Cooking healthy dishes is not always easy. It takes time and prior preparation. However, investing in the right appliances will make things less hectic. This article explores 7 essential kitchen appliances that make cooking healthier meals easier.       
1.   Steamer
Most common cooking methods such as frying, grilling and sautéing use excessive fat during preparation. A lot of fat in your food is unhealthy. Steaming on the other hand is a healthier food preparation method. A good steamer helps you prepare food without oil while retaining the vital nutrients of your ingredients. You can cook a variety of food such as seafood and vegetables. It is also faster hence lowers cooking time. Most modern steamers have programmable controls which allows you to set the cooking time. You can choose from less convection steamers, pressure steamers or combination- oven steamers.
2.   Oil and vinegar misters
Oil and vinegar misters enables you to use oil and vinegar sparingly. Some oils such canola and olive oils have nutritious fatty acids when used in the right portions. An oil mister allows you to lightly spray your food while cooking, grilling and greasing pans. This prevents the food from sticking to the pan during preparation. You may add herbs and spices to the oil to add flavor to your food. Oil misters are easy to use and can also be used to manage the use of vinegar as well. Pick oil misters that are BPA free.
3.   Herb saver
Herbs are a healthy way of adding flavor to our dishes. A herb saver is a clear plastic container that preserves herbs for up to 3 weeks. The stems of the herbs are slightly submerged in water and kept in the fridge. You can use it to preserve herbs such as rosemary, thyme, asparagus and others. They stay fresh and retain their flavor and texture. Ensure you choose an herb saver that is dishwasher safe. It should also be airtight so that it does not absorb fridge odors.
4.   Avocado saver
Avocado is one of the most nutritious fruits. It has healthy fats that improves the heart and prevent breast cancer. However, it browns easily once it is cut. To prevent this, an avocado saver is used to reduce the exposure of the avocado to the air hence keeping it fresh and preventing browning. Ensure you leave the seed of the fruit on the half that you intend to save. The avocado can stay fresh for up to 2 days.
5.   Digital food scale
A food scale is always important. It helps to measure the right portions of ingredients that you are going to use. You can also measure the amount of calories in a particular serving. A digital food scale is recommended because it can measure ingredients accurately in grams and ounces. Most food scales are easy to use and have spill proof surfaces for easy cleaning. 
6.   Spiralizer
This is one of the most inventive appliances in the kitchen. You can use it to make strands of zucchini, cucumber, potatoes, beetroots and others vegetables such that they look like pasta. It is healthy because you make delicious food without using fats and sugars as it is in most common recipes.
7.    Air fryer
An air fryer is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances. It can be used to roast, grill, bake and fry using very little oil. Consider investing in Power AirFryer XL which is a five in one air fryer. Its automatic shut-off design prevents food from overcooking and burning during preparation.
