For the people, nothing is more preferred than something which saves time. Also, the level of work is reduced and the time is also saved. Further, not just home appliances, electrical appliances are another add on advantage for they make life easy and better.

If you don’t believe it, let me give you a proper turnaround of time.

Let’s, start with the gas burner, remember the coal made cooking stove? Well, yeah you don’t want to go back to it. Also, the gas burner provides 4-5 inlets to enhance the cooking speed. This has been further improved with the incoming of the induction stove. Now even the hob or chimney requirement has been mitigated. The induction cooker provides swift and anywhere – anytime cooking, wherever you have the plug point. All the cooking is a button away.

There were days when we used to grind all masalas and chutneys on the stone and now we have the mixer grinder. You get all of it smoothly blended without any lumps. In fact they come with jars different for liquidizing and grinding. So, you go systematic and also clean with your work. The home appliance manufacturers come with improved features to get an edge over their competitor. So there is transparent lid, spill protector, detachable jars and what all. The list is endless but the pricing is extremely consumer friendly.

We even have the choppers. Count the number of dishes and vegetables you would be making over and the amount of cutting required. Hence, the chopper does the work for you. All you need to do is put the ingredient in the tray and I gets you finely chopped items. Be it potato, tomato or the onion or as the matter demands there are even hard substances which can be easily chopped.

The list of such appliances and cookware keeps going on. We have tea makers, rice cookers, idli makers, hand blender, so you name it and it will be delivered. There isn’t any escape.

All in all the consumer is at ease, because it got its servile at work!

Making Cooking Effortless

What is the solution for effortless cooking? Kitchen appliances! A kitchen without appliances is too much work. There are so many jobs that need to be done for making a dish ready. From chopping, grinding, blending, dough making, getting the spices ready and the list goes on. If it weren’t for these appliances, we would still be making dough with our hands or using the stone grinder! Horrifying as it sounds a lot of work is to be done if not for the technology.

There is nothing better than the appliances. For the cook in the house, especially women who work and also cook, appliances let them have a sigh of relief. With the day’s hard work and handling other household chores, kitchen work is another headache. Let them relax and take out time for the family.

Further, the material used to make the hand mixer is very durable. Even if I use it to blend the soup, it doesn’t crack or get fused. So amazing! For the joy of cooking and to keep it that way, kitchen appliances are simply a boon.

The mixers are also reasonably priced. A hand blender price ranges 1k-2k. There are blenders at a higher range also, all depends upon the needs and your pocket. As the price goes up the features keep adding on, but nothing more than 5k. Moreover, the quality is stable for all price ranges. Hence. It is affordable by all and doesn’t even pinch.

KITCHEN CHIMNEYS: KNOW IT ALL

How many of us would think of chimney to be important? Let me remind you through this blog that Kitchen chimney is a relevant part. A cookhouse needs furnace to breathe. A kitchenette needs to get all the fumes out, and you can’t simply rely on an exhaust fan. Here comes the ventilator into play.

Indian food is full of tadkas, spices, oil and chilies, which leads to lot of smokes and fumes in the kitchen. It is important to get rid of the same otherwise we could choke on it and the odor then travels throughout the house, coughing noise is all that we hear then. Moreover, these are sticky effluviums. So if you don’t filter the air, it would surely cling to the wood, tiles and don’t forget the ash marks on the wall. This would in fact add to the cost, so why not simply install a furnace?

We have a problem with the looks of the Kitchen Chimney, I believe it has been sorted out now. We have glass panels, designer plastics and even the hobs come in style. In fact these breathers have air regulation levels and even light panels. I came across one at Bajaj, which had corner lighting to give it an edgy look. So why not ask your interior designer to pick one for you while designing the kitchen.

I think the major dilemma could be the filtration system and the cleaning. Recently they have come up with a separate oil collector, so scrubbing can take a backseat. Speedy filtration has been adopted by many manufacturers and there has been improvement in after sale services too in the service market.

Another thing to make sure of is the size of the vent. A small exhaust won’t be useful in a huge kitchen. You have to make certain that it is bought as per the kitchen space. Further, for an open cook room a huge one would be a waste of money.  So make the deal wisely!

The pricing of the kitchen exhausts are such that it is feasible for the hoi polloi. Since, it has become a necessity now, especially for urban India. It’s your budget and your booty call. As the funnel is something which can’t be changed easily and is usually done for long term purposes, for many of us it’s an investment, hence there is no harm to be doubly sure and look for options.

The smokeshaft does create a level of noise, but there are models which work with less buzz. Also the electricity consumption of the furnace is low and equivalent to a normal kitchen appliance. Still, do check as it can vary from one brand to another.

I hope this would be of help to you. Another advice would be to search online before hitting the market, so that you are aware of the purchase and features. Plus, you get to know what’s new and have a competitive price. If you are getting your interiors done, as the designer to assist you in the same, as they have a lot of knowledge. Happy shopping!

Electric Cookers Vs Gas Cookers Which One is better?

Civilization has begun with the discovery of fire. Since that time, it was the predominant way to cook food and to warm ourselves. But now with the progression of technology, men have discovered newer means to cook food in faster ways and in less hassle manners. They have also introduced different and modern cookers to prepare food in very short span of time. If you enter into a house, you will definitely find two major types of cookers in an apartment and they are mainly electric cooker and gas cookers.

Select the convenient one—the electric one

Both are very popular and they are very safe and that is why they are equally popular few times ago. But now, people are showing their huge interest in using modernized electric cookers. They are mostly preferred for their quick arrangement and for the personal purposes. They take less time and prepare more delicious foods. Generally, gas cookers are preferred by the professional Chefs as they can adjust the flame. The gas is administered by the Gas company and they will cost you monthly bill too as Gas is considered to be utility as well.

Electric gas cookers can be used anywhere if any option of electricity is available. But in the case of gas cookers one has to make several arrangements to arrange the entire set up and it needs more space than the electric ones. For these logical reasons usage of these cookers are now increasing rapidly.
