The Lazy Chef's Guide to Cooking: 15 Gadgets You Need Right Now

The Lazy Chef's Guide to Cooking: 15 Gadgets You Need Right Now

Throw your guilt out the window and buy these time-saving tools.

The kitchen is the heart of every home—but it can also be a daunting place for those of us to whom cooking doesn’t come naturally. Yes, I own a set of beautiful knives. But that doesn’t mean my knife skills are Quickfire Challenge-ready. And yes, I have an over-the-top Dutch oven…but, you guessed, that doesn’t mean I know how to throw together a beef bourguignon.

Which is why I love me a kitchen gadget that makes cooking or prepwork easier and saves me time. Sure, I could chop up my vegetables with a plain ol’ knife, but as I mentioned earlier, my skills leave a lot to be desired. So yes, I will throw that veggie prep station into my shopping cart. And sure, I could force my family to eat the corn right off the cob—but then I’d be flossing my kids’ teeth for the next week. So yeah, I’m gonna throw the corn zipper in the cart, too. And you should as well, because from one lazy chef to another, I promise you we’re not judging.
