10 of the Best Kitchen Gadgets to Save You Time and Money

I have to admit, I’m a kitchen gadget junkie. I’ve fallen victim to everything from taco shell warmers to muffin top baking pans.

Since I’ve made a commitment to early retirement, though, I’ve managed to kick the gadget habit and pare down my kitchenware to the essentials…. well, the essential tools plus a few extras that I feel add enough value to keep around.

With these 10 suggested kitchen tools, you will make cooking time a breeze. And you will wonder why you didn’t start using these gadgets sooner!

1. Food Processor

My first absolute must-have kitchen gadget is a food processor with switchable disks/blades. This item alone could be considered the cook’s best friend. With it, you can shred block cheese or slice stick pepperoni (both of which are much cheaper than buying pre-shredded cheese or pre-sliced pepperoni).

You can also use it to make mayonnaise, peanut butter, or whipped cream, as well as chop or slice any number of vegetables in no time flat.

Food processors are awesome gadgets for making pates and dips, and mixing smooth and creamy deli-style tunafish. Make awesome hummus or guacamole in minutes, perfect for when you’re making our guacamole deviled egg appetizers! They are easy to clean, and the results are superior to buying prepackaged deli and grocery store foods.

Food processors are an essential kitchen tool that will save you loads of time, and once you start using it, you will discover more and more uses for saving time in your cooking.

You’ll want a good, sturdy model that will withstand heavy use over the years.  The brand I would most highly recommend is Cuisinart.  A good alternative to one of these machines for slicing is a mandoline, another tool that actually performs a few tasks a little better or quicker if you are preparing smaller amounts of food.

2. Slow Cooker

My next must-have kitchen gadget is a slow cooker, also known as a crockpot. Aside from the energy savings from using a slow cooker versus the oven to cook a roast, this little beauty is a great way to use up leftover meats and vegetables – just toss them in with some broth, let it cook all day, and you’ve got soup!

It’s also the easiest way to cook a chicken for those casseroles or pot pies that call for cooked chicken – AND make your own chicken broth at the same time! Just season the chicken, pop a peeled onion in the cavity, add 2-4 cups of water, and cook it on low for 8-10 hours.

Place a colander in a bowl (which has enough volume to hold the amount of liquid in the crockpot) and slowly pour the contents from the crockpot into the colander. Carefully lift the colander and let it drain, then place it in a large, empty bowl or on some paper towels (as a little more liquid will continue to drain off), to let your chicken cool until you can easily handle it.

The meat will fall completely off the bone, the skins are easy to remove, and you’ll have loads of cooked chicken for several recipes, as well as several cups of homemade broth. You can refrigerate the broth before using it, and easily skim the fat off the top to make it even healthier.

Many crock pot dishes from soups to beans can provide multiple meals: just freeze the leftovers to reheat on the stove top or microwave for weeks to come!

Another great thing about crock pot cooking is it can easily fit into a busy family’s schedule, where different family members sometimes need to eat at different times. Using this simple cooking method, they can each eat a hot meal without requiring you to put in the effort of cooking multiple times.

Cuisinart MSC-600 3-In-1 Cook Central 6-Quart Multi-Cooker: Slow Cooker, Brown/Saute, Steamer

You can get a crock pot or slow cooker at a starting price of about $20 and find a really decent one for under $50, although I’d highly suggest spending a little more. Consider the Cuisinart MSC-600 3-In-1 Cook Central 6-Quart Multi-Cooker pictured above, because it will allow you to slow cook, brown, and steam all with one appliance, and it will likely last for years.

If you already have a crock pot, then start using it! You will be amazed by how much time and money this valuable tool saves you!

3. Rice Cooker

Another one of my must-have kitchen tools, and the one I get the most resistance from fellow cooks about because it seems odd or unnecessary, is an electric rice cooker.

Rice is a staple of any frugal cook’s pantry, and is probably used often. This gizmo is the best and most energy efficient way to cook your rice – whether white or (my preference) brown – to absolute perfection every single time.

Think about the number of times your rice has boiled over, or cooked for too long and burned, or dried out without enough liquid, or took up valuable burner space so you had to wait to cook another part of your meal. Rice cookers remove every single one of these obstacles.

