Kitchen essentials you need to save time in the kitchen

As summer reaches its peak, the thought of long hours spent in the kitchen becomes less and less appealing. And while there’s no escaping the need to prepare three meals a day, making sure your kitchen is full of time-saving kitchenware and cooking accessories can reduce the time you spend cooking – and increase the time you spend enjoying meals with family and friends, ideally al fresco. We’ve curated a selection of the top kitchen essentials you need to save time in the kitchen, without compromising your style.

Kitchen cooking accessories

Kitchen cooking accessories are the definition of functional – they’re designed to make life easier. But to reduce your time spent in the kitchen, it’s important to make sure you have all the tools you’ll need at your disposal before you start cooking. This design-led stone and gold spice grinder combines form as well as function, as does this salt and pepper mortar and pestle. While this traditional style measuring jug will add a pop of bold colour to your counter.

 Kitchen storage containers

To reduce your kitchen time on busier days, stock your kitchen with a selection of aesthetically pleasing storage jars. That way, you’ll have everything you need within easy reach (as long as you pick display-worthy pieces), meaning less time spent searching through and emptying cupboards when you’re preparing a meal. This peach and gold large storage jar and small storage jar are the perfect matching set, and this Moroccan bread basket can also be used for fruit or vegetables.

Quick recipes and modern cookbooks

The ultimate way to save time in the kitchen is by using time-saving, simple recipes – meals that are easy to prepare. Flip through and plan your meals ahead, or use them as quick inspiration whenever you catch yourself staring blankly into the refrigerator trying to visualise meals. We love Happy Food by Bettina Campolucci Bordi, 7 Day Vegan Challenge and Vegan Bowls.
