I want to share with you some of my favorite kitchen gadgets. I spend a lot of time in my kitchen, especially on the weekends. Although, my family probably wonders why there aren’t more meals during the week. Most of the time I spend in the kitchen is for prepping of items. Many of my lunches are prepared from prepped and frozen foods.
Over time, I have come to love and rely on many kitchen gadgets. Following are some of my favorite items.
The Instant Pot is one of my favorite new appliances. It is an electric pressure cooker that can cook full dinner in under an hour. The Instant Pot also works great for quickly making rice, oatmeal and cooked ground beef. I freeze cooked ground beef in freezer bags and then use later for making meals like sloppy joes, taco and spaghetti sauce.
I use a kitchen scale whenever I am prepping food for the week. I measure out 4 oz of chicken or other protein for my lunches and freeze for individual servings.
I love the immersion blender for blending liquid. It works great for my bulletproof coffee.
Everyone needs a blender. I have had a Ninja blender for years and still love it. The Ninja works great for everything from smoothies to making marina sauce. It thoroughly blends and chops everything inside.
Being a garlic lover – I couldn’t live with this little handy item. This will allow you to put garlic into every recipe without the need to peel and chop. Just put the entire clove inside and squeeze. The peel is left inside the garlic press to just discard.
This is another item that receives a lot of attention in my kitchen. For years I didn’t have a food processor and now I don’t know how I lived without it. This Cuisinart has been a great addition to my kitchen. I love to make peanut butter in this.
Every probably has an apple slicer in their kitchen but his one is different. I love it because this one will pop out all the apple slices.
This is a another kitchen standard but I absolutely LOVE this measuring cup. I have it in several sizes.
This is another kitchen essential but this one is my favorite. It is nice and sturdy and provides a non-slip surface.
