4. WMF Perfect Premium pressure cooker

In a time crunch? A pressure cooker can help. While pressure cookers of the past gained a bad rep for how dangerous they could be, modern-day pressure cookers are equipped with safety features that prevent excess pressure build-up and locking lid handles that will not open until the pressure is released from the pot.

The WMF Perfect Premium pressure cooker offers two settings—one at 105 degrees Celsius and the other at 115 degrees Celsius—as well as a detachable handle that will allow you to easily clean the appliance. Besides reducing the cooking time by up to 70%, the pressure cooker also retains a high level of vitamins, minerals and nutrients from your ingredients.

5. Ninja Air Fryer Max

Air fryers have rapidly gained popularity over the past few years. The trending appliance offers a fuss-free way to easily heat up food with hot-air circulation cooking your ingredients from all angles, whilst significantly decreasing the amount of oil absorbed, as compared to deep-frying.

Ninja’s Air Fryer Max comes equipped with a wide temperature range and six automatic functions, as well as a digital timer. The dishwasher-friendly parts also ensure that cleaning is a breeze. TikTok’s favourite recipe—the dreamy-looking cloud bread (which isn’t exactly bread; it’s more of a soft-baked meringue with a light and spongy texture)—can, in fact, be made in an air-fryer and not an oven. Have a go at it!
