Breville Espresso Machine: If you’re going to do anything in the kitchen, you might as well be awake first, and there’s no better way to wake up than with this favorite of coffee aficionados everywhere. You can say goodbye to those mochas and lattes from the coffee shop down the street and instead craft barista-level drinks right in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Vitamix Blender: You may have seen Vitamix demonstrations at retail stores, and we’re here to tell you that a Vitamix blender really is as good as they claim. Whether you’re a smoothie fanatic or you want to use it to make soups and sauces the easy way, a Vitamix blender is tough enough to handle just about anything you can throw into it, and it’ll make a perfectly smooth end product every time which makes it one of the new kitchen must haves.

Cuisinart Food Processor: A true kitchen staple, Cuisinart may not be the only name in the food processing game, but it’s certainly the first. Cuisinart remains undefeated when it comes to everything from chopping vegetables to kneading dough. Whether you’re a regular chef or someone who only cooks on occasion, no kitchen is complete without this versatile and indispensable gadget.
