3 Awesome Kitchen Must-Haves We Wish We Had

Live large with these small wonders


Those who live in compact condos and small apartments always face a challenge when it comes to completing the space with appliances and furniture. The measurements need to be just right and you also need to do your research on space-saving hacks.

If you're currently working on the kitchen, it pays to be smart when choosing your must-haves. To give you an idea on how to maximize the available space, here are some of the products that we can take cues from:

Slim Refrigerator

Instead of getting a compact refrigerator that might not have enough space for all your food, opt for a slim fridge. It offers you more food space and the feel of a normal refrigerator without its bulkiness. Remember to always measure the space where you intend to place the item so that you can double check the appliance that you've been planning to buy.

Portable Induction Stove

These portable wonders are great for small homes. You don’t have to worry about allotting space for a big stove, and you can even save counter space since you can keep it inside a cabinet or a pull-out shelf.

Countertop Oven

Believe it or not, you don’t need to buy the typical gas range and oven to bake your favorite treats. Choosing a countertop oven not only lets you bake, it is also pretty portable and can be put away when not in use.