They come with precise measurements that are plainly marked on the cooking vessel, so there is no guesswork involved – you put in X scoops of rice, fill the container to the X level, pop it in the cooking chamber (most have an outer and removable inner chamber for ease of use and cleaning), cover, hit the “cook” button, and that’s it!

Another great use for your rice cooker is making oatmeal for breakfast (or, if you are like me, sometimes for dinner)! You’ll find a lot of different recipes out there – read through them, and pick one that creates the type of oatmeal you prefer (some like it soupy, some firm and chewy, some in between the two).

You just toss your ingredients in, take a shower, dress for work, and in 20 minutes or less, you have a hot, inexpensive, and nourishing breakfast waiting.

Zojirushi NS-TSC10 5-1/2-Cup (Uncooked) Micom Rice Cooker and Warmer, 1.0-Liter

Although you can purchase these low-cost versions made by Aroma, once again I caution you against cheaping out here. Having lived in Korea, I know that all of these are not created equal.

If you buy a good one made in either Korea or Japan, with Fuzzy Logic (computer chip enabled to adjust cook times) and “stay warm” capabilities, your rice will be cooked correctly AND stay fresh for several days. I’d recommend looking at the Zojirushi NS-TSC10 5 1/2-Cup Micom Rice Cooker and Warmer pictured above.

This is a made-in-Japan model (some of Zojirushi’s cheaper models are made in China) that has all the basics that you need. With hundreds of positive reviews on Amazon at the time of this writing, you can’t go wrong.

4. Juicer

If you don’t already own a juicer, buy one immediately! These are a definite must-have kitchen gadget. If you do already own one, then start using it!

Not only are juicers a great tool for squeezing lemon, lime and orange juice when called for in recipes, the’ye able to juice vegetables as well.

They save you muscle and extract the most juice possible, something you could never achieve by hand squeezing citrus fruits alone, and allowing you to extract juice from plants that you would never be able to squeeze with an old-style citrus juicer.

Additionally, you won’t have to worry about the seeds or the pulp being in your juice, and the waste pulp works well in your compost bin.

Fresh-squeezed orange and grapefruit juices are far superior in taste and nutritional value to anything you can possibly buy in the grocery store. Once you taste fresh juice, you will never go back to store bought. And serving your guests fresh juice will get you nonstop raves for the uplifting and refreshing feeling they experience!

Juicers can be bought at a low starting price of around $12. Once again, I caution that you get what you pay for, and I highly recommend spending a little more for this fabulous kitchen tool. For the most bang for your buck, purchase a masticating juicer rather than the centrifugal type, as they are a lot more efficient and you will get a lot more use, enjoyment, and juice out of a good one.

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer – Black and Chrome

I recommend the  Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer if you’re serious about buying a quality tool that will last. If the cost is prohibitive, Amazon sometimes offers factory reconditioned versions with full 15-year factory warranties at a more affordable price.

5. Blender

Blenders don’t need to be expensive. You can get a low-end blender for $20 to $30 that will work well, and this handy gadget will provide you with a multitude of uses from making smoothies and blended cocktails to your own sorbet from frozen fruits and juice.

For a lower cost product, I can recommend the Oster 6812-001 Core 16-Speed Blender, as I’ve personally owned one (actually two, thanks to many household moves with the Army). They feature glass carafes and they look pretty snazzy on the countertop.

Oster 6812-001 Core 16-Speed Blender with Glass Jar, Black

However, it you want to step it up a notch, I highly recommend the Vitamix 5200 Series Blender. I bought mine through a road show at an Army PX (Post Exchange – the department store on Army installations) but they can be had easily through Amazon and other online retailers as well.

vitamix 5200 series blender

When I got my Vitamix, it was like a night and day difference compared to what I had been using. Where my Oster struggled with making a thick smoothie or frozen yogurt, the Vitamix chugged right along and asked for more. The motors are so powerful that you can actually cook in these things due to friction of the blades spinning in the ingredients! They also make special blades and carafes to allow you to grind grain. You really couldn’t ask for a more perfect kitchen tool.

Check out our in depth review to learn more about the Vitamix 5200 Series Blender.

