Three Of The Most Overlooked Small Kitchen Appliances
You would not be able to argue that the 3 most overlooked small appliances in the kitchen are:
1. Ice cream maker
2. A popcorn machine
3. Grain Mill
Although you might be intending to purchase one of these, you need to know what to expect. The Internet is a valuable resource even if you decide to purchase you appliance from a real store, rather than online. Online research of appliances you're interested in will help you to discover what other customers have to say about the appliance. Naturally, online shopping certainly has its advantages. To help you get started, check out the following three small kitchen appliances:
1. The Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor
This is the ICE-50BC, only better. One advantage of the newer model is that the drive system is now underneath the bowl, rather than on the drive arm as it was in the ICE-50BC model. Therefore, the Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor bears a striking resemblance to the more expensive Lello machine. Another improvement is that it comes with a new ice cream paddle as well as a gelato paddle. You are basically getting a 2-for-1 deal.
That being said there are some disadvantages you might wish to consider. For one thing, the motor that operates the paddles makes an excessive amount of noise. While some might find this acceptable, others do not.
Other than the problem of removing the paddles from the bowl, clean-up is a breeze with this model. Also, you will need to take care that you do not lose or break any of the parts, because finding replacements is not going to be easy. Exercise care with the individual parts to avoid having a replacement problem.
2. Great Northern Popcorn Machine
There is more to the Great Northern Popcorn Machine than initially meets the eye. The pre-packaged popcorn packs are also rather impressive. In fact, they claim that the popcorn tastes the same as movie theater popcorn, and many satisfied customers would agree. Of course, not all of the kernels will actually pop, but that is a common factor no matter how you make your popcorn, or what machine you use.
A limited amount of space above the kettle means that you need to exercise some caution to prevent burning yourself. Cleaning the unit is not much fun, because you have to ensure that the kettle is not immersed in the water. This machine takes up quite a bit of room, so space might be a problem. Although you might be inclined to make your own popcorn recipes, you are likely to be disappointed with the results, so it's best to stick to the prepackaged mix.
3. The Lequip Nutrimill Grain Mill
The Lequip Nutrimill Grain Mill has been advertised a lot, and much has been said about the many settings available, such as that the machine is capable of handling stopping and starting. However, you might well find that the improved range of settings is not such a big deal after all.
Customer opinions about this appliance vary. It is undeniable that this machine is very well made, it is a powerful machine, and it is fast. A drawback however is that it makes a considerable mess when used. Some will reach impossible to clean parts of the appliance, which could no doubt cause problems with operation some time down the line.
