When it comes to your kitchen collection, there are the items every person needs and then there are the items that every person wants. Unsurprisingly, it's those latter products -- the pasta makers, the fryers, the breadmakers, and tea brewers -- that tend to be expensive luxuries. They are the products that could complete a kitchen, but often get placed on the back burner, so to speak, in favor of more necessary appliances and other expenses.

Which is why they are absolutely ideal for employers to offer as incentive awards.

Consider the Philips Viva Collection Pasta and Noodle Maker from Power Sales. This compact device can easily stow anywhere in the kitchen, and it's perfect for the pasta connoisseur. It can craft three types of pasta: spaghetti, fettucine, and penne. It's also a breeze to use, automatically mixing and kneading dough to ensure top quality pasta. 

Want to experiment? Philips encourages users of the Viva Pasta Maker to add their own ingredients, to optimize each batch of fresh pasta to their liking. So, if your employee is the sort of foodie who wants to dispense with dry pasta and wants an easy way to make it himself, the Viva Pasta Maker is a great place to start.  

PMC/Almo carries Breville's One-Touch Teamaker, for those who are particularly discerning about the quality of their brews. This device lets users set different programs for different types of teas, regulating water temperatures and steep times. So, if your winner is the sort of person who wants a specific taste and aroma from his tea, then this is the perfect brewer. 

But maybe your resident gourmet has a savory tooth and prefers her food battered and fried. For her, there's the Cuisinart 4-Quart Deep Fryer from Rymax Marketing Services. Fries, onion rings, chicken, vegetables, and donuts -- dump it all in and cook it up in sizzling oil. The 4-Quart Deep Fryer comes with two small and one large baskets, and its bells and whistles include a digital temperature display and a time display. And at four quarts, it's the perfect size for entertaining parties of people -- or simply for feeding the family.

For the aspiring baker in the office, there's the Breville Breadmaker with Automatic Nut and Fruit Dispenser, also available through PMC Almo. This easy-to-use device can create different types of bread, including gluten free, and crafts loafs in four different sizes. The fruit and nut dispenser also releases necessary ingredients into the dough.
