8 Kitchen Gadgets You NEED In Your Life

Franklin Lakes Tenant Making Waffles in a Waffle IronIf you are just starting your own journey of cooking your own meals, a good thing to take note of is that you will want to have the proper tools in your kitchen to make meal prep so much easier. However, that doesn’t mean that all kitchen gadgets are bang for the buck. You may think some of them are, but they’ll only eventually gather dust on the shelf. When it comes to your kitchen, it deserves only the most useful and worthy kitchen gadgets. Here’s a few of them! This is for those who want to make sure that their kitchen is packed with all the essentials.

  • Pressure cookers (similar to an Instant Pot) are at the top of the list for a reason. Why go for the ordinary slow cookers when you can use a pressure cooker to prepare a meal in half the time? Busy schedule? No problem! Use a pressure cooker to get that home-cooked meal served in no time.
  • Air fryers are small, concentrated ovens that produce a crisp skin-on fries, meats, veggies, and more without the oil of frying food. It’s definitely a healthier way to cook, and it allows you to prep foods much faster than usual.
  • No kitchen is complete without a blender. However, if you don’t want the ones that are big and bulky, you can always go for smaller blenders like a Ninja or Nutribullet, or even an immersion blender These blenders are smaller and easier to manage and can make individual portions, too.
  • While a waffle iron is great for waffles, that’s not all they can be used for. You can cook hash browns, omelets, grilled cheese, and even cookies in a waffle iron. A waffle iron is a great multi-purpose tool you’ll use often!
  • A wok is a sauté pan that has a rounded bottom and smooth sides. A few pots and pans will get you by, but a wok will make it easier for you if you plan on making stir-fry, sauces, soups, etc. Their long handles let you hold it over a burner and shake and stir the food inside, heating the ingredients quickly and evenly. It might take you a while to practice using your wok, but once you get used to it, you won’t want to be without one!
  • If you usually consume avocados, you most likely have an avocado slicer lying around in your kitchen. Opening and slicing avocados can be challenging at times because avocados are slippery. The last thing you want to happen is a knife accident when slicing! An avocado slicer is the safer way not only to open an avocado but to remove the pit and shell and create perfect-sized slices, too.
  • A can opener is a very basic but essential tool for your cooking in the kitchen; especially when you’re big on canned food. It’s good to get one that is a good mix of quality and affordability. Going for the cheaper can openers will have their own drawbacks. It’s common for these to easily break or fail. It’s wise to invest in one that will last you years.
  • Every kitchen deserves to have a swivel peeler, too! If you don’t have one yet, you should get one soon. It comes in very handy when you’re cooking potatoes, squash, carrots, or other vegetables. It’s a quality peeler that will fit well in your hand while slicing through a vegetable’s thick outer skin as if it’s nothing. A swivel peeler will automatically adjust to the angle of your wrist, giving you a very efficient and effective way of peeling.
