Aura Seaside Kitchen Must-Haves

Aura Seaside features superior amenities throughout our apartment homes and community. Our contemporary kitchens are equipped with quality features like granite countertops, stainless-steel Whirlpool appliances, and kitchen islands. Here’s a list of 5 helpful items for your kitchen that reflect the elegance of our apartment homes:

#1 Oven-to-Table Baking Dishes

Home cooks most likely have those handy and hardworking aluminum baking pans in the cupboard. It’s easy to upgrade that basic pan to a stoneware or porcelain pan. While the pan serves the same purpose, the visual appeal of porcelain and stoneware pans work better for dinner parties. Dazzle guest by serving up some sweet potato casserole during the holidays in one of your new pans that are perfect for presentation.

#2 Carbon Steel Wok

When you consider the uses of a wok, you may automatically think of stir-frying. However, there are many ways to utilize this kitchen accessory. The wok heats up quickly and its high sides make it easy to pan-fry, deep-fry, steam, and smoke food. This pan is versatile and relatively inexpensive, making it a must-have for your kitchen.

#3 Mortar and Pestle (spice grinder)

Whole spices create deeper flavors. A mortar and pestle are used to grind those spices for cooking. While an electric spice grinder will give you the same results, mortars and pestles come in different colors and materials, like wood and stone, that can compliment your kitchen décor. They serve the dual purpose of utility and beauty in the kitchen.

#4 Salt Cellar

Keep the salt within reach while you’re cooking with a salt cellar. Sure, a cardboard salt box could do the job, but salt cellars come in all sorts of shapes and sizes so you can personalize your kitchen. Of course, salt cellars can also be used to store all kinds of herbs and spices.

#5 Baking Stone

Elevate your homemade pizza by cooking it on a baking stone, which absorbs heat in a way that cooks your food evenly. You can also use baking stones to make bread, cookies, and quesadillas, just to name a few options.

Beginners and experienced cooks alike will appreciate using these tools in our beautiful kitchens. Schedule a visit to Aura Seaside and find your new luxury apartment home today!
