If you are a regular visitor to real estate sites, you already know the secret to a good kitchen photo: Clear the counters of all the small appliances. Because despite their label, most toaster ovens, coffee makers, and other kitchen electronics are clunky and countertop-hogging—not to mention unattractive.
Not these. I asked our editors for their favorite truly small appliances—compact machines that get the job done, look nice while doing it, and either stow away easily afterward or look great sitting out on the counter. Here are their picks.
The Sleek and Slim Toaster Oven
The Little Processor that Could
The Stylish Rice Cooker for Two
The Neat and Tidy Hand Mixer
The Small but Mighty Coffee Maker
