15 of the best-looking kitchen countertop appliances - they're so stylish they could double as decor

From air fryers to toaster ovens, these countertop appliances are so on-trend you won't want — or need to! — put them away when you're done

Crock Pots. Pressure cookers. Air fryers. Toaster ovens. What do all of these things have in common? They're all kitchen appliances, of course, but, more importantly — for items you're meant to leave out on your counter, they're all, well, rather bland and boring style-wise. When did you last look at your friend's blender and say, "Wow, where did you get that? It looks so chic!" Maybe never!

Just because the typical countertop appliance looks a bit drab, that doesn't mean there aren't design-friendly (and still high-performing) alternatives on the market; they might just be a bit harder to find. Ahead of the sure-to-be plentiful Black Friday home sales, I've done a bit of online digging to pull out what I believe are the trendiest options from Wayfair, Target, Nordstrom, and more.
