Living in this modern era, it is not surprising to find many appliances in our homes. As by-products of technology, these appliances enable us to perform everyday routines much easier. There are appliances that are must-haves in every Malaysian home such as washing machines, air conditioners, and refrigerators. However, there are a wide array of appliances that are useful but are often overlooked such as the ones mentioned below:
Whether you are staying alone or you have a large family, microwave ovens are one of the most versatile appliances that you can have at home. Despite the versatility that it provides, microwave ovens have sadly been relegated to reheating food by many users. In fact, microwaves can be used to whip up quick and simple meals, including a wide variety of mouth-watering desserts. Microwave ovens also enable you to control the temperature and cooking period that you want by pressing a few buttons.
Based on the name itself, you might think that this appliance has only one function – to make your daily cup of coffee. You might not expect this but other than the obvious purpose, a coffee maker can also be used to prepare meals! The burner on the coffee maker enables you to heat up some bread for a simple breakfast. You can also cook soups with a coffee maker for those chilly nights. Rather than going to Starbucks for your daily dose of caffeine, why not make your own cuppa and have a simple meal too?
If you have allergies, the humid Malaysian climate have many can trigger and worsen the situation. Allergy triggers such as dust mites, mold, and mildew thrive in humidity, hence fixing a dehumidifier can help to mitigate this problem. Installing a dehumidifier in your home will regulate the moisture in the air and effectively reduce humidity levels, making your home less hospitable to allergens. This appliance also reduces odour caused by mold and mildew, getting rid of any “musty” or “rotting” smell that might exist in your home. Moreover, another advantage of having a dehumidifier at home is that it lowers energy costs as it helps your air conditioner to run more efficiently.
Bread has become a staple food item amongst Malaysians thanks to its versatility. However, most mass-produced bread today is filled with excessive amounts of unhealthy additives including salt and preservatives. Rather than purchasing ready-made bread, why not bake your own loaves at home with bread makers? By baking your own bread, you can control the ingredients, making it healthier than those that you purchase from stores.
