We are all familiar with the run-of-the-mill appliances which you would normally see in every kitchen, but this blog isn’t about them. Today we will list out a few time-saving kitchen gadgets which will elevate your cooking experience in your luxury modular kitchen.
A slow cooker or also known as a crockpot is a great energy-efficient cooking unit which allows you to heat up leftover meats and vegetables in the background while you go about your day. Another useful thing about crockpot cooking is that it can easily be used by multiple members of a family who all have different schedules for eating. They just need to throw in a few ingredients and maybe some broth and just let it slow cook.
The rice cooker might sound a bit redundant, especially in India where everyone is accustomed to just boiling them in a regular vessel or the pressure cooker. But the rice cooker is an excellent kitchen tool which can eliminate problems like the rice spilling over, burning or drying out since this gadget runs on precise measurements. Just toss in the ingredients, read a book and within 20 mins or less, you have a hot meal waiting for you. They are also great for cooking oatmeal for your breakfast.
If you are big on drinking fresh juices and health drinks, a juicer is an essential kitchen gadget will save you a lot of time and effort. They let you extract the most amount of juice possible and also allow you to extract juice from plants that you would never be able to squeeze out with an old-style citrus juicer. An extra benefit of a juicer is that you don’t have to worry about finding seeds or pulp in the extraction. The waste pulp which gets collected in the juicer can be used for composting if you practice it.
Food processors are rarely seen in Indian kitchens but they truly are time-saving kitchen tools which can bump up your cooking efficiency. With it, you can shred blocks of cheese or slice a stick of pepperoni or even use it to make mayonnaise, peanut butter, whipped cream, as well as chop or slice any number of vegetables in a manner of minutes. They are also perfect for making pâté, dips, and mixing smooth and creamy deli-style tuna fish, and so much more!
If you can’t get through the day without your morning cup of Joe, then a Coffee Maker in your kitchen is a godsend. Ground coffee is placed on a paper or metal filter within a funnel and hot water is passed through it and finally, collected in your choice of coffee pot or mug. Coffee Makers save you a lot of time and energy, especially during the morning rush before work. So if you are a coffee lover, this appliance is a worthy investment.
These handy fryers are a type of convection oven which circulate hot air at high speed and produce a deep-fried layer over your food of choice without the use of oil. So if you are health conscious but love the flavour and crunchiness of deep-fried cooking, an Air Fryer is the middle ground that you have been dreaming about.
For most of us, having a bite of waffle usually warrants a visit to the local waffle house or buying frozen alternatives from the supermarket. But if you want unlimited access to waffles on a whim, we recommend getting yourself a waffle iron. The unit comprises of two metal plates with a connecting hinge with a honeycomb-like pattern reflecting that of a waffle. The waffle iron is then heated using electricity and the waffle batter is poured over the mould and closed shut until it is cooked to perfection. We reckon we just upgraded your breakfast.
If you want your caffeine hit to be more potent, then an espresso shot should be your go-to brew. This is where an Espresso Machine can make your life a whole lot easier and adequately caffeinated. The machine brews coffee by pushing pressurised water near boiling point through a “puck” of ground coffee and a filter in order to produce a highly concentrated concoction of coffee called espresso. Another must-have kitchen gadget to make your mornings easier and your days more productive.
These are a few of the many modern-day kitchen gadgets which are not the norm in your standard Indian kitchen but could really make all the difference in your day to day cooking experience. Taking advantage of these cooking tools will not only save your time but in most cases, save your money as well.
