Christmas is less than a month away! One great thing about living in Malaysia is the abundance of food during any festival. Christmas has its own set of traditional food and desserts which everyone looks forward to at the end of the year. When it comes to Christmas cooking, homecooked and freshly baked is always the best. With still a few weeks left to go, there’s plenty of time to whip up some delightful Christmas goodies in your kitchen! Here are 5 tools you’ll need to bake and cook up a storm this Christmas:
1. Cute Cookie Cutters
Elevate a simple chocolate chip or butter cookie by using adorable cookie moulds (or cutters) that fit in perfectly with the Christmas theme! It can also be a fun activity for you and your kids as you mould and decorate delicious cookies for the festive season. There are several cookie mould types such as silicone, metal, and impression moulds.
2. Toaster Oven
As an expat, you may have noticed that houses and condos here don’t normally come with built-in ovens. If you don’t have one, it can be a costly addition if you’re only here on a temporary basis. That doesn’t mean you have to give up on baking though! Most traditional Christmas food require an oven for roasting and baking. An electric oven (also known as a toaster oven) such as this Panasonic Oven Toaster on Senheng’s website is a perfect solution as it’s affordable, will fit in easily in a small kitchen, is easy to clean, and it can be used to cook and bake unlimited goodies. Check out their other appliances too as there are discounts up to 60% on up to 100 products for the festive season!

3. Kitchen Stand Mixer

The Faber 4.0L Stand Mixer from Senheng is only RM699 at member’s price (retail price is RM899), and comes with a dough hook and 6 Speed Rotary Switch Control With Pulse, so you can truly whip everything up with ease! For a more basic option, check out this Panasonic Stand Mixer for only RM166 at member’s price (retail price is RM170).
4. Muffin Baking Tins
For a change, why not bake little cupcakes or muffins instead of full-sized cakes this Christmas? Muffin tins are easier to bake and clean as you use paper cups, and they’re perfect for individual servings. Not to mention, they always look beautifully presented! It also saves you some time from slicing cakes into perfect serving sizes as well. For the kiddies, there are even mini muffin tins for even more adorable little cupcakes.
5. Food Processor
A food processor is a must for those who cook and bake alot, and want to cut down on preparation time. Whizz your ingredients into flavourful sauces, make breadcrumbs easily, and process biscuits for a cake base in no time at all. You can even make your own peanut butter, grind oats into oat flour, and mince your own meat with a food processor! Check out this Panasonic Food Processor on Senheng’s website for only RM310.
