Top 25 Kitchen Ideas in September

From Streamlined Smoothie Makers to Automated Tea Brewers

— September 30, 2018 — Art & Design
While most people associate their kitchens with whipping up breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the September 2018 kitchen trends reveal that kitchens are now home to an increasing number of drink-making appliances. From coffee and tea, to smoothies and pressed juices, many people are preferring to prep at home than hit the coffee shop.

When it comes to caffeinating, consumers are going way beyond a tradition drip coffee maker or tea bag. For instance, the The 'NowPresso' portable espresso maker boils water and brews java for quick and easy espresso drinks at home. Similarly, the Tea Machine by Elisabeth Morris is completely automated, so you can enjoy a fresh cuppa in just minutes.

Beyond coffee and tea, the September 2018 kitchen trends reveal that consumers are also upgrading from blenders to smoothie-specific machines. For instance, the Avazzy uses packets of frozen puree to make instant smoothies at home.
