Modern kitchen appliances offer a wide variety of sleek designs, sizes, and finishes to blend in with your kitchen decor.  Many appliances use "smart" technology, with microprocessors and electronic sensors, to give their users the optimum cooking experience.  Some innovative refrigerators and dishwashers are designed with pull-out drawers instead of doors!  A notable trend is the use of commercially-styled or commercial-grade appliances in high-end kitchens.  Every year, there is a broader and more sophisticated variety of small kitchen appliances from which to choose.

Basically, a kitchen appliance is a human energy-saving device that uses electricity or gas energy to perform some common kitchen or cooking task.  In the kitchen, appliances are used to refrigerate food, open food containers, chop and blend food, cook foods and heat beverages, and dispose of food scraps.  There are a large number of appliance brands and models vying for the consumer's attention, so the kitchen appliance market is very competitive.  If you are considering a kitchen renovation project or an expensive appliance purchase, you may first wish to read the Consumer Reports appliance reviews.
