From pots, pans, or cutlery to gadgets, tools and doodads, whatever the item I need it lol. Everyone needs a certain amount of equipment in their kitchen but what ones doe we really need? There are so many gadgets, tools and appliances on the market these days it is hard to know what is really a necessity.
How do we figure which will make what was once a mundane task in the kitchen quick and effortless. How do I know this does what it says. So many tools so many questions.
If you spend hours in the kitchen prepping your meals and would love the chance to shave some of the time off, would you want to know? I bet you would, right?! Here are some kitchen gadgets that will help make prepping and cooking your food a thousand times easier so that you can spend more time enjoying your delicious food.
Ever have one of those days when you really can’t be bothered to cook? Everyone does at some point or another! Enter the slow cooker. They’re so simple to use, and you can leave them cooking your food all day!
Simply pop in a bunch of ingredients and put the setting on low in the morning. Come dinner time, you’ll have a delicious and homemade meal with next to no effort and minimal washing up. From slow cooked roasts to wings or Chili, there really isn’t much you can’t do with a slow cooker.
A fairly new gadget that’s entered the scene lately is the air fryer. People are more conscious about deep fat frying their food these days – and rightly so! An air fryer can cook a multitude of foods such as chips, fish, meat, and pastries with minimal or no oil needed – it’s completely up to you.
A great dish to try in an air fryer is air fryer chicken wings for tender and moist chicken with a crispy skin that will tantalize your taste buds.
A gadget I never thought I needed, until I had it. The rice cooker can be used for rice or even as a mini slow cooker. A true two fer one deal if space is at a premium.
The all in one appliance, that does it all. It will slow cook, saute, cook rice, steam and even keep foods warm. I have just discovered the number one ultimate family helper, well maybe number two after Kent.
Prepping food for meals can be monotonous, especially if you’re cooking food in batches. You can now buy a multi-tool prepping kit that will make chopping, slicing and dicing a considerable amount faster – with less blades to worry about washing up! Many of these kits also come with handy storage containers to help prevent any food waste.

Finally, fitting food into your freezer can be annoying, especially when some products come in boxes and others in bags. With a vacuum sealing machine, not only will you be able to fit more into your freezer, but it allows you to proportion food before freezing. Perfect if you cook your food in batches and freeze it for a later date!
As you can see, these kitchen gadgets could change your life for the better! Do you have a favourite gadget or tool to share? I am always on the hunt for fun additions to my kitchen. And maybe I just ordered a soup blender and a smoothie machine, stay tune for a fun review. Yep January and Amazon have become besties in my house. Kent is ready to cut up my card lol.
