It’s 2020 and there’s no better time to upgrade your kitchen with new appliances. Here are the most important kitchen appliances in 2020.

Whether you’ve been thinking about it for a while or you need to replace an old kitchen appliance, you’ll find a wide selection available today.

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the most important kitchen appliances in 2020.

Important Kitchen Appliances Every Home Needs

You spend a lot of time in your kitchen. And, well, it is safe to say that you do a lot of things in your kitchen, too. You store your food and cooking items. You create delicious and healthy meals for your loved ones. You socialize with your friends. To put it simply, you regularly gather in the kitchen. Because of this, you could likely say that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home, right?

If so, then the last thing you would want to put into your kitchen is an appliance that lacks. In other words, it lacks in quality. It lacks elegance. It lacks in its usefulness. And, it lacks in its efficiency among other things.

Why would you waste your money on lack? If you want to have a kitchen that makes your life run more smoothly, gives you peace of mind, looks fantastic – and also provides you with the best service out there – then you need these important kitchen appliances.

Here are the most important kitchen appliances every home needs.


Have you ever considered what you would do without a refrigerator? How in the world would you keep your food fresh? How would you store leftovers? And no cold beverages or ice cream at home? Yikes! Well, thankfully, in 2020 we don’t have to worry about all those things. We have some magnificent refrigerators that can take care of all those things for us – and then some.

Here’s what you need – a stainless steel, French-door, a 4-door refrigerator from Thor Kitchen. Model Number HRF3603F is a 36-inch refrigerator in classic stainless steel. It is counter-depth which means it allows you to move freely around your kitchen without having anything protruding or appearing out of line. Plus, it comes with not two French doors, but four! That’s right – both the refrigerator and the freezer come with the easy-open split doors. This provides you with great views within the refrigerator and the bottom freezer.

This stylish refrigerator also comes with these great features:

  • Recessed handle for an even more sleek design.
  • Adjustable shelves that can be maneuvered easily to fit all your grocery items.
  • Automatic ice maker.
  • LED lighting for energy efficiency and a superb look.
  • Touch controls.
  • Multi airflow so the cold air can reach all areas of the unit.
  • Humidity-controlled drawers for storage.


Ok, well now that you have a way of storing all of your grocery goods, you absolutely must have a way to cook them, right? You can only eat cold cut sandwiches and raw veggies so long before it gets boring. Face it – you need a range. And, not just any range – you need a range that will not only look good in your kitchen but also be of professional quality. And, of course, you want it to be able to handle your cooking needs. Perhaps you are someone who only cooks once or twice a week. Or, perhaps you cook large meals for your large family every day. Or maybe you fall somewhere in between.

Whatever your cooking (or baking) needs, Thor Kitchen has a range for you. Model Number LRG3601U is a 36-inch stainless steel gas range. This pro-style appliance combines the durability and quality of a professional range with that look and feel of a residential range. In addition, it has some wonderful features, such as:

  • A large 6 cubic foot oven capacity.
  • Commercial convection fan for even baking.
  • Six heavy-duty cast iron burners.
  • Black porcelain drip pan for easy cleaning.
  • Gray porcelain oven interior with white flakes.
  • Halogen oven light.
  • Three layers of glass on the oven window.
  • Bottom storage drawer.

Range Hood

If you have a range in your home, then you need a range hood. This is not an option. Every time you cook on that stove, you are releasing toxins, food particles, and other debris directly into your air space. Yes, the air that you – and your loved ones – are breathing in the kitchen. But, not only that – you also receive heat, moisture, and odors from food, too. Having a range hood, however, can clean that air, leaving you with nothing but the freshest every time you cook.

Range hoods work to either take that dirty air and, through a tunnel of ductwork, deliver the bad stuff outside. Or, for the ductless range hoods, it sucks the dirty air in, filters and cleanses it, then returns the fresh stuff to your kitchen.

Range hoods are most definitely an important kitchen appliance to have. And, thankfully, Thor Kitchen has an array of beautiful range hoods to choose from. Let’s be honest – they are large and sometimes they can appear to stick out in a kitchen, but they are necessary. So, you have to do what will work best – buy a range hood that looks as beautiful as the rest of the appliances in your kitchen so that everything flows. Who knows – you may even find your range hood to be a bit eye-catching. In fact, many people have used them as focal points in their design.

Here’s one you won’t want to miss:

Model Number HRH3605U is a 36 inch under cabinet range hood. This means that it fits directly above your range but installed underneath your highest cabinets. And, it comes with the following features:

  • Illumination- Two (2) 1.5W long-life, energy-efficient LED lamps
  • Blower- 900 CFM, One (1) 7 5/8″ round duct
  • Filter type- commercial type stainless steel baffle filters
  • Type/Finish- under cabinet range hood/ stainless steel


Now that you know more about the most important kitchen appliances every home needs, you can work toward creating your dream kitchen and enjoying the time you spend in the kitchen.

There are other appliances that are important for your kitchen, too, such as a dishwasher to help you conserve water while getting your dishes sanitized (see Thor Kitchen’s Model Number HDW2401SS). But, when it comes to the arteries that flow to and from the heart of your home, your refrigerator, range, and range hood are the most important.

Because quality matters and so does appearance, consider purchasing these professional-style appliances together so that they all flow in the same finish and will always be fully functional when you need them to be.
