1. A slow cooker for chilli con/non carne

Own a slow cooker? It's time to dig it out of your cupboard and give it a clean. We love using this handy appliance to make a hearty meals that don't require you standing and stirring for half an hour. 

Our fave? A delicious chilli con carne – for vegetarians or vegans, that's a chilli non carne. All you need to do is prepare a few hours beforehand and leave in the slow cooker to work its magic. We've popped three of our favourite recipes below, one for meat eaters, one for veggies and another for plant-powered vegans.

2. An air fryer for chicken wings... or tofu bites!

Finger food always goes down a treat, and let's face it: it's less washing for you to do, as long as you remember to buy napkins. 

While you can't really go wrong with chicken wings, give the vegans an option with our baked tofu bites recipe below. And for your benefit, you could pop them in an air fryer to save effort (and calories). Serve both with a tasty sauce and you're laughing. 

Other things to make in an air fryer: calamari, chips, chicken nuggets and more.

A sliiiiightly lazier option, but no one we know hates popcorn, so it's a safe bet. Plus, you can spice things up by making several different batches – sweet, salt, toffee, butter, truffle, chilli, caramel – the options are endless.
