With SO many small kitchen appliances on the market, it’s hard to know what’s truly worth buying versus what’ll just end up creating clutter and collecting dust. After trying multiple gadgets, here are the best kitchen appliances I love and can’t live without.

Hip Tip: We’re sharing even more product recommendations here!

1. KitchenAid Professional Mixer

The KitchenAid Professional Mixer gives us an extra hand in the kitchen and allows us to mix, knead, and whip ingredients with ease! It is great for stirring wet and dry ingredients together, kneading dough, or even for whipping heavy cream. With ten different speed settings, we can mix dough for nine dozen cookies, four loaves of bread, or seven pounds of mashed potatoes in a single batch! It’s a must-have in our kitchens!

2. Air Fryer

We love our Air Fryers! One of the best things about an air fryer is that we can “fry” foods with very little oil to get that delicious crispy fried texture on food as we’d get in a conventional oven – only with much faster cook times! That’s because air fryers cook by circulating hot air! Plus, there’s no waiting for the fryer to pre-heat or the machine to come to pressure as we would with a pressure cooker.

From frying awesome bacon to cooking fresh veggies quickly, read our 10 reasons to fall in love with air fryers!

3. Instant Pot

If you’ve crossed over into Instant Pot heaven like we have, you already know what a lifesaver this pressure cooker is on busy nights. Not only does an Instant Pot speed up cooking by 2-6 times, but it uses up to 70% less energy and produces nutritious healthy food in a convenient and consistent fashion.

There are many Instant Pot varieties, sizes, and models, but all of them have multiple settings that can act as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and more. Plus, there are lots of Instant Pot hacks that will make your life a lot easier – not to mention tons of yummy recipe ideas!

4. Vitamix Explorian Blender

While a Vitamix Explorian Blender is on the pricier side of small appliances, it’s an awesome investment since we enjoy making smoothies, eating soups, drinking fruit juices, or indulging in frozen treats.

This awesome blender has a whopping 10 speeds (including a pulse feature) and is perfect for grinding nuts and coffee beans, pureeing hot soups, mixing batters and dough, and even creating chilled desserts in seconds! Yes, please!

5. Ninja Coffee Bar

If you’re one of those people that “drinks the coffee, then does all the things,” you’ll love the Ninja Coffee Bar. This brewer has Thermal Flavor Extraction, which unlocks the full flavor potential of our coffee using automated controls for temperature calibration, pre-infusion, and coffee saturation.

It brews concentrated coffee that can be used to make espresso-style drinks like lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and more – all without having to use any other machine! The Ninja Coffee Bar can also pause at any point while brewing, which is great for those times when we really need a cup of coffee but don’t have the time or patience to wait for a whole carafe to brew. This coffee-making gadget is a must-have in our kitchens!
