Talking about time-saving products, if you haven’t owned an instant pot till now, my question is “How have you survived?!”. The Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 replaces (as the name suggests) 7 appliances, thus freeing up some space in your kitchen. It is a slow cooker, pressure cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, sauté pan and has a function to keep the food warm.
For busy parents who haven’t got a lot of time to cook healthy, delicious meals, this Instant Pot is the answer. Now is the perfect time to get one.
You need this and you know it!
How long does it take you to chop all those vegetables for the meals you’re preparing? If you’re like me, it means that you’re spending many minutes cutting veggies and making sure your fingers stay whole.
This fantastic Vegetable Chopper will solve this issue and save you valuable time when cooking. It comes with 4 interchangeable blades that allow you to chop, slice and julienne fruit and vegetables. Chop everything with the help of the built-in lid that cuts food directly into the tray which means no knives and chopping boards to wash. More time saving right there!
We can’t talk about time saving products for working moms without mentioning this fabulous food processor. It slices, chops, purees, shreds and minces, everything in a matter of seconds.

This marvellous gadget allows you to have perfect eggs every time. It makes hard, medium or soft eggs, plus it comes equipped with an omelette and poaching tray.
Not only does it cook eggs quicker but you can be sure to have perfect eggs every time. The machine switches off automatically when the eggs reach the desired doneness which means that you don’t have to keep an eye on the time.

Hamilton Beach Dual Sandwich Maker is the perfect tool for your custom made, warm sandwiches. I love that you can add several layers of sandwich fillers including an egg. The way the sandwich maker was built will ensure that your sandwich stays together and the ingredients are perfectly done.

How many times has it happened to you to plan a meal that involved you taking some frozen meat out of the freezer to thaw only to realize an hour before starting cooking that you forgot to take out the meat?
In my case, it happens a lot. So, I have to quickly come up with another meal plan. What a pain!
Not anymore! Evelots Defrosting Tray defrosts meat 3 times faster than just leaving it on a plate in the kitchen. The manufacturer says that it takes 30-60 minutes for thick chicken breast, pork chops, fish, steak, or lamb chops to defrost.
The tray is made of the finest grade Aluminum that helps to accelerate the warmth, by pulling the heat from the surroundings, effectively and efficiently, thus, defrosting quickly.
Time Saving house gadgets
Cleaning the floors is not one of my favourite chores and it’s probably not yours either. A survey conducted by the cleaninginstitute.org in 2018 revealed that the average person spends about 6 hours a week cleaning- 7 hours if you are a parent. Imagine being able to cut a few hours off that time without compromising on cleanliness.
Now you can easily do this with this smart little gadget called the iRobot Roomba Vacuum. It is Wi-Fi connected and works with Alexa. It offers personalized cleaning schedules and routes. It is equipped with sensors that will allow it to navigate efficiently around your house without bumping into anything or falling down the stairs.
Corners are well taken care of with its Edge-Sweeping brush. Impressed? One more thing: its sensors allow iRoomba to “learn” the areas in your home with more traffic so it will clean those more thoroughly.
