Spending time in the kitchen is one of my favorite things to do. Be that as it may, there are moments when this hobby feels like a burden. Don’t take me wrong, I really love cooking and I could even say that it is an important part of who I am. However, sometimes I feel that there are a lot of time-consuming tasks involved in preparing meals, time that I would more rather spend with the ones I love. So, today I will be sharing with you four of my favorite kitchen appliances that help me save time and that make me enjoy cooking even more.
The first appliance I want to share my thoughts on is the kitchen aid mixer. Easy on the eye, this is one of those day-saving tools that keep cooking fun and fast. What I particularly like about it is the fact that it comes in handy no matter what I am preparing. My tip for you is to settle for a mixer that comes with a handful of accessories. In no time you will be able to: shred, slice, beat, grind meat and even make ravioli with little to no effort!
Secondly, I couldn’t get on without my electric juicer. I’ve always liked natural, fresh fruit juice and this small appliance has definitely been practical. Since buying it, I no longer have to go through the pains of manually juicing the fruits, a task that used to take me forever. Another reason why to buy an electrical juicer is the fact that this is also eco-friendly due to the fact that it prevents food (fruit) waste..
Thirdly, make sure your kitchen is equipped with a bread maker. The smell of just-out-of-the oven-bread is still a familiar smell that reminds me of my childhood. This is the reason why I always wanted to keep this tradition even after I moved to Chicago. However, as you can imagine making bread takes lots of time and effort, the reason why I believe a bread maker is one of the best investments I have ever made.
Last but not least, my days would not be the same without my slow cooker. Yes, I have to admit, ‘slow’ might not sound time-saving but take my word for it, you won’t regret it. This kitchen appliance is ideal for family nights when you want to spend as much time possible with your loved ones but also prepare a healthy meal. Just follow the steps, set the timer and off you can go and watch that movie without having to worry a bit.
So, I hope my list will help and inspire you and make your time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and, of course, exciting.
