If you love cooking, then chances are you love trying out the latest gadgets and gizmos to help you prepare all those delicious dishes. There are so many to choose from these days! Some make the more menial kitchen jobs a little easier and quicker. Others make the nearly impossible much more practical to achieve. From motorized carving knives to smoothie blenders – we’ve all had a go at one or two. Have you any favorites?
For those that strive to live a healthy life, the healthy diet is essential. Preparing fruit and vegetables is what puts many of us off from eating our five a day. Thankfully, there are plenty of gadgets out there to make life a bit easier. There are automatic fruit squeezers for fresh, zesty juice. There are electric food blitzers for a whole-fruit smoothie (and the odd nut butter). If you’re just looking to peel an apple, there are machines that will create one long spiral of fruit skin for you too. Aren’t they all a pain to clean!
Aside from preparing fresh produce, you may have the odd gadget to cook it too. We’ve all had a microwave at least once in our lives, although some people strive to live without one these days. There are plenty more ways to heat and cook food. Steaming is very popular as it preserves so many of the nutrients. The trouble is evacuating the steam! With the excess moisture comes the smell of everything you’re cooking, from fish to broccoli. Needless to say, steamers are best used with open windows.
If you love the crunch and flavor of deep fried foods, you might be on the lookout for a device that offers the taste without the fat. There are several options available, and you can visit here for more info on some of the ones out there right now. When you’re searching for the healthiest approach, it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Steam, baking, and low oil frying can deliver the taste as well as the texture you want. Why not experiment with different approaches to see which is best for you?
For those that love the healthy approach, why not invest in an oil sprayer or spritzer? Rather than drizzling from a bottle, or bathing your food in tablespoons of oil, you simply spray. This delivers very little oil, but excellent coverage – just enough to cook with a crispy coat. Have you ever used any apps for your cooking? Why not check out your app store to find some?
Of course, it’s not just the health conscious that can enjoy awesome gadgets and gizmos in the kitchen. If you love cocktails, then a refrigerator with built-in ice chipper is a must! They deliver a whole cup of crushed ice ready for your spirits and syrups (and half a strawberry) to be added. Many also deliver cubed ice. This is perfect for those drinks on the rocks too. If your kids love slushies, then a homemade drink topped with fruit juice makes the best option available. What do you have in your kitchen that you simply couldn’t live without?
