Here at One Green Planet, we love kitchen tools that can serve more than one purpose. Avocado slicer? Too one dimensional. Cast iron skillets that can make brownies, giant cookies, cornbread, cakes, and awesome curries? Oh, yes. Sometimes, you learn that there are new uses for gadgets that you would never have expected. For example, did you know that you can make pickles in your coffeemaker? Oh yes, it’s true!

The video above by POPSUGAR Food, Nicole Iizuka shows us how drip coffeemakers can be used for more than just our morning brew. Of course, first, make sure that your coffeemaker is clean. A good wash with hot water, soap, and vinegar will get the job done. Just gather your spices, put them in the coffee pot, add water, and let it brew. After that, add your vegetables and let sit for two hours. Be sure to store your homemade pickles in an airtight container, like a mason jar, in your refrigerator.

Need pickled veggie suggestions? We recommend trying these Pickled Jalapeños, these Pickled Radishes, and these Polish Pickles. For even more ideas, check out our pickled vegetable recipes page.

So, Green Monsters, what do you think of this kitchen hack? Is it something you would try with your coffeemaker? Or, if you’ve tried it, how did it turn out? Share your experience with us in the comments below!

We also highly recommend downloading our Food Monster App, which is available for both Android and iPhone, and can also be found on Instagram and Facebook. The app has more than 8,000 plant-based, allergy-friendly recipes, and subscribers gain access to ten new recipes per day. Check it out!

I've made pickles with straight apple cider vinegar. No way would I want to use any amount of water at all.
