Food prep in just minutes thanks to these 13 items

Our Spring/Summer Food Awards is your guide to the best products on the market. Bloggers from our Lifestyle Collective test and review top kitchen items for the season -- and we give you the lowdown on their favorites!

Whether you love or hate cooking, the meal prep step of the process can sometimes feel like a major drag! From pulling out a cutting board, chopping a bunch of different foods individually (sometimes while crying over onions) and then having to wash all of your knives and other tools, preparing your food can take up a lot of time in the kitchen. Cut down on your cooking time with these 13 items that do the slicing and dicing for you with ease! We also included a few quality chef's knives so that you can keep up with all of your new gadgets!
