Electrical Equipment for the Kitchen

 

There seems to be an ever-increasing array of electrical appliances designed to make the cook's life easier; there's machines to make bread, brew coffee, squeeze oranges or mix batter; in fact, just about every task that needs to be tackled in the kitchen may be carried out by a machine - including the washing up!

However, before rushing out to buy the latest time-saving gadget, make sure that you take time to consider whether or not you will really make use of it. Far too many of us have bulky machines that we have barely used cluttering up our worktops or languishing in a cupboard.

In this section, we take a look at the appliances you might want to buy, along with some of the features you need to look out for.
