Kitchen Items That Will Make Your Life a Whole Lot Easier

While some may long for the balmy days of summer, there are certain allures of winter that cannot be denied, especially in South Orange, New Jersey.

Our quaint little township has quite a bit on offer and finding things to do in and around the area is as easy as having a look at one of our previous blogs where we discuss just that.

Cold and snowy weather is also perfect for hosting dinner parties in your apartment or even just cooking up something delicious for yourself and your family. However, kitchen disasters can happen even to the best of us but with our rapidly digitizing world, we have the opportunity to keep those dinner-was-burned-to-a-crisp moments few and far between.

Let’s take a look at some of the latest kitchen gadgets that you didn’t know you needed:

Perfect Roasts

Whether you’re having guests over or you’re just in the mood for something a bit special, roast beef or lamb is perfect. However, getting the temperature right can be tricky, which is where the Range meat thermometer comes in.

Similar to your average thermometer, you insert it into your meat. It differs in that its app lets you know when your cut of meat is perfectly cooked.

No More Guessing

One of the most annoying things when cooking or baking is realizing halfway through the recipe that you either don’t have a certain ingredient or don’t have enough of it. This could result in frantic Google searches as to how you can fix your dish. Say goodbye to these cooking catastrophes with the Drop Scale.

By working with its recipe app, the scale will be able to tell you which adjustments need to be made to your recipe as well as possible substitutions that you could make to ensure a successful dish. 

Smart Grocery List

Life is busy and we may forget to add those important grocery items to our list before we do our shopping. This is what Hiku wants to help you with.

The magnetic device stays on your fridge and uses voice recognition to add items to your digital shopping list. Then, when you get to the store, simply check the app and do your shopping.

It can also connect to online stores to make your grocery shopping experience even easier and more convenient.


Have a Delicious Stew Waiting for You When You Get Home

Winter is arguably the best season to make use of your slow cooker. The WeMo-enabled Crock-Pot allows you to enjoy sumptuous stews whenever the mood strikes.

All you need to do is switch on the Crock-Pot before you go to work and then monitor the temperature remotely. You can even switch it off via the app. Then, when you get home, simply pour a glass of wine and enjoy that Osso Bucco that’s been slow cooking all day.

If you’re ready to take your cooking to the next level, why not look into getting a few of these time-saving gadgets? Just be sure not to have too much fun while cooking in your Avenue at South Orange apartment. There are lots more culinary delights to explore in the area and in nearby New York.
