If you are in the kitchen a lot and love to cook, I am sure there are specific tools and appliances that you love to use. I am going to share with you my go-to gadgets, and in return, I would like to hear from you what your favorite items are.

Persian Rice Maker

Pars Persian rice maker

My first and all-time favorite go-to appliance is my Pars Persian, rice maker. If you have ever had Tahdig (Persian rice), then I’m sure you will love to have this item. I have the Pars DRC-240, it makes up to 10 cups of rice. The reason why I love this rice maker is that it is so simple to use, add water, oil, salt rice, plug it in, and turn on the timer. The best rice to use is basmati rice, which you can get at any grocery store. You can make it plain, or add anything to the rice. I love it just plain and crispy.

Smart Oven

Breville Smart Oven

My second go-to appliance is my Breville Smart Oven Air Convection toaster oven. I know that there are a lot of words for one device, but this oven can do so many things that I barely use my regular oven. My good friend Cora told me that I must get an air fryer, and the Breville has an air frying option, along with toasting, broiling, baking, roasting, slow cook, and it even has a dehydrator which I haven’t tried yet. In this oven, I make toast, bake banana bread, cookies, air-fry veggies, potatoes, fish, I even make pizza (it has a pizza setting).

Garlic Rocker

Joseph Joseph Garlic Rocker

I probably cook with garlic at least four times a week. I have tried several garlic presses and, for years, used a gadget that you squeeze and press. That gadget was hard to use, messy, and hard to clean. My third favorite gadget is the Joseph Garlic rocker, which kind of sounds like a metal band, breaks up the garlic quickly and easily; you rock it back and forth and scoop it off. This garlic press is easy to clean and is dishwasher safe.

Milk frother

Zulay hand frother

I am a coffee drinker, and I usually have coffee at home. I love to have my coffee frothy like a latte. I recommend a small hand frother because it is easy to store and doesn’t take up any counter space. After trying several hand frothers, I discovered my fourth favorite gadget, the Zulay high powered hand frother. With the Zulay frother, you can make lattes, cappuccinos; I even use the frother to mix my Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C gel in water because it always separates with liquid.

Reusable silicone cover

Charles Viancin covers

I love to use anything reusable without waste. My fifth favorite gadget that I have discovered is the lily pad covers by Charles Viancin. This is a genius invention. They act as a suction cup to create an airtight seal on anything from stainless steel pots to glassware, plastic, ceramic, and wood. You can cook with these lids as they take to heat up to 428 degrees, depending on which size you use. I use them to heat items in my microwave. These lids cover leftovers in the fridge, and they are dishwasher safe. This gadget is relatively inexpensive, starting from about $9.50 up to $35.00 for a set of three.

Covers used for cooking to steam food

Now that I have shared my favorites with you, I hope you will send me yours as well. Any gadget to make it easier in the kitchen, I am interested. If you are interested in any of the items that I have mentioned, go to my shop or google them and you will find them. Happy cooking!
