My mum always said that cooking is an art. You should take enough time to perfect it, otherwise, it is going to taste hideous. But, do you really have too much time on your hands in this busy modern life?
If you are like me you are terrified of your kitchen. You’d rather order food and munch on it rather than cook something for yourself. The urge to order something intensifies if you have a 9 to 5 job.
I got tired of food delivery and I have discovered how to make things easy inside the kitchen. Today I am going to share my secret with you. I have identified 10 amazing kitchen gadgets that you must have in your kitchen to cook on the go. So let’s have a quick look at them.

Ration Your Pantry with Necessaries and More
Try to keep your pantry filled with things that you might want to cook. The main reason why it’s hard to start cooking is because of lack of materials. Many people try to avoid going to the grocery again and again. Thus, they end up ordering food online. This will not be a big issue if you keep your pantry filled.
Try to organize your pantry as best as you can. Keep snacks and other instant food items on one side. And keep your raw materials (flowers, noodles, rice, and pasta) on the other. Use multiple containers to keep them sorted. Keep one separate cabinet for spices and sauces if possible. This makes things way easier for you to access them whenever you need them.
A Notebook, a Calendar, and an Organizer
These are the Holy Trinity that you must have if you are a cautious mom. The notebook helps you to keep track of things that you have. Also, you can trace things that you would need in the near future. So, grocery shopping becomes a lot easier and you’ll always have something to cook in your kitchen.
On the other hand, the calendar is going to help you stay balanced. It will tell you the expiry dates and the storage date of essential groceries. Plus, you can customize your cooking for special events if you have a calendar.
Automated Blender, Juicer and Crusher
An automated Blender is an essential item that every woman must have in her kitchen. This cuts down your time to cook as well as gives you multiple choices.
You can mix something or make a paste instantly. Working with a blender saves energy as well. You don’t have to strain your hands when you are equipped with a good blender.
Slow Cooker and Rice Cooker
When you want to enjoy a good soup but do not want to stay near the kitchen all the time you need a slow cooker. Making a stew, gumbo, a soup or a thick curry can be exceptionally easy with a slow cooker. It will not only save you time, but it will also be very easy to maintain.
On the other hand, you might also consider buying a rice cooker for your kitchen. Just put the ratio of rice and water as instructed and you will have perfect rice every time. Plus, it will keep the rice warm for you until you serve it.
A Complete Set of Utensils and Knives
Doing the task with the wrong utensils can definitely destroy your eagerness to cook. Ultimately, the cuts and pieces do not come out the way you want them to. Using the wrong utensil also kills a lot of time which you do not have.
So, investing in good knives and utensils is always a good idea.
A good rubber spatula, paring knife, knife sharpening/honing rod, bread knife, chopping/cutting board(s), kitchen shears/scissors, vegetable peeler, and garlic press are some utensils that can make your life easy.
Four-Faced Grater (for cheese and vegetables)
Many people make the mistake of buying a one-sided grater. What they don’t realize is that a four-sided grater costs the same but performs exceptionally well. It can also save your hand from strains. It also comes with a variety of holes so that you can choose which shape of grated cheese you want.
One downside can be that it is too difficult to clean. But with a thin sponge, you can clean your grater easily. This is a minor fault considering the great benefits that it provides.
Nice Sets on Non-Stick Frying Pans
One of the key kitchen essentials is a nice nonstick frying pan. You find yourself using the frying pan more than anything else in the kitchen. So, you better invest a good chunk in finding the best frying pans. It is a good idea to find the entire set that comes with a lid and a designated spatula.
While buying a good frying pan you should look at the specifications. It is not easy to determine the bad ones from the good ones. So I have made a list of the best frying pans on the market. Click here to find out more.
Bonus: A Well-Constructed Colander
Whether you are making some pasta or cleaning vegetables a colander is very important to have in your kitchen. It works like magic when straining water out of things. So you should definitely have in your kitchen.
When you look at the entire list you realize that this does not cost a lot to have in your kitchen. Moreover, you might have most of the things already in your kitchen. But in case you don’t I suggest you go and buy them right away. These are going to flourish your love for cooking. You will find time to cook your own meal even after a very busy day.
