4 Time-Saving Kitchen Gadgets Under $25!

My dream life consists of getting up at 6am and having a good hour to make, sit down, and eat a beautiful breakfast, sip my coffee and read the paper, all while still in my dressing gown. Currently, I get up between 4:30 and 5, eat my instant oatmeal while putting on makeup and pray my hot tea cools down enough for me to gulp down before heading out the door! I will probably never reach my nirvana bliss, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still have breakfast, a healthy lunch prepped for mid-day, and my morning coffee before arriving at the office! Today I’m sharing with you 4 (cheap!) kitchen appliances that make make busy mornings feel more productive and efficient!

Electric kettles are so underrated in my opinion. If I can find a way to stay away from my stove, I’m in! Who has time to wait for water to boil at 5:30 in the morning on a busy day?!  No one.  I use this little appliance every day for everything from tea to instant oatmeal. THIS one comes in 5 colors (including pink!) and is under $15.

I started using a pour-over coffee maker when I moved to Germany, but when I came back to the States I couldn’t find the euro sized paper filters for the pretty ceramic one I brought with me. I decided to just replace it so that filters would be easier to find. I happened upon this genius filterless version on my quest! Also, it’s gold, so I basically had to have itTHIS one is $25 and really ends up paying for itself after a few months of never having to buy filters again!

It’s ridiculously simple to use, saves time and is a snap to clean! I can make 1 or 7 boiled eggs at a time, which is perfect for busy mornings or a random, egg salad sandwich craving. After discovering THIS hack for instantly peeling hard boiled eggs I really can’t see a downside to investing $16 into this little machine!

I have this gadget to thank for increasing my green veggies intake! Somehow zucchini just tastes better in a noodle shape. It’s just science. I like to spiralize my cucumbers and zucchini on the medium size spiral, but the unit comes with three size choices. If I’ve waited too long to spiralize a cucumber, and it’s soft or really watery inside, I’ll use the largest cutter (see it in action in the gif below).

My mother-in-law gave me THIS one for my birthday and right now it comes with a free cookbook! Currently, I cut the zoodles into 5-6″ long pieces, toss with olive oil, sea salt and some chopped walnuts, almonds or cashews. You can literally top it with anything: Chicken, salmon, tuna, or of course, egg salad!
