A good food processor saves tons of time cooking dinner. More time for fresh salsa, courtesy of this food processor!
A good quality set of mixing bowls is so useful. While it might not seem like a ‘fun’ purchase, having a set that can stack, has lids, and has non-slip bottoms will come in handy. Plus, they’re a great deal!
I was a bit hesitant before I bought my Instant Pot, but now I cannot imagine my life without it. It makes perfectly cooked rice, beans… and even a pork roast. My boyfriend did not believe the pork, and then he tried and was amazed. Thank you, IP!
This ceramic bakeware can be frozen, microwaved, dish washed, and of course, baked. Not only does it come with cute glass lids, but also tighter lids for transportation or fridge/freezer storage.
Electric wine bottle opener… you just need this. If you want a full wine-related list, see our Wine Must-Haves!
An air fryer can help make fries and roasted veggies crispy, without using excess oil! They are also excellent to make burgers, or even dry herbs in!
Yup, that’s a strainer that attaches directly to your pot.
Throw garlic (or a small onion) in this small cast iron roaster and toss it in the oven or on the grill!
KitchenAid® Blade Coffee Grinder
Update your coffee grinder so that you can enjoy the best cup of coffee.
This tempered glass batter bowl includes measurements, and is also microwave, dish washer, etc. safe!
If you haven’t upgraded your food storage to Rubbermaid Brilliance containers, you need to. My food stays so much more fresh in these, they don’t get melty in the microwave, they freeze well, and best of all: they are not stained red after containing a tomato product.
If you’re missing the space in your oven to bake (or dehydrate in your oven) everything that you want at one time, this tiered baking rack will solve that problem. It comes with three baking sheets, and doubles as a cooling rack! (Honestly, it’s worth it to save counter space just to cool things.)
KitchenAid® Artisan® Series 5 Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
This KitchenAid Mixer comes in every color that you could want, I have it in white! If you want the option to put it on a 0% interest payment plan, click here.
This oven crisper turns your oven into an air fryer. By allowing the air to flow, it crisps better than a standard cookie sheet.
If you’re breaking up your cooking ground meat with anything other than this, you’re wasting your time. It also works amazingly on potatoes!
If you’re someone who likes the corners of brownies, you’re welcome. This is inexpensive, and can work to make square muffins, or even cookies!
My latest task has been dehydrating all of the fruit that I buy before it goes bad. I wrote an article on how to dehydrate fruit with an oven or a dehydrator, the process is super easy. However, if you are an avid dehydrator, it can be useful to purchase one rather than use your oven.
This contraption has saved me an insane amount of time when prepping food. It chops food, slices, juliennes, spiralizes zoodles, etc. I have used the mandolin for making homemade pickles (and most recently dehydrating fruit), hash browns, potato chips, noodles out of zucchini.
And it’s cheap.
