5 Statement Pieces Every Kitchen Must Have

In our grandmom’s times, the kitchens were located in the house courtyards. However, we moved towards urbanization, and finding open spaces became a challenge, forcing planners and city developers to build housing units that were compact yet comfortable. Though kitchens moved indoors, the culinary workstation continued to occupy a significant place in the pads.


Today they have gone on to become modular, open and swish. It is a trend nowadays to do up the kitchen with modern appliances. They not only make cooking simple but also look elegant on the slab. So here are top 5 statement pieces your kitchen must have.

Food Processor

Whether you want to whip up a cake, make dough for the “chapattis” or cut vegetables for a healthy plate of salad, food processor is an essential appliance. The equipment comes with a variety of blades and attachments that make the tedious task of chopping, shredding and mincing fun. Many people buy a food processor but hardly use it. Make sure that the processor you buy is not just a novelty resting in the kitchen cabinet. Consider the number of attachments it has, and how it will ease your work in the kitchen on a day to day basis.

Juicer Machine

Processed breakfast items like cereals, breakfast bars, and packaged fruit juices have become quite popular amongst office-goers and college goers. These easy to fix breakfast menus may read healthy on the labels, but in actuality are laden with sugar and preservatives. Long-term consumption of such food can be detrimental to health, which is why it is wise to invest in a Juicer Machine. The health benefits of a freshly squeezed juice of your favorite vegetable or fruit are much more than the pre-packed ones. Moreover, Juicer Machine available these days are far more technologically advanced. One such example is the Kent Cold Pressed Juicer that retains nutrients and fibers and produces more juice. This Juicer Machine also makes less noise and is not very bulky is size. Just stack it up on the kitchen counter and enjoy a healthy glass of juice every morning.

Cooktop and Oven

Built in cooktop and oven is an essential piece for a modern kitchen. Compact and easy to use, this gas range allows you to cook traditional meals on the top, and in case you want to bake or try out exotic dishes like lasagna, pie or loaf, you can use the oven at the bottom. The advantage of cooktop and oven is that your counter top will look less cluttered and neat. And just in case you are a serial baker, a cooktop and an oven are what you need in your kitchen.

Electric Kettle

For morning tea or lemon and honey drink ritual, you need hot water. While most of us heat water on the gas stove, using an electric kettle will make things much easier. Just fill it with water and turn on the button and go about doing your thing, while the water heats up. You don’t want to worry about wasting electricity as the kettle will automatically turn off, once the water boils. The electric kettle comes with a comfortable handle that will allow you to pour water in the cup without spilling. It’s a must buy and overtime you will realize how easy it is to boil water in a jiffy.

Rice Cooker

Rice cooker is a must have in every kitchen. Although predominantly used to prepare rice, this appliance is a rather versatile piece. You can steam vegetables, dumplings and make a variety of dishes like halwa, biryani and even cook dal or boil eggs in it. The best advantage of a rice cooker is that it is an automated kitchen appliance and shuts off on its own once the rice or any other food item is cooked. It does not consume a lot of electricity and increases efficiency in the kitchen.

Kitchen appliances are built to make working in the kitchen efficient and easy. Given the hectic lifestyle, most often we shy away from cooking meals at home because cooking is perceived to be a tedious task. However, with these equipment, you will not feel the burden. So go ahead, grace your kitchen with these appliances and have fun preparing healthy, nutritious meals for your family.

PediKlear Callous Remover: Is This New Foot-Care Product Worth Your Money?

Beautiful, callous and crack free feet is something that would interest the majority of our readers, but it feels like every time a new product comes out promising them just that… it falls short. PediKlear, however, is the new device that’s been making waves in this space, but is it merely hype… or will the PediKlear Callous Remover truly give you those soft, beautiful and smooth feet you desire? We got our hands on a unit and put it through it’s paces. Let’s see what we found out.

Box Contents:

Let’s start off with the packaging and contents. Inside the white box we find:

The PediKlear Callous Remover Itself

Replacement Head

Cleaning Brush

Safety Cap

The Design

The device feels very sturdy in the hand, and it is not a surprise considering it’s water resistant feature. The casing that holds the batteries is easy to remove, but we do wish that the required batteries were included in the bundle. Anyway, moving on to the Mineral Surface Head, as PediKlear calls it, it feels quite solid and rough, but I guess it’s usefulness will only be revealed through testing. So let’s move on.



First thing to note is that the device is pretty powerful. Upon switching it on and applying it to our feet, it was evident how quickly it reduced the dry skin on our heels into a fine dust. We first tested the PediKlear after soaking our feet and performance was in fact good. While we don’t recommend that you use this device as a one time magic fix-it-all, we are happy to state that even after one time use, results were in fact visible, with our feet noticeably softer, but even more, smoother to look at.

Dry use was much the same, with even more fine dust – once hard, rough and dead skin on our feet. Results were pretty much the same as with the wet feet test, which is to say good, though your mileage may vary on the wet/dry preference. Personally, I prefer wet use.

