Let’s face it—we could all use some extra help around the house to make our lives a little easier. Luckily, we’ve hand-picked an assortment of time-saving home gadgets to take on the repetitive tasks you dread so that you can relax. You’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.
1. Cook hands-free with an automatic pan stirrer
An upper body workout is good for you, but stirring food until your arm falls off—not so much. Not only can it get tiresome, but it also prevents you from walking away from the stove. Whether you’re making oatmeal or soups, get an extra pair of hands in the kitchen and prevent food from clumping at the bottom of the pan with an automatic pan stirrer. You heard right—it does the wrist work for you at various speeds, and is a convenient option for dishes that require a little extra attention so you can do other things.
2. Sweep smart with a robot vacuum
If you’re not a fan of dragging around a noisy vacuum and its unruly chord, a robot vacuum can help ease the burden of cleaning your floors with very little effort on your part. This small but mighty disc-shaped appliance may look intimidating, but you can send your new mechanical assistant on a cleaning mission with just the touch of a button. Some have smart control cleanings that can be pre-scheduled through an app and even return to the charging dock on their own when the job is done.
3. Get a grip with a jar lid opener
Never struggle with unscrewing jars again with an under cabinet jar lid opener. This nifty tool is designed to effortlessly remove tricky lids with a quick twist. Simply attach under cupboards, counters, or shelves to easily grip and open lids of any size with just one hand. It’s also clutter-free and perfect for those with arthritis who can use helpful assistance.
4. Make meal prep fuss-free with an electronic chopper
The task of chopping vegetables can be incredibly time-consuming and downright messy. A food chopper will save space, keep things contained, and take the hard work out of slicing, cutting, and shredding your way to a veggie-packed meal.
5. Keep your pet’s tummy full with a smart feeder
The days of being an on-demand personal waiter for your furry friend will come to an end with a programmable pet food dispenser. You’ll have the convenience of customizing their feeding schedule and portion size while keeping them on a consistent eating schedule. Plus, you won’t have to worry about your pet going hungry while you’re away from home.
6. Up your plant care game with self-watering globes
Whether you are going on a short trip or just have trouble remembering to water your plants, watering globes are an easy and decorative way to keep the soil hydrated for 1-2 weeks. Just fill the globe with water and insert it into the soil. A steady dose of water will automatically be released when the soil dries for happy plants and a happy chore-free you!
