The modern kitchen has become the technology centre of the home, with electrical appliances becoming available to simplify almost every task. With appliances such as coffee makers, air fryers, blenders and sandwich makers all becoming standard kitchen items, options for the best pop-up kitchen socket have extended far beyond the traditional fridge and toaster — making your kitchen’s electronics an important factor when considering design.

Endless electrical choices

There are so many electrical appliances on the market that it can be difficult to determine which ones are essential items and which ones are destined for the back of the cupboard. We are going to take a walk through some of the more popular products available to try and break it down a little, which will hopefully help with deciding what you really need.

Coffee machines

Lovers of coffee have become used to being able to produce a café quality coffee at home to enjoy every day. From simple pod coffee makers to espresso machines, it seems every modern kitchen has a style of coffee machine in situ.

Air fryers

Initially a bit of a fad, there are still die-hard fans of this appliance due to the ease and healthy nature of cooking. An air fryer delivers all of your fried favourites without extra oil or fat. Guilt-free fish and chips? Yes, please!

Blenders

Vitamix has become a household name and brought blenders into the essential category of a well-equipped modern kitchen. Mixing up smoothies, pureeing soups, crushing ice for those delicious G&T’s, the list goes on and on. The blender is an exceptionally useful and versatile kitchen item.

Toasters

Who would have thought a toaster could have evolved to the standard that you can find today. From two to eight slice models, crumpet settings, bagel settings and digital toast levels remove the guesswork from the more traditional dial. This is one electrical appliance a kitchen simply cannot be without.

Slow cookers

Another essential item that has improved significantly since the days when the crockpot was introduced. Slow cookers have become popular due to busy lifestyles. Self-cooking meals save so much time and taste amazing. Succulent slow-cooked meat is always a winner.

Mixers

Remember when the Kenwood Chef was the ultimate in kitchen mixers? They’re still around with fantastic modern improvements. There are also so many brands available now that it can be difficult to choose the best. Ultimately, whichever brand you go for, you will find your electric mixer will be a well-received addition to your kitchen.

Plugging it all in

We have listed such a small selection of electrical appliances available for the kitchen it has barely scratched the surface. Grinders, immersion blenders, kettles, carving knives, so many plug-in appliances and we haven’t even mentioned devices such as tablets and phones for recipes or online grocery shopping. It kind of makes your mind spin with images of banks of bulky white boxes for power points lining your kitchen benches. This is where pop-up electrical sockets for kitchens come into your design.
