If you are going to cook a vegetarian meal then you are going to have to slice a ton of vegetables. This gets it done so easily. You can also cut things like tomatoes and cucumbers super thin. It makes making a salad really easy or chopping that carrot for your soup consistent and really fast. It also has a julienne option. I use this to make shoe string French fries and hash browns.

3. Vitamix 5200 Series Blender, Black

Why? Because every one of every diet preference needs a good blender. You may not even know it yet. Vitamix is expensive, but it has a few features that rank it over other blender options in my opinion. First is the lid. It installs and removes quickly. It also has an option of using a stirring wand (included with purchase) for blending extra thick concoctions like smoothies or sinful milkshakes. In addition, it has a powerful motor that blends the crap out of things. A knob controls the motor so you can turn it up and down really easily. Lastly, it’s easy to clean. The pitcher portion is only three parts so you can place it in the dishwasher easily or you can blend water and soap in it for a few minutes which I believe is Vitamix’s recommended cleaning method.
