There’s no better time to upgrade your in-house culinary experience. Let lose the chef in you during this lockdown with these must-have gadgets. By Vaibhav Sharma
Itching to try your hand at sous vide cooking? Here’s a great tool to ensure your first attempt is good enough for a special occasion: the Anova 2.0 1000W Sous Vide Precision Cooker. It’ll clamp onto any pot, and with Wi-Fi and app control, even an amateur chef can whip up something all the guests will love. INR 14,049.
It’s expensive. It toasts just one slice at a time. Why would you want one then? Because it makes the perfect toast. And it does so by letting you adjust the thickness of the bread slice as well as its texture. INR 28,007.
Ever come back from grocery shopping and realize you forgot an essential ingredient? The FridgeCam will prevent that from happening again. This little cloud gadget takes a photo when you close your fridge door and sends it to your smartphone, thereby letting you check— while shopping—what you need. INR 5,009.
This Nespresso capsule machine uses a pump style system that brews unburnt coffee (unlike machines that use steam pressure), while the touch display ensures effortless cups—choose among ristretto, espresso, cappuccino, lungo, and latte. INR 55,000.
This 14-bottle wine chiller makes sure you’ve always got a glass of wine to go with your meal. The tempered glass door and child lock guarantee safety, while adjustable wooden shelves make it practical and add pizzazz to the design. INR 19,990.
