As you know – if you’ve been reading the previous blogs, we’ve been minimising our kitchen through our kitchen appliances. The kitchen is 3m by 2.5m which is mostly overcrowded with kitchen cupboards, worktops and pantries; the flat was built sometime in the 1950s apparently and of course, items in the kitchen have come along way since then.
Here is a list of items we got rid of:
- Food Processor
- Food Chopper / Grater
- Kneeder / Mixer
- Coffee / Hot Chocolate Pod Machine
- Glass Blender
- Slow Cooker
- Waffle / Pancake Iron
At first, we didn’t want to get rid of the top 6 as we used them often, however since being on the Keto diet we didn’t need the bottom 5.
However… We did replace them with a kitchen appliance that has multiple uses. We are looking to buy a Thermomix – but the closest and cheapest thing we could find for the time being was a “Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker”.
A 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker;
- a Pressure Cooker
- a Slow Cooker
- a Rice Cooker
- a Yoghurt Maker
- a Steamer
- something that warms up your food
- as well as saute/browns /caramelises your food
A Thermomix will do all of the below;
- Controlled Heating
…Apparently it can also make yoghurt and caramelises your food too; so as soon as we have £945.00 saved towards the Thermomix, it’s bye-bye 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Cooker!
Another thing we purchased was a “7-in-1 Non-Stick Snack Maker; Sandwich Toaster, Waffle Iron, Panni Press, Grill & Omelette, Biscuit, Doughnut Maker”
- a Sandwich Toaster
- a Panni Press / Mini Grill
- a Waffle / Pancake Iron
- a Omelette Maker
- a Biscuit Moulder
- a Doughnut Rings
- a “Nutty” Moulder – for when you want to make something shaped like a devilled egg boat? Who knows!
