The Ninja Foodi 9-in-1

When it comes to kitchen appliances, this could be the last one you’ll ever purchase. An air fryer like this one from Ninja makes it possible to cook and crisp your food, resulting in “fried” items with far lower amounts of fat.
And it’s not simply a fry-making machine, either. The dehydrator can shrivel strawberries for a fun afternoon activity with the kids, and the pressure-cooking mode can evenly cook frozen meals. In addition to baking casseroles and cookies, searing/sautéing, slow-cooking, and even making yogurt.

Another perk: Dishwasher-safe parts make cleanup a breeze. Pros include a high price tag and a significant amount of counter space in the kitchen. “However, one reviewer asserts, ‘This does everything.'” It’s worth the counter space.

  • comes with a Radial cooling fan and thermal protection system

  • built-in stainless steel blades are design

  • clean itself in 30 to 60 seconds

Reusable silicone bags by Stasher

Check out Stasher’s bags while we’re talking about getting rid of single-use plastic in the pantry. As long as you don’t put them in boiling water or the dishwasher, you’re good to go. Up to 400°F, you can bake one, but we’re not sure why you’d do it.

Jamey, the market editor for Parenthood, argues that Stasher bags are worth the money despite their high price. Thanks to their lovely colors and the magically effective zip-style seal, these baggies will make storing leftovers a pleasure.

Using this baker’s wand, you can’t help but feel like a fairy princess or a magnificent wizard. The sphere-shaped dispenser can be used to sprinkle powdered sugar or cinnamon on brownies, snickerdoodles, or any other recipe you’ve made together with your child.

Softshell Ice Cream Balls from Yaylabs

With summer just around the bend, we’d like to give this product our full endorsement. Isn’t it great that you can make dessert by shaking, rolling, and kicking around a ball of ice and rock salt with a mixture of cream, sugar, and vanilla?
Ice cream can be prepared in about 30 minutes in the backyard with this robust, food-safe, BPA-free, dishwasher-safe plastic. It’s getting mixed reviews, with some people saying it lived up to expectations and was delightful, while others are upset that the cream and sugar mixture leaked out when they kicked it or that the ice cream was difficult to scoop out of the molds.

The experiment could be interesting if you’re up for a $35 investment, in our opinion. Take your time and read some more reviews to make an informed conclusion.

PROS

CONS

  • makes approximately one quart of home-made ice cream

  • Simply add cream, sugar and flavorings in one end

  • easy to clean 

  • include a Recipe book

  • balls can get noisy rolling back and forth on the floor

Popsicle Mold by Zoku

Even though they’re more reliable than ice cream balls, these Zoku ice pop molds are still a lot of fun. You and your family may create a variety of popsicles with six easy-to-use silicone chambers. The plastic handles contain a drip guard to prevent juices from running down your child’s arm.

People say these are easy to clean and use, but they advise that they be cleaned by hot water. They also take up a lot of freezer space, according to some.

  • free from preservatives

  • Simply squeeze to enjoy, no need to run under warm water

  • easy to clean

  • be little carefull while cleaning

Dorai Dish Pad

One of those things you don’t know you’ve been missing out on is the Dorai Dish Pad. You can use it to dry your dishes without fear of bacteria and mold growing because it’s composed of silicone and diatomaceous earth (we had to look it up, too).

That being said, if you’re grossed out by the thought of how many times you’ve placed your spotless dishes on a soggy, slightly discolored dish towel, this product might be the answer. Hydrogen peroxide can be used to clean it, according to the manufacturer.

PROS

CONS

  • Comes with Sized to fit large items

  • comes with Soft, non-slip surface protects delicate items

  • built-in Flexible silicone Mat can be rolled up

  • food-safe silicone

  • not so floppity doppity 

Electric rice cookers

Electric rice cookers are another of my must-have kitchen tools and the one I get the most resistance from fellow cooks about because they seem odd and unnecessary.

Rice is a staple in the pantry of any frugal cook, and it’s likely to be used quite frequently. Whether you like white or brown rice, this gadget is the best and most energy-efficient way to cook it to perfection every time.

How many times you’ve had to wait for your rice to finish cooking before you could start on the rest of your meal because it was taking up too much space on the burner. Using a rice cooker eliminates all of these issues.

You put in scoops of rice, fill the container up to the X level (most have an outer and removable inner chamber for ease of use and cleaning), cover, press the “cook” button, and that’s it!

Using your rice cooker, you can also make oatmeal for breakfast (or dinner, if you’re like me)! Find a recipe that works best for you by browsing through the various options available online (some like it soupy, some firm and chewy, some in between the two).

Take a quick shower and put on your work clothes before throwing your ingredients into the microwave for an easy breakfast that will be ready in less than 20 minutes.

PROS

CONS

  • Comes with 6-step cooking process

  • comes with cool touch handles ensures your safety

  • The non-stick coating, the cleaning of the inner pot is like a breeze. 

  • user friendly with digital LED display

  • not so floppity doppity 

Food Processor

Simply having this tool on hand could be considered a blessing in the kitchen. Shred block cheese or slice stick pepperoni with this device (both of which are much cheaper than buying pre-shredded cheese or pre-sliced pepperoni).
For example, you can whip up a batch of mayonnaise using it or whip up a bunch of whipped cream with it.

Food processors are must-have kitchen devices for preparing pates, dips, and creamy deli-style tuna fish. Make delicious hummus or guacamole in only a few minutes, which is ideal for preparing our guacamole-deviled egg appetizers! They are simple to clean and produce better outcomes than full deli and supermarket goods.

Food processors are a must-have kitchen appliance that can save you a ton of time. Once you start using one, you’ll see all of the other ways you can put it to use.

PROS

CONS

  • Comes with powerful 450 watt motor

  • Simple to assemble and use

  • Stainless steel blades

  • esy to clean

  • little NOISY!
