1. Measuring spoon with digital display
The “smart” device will surely appeal to avid chefs, especially those who love the art of confectionery. It guarantees the maximum accuracy of food dosages, and therefore can safely replace electronic scales and cups with graduations. With the help of a spoon, you can weigh any kind of food: flour, sugar, salt, butter, milk, cream, and so on. The maximum weight that a spoon can show is 300 grams, which is quite an impressive figure. The gadget displays a measure of weight in grams, ounces, grains and carats. For liquids, there is a corresponding scale on the spoon - you can measure from 5 to 30 ml.
2. Sandwich maker
If you cannot live a day without hot sandwiches, then the sandwich maker will become an indispensable thing in your kitchen. Its main advantage is that the filled bread can be fried evenly on both sides without the use of oil. Also, there is no need to turn the sandwich. Most of these gadgets are designed for four sandwiches, that is, at one time you can prepare a delicious breakfast for the whole family. The cooking process itself takes two to three minutes, which is a great time saver.
A multicooker can replace several useful devices at the same time and cook a wide variety of dishes, from pie, porridge, and ending with soup, fried potatoes. At the same time, your participation in the cooking process is practically not required. All you need to do is to put the products indicated in the recipe inside the multicooker, select the required program ("Baking", "Frying", etc.), and go about your business. The appliance sets the timer on its own, depending on the program you have chosen, and after the expiration of the time it switches to the heating mode, so your food will be hot until lunch or dinner.
4. Electric grill
Another simple and versatile kitchen device is the electric grill, which is designed for baking, frying and heating food. Using the device, you can cook meat, fish and vegetables like on the grill, as well as warm up sandwiches or toast bread for future sandwiches. The electric grill has many advantages: it has a non-stick coating, thanks to which food can be fried without oil, it is able to maintain a given temperature, it evenly heats the dish on both sides, so there is no need to turn it over.
5. Cutting board with pallet box
Many housewives do not even suspect that cooking takes a lot of time, not because of the complexity and multi-stage recipe, but because you constantly have to be distracted by waste disposal: throw away the peel from vegetables and fruits, food wrappers, and so on. To speed up the process and make your life much easier, you can purchase a cutting board with a pallet box - a special slot into which peels, husks and other waste are thrown. Once all the food you need is in the pot or pan, the drawer can be pulled out and emptied in seconds.
Please note: The compartment can be used not only for waste, but also for temporary storage of chopped vegetables, fruits, meat and other products, which is very convenient.
6. Mobile microwave
If the microwave is an indispensable device in your kitchen, and you have no idea how you can part with it even for a few days, buy a mobile version of the device. Small weight and size will allow you to take such a microwave on business trips, travel, along with a small hairdryer, iron, kettle. A portable item will take up a minimum of space in the car. But the main advantage of the device is that it can work not only from the mains, but also from an adapter, a battery. And in some models, a USB connection is even provided, thanks to which the microwave can be charged from a power bank.
7. Keeper of freshness for greens
Greens give the finished dish an amazing aroma and improve its taste, so it is not at all surprising that most housewives prefer to regularly buy dill, parsley, cilantro and other herbs, or grow it on their own. If you belong to the first category, then you know that greens do not "live" for long and if you do not use them in the first few days after purchase, they will simply wither. Of course, you can use a popular life hack: put the crushed product in ice molds, fill it with oil and put it in the freezer. Or you can buy the so-called "Herb Savor" - a device that helps greens to stay fresh for a long time. This device visually resembles a large glass flask: when you place herbs in it, the process of their wilting slows down significantly.
According to the manufacturer, the food safety of greens can be increased by three weeks, the main thing is to observe all stages of preparation. So, after buying the herbs, you need to rinse, dry and place in the pan of the flask, into which water is previously poured. The device should be stored in the refrigerator, fortunately, it does not take up much space and even fits on the door. The water level in the device must be monitored and, from time to time, add another portion to the container. As for the care of "Herb Savor", it is very simple - the gadget can be washed both by hand and in the dishwasher.
8. Marinator for vegetables and meat
Have you dreamed of marinating products several times faster than usual? Kitchen gadget manufacturers have fulfilled your desire and have come up with a vacuum marinator that copes with its functions in just a few minutes. You just need to cut meat, fish or vegetables, prepare the marinade itself and put everything in a container. At the first stage, the device actively pumps out air, at the second stage it intensively mixes the product so that each piece is well saturated with marinade. The whole process takes at most 20-30 minutes, while under normal conditions the meat for the shish kebab should "rest" all night. A typical one-time cycle for one serving is only 9 minutes. By the way, after marinating, you can leave the product in the appliance - it will not deteriorate even if it is outside the refrigerator.
9. Form for cutting cake layers
And again we return to the baking lovers and those who often indulge themselves and family members with delicious desserts. Especially for them, a form was invented for cutting the cakes, which allows you to divide the base as evenly and accurately as possible, which is a prerequisite for preparing multi-layer baked goods. Usually, on the side surface of the device there are slots for a knife, so at the exit you get seven absolutely identical and even in thickness "floors".
Another advantage of the shape is the adjustable diameter, so that the device can be adjusted to the desired dimensions of the cake.
ten. Fat catching magnet
Whether you are eating a healthy diet or dieting often, the fat magnet can help you keep your figure in top condition. Its main task is clear from the name - the device is able to “collect” excess fat from the surface of the dish. You just need to bring the device to the dish and watch how harmful calories begin to be attracted to the magnetic surface.
Before using the device, it must be put in the freezer for several hours so that the caught fat instantly thickens and freezes to the magnet. It can be used to defat both broths and side dishes. Caring for the device is simple: just wash it under the tap with detergent.
