Kitchen Gadgets Everyone Should Have

Kitchen gadgets make great gifts for newlywed couples, people who love to cook, and just about everyone – but they’re not just for gifts – there are essentials you should buy for yourself, too. Below is a list of five kitchen gadgets that complete your kitchen.

#1 – A Slow Cooker

The slow cooker, or crock pot, is your best friend in the kitchen, especially if you’re busy and don’t have time to throw together a healthy meal in the evenings. Just set up your slow cooker in the morning, and your meal will be ready when you get home. Soups and stews come out perfectly with just a bit of preparation, and low-fat meats come out tender and juicy after a few hours of simmering.

#2 – Immersion Blender

Also known as a hand blender, this item is ideal for pureeing items right on the stove top, or making smoothies right in the cup. After that, clean up is ultra simple – just rinse it under the faucet and leave it out to dry.

#3 – Vegetable Peeler

Vegetable peelers not only save your hands peeling veggies, they can be used for slicing out sections of cheese for platters, and making chocolate curls for cakes, pastries, and frothy drinks. When you have guests over and are crafting hand-made drinks, those little chocolate curls add a nice, finishing touch that your visitors will appreciate.

#4 – Kitchen Shears

These special scissors are a must have for anyone who likes to cook. They make cutting easy – and not just for opening packages. Separating the joint on a chicken leg is simple with kitchen shears, and cutting up meat for steaks is simple with the scissors.

#5 – An Expensive Knife Set

Invest in a top-brand knife set, and expect to spend anywhere from $60 to $150 on it – and you’ll never regret it. Make sure that the knives have full tang and are weighted well in the hand. The bolster should be one single piece (that’s where the blade meets the handle), and the steel should be forged, not stamped. Furthermore, the chef’s knife in the set should have a smooth edge and not be serrated. The steak knives can be, but smooth, sharp edges are almost always superior.

These five gadgets complete your kitchen and are must haves for everyone. Invest in well-made products that will last, and you’ll find they are worth the investment – they pay for themselves in making meals easier and cooking more convenient.
