting the younger members of the family to eat fresh vegetables.
