One of the easiest ways to adopt a healthy lifestyle is to start cooking for yourself, but doing so can be challenging for those who don’t have the proper kitchen tools. But as a vegan, what tools do you need? We’ve answered this question by highlighting 10 of our vegan kitchen must-haves to help you assemble healthy meals in a matter of minutes. With the addition of these gadgets, we’re confident that you’ll become a master chef in no time.
1. Chopper and adjustable slicer
Instead of spending hours making sure every cut is equal, tools such as the All-in-1 Chopper & Adjustable Slicer make it easy and efficient for home cooks to dice vegetables and fruit. The product allows users to create uniform slices thanks to settings for julienne, chop, dice, cut, and grate. The efficiency and usefulness of this product is especially convenient for someone who cooks primarily with vegetables, as this tool allows users to slice fast and safe with an easy cleanup.
2. Avocado cutter
Avocados are a delicious source of protein in many vegan kitchens. Thankfully, the Avoquado tool is equipped to cut, pit, slice, and scoop the green fruit safely and quickly. Perfect when preparing guacamole, making avocado toast, or when adding avocado to salads, this tool eliminates the need for knives and keeps your hands clean.
3. Food processor
When preparing plant- and wheat-based meals, it’s necessary to have a tool that makes chopping vegetables and preparing dough easier. This is where the 11 Cup Performance Dicing Food Processor comes in, as the product is ideal for those who want to take raw almonds and turn them into almond butter or for those lazy folks who don’t want to spend their afternoons chopping vegetables. Within minutes, users can enjoy items such as nut butter, hummus, pesto, brownies, and ice cream, and who doesn’t love that?
4. Knife set
When preparing food at home, one of the most vital tools in your kitchen is a good set of knives. The Ronco Six Star+ 30-Piece Cutlery Set with Knife Block offers a comprehensive array of kitchen knives for slicing vegetables, trimming herbs, and using the chef's knives for those tougher tasks such as cutting butternut squash and melons. Among the knives included in the set are the Ronco Rocker, designed with a curved blade to make slicing and dicing easier, and the Six-Star Showtime, with a raised handle to prevent your hand from hitting the cutting board.
5. Cookware set
The 12 Piece Tri-Ply Stainless-Steel Cookware Set with Stainless Steel Lids allows cooks to steam vegetables and make homemade sauces and crispy tofu with ease. In addition to evenly distributing heat when cooking, these stainless steel lids lock in the moisture when preparing steamed dishes. Furthermore, each piece in this set provides options for preparing an array of foods such as stir-fries, veggie burgers, and grains.
