There are never enough minutes in the day, so if you can save yourself a few minutes here and there, it can really make a difference. While it might not be easy to cut back time spent on most tasks, the kitchen is one place where shaving off a few minutes to an hour can be done. Below are some kitchen appliances that really save you time.
If you have ever looked into ways to eat healthier, you have noticed that steamed meats and veggies are highly recommended. But who has the time to perfectly steam their dinner? You do—if you have a steamer that you can use. Many steamers on the market are multi-tiered, allowing you to cook various items at the same time. Much like a slow cooker, you simply set it up and walk away, allowing the appliance to do the cooking for you. And since it cooks faster than a slow cooker, you do not need to plan for in advance.
If you haven’t gotten into slow cooker recipes yet, you need to. They are delicious, and so very easy on you. All you need to do is add everything to the crock pot, turn it on, and let it go. And if you purchase a WiFi-enabled slow cooker, you don’t even need to be home to turn it on and adjust the temperature.
We have all made this mistake: We plan a lovely dinner around a certain meat, only to realize at dinner time that we forgot to take it out of the freezer. With a thawing pad, you just need to place the meat on the pad and it will defrost quickly and safely. Fish fillets can be thawed in about 6 minutes; the thicker the meats, the longer it will take.
Does your family enjoy eating lots of grains and veggies? Then you need a pressure cooker. Using one of these simple appliances can reduce cooking time by up to 70 percent. Just make sure you purchase one with a safety lock.
