    19 Kitchen Gadgets That'll Make Going Vegan So Much Easier

    Because cooking with plants can be fun, too.

    1. A handy press that’ll squeeze all the excess water out of a brick of tofu, so it can better absorb any flavour. Plus, drying out your tofu will improve its texture!

    2. An iron fish that'll infuse your drinks and dishes with iron so that you don't have to remember to pop supplements every morning.

    3. A spiralizer attachment for your KitchenAid mixer to make some tasty noods out of fruits and veggies. This one attaches to the power hub on your mixer and uses the motor to make it work, so peeling, slicing, and spiralizing is a breeze.

    4. Or, if a KitchenAid is out of your price range (hey, we get it), you can get a handheld spiralizer that doesn’t require any fancy machinery.

    5. A 3-in-1 herb cutter that will strip, mince, and scrape your herbs and make prepping a sauce, salad, or marinade less of a chore.

    6. A multi-purpose avocado tool that splits, pits, and slices, and will probably save you from injuring yourself while making guac.

    7. An Instant Pot that will take the place of all your other kitchen appliances, from your slow cooker to your steamer, and save you some valuable counter real estate, too.

    8. Some fridge-friendly produce containers that can keep your fruits and veggies fresh for weeks, thanks to their ventilated lids.

    9. A vegetable steamer that's flexible enough to fit into any pot or pan. This one is made of silicone and can be rolled up so that it takes up almost no space in your cupboard.

    10. A wearable vegetable peeler that slides on like a ring and will make shaving your carrots and potatoes a quick and easy task. You'll never accidentally nick you hand again!

    11. An herb keeper that can help your cilantro, basil, parsley, and more last for up to ten days longer than they normally would, meaning they probably won't die a premature death in your crisper.

    12. A banana ice cream maker churns frozen fruit into a healthy ice cream alternative. Now you can finally fill the space in your freezer that was once occupied by chocolate chip cookie Häagen-Dazs pints with something a bit better for you (and less dairy-filled).

    13. A reusable, nylon nut milk bag that you can used to strain your non-dairy milks and juices in the comfort of your own home.

    14. A multi-purpose vegetable chopper that comes with 12 unique blades that you can use to chop everything from onions, to carrots, to garlic in different shapes and sizes.

    15. A compact can opener so you can bust into cans of chickpeas and black beans with ease. This one may take some getting used to if you've only used a traditional can opener, but it's a total space-saver.

    16. A high-speed blender that can cut through hard ingredients like nuts and seeds without dying.

    17. A lemon pod to keep your cut lemons (and other fruits and veggies) tasting fresh. It seals in flavour and will keep your fridge looking cute and organized.

    18. A salad cutter bowl that you can use to rinse, cut, and prep your leafy greens.

    19. An itty bitty chopping device that minces garlic by rolling it back and forth, so it's actually kind of fun to use (like, you could defs enlist a kid to do it).
