With the right home appliances, you can easily create professional-level meals with ease.
Why Invest in Quality Kitchen Appliances?
Investing in high-quality kitchen appliances is a fantastic way to improve your cooking skills. Not only will you be able to prepare meals more efficiently and quickly, but you will also be able to do so with greater precision and control.
Simply having quality kitchen appliances in your home can also inspire creativity and experimentation in the kitchen, giving you the opportunity to try out new recipes and techniques.
The Best Appliances for Home Chefs
From ovens and cooktops to refrigerators, here are some of the best appliances for aspiring home chefs.
Choosing the right range for your kitchen is vital to improving your cooking skills. A few of our top choices for aspiring home chefs include:
- Kitchenaid 5 Burner Dual Fuel Double Oven Convection Range - This range features a steam rack, five burners, an EasyConvect™ Conversion System, and so much more.
- LG Smart ProBake Convection® InstaView® Gas Slide-In Range with Air Fry - This range truly features it all. With features like LG InstaView® allowing you to see inside without opening the door, Air Fry, convection cooking, and the UltraHeat™ 20K BTU Power Burner, rapidly heat to boil quickly or turn down to simmer, you will be impressing guests in no time.
- GE Profile Smart Gas Double Oven Convection Fingerprint Resistant Range - This range features an edge-to-edge cooktop, a tri-ring burner, true convection settings, and more.
Home kitchens with cooktops are perfect for home chefs. Choosing a cooktop that offers professional-level features can make all the difference in your meal results. Some of our favorite cooktops include:
- Thermador CIT36YWBB Freedom® Induction Cooktop - This induction cooktop offers the largest cooking surface on the market and allows you to easily change the temperature setting with its MyZone® feature.
- Samsung 36" Smart Gas Cooktop with 22K BTU Dual Power Burner - This cooktop offers precision control, a wok grate, connected cooking via Bluetooth, and much more.
- Thermador PCG486WD Gas Rangetop - Among other features, we love the ExtraLow® burners this cooktop features that make it easy to perfectly simmer meals without burning.
It is important to choose a quality wall oven that will leave you with professional results every time you cook.
Double wall ovens are great for home chefs that often cook large meals. They provide the opportunity to cook two things at once or keep a side dish warm while finishing the main entrée.
Our top choices for quality wall ovens include:
- Kitchenaid 30" Double Wall Oven with Even-Heat™ True Convection - This double wall oven features True Convection and internal temperature probes that allow you to accurately check food temperature without opening the oven door.
- GE 30" Smart Built-In Self-Clean Single Wall Oven with Never-Scrub Racks - This oven's never-scrub racks ensure your oven is easy to clean saving you time and avoiding that burnt food taste.
Having a quality dishwasher in the home is essential for any aspiring home chef. A quality dishwasher ensures that your dishes come out clean and saves time allowing you to focus on what you love most, cooking.
Our favorite dishwashers include:
- Kitchenaid Two-Rack Dishwasher in PrintShield™ Finish with ProWash™ Cycle - This dishwasher uses a triple filtration system, is Energy Star® Certified, and has various wash cycles to meet any load's needs.
- Thermador DWHD560CFP Dishwasher - This dishwasher offers precision cleaning and a signature Chef s Tool Drawer®.
A refrigerator might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of leveling up your cooking game, but the right refrigerator can make all the difference in improving your meals.
There are several smart refrigerators on the market today that can help level up your meals. With features such as expiration date tracking and easy grocery list planning, you can avoid having to swap in substitutes due to poor planning.
Several new refrigerator models also have options to help keep your food fresh for longer, saving you money.
