I grew up in a busy house that was the go-to gathering place for my friends and family, so it’s not surprising that I find myself the perpetual hostess in my adult life. Whether it’s Friendsgiving or the Super Bowl, game night or an intimate dinner party, I’m the first to volunteer my home (and my time) up to the group, and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love every minute of it. That’s in part because, over the years, I’ve figured out all the tips, tricks, and hacks that make hosting fun and easy, including which kitchen appliances every host needs.
I know what you’re thinking: More appliances to add to the kitchen? Where will they all fit? But before you start stressing over appliance storage, hear me out. Kitchen appliances — whether they help with the prep work, cooking, or serving — can make the life of a host easier and less stressful, which makes the extra appliances worth every inch of the precious pantry space they take up.
Are you ready to become the best host you can be? Yay! Here are five kitchen appliances you need in your life.
