With inspiration from cookery shows from celebrity Masterchef, The Great British Bake Off and Jamie’s 5 ingredients, it’s easy to say they make cooking look easy. And it can be. Packed with the latest kitchen appliances and gadgets you can recreate these dishes at home by using the clever features in kitchen appliances.

Our Ream Kitchen designers give you the lowdown on the 5 best appliances which can enhance your culinary experience with friends and family.

1. Keep your ingredient delicious

Lara, Ream Kitchen Designer, comments that “fresh, seasonal ingredients are a staple in any kitchen. With the latest innovations from appliance manufacturers, nutritious fruit and vegetables can be stored up to three times as long ensuring busy families always have fresh food”.

As a result, delicate fruits and vegetables such as avocados, berries and leafy greens can be kept fresh and vibrant. Fish and meat can also thrive from the clever cooling technology which uses sensors to monitor the temperature within the fridge or freezer to keep to an optimum temperature.

The use of storage boxes and easy to reach containers makes it easier to get to your fresh vegetables, meat and cheese quicker and pack food back conveniently.

2. Full Steam Ahead

Enjoy healthy cooking, with all the nutrients and flavour from a steam oven. With the popularity of the Body Coach and clean-eating let your steam oven do all the hard work without drying out your food. Ovens can combine steam with other conventional cooking methods. Dennis, Ream’s Kitchen Designer says that “steam ovens are about much more than just steaming vegetables or fish. You can use them for cooking eggs, defrosting items, sterilising bottles, keeping food warm, cooking roasts, baking and much more.”

Steam ovens promote healthier cooking because:

Using steam requires less oil and salt, which reduces the fat content and retains the texture and colour of your food.

  • The flavour and texture are unmatched. While conventional ovens dry out food, steam ovens retain the delicious juices and flavours in your food.
  • All types of food can be cooked together without transferring any flavours. The result is your food stays succulent and nutritious.

3. Hobs with inbuilt extractors

Enjoy uninterrupted conversations with family and friends whilst cooking and not be disturbed by loud extractors. Create the wow factor with the new inbuilt hobs with an extractor.

For a kitchen which features a hob in an island, there is no need to bump your head on your overhead extractor. It’s a popular kitchen design which has made it possible for an integrated cooker with extraction inbuilt in the hob. Matt, Ream’s Kitchen designer says “this allows kitchen designers more freedom to place the ComboHob without restriction in a kitchen wherever you want to.”

4. Hot tap

The most sought-after kitchen appliance on Houzz 2017 is a boiling/hot tap is loved by all, even Kirsty Allsopp. Fuelled by the sleek, clutter-free, Scandinavian style, the Hot Tap offers time-saving cups of tea and coffee almost instantly.

Lara says, “for most open-plan kitchens where families want contemporary style and convenience, a hot tap is a must. It’s become more affordable too.”

For anyone in doubt, what the Great British Bake Off where they are fitted on all the baker's kitchen counters. The new Quooker Flex is the latest innovation; a boiling-water tap, equipped with a flexible pull out hose for hot, cold and filtered cold water. A first of its kind. This makes it very easy to rinse and clean at any point in the sink. Hot tap is extremely safe and great for cooking poached Salmon.

5. Wash the dishes in-style

End the day as a professional chef with the award-winning ComfortLift dishwasher. The innovative design features a clever new function which by the lower dish drawer can be glided upward and locked into place, turning the act of emptying and refilling the dishwasher into child’s play.

It eliminates bending down and grabbing pots and pans out of the dishwasher. You can now stack the dishwasher more effectively and unload more efficiently.
