Now you all know that I’m a techno dinosaur, I’m not a great one for gadgets full stop. Our television is very old but we’ll keep it until it dies probably, we obviously don’t have HD, or even widescreen! Even in the kitchen I’m not known for having the latest ‘must have’ gadget. I’d love a Kitchen Maid food mixer, but I don’t really have the space for it, so I’ll make to with my little electric hand mixer I’ve had for twenty years! But I have been making life easier in the kitchen over the last year with two different gadgets!
Firstly, I finally invested in a slow cooker. I did have one when I was married before, but my ex was the cook in our house so I left it with him. I still need to make more meals with it – this involves being more organised and planning ahead more!
But using a slow cooker is a real way of making life easier in the kitchen. I’m in London today for an event. Rather than worrying about cooking a meal when I get home, I can just set the slow cooker going in the morning and it’ll be done in time for dinner. Easy, stress free – job done. Although Daddy P always worries when anything is left running when the house is empty! But that’s why we have home insurance isn’t it?
Next up for making life easier in the kitchen was the arrival of our fab Dolce Gusto coffee machine.
I do love a Cappuccino but with all the coffee machines I’ve tried over the years I’ve never been able to made a nice one. All that changed the day my new machine arrived, no need to froth milk separately, quick and easy coffee with no mess.
The Dolce Gusto also makes a mean Chococino, keeping Monkey supplied in the best hot chocolate he’s tasted. A happy Monkey and a happy Mummy. Quick and easy drinks, giving me the extra time to spend doing other things!
Making life easier in the kitchen is all about saving me time. What gadgets do you have to make your life easier?
