My husband is a chef and, bizarrely, his long work hours mean that most meals are cooked by me, a non-chef. We have three young kids and I work full-time, so it’s pretty tough to crank out quality, home-cooked meals on a daily basis. That’s why I’m so obsessed with kitchen gadgets like the gear made by Ninja—which are 40 percent off at Amazon today.

These products do everything for you, short of the actual meal prep. You just toss your ingredients inside, push a button and take care of everything else that needs doing while your food cooks. It’s kinda like having someone else do dinner for you, making this the perfect addition to your busy life. Check these time-savers out.
This pressure cooker also doubles as an air fryer and tender crisper, allowing you to whip up yummy, crunchy meals in a jiffy. Ninja’s tender crisp technology allows you to quickly cook ingredients, then the crisping lid gives your meals a golden finish. The pressure cook mode works up to 70 percent faster versus traditional cooking methods, an you can air fry with up to 75 percent less fat than traditional frying methods. Versus slow-cooked, braised, or low-simmer recipes; Tested against hand-cut, deep-fried french fries. And, at 6.5 quarts, this is big enough to cook a roast (or whatever else you can dream of) for your entire family.
"This thing does everything except open my garage door," a five-star fan said. "I like the fact that I can just place the ingredients inside and walk away while I continue to conduct my life and I'm assured of perfect results nearly every time. ...Technically, I can prepare an entire meal with the push of one button. I've not tried it yet, but it's nice to know that I can. Only one pot to wash, plus a couple of plates and stuff. What's not to like about that?"

Choose between six preset Auto-iQ programs for one-touch smoothies, frozen drinks, smoothie bowls, spreads, chopping and dough.
"We have been making smoothies for years. This is by far the best blender we’ve used by far," a happy customer said. "We use the Auto iQ bowl setting to make thicker smoothies. Turns out perfect every time. Fast and effortless!"
