Or, if you want to make it even easier on yourself, simply click the link and purchase each of the appliances directly from this article. Let’s get started with my best appliances 2021 list!
Life in the kitchen is so much easier with a good quality dishwasher. This is not the appliance to go with the cheapest option; a quality dishwasher will have your dishes sparklingly clean and dry with minimum effort by you.
The 88.4 x 64.5 x 64.5cm dishwasher from Midea is a 14 place setting dishwasher which is freestanding, so it can be installed independently from your kitchen bench if need be. It comes with a 4.5 star WELS rating, so it’s efficient on water usage and also has a 3 year warranty for peace of mind.
2. Air Fryer
Read any kitchen appliance reviews and you will note that air fryers are all the rage in 2021. Due to their ability to fry food with the smallest amounts of oil, people are loving the ability to cook their favourite foods such as fries, crispy chicken and fried fish in a healthier way.
With this air fryer from Philips there’s no need for pre heating; just pop your ingredients straight in. It’s also multi functional as not only does it fry but this compact appliance can also grill, bake and even roast.
It’s so easy to clean too as the removable non stick coated drawer and the food basket are dishwasher safe.
Do you love cooking so much that you find yourself running out of space in your oven? Or do you want to bake and roast at the same time? A small bench top oven is just what you need.
This 2400 W Smart Counter Top Oven by Breville has all the features of your traditional oven and will have you whipping up dinner and dessert at the same time. Not only is this a traditional conventional oven, but it also can slow cook too. Other features include a keep warm function after slow cooking and 10 pre set cooking functions such as toasting, grilling, pizza, cookies and reheat.
And being made by Breville (one of the top 10 kitchen appliance brands), you know your getting a quality product.
If you love the taste of freshly squeezed juice, then you definitely need to get yourself a juicer! There is nothing better than a fresh juice drink on a hot summer’s day. Not to mention it’s an easy way to get the kids to eat their daily intake of fruit and vegetables!
The Sunbeam Double Sieve Juicer Pro features a double sieve which allows you to get the maximum juice out of your fruit and veggies, and the wide fruit chute means you don’t need to chop up your fruit and veggies – just pop it in whole, and the juicer does the rest. It also has 2 different speeds for different types of products – ‘Soft and Squeezy’ and ‘Hard and Crunchy’.
A blender is a must-have for any kitchen. You can use it to make so many different recipes. From smoothies to soups, to butter and soy milk, the possibilities are (almost) endless!
The Boss Blender by Breville really is ‘the boss’. It features a high velocity blade that will blend your ingredients into tiny particles – in fact, 50% smaller particles compared to other blenders.
The LCD display is super handy as it shows the speed settings, pre-programmed settings and also includes a pause button. This Breville blender has a blending action that is designed to return maximum nutrients with tests showing that a smoothie made in the Boss Blender has 24% more Vitamin C than another leading blender.
6. Slow Cooker
The Breville Fast Slow Pro Cooker is a multicooker with sensors on the top and bottom of the unit which monitors the ingredients and allows for more accurate temperature and pressure control.
The interactive LCD screen contains a menu which shows the most popular slow and pressure cooked foods and automatically adjusts the temperature, time and pressure between slow and pressure cooking.
With 8 pressure levels, the LCD will tell you when it’s building pressure, cooking and using the hands-free steam release. The Fast Slow Cooker allows you to slow cook, pressure cook, steam, reduce, saute and sear at the touch of a button.
7. Ice Cream Maker
Having an ice cream maker at home not only saves you money (no more expensive ice cream outings!), it also lets you make healthy and fresh desserts in the time it takes to drive to the ice cream parlour.
The Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker is a simple machine that makes ice cream, frozen yogurt and sorbet in 20 minutes or less. Choose your flavors, add them to the bowl, press the on button, and away you go. The machine does the rest for you. With a large 1.5 litres capacity, you’ll make enough for the whole family…with leftovers for that midnight snack.
8. Deep Fryer
If you love the idea of being able to freshly fry your own fish and chips at home, make delicious snacks that are perfect for parties and entertaining, or make churros for the kids, a deep fryer is one of the best multi purpose kitchen appliance options out there in my opinion.
The Kambrook KDF560BSS Deep Fryer has a 4 Litre oil capacity and comes in a compact design to make sure it doesn’t take up too much space in your home. All the important features are there from cool touch handles, included frying basked, large viewing window on top (essential for seeing how those fries are coming along!). It also has a stylish stainless steel exterior.
