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!”
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.
