Essential Tools & Gadgets

Ninja Foodie XL

I don’t know how I ever lived without one! This is so helpful for busy weeknights. I also love using the slow cook function for when I have a crowd because I can enjoy my guests and not worry about cooking. It is super helpful that you can sear right in the pan and choose to pressure or slow cook. There is also a huge basket for air frying that makes everything super crispy just the way my kids like it!

Food Processor

I use this multiple times a week. A helpful tool when making energy bites, soups, pesto and pie dough. You can also shred vegetables such as zucchini, carrots (great when making muffins) and brussels sprouts as well as slice fruits and vegetables such as potatoes, zucchini, apples which is helpful with meal prep.


This is a splurge item, but I find it totally wroth it! I use mine multiple times a week for smoothies and love it in the winter for soups!

Digital Scale

I find this helpful in baking (sourdough) as well as when I meal prep and want to separate meat and in cooking for weighing vegetables.

Vegetable & Fruit Peeler

Everyone needs a really good peeler and the Swiss peelers really do work the best. I find especially if you like winter squashes they all don’t work great and this is my favorite.

Kitchen Tongs

I use these for everything – I find them to be the perfect size. Used for grilling, serving veggies, keeping hands clean during meal prep, taking meat out of a slow cooker etc…

Mini Spatula Set

Comes in handy for getting the remainders out of a jar (peanut butter) and mixing smaller batters. Fun item for a child who loves to bake.

Whisk Set

I love to use this for eggs, dressings and sauces, especially the mini one. Fun item for a child who loves to bake.

Mini Stainless Steel Spatula

Super handy for flipping pancakes, serving and easier for little helper hands to use.

Herb Scissors

Quickly removes leaves from the stems of fresh herbs with herb stripper. Snip herbs in perfectly sized pieces right onto plates and pans. Say good-bye to tedious mincing and chopping with the most useful, fun kitchen gadget ever!
