If you’ve followed me for a while, you might have seen I have a kitchen stuffed full of super cute Hello Kitty appliances!
I started collecting Hello Kitty seriously in 2016, and when I found out you could get kitchen appliances with Kitty’s face on them, there was no other option! Here are my thoughts on her world of kitchen cute-ture:
I only started drinking coffee last summer, so I didn’t really see the use of having a proper coffee maker… But now that I’m a caffeine aficionado, Kitty helps me out doing the brew! This coffee maker is small ~ which is perfect for just one coffee drinker like me!
I make toast or a bagel every single day in the toaster, and it does its job! You do have to crank the dial to the max to see Kitty’s face appear on the bread, but it makes your day when she does pop up on your toast!
I’ve only used the waffle maker a couple times, because honestly it’s HORRENDOUS to clean. It needs to be done by hand, because obviously electrical appliances cannot be placed in the water. But the waffles are ADORABLE!
There is a similar Pancake Maker which I’ll pick up if I can find it at a super reasonable price, but it’s probably a bit redundant to have a waffle and pancake maker since they are pretty much the same thing (EEK! This seems like it could be controversial ;))
I was fortunate to thrift the Chocolate Maker because it’s $30 to buy new! In my opinion, not really worth the price tag. I pretty much just use the container as storage, but the chocolate moulds are great.
I’ll admit that I have only filled this up with water a handful of times, as it’s a bit of a pain. There isn’t a plug at the bottom so you need to carefully fill it up and maneuver it to flip it upside down which is far more trouble than it’s worth for ~8 cups of water. Additionally, I typically drink soda water (or iced coffee lately!) so it’s not really something very practical to me. But the dispenser looks cute!
On my wishlist:
I’ve had my eye on the microwave for a few years, but have had trouble finding one that will ship to Canada at a reasonable price. The microwave is TINY and has very small wattage (700 watts), but perfect if you are living in a small apartment with size restraints and only heat things up occasionally (which is not me… I freeze and defrost literally everything!)
And there are mini fridges, toaster ovens, vacuums, sandwich makers… She has a whole culinary empire!!
If you cook on any serious basis, these definitely aren’t appropriate tools. But as statement pieces, they make your kitchen experiences super kawaii!
