7 Kitchen Gadgets That Make Life Easy
While the NutriBullet is nothing new on our kitchen gadget radar, its newest product, NutriBullet Balance, changes the blending game. The Balance model is set apart because of its linked app, which provides recipes, nutrition data and portion control features. The app can also adjust to a variety of diets, including diabetic-friendly, weight management and heart healthy. The app syncs with your blender to measure out your ingredients as you pour, so you know exactly what’s going into your favorite smoothie. Find it for $99.99 HERE.

FoodSaver FM2100 Vacuum Sealing System
Buying in bulk is a sure way to save some money at the grocery store, but it can lead to a ton of food waste for smaller households. The FoodSaver system aims to eliminate that waste by allowing consumers to vacuum seal foods to make them last up to five times longer. The FoodSaver website claims to help home chefs save up to $2,700 annually. Concerned about plastic waste, too? The newest model uses 40% less bag material than previous versions.
