Time to make a new kitchen investment! If you have to buy something new for the kitchen - or any room for that matter - wouldn’t you rather make a one-time investment in a product that is sure to work efficiently and last a long time, than settle for the cheap version that’s probably going to break or stop working in just a few short months or even weeks? Then what? Then you’re stuck buying a new one anyway! Seriously, just suck it up and spend the extra money for the good one. Most of the time - in terms of kitchen products anyway - it’s totally worth the extra penny.

  1. Olive Oil

    Let’s start small, because sometimes, even the smallest of purchases is hard to justify when it involves spending a few extra dollars. But trust me, many times, it’s well-worth it - even in the case of olive oil. Instead of buying the $4 bottle of store-brand olive oil, try splurging for a drastic difference in both taste and quality. The good stuff is generally around $25 per 25 ml bottle, and while this may sound like a lot of money for some oil, you really don’t need to use too much to notice a difference. What’s more is that when you take the leap and get the better-quality olive oil, you can use it for much more. For example, you can make your own salad dressing, or add some to a homemade pizza, without getting that distinct olive oily taste.
  2. Keurig

    These incredible, time-saving, mess-free coffee makers are no secret to anyone these days, but many people still can’t imagine spending nearly $100 on a coffee maker. Um, hello! Coffee in less than 30 seconds with no spilled grounds on the counter or messy filter to throw away?? What in the world could be better?! A Keurig is totally worth the money in my book.
  3. Vitamix Blender

    Most regular blenders are pretty inexpensive… as in $10-on-Black-Friday-inexpensive. Likewise, many of these cheap blenders have to be replaced quite often, because the motors in them are, well, cheap. In other words, they’re not built with as much durability as the more expensive blenders, and because of this, they don’t last nearly as long. The isn’t at all the case with the Vitamix, though! The Vitamix is, without a doubt, a top-of-the-line blender. The smooth mixing, blending, pureeing, chopping, and more, without any issues whatsoever, makes this a must-have product in the kitchen that is worth every single penny.
  4. KitchenAid Stand Mixer

These popular high-quality mixers can be used to make anything from cupcakes, cookies, cakes, and brownies to even the most delicious pastas! Not to mention, the huge variety of colors that this product is available in makes this mixer a perfect fit for almost any color scheme, theme, or style in your kitchen.
  5. GE Wall Oven

    You know those cooking shows where the host just turns around and pulls something out of the oven at eye-level? If you thought those nifty eye-level ovens were just for show on TV, you were wrong! GE has made the wall oven available to every homeowner with their latest oven model - as long as they’re able and willing to pay the extra money, that is! No more bending over to put the heavy Thanksgiving turkey in the oven. Now, you can save your back and your cabinet space! This oven includes convenient french doors AND a smartphone app to control your oven settings from afar. It really doesn’t get any easier than this!
  6. Thermador Induction Cooktop

    The Thermador Induction Cooktop is basically just a really fancy, amazing griddle with a 36” end-to-end electromagnetic surface, which provides more cooking area than any other griddle. Anywhere you place your food on this cooktop, it will be cooked nice and evenly. You can cook with both low and high heat levels, and if for some reason you need to move your pot, the cooking surface will automatically transfer your settings from your original location to your new location. Not even the Jetsons had that kind of technology!
  7. Miele Dishwasher
