Note: This list only features the best kitchen appliances with at least 4.3/5 stars and 25+ reviews. All featured reviews were written by verified purchasers. Product selections are 100% our own - we do not accept sponsored placements.
It's far too easy to spend hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars equipping your kitchen with adequate appliances. But if you look hard enough, you can find high performing appliances in almost every category that won't break the bank.
You might be thinking, "ok, but who in the world has the time to spend hours researching kitchen appliances?"
We do (for better or for worse). Lucky you. Here's what we found.
1. An egg cooker that can boil, scramble, or poach up to 6 eggs in no time
Average Rating: 4.6/5 stars (2,600+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "The cooker works fantastically, I make fresh hard "boiled" eggs every single morning during the week and often will do poached eggs or omelets in it on the weekend."
2. A digital kitchen scale that displays weight in four units and has a three-minute auto shutoff feature
Average Rating: 4.5/5 stars (8,200+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I was pleasantly surprised when this scale arrived. It's small, lightweight and easy to use. It is very accurate. I weighed 100 grams of shrimp and compared it to a more expensive restaurant scale and both were on the money...100 grams. I also weighed a letter which was going USPS First Class mail and it registered the same weight as the post office scale. So, compared to a $100 restaurant scale and I don't know what the post office paid for theirs (I'm sure more than $25), this EatSmart Precision Pro Digital Scale was money well spent."
3. A smoothie blender with a take-along container - no need for a separate glass!
Average Rating: 4.5/5 stars (500+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I wanted to use this blender for a while before making a review, and I have to say I couldn't be happier! For such a small blender it's powerful. It has had no problem powering through frozen fruit and veggies for my smoothies 1 to 3 times a day! I purchased it because of the price, but the quality has been wonderful. The take along bottle is also good, I like how sleek it is, and the top is really cool looking. My only wish is that it could have come with a straw, but that's hardly a real complaint. I highly recommend this brand. I was really pleasantly surprised by it!"
4. A cordless electric water kettle with 6 preset temperature settings and a 2 hour "Keep Warm" feature
Average Rating: 4.5/5 stars (400+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "My husband commented on this product, "why didn't we buy this product years ago". The thing is, sometimes it takes longer to teach an old dog new tricks. We found out about this item through our daughter when we were visiting her, and realized we would save both in time and energy with this product! Easy to use, and it is beautiful to look at. We intend to buy another one for my office."
5. A programmable Crock-Pot so you can slow cook your way to a 7+ person feast
Average Rating: 4.6/5 stars (180+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This is a vast improvement over my old basic Crock-Pot. As a working mom and wife, I use it all the time. Especially now, with winter coming, it is so great to come home to a hot meal. I can put meals in before I leave for work, and by the time I get home I can just whip up a side dish (rice, potato, etc) and we are ready to eat."
6. A coffee maker than can brew both a single mug and a full pot (for under $60!?)
Average Rating: 4.3/5 stars (2,700+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "It is wonderful! I usually use the individual setting, and I love that I can set the timer for it to brew early in the morning when I get up. The individual side comes with a permanent filter which is perfect for brewing and easy to clean. I bought the permanent filter for the full pot side, because I have had it on every machine I've owned and it is easy to clean and better for our environment (plus no extra trips to the grocery store for paper filters). I also like the bold setting!
Easy to use, easy to program, does it's job. And well priced. I had considered the Keurig and I think this wins heads over tails. The machine is adaptable to an individual or a crowd, and it is a better financial choice from machine to coffee grounds. And cleanup is easy."
7. A heavy duty juicer with dishwasher-safe components
Average Rating: 4.5/5 stars (5,200+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "The design of this thing is absolutely first rate. Even down to the plug, which has a moulded loop so that it is easy to unplug and plug in! No tool is required to remove the basket, as in most other juicers. Breville uses a combo of ingenious design and magnets to hold it in place! Ease of use and fit and finish is perfect. Clean up is really a 2 minute operation and I don't even own a dishwasher."
8. A nonstick panini press that will warm your sandwiches to perfection
Average Rating: 4.3/5 stars (840+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I love it! I bought this because it was cheap, frankly. It's hard to beat $25 Prime. I wanted to be able to make hot sandwiches without using oil or butter, and I just made my first one. I'm in love! You plug it in and the red light goes green when the press is hot enough to use. Put the sandwich in, adjust and lock the arm, and then I set a timer for four minutes. It came out perfectly!"
9. A beautiful electric wine bottle opener that will become your kitchen's centerpiece
Average Rating: 4.8/5 stars (1,400+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I have never had an electric wine bottle opener before. This stainless steel one by Secura is beautifully designed. It's so easy to use that I almost feel lazy using it! You just put it charging on the charging stand for at least 8 hours before the first use, then just set on the top of your bottle and press the down button. The needle descends and takes the cork with it! Press the up button to release the cork. It's that simple. I absolutely love being able to watch it all happen through the clear bottom portion. It even lights up and looks all fancy."
10. A Belgian waffle maker because let's face it: you don't eat waffles often enough
Average Rating: 4.4/5 stars (1,060+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This waffle maker has replaced friends in my life. When an object has the power to bring you a tremendous amount of joy, you sit there and start to put things in perspective. Friendship is all about give and take. Many friends take, but not my waffle maker. Why deal with stressful people? Why entertain boring people? Why argue with stubborn people? You really don't have to. You can plug in your new friend, whip up some batter and enjoy the reciprocity, consistency and love that she brings. No more wasted money and time on brunch. She is EVERYTHING."
