New Year, new you? Most of us see 2022 as a great opportunity to get healthier and make more sustainable choices. And whether that’s healthier meals, super smoothies or home-brewed cappuccinos, getting the right kitchen tech could be the key to getting this year started the right way.

That’s why we took 3 examples of top kitchen tech from Sage to see if they could take on challenges including healthier takeaways and the most sustainable smoothies around!

Blend, juice, Bluice!

The Sage 3X Bluicer is what happens when you combine a powerful blender and juicer in one powerful bit of kitchen tech. Its clever Kinetix Blade & Bowl system pulls everything into the centre of the blender, meaning than you get smooth results. And you can switch up your Bluicer from a juicer to a blender in a flash.

The juicer is so powerful that it can even blend up tougher bits of fruit and veg without the need to peel them first. And the large chute means you don’t need to be wasting time hacking up your ingredients into little pieces. Plus, the jug is 1.5 litres, so you can batch make smoothies and soups.

The skin, peel or stalks of fruit and veg often gets chucked out but they can be the parts that are packed with vitamins and minerals. Why waste them when your Bluicer has the power to blend them down into one super sustainable smoothie? Check out our video for more on that.

And because there are different settings (including smoothies, cocktails and crushed ice) you can take the guesswork out of getting your fave drinks in a jiffy.

Cleaning is easy too. For everyday use, there’s an Auto-clean button. And when you want to get more intensive, you can put many of the Bluicer’s parts through the dishwasher.

Air frying and a whole lot more.

If you’re only just hearing about air frying, it may be because it’s the time of year where we’re all looking to make healthier choices. Sage's Smart Oven Air Fryer lets you keep those delicious crispy snacks we all love without all the oil.

And it's not just healthier frying. Because it can do 7 kinds of cooking in one, other appliances are in trouble. Why clutter up your kitchen work surface when you can get one clever piece of kitch tech that can be your slow cooker, air fryer, convection oven, warmer, toaster, grill and pizza oven all in one?

And it’s super easy to operate. Its LCD display always lets you know what’s going on. And when it comes to cleaning, it’s already non-stick elements (which don’t hold onto any grease) can be put through the dishwasher.

Become a pro barista at home!

Most of us love a coffee from our fave coffee shops. But whether it’s the choice of beans or disposable cup, you may not have as much control over your coffee choices as you’d like.

There’s also the idea that making more cost-effective coffees at home may not give you the quality of what a barista can knock up. But that’s definitely not the case with the Barista Pro, as we found out.

This coffee machine warms up in seconds so there’s no wait before you select your fave coffee – whether that’s a Flat White, Latte or more. And you’ll get fresh coffee every time, since the machine will only grind the dose of beans you need.
