Here's How to Save Time Without Sacrificing Taste with these Easy Cooking Appliances

Make meal time fun with a well-stocked kitchen. Having a variety of kitchen appliances brings versatility to cooking, so you can make dishes the whole family will love. The best part? With the right tools, you can make healthy, delicious meals quickly and easily.

Weeknight Meals Made Easy

Let’s face it, weekdays are busy. We often get stuck in a rut and reuse the same recipes or don’t plan properly for a healthy meal. Kitchen appliances like multicookers, pressure cookers and slow cookers make it easy to add variety throughout the week.

Short on Time? Prepare Mouth-Watering Dishes with These Quick Cooking Appliances

Consider these easy cooking appliances and make mealtime fun again. 

A pressure cooker is a great way to make delicious meals in less time. An airtight appliance like this traps steam for cooking. Food is moist, and it retains its nutrients and vitamins. A pressure cooker can cut down cooking time by up to two-thirds. You can use it to make all types of dishes including meats, porridge, risottos and soups. 

A slow cooker cooks moist, tasty dishes over a longer period of time. Meals take from four to ten hours at a low or high setting. The key benefit is its easy, one-step preparation. A hands-off cooking method, you simply place the ingredients in the slow cooker over night or in the morning and leave them to simmer. Next? Enjoy a home-cooked, hot and tasty meal at the end of the day. Experiment with all types of dishes including stews, chilis, curries and more. 

Healthy and satisfying, eggs are a great food choice any time of day. Quickly and easily prepare hard-boiled or poached eggs and add a punch of protein to breakfast, lunch or dinner. Choose from stovetop and microwave egg poachers, to electric egg cooker/poachers that sit right on your countertop. 

A healthy side dish, rice is an excellent complement to any meal. With a rice cooker, you can prepare perfectly cooked rice every time. No more standing over the stove or eating overcooked rice. A rice cooker makes it easy so all you have to do is add the ingredients.

Get Creative with These Fun Cooking Essentials

Think outside the box when it comes to cooking. Whether you’re a novice or a chef-in-the-making, there are all sorts of easy ways to cook, fry and grill your favourite foods.

Perfect Food That’s Easy to Prepare

Sous vide isn’t just for fancy restaurants and cooking shows. It’s becoming increasingly popular for home cooking. And guess what? It’s easy. Sous vide cooking involves sealing food in an airtight container—usually a vacuum sealed bag—and then cooking it in temperature-controlled water. 

You place the food in the bag with your chosen marinade, sauce, herbs or spices, set the time and temperature, and leave it without worry of overcooking. Benefits include: 
  • Cooking is gradual and controlled with no high or low extremes for consistent results 
  • The protein cooks in its own juices for moist and tender results 
  • You can take it out as soon as it's done cooking or leave it until you’re ready to eat, and it won’t overcook! 
  • If you like, you can finish the food by searing, grilling or broiling it to add a crispy outer layer 

Not just for meat, sous vide cookers are also great for preparing a variety of foods including eggs, desserts, sauces, veggies and more.

Faster, Healthier Fried Foods

Fried foods are popular because—let’s be honest—they taste so delicious. Consider these healthier alternatives and enjoy crispy foods with little to no oil. 

An air fryer is a compact kitchen appliance that circulates air inside the enclosed machine. The heating elements and fan are located on the top. Hot air is rapidly circulated to quickly and evenly produce crispy foods. A healthy perk, an air fryer uses a lot less oil than a deep fryer and some don’t use any oil at all. You can use it to cook both frozen and fresh foods. 

Countertop convection ovens also circulate hot air to cook crispy foods. Air fryer/convection toaster ovens have multiple functions such as toasting, baking, broiling and air frying. They aren’t as space-saving as air fryers but offer excellent versatility.

Grill to Perfection

Indoor grilling can spice up mealtime. Diner-style breakfasts, juicy burgers and gooey grilled cheese are just some of the delicious foods you can make.  

Add a griddle to your selection of small appliances and prepare larger meals with ease. Griddles come in stovetop and electric versions. The large, flat surface makes it easy to prepare batches of eggs, pancakes, French toast, bacon and sausages. Some feature a ribbed side ideal for grilling burgers and steaks. Invite family and friends for Sunday brunch—the more the merrier! 

Contact grills, also known as panini grills, are a popular way to grill a variety of foods. They are portable and easy to use. These grills feature a top and bottom heated surface for moist foods that cook fast and don’t need to be flipped. 

Offering impressive flexibility, contact grills cook everything from grilled cheese, fajitas and steaks to paninis and pancakes. They come with flat surfaces, ribbed surfaces or both.

Soup’s On

Savour a warm bowl of homemade soup whenever the mood hits. A soup maker is essentially a blender with a heater. Simply add your chosen ingredients, choose the desired setting, and let the machine do the work.

Finish up with Food Storage

Made too much? Batch cooking for the week ahead? Planning lunches for work or school? Whatever the reason, it’s helpful to have the right food storage products handy. 

A vacuum food sealer preserves food for storage in vacuum sealer bags. After placing your food in a sealable bag, a vacuum sealer removes the air. This creates an air tight seal to help keep foods fresh longer in your fridge, freezer and pantry. 

Also consider a smart bag sealer. It seals virtually any bag or packaging, so you can lock in freshness. 

It’s a good idea to stock up on food storage containers. They are great for portioning food, storing leftovers and preserving freshness. Rather than waste food, you can pack them up for lunches or a later date. 

Glass containers are safe, long-lasting and don’t absorb odours. Plastic containers are tough and lightweight, making them easy to transport on the go.  

Opt for Ziploc bags for convenience at home and away. Offered in a wide variety of types, you can use them for fresh produce, storing food in the freezer, weekday lunches and more. Ziploc bags are also useful when space is limited. 

Discover our wide variety of food storage products. With the right selection, you can preserve foods for longer and cut back on waste.
Now that you’re up-to-speed on easy cooking appliances, it’s time to get grilling, frying, sautéing and simmering. With our versatile selection of countertop cooking appliances, you’re ready to make delicious meals in no time.
