VOCAB - Kitchen Appliances & Utensils in Chinese

After the house and furniture, here are some more vocabulary about kitchen appliances and utensils. As always, I hope this helps :slight_smile:


I did not know 奶油机 Thats a great word! “Cream Machine” for blender :grinning:

Oh, one of the most important words is missing ( :rofl: :rofl:).
From the above words I knew already 洗碗机 (LTL vocab) and 咖啡机.
To describe Shanghai - once I had looked up 开瓶器。 Only the 器 was new.
And as I have learned from some witty LTL video (about the useful 这个):
for the rest, I can say 这个机 and 这个器。 :sunglasses:


Very useful! Brb… off to label my kitchen now… :slight_smile:

Hmm, both my Chinese-German friends said 奶油机 sounds like making cream only with it. One said he would say 厨房搅拌机 to the big kitchen machine.
Maybe the expression is used differently in China itself?

A lot of words tend to get shortened in China, as with most languages in fact, so this could perhaps be the reason?

Just a thought from me :slight_smile:

Thank you for sharing Sonja! We got the help from our teachers team in LTL Beijing for this vocabulary, I guess just like you said some words might be used differently in China.

Also, we need to keep in mind that some appliances we think as “common” in the West are not at all common in China, so this might be one of them. From my experience of living in Chinese homestay families, they didn’t have any appliances and tools to bake, which is common in France, but not China :wink:
