Since I love garlic so much but HATE chopping it because my hands will smell for days, this little tool has become one of my best friends. I use it daily and it is much easier to use and clean compared to a standard garlic press. I would strongly suggest adding this to your kitchen inventory…PLUS its less than $10!
My best thing about having a mandolin is the amount of time you will save preparing your meals. It also gives you perfect cuts that are difficult to achieve when using a regular knife. If you were to buy a mandolin, I would suggest this one since it has 5 different detachable blades. Each of them is extremely useful and I find myself using the grater inserts often since it is such a sturdy device compared to a standard grater. Get yours here!
The versatile blades that come with the Kitchen Aid Food Processor make it a great product so that you can use it for various reasons. It comes with an adjustable slicing disc, reversible shredding disc, multipurpose blade, multi-purpose Blade for 3-Cup Work Bowl, and a dough blade. It also comes with a 3 cup work bowl which makes a much easier clean up when using it to blend or mix smaller amounts of food. I’m obsessed with this product and use it weekly to make things like pesto and even to shred vegetables really quickly. There are optimized speeds and even an external lever that allows you to go from thick to thin with one slide of the lever. This product is worth the buy!
One of my favorite appliances is my beloved Kitchen Aid. This sucker is sturdy and can be used for anything baking related. One of my favorite things about my Kitchen Aid mixer is the hundreds of attachments you can purchase, whether it be a juicing attachment, a meat grinder, or a pasta roller…this baby does it all and the extra components are super easy to find.

Every cook needs a good chef’s knife, because this will be what you will be using the majority of your time in the kitchen. My favorite brand of knives are the Wusthof Pro Knives. They have a really soft rubber handle that makes it much easier to handle and is more comfortable to use compared to other high quality brands. This is also one of the more reasonably priced ‘pro’ chef’s knives. If you want to buy one click here or on the image!

This is a great tool to have in the kitchen because it’s multi-purpose. It’s also much easier to clean than my huge food processor and is great for making smaller amounts of anything! It can blend, mix, whip, puree & chop and it even comes with a bowl to do your mixing in!
