My favorite kitchen and cooking gadgets and things I generally love

I have listed some of my favorite kitchen essentials and tools that I love and think are worth the investment. These are things I use every week and most of them every day! I am an Amazon associate and may earn money on qualifying purchases, I am legally required to say that up front but I have been authentic in my curation of these products and if you are looking for them these are great options.

Favorite pans: Cast Iron, Enameled Dutch oven pans, stock pots, good non-stick pans.
Instant pot cooking! I love instant electric pressure cookers or instant pots, I got one before they were popular about 9 years ago and then I got an instant pot brand one last year, they are so nice to have and really help make meals convenient!
Air fryers! I love my air fryer and use it at least 6 days a week!

My favorite knifes! My husband got me the Cangshan knife set last year for Christmas and it is my all time favorite knife set! They feel great in your hand, if you cut a lot that is important, they are wicked sharp and they sharpen well. Also, I can honestly say I use every single knife in the block and none go unused. The bread knife is actually one of my favorites, which surprised me. Also, I found out that they are on Oprah’s favorite things list so you know they are good!

I love my kitchen aid mixer with the tilt head, it’s practical to use in everyday life. I also have the professional one and I would recommend that if you are doing large batches of breads or cakes, otherwise the tilt head is my favorite because it works better at whisking, mixing and has more power.
Spatulas! Nothing compares to a smooth rubber spatula when making meringues, frostings, and lots of other dishes! I also love a good wooden spatula and ones that just do their job really well.
My husband says this is my favorite frosting spatula and it is true, it’s the best for frosting any cake!
Wooden cutting boards, you know I love them, here are a few favorites!
I use immersion blenders all the time, making them one of my all time favorite kitchen tools!
I have had my kitchen aid blender for years! I love how high powdered it is and how long it has lasted!
My little sister lived with us for a year and she brought her ninja blender, I loved how you can remove the blade for easy cleaning and it’s a high powdered blender as an affordable price.
I keep these silicone baking liners on my baking pans at all time so I can easily bake without a huge clean up and no sticking!
I love candy making and these tools and molds are ones I use and love!

I love sushi making and this kit is the perfect beginner kit!
