How many hours (or minutes) do you spend in the kitchen prepping food, cooking, doing the dishes, or attending to other tasks every day? Do you feel a bit slowed down and are looking for ways to speed such tasks up?
Well, the good news is that there are numerous tools out there that can help you save tons of time on kitchen tasks while making your life easier and your kitchen much more appealing. In some cases, the best tool to buy will depend on your actual needs and preferences but the need for some of these tools is almost universal. Having said this, let’s count down some of these tools together below!
Whether you cook regularly or you’re fond of ordering takeouts, one thing is for sure. You will occasionally need hot or warm water for drinking or preparing your favorite hot beverage at home. This makes the electric kettle a vital tool to equip your kitchen with. This incredible kitchen tool helps you quickly warm or boil water for various uses around your kitchen, from preparing ingredients to defrosting foods, and preparing your favorite cup of coffee.
As seen on Smeg’s collection, today’s Electric Kettle comes in a wide range of designs, sizes, features, and colors, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs and aesthetic preferences. You can also pick one that matches well with other kitchen tools to elevate your kitchen’s aesthetic appeal, including toasters, mixers, juicers, and coffee makers!
If for any reason, you don’t already have a juicer in your kitchen, you have more than a few reasons to get one like yesterday. Just like the name suggests, the tool helps you extract juice from fruits, veggies, and other kitchen ingredients fast and almost effortlessly. You can say goodbye to those strenuous and frustrating moments of extracting juice if you have a great juicer in your kitchen. What’s more, today’s version comes in sleek and eye-catching designs that also help in decorating your kitchen.
For lovers of cheese, this tool can make your life so much easier and more convenient. Apart from helping you shred cheese, a food processor can also help you slice blocks of pepperoni, make mayonnaise, prepare peanut butter, or make whipped cream in a fraction of the time you would have spent doing it manually. Modern versions also allow you to slice up vegetables into varying sizes depending on your preferences.
This tool is what you might have heard being referred to as a crockpot. Perhaps alongside the rice cooker, the slow cooker is one of the kitchen appliances you don’t want to lack in your kitchen. While the name suggests that it probably wastes time, the slow cooker consumes less energy than most other cooking equipment in the market.
There are many things you can cook in a slow cooker, and that’s not all! It saves you money because you don’t have to throw away your leftovers as long as they’re still in good order. It is also the tool to run to when you need your kitchen cooked nicely and well done, easy-peasy.
Kitchen tasks can sometimes feel like a nightmare, especially if you have little time on your side. However, the kitchen equipment industry has seen numerous innovations over the past few years, and the once overly intimidating tasks can now be done in a flash. The above is just a drop in the sea when it comes to chic tools you want to have in your kitchen for saving time and uplifting décor.
