Good kitchen equipment is the difference between a pleasurable cooking experience and a frustrating one. Every kitchen tool on this page I consider to be the best of the best, products I've used for years that have been performing brilliantly ever since I bought them!

Good-quality Mandolin

This Mandolin is sturdy and sharp, and feels safe to use. A good mandolin saves a ton of time in the kitchen!

Stainless Mixing Bowls

I have 12 of these mixing bowls – they’re that great to have around! No-slip bottom and high-quality steel.

Glass Storage Containers

I store my leftovers in these containers. The base is glass so it doesn’t absorb odors like other storage.

Steel Turner

Perfect 5-star rating on Amazon for a reason! This turner is super sturdy and thin to get under food.

5-in-1 Griddler

I use this a ton for making large amounts of pancakes, for grilling, pressing sandwiches, and more!

Nesting Bowls

Essential for mise en place, and great to use for a double boiler or melting chocolate in the microwave.

Dusting Wand

Use to perfectly dust your bread or baked goods with flour, cocoa powder, confectioner’s sugar, etc

Pro Stand Mixer

This professional series mixer is worth the splurge over the artisan model. Much more power!

Non-porous Board

This board doesn’t absorb anything like wood cutting boards do, plus it’s dishwasher safe!

Microplane Zester

The best zester and grater I’ve ever used. Great for citrus, garlic, cheese, chocolate, etc.

Cast-Iron Skillet

Whenever I need a good sear and golden crust, I use my cast-iron skillet, especially for steaks!

Copper Core Cookware

The best of both cookware worlds, you get even heat from the copper core, but no polishing required.


I have tried and used quite a few spatulas in my cooking years, and these are my favorite.

Favorite Blender

This blender is a BEAST! It’s super powerful and clean-up is really easy. Favorite blender I’ve ever owned.

Garlic Press

Peeling and mincing garlic can be such a chore! With this just throw the whole clove in and squeeze.

Nesting Beakers

These nesting beakers are SO BRILLIANT! Great for measuring small amounts of liquid accurately.

Non-stick Baking Mat

SO much better than using parchment paper. I always use these mats to line my baking sheets.

POP Storage Container

I LOVE these containers, and use them to store my different types of flour, oats, sugar, etc.

Square Baking Dish

High-quality ceramic bakeware that’s beautiful too. I bake both sweet and savory recipes in this dish.

Sheet Pan with Lid

My favorite sturdy sheet pan for baking…with a lid! The lids are so handy for storage and stacking.

Kitchen Scale

I use this every day! Take your baking to the next level with precise weights instead of measurements.

Serrated Knife

This knife cuts like a dream. Great for cutting bread, tomatoes, citrus, and other thick-skinned foods.

Cookie Scoop

I use these for much more than cookies! You can portion out meatballs, drop biscuits, muffins, etc.

The Best Tongs

Good tongs make ALL the difference when you’re cooking. After 10 years these still work perfectly!
