You don't always need to do things the hard way. What if we told you that here at DID, we had a large selection of portable, well-priced and easy-to-use household gadgets that will help make your home life a lot easier?
Below, we have a list of 7 handy household gadgets perfect for making light work of cleaning, dinner, or home heating.
Our top 7 Must-have household gadgets
Here at DID, we love a good steam mop, not only because they are super convenient to have around the home, but because they are modern, feature-packed, and, best of all, inexpensive. With prices ranging from €50-€250, we stock brands such as Shark, Black & Decker and Nilfisk.
Why Steam Mops are handy:
Steam mops are handy for several reasons. Firstly, they use steam to sanitize and clean floors without the need for harsh chemicals, making them eco-friendly and safe for use around pets and children. Secondly, they are easy to use and require minimal effort, as the steam does most of the work. Thirdly, they are versatile and can be used on a variety of surfaces, including hardwood, tile, and carpet. Finally, they are quick-drying, allowing floors to be walked on soon after cleaning. All of these factors make steam mops a convenient and effective cleaning solution for busy households.
Key features of steam mops:
Now, the type of features that you get with a steam mop will depend on how much you are willing to pay. As with anything, the more you spend, the more likely you are to get better features or quality. However, some features worth paying an extra penny or two for include a steam blaster mode, different heat modes, adjustable size, and intelligent steam control. You can also opt for a model with a quick heat-up time, most models can be ready to use in just 30 seconds.
To be honest, we think that the term' robotic vacuum' alone is enough to get most people on board as to why it is a handy household appliance.

You might be wondering, 'what on earth can a thermostat do in my home? What is it that got it on our must-have household gadgets list?' well, it is simple. A thermostat can have a lot of different uses, and when we say thermostat, we don't mean an old-fashioned run-of-the-mill temperature checker. We mean a state-of-the-art smart thermostat like the Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation thermostat.
Coming in at between €200-250, this thermostat has it all. Not only does it help you save energy across your home, but after 7-10 days, it syncs to your home's heating and energy patterns and adjusts the heating in the way you want it. You can control the Nest from your mobile, and you will even get a monthly home report for good measure. Perfect for giving you all of the important details and figures when it comes to your home heating.
There's no need to wait, we have Humm Finance options available, and what's more, you might be paying €200 today, but you will save so much money in the long run on heating and energy, that you won't even remember the initial cost.

You can even bake, dehydrate, and roast. So you are never short of recipes to try!

Air purifiers are a modern home essential because they ensure that the air you breathe is fresh and bacteria-free, meaning you are less likely to catch any stubborn viruses again.