Many folks also report good experiences with the Blendtec Designer Series, like the model pictured below. I’ve never owned one, but if the many positive customer reviews on Amazon are any indication, then this is definitely an awesome gadget that should help you to blend anything you desire short of a brick (and it just might be able to handle that as well).

blendtec designer series blender

Many people have blenders and they forget to use them as other newer gadgets get more love, but once you start taking full advantage of your blender and using it as one of your go-to tools, you will find it not only to be time saving, but a fun way to create variety in your menu experience on a regular basis. No more hanging out in the back of the cabinet for this small appliance!

6. Rubber Spatulas

Having a good set of rubber spatulas in at least three sizes will save you time and money in the kitchen. Food won’t be wasted when using the last of that mayonnaise, or pouring batter from a baking mix you just prepared. And rubber spatulas are fantastic tools when it comes to spreading condiments on your bread or a toasted sandwich.

They spread so much more nicely than butter knives, and can accomplish the job in one fell swoop. When you are making sandwiches for several people, you can really appreciate how crucial a good spatula can be for saving time!

di Oro Living Silicone Spatulas

My favorites are those made by di Oro Living. I find that they are quite a bit stronger than most others, with an embedded stainless steel core. I hate a flimsy plastic tool! They also feature a lifetime guarantee, should you have any issues.

7. Four-Sided Stainless Steel Grater

A good grater is not only a great time saving gadget for quickly grating cheese (and grating your own cheese is far superior in taste to buying store-grated cheese), you will find it handy in grating raw vegetables of all types, from carrots to radishes, potatoes, and much more. It doesn’t take much muscle to do your own grating, and you’ll find that grating some items is much faster than chopping them with a kitchen knife.

Cuisipro Surface Glide Technology 4-Sided Boxed Grater

I can only really recommend one product, and that is the Cuisipro Surface Glide Technology 4-Sided Boxed Grater shown in the above picture. Its 25-year warranty is a testament to the quality of this product, and I wouldn’t use any other brand.

It’s a bit pricey for a basic tool, but in the long run it will save you time and aggravation, as opposed to dealing with an inferior grater. I particularly like this brand as it’s the only grater I’ve ever found where the fine side actually grates rather than just creating a powdery mess. I think you will be thrilled with the quality of this product as well.

Again, a mandoline is also an excellent substitution (in some cases) for a grater. And a food processor with slicing and shredding blades can sometimes double up to accomplish many of the same jobs quickly and efficiently as well.

8. Large Metal or Plastic Colander

I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t use my colander. This is a  fast and efficient tool when it comes to draining pasta and vegetables, or even sliced potatoes for homemade french fries.

Don’t think you can just keep a lid on a pot and pour out the excess water without using your colander. The “hold the cover and just pour the water” method is not only ineffective, you can burn yourself badly with the steam that escapes as well.

It will take you far more time to deal with a burn or injury than if you had just used a colander in the first place.

This is a tool for which, unlike some of my other suggestions, paying up for a little more in the quality department is not going to cost too much.

oxo good grips stainless colander

You’ll want to take a closer look at the OXO Good Grips 5-Quart Stainless Steel Colander, pictured above. It’s also reviewed well by verified customers on Amazon.

9. Carbon Steel Wok

You can save time in the kitchen and cook fabulous meals by using a carbon steel wok. One pot to clean, and fresh veggie-based meals are ready in minutes. You can’t beat that!

Helen Chen’s Asian Kitchen 14-inch Carbon Steel Flat Bottom Lidded Wok Stir Fry Pan Set

You can get a wok at a starting price of about $20. I’d suggest that you look into a flat-bottomed version, unless you want to deal with a “wok ring” to holds a curved-bottom version over your stove. I particularly like the one pictured, as it is made in the USA (kind of ironic, isn’t it?). The Chinese have special stoves (both modern and traditional) that hold the curved-bottom versions correctly, but they just don’t work as well on modern Western-style cooktops.

Take a look at Foodal’s article on choosing the best wok for more details.

10. Airtight Food Storage Containers

Airtight food storage containers will save you both time and money in the kitchen, because you can neatly store your rice, pasta, dry baking ingredients, and snacks, and even organize your spice packets and meal mixes.

They will help you to find what you need in your pantry at a glance, and not only keep ingredients fresh, but keep you from accidentally spilling that open box of elbow macaroni or instant rice, or open bag of flour, and creating a kitchen disaster that requires lots of sweeping and vacuuming!

