Summer is in full swing, and it seems the heat has made itself at home. We’re already missing the mild spring temperatures and wish they had taken a bit longer to bid us farewell.

The rising temperatures also mean you want to spend less time in the kitchen, and get things done as quickly as possible in there. And with Ramadan around the corner, it’s going be one tough task to cook.

Well, fear not, for technology has come to our rescue yet again. Here are 4 nifty gadgets that vow to make your life easier this summer:

Portable Juicer

Doesn’t the idea of carrying your juicer almost everywhere you go sound interesting? Well, the idea is now a reality! The importance of getting enough liquids in this weather cannot be emphasized enough, and since we’re blessed with an amazing variety of fruits in Pakistan, we can make some yummy and healthy juices on the go.

Portable Juice

This amazing creation is charged through a USB cable, and has a touch-sensitive power button (cool, huh?). It also has an arm strap, so you can carry it anywhere. The wide top makes it easy to put in ingredients on the go. Just pop in some fruits and water and give it a whirl! You can buy the portable juicer here.

Losong Multi-Function Vegetable Slicer with Crisper

This one’s going to prove to be a life-saver on those hot summer days when your brain loathes the idea of going into the kitchen, but your stomach is aching for some yummy crisps or a refreshing salad. Fret not, for this slicer can be used in the sanctuary of your cool lounge! Just grab those vegetables and slice away. You won’t need to stand in the kitchen using a chopping board this season.

Multi-Function Pizza and Roti Maker

Ladies and gentlemen! Allow me to introduce you to the miraculous gadget that solves half of all your cooking conundrums!

Pizza Maker

Want to know what all it can do? Well, it can make round and soft rotis; makes pizza; grills fish; cooks rice; and bakes cakes. With its changeable cooking plates, there are many more possibilities as well.

We’re guessing some of you are already thinking why you have cooks in your house when you can just buy this piece of awesomeness and leave the cooking to it? To top it off, it’s also safe enough for kids to use, so you can finally let them experiment in the kitchen. All you would have to do is prep the ingredients and leave the rest to the pizza and roti maker. Check it out here.

Beaut Hand Mangler

This is another product that will save you from spending extra time in the kitchen, which can become a human oven in this weather. The hand mangler is great at crushing ice or grinding some meat for that stash of kababs you are planning to make for the upcoming Iftaar parties.

Ever since I was a kid, eating has been a hobby. Once I grew up, I started stepping into the kitchen more often. Although I love to cook everything but baking is something I am very passionate about. Its my therapy and it definitely takes me to my happy place. Ofcourse, this hobby of mine also caters to my hyper sweet tooth as well, which is an added bonus. Because baking is something that I have learnt from my mother so it has a very emotional value for me. Since times immemorial I have seen my mom experiment with baking in the kitchen, I like to believe she has passed that skill on to me as well (I know i can never surpass her awesomeness).
