Kitchen Equipment

A well organised and kitted out kitchen is essential to great cooking. Here are some pieces of equipment that make my life easier in the kitchen that you may also want to consider.

Blenders & Juicers

Nutribullet

I love my NutriBullet. I have used it everyday for the past 3 years. Mostly for smoothies but also to blend hummus, soups and homemade condiments. Simple and effective tech.

Amazon Review: 4/5 Stars


Vitamix

Vitamix blenders are popular and for good reason. They are just as good as the NutriBullet but give you control over the speed allowing you to get the perfect consistency for whatever you are blending. Much more expensive but will last a lifetime.

Immersion Blender

My immersion blender is one of the most useful pieces of kit in my kitchen. It’s essential to making vegan mayo for a start!! also very useful for making soups, sauces and hummus.

Oscar Juicer

This one ain’t cheap but if you can afford the initial cost it pays back over the years. You can make insanely good juices with this bad boy for a fraction of the cost you pay at your local fancy juice bar or cafe. Get creative and healthy at the same time.

Cookers

Instant Pot

This magical bit of kit is 7 different cookers in 1! Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Marker and Warmer. It also has 14 different programs depending on what you are cooking: soup, chilli, rice, stews, porridge etc..

Wonderbag

This incredible simple piece of kit may look like a glorified pillow but it’s actually a slow cooker that uses zero electricity! I love it for cooking curries, stews and even chickpeas.

Useful Gadgets

Spiralizer

Have you ever had ‘zoodles’? No? Well, you’re missing out! A spiralizer adds another dimension to your vegan meals. You can use this handy piece of kit to make vegetable noodles or pasta. My personal fave is zucchini spaghetti!

Salad Spinner

Easy way to wash your veggies before making a salad. Tip – use a cap full of apple cider vinegar before spinning with water to help remove excess pesticides.
