While some people see cooking dinner as a relaxing and enjoyable way to signal the end of the workday, I personally have always found it to be quite the opposite. From endless peeling and chopping veggies to putting away and cleaning up when I’m done, I find the whole cooking process maddening and time consuming.

But in an effort to make sure I avoid takeout – and continue my quest to cook healthy meals – I bought this top-selling 4-in-1 vegetable chopper a few weeks ago. It really changed my life, and I’ve since become obsessed with finding other gadgets, tools, and accessories that reviewers say have made cooking so much easier. Here are a few that interest me.
