Kitchen Upgrades for Effortless Entertaining

(StatePoint) Putting together a feast for guests is no easy feat. Anyone who has prepared a multi-course meal knows just how difficult it can be to time everything properly, and to find storage and cooking space for each component of the meal. However, with the following kitchen update ideas, your preparations can be seamless and stress-free.


A Two-Zone Air Fryer

Love your air fryer? There’s good news. New innovative two-zone air fryer models offer twice the functionality, versatility and convenience of traditional air fryers within a small footprint.

Using the Midea 11QT Two-Zone Air Fryer Oven, you can prepare two fully independent meals, or a meal and side dish, simultaneously. Use its Sync Finish feature to automatically align cooking times so that all your dishes are ready to serve at precisely the same time. No more cold mashed potatoes!

Occupying only about two-thirds the counter space of both a traditional single-basket air fryer and toaster oven, you can air fry, bake, grill, roast, and keep items warm with one appliance, and still have room for all your other kitchen activities. Also, Wi-Fi capabilities through the SmartHome app allow for voice-activated control and the execution of pre-programmed smart recipes for flawless meal prep.


A Versatile Faucet

Still working with a standard faucet? Think about upgrading to a more versatile model that includes such special features as a pull-down sprayer for targeted rinsing of large pots and pans, and touchless operation for the elimination of messes, smudges, cross-contamination and other hazards and irritations that come with cooking and baking. Whether you’re prepping the Thanksgivingbird or kneading the pie dough, there are times when it’s best not to touch anything, including the handle of the faucet. Some of today’s models even offer LED color changes to indicate the water temperature, so you don’t get burned by the wrong faucet choice.


A Better Fridge

If organizing your fridge during holiday hosting feels like a game of Tetris, it may be time to upgrade. Boasting 29.3 cubic feet of storage space, the Midea MRF29D6AST Standard Depth French Door Refrigerator with Dual Ice Maker could become your ultimate helper this year, making room for all the favorites, from turkey to pie.

Its Click & Glide door bin effortlessly accommodates beverage bottles without any shelf reshuffling, and the dual ice maker in the refrigerator and freezer ensures up to 8 pounds of ice daily, keeping drinks chilled and guests refreshed. Drink fresher water with the instant water filtration technology, which filters drinking water as it dispenses it, as opposed to allowing filtered water to stagnate in a tank.

Finally, Wi-Fi and Voice Control mean you can receive real-time alerts, and adjust temperature settings remotely, without needing to open the refrigerator doors, keeping ingredients as fresh as possible.

Time spent with loved ones should be a reprieve from day-to-day responsibilities, not another item on your to-do list. Fortunately, there are many solutions and upgrades to make the season a wonderful time of the year for hosts and home cooks, too.
