Minimalist kitchen equipment


In today’s world of squeezy high rise homes, minimalist interiors are here to stay. It doesn’t just help you save a ton of space, it also eliminates clutter in your life. 

Most often, it’s our kitchens that tend to stick out like sore thumbs thanks to bulky appliances that sit on our countertops. That’s why it’s essential for new homeowners and those undergoing renovations to plan for a clean look to match the rest of their home. Well, look no further than these five minimalist kitchen equipment:


1. Wells water purifier – elegant & tankless

Think of water dispensers and purifiers and you’ll most likely imagine something that eats into a lot of your counter space. But with Wells The One, you can have high-end features packaged in a sleek little device. It comes in three colours to match your kitchen theme: white, red and dark brown with a metallic gold spout and bezel for a touch of luxury.

2. Mistral rice cooker – compact with touch buttons


Most rice cookers have a pretty run-of-the-mill aesthetic – they’re often somewhat bulky with knobs, buttons and handles. For something you’d proudly display at the dinner table, check out the Mistral Mimica 0.8L Digital Rice Cooker ($89)
