Small kitchen appliances, pots, and pans take up plenty of real estate around your kitchen. If it makes sense for you and you can swing the high price tag, Gonzalez recommends investing in a Thermomix to pare down. “It keeps me from having crowded counter space, cabinets, and drawers,” he says. The versatile appliance can chop, steam, blend, grind, sauté, and more, consolidating several bulky appliances and cooking tools into one machine. Gonzalez says his Thermamix replaced his blender, slow cooker, and duplicate pans.
