Dream Kitchen: The Top 7 Appliances to Save Up For
Anybody who’s been cooking or baking since a young age has been dreaming of the kitchen they’ll call their own one day for a long time. And besides what kind of backsplash and countertop it will have, making a list of top-of-the-line appliances to save up for is only natural. They may not be in the budget yet, but add these gadgets to the list, as they’re definitely dreamy.
Scanomat The Top Brewer (price upon request)
It may seem like a normal faucet, but the Top Brewer actually crafts the perfect latte, cappuccino, or espresso. The tip of the tap features a milk foamer that cleans itself after every use. And once you’ve had your morning coffee, the Top Brewer also provides chilled drinking water, cold milk, hot water, and steam (for blanching vegetables, for instance.)
Grand Cuisine The Blast Chiller (price upon request)
What to do when guests are soon arriving and you realise you haven’t chilled the champagne? Cue The Blast Chiller. Designed by Grand Cuisine, an offshoot of Electrolux, The Blast Chiller can chill and freeze food and beverages in a matter of minutes. For example, 10 bottles of Champagne can be chilled to 8° C in just thirty minutes.
Vitamix Professional Series 300 Blender ($530)
How do professional juice and smoothie shops make the most delicious blended beverages? Often it’s because of their Vitamix. The blender is the most powerful and durable machine on the market. Besides making your morning malt, the Vitamix can make nut butters, grind grains into flour, emulsify salad dressings, and more. (We’ve even heard a rumour it can chop up a block of wood.)
Sub-Zero BI-36RG All Refrigerator with Glass Door ($7435)
If your dream kitchen looks like it’s straight from an episode of MTV’s Cribs, you need a Sub-Zero refrigerator with a glass door. There is nothing that shows you have your life together more than a well-organised fridge. Plus, if this is really a dream, you won’t be the one to have to organise it.
La Cornue CornuFé Stove ($8600)
Blake Lively isn’t the only one who’s dreamt about a La Cornue range since the first time she ever saw one. The French company has been a leader in the marketplace for over a century. Their classic look and unparalleled performance put them at the top of many dream lists. And now, because of Williams-Sonoma, they’re just a click away (dangerous).
Dacor Discovery Wine Station (price upon request)
You’ve heard of beer on tap, but did you know you can also have wine on tap? The Discovery WineStation is the first automated, temperature-controlled, four-bottle wine dispensing and preservation system. Your favourite bottles will be at the ready for sipping for up to 60 days.
Miele Miele CM5000 Espresso Machine ($1300)
If you can’t wait for the Top Brewer, consider dreaming about the Miele CM5000 instead. The first fully automatic countertop espresso system from the German company, the machine will brew you the best caffeinated beverage in just a few easy steps. You’ll never need to go to the coffee shop again when this baby is quietly brewing in your kitchen.
