February 2, 2018

Having family and friends over for Chinese New Year celebration seems like a good idea... until you get to the prep work and clean up. But before you say 'no' to your guests, check out these 8 handy items that will make tidying your home a whole lot easier!

1. Power Crane King Kong

Any seasoned homemaker will tell you how hard it is to clean tough-to-reach spaces like underneath the sofa and drawer. But just wait till you get your hands on a Power Crane King Kong!

This wheeled gadget certainly lives up to its (ridiculous) name as it is capable of lifting loads of up to 300 kg, and that means you'll never need to worry about struggling with heavy furniture again. Just swivel in the King Kong's wheeled units beneath hefty items and simply move them aside when it's time for some spring cleaning.

The best kind of CNY reunion dinner menu? Steamboat and Korean BBQ! This 2-in-1 grill lets you do both at the same time. Better yet, its removable grill is dishwasher-friendly and easy to clean, making it the perfect gadget for homeowners who love the smoky taste of grilled food but hate the icky, oily aftermath.

4. Anova Precision Cooker

Home cooks have been posting rave reviews about this kitchen assistant, and for good reason. Sous vide cookers offer precise control over heat and that means you'll no longer need to second-guess cooking times for large cuts of meat.

Have a hefty slab of salmon that you want ready before you reach home? This Wi-Fi enabled device allows you to start cooking even when you're outside so you can return just in time for a delicious CNY dinner.

5. A Good Bin

There are regular trash cans (meh.) and then there are automated receptacles (wow!) like Upella's soft-closing bins. Not only do these infrared-controlled bins make cleaning up convenient, their stainless steel surfaces (with fingerprint-resistant coating!) look mighty impressive wherever they are placed in your house. Available in 3 colours - black, chrome and copper.

8. Dyson Fluffy + Cordless Vacuum Cleaner

Another way to make vacuuming handy – a cordless one!

Let's face it, dealing with cords is just tiresome, not only is there a limit to where you can reach, plugging-and-unplugging your vacuum repeatedly is just downright irritating. But with the Dyson cordless vacuum, you can quickly and conveniently clean wherever you want, whenever you wish. Plus, there's even a handheld mode, which makes cleaning stairs and tight corners easy!
