I was just washing up the crusty dishes that DH helpfully put in "to soak" and used some pampered chef plastic scraper to get the grot off and thought how simple yet clever (yes I might the two cheapest items at a party years ago).
I feel like I need more stuff like this. Small or large but to make my life easier. Tell me yours ? I fancy being nosy and I'm bored

My best purchase is a potato masher. It’s called Masha, from Lakeland. It’s amazing making perfect mash potato every time.
Also for a birthday present one year, my parents bought me a KitchenAid artisan mixer which is totally amazing, best mixer I have ever had!

Love my dehumidifier ( so satisfying to pour away collected water. And my milk frother ( plug in with whisk & heats milk) every time I use it my heart sings 🤗

@Manzana what's a Danish tin opener?

Cordless hoover.
I still can't believe how lucky I am that hoovering has become so easy!
Also my kindle. Reading in bed without needing a lamp on is so much better.

Karcher window vac - makes window cleaning a pleasure (almost).

My Nespresso machine.

It's used daily, and I still get such pleasure from it.

Shopping for pods is my hobby. Sad, I know.

Dyson AirWrap, use it most days, worth every single penny.

Frazzlefrazle · 21/05/2021 06:24

Smart plugs. I love getting cosy in bed and then just asking google to turn the bedroom lamp off instead of having to roll over and flick the switch. So lazy I know.

Panasonic breadmaker. Cheapest one. So simple to use. Delicious bread Grin

This from Lakeland and a robot hoover that hoovers and mops on a night - life changing!

This also, it’s fab.

A decent food processor. My arthritis dictates my ability to cook but the food processor has helped keep me in the kitchen, it has lots of functions so it's an orange squeezer, chopper, mixer, grater, mini chopper and who knows what else.

Oh yes it can make chips - but they are curved!

Whoopsies · 21/05/2021 06:46

Ninja Foodi. I really do cook almost everything in it, I rarely turn on my oven anymore!!

Fancy potato peeler with a blade on either side so you run it up and down to peel. Super quick and easy.

I have the same but not fancy at all, 60p from Morrisons Grin

Bissell green machine . It’s a mini carpet/upholstery cleaner. Total game changer when you have kids pets .

I’m trying to save money this month and this isn’t helping. At what point do you stop eyeing up lovely clothes and start obsessing over lemon squeezers?

DentonsFringeArnottsWaistcoat · 21/05/2021 06:54

Aerolatte milk frother, Velvetiser, Melitta coffee machine and a Ninja blender. Between them, even though the coffee machine was £££s we’ve still saved a fortune on the kind of smoothies, lattes, Frappuccinos and chocolates we used to buy from the likes of Starbucks over the last few years, and they’re nicer and healthier.

It’s in my bedside drawer 💥.

Air fryer.
