We’ve all purchased those kitchen gadgets that were supposed to save us time, but after a few weeks of limited use—they keep getting pushed back further in the cabinet or higher on the shelves. An example of this for me is the bread machine. Now you may love your bread machine, but for me, we are in the latest trend of eating less bread—so there it sits collecting dust—a lot of dust because this thing is big!
So the following is a list of 11 "extra" appliances or gadgets that I can’t live without.
Now can I really live without these? My grandmother and mother probably did, so yeah, but if you’ve got some space—these are the things that have helped me to feed my (large) family a little more easily and quickly.
1) The Rice Cooker
2) Kitchen Aid Mixer
3) 2 Slow Cookers
- Excessive amounts of food. (parties/or for us—our Sunday dinner. It’s not unusual for me to have 2 pot roasts and veggies going at the same time.)
- 2 Different Courses, especially if we are at an event and we need to come home to eat. One might have soup, the other sloppy joes or meatballs. One might have mashed potatoes and the other, creamed chicken. For brunch, one will have scrambled eggs (keeping warm) and hashbrowns (keeping warm).
- Or simply 2 different kinds of soup. Are you wondering how you ever made it by with one?
