what would you do with an X extra hours each week?

we love cooking at home. it's healthier and the nightly ritual gives us a chance to recollect and connect. the problem is life gets busy and then back to Postmates we go.

Meal prep is an excellent solution, but who wants to take a third of the weekend rotating things in and out of the oven.

Investing in a few smart pieces of tech can totally transform your life. The products below cook food in less time and require less of your attention throughout the process. That. means your hands and mine are free to do literally anything else you need to.

cooking tools are an underrated resource for time management.

by mastering the art of meal prep you can literally create more time for yourself each week. spend time with people you love, finally draft that business plan.

Brava Home Smart Oven

What It Is: Natalie's favorite

Brava uses a combination of visible and infrared light to cook food faster and more efficiently than the hot air of convection ovens, or the conduction of stovetops. Unlike air or cast iron, light can be easily targeted and adjusted. This means you can create food that otherwise would have been separately sauteed, grilled, seared and baked. Our chefs create recipe programs for specific foods—and combinations of foods—to make sure they're cooked perfectly every time.

no emissions or microwaves.

Brava has six high powered lamps that get hotter than a wood fire pizza oven, eight temperature sensors, two particle detectors, and a camera (that you can watch from your phone). Like a chef using their senses, Brava uses these sensors to adjust on the fly, and to constantly improve the service. Through extensive testing, Brava chefs develop recipe programs for different dishes so each ingredient gets precisely cooked, as different lamps turn on, off, and change temperature. When you choose a setting and push the button, Brava takes over to ensure consistently delicious results. Brava cooks a complete meal with less energy than it takes to just preheat a conventional oven. Our highly-controlled infrared emitters are twice as efficient as standard nichrome or quartz heating emitters found in most home ovens and toaster ovens.
