Kitchen Tools (Must Haves)

Here are the items I cannot live without in my kitchen! I use all of these on a daily/weekly basis!

8-Cup Glass Batter Bowl. I use this batter bowl 2,743 times a day…no joke. I love that it’s microwave and dishwasher safe so it’s great for one-bowl recipes where melting ingredients is required. I mix up so many recipes in this I often wish I had a second one! I also LOVE that it has a lid!

Vitamix!!!! If I haven’t convinced you how much you need a Vitamix I have failed you! If you have any questions about which blender is best for you please shoot me an e-mail! I have blended with my fair share of their models and and would love to help you!

French PressTo me, there is no other way to make a fabulous cup of coffee than with a French Press. I have had this for years and will never make coffee any other way!

Electric kettle.  I use mine to boil water to make coffee every morning (in the above French Press). I also use it if I need to boil water on the stove in a hurry {like when I make a box of mac and cheese for my kids or cook pasta}! It cuts the boiling time in half!

Ice Cream Maker. This is one of those items that I couldn’t live without!. Absolutely nothing beats homemade ice cream. It’s fresh and fully customizable {i.e. you can put as many peanut butter or cookie dough chunks in it as you wish}!  You will save so much money in the long run making your own dairy-free ice cream at home!

Food processor. I have used my for so many things over the years I can’t even tell you how useful it is in the kitchen. Need to shred 5 lbs of cheese? No problem! Dice a boatload of veggies? Easy peasy. It’s the only way I will make pie crusts because it’s so so easy!

Marble Rolling Pin. I have had this marble rolling pin for 10 years and use it all the time to make homemade pizzas, pie crusts, cinnamon rolls, etc. etc.!

Kitchen Aid Mixer.  I couldn’t imagine baking cookies, whipping cream, etc. without one of these beauties!

Wooden Spoons. These spoons are gorgeous and so versatile!

Spatula. Every kitchen needs a great spatula! I have this one and use it for everything!

Measuring Spoons! Our oldest has been helping in the kitchen a little more lately, and some of my measuring spoons have had the measurement wear off. Since she doesn’t know the difference between 1 tsp and 1 TBS, we realized we need to  buy measuring utensils that have the measurement etched into the metal to avoid this problem! I also love these because each spoon is a solid piece of metal, so it is next to impossible to break them!  Buy on Amazon: Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons

Oven Mitts! No burns here!

Thermapen! I use this every time I cook meat or make candy!
