Vitamix 750 Blender – I LOVE my Vitamix and I really don’t remember life before it…. that’s probably because I got mine back in 2011. Because of that my model is no longer available but if I were buying a new one today this is the one I’d choose!
Crockpot – I wanted THIS crockpot for a long time. I absolutely love the look of it, the way it cooks, the 24 hour programmable timer and cord storage.
All Clad Stainless Steel 12 inch Skillet – Good cookware is EVERYTHING and yes, it is also an investment. BUT when you invest in good cookware not only should it last your entire lifetime but also then be able to be passed on to loved ones. Did you know that used to be a thing! Talk about heirlooms!
All Clad Stainless Steel Sauce Pan – Perfect for sauces and soups!
All-Clad Stainless Steel Saute Pan with Lid – I LOVE this thing. If you need a good pan that can double as one to roast or slow simmer this is the one you want! This is exactly the pan you want when making my One Pot Healthy Orange Chicken.
Dutch Oven – My Dutch Oven is one of my very favorite kitchen items I own! Sadly mine is a Mario Batali and he stopped producing them… why Mario, WHY??? It’s so good and while I own an 8 quart, I think that if I were to purchase one today I’d go with this one here. It’s a 6 quart which still allows for soup making, a lovely white color, reviews are good and the price is right!
Kitchen Aid Mixer – This is a smokin’ deal you guys! I remember when these babies used to be sooo spendy! This mixer is a work horse, it’s been through the ringer and works so hard for me so I don’t have to.
Cuisinart 11 cup Food Processor – You can use this for soooo much but my #1 made item in here is my pesto! (My egg free pie crust is second though!) It just doesn’t come out anywhere as good in the blender so this processor is a must for large batches I can freeze.
Cuisinart Compact 4-slice Toaster – Perfect for days you need only 2 slices and others when you need 4. (Follow the link for a 2-slice toaster also!)
Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender – The reason I love this so much is not only because it makes blending sauces and soups a breeze but the chopping attachment is like having a mini food processor and is such a great deal! I use the attachments as much as the Hand Blender itself!
Inspiralizer – This is not just any spiralizer guys, I know I’ve tried others, this thing is amazing and will totally get you spiralizing your veggies!
French Press Coffee Maker – I love the aesthetic of this french press. I was looking for a non-glass option and this one is perfect!
Springform Pie Pan – This 9 inch pan is perfect for any pie or cake you want to carefully remove from the pan!
Bistro Basting Brush & Airtight Jar – Available in both white and black this silicone basting brush is a MUST for every kitchen! I used it to oil my Stuffed Acorn Squash and you can also use it for egg washing baked goods, basting sauces on grilled meat or really anything else you’d like!
Stasher Reuseable Silicone Food Bag – With three different sizes and color options these bags will virtually eliminate your need for plastic wrap!
OASIS Premium Straight Glass Reusable Straws – The perfect smoothie straw!
Electric Milk Frother – Perfect for travel although I use it every morning to froth my coffee!
Nut Milk Bag – Makes nut milk making a breeze!
