Kick­ing your health goals is a snap with these clever kitchen de­vices. Dish it up!

I ❤ Easiyo Yogurt Maker, $18, bigw.com.au

Lot­tie Dalziel, WH Dig­i­tal Con­tent Man­ager

“This non-elec­tric de­vice only re­quires two mins of prep be­fore be­ing left overnight to pro­duce a kilo of yo­ghurt. It helps me cut back on waste and the re­sult tastes de­li­cious!”

The waste-saver

Food­saver Con­trolled Seal, $299, har­veynor­man.com.au

If your de­fault cook­ing mode is, ‘Shit, I need to use up this in­gre­di­ent as it’s about to go off,’ this is the gad­get for you. A #meal­prep dream, it lets you vacuum-pack food in bags to keep it fresh for way longer than your usual stor­age ap­proach. Plus, the whole thing is much eas­ier to use than it sounds like it should be.

The pod-free cof­fee ma­chine

Sunbeam Barista Max, $699, sunbeam.com.au

Want to swerve your exxy lo­cal cafe (and its tempt­ing baked goods) more this year? This chic at-home espresso ma­chine grinds the beans be­fore brew­ing up your morn­ing fix. Throw in the easy-to-use touch sys­tem and a cool cafe-style steam wand (hey, vel­vety milk) and you’ve ba­si­cally got your own barista. Mi­nus the hip­ster charm and wrong pro­nun­ci­a­tion of your name, that is.

The cold juicer

Bre­ville The Juice Foun­tain Cold XL, $449, har­veynor­man.com.au

The ad­van­tage of go­ing down the cold path with juic­ing? The lower temps used mean more nu­tri­ents and en­zymes are left in­tact. Sleek, quiet and pow­er­ful, this baby is the 007 of juicers. Chuck in whole fruit and ve­g­ies, and it’ll spit out two litres of top­notch drink in a jiffy.

The pro poacher

Bre­ville The One° Pre­ci­sion Poacher, $199.95, bre­ville.com/au

Poached, steamed, boiled, scram­bled ... this fan­cy­pants ma­chine whips you up the per­fect eggs. Or, get your chef on with the sous vide set­ting – that French tech­nique you hear about in cook­ing shows, where meat and the like are heated at low temps in a wa­ter bath to en­sure even cook­ing. Manu, eat your heart out.

The fast flavour- booster

To­mor­row’s Kitchen In­stant Mar­i­nater, $59.95, haleim­ports.com.au

Last-minute bar­be­cue? No dra­mas. Just chuck your meat, fish or ve­g­ies in this con­trap­tion and it’ll ten­derise and mar­i­nate them in a flash. How’s it so speedy, you ask? It works by cre­at­ing a vacuum that opens up the pores and fi­bres of the pro­duce, so your mari­nade in­gre­di­ents can soak in and work their tasty magic.

The in­tu­itive blender

Nutribul­let Bal­ance, $279, myer.com.au

Get ready to have your mind blown. This new in­car­na­tion of the nutri­tion-ex­tract­ing clas­sic comes with an app that weighs your smoothie/juice/soup/dip in­gre­di­ents in real time, be­fore serv­ing up the nutri­tional break­down (macros, sugar, calo­ries). You can also ac­cess recipes and cre­ate well­ness plans. So smart.
