The best appliances and fittings for a low-maintenance kitchen

Always felt that your appliances and kitchen fittings could use an upgrade? Get hold of these top picks for fuss-free food prep and a streamlined kitchen environment.

A smart fridge

The main reason we love LG’s InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators? The complete ease of knowing exactly what’s in your fridge. Just tap the glass door twice and watch your favourite shelves light up, revealing the contents without letting cold air escape. The fridge is kept clean and sanitised by the brand’s Hygiene FRESH+ technology, which filters out harmful bacteria and bad smells. With its use of folding shelves and plenty of hidden nooks and crannies, this fridge also maximises all of its storage space, making it an ideal pick for the whole family.

$5,499, available from BEST Denki

A jumbo oven

With a whopping capacity of 73 litres, Tecno’s TBO 7006, 7008 and 7010 Upsized Built-In Ovens offer more than enough space to cook for the whole family in one go. Despite their spaciousness, however, the ovens remain as compact as Tecno’s smaller options, allowing you to enjoy the large cooking space without crowding a small kitchen with bulky appliances. The ovens’ tempered glass door is also equipped with three layers of cool-touch technology, guaranteeing extra safety for the little ones.

From $768, available from Tecno

A flexible cooktop

Need more flexibility in your kitchen? V-ZUG’s CookTop Induction V6000 FullFlex gives you the freedom to position up to six pots and pans anywhere you like on the extensive cooking surface. The hob heats your food with precision by automatically detecting the position and size of the cookware. It also boasts a large, full-colour graphic display with an intuitive touch screen, giving you all of the information you need at a glance and keeping the smooth glass surface quick and easy to clean.

A smooth blender

Equipped with a powerful 800W motor, the SMEG BLF01 blenders come with a handy Smooth Start function, facilitating easy blending of different ingredients without hiccups. The blender’s stainless steel dual blades are detachable and easy to clean, while its four separate speed settings make it possible to achieve your desired consistency using gradual speed increments. The large 1.5-litre casing is entirely BPA-free and available in SMEG’s popular colour range, including pastel hues as well as bolder shades.

Words To Eat By

Ok, full disclosure: The first book listed below is my new cookbook. Yes, it’s cheeky of me to list it here and to write about myself, but I’m really proud of this book. I’m also extremely happy to give press to three friends—and now, fellow authors—who also have recently released cookbooks. I highly encourage any food/cooking collector to add these to their shelf.
