Technology is revolutionising the way we do things and that includes in the kitchen where a wealth of must-have gadgets and appliances are the making life easier for home cooks. Here are just a few of the latest must-haves.

The Sunbeam Mix Master Compact Pro

At the heart of any selection of must-have kitchen appliances is a good mixer. Enter the Sunbeam Mix Master Compact Pro which makes it easier than ever to mix anything from batter to sauces.

The appliance’s powerful 400 watt motor ensures it can deal with any batter mixture, no matter the thickness. Ten speed settings ensure that delicate recipes can be handled with ease. The Sunbeam Mix Master Compact Pro is available at Spotlight.

The Tefal Toast and Egg

It is also remarkably easy to maintain. The appliance has a high lift facility, and a crumb tray that ensures no time is wasted hunting errant crumbs.

The Kambrook Blitzpro Power Blender

It easily cuts through harder and fibrous vegetables, fruits, and nuts; this means you can blend just about anything.

A powerful 800 watt motor ensures a smooth and balanced blend and also means the appliance can be used to grind seeds, coffee beans, and even hard cheeses.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
