I put them each in a prefect portions bag, then back in the muffin bag, then freeze them. The butter makes sure they are moist when you heat them up after freezing, and these are so handy top pop in the microwave for a very quick breakfast." –Galeh

    2. A sous vide precision cooker with Wi-Fi so you can monitor the food via an app from the couch on movie night.


    Sous vide, which means “under vacuum” in French, refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. This method ensures maximum tenderness and moisture retention —

    without worry of overcooking. This model features Wi-Fi connectivity, which allows you to start, stop, monitor, or adjust your cook wherever you are through an app.

    Meats and produce can last for weeks to even months/years when they're vacuum sealed and frozen!

    Promising review: "I've been using the Foodsaver systems for years, and love that I can cook extra and freeze it for leftovers for a busy day. One thing I just started doing to store leftovers – once sealed I flatten them and lay them stacked in the freezer. That way, there is less bulk, and it makes for more freezer room. This model is my favorite, I love the changes they made; especially adding the pulse option, and a window to see the end of the bag you're sealing. Much better then guessing. The price is a little steep, however if you faithfully use it, you get your money's worth." –Posterpup

The price very affordable, and Hamilton Beach food processors last a good long time." –Sufyta

    I have one of these and it completely rules. I use it to make perfect eggs with minimal effort after a run almost every morning.

    Promising review: "I can make hard boiled eggs, but poached or soft boiled never turns out right. Although I was skeptical, I bought this due to the low price. I make a lot of hard boiled eggs for my dog, and I eat eggs every day, so I figured it was worth trying. I cannot live without it now. The eggs come out perfectly every time – soft, hard, poached, even an omelet! And the best part – the shells almost fall off. Not one hard boiled egg has been shredded while peeling. The shells are soft and easy to peel. And clean up? Except for the omelet, they cook in the shell. No cleanup except wiping it off! No mess at all." –PeanutsMom

    Promising review: "I love having a food scale. This Ozeri food scale works perfectly. It is black and super thin. It doesn't take up much space to store in my kitchen cabinets, which is a huge plus. The scale is digital and touch screen. The touch is pretty sensitive, and works easily. You can change the units of measurements for fluid ounces, grams, and ounces. It has a Tare button which allows you to zero out the scale. This is great if you are using a bowl to measure ingredients in. it also works well if you need to add multiple ingredients into a bowl. You can tare between ingredients to get accurate measurements. This scale will also automatically turn off if there is no activity. This is great so you don't accidentally use the battery. I have found that I pull it out to use all the time now." –STAYLAW

    20. A digital food thermometer so your in-laws can't complain the chicken is undercooked. This one gives an instant temperature read!


    Promising review: "This is truly an awesome gadget. It takes the guess work out of cooking. I no longer have to slice my chicken in half, and guess if its too pink, or cut my pork in half and wonder if its done. It's affordable too! The similar thermometers I priced were more expensive and offered no additional features." –Asher

    21. An electric citrus juicer so you can both start the day with a cup of fresh-squeezed OJ. It zaps ALL the juice out of each fruit and lets you control how much pulp gets left in.


    Promising review: "The juicer is strong and the process of getting juice out from my lemons is quick and pleasant. Clean up was also a breeze, I simply ran the plastic parts under the faucet. The juicer is well built and runs smoothly. I am thrilled because my lemon tree is full right now, and with my new juicer I will be able to freeze lemon juice to use for a later time. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!" –rcazares98

    25. A juice-extractor because making daily visits to the local juice shop is just not financially feasible ATM.


    Promising review: "I wanted to add more nutrition to my diet. I use this about once a week, and make a lot of juice in one shot. A pitcher of juice takes about 30 minutes from start to finish with clean up. It is pretty efficient at removing all the juice in one shot. I also give the remaining pulp to my pit bulls. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a juicer." –EattingWell

    The best part is you get to decide what ingredients are used. For example, you can substitute sugar for maple syrup!

    Promising review: "This is the only way we eat ice cream anymore! The ice cream just tastes better, it's simple and creamy. The recipes are easy to make, and the machine is easy to use, which is perfect for kids. The machine is easily cleaned, and I would highly suggest reading the manual fully before using. I thought I could skip reading the manual, but it had some helpful hints and tips for using the machine. For example, freeze the base and mixing blade at least overnight and keep the ice cream mixture in the fridge at least overnight. The colder all of these things are the better it mixes. The recipes are easy to personalize as well. My husband like butterfingers, my youngest likes cookies and cream, and my oldest likes plain vanilla. Once you cut up the extras (candies) just throw them in the mixer towards the end, and it's like a blizzard." –LoveLife

    Having dinner ready and waiting at home has never been easier.

    Promising review: "This is the most versatile kitchen appliance I have ever owned. It wasn't the plan, but now I use it every day. I set it up at night to have (quietly) cooked breakfast grains waiting for me when I awake. Then set it up to cook my dinner while I'm out. There are online recipes, blogs, user discussions, etc. that you can make use of. Overall, I think the presets are fun to use but are more than the typical user needs. The manual setting alone would do. The rice setting cooks rice perfectly, and can be used to cook other grains such as millet, as well. I've owned other traditional pressure cookers with the hissy rockers and fussy seals, this is so much better than those." –ExceptionallyLongNickname
