A KitchenAid stand mixer is a powerhouse appliance on its own. (See why it’s our Test Kitchen’s favorite!) But once you consider all of the different attachments—like pasta makers, food processors and meat grinders—it can replace almost every other gadget in your kitchen!
If you have a kitchen drawer overflowing with gizmos and gadgets galore, pare it down with this genius 8-in-1 tool. It features a funnel, citrus squeezer, spice grater, cheese grater, measuring cup, egg masher, egg separator and can opener. Plus, everything stacks together into one sleek, bottle-shaped tool. Handy, right?
Hundreds of dollars might seem like a lot of money to spend on a blender, but the Vitamix is so much more than that. The high-powered motor is strong enough to actually cook soups as it blends! You can toss out your juicer, because the Vitamix can do that, too. See our Test Kitchen’s other recommended blenders.
Here’s a kitchen gadget that might be even better than your stand mixer. It kneads and stirs; whips, chops and purees. But the All Clad Prep & Cook doesn’t just replace your food processor and blender: It also slow cooks and steams!
Can’t decide if you want a toaster oven, a microwave or a dehydrator? Get them all (plus a deep fryer, rotisserie oven and pizza grill) with a 7-in-1 Air Fryer. It won’t take long to understand why so many people love this oil-less frying method!
You can cook pretty anything using with this precision cooker: meats, vegetables, sauces and more. Plus, you can start, stop or adjust cooking anywhere with Wi-Fi connectivity.
Turn your regular ol’ toaster oven into a multi-function master with the Smart Oven. It’ll toast your bagels, along with ten other preset functions like baking pies, cookies and pizza. Because it uses convection to circulate hot air around your food, it cooks about 30% faster than your regular oven.
Bring this electric multi-cooker straight to the table and grill, simmer, or steam your food to order. Shabu Shabu (also known as hot pot) is the ultimate family meal experience. It’s perfect for cold days, or you can switch to the grill and make Korean BBQ when the weather warms up.
This kitchen gadget is nothing short of amazing. I would have gladly traded in my college dorm’s George Foreman grill for one of these! This breakfast station brews coffee, but it also has a multi-function toaster oven and a non-stick griddle large enough to cook breakfast for four. I love it!
