Must have kitchen gadgets

I must use mine every day but mostly for blending the cooked veggies for my free soup. I would not like to be without it.

I also could not be without my pressure cooker. It is a godsend for cooking a whole chicken and keeping it moist. Of course the liquor from it becomes the next days soup. Fantastic too for cheaper cuts of beef. They are always tender after cooking this way. I leave the liquid in the fridge overnight and if there is any fat solidified I just take it off and know that my soup stock is fat free.

I couldnt live without my stick blender. I use it instead of the processor more often than not as easier to get out and put away

Stick blender (I have a cheap one from Tesco and it is great for soups)

Titan vegetable peeler (from Lakeland)

German mini grater which I got from TK Maxx - they only had one and I wish I could have found another one for my sister. Great for ginger and small amounts of cheese

Good sharp knives - years ago I was given a set of six Japanese Global knives and they are wonderful. I keep them well sharpened on a special stone

Actifry and slow cooker - they take up a lot of space but are really useful

I have an apple slinky which is great because for some reason I hate biting into whole fruit but will eat it like this. You can either peel it at the same time or leave the skin on.


Pre SW I used to make curly fries with it which were yummy.

I agree with lots of the above but would like to add:

microwave rice steamer - perfect rice every time!
I have a general microwave steamer (which can also do rice), but I find it's great for keeping in the flavour , I've rediscovered several veggies, I used to hate cauliflower and to a lesser degree carrots, but it's sooo much better in the steamer.

We also have a pressure cooker with a steam function, which is great when we have company.

A good set of sharp knives are also important.

I never have to worry about my eggs not being cooked or over cooked if i want dippy eggs - & at just 99p a bargain!!!!
