Do You Have These Items In Your Kitchen?

Bread Machine

There’s really nothing in the world quite like fresh bread. The best part? It’s even easier to make than you think it is. All it takes is a little bit of bread machine yeast, bread flour, water, sugar, and salt — and a bit of time in the bread machine — and you’re off to the races!

Bread machines don’t take up a lot of space, and making a loaf of fresh bread only takes a couple of hours, most of which is the machine doing the work after you’ve added the ingredients. The quality of the bread you end up with is so much better than what you get from the grocery store and the smell of bread baking in your apartment is sure to put a smile on your face. 

Panini Press

What better way to put a loaf of bread to use than with a panini press? This helpful kitchen gadget is perfect because it’s small, but there’s a lot you can do with it. With just a little bit of extra effort, it can turn a normal sandwich into a masterpiece.

Believe us when we say that you’ll be eating more sandwiches when you bake your own bread, and whether it’s a ham and cheese sandwich, a pastrami and mustard sandwich, or even a peanut butter and jelly, everything’s better when you throw it in the panini press.

Coffee Maker

How much money do you spend each week getting coffee before work? Even at a couple bucks a time, that’s about $60 a month — at minimum! Add in tips, the days you need larger drinks, and the times that you get a pastry, and that’s a lot of money. Instead, why not make a delicious cup of coffee at home? 

There are plenty of devices ranging from french presses to espresso machines to traditional drip coffee makers, so there’s something for every budget. Spend a bit of time perfecting your at-home coffee making and you’ll find that it’s as good as, or even better than, what you got at the coffee shop. And if you’re making your own bread, you can make a piece of cinnamon-sugar toast instead of grabbing the blueberry muffin while you’re at the coffee shop. It’s a win/win!
