If you have the right tools then nothing can stop you!
1. Egg Yolk Separator
When I first saw an egg separator I thought, would I actually really use this? Since purchasing I have not looked back. I am constantly using egg whites in recipes and this makes life a lot easier and less mess too.
2. Onion Slicer Guide Holder
Not only does this holder help you to slice the perfect onion it keeps your hands odour free. An absolute kitchen essential.. I must slice onion 3 or 4 times a week and I haven’t looked back since purchasing this gadget.
3. Spaghetti Measuring Tool
One of the questions I see regularly from followers and on the facebook group is.. how much pasta should I be eating? Let’s face it, we all cook too much which means we all eat too much. This brilliant spaghetti measuring tool limits portion meaning you will never overeat pasta again.
4. 3-in-1 Avocado Pitter
I remember the first time I was handed an avocado.. I literally had no idea what to do with it. This tool makes it much easier.
5. Angry Mama Microwave Cleaner
Just add vinegar and water for a sparkling clean microwave! This mama releases steam and melts away all the gunk in your microwave making cleaning up an absolute breeze!
6. Five Piece Measuring Cups
These cups are a fantastic way of measuring mls/cups. Quick, easy and the perfect measurement.
7. Herb Scissors
Making it quick and easy to snip chives, coriander stalks and leaves, and any other herbs.
8. Measuring Spoons
I love my measuring spoons.. constantly needing tablespoon and teaspoon etc. Some people assume that your average teaspoon/tablespoon from the drawer will cut it.. but actually it really doesn’t. Get your measurements perfect with these.
9. Silicone Food Covers
I literally swear by these little beauties! They are amazing and save my life many times a week. Long gone are plastic tubs in our house.. these silicone covers come in all sizes and can be used on top of regular bowls, mugs, tubs and even the end of fruit to keep it fresh. Try clipping over the end of a pineapple or lemon and it will stay fresh in the fridge for days.
10. Meat Claws
Oh I literally adore these.. they are fantastic! Use them when slicing beef, making pulled meat recipes or even just flipping on the BBQ.
11. French Fry Maker
Want to know how people get those perfectly shaped chips? This is how…
12. Slow Cooker
A slow cooker is an absolute must for any Slimming World follower! I couldn’t survive without mine and there really is no need to spend a fortune. I love this stylish Black and Rose Gold slow cooker from Morphy Richards. Check out my Slow Cooker recipes here.
Okay there are loads of brands out there… but I have to highly recommend the original Actifry from Tefal. You may not believe it but I actually use this every single day. Loads of people think they are only good for making chips but that’s simply not true! I cook chicken, steak, mushrooms, tomatoes, jacket potato… the list is endless. If you are considering making the investment, do it! You will never look back. Check out my Actifry friendly recipes here.
14. Omelette Maker
I invested in one of these little beauties a year ago and have enjoyed many breakfast and lunch time omelettes. They are so easy to use and creates the perfect omelette every time.
15. Waffle Mold
If you haven’t created my delicious Syn free waffles for breakfast yet why not? They are simply delicious! All you need is one of these inexpensive waffle makers. Check out the recipe here.
I use the omelette maker to fry my eggs as well, haven’t used a frying pan in years to fry an egg
Me too 🙂 I use it to make waffles too x
