Chronic Illness Kitchen Tools I Use Every Day

People with chronic illnesses face many challenges, and one of them is cooking. Cooking can be difficult because it can be hard to stand for long periods, and often people with chronic illnesses also have limited mobility due to pain or fatigue. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make great food! I’ve compiled a list of kitchen tools that make cooking easier for people with chronic illnesses.

Electric Kettle

Electric kettles are faster and more efficient than traditional ones. You can get a good electric kettle at any store for around $30, saving you so much time in the long run. I used to boil water on my stovetop, which took forever. Now I just fill my kettle with water and push a button; it heats up in minutes! Electric kettles are safer than traditional ones. They’re built with safety mechanisms that make them less likely to burn your hand or start a fire if left unattended for any period (which happens). No more worrying about whether your stovetop is still on after your brain fog kicks in.

Electric kettles are cheaper than traditional ones. They use less energy than their stovetop counterparts. So even though they cost more initially, they’ll save you money over time by using less electricity each month (which is especially true as time goes on).

  • Brings water to a boil within minutes
  • LED light signals when the kettle is working
  • 1.8L water capacity
  • Non-toxic, high-quality materials
  • More energy efficient than stove-top

Rice Cooker

You’re probably thinking, “Oh yeah, I know what a rice cooker is.” But do you? Do you? Most people are so accustomed to restaurant and takeout rice’s terrible taste and texture that they don’t recognize true perfection when cooking this staple grain. When I say “true perfection,” I mean perfectly fluffy, perfectly separated grains that are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside—the kind of rice you’d find at upscale Japanese restaurants or if someone made it for themselves as soon as they got home from work with their favorite recipe on hand.

If this sounds like something worth investing in (and I assure you it is), consider looking into an electric model. Electric models have several advantages over traditional stovetop cookers: They’re easier to clean; they can be left unattended because their mechanisms automatically switch between warm and cool temperatures when needed; many come with steaming baskets for cooking other foods in addition to rice, and some are even programmable, so all you have to do is press start before leaving in the morning! That being said, there are also disadvantages: Some electric models require specialized measuring cups or special measuring spoons (which may make them harder than necessary), while others tend not to keep up well with high-volume cooking needs such as multiple servings per mealtime (which could lead one back toward traditional methods).

Automatic Chopper

An automatic chopper is a must-have for anyone with chronic pain or arthritis. I love my automatic dicer and chopper. You can use it to chop up vegetables, slice fruit and make soups or smoothies in no time! I also find it useful if your hands are shaky or if you have arthritis. It’s an essential tool for anyone who lives with chronic illness but doesn’t want to give up their favorite foods.

  • Collecting Container
  • Fine Dicer Blade
  • Medium Dicer Blade
  • Spiralizing Julienne Blade
  • Spiralizing Ribbon Blade
  • 2x Cleaning Brushes

Immersion blender

An immersion blender is a perfect tool for making smoothies and soups. It’s lightweight and easy to store, making it a great option for anyone who can’t lift heavy objects. I have one of these in my kitchen, and I use it almost daily! An immersion blender also comes in handy when you need to blend something without washing another big appliance afterward. My favorite part about using an immersion blender is that I don’t have to clean up after myself!

  • Milk Frother
  • Egg Whisk

Air fryer

An air fryer is a kitchen appliance that uses hot air to fry food, much like an oven or convection oven. It’s different from a convection oven because the heat source is not exposed—it’s hidden inside of the machine. The most common type of air fryer has a basket that rotates around in front of the heating element and circulates hot air around it. What makes this so great for people with chronic illnesses?

For starters, air frying doesn’t use oil. That means you can enjoy your favorite fried foods without suffering some negative side effects associated with consuming too much-saturated fat or trans fat (like gall bladder disease). It also means that if you have trouble digesting greasy food (like me), then an air fryer will be perfect for cooking up your favorite fried treats without upsetting your stomach!

I love using my Instant Vortex Pro Air Fryer because it cooks things quickly without heating my entire kitchen like my conventional oven does when I’m trying to cook during cold weather when we’re experiencing extreme wind chills outside! Plus, I always feel guilty leaving dishes out on countertops because they tend not to get as clean as they would if there were no crumbs around them at all times…But having one less dish always makes me happy 🙂

  • Include a non-stick drip pan and 2 perforated cooking trays
  • Stainless-steel rotisserie basket
  • Rotisserie spit and forks
  • Lift tool

Electric Can Opener

I don’t know what I did before I had a good electric can opener. It is amazing how much easier it makes open cans, and you also don’t have to deal with sharp edges or the lid falling into your food again. It is also much easier to clean up than a manual one because no blade is involved! My favorite electric can opener is from One Touch because it has a magnet on the side of it to hold onto your lid after you take off the top so that it doesn’t fall into your food. This stops me from having to fish them out later!

Our electric can opener is specially designed for the elderly, arthritic patients, and the disabled and disadvantaged, and is a gift for relatives and friends, housewives, and the elderly. Our mission is to empower everyone, especially those with hand problems, to have a more effortless, can-opening experience, simplifying their lives.

  • Electric kitchen appliances can make cooking easier for people with chronic illnesses.

  • Another benefit is that they’re often safer than traditional kitchen tools—which is important if you have any mobility issues or limited strength in your hands.

We believe electric kitchen appliances are a must-have for people with chronic illnesses. With the right equipment at your disposal, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to prepare healthy meals each night!
