If you’re anything like me then you’re a sucker for kitchen gadgets. And if you’re anything like me then you also have a drawer full of kitchen gadgets that never get used. But that’s a post for another day! Today I want to talk about my top 10, tried and true, kitchen favorites! These are items that I use on the DAILY.
My Top 10 Kitchen Favorites
I use my cast iron pans daily. While I haven’t mastered eggs or pancakes in them yet, I use them for all things lunch and dinner. It’s also great for reheating leftovers. I have both the 6.5″ and 12″ skillet.
If you have a cast iron pan then you need this cast iron pan scraper! Even if your pan is well seasoned, food will sometimes stick to it. And since you can’t use soap on cast iron, this scraper works wonders at getting all the grime off.
Whiles its not the healthiest kitchen cookware to cook on, this griddle is the BOSS when it comes to making pancake or eggs.
My Nutribullet runs probably 3-4x day. Between Justin and I making smoothies, blending soups, and mixing up my spinach pancakes, this thing runs non-stop! My last Nutribullet lasted me YEARS…maybe 8 or 10. So they are definitely durable!
I love kitchen items that have more than one use, like these oversized measuring cups. I make sauces, dressings, pancakes, and basically every kind of batter in these bad boys!
6. Metal Straws
I fell in love with these straws the moment I found them. They come in a straight or bent variety and two different sizes. The big ones are perfect for smoothies and the bent ones are awesome for when I’m running around the house with Miles in my arms and don’t have a free hand to drink my water.
7. Baking Paper & Bees Wrap
If you are looking to reduce your kitchen waste or a healthier option then this baking paper and beeswax wraps are exactly what you’re looking for. The baking paper is great for lining cookie trays, brownie pans, and bread tins so you don’t have to grease the pan. And the bees wax paper replaces the need for plastic cling wrap.
This is another item that serves more than one purpose. Not only does it cut out one more plastic in your life, but I like to serve sides, like green beans or carrots, in the glass tupperware. So after dinner you just snap on the lid and put in the fridge. Zero clean up!
9. Green Bags
If you’re buying local or organic produce then you know the pain when you open your fridge to see that the produce you’ve bought has gone wilty or has mold. These green bags have been a life saver for my produce! They easily extend their life by another week.
10. Stasher Bags
Like the bee’s wax paper, these lunch skins are reusable. I use them for trail mix, fruit, crackers, sandwiches, you name it! They are super easy to clean and come in a bunch of different sizes.
