Once kitchen remodels are over, it’s tempting to want to upgrade the rest of your gadgets and appliances in the room. Consider treating yourself to one of the cost-effective, functional tools that will make your new room feel even more fun.
- The desire to eat healthy can’t be met without purchasing tools to cook healthy meals. Invest in a cast iron pan, which are gaining in popularity again because of their many uses. They’re also considered safer for a person’s health than nonstick pans. Cast iron doesn’t require fatty oil and it will also cook more evenly because of the heat distribution.
- If you already have a KitchenAid mixer, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that you can also become a Top Chef. The company has rolled out several affordable attachments that help the appliance double as a juicer, a pasta press and ice cream maker, among other things.
- If you’re sick of feeling as if you don’t have enough counter space when cooking and have to bend over to read that recipe, invest in one of the simplest kitchen helpers: A Cookbook holder. These will prop up your cookbooks and magazines and some will even protect the pages from spills thanks to a clear acrylic cover.