OXO 5-Piece Good Grips Pop Containers Set

Again, I’m not trying to spend more of your hard earned money, but I feel that you would be best served by a set of the OXO 5-Piece Good Grips Pop Containers, as they force a good chunk of the oxygen out from the storage area and allow your ingredients and other foodstuffs to stay fresh for much longer.

These are a good quality product and should last quite a while as they are made with thick, sturdy plastic. I’m getting close to five years with mine, with no issues or performance loss.

Taking advantage of a few simple tools and kitchen items will not only save you time, but in most cases, it will save you money as well.

You probably already have many of these gadgets, and maybe some have been ignored over the years. But if you revive or renew your use of these essential tools, you will find cooking and cleanup time to be greatly reduced.

So there you have it – ten kitchen gadgets that are sure to save you time, money, and hours of hassle. Oh, and about those taco shell warmers and muffin top pans? I’d say pass them by… unless, of course, you plan to buy them at my next yard sale!

  1. My slowcooker is my favorite thing ever. It can do almost anything, I swear. I’d be lost without it, especially in the winter months when chili and soup are a must.

  2. This article makes me want to go shopping!

    My slow cooker is the best. I even make bread in it from time to time! My favorite thing is to make chicken broth like you describe. The chicken is so tender and really falls off the bone. The chicken broth you buy in the store tastes nothing like the real thing. It has so much flavor, plus you get the benefits and nutrients from a true bone broth.

    I really need to get a better rice cooker. I have the plain, one-setting version and it does over cook from time to time. We make a lot of rice so it would be awesome to have a more authentic one.

    • I didn’t know that you could make bread in a slow cooker. That’s something I would have never thought of. What kind of bread do you make in it? I’m always amazed at the things a slow cooker can do.

  3. While being a simple item, the 4-sided cheese grater is one of the most used and useful items in my kitchen. I grate cheeses, carrots, other vegetables etc almost daily. I absolutely recommend a good quality grater for every kitchen.

  4. I’m glad I have many of these. Don’t know what I would do without them! A juicer and rice cooker are definitely on my want list. i have a small rice cooker but it’s old and doesn’t work that well. I’d love a new one with programmable options. I find myself buying expensive fresh juices too often and a juicer would definitely save me some money. I’d like to experiment with different flavor combinations. Maybe I’ll ask for one for Christmas 🙂

  5. I’m surprised that a quality set of kitchen knives isn’t on the list. Maybe they are taken for granted. I often find that it saves me time and money to use the right knife for the right job. And they need to be good quality, sharp, and comfortable. I also can’t live without my set of bullet blenders. These are so handy to have I always have it sitting out on the counter and use them for nearly every single meal I make! You can do almost everything with them, from whipping cream, making caster or icing sugar, grinding herbs and spices, making juices and smoothies, and scrambling eggs.

  6. I’ve been looking everywhere for a crock pot since I have the tendency to burn dishes using ordinary pots. I need to have it. That one in your picture looks just a tad bit more stylish than the usual slow cookers you see in malls.

  7. Yep, I would agree with most of that – and have most of them already, thankfully! My food processor/blender died recently but I know I’m going to need to replace those.

    I’ve been keen to get a juicer for some time, but the one thing that’s been putting me off if that msot people say they’re a nightmare to get clean, unless you wash them out instantly, so it’s interesting that you’re saying the complete opposite. Maybe I’ll have to go browsing Amazon reviews in more detail and find one that is ok.

    I personally don’t have a problem with cooking rice, but I know it’s one of those things where you either have the knack for it or not, and if not I can see where a rice cooker would come in useful. Me, I’m happy to do without, as I don’t have enough counter space for many more gadgets!

    The only other thing I’d add is an ice cream maker; homemade ice cream beats store bought hands down, you’ve got so much more choice of flavours and you can even make it healthier with a few little tweaks to the ingredients, but I think it must be a real chore to make by hand.

  8. I’ve been looking at rice cookers but I am never sure if I will really use one or not. I never thought to make oatmeal with it. That right there might be enough to sell me on purchasing one. I love oatmeal but I hate making it in the morning. Throwing everything into the rice cooker and then going about my business to get ready for the day would be a great time saver.

