Top 10 Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets for Your Tiny Home

Top 10 Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets for Your Tiny Home

When space is limited, especially in the kitchen, creative gadgets can make life simpler and more organized. Take a look at our top picks.

As a tiny homeowner, one of the issues you face is in significantly reducing the amount of ‘stuff’ you possess from each room of the house. The kitchen, in particular, can be one room that we tend to collect extra tools that we don’t always use. If you enjoy cooking, downsizing your kitchen appliances and gadgets may be downright challenging. So, we’ve come up with 10 items of kitchen essentials that are not only useful but are also easily stored. Here we go:

1-Stackable Pots and Pans

No doubt the staple of every kitchen but gosh, do they ever take up a lot of space. Check out these pots and pans. Someone was using their head when designing them because they fit inside each other so well so that they don’t take up your entire storage space.

2-Kitchen Utensil Set

Pretty much every utensil you’d need for meal prep is in this all-encompassing set. You can display them on a pegboard or just put them in a container that sits on the counter for easy access. Check these out here.

3-Plastic Cutting Boards

What I like about this set is that it comes with a bamboo board and 7 plastic cutting mats that get stored inside the board. Brilliant! Check them out here.

4-Collapsible Colander

Any kitchen tool that can collapse for easy storage, is a win for me! Not only does this colander collapse but it’s expandable to cover the sink. I love it! Check it out here.

5-Space Saving Knife Holder

Here’s an alternative to that knife block that typically sits on the counter. Mount this to the wall freeing up counter or drawer space. View it here.

6-Collapsible Dish Drying Rack

Oh, here we go again with the collapsible tools. Gotta love it! If you’re living in a tiny home, chances are, you won’t have an automatic dishwasher so a dish drying rack will come in handy. Check it out here.

7-Magic Bullet Blender

This little number chops, mixes, blends, whips, and grinds and even comes with a recipe book. It’s so versatile and has multiple applications. Get the specs here.

8-Electric Kettle

What kitchen doesn’t have a kettle? There are kettles that sit on a stove burner but I prefer the good old electric kettle. You can check it out here.

9-Simplehuman Slim Trash Can

This trash can makes the most of tight spaces with its slender design. Its sleek look adds to the industrial décor that is so ‘in’ right now. Have a look here.

10- Portable Folding Table

O.k., so this last one may not be a true ‘gadget’ but it’s definitely ‘gadgety’ enough to be included. You have to check this out. It’s a table that folds down into a case. If you have guests over at your tiny home, all you need to do is pull this table out and call it a picnic. Brilliant design. Check it out here.
