Christmas is a great time to invest in new kitchen gadgets for your home. From a new stand mixer to a cool coffee machine, these are our top kitchen gadgets for Christmas.
If you want a coffee machine for the coffee connoisseur, the Sage by Heston Blumenthal ‘Barista Express’ is designed to give you the perfect beans-to-cup coffee in under a minute. Featuring 18 grind settings, the Barista Express allows you to grind the beans right before extraction. While you’re testing out the best grind, you can warm your cups on the cup warmer or, for quicker heating, use the switch on the side to dispense hot water via the dedicated tap. The built-in milk frother lets you turn espresso into café lattes and cappuccino in seconds. With interchangeable filters and a choice of automatic or manual operation you can create authentic café style results in the comfort of your own home.
The KitchenAid Mixer has long been a covetable kitchen gadget, often handed down through the generations thanks to its durability and timeless style. Now the iconic mixer has been recreated as a Mini mixer, designed with a new generation of passionate bakers in mind, who are challenged with limited space and ‘smaller batch’ lifestyles. Offering the same power and performance as its larger role model, the Mini mixer is 20% smaller and 25% lighter with a 3.3 litre bowl. With ten optimized speeds, it’s powerful enough for nearly any task or recipe, whether you’re stirring wet and dry ingredients together, kneading bread dough or whipping cream for your Christmas pudding!
