It doesn’t matter on which side of the bed you wake up on, what’s important is what you do when you get up. Breakfast should be number one on your list. After all, it is said to be the most important meal of the day and must not be skipped. 

Eating breakfast gets your metabolism working and helps burn calories throughout the day thus preventing weight gain. In connection, those who take breakfast have better energy levels and are able to do more physical activities. And with a full tummy, you’re less likely to snack on unhealthy food. Mentally, breakfast strengthens your ability to process information and focus because eating in the morning stabilizes your blood sugar. 

But not any breakfast will do, you can enjoy these benefits if you put together a meal that combines complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein and a small amount of fat. Something like a whole-grain bagel, eggs or lean meat, cheese, and a fruit drink. It doesn’t sound so complicated, does it? And your meal preparation can even be made simpler and more efficient with the right breakfast appliances. 

Italian brand Smeg has a line up that’s so pretty, it will feed your other senses as you nourish your body. 

1. Toaster


The Smeg toaster is a statement piece that adds character to any surface. But it’s not just all beauty, modern technology lies beneath its retro curves and glossy finish. The Smeg toaster has two slots that can accommodate bread of up to 30 mm thick. An average toast measures somewhere between 9.5 mm and 15.8 mm so the Smeg toaster gives you a lot of room for even the heftier types. 


It offers 6 browning levels to choose from. And it works fast, capable of achieving a light brown or level 3 toast in just 1.5 minutes. The bread automatically pops up when ready so it doesn’t require much thought and attention, which is exactly what you need in a breakfast cooker when you’re still groggy and half asleep.


The Smeg toaster has three special functions that make everything even more convenient. The defrost function makes it possible to serve bread straight from the freezer, it gently defrosts frozen bread and toasts it to your selected degree of brown. The bagel function enables you to toast only one side of a bagel or any other type of bread so you can have something that’s crisp on one side and soft on the other. The reheat function may be used for a wee bit more browning, if you feel your toast is not quite how you’d like it. But so you don’t feel you are at the mercy of these settings, there is a stop button that allows you to cancel the toasting cycle at any point. After use, just empty the crumb tray. 


The Smeg toaster is available in black, red, pastel blue, and pastel green.

2. Kettle 

In a hurry? Not to worry! The Smeg kettle is tried and tested to boil 500 ml of water in 1.5 minutes. You can have hot water for your instant coffee or oatmeal ready in a jiffy. 


It is very safe to use. Once the water boils, it automatically switches off and the power lever clicks back to its original position. Its soft-open lid eliminates any risk of burning from hot water splashes or sudden release of steam. Its anti-slip base secures it firmly. So even if you’re rushing, you can be assured of no accidents.


Its spout has a scale filter so that no sediments end up in your drink. Unlike other kettles, Smeg’s heating element is concealed. This prevents formation of limescale or the chalky buildup from calcium carbonate in hard water, which can be very challenging to clean.


The Smeg kettle has a capacity of 1.7 liters or roughly 7 cups, more than adequate for the needs of an average family. It is a very practical breakfast maker to have and it lends so much charm to the kitchen.


It comes in black, cream, red, pink, pastel blue, and pastel green.

3. Citrus juicer


If boosting your immunity is the first order of your day, then look no further than the Smeg citrus juicer. 


It is an eye-catcher with its iconic 50s design and is a joy to use! Its powerful 70W motor can effortlessly squeeze out all the juice and nutrients from lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and the like. It stops and starts upon contact of the sliced fruit to the juicing cone. The seeds are strained, the juice is collected, and with a flick of the non-drip spout, your drink is poured into your glass. Your table stays neat and clean. 


The Smeg citrus juicer is built with high-quality, non-corrosive materials that ensures optimal safety and durability. Its BPA-free Tritan components makes the Smeg citrus juicer impact-resistant. And cleaning is simple and can be done very quicky because of the light, detachable parts. 


Colors choices currently in stock are pink, pastel blue, and pastel green.


May these Smeg breakfast appliances elevate your mornings, provide you with good vibes, and make you choose to have breakfast every day.
