It is because of the non-competitive (old) usage of the home/cooking appliances. Below I have mentioned few of the home/cooking appliances that can save your cooking time drastically and lets you enjoy the time in other purposes.

Coffeemakers

Coffeemakers or coffee machines are the marvelous cooking appliances with all the greatest abilities to brew a tasteful coffee in an effortless manner. In the coffee machines, coffee grounds are placed in a paper or metal filter inside a funnel which is set over a glass or ceramic coffee pot, a cooking pot in the kettle family. Cold water is poured into a separate chamber which is then heated up to the boiling point and directed into the funnel.

How much time does it save?

With the help of fast brew technology, coffee machines can brew a coffee within 1 to 2 minutes (depending on the ounce counts), comparatively it can take upto 10 minutes to make a coffee otherwise. More than time-saving, these machines allow you to concentrate on the other works while it brews the coffee by itself. Due to the presence of auto shut-off facility, the coffee stays warmer for 2 hours from the time of brewing, so the time to reheat is considerably saved!

Key benefits:

  2. Homemade coffee machines can save upto a hefty amount of $835.85 per year — the price of a mini vacation.
  3. Machine-made coffees are more tastier and accurate
  4. These machines can also make a save on the fuel (gas, Kerosene) consumption.

Dishwasher

Dishwasher is a mechanical device which is used to clean the cooking utensils automatically. The mechanical dishwasher cleans by spraying the hot water typically in between 55 to 75 °C (130 to 170 °F) at the dishes with lower temperatures used for delicate items. A mix of water and detergent is used for the cleaning purposes, followed by clean water to remove the detergent residue, then a drying period with hot circulated air. Some dishwashers have multiple wash and rinse periods within the complete cycle. In some types of dishwashers, a rinsing aid (also called rinse agent) can be added to the rinse cycle to improve the drying process and to avoid water spots which remains on the dry items.

According to a statistical report, dishwashers can save upto 230 hours of time! Use the baking soda in any type of water and load them right up! Dishwashers can also clean your dishes more effectively than the hand washing procedure.

Key benefits:

Reports have stated that the dishwasher uses 8-11 gallons of water in comparison to 20 gallons of water used for manual washing (per time at the sink) the dish. If you run the dishwasher once a day, you use 8-12 gallons of water whereas if you wash manually after each meal, you could be using 60 gallons.

Sanitizing and cleaning activities with your dishwasher is far more efficient and quick. Reports also reveal that the average bacteria count for machine-washing is below 1 for each plate whereas the presence of bacteria on dishes from the manual washing procedure average a whopping 390 count per plate!

Electric cloth dryer

The motor of the chopper is powerful enough to chop vegetables, fruits, herbs, cheese, nuts, chocolate, cooked meats and bread. The power head has a soft grip for easy “one-handed” use. The rugged plastic bowl has slip-resistant base which doubles as the bowl lid for storing the food items. The stainless-steel blade present in the chopper is dishwasher-friendly!

How much time do they save?

With the aid of these choppers, you can chop the onions in just 2 seconds – the automatic feeding & discharge features can save the lot of time. Ergonomically designed, it’s comfortable and easy to blast through the chopping tasks and most-importantly the chopping tasks would become so easy in the kitchen.

1. The tubular feed-throat present in the chopper can be used to cut any types of long shaped vegetables.

2. The chopper is made of stainless steel and aluminum, so it is very hygienic and safe.

Microwave ovens

Microwave ovens are most commonly addressed as ‘Microwave’. It is a stylish and elegant kitchen appliance that heats the polarized molecules of the food VIA dielectric heating accomplished with radiations. Microwave ovens heat the food items quickly and efficiently because excitation is fairly uniform in the outer 25–38 mm, of a dense (high water content) food item; food is more evenly heated without any breakouts.

How much time does a microwave oven save?

Due to the super heating nature and high efficiency, microwave ovens can heat the foods pretty quickly. As it has the preset timer selection, it is possible for you to keep the food pot for heating purpose and move to other works in the kitchen. Also Microwave’s multitasking abilities can let you heat two or more cook items at a time. Hence it saves your time and reduces the workload.

Key benefits:

1. Useful for rapid heating of cooking items such as hot butter, fats and chocolate

2. Cookware used in a microwave oven is often much cooler than the food because the cookware is transparent to microwave oven whereas the conventional stoves can cause more serious burns.

3. Microwave cooking does not change the nutrient content of foods to a larger extent than the normal gas stove heating (conventional heating).

Induction Stoves

Induction cooking adapts ‘induction heating’ methodology to heat the cooking vessel. To use the induction cooktop, a cooking vessel must be made up of a ferromagnetic metal (ferromagnetic cookware products act as the second conductor which allows the electric current to get induced into it. The electricity is converted into heat inside the cookware) or placed on an interface disk which allows the non-induction cookware to be used on the induction cooking surfaces.

How much time does it save?

Induction stove saves lot of time because energy is directly transferred within the pan metal, cooking on an electric induction range is extremely fast – even faster than gas stove. In the foodservice industry time is considered to be equivalent to the money. A fast cooking surface results in short preparation time which helps to add up the profit.

Key benefits:

1. You don’t have to worry too much about the ventilation.

2. Since there is no open flame, red-hot coil and other radiant heat source to ignite the fumes or flammable materials, electric induction cooktop is the safer option than the gas or other electric surfaces.

All these appliances are the outcome of growing technology. Today, the technology has reached the invincible height and it has changed the very attitude of our day-to-day life. The technology has winded up its abilities to improve and enhance the existing solution. If we think about a tag for the term technology, well here it is, “Convert the impossible into possible” – Technology is truly a game changer.
