So whether you’re feeling like Loving Your Kitchen This Valentine’s Day or you just need a little excuse to treat yo’ self, then look no further. Check out these kitchen appliance reviews and recommendations, and leave us a comment telling us what to feature next.
Seemingly like the rest of the U.S. right now, we just can’t get enough of the Stanley Cup! Sure, you may say that this is just the next water bottle to soar to the top of the most-popular-for-a-few-years list of water bottles out there, but, well, it’s just that good. Pour your drink into this 40-ounce travel tumbler and it will be kept hot or cold for hours. The handle is enviable, to be sure, but our favorite part of this trendy water bottle? Well, it’ll fit in the drink holder in your car. We can’t handle just how many water bottles won’t fit into that space, and for this reason (in addition to the others we’ve listed here), we give it an A+ on this kitchen appliance review. Now, treating yo’ self takes many different forms, and sometimes, a new, trendy water bottle is all you need to do the trick. What color are you thinking? We’re obsessed with the chambray.
Now, once you go waltzing into work with your new Stanley cup, you’re sure to be feeling top of your game. Why not let that flair and excitement travel over into lunch? Besides, remember you had a goal to eat at the office more this year? This will be easier than ever—and trendier than ever—with the help of a new lunch box kit that will (gasp!) actually make meal prepping more enjoyable. We’ve always loved the bento box style lunch kit, and this one really does take the cake.
First of all, there are lots of colors to choose from, which you know we love over here at Home Kitchenary. But it’s not just fashion over function, folks. This bento box has all the versatility you need: a fork and spoon that double as chopsticks, three compartments for all of your lunch goodies, and a middle spacer so you can use the space just how you want to. It’s leak-safe, even for soups, so that’s an obvious win. But just in case that’s not enough to sell you, then it’s also freezer-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe. Meal prepping has never looked so good.
After a long hard day of work, there’s nothing quite like a homemade cocktail, right? Well what if that homemade cocktail is made with herbs from your very own garden? Whether it’s for a cocktail, baking, or a little extra umph in your cooking, having herbs grown right in your kitchen is sure to make the kitchen a bit more fun. Besides, nurturing a plant and having that greenery around us is obviously good for our mental health. If you ask us, that sounds like self-care. Our personal favorite is the AeroGarden, and for all of you maybe-not-so-green thumbs out there, it features a 21-day germination guarantee. The benefits of AeroGardens are immense: there’s less mess, it saves space, and you can enjoy it year-round, just to name a few. We recommend starting with this particular product so you can see how you actually like it and if it’s a good fit for your lifestyle and needs. You can always scale up from here!

Now, so far we’ve kind of been walking through a typical day: a drink in your Stanley Cup, a delicious lunch in your bento box, and then a fresh cocktail with homemade herbs. Coffee, arguably, should’ve probably been at the beginning of the list with this logic. However, we want you to really think of what your morning coffee could be. Instead of a rushed cup of so-so coffee at the house or an overpriced coffee from a chain, think of how—with self-care—you can transform your daily coffee experience. That’s right: we’re talking about a coffee station that allows you to actually relax a little in the morning before you rush off to work.
There are some key reasons why we chose to feature this particular coffee station in our kitchen appliance reviews:
- It’s cute! And it’s open. It doesn’t feel like another clunky piece of furniture to find its way into your kitchen. It will match your decor while also being a statement piece of its own.
- It’s spacious! With six shelves AND space for hanging items, it’s packing a lot of storage into what, ultimately, isn’t that big of a space. All this is on top of a spacious cupboard that you can close to ignore the eventual mess that finds its way there.
- It’s functional! Who doesn’t need another spot to hang a hand towel? And three outlets right on the actual piece of furniture? This is what coffee dreams are made of.
- It’s versatile! Maybe coffee isn’t quite your self-care thing. I mean, we don’t get it… but we support you. If that’s the case, turn it into a baker’s rack, microwave oven stand, additional kitchen storage, or a liquor cabinet + cocktail-making station.
Finally, we saved the best for last with these kitchen appliance reviews. No matter where you’re at in your journey of self-care, we’re pretty sure we can all do with a coffee upgrade. May we introduce the All-in-One Combination Coffee Maker & Espresso Machine from De’Longhi? Drumroll, please! Now, especially if you’re considering a coffee station like the one we shared above, we really recommend you up your actual coffee as well.
This coffee maker and espresso machine will save you time; it allows you to brew coffee and espresso at the same time. And what will you do with all that time you save? Enjoy the richest flavored coffee around, of course! And if you’re trying to get into at-home lattes and cappuccinos, then luckily for you, the updated and adjustable steam wand has your back. And here’s the ultimate in self-care: set it all the night before and you’ll wake up to the smell of coffee with this coffee maker’s digital timer that will make it right when you ask. If you’re looking to improve your daily life and feel a bit more of that self-care, then we recommend this coffee + espresso maker… and we hope you get the time to sit down and truly enjoy it in the morning before rushing out the door.
