The Excalibur dehydrator is what the pros use. You can make everything from fruit leather to your own homemade beef jerky. One of the greatest benefits of owning an Excalibur dehydrator is that you can make and store prepared meals in case of emergency.
By simply steaming food prior to dehydrating, you “pre-cook” the food and only need to add water to rehydrate. So whether you are a “prepper” or are just waiting for the next summer/winter storm to knock out power for a few days having a few “ready-to-go” dehydrated meals can be a life saver, literally.
Whether you are a hunter that prefers to live off of the land so to speak, or your preferred diet is for vegetarian/vegan, a food dehydrator is for everyone. From fruits and vegetables to meats, you can make and store snacks with a long shelf life or cover your families eating needs over the course of the winter.
As mentioned above, you can make many raw foods with a dehydrator as well. Food that has not been heated higher than 104 degrees F is considered raw as the state of the food has retained its nutritional value. Some raw foodists argue that food heated higher than the aforementioned temperature is less healthy or even somewhat harmful to the human body.
KitchenAid Stand Mixer
The KitchenAid Stand Mixer is in millions of homes across the country and for good reason. Whether you are simply making a cake from scratch or taking on the challenge of mixing ingredients for a large party, KitchenAid mixers are top notch.
Again, a brand like KitchenAid doesn’t just build a reputation over night. Every chef, mother, grandmother, and even great grandmother probably has a KitchenAid because they simplify life in the kitchen.
If you’re baking, a KitchenAid mixer is a must, but it can even make pasta and ice cream. If you’re health conscious you can get really creative and whip up some homemade rice or quinoa pasta. You can even try to make dairy-free ice cream. There are no limits to what this mixer can do. Well there is one. Your imagination.
Hopefully you will see that not only will these four appliances simplify your life in the kitchen, but they are honestly must haves. All range between $250 – $500 dollars, but will be more than worth it in the long term.
Here’s some advice. Purchase a juice first because there are many things you can juice that you can’t blend. You can then use the juice in a blender and a mixer alike. You should eventually own each of these appliances to simplify your life in the kitchen and achieve optimal health for your and your family. What is most relevant to your life now?
