Kitchen Gadgets Under $25

OXO Good Grips Chef’s Precision Digital Instant Read Thermometer

I am a big fan of OXO products so when I was looking for a meat thermometer, I naturally looked up the brand first. This highly-rated meat thermometer is from the same Good Grips series as the peeler below. This is still on my wish list but based on the reviews alone, I know it will be a great purchase.

OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler

I got this peeler after my cheap dollar store one mysteriously disappeared (excuse me, Eric). If you are like me who has been using dollar store peelers for most of her life, you will feel the difference instantly.

Ask yourself, what else can make peeling potatoes more tolerable?

Utensil Crock, by KooK, Ceramic Make, Holder (Mint)

I only recently upgraded from an unappealing mason jar to a proper utensil crock I found at HomeSense. It was a spontaneous purchase so I didn’t look on Amazon beforehand. When I finally did, I found this utensil crock by KooK and fell in love with the mint colour. If mint doesn’t match your kitchen, it also comes in Coral, Lavender and Teal (my second favourite).

Magic Bullet Blender, Small, Silver, 11 Piece Set

I use my Blendtec Classic blender to make green juices because it blends everything and the size is perfect for 2 people. However, for people who prefer to make single-serving for on-the-go, these Magic Bullet Blenders are perfect. Note, the reviews are suggesting that they are more suitable for softer fruits (no huge chunks of a frozen banana or avocado seeds) so I would take that into account.

BLACK+DECKER 4-Slice Toaster Oven with Natural Convection

When we were renting, I never used the big oven under the stove. I always got the feeling that it would never be completely clean from so many tenants before us. As a result, I relied on my counter-top toaster oven for everything. Before I splurged on the Breville Smart Oven, I ran through a couple of affordable and reliable Black+Decker toaster ovens over the years. They were perfect for all kinds of jobs: toasting slices of bread and bagels, roasting vegetables and baking cookies!

Kitchen Gadgets Under $100

Instant Pot Ultra Mini 10-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker

I am sure most of us has heard of the magical Instant Pot. It actually took a few friends raving about theirs before I decided to make the purchase. I have become a lot more controlled when it comes to appliances over the years because they take up so much counter space. However, the Instant Pot was worth every penny. I use it mostly to make chilli, soups and congee even though it can do a lot more. It is such a great time-saving piece because it saves you from having to “watch the stove.”

OXO Good Grips 10-Piece POP Container Set

Another recent splurge of mine is this 10-piece container set by OXO. Have I already mentioned how much I love OXO products? I store my dried pasta, flour, dried mushroom in the bigger containers and candies in the smaller ones. They look great and keep the food fresh with the pop-seal.

These products were under $25, 50 & $100 respectively when the article was first published on July 1, 2020.

SPECIAL GADGET for “money is not an issue because I have been saving up for this

KitchenAid Artisan Series 5-Qt. Stand Mixer

I used to pay for cable just for the Food Network channel. Almost every chef on that channel had a KitchenAid Stand Mixer in their kitchen. When Eric got one for me many years ago when money was much tighter than now, I cried. I still have the white Classic Series he got me and would use it occasionally over the years. To me, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer is more than just an appliance. It is a stunning (albeit a little pricey) looking piece of decoration as well.

These products were under $25, 50 & $100 respectively when the article was first published on July 1, 2020.
