Optional but handy

Slow Cooker

Slow cookers are so handy to have in the kitchen when it comes to meal prep. Not only does it do the cooking for you, you can easily double up on the ingredients to make enough batches of food to sort the lunches and dinners for the whole family. They are very affordable, easy to clean and you can program them to cook on high or low for however long you need without having to be at home to tend to it.

Food Processor

A food processor is so useful to cut down prep time when batch cooking. When you are doubling or even tripling up on ingredients in recipes, you are going to have a lot more vegetables to prepare. All you have to do is pop the veggies into the food processor, and using the pulse button you can chop them down to the desired consistency.

Big pot for batch cooking

Having a big pot in your kitchen is super handy when you want to batch cook. Not only does it mean there will be less to wash up at the end, it also frees you from having to switch between a load of different pots and pans while you’re cooking.
