Kitting out your kitchen: the coolest gadgets

Print Friendly

Cooking has become one of the UK’s most popular hobbies, with more and more people experimenting in the kitchen and trying out ambitious recipes.

This surge in the number of people cooking for pleasure is at least partly inspired by the rise of the celebrity chef and TV shows that share their secrets.

If you love to cook, you’ll want a kitchen that reflects your passion. Delve into the world of kitchen gadgets and timesaving devices that are perfect for letting you enjoy the fun parts of creating new dishes and offer a high tech twist to the process.

Fun and practical kitchen gadgets

Kitting out your kitchen can be a lot of fun, but you’ll need to start your quest for the perfect gadgets somewhere. Don’t be tempted to jump in at the deep end and purchase expensive electricals without doing some research first. Start your kitchen makeover by getting your basics under control. The Kitchn’s handy list of the 10 most useful gadgets offers the perfect jumping off point and will help you make sure you’re putting your money into something that will have a practical use. Always take a moment to think about how often you might use a particular utensil. Otherwise, you might end up with one of the UK’s many redundant kitchen gadgets, as listed by Just Eat.

 Another great place to find gadgets that make the grade is in The Independent’s bumper guide to the 50 best bits of kitchen gear. Once you’ve had a look through this collection of popular products, you’re sure to be inspired to start shopping. If you’re looking for ways to spice up your kitchen that are more focused on making the space fun than on perfecting your cooking skills, coolest gadgets might have just the kind of inventive and interesting bits and pieces to brighten up your counter tops.

To make sure you’re getting quality brands that will last, turn to sites like Which? and spend some time having a look at their reviews, comparisons and kitchen guide.

Revamping your kitchen with gadgets galore

The celebrity chef phenomenon hasn’t only inspired thousands of people to spend more time in the kitchen, it’s also responsible for many new types of gadgets. Lots of the top chefs have their own line of kitchenware. Jamie Oliver has a particularly large range of kitchen appliances and electric goods – have a look at some of his essential gadgets and see what your kitchen might be missing. Heston Blumenthal has also just launched a new range of kitchen essentials. The Sage selection includes a food processor, stand mixer, espresso machine, blender and juicers and many more, but the price tags are relatively high.

You can also explore the favoured brands of a whole host of celebrity chefs, with a peek at The Guardian’s guide to top chefs’ kitchen kit. That way, you can equip your kitchen with the same products used by some of the UK’s most famous culinary masters.
