Quick! Name some of the small appliances you couldn’t live without. Out loud. Ready? We’re hearing lots of air fryers, toasters, blenders. Those are some of our most-used items, too! But which air fryer will give you perfectly crisp Brussels sprouts? Which toaster will pop out bread that’s golden to your exact liking? And which blender will churn out the smoothest smoothies? Oh, and which small appliances are just unnecessary? We spent months testing, tasting, and debating. In the end, we’ve come up with 10 small appliances for our 2022 list of Kitchn Essentials.
These are the small appliances we think can help every home cook. Our list includes a new Instant Pot model, a toaster and a toaster oven, and our new favorite immersion blender.
