I’ve always loved cooking but I love it more than ever now. My kitchen is crammed full of gadgets, some that are gathering dust and others that are used every day. These gadgets are some of my favourites and have been absolutely life changing and time saving since going vegan.
This gadget completely revolutionised tofu for me. Gone are the days my tofu would be wrapped in a tea towel with four cookery books, two litres of plant milk and a bag of pasta balanced on top trying to squeeze out all that water. Now it’s just popped in this and left overnight, simple! The tofu ends up with the most amazing texture too, I couldn’t cope without this in my kitchen.
When you first discover your love for avocados, you find a way to incorperate avocado into every meal. Morning slice of toast lacking something? Avocado. Post gym smoothie needs something extra? Avocado. Dessert? ..Chocolate avocado. And when you’re eating this many avocados, you quickly learn how slippery and dangerous they can be to cut open (there’s been a significant increase in avocado related injuries recently..). This nifty little gadget not only takes away that risk but also makes the job ridiculously easy. Cut, deseed and slice with minimal effort and mess, a must have for any avocado lover.
While there’s more expensive potato chippers on the market, this is the model I have and it’s still going strong after a year of regular use. I cannot stand cutting up potatoes and sweet potatoes into chips because they always end up wonky and uneven but with this they not only end up cooking evenly, but they look professional too. You cal also use it to cut quick and easy vegetable batons.
Move over slow cooker, make way for the Instant Pot. This gadget is a little pricey but oh so worth it. Cooks vegetable to perfection, makes the most amazing rice, can be used to make your own yoghurt, cooks beans and pulses in a fraction of the time and you can even bake cake in it. I haven’t even gotten round to trying all the functions on mine but it’s yet to disappoint! These tend to go on offer whenever there’s a sale event on Amazon, so keep at eye out for that.
If you love pineapples quite as much as I do, then you need this in your life. No more slicing and wasting half of your yummy fruity goodness, this gadget cuts out all that hassle. Just insert and twist and soon you’ll have a satisfying coil of pineapple without any of the juicy mess. What’s not to like?
