Prepping tools & gadgets
This is brilliantly absorbent replacement for old-school spongy dishcloths – you know, the kind one uses to dry the the excess water? This is much better and prettier too!
I love the chic design and colour of this kitchen composter. It’s a got a great wall and cabinet mount. Plus, it’s odor-blocking too, a serious prerequisite for this kind of zero waste kitchen equipment!
This Kale stripper makes prepping any kale dish so effortless. Separating kale leaves is one thing I like to do efficiently with as little food waste as possible. This tool works well and it doesn’t take up too much space!
If you’re a newbie cook or just short on time, you need this tool. It peels, grates and minces ginger with minimal effort. Even if you have expert knife skills, I highly recommend having this gadget on standby as it’s inexpensive too.
Do you hate discarding avocado because it’s gone all brown? Squeezing lemon juice works well but it’s not as effective as keeping it in a sealed holder like this one. This storage container makes your avocados last longer. It’s worth having if you’re meal prepping in advance.
These are delightful and perfect for saving your conventional containers for storing actual cooked meals.
Always keep a container filled with freshly squeezed lemon juice in the fridge. It saves you time and effort when you need it for nutritional cooking. Instead of squeezing by hand, you simply squeeze and rotate. I use this version at home and I promise you don’t need a fancy mechanical one as this one works perfectly!
This gadget helped me ditch gluten-loaded pasta. It’s so easy to create vegetable spaghetti (zucchini) and it’s really changed my life. It also does so much more – see the features for spiralising cucumber, onions, cabbage, carrots and beetroot.
Chef Knife – Santoku
This is a very popular knife for home cooking. I have two sets of chef’s knives, but this is the one I use for everything, every day. The small size santoku is a great addition too!
Always opt for glass if you can afford it. It’s more hygienic and environmentally friendly. Despite the BPA versions out there, I personally find glass odour-free and they look great to serve straight out of – this is not only a time-saving way of serving meals, but you’ll cut down on extra dishwashing and save water. And it’s 40% off now!
This storage solution for your packaged foods and ingredients is space saving. It is more effective than pulling out a rectangular box to see what’s inside and it works great in the pantry as well as in the bathroom and cleaning closet.
This will really enhance your meal prep and cooking technique, if you’re not a fan of manual chopping. Not everyone’s into knife cuts and that’s ok. This is a whole lot safer. And when you’e cooking straight from after work, it takes the stress out of meal prep. You can chop all you vegetable ingredients in one go without having to empty out the container, no matter what the recipe.
Love these cute molds. You can make lots in one go and play around with colours and flavours.
These are a great investment because you can use them for hard candies too – just try to make them as healthy and sugar-free as possible. Otherwise, use these for delicious fruit juice gelatine gummies.
Blender & Food processor
This is definitely my favorite kitchen tool/equipment. It’s that kind of thing you take everywhere, no matter where you’re living, it takes pride of place. That’s because it’s a healthy cooking tool that can save you time and most of all, MONEY! Budget-living is my style, so trust me when I say this will change the game for you.
It’s no surprise that this is a best seller! It does it all and best of all, it doesn’t take up a lot of space. I love the one-touch-cooking options, when you need it. But, there’s so much more to try: It does the expected pressure cooking, so use this for all your ‘one-pot-wonder’ meals. It will slow-cook and cook rice for you. You can also make yogurt, steam and sauté, and of course, keep food warm.
Safety is always important, no matter how experienced you are in the kitchen. Use this inexpensive tool to safeguard your fingers while slicing, shredding or chopping fruits and vegetables.
Chopping or slicing can be very hazardous if you need ultra thin shavings or slices. Stay safe and stress-free with this popular kitchen gadget. You can use it for different types of fruits and vegetables. It is fully customisable and adjustable to suit your recipe requirements and also comes with a free pair of cut-proof gloves.
It’s hard to resist the effortless chic factor of this gadget set. And it will be worth every penny – being on sale and all! – because you will be using this kitchen essential everyday, throughout the day. Especially if you’re a home cook, so get it now while the price is slashed at 30%
This version is an amazing upgrade if you started off with a basic airfryer. For starters, it’s digital. It’s a convection oven, dehydrator and rotisserie. And best of all, it’s 42% off now. This is perfect for healthy cooking, go get it!
