My Favorite Kitchen Appliances
The first thing I will admit – I am a total homebody. I would rather be cuddled on the couch or cooking in the kitchen than jet setting all over the world. With a busy full-time day job and four kids, that doesn’t really allow much time for travel anyway. So I try to make my home as inviting and comfortable as I can, and for me this starts in the kitchen! If you follow this blog at all, you know that I recently underwent a major kitchen renovation. I just love how light and airy my kitchen is now! When it came to appliances for the new kitchen, I wanted to save money wherever I could. And so where did I shop for my most-used kitchen appliances? eBay of course! In addition to designer bags, fashion, and jewelry, eBay is a wonderful resource for name-brand kitchen appliances. Brands such as Kitchen-Aid, Breville, Cuisinart, Keurig, and many more can be found on eBay. And if you know how to shop, you can save hundreds of dollars off of the manufacturers suggested price. I was able to find every appliance I wanted on eBay. Keep reading to find out what they are…
Breville Oracle Touch Espresso Machine
There is nothing better than having a warm cup of coffee or hot chocolate, dressed in your warmest pajamas, sitting by the fire. I live for days like this! My husband is a coffee and latte fanatic, and so when it comes to making the best café coffee he uses this Breville Oracle Touch espresso machine. No barista is needed with this mother of all espresso machines! Save almost $600 off the retail price of this machine by purchasing it on eBay. Before he invested in this machine we used this Breville Barista espresso machine, which makes an equally delicious latte, in my opinion. Both machines would make the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life!
When we don’t have a leisurely weekend morning to make our favorite latté, this Keurig® K-Café makes single serving espresso, café lattes, and regular brewed coffee. And it is compatible with standard K-Cups® so the possibilities are endless! This machine features an adjustable tray to fit every cup size including travel mugs up to 7.2” tall. Use the coffee shot to brew a concentrated shot of coffee. You can enjoy your latte or cappuccino hot or use the cold setting for cold frothed milk to make delicious and refreshing iced latte or cappuccino. And cleanup is easy as the frother is dishwasher safe. Save $60 by purchasing it on eBay!
Wusthof Classic Knife Set
While technically not an appliance, this Wusthof Classic knife set gets plenty of use. I was using old knives from my wedding registry for years before we moved into the new kitchen. They were so dull and hard to use! Now cutting and dicing is a breeze with this ultra sharp knife set. And I know because it is high-quality, it will last for years! As for other kitchen utensils, I store them in this Le Creuset utensil crock. The clean white crock blends in so well with my white kitchen, and it holds every utensil we use.
Breville ® Fast Slow Pro Pressure Cooker
If you don’t yet own a pressure cooker, you are truly missing out on such a versatile appliance! We use ours weekly for all the meals we make for our family. My husband loves everything by Breville, so he had to have this Breville pressure cooker. This pressure cooker is definitely a step up from the Instant Pot. This pressure cooker offers dozens of customizable cooking settings. You can control the precise temperature, pressure level (from 1.5 to 12 psi), and choose between auto quick, auto pulse or natural pressure release. Settings are included for vegetables, rice, soup, meat, bone-in meat, chili, stew, dessert and more. With our large family, it is nice to be able to cook bigger meals. I use it to make rice, chili, cabbage roll casserole, soups, and even lasagna! An this machine is not just a pressure cooker, as it also steams and sautés meats and vegetables too! But this isn’t the only pressure cooker you can find on eBay, as you can find a large variety of pressure cookers on the site.
Breville Smart Oven Air Convection Toaster Oven
A new kitchen deserves a new toaster oven! After seeing so many tasty air-fryer recipes, I decided I wanted to get one myself. I love the taste of fried foods, but I don’t love how unhealthy they are. An air fryer offers the promise of perfectly crisp fried food using very little oil. There are lots of air fryers on the market, but my husband and I wanted to get one with multiple functions. This is why we like the Breville Convection and Air Fryer Smart Oven. This versatile kitchen appliance does it all! It works as stand alone oven (where you can even road a 14 lb turkey), a toaster, an air-fryer, and even a dehydrator! Given this appliance does so many tasks, it really is worth the investment. It is the single most used appliance in our home. And it is a fine air fryer if I ever do say so! But there are also many nice stand-alone air fryers on the market and you can find thousands of them on eBay!
Juliska Berry and Thread Dinner Plates
I have always loved the classic design of Juliska dinnerware, but purchasing a complete set can be quite an investment. The iconic Berry and Thread line has always been my favorite. The Berry and Thread dinner plate is nice because it works for everyday dinnerware. And accessorizing this plate is so easy when it comes to decorating for the holidays too.
Thermador Star Sapphire Dishwasher
Yes, I really did buy my dishwasher (brand new) on eBay! I decided the new kitchen needed a paneled dishwasher (to keep it light and airy). Because Thermador dishwashers (which are really Bosch dishwashers) have such an excellent reputation, I decided to get this Thermador Star Sapphire dishwasher. It was delivered to my home via freight, and when my contractor was remodeling the kitchen he made a custom panel for it and installed it. This well-crafted appliance is easy to use, and my dishes always come out clean. And I saved over $700 by purchasing it on eBay!
Vitamix Professional Blender
My kids love it when I make them smoothies, and this professional Vitamix blender definitely does the job! I’ve actually had it for years, before we remodeled the kitchen. This blender on steroids is definitely built to last! Here my I am making a banana-mango smoothie, and blending it with ice was a breeze. And it will whip up some heavy cream in a snap! If you don’t need such a heavy duty blender, there are hundreds of less expensive Vitamix blenders you can find on eBay.
So when it comes to all your home decor and appliance finds, eBay really is a wonderful resource. You can find almost anything you want on eBay! And fast shipping combined with customer service will keep me shopping at eBay time and time again!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
