Trying to cut back on takeaways? Are homemade meals too time-consuming and frustrating to prepare? Your range of kitchen items (or lack thereof) may be the problem. An investment in kitchen equipment will not only save you time in the kitchen, but will make the cooking experience much more exciting! Our kitchen equipment auctions are ideal for those looking to deck out their kitchen with all the essentials – without breaking the bank. We’ve put together a list of Gregsons’ essential kitchen items that will help you bring out your inner Masterchef!
If you’re not a tea drinker, buying a kettle for your kitchen may not be your first priority – but you’d be surprised how much time you can save when using an electric kettle for cooking!
An electric kettle boils water much faster than a stove or microwave can, making the process of cooking so much more efficient! From pasta and noodles to veggies and eggs – once you try it, you won’t want to cook without it!
Even cleaning can be made quicker and easier with a kettle – ditch the toxic chemicals and use boiling water and a cloth for simple stove-top cleaning.
Feeling too lazy to cook after work? Before you grab your phone to order takeaway, a microwave could be your saviour. From heating up leftovers to steaming veggies and boiling potatoes, a microwave is far more versatile than you think – and it could save you more than just time. Studies show that modern microwaves are actually more energy efficient than stovetops – meaning lower electricity bills for you!*
Gregsons’ kitchen auctions are your first stop for purchasing a microwave for your home. Come along to our next kitchen equipment auction auction and make cooking at home easier and cheaper than ever before.
Set of Knives
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to prepare food with a blunt knife. The first step to culinary success is having a small collection of quality knives that will do the hard work for you.
When it comes to kitchen essentials, you only really need 4 knives to get started:
- Chef’s Knife (8” or 10”)
- Paring Knife (3”)
- Slicing / Carving Knife (10”)
- Long Serrated Bread Knife
Keep a lookout on our website for upcoming kitchen equipment auctions, as we often feature high quality knife sets and blocks. Trust us: sharp knives are a game changer in the kitchen.
Stainless Steel Pots and Pans
Durable pans, pots and ovenproof dishes are a staple of any kitchen. Investing in stainless steel pots and pans won’t be a choice you’ll regret: not only will they last longer, you’ll also save yourself the frustration of finding your dinner stuck to the bottom of your pan!
With just one ovenproof dish, you can easily cook up a quick, easy and delicious roast that will feed the whole family. Pop some veggies, chicken, herbs and spices together in a pan in the oven and you’ll have yourself the perfect midweek meal that requires barely any washing up.
