Redoing the countertops, cabinets, and floors of your kitchen are always exciting projects. That said, as important as they are, there are other aspects of your modern kitchen that deserve your attention during the renovation process. Getting top-of-the-line appliances is just as important as having enough light to work by and snazzy backsplashes that are functional as well as aesthetically pleasing.
Updated Refrigerators and Freezers
Food preservation has come a long way throughout the centuries. Refrigeration is one of the greatest inventions civilization has ever conceived of; ice rooms used to exist, but before such a structure emerged, other solutions had to be used – such as excessive amounts of salt along with fermenting or pickling. The advent of refrigerated transport train cars allowed more food to be carried across the country without spoiling. So don’t take your refrigerator and freezer for granted – they are two of the most important elements of your modern kitchen. Humidity controls, air purification systems, and fresh-keeping zones are all waves of the future.
The Addition of Induction Cooktops
Stovetops are a traditional part of many kitchens. Even cramped and inefficient kitchens typically have this conventional setup – whether or not there is a range hood to be found. On the other hand, you might want to consider adding an induction cooktop to your modern kitchen instead. What’s so special about them? They are safer to cook with, are energy-efficient, easy to clean up, and best of all are easy to control which means you can reduce spills, splashes, and cooking fires.
Slow cookers and pressure cookers are becoming more and more popular these days – especially given how busy life is even while making a conscious effort to stay home as much as possible. Pressure cookers are highly versatile and allow you to perform a variety of cooking tasks such as sauteing, slow cooking, cooking rice, and preparing soups and stews. There’s not as much heat loss, it cooks much more quickly (meaning fewer wait times) and can help you save money on electricity use!
A Brand New Microwave
Using ovens for every meal can become tedious and time-consuming. That’s one of the reasons why microwaves became as common as they did. Even though the best microwaves can still cost hundreds of dollars, it allows you to reheat your meals more quickly and easily and defrost something before you pop it in your air-fryer oven that can bake, roast, or broil almost anything that you want.
