Elevate your kitchen and dining room with contemporary cookware and dinnerware. For dinner parties and meals enjoyed solo or with family, a well-equipped kitchen is a necessity. The best kitchen tools, kitchen gadgets, and small kitchen appliances marry form and function. Some small appliances are purely utilitarian, while others are functional design objects that are useful and also look beautiful when displayed on your kitchen countertop. Consider the areas in your kitchen that could benefit from upgraded cooking tools, such as an all-purpose large saucepan and cutting board. Also consider which kitchen appliances need an upgrade to deliver greater efficiency and beauty.

HOW TO CHOOSE KITCHEN & TABLETOP ESSENTIALS
Start with the basics.
First, choose a versatile tableware set made for everyday use. Look for dish sets complete with plates, bowls, and a set of drinking glasses. To create an eclectic tabletop, select pieces that can be mixed and matched. Alternatively, if you prefer a more uniform and traditional table setting, opt for a complete set with matching dinner plate, salad plate, and bowl. Finish off the look with matching glassware sets or choose one-of-a-kind drinking glasses in a variety of materials and colors. Also explore matching sets of flatware – including forks, spoons, and knives – that contribute to a cohesive tabletop.
Assemble a collection of useful tools and gadgets.
When it comes to choosing contemporary kitchen gadgets, prioritize multifunctional gadgets and visually appealing cooking tools you won’t mind displaying on the table or countertop. Choose tools and gadgets that will fill holes in your kitchen’s existing supplies. Look for pieces that will help cut down on kitchen prep time and contribute to a cleaner, more streamlined kitchen.
If you’re looking for essential small kitchen appliances, HAY carries a range of colorful yet sophisticated designs, including a toaster, juicer, and electric kettle that are as beautiful as they are useful. HAY also offers other functional items, such as oven mitts, dish racks, and potholders to round out your collection of kitchen tools.
When it comes to hosting, serveware is just as important as place settings and kitchen tools. Set the table with a sculptural water pitcher, oil and vinegar vessels, and salt and pepper grinders so that your guests have easy access to necessities when dining. Contemporary cookware and dinnerware can help you feel equipped to entertain on a whim.
Prioritize storage and organization.
Without the right storage and organization solutions, even the most well-equipped kitchen can look cluttered. Cleaning and organizational supplies, such as storage crates, tins, dish racks, dish towels, and more can help you keep your kitchen in working order. At HAY, shop kitchen storage and organization solutions that combine form and function for a clean and well-ordered kitchen.
Express your personal taste and style through your serveware and tableware. If you prefer a traditional or formal aesthetic, opt for fine china. On the other hand, if you prefer a more laid-back table setting, consider contemporary dinnerware sets of porcelain dishes that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. At HAY, shop colorful kitchen accessories and tableware that instantly add playful charm to your table or countertop.
