Chef’s Knife

*Top Pick* The best way to pick out a quality knife is to hold it in your hand. The next best way is to get a recommendation from someone who has. A chef's knife will be one of the most-used items in your kitchen. This chef's knife is forged from high carbon stainless steel to maintain sharpness throughout its life.

Cast Iron Skillet

*Top Pick* A cast-iron skillet is one of my favorite items in the kitchen. A good cast-iron skillet will last for generations! This skillet comes pre-seasoned and ready to use. It's also induction-friendly. Choose the size which works for your family.

Digital Probe Food Thermometer (Meat Thermometer)

*Top Pick* To perfectly cook meat, every cook and grill master needs a digital thermometer! This digital thermometer features two separate heat-resistant probes. Leave the probe in the meat inside the grill or oven and watch the temperature rise on the digital readout outside on the counter. This thermometer also has a temperature alarm to set to the perfect temperature so you can enjoy perfectly cooked meat every time.

Silicone Spatula Set

This set of silicone spatulas is heat resistant up to 500 degrees. I use these for everything in the kitchen, from mixing ingredients to scraping bowls. They’re safe for use on non-stick coating because they won’t scratch the surface.

Paring Knife

*Top Pick* This 3.5-inch Wusthof brand paring knife is forged from a single piece of high carbon stainless steel. It's well-balance and maintains its sharp edge for many years.

Immersion Blender

For creamy soups requiring blending, an immersion blender is a necessity. The alternative is to blend soup in batches in an upright blender, but this can be very dangerous when handling hot liquid. This immersion blender also comes with a milk frother attachment so you don’t need a separate gadget to make a latte in the morning. It also has a whisk attachment if you don’t have a hand mixer.

Grill Basket

*Top Pick* Grill baskets are the easiest way to cook vegetables on the grill, which gives them fantastic flavor. This large basket holds plenty of vegetables and is made of stainless steel. If you love to grill, you need at least one of these!

Rolling Pin

You'll need a rolling pin for rolling out homemade pie crust or Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls. Choose the classic version with handles that allow for easy rolling, or a French rolling pin for more controlled movement.

Bread Loaf Pan

This glass bread loaf pan is perfect for homemade sourdough or your seasonal pumpkin bread. This glass option is dishwasher safe and you don't have to worry about a non-stick coating chipping off into your food. Always grease and flour the pan before baking for best results.

Vegetable Spiralizer

A vegetable spiralizer turns ordinary vegetables into noodle-like shapes. Although nothing can replace pasta, this texture is a fun change to help your family eat more vegetables! This hand-held option is small and inexpensive, so not much storage space needed. Because you must turn the vegetables by hand, it’s best for those who just want to make veggie “noodles” once in a while; if you’re a more serious veggie spiralizer, you might check out an option with a hand crank instead.

Instant Pot Pro Crisp: Air Fryer, Electric Pressure Cooker, Slow-Cooker, and More

If you're looking for a true all-in-one device, this Instant Pot Pro Crisp is a great option. This is a combo Air Fryer, Electric Pressure cooker, and Slow-Cooker. It has options to sauté, sous vide, keep food warm. It also works as a mini oven, broiler, and dehydrator. It's pricey, but may be worth it instead of purchasing each of these items individually.

Food Processor and Blender Combo

Unlike other clunky food processors and blenders, this combo device takes up much less space. It's not as powerful as a Vitamix, but it's much less expensive and gets the job done! If you only use a food processor or blender occasionally, this is a great option.
