6. Multi Purpose Food Slicer (多功能切菜神器)
If the mini electric grinder is too small, the multi purpose food slicer is an must-have in your inventory.

10. Instant Hot Water Dispenser (即热式饮水机)
Imagine you are hungry at night.
You want to fix a piping bowl of instant noodles or a cup of hot milo, to find that there is no hot water in the kitchen.
That is when you need a instant hot water dispenser. And it is probably one of our favorite household gadgets bought online.
As it requires a first few seconds to warm up, it doesn’t actually produce 100°C of water. Despite that, 95°C is more than enough from cooking noodles and brewing coffee.
On top of that, if you are a firm believer of drinking warm water, this dispenser is perfect for you. You can adjust the water temperature you want, instead of waiting for the boiling water to cool down.
We loved it so much that we got another one for our bedroom.
Buy on Taobao (Approx. S$80)
