The New Home Ė Stocking the House
Are you considering moving out on your own or maybe you are getting married and you are thinking about stocking a house? Maybe you are invited to a wedding this year or one of your own children is moving out on their own. Ideas about what to purchase for the new homeowner and things that a new homeowner are going to need is what we are going to talk about in this article.¬†
One of the best things that really Ďmakes a homeí is a full kitchen, stocked and ready for cooking or baking. Stocking the kitchen is something that is going to make the entire moving process and living out on your own enjoyable and successful.¬†
If you are getting married, a fully stocked kitchen is highly useful for the two of your getting along while learning to cook and eat together often. I want to give you tips not only for stocking your kitchen, but your entire home for a real family home!
Wherever you are moving, you need to have a stove, range, or a conventional over of some type. Most all rental units do come equipped with a stove or oven of some type, but if you find you donít, this will need to be at the top of your list. When purchasing a home sometimes the stove or conventional oven will be included in your purchase price but you should review your contract before hand to be sure that you have this appliance or if you need to purchase one.
Seek out a dependable and even heating oven for cooking for best meals for in your new home. You can often find a used stove at a great price by checking in your local newspapers or you can purchase a brand new model from most larger retail outlets.¬†
Another appliance that is most always included with a rental unit is a refrigerator. Even a small sized refrigerator for two people will be great for keeping everything cold. Sometimes when purchasing a house the refrigerator will be included, but not always. Be sure to ask and review your contract before settling on the price.¬†
For the good cook, a food processor is a must have. There are so many things you can do with your food with a processor that you should get one if you donít have one already. If you are getting married, you could put on your wish list for presents without it being too expensive. One name that is famous in food processors is the Cuisinart name brand.¬†
In the days gone by, a blender was a necessity in the kitchen, but more often, the food processor is taking over all of the things that a blender does. If you are really into making shakes, or crushing ice, a blender is great but you can also do these things with a processor. The food processor takes less space in your kitchen than a blender does.¬†
Every kitchen needs a mixer to make mashed potatoes, gravy, and an assortment of other goodies like cakes, muffins, and such. If you are going out on your own, you most likely are going to treasure having an electric mixer. This is another low cost item, if you are getting married, that you could add to your wish list.¬†
What are some of the other things that are going to make a kitchen more homely and complete for the family? A juice maker, an electric wok, a popcorn maker, and a food dehydrator are some of the appliances for the new homeowners that really make the kitchen seem complete. These are all items that can be given as gifts or put on a wish list for the new homeowner or the newlyweds.¬†
One thing you might like if you are moving into a new home is a grill. Cooking outdoors when the weather is nice, and sometimes even cooking outside in the middle of winter is a great feeling. The taste you get from cooking outside on the grill is very different from cooking inside on your stove. This is one of the more expensive items that you can purchase for a newlywed or for the new homeowner; perhaps you might like to give a gift certificate if you want to give a gift of this type.¬†
For the good cook, a pasta maker, ice cream maker, bread maker and sometimes a sherbert maker are luxuries. While not every cook or homeowner is going to need one of these items, they are great for those special treats that you like to make.
