Whipping up a good meal at home doesn’t always have to be boring when you have a kitchen that is full of character. It can become mundane when you are facing the same silverware, discoloured pots and pans, and plain white ceramic teacups all the time. Just as we often value the eclectic décor and ambience of a fancy restaurant, the same excitement applies when we add a little spice into our kitchen life.
AVENUE ONE has curated a list of our favourite adorable and stylish kitchen products and hopefully these will add some laughter and fun in your kitchen.
1. Kakao Friends Apeach Toaster
Fans of Kakao Friends, rejoice! Not only does the two-slice toaster come with a 34mm thickness (which means you can even chuck in slightly chunkier bread slices), the gadget also lets you choose two different Apeach expressions to be “imprinted” onto your slice of bread! If this isn’t next-level cute, we don’t know what is…
Currently only available on the official Kakao Friends webstore for approx. S$58.22 (KR₩49,000). Unfortunately, it is only available for domestic delivery for now which means you can only procure it if you have friends or family living in South Korea or if you or someone you know is travelling to the country for business matters.