  9. Investing in air tight containers is something everyone should do even if they don’t cook as much. It keeps things fresher and also you can see what you have, so you will actually use it rather than let boxes and packets folded over accumulate in the cupboard.

    I also agree on the spatulas, metal ones can scratch and rubber ones are more flexible and durable than plastic ones. They’re also good for serving when they are stylish so a dual function.

  10. These are some really fascinating items. I want them all!

    I absolutely love that there are so many timesaving devices available to make good eating less of an arduous task than it used to be.

    I have a Cuisinart food processor and would not trade it for anything in the world. It has never let me down. The best thing about purchasing quality items like these is that you won’t waste time out of your life being without what you need for the task because it broke down; they practically last forever.

  11. I to love our slow cooker/crock pot. Since my children have all left the nest, it’s just me and my husband. We tend to do a lot of cooking in the old trusted crock pot. I suppose it’s just so darn easy, one would have to be a fool not to take advantage of it. We just load it up with a chuck roast throw in our veggies, and go about our day.

  12. I love using slow cookers. You can just put the meal in and go on about the rest of your day. Its so convenient when you’re on the go. I just started using them about a year ago and I can’t get enough. My favorite thing to us them for is a pot roast with potatoes.

  13. Wow after reading this article I just want to make a list and go shopping. I feel like if i equipped myself with all of these gadgets then my life would be so much easier. I already have many of them but I am sure going to be purchasing the ones I don’t have!

  14. Thanks a lot for this post, I’m actually moving to a new house very soon and needed to know what to get for the kitchen. This is a very concise but excellent list.

    A wok is very important and a lot of people don’t seem to realize it. If you want me to cook dinner at your house and you have one? I’ll definitely do it!

  15. I can’t recommend rubber spatulas enough. I mean by all means, keep the regular, stiff ones around if you need to flip something, or for serving something, but the rubber ones are awesome for, say…scraping things out of a can or bowl, or folding something like melted chocolate. One-hundred percent worth the investment.

  16. The only problem with owning all these gadgets is having enough storage space for them in your kitchen! I’ve got limited space so I just have a food processor. I find it quite easy to cook rice on the stove top, although I agree that having a dedicated rice cooker would be so much more convenient.

    Rubber spatulas are a great addition to any kitchen though, particularly as they are perfect to use with non-stick pans.

  17. I mostly agree with the items in this post. I don’t really cook enough rice to spend $100 or more on a rice cooker, but I’m keeping my eye on it. I also don’t really see the need for a juicer if you have a Vitamix blender.

    I have a refurbished Vitamix that I bought from their site, and it works like a dream. We make smoothies, soup, sauces, and ice cream with very few ingredients. It has been a very worthwhile investment.

    I think I’d probably add an electric pressure cooker if I were making the list. We make all kinds of things in ours. It is a Cook’s Essentials brand. It cooks beans quickly and if you are a meat-eater then it makes a great roast.

    A slow cooker is probably one of my most used kitchen essentials. You can cook so many things in it, and if you haven’t purchased one, I’d highly recommend getting one with a Keep Warm feature. It’s great to keep things warm especially if you have family eating at different times.

  18. I absolutely LOVE my slow cooker. My husband and I got it for Christmas one year and I swear it’s my most-used appliance out of anything. Well, that and the hand-mixer 🙂

    I also use my rice cooker a lot, being that I’m of Asian descent and I like to eat food with a lot of rice. It really saves a ton of time and a ton of hassle/headache in terms of how long, how much water, etc; literally just pop it in, press the button and it’s done! I love my rice cooker 🙂

  19. Carbon Steel pots and pans make cooking so much easier because you don’t have to worry about the food sticking! I love it. I use to dread cooking because of this problem but since I made my purchase, cooking has been enjoyable. I didn’t have to spend that much money, I got them on sale!

  20. My partner and I are saving to build our own tiny home this year. Keeping it simple is our goal and this article is very helpful when considering what we NEED in our kitchen. I think that a the blender could be replaced with just the food processor. And the rice cooker could be replaced by a stove pan (although, my partner may beg to differ on that one). I will definitely have to remember to get a wok! We have never had one, but there are so many great recipes that we love that using a wok is essential. Another thing I like about this article is the link for the good plastic ware. Like you said in the article the plastic is usually flimsy, which I completely agree. I prefer to use wood or plastic ware when cooking because they do not scratch non stick pans, but I surely don’t want ones that will melt into my food.

