As a SAHM of two young kids, I cannot be thankful enough for kitchen appliances that make my work easier. There are those that save me time, and there are those that let me multi-task.
I must admit that life goes on without some of them, but saving me time and energy means a lot more than the money spent on these appliances.
I like to bake every now and then. Baking means I can home-make treats for the family, and I find it therapeutic. My mixer does an amazing job every time I want to bake something.
My mixer has also provided me with many special moments with Phoebie when we are in the kitchen together. I enjoy involving her in the kitchen and she always has that curious spark, wanting to try what she sees.
Some day, Breyen can come and join us!
There are days when I only have like 10 minutes to cook and eat a meal. The microwave oven is my life-saver when I need to heat food up real quick.
Being Chinese, we love eating rice. In fact, most meals that I cook includes rice. The rice cooker gets things done quickly and nicely.
The best part about the rice cooker is that I can steam other dishes while the rice is getting cooked. Steamed fish always comes out nicely done and not overcooked.
I recently redeemed a hand blender set at the local supermarket after collecting stickers and I’ve been loving this appliance since.
For a while, I would hand-smash biscuits for the cheesecakes I make. After I got the hand blender, the biscuits are nicely processed in five seconds. Time-saver equals life-saver for Mummy Priscilla.
When I only have a small amount to whisk, I change the attachment on the hand blender and whisk away, instead of using the bigger mixer.
The Air Fryer is definitely one of my favourite kitchen appliances. While I like eating some fried dishes, I rarely cooked them before I got the Air Fryer. Even a little pan frying leaves a greasy floor, which I don’t always have time to clean and I hate that.
Since getting the air fryer, Phoebie gets air-fried snacks when she wants nuggets or fries. Air-fried means minimum amount of oil, so it’s a much healthier choice.
I recently joined a group on Facebook where all kinds of Air Fryer recipes are shared and have since expanded my repertoire of air-fried dishes.
Luncheon meat? Not a problem.
I love eating fish but never fried any at home until I got the Air Fryer. Good bye greasy floor, hello yummy fish!
There’re also the following:
pastry-wrapped soup, prata-wrapped sausage,
bacon-wrapped enoki mushrooms, and so many dishes that I will continue to explore with the Air Fryer.
I use minimum amount of oil, the food turns out delicious and I don’t have a greasy floor to clean after I am done! It’s a win-win-win situation!
As a stay-at-home-mum, I cannot be thankful enough for these kitchen appliances that have made things so much easier.
