3 Cooking Gadgets to Save Your Sanity

When you feel like you need a break from constant cooking and cleanup but still need to get dinner on the table, let your trusty kitchen gadgets save the day! Savory makes it easy with next-to-no prep meals made in your slow cooker, Instant Pot, and microwave. It’s like having a kitchen helper do all the work for you.

These seven easy recipes use kitchen tools to cut out almost all hands-on cooking so that meals practically take care of themselves. 

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas

Store-bought shortcuts like rotisserie chicken and jarred salsa verde let you skip right to assembling the enchiladas. They bake to perfection in the slower cooker. Just top with green onions and serve.

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

Classic French onion soup calls for lots of caramelized onions, which usually means lots and lots of stirring. The slow cooker gives you the same silky, golden onions and a rich broth with almost no hands-on cooking.

Instant Pot Black Bean Chili

Your Instant Pot cooks dried beans in half the time with no overnight soak. This smoky vegetarian chili is ready in under an hour and makes enough for leftovers later. 

Instant Pot Greek-Style Meatballs with Feta

In under 30 minutes, your Instant Pot gives you tender beef meatballs and a rich tomato sauce that would have taken more than twice as long on the stove. No one will believe that you made both from scratch. 

Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash with Bacon and Spinach

Spaghetti squash can take almost an hour to become tender in the oven; your Instant Pot gets it done in 15 minutes. Combined with bacon, spinach, and Parmesan, it’s a simple, easy, delicious one-pot meal.

Salmon and Edamame Rice Bowl

Your microwave is your best friend when it comes to can’t-bare-to-cook meals. Every element in this satisfying salmon bowl cooks in the microwave. It couldn’t be faster or easier.  

Chicken and Rice Burritos

Taco Tuesday might just become burrito night with this microwave-only recipe. You only need to reheat the precooked rice and warm the chicken and salsa before assembling. Use store-bought fresh salsa and guacamole to save even more time.
