Hubby and I both work 4-5 days a week and find ourselves really time poor for making healthy dinners. What are your recommendations for appliances that we can use to help? Things like a Thermomix. Are they worth it?

  • my air fryer and blender for quick pancake style dinners.

  • I love my slow cooker and my thermomix!

  • I used pressure cooker, its very fast.

  • I love a hand blender, takes seconds to perfectly blend soups and sauces. The one I have came with multiple attachments, including a food processor and whisk. It’s so handy, I use it all the time. The food processor is perfect for salsas and pesto.

  • We use our multicooker all the time and make batches of food that lasts two days

  • Pressure cookers are quick. Slow cookers are good, start cooking before you go to work and it’s done when you return home. Air fryers are good for speeding things up too. Organisation helps a lot too. Know what you’re having each night

  • I love my pressure cooker! I just chuck some chicken, potatoes, carrots and recipe base in, takes 30 mins to cook and the meat and veg are soft and sooooo delicious! Does beef strogonoff and goulash amazing too!

  • Slow cooker and air fryer. Meal prep and have veggies cut up the start of the week

  • Slow cooker on all day ????????
    We also meal plan so whoever is home first just starts tea, when groceries is delivered Sunday we cut up the broccoli and cauliflower in a container for the week. Veggies can be cut up the night before and put in water so just tip them in the steamer or air fryer for roast veggies.

  • Definitely a thermomix and/or slow cooker

  • Air fryer and a pressure cooker (can do slow cooked level stuff in much less time).

  • Airfryer if you do not have one already. Must recommend for roast and other meals. Make sure you find one with options such as bake, boil, and other cooking modes. It makes life much easier

  • Thermomixes are very expensive but all who use one are happy with them. I personally love stir fries and cook them a lot and although freezing portions is a good time saver, I find the texture changes from freezing the meal so prefer to make fresh as often as I can.

  • Oops! that should read wok in the comment below and not work!

  • Stir fry meals, pasta meals and slow cooker meals are always easy to prepare and cook. Savoury quiches and slices are also good to prepare in advance and then ready to eat. We use the work, pots, slow cooker and oven to make these meals.
