Fullstar Vegetable Chopper Dicer Mandoline Slicer Food Chopper Vegetable Spiralizer Vegetable Slicer
Not only is this food prep gadget compact and easy to store, but it’s a time saver that sets you up for success. Every Sunday, we purchase fresh produce and slice, peel and chop (you name it!). And all of this in a fraction of the time that it takes with our regular kitchen knives. My mom actually found this product after extensively researching multiple brands. Obviously, Fullstar beat out the other brands across the board, so I had to buy one for myself as well. There are multiple variations, but THIS ONE is the exact model that I purchased. It contains two different sizes of choppers, mandolin slicers and a grater for cheese. If you like zoodles, there is also spiralizer. Other functions/tools include a peeler, egg separator, juicer, egg slicer and even a protective cutting glove.
Best Way to Cook a Hard Boiled Egg
So, technically, this is isn’t “boiling”, but it is literally the BEST way to cook an egg. I broke our oven this summer (but that’s another story for another day) and my husband came home with THIS GADGET one day, and I’ll never look back! In this elite gourmet rapid egg cooker, you can poach, soft boil or hard boil eggs with very little effort and minimal cleanup in less time than other methods I have tried. I will forever be preparing my deviled eggs using this nifty item from now on.
Best Stainless Steel Toaster
We went without owning a toaster for almost 5 years. We got a super fancy one for our wedding, but it was “toast” after only a year. So, we just kept toasting our bread in the oven or on a skillet. That works fine when you are focused on the task at hand. Unfortunately, we burned many a loaves of bread forgetting about toast broiling in out oven. We finally bought this sleek, 4-slice toaster with a defrost and warming mechanism. And I’m proud to share that we haven’t burnt any bread since we bought it!
How Do I Make Tea at Home?
If you want to know how to make tea at home, then this presto dehydrator is your answer! You can dehydrate fruit or fruit skins, herbs, edible flowers (store-bought or even foraged!). Make your own blends this spring and summer, so that you can enjoy a cozy cup of tea on a chilly fall and winter day. Dehydrators are also great for preserving fruits and vegetables, making your own spices, seasonings, soup mixes and more!
Which Brand of Pressure Cooker is Best?
It’s gotta be the InstantPot Duo for me. I love this thing. Not only is it affordable, but it has all of the functions I could ever want or need. And this item was heavily utilized in our kitchen while we were without a stove. I cooked a large quantity of frozen raw chicken in under 40 minutes using the pressure cooker setting. In addition to pressure cooking, I used the slow cooker function to make, hashbrown casserole. And I even used the saute function for chopped veggies. We would have eaten a lot more take out than we did had we not had this versatile item.
