Small Appliances Overview
Some small appliances are absolutely essential to the running of a home, like vacuums and floor cleaners, but many are just nice finishing touches to give a luxury feel to your kitchen. We're here to help you choose which is right for your home.
What types of small appliances are there to choose from?
We've got everything from steam cleaners for the house-proud to food mixers and processors for keen bakers. If you want barista style coffee without the café prices, take a look at our coffee machines - with filter, espresso, bean to cup and pod models to pick from. If you're always on the go, you might want to take a look at our wide range of microwaves too - we've got one to suit every budget. With everyday necessities like kettles, irons and toasters, to pizza makers, soup makers and bread makers, we've got something for every kitchen.
What do I need to consider when buying a Vacuum or Floor Cleaner?
A big thing is house size. Upright vacuums are perfect for cleaning large areas, whereas cylinder models are more compact and easier to pull around. If anyone in your family suffers from allergies, bagged models are ideal as they're great at trapping in dust and allergens, whereas bagless models can be easier to maintain. Look out for special animal friendly vacuums if you have pets too. Steam floor cleaners are great too, as they don't just get rid of visible dirt - they're really hygienic too.
What type of coffee machine is right for me?
Pod coffee machines are great if you want different specialty flavours that are easy to make. You just pop the pod or disk in the top and you're ready to go. Bean to cup models use a built-in grinder to give you a real fresh flavour - making them perfect for coffee connoisseurs. Filter machines are the simplest to use - they just drip the water through a basket of coffee to give you a great tasting and smelling beverage. If you like Espresso, why not go for a dedicated Espresso machine? They use fresh grinded coffee and some can even use beans.
What type of food preparation appliance is best for me?
If you're a keen baker you'll make great use of a food mixer. You can throw all of your ingredients in and the appliance will do all the hard work for you - many have different settings depending on what end result you want. Food processors are like having a sous chef in the kitchen - they chop, mix, blend, slice, juice- anything! Blenders and juicers are great if you're on a health kick and are into making fresh juices and smoothies - blenders are ideal for soups too.
What other small appliances are there to consider?
Every kitchen needs a microwave, kettle and toaster, which is why we sell a wide range here at ao.com. From basic to premium, there's one for everyone. If you're a bit more adventurous with your cooking, why not try a pizza, soup, ice cream or bread maker? The kids will look to get involved with the baking too.
