Spring is quickly approaching, and you know what that means – we can soon cook up some of our favorite cool and refreshing spring and summer meals. But, what’s refreshing juice or a fun birthday cake if you don’t have the proper tools to make them.
This time of year it’s always great to freshen up your house, purge the old, and make room for the new. Plus, it’s a great excuse to go shopping! As you spend time cleaning up and re-organising in the coming weeks, take inventory of the new household products you need to make your family’s favorite springtime dishes.
Bring spring into your home with bright, fresh linens. Tea towels, oven mitts and aprons with brightly coloured flowers, summer fruits, bold patterns and fun sayings will instantly add some zest to your kitchen.
Kettle and Toaster Set
Ditch your old, mismatched kettle and toaster and replace it with a modern, quick and easy-to-clean set. With a 3kW output kettle, boil your water in up to 40 seconds faster. Don’t let the sleek new look fool you. Even a trendy toaster, works quickly and efficiently to toast bread, waffles, bagels and tea cakes.
During the warmer months, there is no excuse as to why your fruit basket should stay full of fresh, sweet, juicy fruit. Encourage your family to eat more of the healthy and delicious stuff by updating the fruit basket. One that is made of a shiny metal or that has ornate details is more attractive and will entice the family to eat more.
Does your entire hand and arm ever get sore and weak after whisking together large amounts of cake batter? A sturdy stand mixer makes baking dozens of cupcakes making dough from scratch much easier. It allows you to multitask and focus on other preparations, and it saves your arm from doing all the work.
Juicer and Blender
Nothing helps beat warm weather like a cool gazpacho or a sweet smoothie. Whip up a healthy and energising snack with the aid of a state-of-the-art blender. It quickly process and mixes food to the consistency you desire. Pick fresh lemons or oranges from the garden and make a cool juice in no time with a powerful juicer.
Do the warmer days and increased sunlight have you heading to the garden for tea time? Go out in style and without dropping anything with the help of a sturdy tray. Whether silver, slate, natural wood or woven wood, pick one up that fits your style and can hold all your scrumptious finger sandwiches and snacks.
Mini Fridge or Cooler
Oftentimes, our fridges are packed full of food and there is little room left for beers, wine, bottled water and other beverages. A mini fridge is great for storing personal beverages. Keeping it stocked at all times will ensure that guests never have to visit without a cold one in hand.
