I don’t go to bat for every new gadget, but these ones are used in my kitchen every damn week. For Sunday meal prep or weeknight dishes, having the right tools will save you time and frustration. Scoop up these swear-by kitchen tools and make life a little easier.
I can’t recommend the Instant Pot® enough. It sautés, steams, slow cooks, and more—all in half the time. This is the best meal prep investment you can make, IMO.
Cuisinart Hand Chopper
Don’t cry over some onions! This nifty chopper is my go-to for onions, garlic, bell peppers, jalapeno, and anything else you need diced.
Not necessary, but worth the investment. Glass containers can be washed on the top or bottom rack, they’re durable, and you can bake single-serve casseroles or dishes right inside them.
Get your micronutrient fix! Blendtec’s powerful engine pulverizes (no more veggie chunks) and it lasts for the long haul. I’ve had the same Blendtec since 2013.
