Replacing All Those Kitchen Appliances with Multi Functionalism!

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:

  1. Microwave
  2. Food Processor
  3. Food Chopper / Grater
  4. Steamer
  5. Kneeder / Mixer
  6. Toaster
  7. Coffee / Hot Chocolate Pod Machine
  8. Glass Blender
  9. Slow Cooker
  10. 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;

  1. a Pressure Cooker
  2. a Slow Cooker
  3. a Rice Cooker
  4. a Yoghurt Maker
  5. a Steamer
  6. something that warms up your food
  7. as well as saute/browns /caramelises your food

 

A Thermomix will do all of the below;

  1. Mixing
  2. Blending
  3. Weighing
  4. Steaming
  5. Stirring
  6. Whipping
  7. Emulsifying
  8. Grinding
  9. Controlled Heating
  10. Cooking
  11. Chopping
  12. Kneading

…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”

  1. a Sandwich Toaster
  2. a Panni Press / Mini Grill
  3. a Waffle / Pancake Iron
  4. a Omelette Maker
  5. a Biscuit Moulder
  6. a Doughnut Rings
  7. a “Nutty” Moulder – for when you want to make something shaped like a devilled egg boat? Who knows!
