A slow cooker
The simplest slow cooker you can get for less than $100 will be a miracle worker in the kitchen.
Just chop veggies and meat (or buy everything precut), toss the ingredients in the cooker, and turn it on “low.” When you come home from work, dinner is served!
Whether you’re cooking for just for yourself or for a whole family, a slow cooker does the job right, with far less effort than cooking from scratch after work.
Buying the raw ingredients for a hearty soup, stew or homemade, grandma-approved pasta sauce will save you a lot of money versus buying takeout for dinner, and the meals will be much healthier, too.
