You work too hard not to have a kitchen that works for you. Not everyone comes from a homecooking family, and even if they do, working all day, chasing kids all day and just doing all the stuff that it takes to stay alive today is not conducive to sweating over the stove at the end of it. But that doesn’t mean cooking isn’t in the cards for you, it just means you have to get smarter about the way you stock your kitchen.

Incorporating even one of these appliances into your kitchen tools will leave you with more time to relax while dinner is being prepared—and who doesnt want that? You don’t have to be the kind of cook your mother was to become your very own version of a home cook.
