Do you dream of being the next contestant on a reality cooking show? Think your culinary skills could take on Chef Gordon Ramsay? You’re not alone.

There are millions of aspiring, in-home chefs who want to improve their skills. Whether you are a self-proclaimed expert or new to the kitchen, the following ideas will be sure to help unleash your inner chef.

Blend up creativity


Take your culinary skills from ordinary to extraordinary with a Vitamix Professional Series 500. It can do everything from making ice cream to grinding grains, kneading dough, making whole-food juice and even hot soup.

This model features three pre-programmed settings — Smoothies, Frozen Desserts and Hot Soups — to help home chefs make gourmet meals like the pros.


Smart and savvy storage

Many homeowners are integrating a commercial refrigerator into their kitchens to help food maintain its freshness longer. Extra-large-capacity refrigerators are available that help to eliminate the hassle of running to the store for odds and ends during the week.


Other chef-inspired features on newer models include metal cooling to help seal in flavor and maintain a constant temperature. LED lights and interactive displays also make it easy to view the current settings and update your shopping list electronically.

Hands-free innovation

Give your kitchen a functionality facelift by upgrading your faucet into the digital age with motion-activated faucets, like those with Moen’s easy-to-use MotionSense technology. MotionSense offers the ultimate in hands-free convenience. With a simple wave of your hand, filling a large pot or turning the faucet on and off has never been so easy.

The heat is on — get cooking

With the latest innovations in induction cooktops, you can stress less and enjoy your cooking experience. Newer models turn up the heat in the kitchen, allowing users to boil water in only 90 seconds. A warming feature is also available to keep your food at the right setting as you make the finishing touches to your meal before serving.
