This is a contributed post. She’s here to talk about a few kitchen appliances that help you save time. You guys know I love to cook. I actually own all of these appliances, and I have to say that I couldn’t function without them, especially the microwave. I know some people do not like to use microwaves, but I do a lot of leftovers, so it is really helpful.
Here’s what she has to say-
When it comes to great meals that the whole family can enjoy, then you want to make the cooking process as easy as possible. No one wants to spend hours on meals when there are much better things you could be doing, so you want products that can make the kitchen a better place.
Here is a list of some of the items that will help you save time in the kitchen. There are endless gadgets out there, so we’ve compiled a list to help you decide which ones you want in your home.
A microwave is such a useful tool for any kitchen, and it means mealtimes can be completed in minutes. If you have leftover food that has previously been frozen, you can defrost it in the microwave and then cook quickly, meaning you’ll have less food waste and more time. If you know in advance that you have a busy week, you could also stock up on a few healthy microwavable meals that cook in less than 5 minutes.
It is a great tool for those times when you just won’t have the luxury of spending hours in the kitchen, or when you have plans after dinner and don’t want to be stuck with the washing up.
Blend Tech Blender
A blender is a great item to have as it can be used for so many different purposes. It is a fantastic way to save on food waste as you can blend any leftover vegetables and make soup. You can do the same with fruit that has gone past its best as it will make a lovely smoothie.
There are countless ideas and recipes online, and they are so quick and easy to use. You could also look at soup kettles if you love to make your own as they do all the hard work for you.
Lava Rock Oven
If you find you don’t often use the oven, then maybe you should reconsider. You can cook fresh meals quickly and often in one roasting pan, which cuts down on the cleaning up afterwards. Trying roasting chicken or vegetables, or maybe use a lava rock oven to get steaks cooked to perfection.
If your household runs on caffeine, then consider investing in a coffee machine. The machines heat up quickly and provide great tasting coffee at the touch of a button. It means you don’t need to store jars of coffee or pints of milk anymore, as most coffee machines use pods with milk already inside. Some coffee companies even sell hot chocolate pods, so there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
If you love to bake, then an electric whisk is a must-have. They work so quickly and cut down on the amount of effort required to whisk, which means no more aching arms! You won’t have to worry about lumpy cakes again, so you’ll have more time to spend decorating it. You can also use it if you are making soups, as the whisk will blend the soup perfectly without the need for a blender if you find yourself struggling for worktop.
