6 household appliances for your wedding list
Congratulations – you’re getting married! We know that every wedding comes with an enormous to-do list, but don’t let the details get you too bogged down.
To help you out, here’s our advice on the best household appliances for your wedding list.
1. Stand mixer
Nothing looks as stylish on your kitchen counter as a stand mixer, so be sure to add one to your wedding list for extra interior design points.
A pastel-coloured KitchenAid is the perfect addition, but there are lots of other options too, each with their own features, styles and colours.
2. Coffee maker
To make sure your mornings get off to the right start or for after-dinner drinks for family or guests, a coffee maker is an essential piece of kit.
From quick and easy capsule coffee makers to a professional, Italian inspired machine, do your research to find a coffee maker that’s right for you.
3. Slow cooker
Nothing beats getting home from a long and tiring day at work to be greeted by a delicious stew bubbling away in the slow cooker.
While slow cookers are best-known for winter-warmer recipes, they are very versatile and can be used for almost anything – including puddings, joints of meat and lasagnas. You can even cook your usual morning porridge overnight, for the ultimate wake-up call.
4. Bread maker
Just like the slow cooker, bread makers win major points for the homely smell of cooking with minimal effort.
Just put in the ingredients, set the timer and wake up to the smell of freshly baked bread ready for breakfast.
Juicers are popular gifts and a nice alternative from other small items such as toasters. There are two main types – centrifugal and masticating – with the former being cheapest and most popular.
Centrifugal juicers use blades and a sieve to separate the juice from the pulp but you’ll need to chop up the fruit or veg first, while masticating juicers often take longer but don’t require you to chop up the ingredients. A masticating juicer is your best option if you want to juice softer fruits such as berries.
6. Tumble dryer
If you’ve already got a washing machine, a tumble dryer will be next on your list of must-have household appliances for married life.
During the wet winter months, you can dry your clothes indoors instead of slinging damp jumpers and t-shirts over radiators or on a giant, cumbersome clothes horse.
