Non-Toxic Kitchen Appliances

If you are on a mission to stock your kitchen with non-toxic kitchenware, chances are you have also thought about replacing some of your small appliances with new models that tick the non-toxic box. But before you throw away a perfectly well functioning gadget just because it has plastic components that may come in contact with food, try to put the potential health risks of using that machine into perspective. The fact is, small appliances such as blenders and food processors often hold food only for a brief moment, which means there is little time for toxic chemicals like BPA to leach into your food.

That said, if you use the container on your blender/food processor to also store foods, or if the small appliance in question is used to heat foods or liquids (think electric kettles, for example), then getting a new machine made with safer/healthier materials like stainless steel or glass makes much more sense. Also, a machine that is old and scratched may no longer be safe for use. Below you'll find a list of small appliances perfect for a non-toxic kitchen, sorted by category.

If you are looking for a blender with a jug that's made of glass, stainless steel or BPA-free plastic, here are some products you might want to consider:
