How to Automate Your Kitchen (10 ways)

As we move through the years, so many of our utensils have been upgraded and automated without us noticing. This blog will demonstrate exactly that, and how easy and affordable it is to automate your kitchen. Saving you time and making your life just that much easier.

1) Automatic soap dispenser

With us all having to wash our hands thoroughly multiple times a day,investing in a sensor/automatic soap dispenser is a great idea. You reduce the number of touch points by each person, reducing the risk of passing on disease. This product is refillable with your own soap, so you can experiment with aromas you prefer. Another bonus is that it gives you the correct quantity, so that there is not waste of material.

2) Automatic Pan Stirrer

This time saving gadget is a real help in the kitchen, and is almost like having an extra set of hands. I personally use it to make fantastic scrambled eggs, to stop my baked beans burning onto the bottom of the pan, and also making silky smooth sauces. It’s able to be used in all pans, non-stock ones too. The only downside is that it only comes in one size, which could potentially cause a problem around the edges.

Peeling vegetables and fruit can really take up your valuable time, especially if you are catering for the masses, for example at Christmas.

5) Automatic Hand Whisk

Whether it is making a trifle or a cheesecake, thickening cream can take a while. An automatic handwhisk can shorten this time by about 10 minutes. Not only can you use it for thickening creams, but also making cakes, cookies and other recipes. This is not a must have but a need. We use our electric handwhisk more than once a week, so it’s a worthwhile purchase.

6) Electric Knife Sharpener

Knife sharpening is often something people can forget about, whilst looking after their utensils. This electric sharpener allows you to be a pro chef, within the walls of your own home. Not only will it effect the performance of your knives, it will also preserve them, so that ultimately you get more for you what you originally paid for. It may seem expensive, for something you may not deem necessary, but it could prolong the life of your knife set for up to 3 years, so really it’s a bargain in disguise.
