Best 8 Products You Must Have In Your Kitchen To Make Cooking A Breeze
It does not matter if you are a good cook or a bad cook – all that matters is if you love to eat food!
No matter what happens, we’ve got to answer the call of our stomach. If we are at home, there are only two things you can do – order delivery or make your own. But as responsible adults, it is time we get acquainted with our kitchen. After all, it is not a showroom once you move in.
To make it easy for you, here are the best eight products you must have in your kitchen to make cooking a breeze.
Kaching kaching – that is the sound a Thermomix a makes before you actually get it. At over $2,000, is it worth it?
The latest version is Thermomix® TM6, an all-in-one kitchen appliance that can run over 20 cooking functions!
Imagine having a robot chef that does all the chopping, stirring, and cooking for you. It reduces prep time and shortens the cooking duration, perfect for urban dwellers and working parents.
If you own one of these, you can cut a few items below off the list of things you need in your kitchen.
It can boil or simmer your soups, chop and mince, process nuts (to make peanut butter, maybe), blend, mill and cook rice, grind coffee, knead dough, whisk, grate, crush, juice and steam

Our lives have not been the same since the invention of the microwave.
We particularly like the Electrolux EMM2022MK Microwave Oven because it does all that we need with a price tag we are absolutely in love with.
Defrosting frozen food can happen in a jiffy with the Quick Defrost and Simple Defrost, making rock-solid frozen food ready for the frying pan in minutes.
With five power levels and in a sleek black exterior, it will work great and be eye candy in your kitchen.

If you are always in a rush, and you are craving to get your nutrients in the morning before you head out, maybe a portable blender is what you need.
We think the Deerma 400ML Portable Blender USB Rechargeable Electric Juicer Cup is perfect!
It creates no mess in the kitchen, you can just drop your frozen fruits from the freezer directly into this six-blade blender and it will crush it all, creating the best smoothie or ice-blended drink you need to power your day.
Price: $28 on Shopee
Everything on this list is to help you get food on the table fast – and this multi cooker will do just that.
Check out the Philips Multi-Cooker HD2145. Essentially a pressure cooker, it makes the best of soups, stews, and dalcha six times faster than a slow cooker would. Dump in what you need and it will all be cooked perfectly with accurate control of pressure and temperature.
Full-of-flavour meals can be served in under 45 minutes and you can even customise up to three programs for future use. However, the feature we love most is how you can add ingredients midway. In our busyness, we sometimes forget an essential ingredient that will spruce up the meal. You don’t have to eat your mistakes because unlike other pressure cookers, you can right your wrong.
Price: $369 from Philips Official Store
If you are not a baker, then swap your oven for an air fryer. This Mayer 3.2L Air Fryer MMAF80 is one of our top choices as it is affordable and uses air circulation technology to help fry food at a faster pace without the use of oil!
When not in use, there is an automatic shut off feature that saves electricity. It heats up to 210℃ and has a time control of up to 30 minutes. With a 3.2 litre capacity, you can prep fried fish, chips, and other ‘fried’ food in minutes without any oil splatters or added cholesterol!

We Singaporeans are not going to follow what BBC tells us about cooking rice – we will use rice cookers instead.
If you don’t have a rice cooker in your home, are you even Singaporean?
We don’t have to tell you much about rice cookers, except to know how many people you are feeding in your home. For small families, a small rice cooker will do. One thing great about the Tefal Mini RK5001 is that it has 12 cooking programs and a 24 hour keep warm setting. Soup, porridge, or claypot chicken rice, this gem can do it for you!
Price: $119 on Shopee
If you need anything diced, sliced, minced or made into sauce, food processors are a must-have for any efficient kitchen. If you cook a lot and love to experiment with all types of food, this gadget will do great in the kitchen.
There are many food processors for you to choose from in the market, but if you’d like to splurge on a good one, the KitchenAid 14 Cup Food Processor is amazing.
It is a multi-function food processor that can dice vegetables and fruits so perfectly, you might just check each one of them out. It is fitted with a powerful durable mother with high, low, and pulse speed options for different types of ingredients.

Automatic Soap Dispenser
You must be wondering, why an automatic soap dispenser?
While cooking, cutting, tasting, and everything in between, we can get our hands dirty and oily. If we were to reach out for the soap pump, it will be oily too.
That is why we think this aesthetic looking Xiaomi Mijia Automatic Soap Dispenser is a practical addition to your kitchen. Not just because it is ‘high tech’ but because it is practical not to spread grease and food residue everywhere in the kitchen area.
