Save Counter Space in Indianapolis With Compact Kitchen Apartment Appliances

One of the most necessary but bulky appliances in Indianapolis kitchens is your microwave.

Mini microwaves will still heat leftovers and pop popcorn while freeing up your counter space.

A separate compact kitchen appliance for Indianapolis apartments is a discreet coffee brewer. Many brands make petite models for narrow kitchens. A mini Keurig will fit nearly anywhere and pours you a single cup on par with anything from your local restaurants.

Swap Bulky Kitchen Appliances With Smaller Substitutes

When you can’t find a compact kitchen appliance for your Indianapolis apartment, you may discover another slim gadget that does the same thing. For studio apartment bakers, you can replace the huge stand mixer that takes up most of your counter for a hand mixer that can be stored in a cabinet. Individual smoothie and immersion blenders make healthy beverages like regular blenders can should you need a drink after a workout or swim. And a thin mandolin provides you uniformly cut veggies when a food processor is too bulky. With these replacements, you can serve all of your signature dishes without overflowing your kitchen.

Minimize Kitchen Clutter With Multipurpose Appliances

If you’re lacking kitchen storage area, you may need to lower how many cooking appliances you own. Selecting a a blender/food processor combo helps you do this by joining the power of two devices into one. These machines employ only a single base and interchangeable cups with their respective blades. This frees up the counter space of two bulky equipment bases, and you are able to make a shake or puree veggies like a pro.

Perhaps no kitchen utensil can do more than a new pressure cooker, such as an Instapot. Most makes are a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and with even more capabilities. Slow cookers are available in various sizes if you’re feeding for kids or just you and your partner. You are free to make your main meal or a side dish in it and have plenty of room on the counter to prepare other foods.
