Five appliances to have in a small kitchen The Del Tongo Scooter Snack Bar is a sliding work table attached to the main kitchen counter on a track. You can keep it 'parked' neatly at the end, over the set of side cabinets to save space; slide it along the counter to where you are cooking; or use it as a breakfast bar for two. Price: from HK$40,000, depending on the dimensions and material used. From Kitchens + Interiors, shop 102, Ruttonjee Centre, Central, tel: 2810 0979. The in-shelf LED lights by Euro Cucina mean you no longer have to squint to see what's hidden in the back of your pantry. Each light strip (with three wide LED units) operates on a sensor, turning on when the door opens and off when it shuts. Each strip costs about HK$3,500 for materials and installation.
