Reduce Your Appliances
I know no one wants to reduce their kitchen appliances. But if your kitchen is really small, I think you have to consider this.
Let me summarize some of the techniques to organize kitchen appliances. After that, you will definitely expand your kitchen space more than a little.
Buying appliances should consider the frequency of use and function.
The appliances that used almost every day such as rice cookers, microwave ovens, food processor, pressure cooker, espresso machine, etc. This type of electrical appliance has to be fully functional and easy to use, and it is worth investing in.
Try to use multi-functional kitchen appliances to reduce the need for buying a single function machine.
Donate Or Throw Everything Unused
Throw away the excess bowl and expired food. Place the repeat cutlery into the donation box. What is more difficult to choose is something that is usually not used, but is reluctant to throw, such as a juicer that uses only once or twice a year.
