Aldi Specialbuys are our holy grail and this week's range of kitchen essentials hasn't disappointed. Whether you're looking to re-stock your kitchen with fab new appliances or you're on the hunt for the perfect kitchen kit to send your teen off to uni with, this is the place to be. 

Seriously, we're aficionados when it comes to bagging high quality bargains and Aldi seldom lets us down. Their kitchen buys are always a hit for the way they balance modern technology with retro style (check out the Ambiano range below to see what we mean). As it all landed in store yesterday, you can head down to the sacred Aldi aisles and have a gander at all they have to offer now. You can also order a lot of it online. However, be wary that Aldi (the gift that keeps on giving) is no secret and their stock sells out fast! For this reason, we've listed some similar buys that you can snatch up right now. Check them out, then see our deals hub for more bargains.

1. Terrazzo Kitchen Scales, £4.99

These kitchen scales sold out super quickly on the website. For under a fiver we're not alone in thinking that these scales – with touch sensitive controls, LCD display and 5kg capacity – pretty impressive. We love the trendy Terrazzo design, too! The Japandi Spot Kitchen Scales, £4.99 are also pretty cool on the design front and can be pre-ordered day.

2. Ambiano Retro Toaster, £19.99

We're kind of living for this retro range that Aldi stocks. Obviously it goes without saying that a toaster is an absolute kitchen staple and this model, kitted out with six settings, a self-centering function, a removable crumb tray, cord storage, reheat, cancel and defrost functions and two slice capacity is a no-brainer buy at just £19.99! Available in black, charcoal and cream.

This cream coloured microwave is cute and simple, making it an ideal purchase for a university student looking to pimp their kitchen with some trendy but budget essentials. There are six microwave power levels, digital control, an LED display to show the selected program and cooking time, 8 pre-set programs and more. You can't really go wrong with this microwave, especially at that price.

One side is ribbed and the other is smooth, both with a non-stick coating and completely dishwasher safe. Enjoy!

Packed with a small, medium and large bowl, this set is dishwasher safe and super stylish.
