Four Must-Have Kitchen Gadgets For The Busy Bee

Whether you work at home or work outside of the home, time saving kitchen gadgets are something everyone can benefit from. Here are some great gadgets that can save you a significant amount of time in your kitchen. You might have some of these already and putting them to use can save you time and effort, especially during the work week.


A crockpot is the busy and working person’s dream. Not only does it mean you only have one pot to wash but assembling something quickly in the morning will mean a nutritious and tasty meal waiting for you when you get home from work. Crockery creates a great flavour and they are very easy to clean. There are some great online resources for crock pot cooking. You don’t even have to do it in the morning, you can prep food the night before and keep your crockpot in the fridge and plug it in before leaving for work in the day.


If you have a large freezer, you can save yourself significant amounts of time in the kitchen. When you have time to cook large batches of food, you can save yourself meal prep time later on. Families who make good use of their freezer can eat less fast and processed foods. This also works great when you find freezer friendly food on sale. Stock up and save money!

Standing Mixer

Imagine mashed potatoes that mash themselves and the ability to reduce the wrist action needed for baking and other kitchen duties. A free standing mixer can be a great kitchen gadget.

Food chopper/ Food Processor

This kind of gizmo can save you significant amounts of time chopping, slicing and dicing. It can shred cheese, mix liquids and save your eyes from tearing up with onion chopping. Although some are big and bulky, they can be a great time saver in the kitchen for a busy cook. Even the smaller manual kitchen choppers are very useful and quite inexpensive.

Time Saving In The Kitchen

You might have some of these kitchen gadgets already that aren’t being put to good use. A bit of time on the weekend spent on organization in your kitchen will go a long way during the week. Consider prepping salad fixings and cooking extra batches of food for weekday eating and you’ll find yourself spending less time during the week on meal prep without sacrificing taste and nutrition.