  21. The slow cooker looks really awesome! I’ve been trying for those past couple of months to make everything I eat at home (kind of my New Year Resolution) so that it would be more healthy. I’m surprised you can prepare bread with it.
    Also, a blender it’s a necessary accesory for everyone who wants to stay in shape. Nothing compares with a fresh healthy juice!

  22. I have a few of these things already, but the ones I don’t have yet are a “must get!” Particularly the rice cooker. I love eating rice, more than potatoes or noodles, either one, but I hate cooking it. I always make a mess and never seem to be able to cook it for the right amount of time.

  23. This is a good list for those building a kitchen from scratch. I’d add a good stand mixer with a dough hook, as well. I’ve gotten a lot of use out of my crock pot and blender, and I use my colanders and rubber spatulas all the time!

  24. Mt wife just got her Cuisinart for Christmas and it’s totally changed the way she bakes. She can get so much more done now that baking doesn’t have to take an entire morning or afternoon. Of course I have to keep reminding her that I can’t just eat her baked goodies nonstop, but she enjoys it so much there’s no way I’d ask her to slow down.

    These items in the article truly are essential but also pretty expensive. It’s taken us a long time to acquire many of the items on this list. That being said, we’ve found that waiting to buy the higher quality item has really paid off. There’s just so much to get!

  25. Read and re-read, page has been bookmarked for future reference 🙂 …although first on my list has got to be the Blender, Air tight containers, colander, rice cooker and a crockpot…amazing that Amazon has them {crockpots} for as low as $20…now, no need to start making meaningless excuses… i should be on Amazon site this minute making an order 🙂 {will do so in jiffy}.

  26. Finally, a list simplifying the gadgets you need in your home kitchen! I was curious to see the inclusion of a high- powered blender brand other than Vitamix. I’ve heard rave reviews regarding the Vitamix brand, but the Blentec is certainly new for me. I’ll have to check it out!

  27. Very interesting items! This list has not only the essentials, but extra cooking equipment to make fine dining at home much easier! A steel wok for making stir fries in their most delectable state, a slow cooker (in the South they are called Crockpots), a blender, and a food processor are a few things that can be used to make hundreds or even thousands of five star restaurant quality dishes. Very well done!

  28. I totally agree about the rubber/silicone spatulas. I went over to my mother-in-laws to cook before and she did’t have any. I was shocked. I thought everyone had them. It was a pain to try to scrape things out of bowls without them. I’m so glad I have some, though now I wish I had some as nice as the ones you mentioned. I keep finding better versions of kitchen tools I already have that I want to get. I just need for someone to have a bridal shower or housewarming party so I can regift my tools so I can get myself some upgrades, haha.

  29. I’m a huge fan of the tight seal containers. I have the oxo brand and love them. I find that this is one of the best methods for preserving food. I’ve had dry good in there for at least a year and they are still fresh. I buy a lot of my goods in quantities so these make a great addition to my kitchen.

  30. The only 2 things missing from my kitchen are the rice and slow cookers. Instead I a have a pressure cooker that I love very much because I can prepare anything in no time. And, as I’ve read, not many vitamins are lost this way.

    I think the slow cooker might be very helpful to let it run while you are at work, otherwise I would not have the patience to wait for it.

  31. I’m afraid that when it comes to appliances and kitchenware, I’m a junkie as well. You’ll have to tell me how you managed to kick the habit, because I haven’t been able to refrain myself from buying new tools.
    I already own most of the items on your list and I couldn’t live without any of them. I think the only thing I’m missing is the rice cooker. I’ve been thinking about getting one lately, and after reading your post, I’m sure I’ll buy it in the next few days. I also appreciated your suggestions about the blenders, mine is very old and I’ll need to replace it soon, the Vitamix 5200 sounds like a great choice.
    Although I own more spatulas than I could possibly use in a lifetime, I’ll look up those Oro Living ones, like you I can’t stand cheap plastic tools, and I think the steel core is a great feature, it gives the idea of something sturdier and long lasting.
