For thousands of years, people have prepared their food with the most basic of tools (kitchen gadgets). I also know that we have been taught that the first invention was most likely the wheel, but I think it was probably a stone mortar and pistol that was one of the first must have gadgets developed by a cave woman trying to figure out how to do something different with the nuts she was given to cook with for the hundredth time! I actually own a hand made mortar and pistol out of the beautiful hard Guanacaste wood of Costa Rica, and it has come in handy more times than I ever thought it would.
I can’t deny the fact that these days there are a ton of really awesome gadgets available that are hard to live without! Every cook knows that eating the right way means having to do more work at home. Those of us who have to make everything from scratch because of our dietary needs and desired health changes, along with those who just simply love to cook from scratch, can always use items that lessen our time in the kitchen.
I have listed a few of my favorite tried, true and trustworthy must have gadgets. If you can get a hold of some of these must have gadgets to stock in your kitchen, cooking can take less time and become more fun! I hope they become your favorites and save you time as well!
