Mix it up with these mixing gadgets from Edmonton stores

Minimize your kitchen prep time when you’re rustling up a healthy meal, whether it’s for yourself or a small army. These stores sell the powerful pulverisers that are the best at pureeing, dicing, slicing and juicing without sacrificing too much counter space.

Hillaby's Tools For Cooks

101 Riel Dr, St Albert, AB T8N 1N1

This store sells some awesome mixers, including the Breville handy stand mixer, which is a fraction of the price of other fancy standing mixers but still works nicely. Its compact design means it doesn’t take up your whole countertop – it’s like a hand mixer and standing mixer had a cute little baby. You can detach the mixer and move it around but you still have the stability of a standing mixer, if you want it. It has 12 speeds and two independent motors – one for moving the beaters, one for rotating the beaters.

Zenari’s believes you should never wait for fresh juice again. The electric citrus squeezer by Alessi, designed by Stefano Giovannoni, is made almost completely from stainless steel, giving it a sleek, classic look. It will pulverize oranges, grapefruits and other citruses in a flash, giving you the perfect, healthy start to your morning. Fresh squeezed juice with no added sugar is so much better for you than store bought juice. Minimum effort, maximum freshness – such a win!

Williams-Sonoma Inc

123A-6455 MacLeod Trail SW, Calgary, AB T2H 0K8

While Williams-Sonoma sells a variety of food processors, the Cuisinart 8-Cup food processor is my top pick. They make this food processor in a variety of sizes. I think the eight-cup processor is the best size and value. It’s big enough to mash up nuts when you’re baking and strong enough to puree veggies into a healthy soup for lunch but small enough that it doesn’t take up your entire kitchen island. It’s got three speeds and stainless steel blades for effortless chopping, dicing and slicing – a food prep win!

They sell big juicers for people who take their juicing seriously. The Omega vertical masticating HD juicer will cost you a pretty penny (almost $600) but it will get the job done. If you want to add juicing into your culinary routine in the New Year, you’ll want to do it with ease. This juicer dominates – but at a low speed, to keep from destroying the healthy enzymes in your veggies. The machine itself is compact and has an auto-cleaning function, keeping cleanup to a minimum. It’s also built to withstand heavy juicing, like wheatgrass.

Whether you’re shopping for a wee babe or yourself, is there anything cozier than a onesie?

These stores sell the most adorable onesies on the market. [Image credit: iStock.com/martinedoucet]
Kombucha tea, a slightly bubbly fermented drink made with a green or black tea base, is a sweet but healthy alternative to pop. Makers claim it can aid in digestive health, plus it just tastes fantastic. Often made from organic, raw ingredients, kombucha teas have exploded in popularity in the past decade. These Edmonton shops carry a variety of brands, including some Canuck favourites.
Linens may seem like a boring thing to purchase, but, if you search the right shops, you can find the most plush, decadent bath towels and pretty kitchen linens you’ll ever see.
