Top Kitchen Appliances in your Condo

Share via:

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home – and most people would agree to this. This is where meals are made and prepared to satisfy and soothe people’s minds and bodies. So, it is important to be able to give what is best for the heart of our condo or homes.

Here are some things that you need to get for your kitchen:

Microwave / Oven Toaster

The microwave oven is used to quickly and efficiently prepare and heat food for yourself or for guests. It makes it easy and safe to defrost frozen food to readily prepare it for cooking. This appliance is relatively light and compact and can be placed on top of the countertops, shelves, and many more without needing to occupy too much space. If you are living alone or with another person in a condo, the microwave provides simplicity and speed when it comes to heating and cooking food.

This is an essentially useful appliance since it is often used to heat and cook food brought by food delivery services or from leftovers you had. This is also a very safe and simple appliance to use so even children will be able to use it with caution since the food will be hot. It can also be left unattended while heating food unlike induction cookers or stove tops since it timed with a timer set by the user to make sure that the food is cooked or heated to their liking.  It is also very simple and easy to clean the microwave since all you need to do is wipe it down inside and out with a microwave safe cleaner. And if the bottom spin dish is dirty, it can be cleaned by hand with a sponge and dish soap. Overall, the microwave is considered as a must-have in your apartments or condominiums.

Induction Cooker

If you prefer cooking home-made meals instead of relying on food delivery services, then an induction cooker is exactly what you need in your condominium to level up your condo living experience. This will not just allow you to be able to cook food in your condo from scratch, but also be able to reheat food and leftovers. Since most if not all condominiums prohibit the use of gas stoves, induction cookers are perfect since they only need electricity to be able to turn on, it is an energy effective alternative, and its much safer than a gas stoves since induction cookers don’t produce open flames which is dangerous in small spaces such as a condo. The best part about induction cookers is that it is light, compact, and mobile which means you can stow it in cabinets or wherever you want if you are not using it.

Rice Cooker

No Filipino home will ever be complete without a rice cooker since it is considered to be our staple food. If you love rice and eat it at a daily basis then you need to get this appliance for your condo. Since there are already premade measurements on how many cups of rice you want to cook, the water needed for it, and the time it takes to cook, it is a very simple but important appliance. Not only is it used in cooking, but it can cook and steam various types of food as it is a very versatile machine.

Compact Refrigerator

A condo or even every home wouldn’t be complete without having a refrigerator. Especially since we are living in a tropical country where the temperature would get sky high, which leads to unrefrigerated foods, leftovers, and other perishable items to spoil and expire quicker than normal. That is why a compact refrigerator is considered to be one of the important appliances inside a condo. With the use of the compact refrigerator, not only will it be able to store your food and other perishable items, but they will be able to extend the lifespan of fresh produce and leftovers. When it comes to space you won’t have to worry much about it since it can fit in nicely in a corner or beside a countertop. If you plan on purchasing a condominium this should be considered to be one of the first thing you need to buy.

Electric Kettle

If you are one of those people who can’t live without a cup of coffee or tea or even for a cup of noodles, then this appliance would be perfect for your condo. The electric kettle which is an alternative to a water kettle which is usually heated in a stove, is used to heat water. Compared to water kettles which are put on the stove, it heats up water faster and more efficiently and has a feature which automatically shuts off when the water comes to a boil. Those people who are forgetful at times and leave their kettles on the stove would especially appreciate this feature. You will also be able to take and place it anywhere since it is such a compact device which is not limited by a cord.

Dish Washer

There’s a small number of condos and apartments which have this particular appliance however, the automatic dish washer is one of the most useful appliances for your kitchen. Compared to doing the dishes by hand, it saves a huge amount of time and effort while minimizing the risk of breakage through reduced handling of dishes. This appliance will make cleaning up after guests and hosting parties more simplified than it has to be. Through different settings and modes for washing it ensures that the dishes and utensils you load in will be thoroughly be washed and clean.

For future condo owners who will be investing in these appliances, it is important to place them inside a condo unit that has been designed by a trusted real estate developer.
