Have you recently moved somewhere new and realized the kitchen space was lacking? Still want to do some cooking, but don’t have a lot of money to spare? No worries—there are a few great small appliances out there that might fall into your price range, regardless of what it may be. Even better? They’ll help you come up with something new to try whenever you’re feeling it.
Ah, a girl’s (or guy’s) best friend…the coffee maker. Coffee is heavily relied on by adults and teens alike, so it’s no wonder coffee makers can be found in nearly every home, hotel, or office. They make it simple to prepare a variety of delicious caffeinated beverages with little to no wait-ing required. Additionally, you can make a few quick meals in them too (here is more information if you’re interested).
Coffee makers can be pretty costly, but there are always a few good budget options that still do everything you need them to. Here is an example: the Mr. Coffee ECMP50 Espresso Maker is a great entry-level coffee making machine, but it does not fall short of others. It can be ordered online for $80-$100—a surprisingly decent price for one of these machines. If you search for “Mr. Coffee ECMP50”on Amazon, you’ll be able to read what others are saying about it. As you can see, it’s got a lot of great ratings.
Food processors are great appliances to have because having one gives you the ability to make so many different things. Whether it’s soup, protein shakes, hummus, curry, peanut butter, or even dog food if you’re on a budget and need to cook for your pet, food processors can handle almost anything you throw at them. They can be pretty pricey, however—up to $400! That’s a pretty hefty cost for a small appliance.
Fortunately, there are a few good budget options for processors. Unfortunately, however, they aren’t all built equally. Some of the cheaper options reach as low as $30, but have a weaker blade. This can result in poorer results and the need for a replacement before too long. There is one processor, however, that is able to keep up with a lot of the costlier versions, and it’s only $70. It’s the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth 70573. More information on this processor can be found here.
If you like rice, rice cookers really are a must-have. They’re generally cheaper—no need to shell out $400 for one of these! They tend to range in price from around $30-$200. However, unless you’re looking for all the bells and whistles, there’s really no need to spend $200. You may choose a cheaper option such as the Aroma 8-Cup cooker, which stays under $30. If you’re will-ing to spend a little more, however, this is a powerful (and eco-friendly) option. It comes with more bells and whistles without exceeding $70
