Cooking is a time consuming activity, but it doesn’t have to be.

There are handy tools that you can have in the kitchen to shave many minutes off of the total cooking time. Here are a few tools I use right now to make cooking more fun and something I can look forward to.

OXO Good Grips Vegetable and Onion Chopper with Easy Pour OpeningThis makes chopping everything so much faster. I once spent 30 minutes just chopping onions and bell peppers to create a sofrito for paella. Never again; with this handy tool, I can do it all in 5-10 minutes.
GOURMEX Toughpan Induction Grill PanHaving a high quality grill pan is a game changer in the kitchen. You can grill almost anything and it comes out tasty and succulent; you just need the right seasoning, salt and you’re in business.
Ninja Blender/Food ProcessorThis blender/food processor/chopper 3 piece set is excellent for all your chopping needs. It’s very versatile & powerful for making smoothies, soups, cutting vegetables and more.
Primens Smart Electric KettleHaving the perfect cup of tea, hot chocolate or quickly getting a pot of pasta or soup boiling can be accelerated by a handy electric kettle. It goes from room temperature to boiling within a minute and couldn’t be more convenient.
Besmon Olive Oil Sprayer I spent many months buying olive oil & avocado oil spray, but since I use these oils all the time, I would run out of oil within 1-2 weeks. Buying a re-useable spray bottle is super convenient to reduce the need to buy spray oil for $5/bottle at the store and makes it easier to spray everything from oil to balsamic vinegar onto veggies, meats and more.
Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure CookerSome carbs and proteins are best served cooked in a pressure cooker ie. brown rice, beans etc. It cooks everything to perfect consistency and is a fast, easy clean up. Having a pressure cooker is a game changer.
