Let’s be honest here, who doesn’t rely on a morning coffee or cup of tea? We certainly would be lost without our kettle, so it’s only natural that we put it on our list of kitchen essentials. It’s also multi-functional so even those who don’t drink hot drinks will require the use of a kettle at some point.

This is one of the kitchen appliances that are pretty much the one that you must have in your house, otherwise you would have nowhere to store the items of food that need to be kept chilled. The same applies for the freezer, keeps items at a certain temperature so that they don’t spoil.


A toaster is an essential kitchen appliance because, well, who doesn’t like toast? Or crumpets? Or toasted tea cakes? Maybe pop tarts are your thing? Whatever toasted goodies you love, you would be lost without a toaster.


We all have those days where you just can’t be bothered cooking anything, and the only thing you want to do is shove something in the microwave for 2 minutes and then scoff it down.
