As the debate regarding what we can do about the environment continues, we’re here to make that debate a little bit easier for you. Here are the 5 best green kitchen products to put your kitchen on the eco-friendly path!
First up we have the Bosch KGE36BW41G Fridge Freezer with a capacity of 304 liters.
This modern top-fridge/bottom-freezer design has been given an energy efficiency rating of A+++ by the EU, which promises the highest energy efficiency on the market, and the lowest electricity bills. It’s also fantastically compartmentalized, allowing you to store 89 liters in the freezer and 215 liter in the fridge. The fridge also comes with a 35 hour power failure safe storage guarantee, meaning that in the event of a power outage, you can rest assured that the fridge and the freezer are so well insulated that the food will remain safe for a minimum of 25 hours. And if all that isn’t enough, it even comes with anti-bacterial protection, ensuring your fridge will be free from mold and odors.
Next up we have the Hotpoint HUE61GS cooker, which is a fan-favorite ceramic double oven design in a graphite finish.
This electric cooker boasts over 100 liters of capacity between both its ovens making sure you’re always covered, even if you need to cook a turkey and bake a cake at the same time! The fan oven also cooks food evenly and thoroughly by balancing heat using air circulation, while the top oven can also double as a grill for when you’re in the mood for some barbecue. Its catalytic liners also absorb grease, making the cooker so much easier to clean. The programmable timer also stops cooking as soon as your food is ready. And best of all, this well-rounded cooker comes with an energy efficiency rating of A, making it one of the most economic options at a very competitive price!
Up next is the KitchenAId Dishwasher.
These days, dishwashers have become more eco-friendly than washing dishes by hand. Gone are the days when dishwashers wasted tens of gallons per cycle. The KitchenAid KDTM354DSS uses an impressive four gallons per cycle! It’s also self cleaning and comes equipped with a soil sensor technology that tests dishes for food levels throughout the cycle and adjusts water use accordingly. It’s also surprisingly quiet considering the amount of technology residing within that stainless steel frame, and it’s also easy on energy as well.
The Sharp R-930CS Oven is Next.
Now we all know that microwaves are far more energy efficient than conventional ovens, but what about when you need a real oven? Well, the Sharp R-930CS has you covered. This 900-watt beast looks like a conventional microwave, but it packs a hefty few tricks up its sleeve. It can fit pans up to 13″ and can be programmed for a wide variety of scenarios. It even allows two level baking with its extra racks. And if all that isn’t enough, it comes at a highly competitive price.
You may have heard of the Drumi foot-powerd washing machine and if you haven’t, now you know. This genius contraption uses very little water and zero electricity! That’s right, this has to be the most eco-friendly item on this list. It takes 5 lb of clothes per load, for which it needs only 5 liters of water, and the foot-powered monster finishes the load in just 5 minutes! And with how small it is, it’s suitable if you don’t have too much free space or for that camping trip, or even on RVs and boats! And to ensure no water is wasted, we advise you to water your plants with those 5 liters after you’re done using them to clean your clothes.
