Our normal hectic lives are full of crazy calendars, packed planners and slammed schedules. We are all busy and tight on time. Do yourself a favor and consider using these top kitchen gadgets perfect for saving time.
#1 3-in-1 Avocado Tool
Whether you are all about that Keto lifestyle or are thinking about doing a Whole30 protocol, your kitchen is probably stocked with real, whole food options like fresh fruit including avocados. When you’re in a hurry, it can be annoying to properly prepare an avocado, which is why every kitchen should include a nifty 3-in-1 avocado tool. Not only can this kitchen gadget cut open an avocado, it can remove the pit and slice it into strips perfect for a bowl of chili, a pot of soup or a hearty salad.
Making homemade smoothies is a breeze when you have a blender. No matter what your budget, there is a blender option for you. If you have a smaller living space, select a mini sized option or if you have the extra space, go big with a larger machine for all of your favorite smoothie recipes.
#3 Citrus Press
Slicing citrus fruits like grapefruits, lemons, limes and oranges can be time consuming. Instead of slicing and squeezing fresh fruit yourself, pick up a citrus press. A citrus press will remove every last drop of citrus flavor from your favorite fruits and will keep all of the pulp and seeds out of your beverages.
Tip: A fresh squeeze of lemon or lime can give an added kick to any recipe even a simple glass of water.
#4 Food Processor
If you like to make homemade sauces and spreads, then a food processor is a kitchen gadget must have. Best for making a batch of homemade energy bars or the perfect pesto sauce, a food processor will save you tons of time when whipping up some of your culinary favorites.
Looking to increase your vegetable intake? Swap traditional rice and noodles for more mindful veggie based options like broccoli rice, cauliflower rice, carrot noodles, sweet potato noodles or squash noodles. Although these options are all available in the store, save some money and make them at home instead with a spiralizer.
#6 Slow Cooker
The last thing you want to do after a long day is come home and prepare an entire dinner, which is where a slow cooker comes in handy. Simply select your slow cooker recipe, place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker, set to low and slow then enjoy a home cooked meal only a few hours later. A slow cooker can save you a ton of time in the kitchen, but if you want to save even more time, opt for an Instant Pot and have meals made in an instant.
#7 The NutraMilk
Sick of soaking nuts and seeds to make your own nut/seed butter or nut/seed milk? Try The NutraMilk. Making a batch of homemade nut/seed butter or nut/seed milk has never been so simple. Whether you prefer almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds or walnuts, The NutraMilk can handle it all.
