8 Kitchen Gadgets You NEED In Your Life

Sherwood Tenant Making Waffles in a Waffle IronCooking your own meals can be a daunting challenge at times; however, with the right tools inside your kitchen, meal prep doesn’t have to be such a hassle. But, there are kitchen gadgets that aren’t worth your money. Don’t be fooled into thinking that some of them are, because they will most likely just gather dust on a shelf. To make good use of your kitchen and everything else in it, here is our go-to list for kitchen gadgets. This is for the person who wants to make sure that their kitchen is filled with things that are truly worth their money.

  • Pressure cookers (similar to an Instant Pot) are a popular choice among many. A pressure cooker can be used to prepare meals using only half the time it takes for an ordinary slow cooker. 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 crisp skin-on fries, meats, veggies, and more without the oil of frying food. It makes for healthier food prep, and it allows you to prep foods in less time!
  • No kitchen is complete without a blender. In case you’re not into the big, bulky blenders, there are definitely smaller options like a Ninja or a Nutribullet; or, you could even consider getting an immersion blender. These blenders are smaller and easier to manage and can make individual portions, too.
  • Waffle irons are normally used to make waffles, but there are other uses for them, too. 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. Sure, a few pots and pans will get the job done, but for stir-fry, sauces, and soups, a wok is best. Their long handles let you hold it over a burner and shake and stir the food inside, heating the ingredients quickly and evenly. A wok might be challenging to use at first, but once you get past that stage, you will want to have a wok with you every time you cook.
  • If you usually consume avocados, you most likely have an avocado slicer lying around in your kitchen. When opening and slicing avocados, it’s best to be careful since they can often be slippery — especially when you use knives. 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.
  • If you’re the type to always rely on canned food for your cooking, then what you need is a trusty can opener. 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. These ones are the ones that will quickly break or fail instead of lasting you years.
  • Also, every kitchen should at least be introduced to one of the most important kitchen tools in this day and age: the swivelpeeler. It’s most useful when you are cooking potatoes, squash, carrots, or other vegetables. You need a quality peeler that will not give your hand any problems but will slice through a vegetable’s thick outer skin like butter. This swivel peeler will automatically adjust its angle according to how you hold it against the fruit or vegetable, making it very easy to peel whatever it is you’re peeling.
