Top Ten Kitchen Gadgets I LOVE!


avoSaver, avocado keeper, avocado saver, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001IWONL6/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B001IWONL6&linkCode=as2&tag=vanessafitnes-20&linkId=5c7ba3b694d3e74a445fd6b5253cac8b
1. Avo Saver Avocado Holder - Prevent your avocados from browning! I eat half an avocado each day, so I want to make sure the half I'm saving is still good for the next day. The Avo Saver is an indispensible kitchen gadget for anyone who eats avocados. Even though avocados are such a culinary delight they are also quite expensive and have a short life, once cut. Save money, time and aggravation with this truly innovative gadget. The Avo Saver is easy to use and will reduce a cut avocado’s exposure to air, greatly slowing the destructive oxidization process. Unit is top-shelf, dishwasher safe.

2. Jaxx FitPak Meal Prep Bag - This bag is my favorite! It comes with six leakproof, portion control containers that fit perfectly into the insulated bag, an ice pack, AND a shaker cup! It's a great deal too. When I need to take several meals and snacks for my day, this bag is perfect.

3. Aerolatte Original HandHeld Milk Frother - This tool makes EASY cappuccinos....well, at least frothed milk to put on top of your coffee. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon, and it tastes as good as a coffeehouse in your own home!

4. Culina Mechanical Whisk (Hand Push Mixer) - GAH! I love this mixer. So easy to mix dressings, whipped cream (for special occasions) or anything else that needs a quick mix. Just push down. The kids love it too!

5. Vitamix Blender - The only blender I use for my Shakeology. Makes it as smooth as a milkshake. It crushes ice, and makes delish frozen drinks (for special occasions - ha!) and I also use it  to blend hot soups and sauces. Whenever I want to "hide" soup vegetables for my kids, I blend them up, then add pasta and chicken for a veggie chicken soup. They can't even tell I made it with onions and kale!!

6. Meal Prep Containers (3 Compartments) with Lids These are perfect when I need to prepare meals for the entire week. When I was working in an office from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, and prep all my meals on Sunday. I'd put a protein, veggie, and sweet potato or rice in each of the compartments, and just grab and go all week long.

7. KitchenAid Mezzaluna I love, love, love chopped salads. I bought this gadget, along with a large metal bowl. Veggies, protein, and dressing go in the bowl, I chop, chop, chop, and I get a perfect chopped salad, just like in a restaurant. It also chops garlic and herbs, and has a cover to protect the blade.

8. Stainless Steel Lemon Squeezer When drinking lemon water each morning, and throughout the day, I love this little squeezer. It gets all the juice out of the lemon and into my glass. I also love it for juicing lemons, limes, or oranges for sauces and dressings.

9. OXO Silicone Steamer, Green From the microwave to the stove, to my Instant Pot this Silicone Steamer makes steaming simple. High walls keep food from falling into boiling water and a large center makes the steamer perfect for fillets of fish and other large food items. The pleats on the Steamer make it flexible enough to fit into many different pot sizes. Silicone feet elevate and stabilize steamer over water and it won't scratch pots, making it perfect for both glass and non-stick cookware. I use it to steam the perfect hard boiled eggs. Flexible handles fold inward to accommodate pot lid and stay cool to the touch to safely and securely transport food.

10. Instant Pot This tool makes Sunday meal prep a breeze! Last Sunday I made 3 meals in 2 hours!! It's a smart electric pressure cooker designed to be safe, convenient and dependable. It speeds up cooking by 2~6 times using up to 70% less energy and, above all, produces nutritious healthy food in a convenient and consistent fashion. Instant Pot Duo is a 7-in-1 programmable cooker, it replaces 7 kitchen appliances as it has the functions of a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saut√©, yogurt maker & warmer. It generates almost no noise and leaks no steam. It traps all the aromas in the food without heating up the kitchen. The best part? If I forget to defrost chicken, meat or fish for dinner, I just put it all in the pot, set it for 20 minutes, and dinner is ready!
