No matter how many cooking classes you attend or recipe tutorials on Youtube you watch, sometimes, you just have to accept that the gift of cooking was not given to everyone. Good thing technology is here to the rescue. We’ve found these functional kitchen appliances if you really can’t cook to save your life — or if you’re just feeling too lazy to prepare food.
Home Zania Air Fryer
In case you haven’t heard of it yet, an air fryer is a quick cooker that essentially cooks your food through the high-speed circulation of heat within its walls. The only thing you need to do is put your frozen food inside and let the machine do all the work. It’ll cook your chicken, hotdogs, veggies, and whatever ulam you might be craving for. This air fryer from Home Zania has a 360° high-speed hot air circulation and a 4.5-liter capacity, so you can prep ulam for yourself and your loved ones without worry. Get it on Shopee.

It can hold up to 7 eggs at a time, and you can choose the level of cooking degree you want so you can choose how boiled you want your eggs to be. It’s a perfect solution for a quick breakfast or snack! Get it on Shopee.
Imarflex 6-in-1 Rice Cooker

If you’re the type of person who “doesn’t really eat breakfast” because you don’t have enough time, this breakfast sandwich maker will make you want to think twice.
