Holidays can be a stressful time of the year. Between shopping, spending time with loved ones, and staying focused on goals, the last thing we want to think about is what to make for dinner. We have put together a list of must have kitchen gadgets going into 2020. With these top 10 gadgets, cooking will be more efficient and more enjoyable, especially during the holidays.
P.S. They make great gifts as well!
1. Instant Pot
This one is a must for the on-the-go person in your life (maybe it’s you). An Instant Pot is a multi-cooker that does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, and so much more! It's a single appliance that does the job of several other kitchen appliances or tools.
The perfect way to make your favorite “fried” food without all the oil and fats that come along with it. An Air Fryer works by circulating hot air very quickly around all of the food, creating a crispy “fried” look and feel to the food.
A tool used to extract juice from fruits, herbs, leafy greens, and other types of vegetables. It crushes, grinds, or squeezes the juice out of the pulp. Giving you all the nutrients and benefits you need during this stressful time of the year!
Measuring out your food is the perfect way to ensure you are staying on track with your diet and making sure your body gets all of the fuel that it needs. Just place your food on the scale and let it do the rest of the work! Easy, simple, and quick!
You may be thinking... what in the world is a Bluapple?? Don’t worry, we were too when we first heard about it, but now it is a must! There is nothing worse than buying fresh produce to try out a new recipe only to find out your produce went bad in the fridge! The bluapple extends the life of your fruits and vegetables by absorbing ethylene gas; this will keep your produce fresher longer and will also absorb odor from your refrigerator.
Know you are going to have a busy week ahead of you? Meal prepping is the way to go then! Easy grab ’n’ go meal that requires no work besides maybe heating up during the week. These containers are a life-saver!
Whether it’s peppers, onions, or tomatoes that you need to be chopped up, a vegetable chopper will get the task done. A vegetable chopper makes cooking much easier and faster, especially if you are on a strict schedule. Gets the job done in one quick movement. A must for all the holiday cooking ahead of you!
Are your hands dirty or full while trying to cook? Google Home, or Alexa, is there to save the day. It can give you measurement amounts and recipe replacements. Just say “Hey Google” or “Hey Alexa” and all your cooking questions will be answered!
Traditional dish sponges and rags hold so much bacteria and germs in them. Let’s throw out those sponges now and switch over to a silicone dish sponge. These sponges are eco-friendly, easy to use, and don’t hold onto germs/bacteria/odors as regular sponges do.
Missing the taste of something fresh off the grill in the summer? Live in a place where snow stops you from getting out to your grill? Then an indoor grill is a way to go! These can be faster and safer than your typical outdoor grill.
