We get it: Coaxing yourself out of an endless cycle of eating out and ordering in is difficult. It’s an easy trap to fall into — you’re on your way home from work, you’re tired, and frankly, the last thing you want to do is chop veggies, throw something in a pan, or bring pasta water to a boil. As easy as it is to rely on your favorite pizza place to always be there when you need it most, it’s also an expensive fallback. Those $20 pies add up, after all.
The best way to see cooking as a fun activity as opposed to a chore is by using the right tools. Gnarly, caked-on pots and pans aren’t exactly inspiring, nor is using a blender that’s hasn’t seen the light of day for years. Reinvigorate your love of cooking with new kitchen gadgets — and JCPenney has plenty of the top brands on sale, so you can save a pretty penny, too.
