4 Tips on Buying Kitchen Must-Haves
How do you choose the right stove for your space?
Aside from choosing the perfect furniture and accessories, you also need to equip your space with top-of-the-line appliances and must-haves. Given the rising costs of utilities, you should spend smart and choose wisely. Buying appliances would be a breeze if you already know beforehand the items that you need! Prepare a list and make sure you do a pre-shopping research to know the specifications and features of the items that you're planning to purchase.
If you're doing your shopping anytime soon, here are 4 important questions that you need to keep in mind:
Should I get a free-standing or built-in cooker?
A free-standing cooker combines the range top and oven in one apparatus, making it more practical to use. However, built-in models allow you to customize your range top and oven to suit your needs. You can even have the finish or color customized.
Which is better: a gas or electric stove?
Gas is more economical to run and therefore gains an immediate advantage. However, it also depends on your budget and cooking style. If you think that an electric stove is more efficient for your rental condo home, then go for it.

Should I pick pans made from cast-iron or enamel?
Cast iron is the sturdiest and most expensive pan material. Its rough texture provides a good grip on pans. Enamel on the other hand, is a less expensive option and it’s also durable. The only flaw to consider is its smooth finish which may cause pans to slip when nudged.
What are the features of a cooking unit that works with a blue flame?
Unlike the more common yellow flame that tends to blacken pots over time, a blue flame is more concentrated, and therefore preserves kitchen equipment better.
