Hot Kitchen products to dropship in 2020 and 2021
With the lockdown still in place and an unfortunate announced second wave of COVID-19 hitting most of the countries in Europe, part of USA/Canada, and the rest of the world, the small kitchen appliances are flying off the shelves.
People are buying these to improve their indoor lives, so there’s no surprise as to why the kitchen tools are so sought after.
Here are several categories of products you should test in order to see if you’ve found yourself a winner for dropshipping:
Every morning people want to have a healthy breakfast with their families. A good toaster is a must, so check out those smart toasters controlled via mobile phones or at least very easy to use, with only one button.
The toaster must have double-sided baking so you don’t need to put a lot of effort into it.
Fruit and vegetable cutter
A product that solves a problem is something people can see themselves buying. This is why As Seen on TV products have done so well historically, for example. Often times, they have taken problems and made cool gadgets that solve these simple problems that people face at home.
An all in one tool that lets you cut any food with ease while holding the ingredients that you’ve just chopped can be a hot item nowadays (and not only). Just do your own advertisement campaign and you may have a winner!
Stainless Steel Electric Kettles
Electric Kettle is always helpful when your gas goes off, or if you just prefer it faster.
Everyone must have an electric kettle at least for an emergency purpose. The best part of the product is that it is stainless steel that means there will be no issue of rusting even if exposed to humidity.
Check out the capacity of the kettle and how fast it boils the water, plus the guarantees and safety measures. The size of the product is also important and, last but not least, its design.
Who doesn’t like to have a healthy start to your mornings with a glass of freshly squeezed full of vitamin juice?
Let go of those bulky juicer-grinders and make way for an electric juicer – this is the future! Most of these fruit juicers work on a strong battery and the capacity should be of a minim 250 ml. It should be easy to carry and small enough, with good materials that do not negatively affect your health.
Easy to use knife sharpeners
Every time your cutting knife loses its sharpness, it affects your efficiency in the kitchen and it can really frustrate you.
To avoid those time-consuming trips to local shops to get your knives sharpened, there are innovative products in the market: handheld electric knives chargers.
The sharpers have variable motor speed from high to low and you can adjust the angles to sharpen your knife in any shape you want. Check for the in-built scissor guide which is suitable for sharpening pocket knives, hunting knives, kitchen knives, and fish knives, for those more or less lonely trips on the lake.
Other families of products you could dropship with success are easy to use mops, bubble cleaners which help you in cleaning the dishes, faucet boosters for that extra punch of your water flow, cutting boards, silicone food lids that don’t let the food spill, portable blenders or even fancy dishes and wine glasses for those romantic evenings.
Tips to best Dropship Kitchenware
- Know your Expertise: There are several types of business in kitchenware – making the product, manufacturing it, wholesale and drop shipping.
Before you set your own kitchenware business, make sure you are aware of what are you an expert at. It takes a lot of time and money to set your business so it is always better to invest where you are sure you will keep up with your claims and promises because in the end customers will purchase from you only if you provide them good quality and better services.
- Stay True with Your Promises: All companies have missions and vision to maintain the standard of their business – and this goes beyond drop shipping or kitchen items. The most said thing by companies is fast delivery and better services. You must always try to deliver the product as soon as possible and the product must not be damaged or misplaced. These small things will help to retain your customers and attract customers. If you are not able to stay true to your company’s mission and vision you will lose customers. In case you not able to deliver the product on time it is always better to communicate and update your customer.
Ready your stock!
- Have Ready Stock: You must always update your stock because there are many customers who shop regularly or in large stock. You must have the stock ready so it will be easy for you to send out the products. If you do not have stock ready there will be a delay in the delivery of the product. When you’re dropshipping, you need to constantly stay in touch with your providers and update your clients accordingly if there are announced delays.
- Maintain Good Relationship with Vendors: Always try to maintain a good relationship with vendors. Before getting in contact with any vendor you must make sure to know the background of the vendor to avoid any future inconvenience. Check its ratings, the comments, the variety of products it is selling, and personally get in touch.
Maintaining a good relationship with vendors will also help in promoting your business. Like for example, if the vendor puts your products forward whenever a customer wants to purchase any kitchenware, it will help in branding your business as well.
- Try Different Strategies: Do not hesitate to try different techniques for selling your products. For example, if you know anyone in the area or community (online or offline) who have some doubts or questions about kitchenware you can help them by telling them about your kitchenware products.
