I like things that make my life easier. And when it comes to cooking, I absolutely love anything that helps me ease the process.
I work full-time, and I choose to cook my own food whenever possible – it is much cheaper, not to mention, much healthier.
My kitchen fleet includes a toaster, a George Foreman grill, a microwave, a sandwich maker my girlfriend's mom gifted us, a rice cooker, a blender, a dicer and a latte machine / coffee maker. I also have a ton of knives, tongs, forks, pizza cutters and other kitchen knickknacks that serve no particular purpose, other than being funny to look at.
In this post I present you: 12 Cheap Kitchen Gadgets, that are worthy in my opinion. Some of them may make your life a little easier, some of them may make it more fun.
