Vitamix

I never thought I could love a blender as much as I love my Vitamix. It's a serious powerhouse and can handle anything you throw at it, literally. This is a staple in my kitchen.

Kitchenaid Mixer

My Kitchenaid mixer is the statement piece of my kitchen. It’s essential not just for the awesome job it does with pizza dough, mashed potatoes, bread, cookies, cakes and more- but it also looks cool.

3 Speed Hand Blender

This is the perfect solution to chopping onions or vegetables and I use it constantly. I LOVE how easy it is to use, and to clean.

Food Processor

Next to the Vitamix, this is the most used item in my kitchen. Use it to chop up nuts, make pestos, soups, etc.

Cutting Boards

I have a bunch of cutting boards in my kitchen. Some are basic, some are boring, some are pretty with chevron patterns, but they all basically do the same job. Get one. Or 5 like me.

Cookie Scooper

Gone are the days I use a spoon to measure out cookies. I love to use this cookie scooper to properly measure each yummy cookie-to-be.

Avocado Tool

This avocado tool is a great one if you’re looking for an all purpose tool. Split, pit and slice. And then eat.

Measuring Cups

These are great for liquid measurements. I recommend getting a few of these.

Collapsible Measuring Cups

These are great for dry measurements. I love these because they are super easy to store because they take up very little space. I hang them on little hooks in my cabinets.

Measuring Spoons

You gotta have a set (or 3) of measuring spoons! They are an essential part of cooking and baking.

Buy now

Knives

It’s crucial that you prep and prepare food with a good sharp knife set. Just be careful!

Buy now

Wok

I make a lot of Asian meals, and a wok is so great for stir fries because the heat is distributed evenly. It also holds a lot of food and perfect when I’m making food for a crowd.

Apple Corer Peeler Slicer

My mom had this when I was a kid and I thought it was the coolest thing. I remember her making apple pies and this little contraption made it so much easier to core, peel and slice the apples. And if you have a Kitchenaid mixer, you can also get one that attaches right to the mixer. Cool!

Mandolin Slicer

This piece of equipment is key for peeling potatoes or zucchini and that’s primarily what I use it for.

Buy now

Peeler

I use this peeler to peel ginger, potatoes, mangoes, you name it.

Slow Cooker

I couldn’t live without my slow cooker. If you are lazy with dinner like I sometimes am, this is a winner.

Buy now

Rice Cooker

If you can add rice, add water, and press a button you can use a rice cooker.

Buy now

Lemon/Lime Zester

Not only do I use this to zest a lemon or lime. I also use it to mince garlic; works like a charm! It’s one of my most used tools.

Buy now

Lemon Squeezer

This is another necessity in my kitchen, since many of my recipes call for lemon or lime juice.

Buy now

Kitchen Scissors

When cutting certain herbs like chives, kitchen scissors are a necessity. Some of them even have jar openers or nut crackers.

Buy now

Instant Pot

The Instant Pot is amazing for when you don't feel like putting much effort into cooking. It's so easy to use and can replace your rice cooker and slow cooker. Get one!

Buy now

Veggie Spiralizer

I really love this spiralizer attachment, which fits right onto the end of my mixer. It will also core, peel and slice your apples and it’s just a blast to use.
