Which Kitchen Appliance? started its humble beginnings at the breakfast bar in my kitchen.

The idea of starting Which Kitchen Appliance? came in 2016 when a friend was planning a new kitchen. She knew I had trained as a chef, had an interest in interior design and a passion for cooking. We sat over coffee discussing the merits of how working kitchens should be laid out and then started hunting for new kitchen appliances.

Wow! What a minefield that was. It took several weeks to analyse and review various ovens and hobs and finally come up with a short list. It was, quite frankly, slow and boring and took much of the excitement out of buying a new kitchen.

At this point in my life and my career two things occurred to me: I was bored in my job and my son was getting older and not needing so much of my time as he was becoming more independent. These two realisations led me to thinking about a new project from which the idea of Which Kitchen Appliance? was born.

My reasons for starting Which Kitchen Appliance? was to provide a service for homeowners looking for new kitchen equipment and appliances that was unbiased, helpful and would make the whole process or researching kitchen equipment and appliances interesting, enjoyable and relatively painless.

Using my experience in helping my friend I decided I wanted to help people to:

  • Save hours in research (we all lead busy lives)
  • Make informed decisions based on their needs and budgets

I now work with a friend to produce the content on Which Kitchen Appliance? We are a self-funded and independent operation and as such we do not have the budget to purchase every oven, cooker, kettle, hob, extractor fan etc. that we review.

So, the next best thing is for us to do our own independent research into each product we review. We take the pain and you get the gain!

No stone is left unturned so to speak and it takes a huge amount of time as we read every review we can to gather as much information and insightful knowledge about each product whilst making notes on comments by real buyers. We then write a brief description on each product to enable you to quickly and efficiently work out if this product might be good for you in terms of needs and budgets. We clearly state the good things and maybe not so good things about each product and give you the sizes and weights (technical aspects) all in one place.

If we have personally brought or used a product we will of course give our personal opinion too.

Our Mission

To provide homeowners with all levels of cooking abilities to source sound, unbiased reviews and guides to research and make the right decisions when buying kitchen equipment and appliances to suit their lifestyle needs and budgets.

How Often Do We Update Our Content?

Regularly, it is incredibly frustrating clicking on a link and being taken to another page to buy the item only to find it out of stock! This happens to be a huge bugbear for us at Which Kitchen Appliance? although every now and then you may find an item or two out of stock due to logistical challenges at retail for a multitude of reasons – Covid being the most recent challenge for retail and manufacturers alike.