So if you love freshly made snacks, this is definitely one of my must have kitchen appliances 2021.
9. Pressure Cooker
Cut down on cooking times by using a pressure cooker. In case you didn’t know, a pressure cooker works by building up a high pressure inside a sealed pot of steam. The high pressure helps the food cook faster. You probably see these used a lot on cooking shows as it saves the chef an immense amount of cooking time.
The Philips Premium All In One Cooker is one of the best on the market. This cooker allows you to pressure cook, slow cook or multi-cook. The dual sensor makes for better cooking results as it controls the temperature accurately, while ‘add ingredient’ function allows you to add ingredients midway through the pressure cook.
There is also a sauté/sear and sauce thickening function, along with an automatic keep warm function for up to 12 hours and reheat function.
10. Smoothie Blender
The smoothie blender is a convenient way to make healthy and nutritious drinks for on-the-go. They are a great way to boost your daily intake of fruit and vegetables, in a simple and tasty manner.
With the NutriBullet 1200W Series Blender, you get a super powerful blender that can blitz through ice, veggies and fruit to blend the perfect smoothie every time. Take advantage of the pre-programmed “auto blast” setting that powers down the motor automatically for optimum usage and nutrition. There are two included cups for drinking on the go plus a stainless steel one to keep your drinks or shakes cool.
If you’re short on space, a mini blender like the Nutribullet is one of my best kitchen appliances 2021 Australia has because you can also use it for small-scale blending, too. I use my nutribullet to mix small quantities of pancake batter, dips and more! It’s no wonder this is on the top 10 kitchen appliances list for so many Australians!
11. Home Coffee Machine
Don’t feel awake until you’ve had your morning coffee? With a home coffee machine you can satisfy your craving for a flat white, cappuccino, espresso or latte anytime. This is one of the must-have designer kitchen appliances for the coffee lover.
The DeLonghi Magnifica S Fully Automatic Coffee Machine is the perfect addition to your kitchen. It has all the features of a full sized coffee machine, but in a compact design. It has a grinder, a frother and programmable water hardness. You can use either coffee beans or ground coffee in this machine, and you can prepare 2 cups with a single brewing.
The integrated coffee grinder has 13 adjustable settings, and it’s silent, so it’s great for when you are up early while the rest of the house sleeps in. It’s easy to maintain due to the auto-programmes for rinsing and decalcification, and the removable drip tray is dishwasher safe.
12. Food Processor
A food processor is like having 10 kitchen utensils in a machine. They can do almost anything related to food preparation. They can slice, peel, mix, knead, zest, grate, chop, shred, puree, grind and emulsify. They are the must-have kitchen appliance if you want to make your life in the kitchen easier.
The Kitchen Wizz by Breville can do everything. The 8 cup bowl capacity has two versatile feed chute size options, and 2 speeds, including pulse. The four blades can process tough cuts of meat, the adjustable slicer can slice from 0.3mm thin to 8.0mm thick, and the dough blade means no more mixing and kneading dough on the bench. It can even peel up to 7 potatoes in 30 seconds! Imagine how much time The Kitchen Wizz can save you with your food prep!
13. Rice Cooker
Another kitchen staple is the rice cooker. With one of these, you no longer have to worry about burning the rice to the bottom of the saucepan. Or was that just me? A rice cooker gives you perfectly cooked rice, every time.
The Rice Box Cooker by Breville is the ultimate in rice cookers. It’s not only a rice cooker, it’s a steamer as well! On top of making ‘normal’ rice, it can also make steamed rice, sushi, crispy rice, porridge, soup and congee. No matter which type of rice you use, the Smart Rice Cooker automatically adjusts the temperature throughout the various cooking stages, And with a huge 10 cup capacity, you’ll have loads of perfect fluffy rice in no time at all. Other functions include fast cook, reheat and automatic keep warm.
14. Portable BBQ
The portable BBQ is the convenient way to have a BBQ without taking up a lot of space. Perfect for small areas such as balconies, the portable BBQ is becoming one of the most popular outdoor kitchen appliances. You can also easily take them camping or to the beach, due to their lightweight and compact nature.
