Back in the day, we did not have much when it came to kitchen gadgets. In fact, we were lucky if we had more than a saucepan, a frying pan, and a spaghetti pot. Nowadays, there are tons of new gadgets that are super helpful in the kitchen. Some gadgets, though, are just made for lazy people and end up taking more space because they hardly get used. We have compiled a list of gadgets that are more useful than not.
According to Wikipedia, an air fryer works by circulating super hot air that makes your food get an extra crispy outer layer. This gives the same effect submerging your food in hot grease but without all of the downsides of eating and preparing fried foods. They are very convenient to own and the food prepared inside is much healthier for you to consume.

They are great for those who do not have much time for cooking in the evenings.

The Instant Pot is right along the same lines as the crock pot, but it cooks everything much faster. Plus, it is a lot safer to use than a normal pressure cooker. My favorite thing to cook in the instant pot is whole chicken. I can have the meat falling off of the bones in just 30 minutes. It is also great if you planned a crock pot meal but forgot to get it going. You can cook the same meal in this in a fraction of the time using your Instant Pot.

The huller easily removes the stem, then the slicer gives you perfectly even slices that are great for making desserts. Your strawberry shortcake will look like it was made by a pro using these tools.
This is one of those things that we might categorize as a "lazy" device, but I guarantee you that it definitely too handy to have in your kitchen. It is perfect for cutting up an apple to give as a treat to your little ones, however, we find it is best when making apple pie. You can core and have equal sizes of apple slices in your pie making it look perfect.
