Grabbing an affordable meal at the local hawker centre may be tempting enough –  however at times whether it be looking to make a healthy meal for the kids, or preparing a meal for guests –  the need for cooking will arise!

Yet with us time sensitive Singaporeans, cooking can also ultimately feel like the biggest chore – sweating over the kitchen for hours upon hours that’ll have you smelling like the food you just made!

That’s where kitchen gadgets come in. With ability to make with ease the most perfect fluffy rice, crispy golden waffles and the tastiest BBQ chicken they’re pretty much a necessity to have. And of course when it comes to affordable kitchen gadgets, Singapore clearly lags behind.

So to help you out, here are some ultra-useful kitchen appliances and gadgets from around the world that will promise to save you time in the kitchen!