The Gasmate Voyager Portable BBQ is a great example of a portable BBQ. To setup, just fold out the legs and attach to the gas cylinder. The stainless steel burner delivers 12MJ/h of heat, making it quite efficient. It’s also compatible to a caravan LPG bayonet. To top it off, the cast iron grill and plate has a cooking area of 1600cm2, which means you can fit a lot of sausages on it!
15. Cold Pressed Juicer
With a cold pressed juicer you get 100% of the vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and nutrients but it does have a short shelf life which is why you’d benefit from having your own cold pressed juice at home.
A great entry-level juicer is the Biochef Synergy Slow Juicer. With its quiet operation and easy to clean parts, it makes juicing effortless and easy. It comes with a juice outlet cap, pulp storage cap and 2 different sized juicing strainers. It is made from quality BPA-free materials and has a recipe book.
16. Espresso Machine
Considered one of the luxury kitchen appliances, the espresso machine is a high-end machine that caters to a specific breed of coffee lovers – the espresso lover.
The Breville Barista Express Espresso Machine takes fresh beans and turns it into an espresso in under a minute. The 18 adjustable grind settings, interchangeable filters, dosage control and choice of automatic or manual operation lets you make a café style espresso at home in less time than it takes to spell your name out to a barista.
17. Coffee Grinder
A lot of coffee machines have built-in grinders for coffee beans, but if you don’t have a coffee machine, what do you do? You buy a coffee grinder, of course. A coffee grinder is easy to use – fill the hopper, choose your grind size, and off you go.
This Sunbeam Cafe Series coffee grinder is my recommended type of coffee grinder for anyone looking for the best kitchen appliances Australia has to offer. It’s a burr grinder, which means you can control how coarse the grind is plus the ultimate in freshness for the best tasting coffee when you want it, in your own home. Although I don’t drink coffee myself, my friends who visit and drink coffee tell me they are so grateful for the coffee grinder I recently bought!
18. Vacuum Sealer
Next on my list of best appliances for kitchen is a vacuum sealer – and if you’re wondering why one of those would be on my best cooking appliances 2021, read on! The vacuum sealer has long been seen as an industrial kitchen appliances – but it’s now being recognised as adding value to the domestic kitchen.
A vacuum sealer is a great way to keep your food fresh and reduce food waste. A vacuum sealer can keep your food fresh up to 5 times longer than a regular zip lock bag by removing the air in the package. And you’re not limited to sealing food; you can seal important papers to protect from water damage, or even seal matches to keep dry while camping.
The Geryon Vacuum Sealer removes air from specially made bags and create a commercial quality vacuum. There’s a built in cutter design which means you can make a customised bag quickly and easily, and there are two different sealing modes depending on the type of food you want to seal. Best of all, cleaning these machines can be tricky, but with this model you can remove the top lid, making cleaning a breeze.
If you love to cook in bulk and freeze food for later, or just want to get the maximum goodness from your food, a vacuum sealer is definitely one of my must have kitchen appliances 2021.
19. Stick Blender
The stick blender is known as the swiss army knife of the kitchen. Why? Because it can blend, mash, chop and slice! I bet even MacGyver has one of these in his kitchen. Cut your food prep time down by using a stick blender, and you’ll have more time to…watch MacGyver reruns.
A perfect example is the Breville The Control Grip Stick Blender. This wonderful mini food processor and stick blender in one will save space in your kitchen and is super easy to use – making it one of my best kitchen cooking appliances. The bell shaped base of the stick blender reduces suction and blends more efficiently, and there’s a variable speed control with 15 different settings.
Other features of this handy device include a non scratch blade guard, included wire whisk for perfect egg whites, and compact storage – the chopper bowl fits inside the jug to save on space.
The multiple functions of a stick blender makes it a great addition to any kitchen and a must for any list of kitchen appliances that are worth having.
20. Bread Maker
There is nothing quite like waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning. A bread maker for the home is the best thing since sliced bread. There are endless possibilities on what type of breads you can create, and with a bread maker, it’s all at the touch of a button.
The Custom Loaf Pro Bread maker by Breville calculates the correct temperature and baking time when you make your selection using the ‘turn and confirm’ dial. You can program it to add fruits, nuts and jams at a certain time, and using the 13 hour delay start timer, you can select when you want the bread to ready, all via the smart LCD screen. There are manual and automatic programs included, and 9 custom settings so you can save your own recipes. The unique kneading blade mixes the ingredients, then collapses so it’s not stuck in the middle of the loaf, maximising the loaf slices and making it easier to remove from the pan.
