Pizza Oven

Impress guests with your culinary skills by using a countertop pizza oven in the home. They won’t be able to tell the difference between your homemade pizza, and the one made by the local pizzeria.

Speed Oven

The speed oven combines microwave and convection technology to provide speed and high-quality results.

Big name brands like the Miele stainless-steel speed oven provides fifteen operating modes and employs an electronic automatic temperature setting. Even with all the options, it is very simple to use.

Espresso Machine

Enjoy delicious coffee every day right in your own home. An espresso machine is one countertop appliance you will cherish if you are a coffee-lover. And it’s definitely catching on.

Whether you go with the pod machines for ease of use, or prefer grinding your coffee yourself, mornings will never be the same once you can wake up to a fresh cup.

Panini Press

The Panini Press enhances a plain melted cheese sandwich, and most of the available presses can cook several sandwiches at the same time. Some even allow you to grill meat! In fact, there’s a lot of creative ways to make use of a Panini Press.

The press itself is very simple to use. It needs some preheating, yet your sandwich will still be ready in a matter of a few minutes. The upper plate can be adjusted depending on how thick the sandwich is. The non-stick feature makes it very easy to clean.
