Fibromyalgia Action UK


I was just in my kitchen making cauliflour cheese for my daughter for her dinner tonight tho of course I will not be partaking I think my gallstones were jumping about just at the smell of it lol,

Anyway I was just wondering what gadgets everyone uses to help them out in their daily lifes? whether that is to help in the kitchen or bathroomor for anything. I thought if we all said what we use it might help others who havent thought about it what do you think.?

sorry if this has been done before x

I will start

I bought a plastic steamer of ebay for £5 and its great no heavy pans of water when cooking veg or rice or pasta helps me so much

big soft hugs to you all xxxx

Its probably kleenezze ,I've seen them in there

I bought a travel kettle to use instead of th regular kitchen kettles as its lighter andi use an electric can opener , a plastic jar priser that just makes the lid pop, and also a different type for cans and tins that have ring pulls all can be bought from most kitchen utensils shops or the above named catalogue

I am going to buy one of those machines that boils water like a coffee making machine as my arthritis is getting worse in my hands

hugs poppy xx


Hi all,

pasta cooker ,i had mine from ,but think kleenzze or betterware do them , i have a one cup kettle i just get a jug to fill it up ,then put cup under were water comes out ,so only have to lift my cup not the kettle .you can get kettle from argos its a brita i think .i have a ricer to do mash potato.


I use a plastic steamer for the microwave along with various plastic saucepans from Lakeland's. i couldn't manage without them as lifting empty pans is hard enough but with anything in them would be so hard. I love the clear plastic pans as you can see if anything is about to boil over too!

We have a commercial filter coffee maker that has an extra hot plate on top, but its perfect to keep coffee on all day without it getting spoilt. that way i don't have to think out lifting the kettle. Those little machines that dispense hot water are great, i just wish i had the room for one.

I bought a soup maker recently too. Its like a huge blender jug but also has a hotplate. i can have fresh soup without the need for saucepans. all gets cooked in the jug. the only bugbear is that its too heavy to clean afterwards…. but hubby makes a great washer upper'er!! lol xxx


Oooo they sound great must look into those thank you been a great help xx
