Kitchen Gadgets I Love

I'm often asked what kitchen gadgets I'm using in my Instagram stories, so I put this list together to make it easier to find everything. I'll update this post as more things come to mind, but please do send a DM if there's something not on this list that you want to get.

 

I drink sparkling water daily, but don't like drinking out of an aluminum can. We use this drink fizzer for sparkling water, but I also love that we can add bubbles to apple cider or wine for special occasions and celebrations. Some sparklers can only be used for water-- not this one.

 

If you (or your kids) have a hard time swallowing vitamins, you need this pill grinder (it's actually a coffee grinder and we have a separate one for coffee). Just grind up your vitamins and add them to a smoothie or juice-- it can be used for medicine, too!

 

The KitchenAid mixer is amazing, but the attachments that come with it are very difficult to clean and always end up getting rusty and gross. We replaced them with a dishwasher safe whisk and beater. 

 

 

We make smoothies daily (and we add those ground-up supplements to them), but we also make a lot of soup. I hated blending hot soup in the plastic container that came with our Vitamix, so we got this stainless steel container. Not only is it great for soups, but it also keeps açaí from getting runny when blending with other ingredients-- we get the perfect açaī bowl every time.

 

If you drink a lot of hot tea or are a pour-over coffee enthusiast, you need an electric kettle. We have both a glass kettle and a stainless steel kettle -- because we need plenty of hot water for hosting tea parties. 

 

This vegetable shredder/cheese grater cuts down on so much of our prep time when we're cooking. It's also wonderful for kids who want to cook, but aren't ready to use a sharp knife yet.

 

 

If you keep your butter in the refrigerator and then hate waiting for it to soften before spreading it on your bread, you need a butter crock. You'll have soft, spreadable butter whenever you want it.

This spice rack has saved so much space in our cabinets (and lots of headaches, too). It helps us stay organized and makes it very easy to find what we need when we're cooking.

 

My daughter prefers to knead dough and let it rise and then knead it some more and let it rise again. I do not. LOL. With this bread machine, I have no excuses for not making bread-- it's so easy. (I will write a separate post about our bread-making adventures. If you have gluten sensitivities, you won't want to miss it).

 

This water filter gets rid of common contaminants like lead and PFAS chemicals-- things that pitcher filters do not catch. We only really drink water in our house (or coffee/tea made with water), so this was an investment but totally worth it knowing that we are drinking and cooking with clean water.

 

If you get "wheat belly" when you eat grains, you might want to try milling your own flour with this flour mill and baking your own breads/pastries/etc (I recommend the bread machine above). This has made such a huge difference in our house-- no more stomachaches and we're getting all of the nutrients that are missing in modern day wheat. 

 

We use several different types of devices to make coffee in our house, but the two we use more often are the stainless steel Bialetti  (make sure you get the stainless steel one because it's easier to clean and doesn't have harmful substances) and the Nespresso

 

 

If you like to steam and froth your milk,  you might want to get a stainless steel frother. The one that came with our Nespresso machine has a nonstick interior, which we don't like (it's also very hard to clean). This one is stainless steel and dishwasher safe.
