Tips & Techniques Equip & Tools Electrics Registry Guide

Let us help you choose the perfect kitchen appliances for your home. Our tips and resources will help you enjoy more of the foods and drinks you love.


Food for Thought

  • Think of your registry as an opportunity to replace, update or add to your kitchen appliances.
  • If you enjoy baking, register for both a portable hand mixer and a heavy-duty stand mixer. Hand mixers are ideal for quick tasks like whipping cream or egg whites; stand mixers are good for large jobs like kneading bread dough. Stand mixers also offer specialized attachments like pasta rollers and ice cream makers.
  • For convenience, consider appliances that can be programmed to start cooking while you're away from the kitchen, like a slow cooker or rice cooker.
  • Include a food processor on your list. Equipped with multiple blades and disks, this versatile appliance prepares ingredients of all types and is a real time-saver.
