Breville Smart Oven Air

Cuisinart Food Processor

Cuisinart Food Processor

KitchenAid Stand Mixer

The workhorse of the kitchen with tons of accessories to make cooking much easier. If you ever question whether to use it; just remember that it is only two pieces to wash (bowl and attachment), which is probably less than if you did it by hand.


Instapots are all the rage right now. I don’t think there’s anything it can’t do, but I haven’t even used one yet. 🙂

Staub makes the most gorgeous enameled cast-iron cookware. As beautiful as it is sitting on your stove as an art piece, it's even better when it's in the oven cooking a slow braise and anything else you can throw at it.

Earlywood Spatulas Trifecta

The spatulas I always grab from the crock. The cast iron scraper is great for getting bits off the bottom of a cast iron skillet.

KitchenAid Pasta Extruder Attachment

As much as I love rolling out fresh pasta dough, the pasta extruder makes it even easier. Just place the dough in the extruder and it pushes through perfect noodles that are ready to cook.
