(KMSP) - More people are living smaller lifestyles these days. Smaller lifestyles tend to translate to smaller footprint residences - condominium and apartment living is on the rise. With that, brands are creating appliances to accommodate this trend.
Kitchen-Aid Mini Artisan - 25% lighter, 20% smaller, yet still packed with all the power one comes to expect from Kitchen-Aid. You can still use all the optional attachments, EXCEPT the ice cream attachment.
Breville Smart Oven Air - I'm not quite sure what this oven doesn't do, yet it certainly replaces most of the work I used to do in my full-size oven. With convection and built-in light, it can also be used as a toaster. The new model's interior is wide enough for pans with handles, and high enough to accommodate a loaf of yeast bread. The pizza setting will give you a crisp pizza just like the pizzeria down the street, not to mention the air fry setting which replaces your deep-fryer and the messy oil involved in that.
Cuisinart Vertical Waffle Iron - Not only does this waffle iron offer up a smaller footprint, which sits vertically for easy storage, it also includes a pre-measured cup that you use for each waffle that eliminates the spillage and mess most associate with making waffles at home.
VitaMix Perfect Blend Scale - Have you ever made a smoothie for one, only to realize you have enough for eight?
