Some people say that dinner is the best bonding meal for every family. It is the perfect time to talk over the things that had happened for the whole day.  A good dinner makes a family bond stronger. But as we all know, dinner preparation is not that easy. It takes a lot of time.  It takes a lot of effort. And requires a good knowledge, just like any other meal preparation. Living a busy life, make some moms just buy from taking outs, and restaurants. Which is a more convenient way. But making it less personalized when it comes to mommy’s touch over the family meal.

Home prepared dinner not only makes a personal touch with the home nutrition. It also ensures that all of the food that family eats are well prepared. You may be a busy mom, or just a busy homeowner take time! Let’s make dinner preparation easier. Check out as we share kitchen gadgets that take the stress out of cooking dinner.

1. Instant Pots and Rice cookers

These two kitchens gadgets might sound very common. But owning them makes a lot of magic inside our kitchens. Instant pots and rice cookers are electric appliances which do seamless steaming and boiling. They cook your rice, steamed veggies, and pasta with precision. All you have to do is to wash your ingredients, put the right amount of water, and turn it on! Cooking them in an instant perfection. It also takes away the pain of overcooked and burnt meal.  Modern advances for rice cookers is that they run in full automation. You can just set the perfect time not only to cook. It also undertakes the reheating. Studies say that having instant pots is 20% more efficient than cooker hobs. As they do not only save time but also retains more nutrients in the food.

Gadget Price:  SGD 120 – SGD 200  (depending on the size)

2. Pressurized Cookers

Doesn’t sound new right? Households have been using pressure cookers since the 1980s. But it is only by 2000s when the modern pressure cookers have been doing mysteries in the kitchen. Dinners were known to be served with hearty and savory dishes. This includes beef, pork, chicken and other proteins which requires a long time of boiling. Having a pressure cooker lets you save up to 60% in time, and 15% in gas or electric consumption. It uses air pressure in tenderizing our dishes. One of the magic of the pressurized cookers is that it makes nutrients absorbed in the stock of the food. Serving hearty stews, or soups for family dinners. It makes the food more delicious while saving you a lot of stress.

Gadget Price:  SGD 30- SGD 120 (depending on the size)

3. Handheld Blenders

This next kitchen gadget should be your best friend. Handheld blenders are modern innovation from your old blenders and food processors. The main tasks of this gadget are mashing, blending, and pureeing.  It makes the sauce and juicing preparation an easy task. Since dinners are special meals, it requires a lot of expertise where the handheld blender could deliver.  Unlike the usual blender, it does not use the usual pitcher and blade set up. All you have to do is to prepare your ingredients in a bowl and start dipping your handheld blender to start your process. It makes the process of mashing and blending less stressful by making it easier for you to check the food consistency. It is so far away from the open-and-close-the-lid process on conventional blenders.

Gadget Price:  SGD 30- SGD 50 (depending on the built)

4. Wine Chillers

Dinners are best complemented by wines and fancy drinks.  Be it on a family or personal setup, these drinks make the dinner table more exciting.  The best way to serve wines is that you have to serve them using wine chillers. It may sound like a duplicate for refrigerators, but actually their not. It is set up with the perfect temperature to make not only the wines cold but to make them taste perfect while being aged.  This takes out a lot of stress from the usual “pale, ice and rag” set up you usually see. No need to pick ice, to find a pale, and a rag.  The wonder doesn’t stop there. Do you know that wine chillers are also perfect for fruit juices?

Having them kept in a wine chiller prolongs their shelf life. It can also be used as a fermenting storage for juices to make wines and vinegar. It makes life easier and more convenient, adding a fanciness inside your kitchen.

Gadget Price:  SGD 120- SGD 700 (depending on the containing capacity)

5. Kitchen Ingredient Cutters

Do you know that 50% of your time in dinner preparation is allotted to cutting your ingredients? It is also one of the most stressful things to do in dinner preparation. Mincing garlic, ginger, and onions alone make us uncomfortable. They make our eyes teary.  Garlic leaves a bad smell in our hands, so as with ginger. So imagine having an extra hand using ingredient cutters. The kitchen ingredient cutters are a tiny gadget which you buy in bulk. They come in a group to cater your most specific need in cutting. They have intended cutting duties which vary from the ingredient you have to.

Some homeowners say that using kitchen ingredient cutters does not only save them a lot of time. But it also saves lives by making the ingredient slicing process safer and more enjoyable. The results are way better compared to the conventionally sliced ingredients. It makes them cook dinner like a pro!

Gadget Price:  SGD 5- SGD 40 (depending on the product inclusions)

No matter how hard it is to prepare the dinner for the family, you still got a lot of help. You are not the only one struggling with that problem.  In fact, every moms do.  What makes that different is that they have something to help them out with the job. All you need to do is to find the suitable gadget that you think might help you. So give it a try! Investing in some things like mentioned will change your whole kitchen life totally different!
