Making The Most Of Your Apartment Kitchen Your apartment kitchen may feel a little claustrophobic, but you can still prepare all of your favorite foods.

Conserve Counter Space in Indianapolis With Compact Kitchen Apartment Appliances

Likely the most crucial but large appliances in Indianapolis kitchens is your microwave. In the small chance that your apartment doesn’t come equipped with a built-in microwave, find a small countertop model with a compact build. Mini microwaves will still warm up last night’s dinner and pop popcorn while freeing up your counter space.

An additional compact kitchen appliance for Indianapolis apartments is a small coffee brewer. Many brands have trim models for cramped kitchens. A mini Keurig will fit anywhere and brews you a single cup on par with anything from your neighborhood diners. If you do need a full-size coffee brewer, seek out one with a square design and slim profile that will nestle neatly alongside your fridge.

Replace Large Kitchen Appliances With Smaller Substitutes

If you’re unable to find a compact kitchen appliance for your Indianapolis apartment, you may have luck with another smaller utensil that does the same function. For space-conscious bakers, you can swap out the huge stand mixer that takes up most of your kitchen space for a hand mixer that slides in a cabinet. Individual smoothie and immersion blenders craft creamy beverages like traditional blenders do should you crave a pick-me-up post workout or swim. And a thin mandolin provides you perfectly sliced veggies when a food processor is too bulky. With these replacements, you can make all of your family favorites without overflowing your kitchen.

Minimize Kitchen Clutter With Multi-use Appliances

If you’re lacking kitchen storage options, you might need to reduce how many cooking appliances you possess. Buying a food processor and blender combo will help by bringing together the functions of two tools into one. These appliances use a lone base and both a blender cup and a food processor cup with the needed blades. This frees up the space of two bulky equipment bases, and you are free to make a protein shake or slice veggies with ease.

Odds are, no kitchen utensil offers more than an all-in-one pressure cooker, like an Instapot. Nearly all models are a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, and with even more capabilities. Slow cookers are available in various sizes if you’re cooking for a family or just you and your significant other. You can make your main dish or a side dish in it and still have space on the counter to cook other foods.