Conclusion: Although we would have liked to test the device more thoroughly, we can in fact say that it works, and works well (which is more than can be said for a few other similar products that our staff had tried in the past). We just wish it came with its own batteries – but other than that, it just works, and the results are plain to see.

Verdict: 8.5/10. Just remember to pick up batteries as well.

Final Words: The PediKlear Callous Remover doesn’t come cheap, like some of the other entrants into this space. But that’s because it’s not like any of the other entrants. It feels premium enough, is built sturdy and is water resistant – a big plus for me personally.

And the performance is on point. In both cases of wet and dry use, results were clear and immediate. The slight tickling feeling is worth it when you see the rough, unsightly and hard skin being filed away – leaving you with feet the kind of which I’ve not personally had for a long time.

We wish that the two AA batteries required came in the box, and the price could be off-putting for some, but other than that, two thumbs up from us.

Verdict: Efficient, Great Performance. Recommended.

Pick up a PediKlear on Amazon.

Raw Honey Garlic Lemon Shots: A Simple Recipe To Supercharge Your Immune System

One criticism often received by recipes involving cooked onions, garlic and other alliums is that the heating process destroys much of the allicin that leads to its protective effects. While this is partially true, knowing how to optimize garlic before eating it raw or cooked will maximize garlic enzymes and give them the best chance to survive meal preparation. I’ll share a very simple recipe to use regularly during the cold and flu season that will supercharge your immune system.

With their unique combination of flavonoids and sulfur-containing nutrients, allium vegetables–such as garlic–belong in your diet on a regular basis. There’s research evidence for including at least one serving of an allium vegetable–such as garlic–in your meal plan every day. If you’re choosing garlic as your allium family vegetable, try to include at least 1/2 clove in your individual food portion. If you’re preparing a recipe, you should use at least 1-2 cloves.

Washington State University showed that garlic is 100 times more effective than antibiotics at fighting disease causing bacteria commonly responsible for foodborne illness. Its anti-viral potency is perhaps even more effective.

Allicin, one of garlic’s most highly valued sulfur compounds–stays intact for only 2-16 hours at room temperature when it is present in purified (extracted) form. But when it’s still inside of crushed garlic, allicin will stay viable for 2-1/2 days.

If you give your chopped/crushed garlic time to sit before changing its temperature (through cooking) or its pH (through the addition of acidic food like lemon juice), it will give the alliinase enzymes in garlic an opportunity to work on behalf of your health. For example, in the absence of chopping or crushing, research has shown that just 60 seconds of immediate microwaving will cause garlic to lose some of its cancer-protective properties.

Before cooking or adding chopped garlic to lemon juice, let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes to maximize its potency. The following recipe has minimal preparation time and maximum benefits to your health, especially during cold and flu season. I call them shots because they’re a cocktail of beneficial immune boosting constituents inside a lemon half that you can eat in just a few bites. My recommendation is to have one or two of these per day during peak flu activity when viral transmission is at its highest (usually Jan-Mar).

Raw Honey Garlic Lemon Shots

1 lemon (preferably organic) 1-2 cloves of garlic (depends on size of cloves) 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper 1 tablespoon of honey (preferably Manuka but at least Raw)

Step 1 – Cut a lemon in halves

Step 2 – Squeeze all the lemon juice out of one half and place in a small bowl. Keep the half you extracted the juice from for Step 6 (store the other half for later use)


Step 3 – Chop the garlic and it let it sit for at least 10 minutes. Then add it to the lemon juice with the cayenne pepper.


Step 4 – Add the honey to the mix and stir all ingredients well.


Step 5 – Pour the entire mixture back into the lemon half (which you extracted the juice from in Step 2).


Consume the finished product in its entirety including all the lemon pulp. Hold it in your hand and cup it as if you’re holding a fruit. Repeat recipe in 4 hours with the other lemon half.


Viruses hate this information, so spread the word.

All this leads to immense economic burden across sectors and fraction of the society. This is why health insurance policies are becoming an inherent need of time. Irrespective of one’s age and financial disposition, health insurance is important for the following 5 reasons –

You can avail the best medical facility

Most health insurance providers like HDFC ERGO have tie-up with highly reputed hospitals and multi-specialty clinics. Therefore, even if you or your loved one is diagnosed with a serious ailment, you don’t have to compromise on the quality of treatment if you own a comprehensive health plan. Additionally, several health insurance companies have started offering preventive healthcare packages as part of health insurance scheme.

These schemes allow the policy holder to undergo preventive health checkup without having to worry about high expenses involved in such screenings. The scheme offers concession of diagnostic procedures, X-rays, consultation etc. In short, health insurance policies are not only beneficial for treatment of diseases, but also play an integral role in preventing them.

Your entire family stays protected in face of a medical emergency

The family floater health insurance policy is a dedicated medical insurance product that is designed for the health needs of a family. Therefore, each and every member of a family is covered by a single policy.

