For the ladies reading this; if you want your other half to do some cooking, get them a gadget! This is The Kitchen Guy’s helpful little list of the 5 Best Cooking Gadgets for men that you can give as a gift.
Fir the chaps reading this…just get cooking. It’s actually really fun and I love a gadget as much as the next guy which is kind of the reason I write this.
Perhaps you’re a single man trying to manage in the kitchen alone.
Or maybe your wife has finally persuaded you to whip up an occasional meal for you and the kids while she gets on with other chores. Either way, you need to make sure that your kitchen has all the cooking gadgets you simply can’t do without.
Naturally, a cooking range and a microwave oven should be part of your cooking arsenal. But then, those are essential gadgets for any kitchen, anywhere.
What we’re talking about here are those relatively smaller gadgets that don’t necessarily appeal to a woman but are something a man simply shouldn’t be without while trying to cook…
A smart kettle is one thing every male-dominated kitchen should have.
The best one is the iKettle, which connects with your smartphone through the Wi-Fi network. Wondering how smart the kettle really is?
Well, to begin with, this simple one-touch gadget can send you a message in the morning, even before you’re out of bed, to check if you need the water to be heated.
What’s more, you can keep the water at the temperature of your choice after it’s been boiled. So no worries about the water getting cold by the time you reach the kettle. You can even choose the temperature depending on the kind of tea you like first thing in the morning.
Set of knives
This is definitely something every man needs at his quick disposal while trying his hand at cooking.
You don’t know what it may be needed for – maybe slicing or cutting or chopping. From a general-purpose knife to the specialized kinds, a kitchen knife set is a must-have for a man’s kitchen even more than a woman’s kitchen.
A woman knows how to innovate and make do with just one odd knife, but a man is more likely to go by the book and will probably only use a specific knife for a specific task.
If you want to get extra kitchen cool credits, check out some super sharp Japanese Kitchen Knives and go for the whole art of the Samurai look. Quick Note: A Katana is not for use in the kitchen!
And while you’re at it, do remember to get a sharpener too. You never know when you might need to sharpen one of the knives.
Yes, you got that right. It’s neither a juicer nor a blender but a perfect mix of both.
It’s just right for a man who doesn’t know when to use a juicer or a blender and ends up doing neither. The problem is that most of the time you’re clueless about what to do with vegetables and the fruits.
A juice extractor is the perfect answer to your dilemma.
Go for a small, compact one that doesn’t take too much space on the kitchen counter and doesn’t need to be put away every time after use.
You can also see some of the most useful kitchen appliances in another post, that also includes such a device!
Whether a machine or simply a tool, what you need is something that will effectively grate everything for you. So whether for cheese or garlic or ginger, find a grating machine or set that has tools to do all this, and more.
The important features you need to look for is that it is made of good quality stainless steel with steady, ergonomic handles. A dishwasher safe machine with non-scratch blades would be just perfect.
Then there are also the calibrated graters that help you keep track of the amount you really need for your recipe. The dual functional combo of a grater and slicer would also be an excellent addition to a man’s kitchen.
So you’ve finally let your male ego not stop you from cooking your own meals. There are cookbooks and recipes on the Internet to last you a lifetime.
But unlike some folks, who can measure out quantities by instinct and experience, you’d probably need to measure every little ingredient carefully before proceeding from one step to the next.
Naturally, then, you just need to have measuring cups and instruments (preferably a whole set of them) to ensure that you don’t go wrong with your recipes. After all, you wouldn’t want to ruin your meal by adding three tablespoons to a recipe which calls for only two…
There are of course a whole variety of other cooking gadgets that will make cooking much easier for a man, even if he’s a novice at the task.
You can add:
- An egg separator
- herb infuser
- Sauce dispenser
- Condiment dispenser
- Bottle stopper
- Egg mould
And much much more to your list of cooking essentials.
You could also go for an air fryer (it’s especially good for the health-conscious who want to keep their oil consumption within limits), and possibly a pineapple slicer and de-corer.
There’s also the noodle and pasta maker – a definite short-cut to preparing your favorite noodles and pasta quickly and easily. And how about a masher to make the task of preparing potato dishes easier!
Ice and soda makers are other convenient gadgets to have around while experimenting with cooking. You definitely won’t have to rush out in the middle of cooking to fetch a soda bottle or two.
But the ones I’ve listed out in some detail earlier are, in my opinion, the best of the lot. Each of these gadgets is designed to make cooking more convenient and hassle-free.
With these gadgets within reach every time you step into the kitchen (mind you, some of these can be worked through remote too), your tryst with cooking will become an experience to remember and cherish. So no more spending endless hours struggling with your cooking attempts, even if it’s the first time you’re trying to manage it alone.
I hope you enjoyed cool kitchen gadgets for men post and if you did, make sure to share 🙂
