Whether you live in a house or flat kitchen counterspace can be limited so it is essential to think carefully about the kitchen gadgets that are worthwhile in terms of cost, space and number of uses before you buy.
There are some kitchen gadgets that are undoubtedly worth their weight in gold for instance an air fryer. They are not only a healthier way to cook but also produce delicious homemade chips at a fraction of the price of bought ones. They do take up space on the worktop but can be stored away in a cupboard or utility room.
There are however lots of gadgets that are bought, perhaps after seeing an advertisement on the television or online, that are used once or twice and then are relegated to the loft. One such gadget is a bread maker. Many people buy them with the intention of baking their own bread but quickly discover that it is a bit hit and miss how the loaves turn out and that it is actually much cheaper buying bread from a bakery or supermarket. Some would argue that once you have found a recipe that works it is better to bake your own bread, but this can always be achieved without the use of a specialised bread maker.
