I do my best to be a responsible consumer. I like to buy high-quality products that won’t end up in a landfill after a year or two. That is why I choose to invest in kitchen tools. This is a list of kitchen products that I actually own and use regularly. Some of these items are much more expensive than other items in their category, but they are worth it. If you have any questions about a product on this page, feel free to message me!



Kitchen Aid Mixer

A good stand mixer is essential for an avid baker. I use my mixer for cookies, cakes, whipped cream and more. I bought this bright orange one because it reminded me of Garfield.



I appreciate the simplicity of my Bodum French Press. It makes excellent coffee and it doesn’t waste paper. I also use it to brew loose-leaf tea.


Lefse Grill

This grill is designed for making Scandinavian potato pancakes, but I use it for crêpes, latkes and okonomiyaki. It is easy to clean and easy to store because it is so flat!


Microplane Box Grater

I was fortunate enough to receive a Microplane box grater as a sample from the company. Microplane is known for their quality graters. This one is super sturdy and well constructed. It has a panel you can remove to use as a flat grater. I love it!


USA Pans

I’m the type of nerd that asks for baking sheets for Christmas. My mom bought me a set of these and they are excellent. They are heavy duty and they make me feel like a professional.



These silicon cooking mats keep things from sticking. Think of them as reusable parchment paper. You can find them in a range of sizes. They are made in France so you know they are fancy.


Prepara Evak

This thing is so cool. When you push the handle down, it pushes air out. This helps keep your food fresh. I like to use it for my whole bean coffee. It comes in white or black.


Shun Knife

Every kitchen needs a good chef’s knife. Your knife is your kitchen work-horse, so it has to feel good in your hand. This Shun knife is nicely weighted with a beautiful design.


Le Creuset

Another fancy French product? Quelle Surprise! This enamelled, cast-iron pan is great for making stews, beans, soups and breads. They come in a dizzying selection of colors.


Vitamix Blender

This list wouldn’t be complete without the love of my life…my Vitamix. I use it 2 or 3 times a day. I don’t know how I lived without it! Seriously? How did I live?