The biggest advantage of a family floater plan is that the entire sum insured amount can be used for the treatment of a single family member. This is because it is highly unlikely situation wherein two family members are diagnosed with a serious condition at a given time. Since, the sum insured for a family health plan is higher; you are assured of the best medical treatment for your entire family.

You get maternity benefit, if you are planning to expand your family

These days newly married couple wait for at least 3 to 4 years before they decide to become parents. Bringing up a child in today’s world is an expensive undertaking. Right from paying hospitalization fees post and prenatal care can incur huge expenses. But, if you have a health insurance plan that offers maternity benefits you will not have to worry about such things. However, it is important to remember that health insurance policies that offer maternity benefits usually have a waiting period. Subject to variation, the waiting period is usually between 4-5 years.

Therefore, prudence calls that you should take a health insurance scheme immediately after marriage. This way you not only avail health insurance benefits as a couple, but will also be useful when you finally decide to expand your family.

Your health insurance policy continues to offer cover even after retirement

You may be covered by your corporate health insurance policy, however if you own an individual health scheme you can avail its benefits even after retirement. Group or corporate health plan stops offering any benefits once you retire. However, if you have an individual health plan, then you continue to enjoy health coverage. Some, insurance companies have started offering lifetime renewal options, which means that you don’t have to worry about health expenditure post retirement.

However, this benefit of health insurance policy can only be enjoyed by those you have procured a health plan at an early age. Therefore, health insurance policies not only take care of health needs of the present, but also in the future.

You get coverage against critical ailments

Critical illnesses like cancer, paralysis, and cardio-vascular diseases are not only life altering, the high cost of treatment and management of these ailments are a resource hungry affair. Thankfully, with critical illness plans, policy holder can get relief from the high cost involved in the treatment of these diseases.

For all practical concern, health insurance policy is an essential part of health insurance planning. A lot of people who do not believe in taking health insurance policy feel that it is an unnecessary expenditure and that they are healthy enough to be not strike down by an illness. But the rationale of health insurance is that one must take the policy when they not need one. This way the premium of your policy will be less, at the same time, you may be healthy today, but no only can predict the future. Therefore, it’s always better to be prepared for the unexpected.

8 Fantastic Ways You Can Conquer Motion Sickness Successfully


Image: Shutterstock

Before you set out for a long journey, it is necessary to avail car insurance, which is a mandate by law. And to take care of any kinds of uncalled medication costs, a health insurance policy is recommended. Apart from this, there are a few things that need to be considered before you hit the road.

A long journey may not always be fun. Headache, nausea, sweating and belching might bother some of you, but the major damper to your excitement will be motion sickness which is quite common. Though not an illness as such, it may curb your enthusiasm to travel.

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Not only will these easy steps take care of motion sickness with immediate effect, but they might also help conquer it for good!

1. Take the Wheel

You might be surprised, but when you sit in the driver’s seat, you are less prone to motion sickness. This could be on account of the fact that the brain uses all its motor commands to control the car and predict movement.

But if driving is not your thing, pick the front seat instead. If there is no option but to sit in the back seat, engage in conversation and distract yourself. At all costs, avoid reading!

2. Curb the Consumption

You must watch what you consume before you hit the road. Make sure you avoid drinking alcohol or smoking. Also, avoid eating too much food. Foods that have a strong smell, or that are heavy and spicy, must be off the radar if you want to keep motion sickness at bay.

3. You Must Equalize Those Sensory Cues

While traveling by car, you must fix your gaze at a fixed point or the horizon. This will enhance the sensory congruence, and you will feel less queasy.

4. Talk yourself into believing otherwise

Studies say that when you tell yourself that you won’t get sick during travel, and combine this ‘verbal placebo’ with breathing techniques, you will be able to calm down and feel better.

5. Take on Some Desensitizing

Indulge in activities that make you nauseous on the road. For example, if reading a book makes you uneasy, read for five minutes, put the book down, and then read again after five minutes. Slowly increase the time frequency. Over time, your body will get used to the activity, and it will help you minimize or completely get rid of motion sickness.

6. Ginger – A Savior

Studies show that ginger works wonders in cancelling out motion sickness. It is an excellent preventive measure. Pop in about 2 grams of ginger before you sit in the car. But if you are on blood thinning medication, do consult your doctor before you try this remedy.

7. Stay In Touch With the Pressure Points

There are a few points, which alternative therapies suggest you to work on if the pressure of impending motion sickness is looming in your head. It will do no harm, so it is well worth a try. Massaging the middle inner side of the forearm is said to relieve nausea and indigestion. Massaging your kneecaps, or lightly rubbing the area under your earlobes should also comfort you.

8. Only If All Else Fails – Medicate

If nothing works, you can finally run to the chemist and pick up an over-the-counter pill. Make sure you have it 30-60 minutes before you head out. It will sedate you, and you will probably sleep through the drive. However, this should truly be the last resort.

Be adventurous! Live it up to the fullest. Life is too short to be bogged down by something as trivial as motion sickness. Once you have made up your mind, these remedies should help!
