3. Tools (shipped to your home) To Help Prepare (and eat) Meals

Have you found out with MS that you are no longer able to cut, by hand, vegetables called for in that recipe you want to make? An electric chopper would make that task easier to make the recipe. Do you need the right size of  pan for that pasta dish? Do you need a bigger mixer to make a bigger batch of fresh cookies? After all, not ALL the cookies need to go to the bake sale. You have to have some at home to eat too! Then just click on here to shop for the utensils , cookware, or small appliances you need to make the recipe easier to make. Do you have decreased hand strength and holding silverware is more difficult to eat? Look here to shop for “ableware” to put on your own silverware handles to give you a wider handle to hold on to. They are even dishwasher safe to make clean up easier. Then have it shipped to your home and you don’t have to go out and shop for them  from store to store. Some places even deliver groceries so be sure to check that out in your area also!

The newest appliance to make meals even quicker, easier and healthier is an instant One Pot.  The instant One Pot Duo 6 Quart 7-in-1 programmable multi-cooker is a multi-use programmable cooker. A pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, saute’, yogurt maker, and warmer. It comes with a stainless steel steaming rack with handles, rice paddle, soup spoon, measuring cup, a condensation collector, and a recipe book. To maximize performance, they suggest only using actual Instant Pot accessories. Plus it comes in 3-quart, 6-quart, and 8-quart depending on the size of your family. Information on the instant pot courtesy of Once A Month Meals (OAMM).  OAMM has (recipes to freeze first) for the One Pot and they don’t even have to be thawed to use them! Just put the frozen meal in there and have it ready to eat in no time at all.

COSORI 6-Qt. Multi-Cooker from Amazon

I plan to get a COSORI 6 quart 8-in-1 programmable 1000 Watt multi-cooker. It has 6 different cooking functions; bake, saute’ and brown, boil, steam, slow cooker, and pressure cook. In addition to that you can use it as a rice cooker, saute’ pan, yogurt maker, hot pot, steamer and warmer. You can even cook eggs and bake cakes! It comes with a  tempered glass lid for other than pressure cooking, a stainless steel steamer rack with handles, an extra silicone sealing ring, a ladle, rice spoon, measuring cup, and recipe book. COSORI has a 2-quart, 6-quart, and 8 qtart. Both brands are made in China, but researching for my own pick, 1 reviewer said she thought the steamer rack was heavier in the COSORI than the Instant Pot?! But for myself it seemed to be a personal choice. I think it’s like every kitchen appliance, you have to do some shopping and looking for yourself and compare features, use, and price. I think it will be nice cooking in the summertime. You have a good meal, but you aren’t heating up the stove and you don’t have to have the grilled food all the time if you want a break.

I haven’t got mine yet.    I’ll have more to report when I get it and get a chance to try it out, but my sister-in-law- LOVES hers she got for Christmas and finds it hard to use anything else. I’m not sure what brand she got, but she keeps it accessible for frequent use. It’s hard to get a whole meal at home much quicker than that!I’ll have more to report when I get it and get a chance to try it out.

I also noticed, while looking at multi-cookers, Amazon sells many cookbooks dedicated to multi-cookers, dedicated to the KitchenAid Artisan  Stand Mixers, and fabric covers for them both, extra sealing rings, and other accessories if you just look. Here is a COSORI multi-cooker cookbook. That I’m thinking about when I get my COSORI multi-cooker. That way I don’t have to figure out how to convert recipes from the web. At least until I learn how to use it. Once I learn about the multi-cooker, it won’t be a problem using other recipes!
