 This is a collection of the most used kitchen tools we own. Have fun looking through!

Nutri Ninja 2-in-1 


I love my ninja! I can mix anything in a jiffy with it. I love it for smoothies and for mixing up dough. We make slushies and dairy-free ice cream in our Ninja. I got mine from Sam's for cheaper than Amazon though.

IGLOO 26 lb. Freestanding Ice Maker 


Ever since we got the Berkey Water Filter I have wanted a ice maker that would use my filtered water. We found ours at Walmart which is cheaper than Amazon. Since we use ice very quickly we stopped our ice maker (on one of our fridges) from making ice and then dump the ice from the igloo into the fridge freezer. That way we have plenty of extra ice.

Berkey - Big Berkey Stainless Steel Water Filter with 2 Black Berkey Elements


We love our Berkey filter! Instead of black elements we have porcelain white filters. We use the filtered water from our Berkey in the igloo above so we can have filtered ice.

West Bend 2 Lb. Breadmaker


We use our breadmaker almost all the time. We have three but all are older versions of the one above.

Cuisinart GR-4N 5-in-1 Griddler


This is our gluten, dairy, and egg free griddle. All you people out there who don't have allergies are probably like "that sounds crazy." You don't know crazy 'til you see our family making three different batches of pancakes on three different griddles. In a tiny kitchen - Yeah, not fun.

Jack LaLanne JLPJB Power Juicer Juicing Machine


We love to juice. Orange juice. Apple juice. Carrot Juice. We even call our mother The Carrot Juice Lady. Yeah, I guess you could say juicing runs in our blood.

 After our old one broke from 12+ years of continuous use, we got a new one. We use ours to slice potatoes, tomatoes, cumcumbers, and well you get the idea. :)

2-qt. Yogurt and Greek Yogurt Maker with Glass Jar  


We eat yogurt like it's going out of season. I can buy a container of yogurt one day, then two or three days later.... Poof. So we started making yogurt since it's cheaper. A lot cheaper. We have an old west bend yogurt maker that looks similar to this. It doesn't look like you can buy our old one anymore so if ours breaks this would be my next choice.

Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet, 12-Inch


 We use ours to make everything from biscuits to pies. We even tried making pizza in it once! I am just having trouble figuring out how to keep the rust off..... When I find out there may just be a post about it!

VonShef Magical Defrosting Tray


We have a Miracle Thaw but this one is cheaper on Amazon. If you don't use you microwave - like we do - this is the perfect replacment. Just heat up the tray with hot water and put the meat on. We keep our meat in the package though. This is also good for camping.

The Pampered Chef Large Bar Pan 


This is our go-to cookie sheet. We have one, okay two, fine - three of them. Yes, we do love our cookies.

Presto 6-Quart Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker


This pressure cooker is awesome! Say I am running late on dinner. Just slide a whole chicken in the pot, season, then snap on the lid! Ta-da!

Pampered Chef 15" Large Flat Pizza Stoneware


These things are awesome if you want a non-toxic pizza crust. We have two, one for the gluten eaters and one for the gluten-less eaters. If we have no clean cookie sheets then we use these.

Hamilton Beach Stay Or Go Slow Cooker


There are three listings of the this same cooker here, here, and here. They are all different prices but the most expensive has the most reviews. We use ours to make our favorite dinner Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Procter-Silex Compact Grill


This thing is awesome if you want a gilled hot dog but don't want to start the grill. My whole family loves this thing. Especially the kids.

 There is no way to describe to you how much we love ice cream. Well, maybe. If we buy ice cream there are only two brands we buy: Bryers and Braums. Bryers and Braums ice cream just taste more natural and delicious than other brands. But homemade ice cream surpasses them all! Our two favorite homemade ice cream recipes are Chunky Monkey and Chocolate. We added organic chocolate chips to make it double chocolate chip!

Norpro 9-Inch Stainless Steel pie Pan


We don't use a microwave. Shocker right? I mean we have one its just we only use it for guests and such who can't live without one. These plates are an awesome replacement. Just put the food on it and slide in the oven. It takes a little bit more time but it's worth it because oven-heated food tastes so much better than microwaved food.

Pyrex Easy Grab 8 piece Bake And Store Set


These are also awesome for cooking without a microwave. You just put your raw food into the dish and slide into the oven. When it's ready you can just take it out, eat, then slide into the fridge and do it all over again. I would suggest not to heat your food more than three times. It can make your food taste weird.

Orgreenic Frying Pan, 10 "


I love to cook on non-stick and not have to worry about the chemicals seeping into my food. This pan is just like any other non-stick pan. Except it uses zero chemicals! How awesome is that?

  1. Love my griddle! I have that Presto one. Also love my slow cooker and really want mandolin and yogurt maker. I used to make yogurt in the slow cooker but it was so time consuming, I now just buy plain yogurt at the store.
