Bar Appliances That Will Save You Time and Money


Bar Appliances That Will Save You Time and Money

We live in a time with an abundance of choices, choosing wisely often leads to saving money and time. Posing the question: “what do we really need and what is the best way to get it” puts us on the right track. In this article, we will try to shed light on the maybe less obvious tricks which focus on home and kitchen appliances. It is always smart to cut down unnecessary spendings. There are a lot of ways to do that, but for most cases, the best approach is to look at it from a long term perspective.  Here are a few ideas to get you started.


Although it is a revolutionary appliance that changed our way of life, over the years it got a bad reputation. Even though most of us own a freezer, it is often overlooked and underappreciated.  At one point in time it was popular belief that none of the frozen foods are good. The actual problem is that some groceries are better suited for keeping in the freezer than others. Some of them lose a lot of their healthy attributes immediately after being frozen. But in defense of the freezer, some food stays good and healthy even after being frozen. Benefits of having a freezer:
- You can save money by buying larger quantities of food.

- If you are growing some food or fresh herbs yourself, you can use them for longer periods of time

- If you use your freezer in a smart way you can cut down almost all food wastage

- You can get your healthy food even when it is out of season. Who wouldn’t have strawberries in December?


A freezer is great, but it has its limits, and when it comes to fresh food, the juicer is a great choice. You can always buy a glass of freshly squeezed juice, but where is the economic benefit of having a juicer? It is much healthier and cheaper than the store-bought juices but there is the relatively high price of the juicer itself? That’s where the long term perspective comes to play:

if you use your juicer regularly, it will earn back the cost in a few months. Of course, there are health benefits as well that can save you from preventable diseases and high medical bills. You can control the ingredients, dosage as well as the desired nutritive values.

Sausage Stuffers

Last but not least, the sausage stuffer. It may seem like an odd choice for this list, but it’s not only saving money and time it is a great source of fun!  Like the case is with the juicer, this stuffer allows a great deal of customization. You will no longer be stuck with store-bought options that are usually too greasy, have too many additives or just bad overall quality. By customization, we mean that you can make and tweak any recipe to your taste. Additionally to that flexibility, you will know exactly what you are eating, what are the ingredients, how old are they and where they are coming from. And by fun, we mean it is fun to experiment with different tastes and ingredients, and you can even make it a family activity because you need at least three people to efficiently make sausages. As for the recipes the world is yours! Whether you want bologna sausage, bratwurst, frankfurter or any other recipe you can make it. Here one healthy option:

Garlic Chicken Sausage


  • 500g Chicken Breast
  • 230 g Leek
  • 3-4 Cloves Of Garlic Or To Taste
  • 15 ml Of Olive Oil
  • ½ Teaspoon Of Paprika
  • Salt, White Pepper, Black Pepper and Fennel Seeds to taste

Sautée all ingredients except meat adding ingredients in the following order: oil, leek, spices, garlic and at the very end the paprika. Let it cool down. Add meat, salt and pepper to a food processor and blend into a fine texture. Mix all ingredients and make sausages. Best used fresh and boiled, but you can store or freeze them for later use.
