1. Electric Kettle

If you enjoy relaxing with a nice hot cup of tea after a long day, then you’re going to love adding an electric kettle to your kitchen. Electric kettles can light up as they are about to boil and then will shut off when ready. You don’t have to worry about your teapot bubbling over.

Plus you can buy them with a cord-free serving kettle. Once it’s done, just lift it off the heating pad and you’re ready for tea time. It’s faster than a microwave!

2. Spiralizer

If you haven’t tried out a spiralizer for your vegetables, then you’d be surprised how handy they can be. The idea is simple: Instead of chowing down on heaps of pasta, you can turn your vegetables into noodles as a healthy alternative.

You just stick veggies like zucchini and squash into one end and twist. As you turn, your long spirals of noodles come out the other side. Eat your spiraled veggies with pasta sauce or pesto. Don’t knock it till you try it!
