Lighten the Load: Four Kitchen Appliances to Make Your Life Easier

In an increasingly hectic world, time comes at a premium in most of our lives. In the spirit of time conservation, therefore, it’s always useful to find kitchen appliances that make our lives just that little bit simpler. Here we take a look at four kitchen appliances that could help lighten the load and make things just that little bit more efficient.

1.            Built-in dishwasher

At the end of a long day at work, followed by a delicious dinner, the last thing that any of us wants is to have to spend hours doing the washing up. One night without doing the washing up after dinner can however, see the mess in your kitchen quickly get out of hand.

Thankfully, built-in dishwashers are the perfect solution to your cleaning conundrum. With enough capacity to house the remnants of a dinner party, today’s dishwashers are extremely energy efficient and run with nothing more than a quiet purr, making your life that little bit easier, as you can simply put the machine on before bed and wake up to a set of clean dishes.   

2.            Chimney hood

Whether you just cook the odd stir fry or frequently find yourself flambĂ©ing ingredients that are altogether more exotic, a small amount of smoke in the kitchen is an inevitable part of culinary life. While we often think nothing of this smoke, over a matter of weeks, the residue from the smoke can collect on our windows, making them increasingly dirty and in desperate need of a clean – creating extra and unnecessary work.

Investing in a chimney hood is an extremely wise move and could save you hours of cleaning with just the flick of a switch. The extraction capacity of chimney hoods gets rid of excess, dirty smoke in the kitchen, minimising residue build up on your windows and leaving you more time to think about the important things, like what you’re going to make for dessert!

3.            Coffee maker

Everyone loves a good cup of coffee, but recreating the sumptuous taste of the cup we get in our favourite coffee shop, at home, is not always as straightforward as we would like. Instant coffee is a perennial disappointment, while hand grinders are cumbersome, awkward and require too much effort.

A built-in coffee maker may seem like an extravagant investment, but Betta Living kitchen appliances offer an affordable solution. For a few hundred pounds, Betta Living’s built-in coffee maker offers a compact means of making coffee from freshly ground beans, making it an absolute must for any coffee aficionado who wants to be able to make high quality coffee and cappuccinos from the comfort of their own home.  

4.            Wine cooler

Unless you’re fortunate enough to have your own wine cellar, one problem that affects all wine lovers is a lack of space to chill your wine selection. It’s always good to keep a few nice bottles of wine in the house, just in case an impromptu entertaining opportunity should present itself. Instead of keeping your wine in boxes in the corner of the kitchen and having to super-chill it at a moment’s notice, a wine cooler provides an effective solution that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional.

For less than a few hundred pounds, it’s possible to purchase a wine cooler that is capable of housing over 50 bottles of wine. While a wine cooler solves your chilling problem, it also looks great, and their LED display enables you to peruse your selection with ease, making it easy to pick just the right bottle for the right occasion.  

Efficient living

Whether you’re an avid wine drinker, a regular coffee consumer or a budding culinary genius, there are all manner of items that can help to make your kitchen experience that little bit more efficient. While these gadgets may once have been the preserve of those with high levels of disposable income, Betta Living kitchen appliances look great and are extremely cost effective. Efficient living is a lot closer than you might think.
