by Sanjeev Kapoor

A kitchen is the most important space in a house. Here are 5 must have appliances that make life easier and your food tastier!

Microwave ovens – It is literally the era of microwave cooking. For something that was discovered accidently the microwave has evolved into one of the most essential cooking appliances. Heat, thaw, bake or grill food all in a matter of minutes and in a much healthier way!

Steamers – The process of steaming food has long been employed by chefs across the world because of the several benefits that it has. Electric steamers work beautifully with a theory as simple as it sounds – use vapors or steam to cook all kind of food. The best part about this is that it makes food much healthier and also retains the original colour of the food.

Slow Cookers – Fragrant curries, perfectly cooked veggies, meat that falls off the bone and the most succulent braises – a slow cooker gives you all of these and more. It is the best, most convenient and time efficient way to make one pot meals because all you need to do is throw in your ingredients and let the cooker work its magic.

Induction Stoves – These are not just more compact and much safer than your conventional gas stove, stoves with induction cooktops are also highly energy efficient.  They use 90 percent of the energy produced, compared to only 65 percent for an electric range and 55 percent for a gas range. Plus no burned fingers, since the cooktop never really gets hot!

Gas oven Tandoors – This one is giving a microwave tough competition. Economic, multipurpose and fuss free gas oven tandoor is a must have appliance. A fabulous, very useful combination of a gas, oven and a tandoor this brilliant appliance is suited for grilling kababs, tikkas and roasts and also baking cakes and cookies all on your gas top.
