You either have an overload of rarely used kitchen gadgets that take up too much space in your drawers and cupboards or you have so few useful cooking tools that you view cooking as a necessary evil. You certainly don't need to waste kitchen space on every gadget imaginable (and there are plenty!), but you can
clear out the clutter and rely on just a few multi-purpose kitchen gadgets that will make your vegan cooking more enjoyable. Here are three of our latest favorite kitchen gadgets for the vegan.3 Fun vegan kitchen gadgets1. T-Fal Delicious & Nutritious ActiFry
If you love stir-fry but don't like the stirring or if you love French fries but not the fat, T-Fal's ActiFry will do the cooking for you, with little fat, and fewer calories. The ActiFry's unique patentented hot air circulation technology system evenly cooks food -- it has an automated stirring paddle that cooks food without your help -- with results similar to a roaster, wok, saute pan, and fryer (but with less fat). The ActiFry features a timer, automatic shut-off, and a closed cooking vessel that eliminates spatter, contains no PTFEs or PFOAs, and is dishwasher safe. You also get 38 healthy recipes that will cook in 30 minutes or less. If you have limited space in your kitchen, this multi-purpose kitchen appliance deserves a tasty place.2. Argee Spin'n Stor
Salads are a mainstay of many vegan diets, especially in the warm spring and summer months when leafy greens, herbs, and other vegetables are fresh-picked from the garden or field. To save space, time, and wasted food (that you buy with great intentions but then let spoil because prepping it is a pain), the Spin'n Stor is a multi-use bag that lets you spin, drain, store, transport, and even serve your salad fixings. It also gives you a chance to get a little arm exercise. Place washed veggies in the bag, spin it around a dozen times to let the water collect in the bag's special reservoir, drain the water, and either serve or store. No more salad spinners or bulky plastic containers taking up space in your kitchen. The Spin'n Stor makes eating salads, herbs, and vegetables fast and convenient. Best yet, the bags are reusable.
3. Bagwell Sealable Bag Holder
Created by a mother who understands the need for a hand in the kitchen, the Bagwell is a "baggie rack" that makes packaging up leftovers (think pasta, sauces, soups, and more) quick and easy. The four-legged rack, which lays flat when not in use, is designed to hold plastic bags open and eliminate the hassle and mess that often results from trying to hold a bag open with one hand while putting food in the bag with the other. Since the Bagwell makes food storage a breeze, you'll be even more motivated to batch cook and freeze a variety of vegan meals to save you cooking time down the line. Because the Bagwell is dishwasher-safe, don't be afraid to take it outside to hold open bags for garden soil or to let your kids use it to put their Legos and other small toys in bags for clean-up.More vegan lifestyle tips!
