Making dinner is a snap when you can prepare it all day long. A programmable Crock Pot helps your meals turn out perfectly. When you want to pack your leftovers for lunch, try the Crock Pot food warmer.
Like the idea of a Crock Pot but want something that’s a multi-tasker? The Instant Pot might be the answer for you. You can use it like a slow cooker as well as many other things like browning meat, cooking rice, and pressure cooking things quickly.
Convection Toaster Oven
When you’re cooking for yourself or don’t feel like turning on your oven in the middle of summer, a smaller convection version is perfect. These are also a huge help during the holidays when you need a little more space to get everything done.
Fried food is delicious. Air fryers are a way to enjoy that food without all the fat and calories.
Pots and Pans
Some meals can require multiple pots and pans for a single meal. Having an extra set is never a bad thing.
I like multi-taskers. Cutting boards that also be used as serving platters fit that description. Bamboo or wooden ones are the best but plastic ones should always be used for meats.
Storing leftovers or prepping ahead of time requires lots of containers. Having one set of containers makes life easy because you never have to dig through the lids to figure out which one fits. Larger containers are helpful when you’re prepping food for the entire week or a large holiday meal.
Having nice sharp knives are very important. And you can never have too many paring knives or carving knives.
I find so many of my recipes on Pinterest and blogs these days. That means I need to have a place to keep my iPad in the kitchen and have a safe place for it while I cook.
Using fresh herbs makes a huge difference in cooking. These pods help keep herbs fresh longer and they look really cool too.
Sometimes cooking doesn’t mean a big fancy meal with lots of pots and pans and fuss. Sometimes you just want to make something quick and easy in the microwave. This cooking set allows you to make a meal. If you are just cooking for yourself, try this plate. Or you can use these containers to cook multiple things at once.
