5 kitchen gadgets all renters should have

If you are lucky enough to live in a Tropicana Property, you know that you have great amenities. You do not have to worry about a refrigerator with freezer, stove, oven, dishwasher or even a microwave. We have those bases covered for you!

Here is a list of 5 affordable appliances to help you make some delicious meals in your kitchen:

1. Emersion Blender

Emersion blenders are great for a few reasons. They are small, powerful, and they do not take up space in your kitchen. You can easily make a quick smoothie. An immersion blender is a kitchen tool used for blending soups, sauces, and other liquids. An immersion blender is basically a stick with blender blades at the end of it.

2. Pressure/Instant Cooker

Electric pressure cookers are all the rage these days. They are affordable, easy to use, and easy to clean. Why would you want one? If you are looking for the ability to sauté, steam, and cook something rapidly – then a pressure cooker is likely for you. Look for them in big box stores, especially around holidays as they are likely to be on sale.

3. Measuring Utensils

Using a glass or plastic cup to measure out a cup won’t give you the precise amount you need. A small spoon is not the same as a teaspoon measurement. It’s important to have a set of measuring cups and spoons in the kitchen. It makes cooking slightly less stressful and your food taste a little tastier.

4. Ice Cube Trays

Everything has a purpose, and something have multiple purposes. Ice cube trays are perfect for many things. Not only can you freeze water and make ice, but you can also make a variety of goodies. You can freeze any type of juice or sweet beverage and make homemade popsicles. Many people even re-purpose their ice cube trays and use them to store jewelry in their drawers.  

5. Shelf Inserts

Though you have ample shelving inside your kitchen at a Tropicana Property, you can always make more. Investing in some inexpensive cabinet shelves will you organize your kitchen while utilizing your space. Trust me, you will thank me on this one.

There you have it. You do not have to spend a lot to make your kitchen the best it can be. There are a number of gadgets out there to inspire any would be chef. If you have some recommendations of your own, tweet us at @TropProperties on Twitter.
