8 Kitchen Gadgets You NEED In Your Life

Taunton Tenant Making Waffles in a Waffle IronIt can be very intimidating when you’re just starting to cook your own meals. It can be very helpful to have the appropriate tools in your kitchen so that your meal prep goes smoothly. But, there are kitchen gadgets that aren’t worth your money. You might think that they’re all good, but the reality is that most of them just might spend their time collecting dust. To make good use of your kitchen and everything else in it, here is our go-to list for kitchen gadgets. 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 most certainly a need for every kitchen out there. Why go for the ordinary slow cookers when you can use a pressure cooker to prepare a meal in half the time? Even on busy days, a home-cooked meal is still an option because of a pressure cooker.
  • 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 do a great job of making waffles, but they can do a lot more than just that. 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. Honestly, a few pots and pans are typically enough for most people. But, if you intend to make stir-fry, sauces, soups, etc., then a wok is what you really need. 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 avocados are your thing, then you need an avocado slicer for your kitchen. Avocados can get quite slippery. Hence, when opening and slicing them with knives, be very careful. 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 another basic need for every kitchen, especially if you’re the type to always rely on canned food in your cooking. You want to get one that’s a mix of good quality and affordability because the cheaper can openers will end up costing you more in the long run. It’s common for these to easily break or fail. It’s wise to invest in one that will last you years.
  • Another essential addition to your kitchen would be a swivel peeler. Cooking with potatoes, squash, carrots, or other vegetables will be so much easier with one around. 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.
