Green in the Kitchen Part 2
So, you know that the electric coffee grinder, can opener, electric knife, juicer, and stand mixer can all be donated out of your kitchen to save energy and money, but which kitchen gadgets should you hang on to according to Consumer Reports? Keep your rice cooker for sure. Although this electric gadget does use energy, it’s preferable to turning on the stove to cook rice.
Your counter top grill is a good alternative to turning on the stove as well when you’re making a grilled cheese sandwich. And keep your countertop waffle iron for the same reason. Another gadget to keep? That Mortar and Pestle is great for grinding spices or for use as a manual food processor, and it will never require replacement parts! And your hand crank blender saves energy compared to that stand mixer.
