A roundup of my go-to cooking gadgets and equipment that you need for a healthy, happy kitchen!
With the holidays coming up quick, there’s going to be lots of cooking and baking going on in kitchens around the country! That’s especially true for my own house. For some reason, the holidays are my favorite ‘cooking season’. Something about the weather being colder and family being around makes cooking and sharing a delicious meal or dish all the more exciting and comforting.
Since I am already planning out my holiday menus for the next few months, I started taking stock of all the different gadgets, appliances, and equipment I use in my kitchen to cook healthy, wholesome food for my family. I’ve accumulated quite the collection over the years! But I have to admit, I don’t go overboard. I am not one of those ‘As Seen On TV‘ buyers or frivolous spenders who shill out cash on the latest food fad.
I use a wide variety of products, but each one has a job and gets used often. No dusty donut makers or air-fryers sitting around my countertops! 😉 Today I’ve gathered my favorite kitchen gear to share with you guys in hopes that you find some new things to add to your own kitchen. These also all make great gifts for the foodie, chef, or baker in your life. Think of this as a sort of kitchen gadget gift-guide for the holidays! 🙂
Tovolo Scoop n’ Spread | Perfect for getting any excess ingredients out of your bowl or pan, spreading frostings or batters, and they come in fun colors too!
T-Fal Cookware | The BEST cookware I’ve ever used. It promises non-stick cooking and it delivers! You don’t even need any oil or
Wilton Donut Pan | My go-to baking pan for donuts and other round dessert delights! Perfectly non-stick and easy to use. The baked goods pop out of the trays effortlessly!
Kitchen Aid 11-Cup Food Processor | Used more in my kitchen than my Vita-Mix if you can believe it! Perfect for pureeing, making protein ice cream, blending batters, or finely chopping veggies (like cauliflower for my cauli-crust pizzas!).
Elementi Original Premium Milk Frother | Not an essential but SO nice to have on hand for making a delicious, frothy coffee drinks. It even works well with non-dairy milks!
Hamilton Beach Panini Press | The best grilled cheese and panini maker out there. Big enough for quesadillas too! I use this weekly to make delicious pressed sandwiches. Nothing better than crispy, grilled bread and melted cheese!
Spiral Life Vegetable Spiralizer | Awesome for making zoodles and other spiralized veggie creations. Cheap and works GREAT!
OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Measuring Cups | I LOVE these measuring cups. Not only do they look great, but they are so sturdy and durable. No worries about breaking or cracking!
Nesco Dehydrator | Cheaper than it’s luxury counterparts like the Excalibur Dehydrator yet works just as well and in less time! Lots of room for multiple dried foods at once and a variety of settings to suit your raw snack needs. I love making dried fruit and veggie snacks with mine! We’ve done turkey jerky too!
OXO Silicone Steamer Basket | Awesome for steaming veggies and potatoes! Easy to clean and fits almost any pot!
Food Network Candles | Automatically fills your kitchen with authentic, irresistible scents after you’ve cooked something (like fish!) with a pungent smell! My favorite is Sunday Morning Pancakes…legit smells like fresh pancakes!
