My Top Ten Kitchen Items

Here's a list of the top 10 items in my kitchen, in no particular order.

1. Microplaner These are hand held graters and they get used 3-5x a week at my house. I just made a grilled cheese sandwich and grated my cheese first. I love this item.

2. Crockpot My crockpot is used 1-2x a week and it makes my life so much easier. My crockpot is 9 years old and going strong!

3. Glass pyrex measuring cups I love these for measuring liquid. I use a separate set of plastic cups for measuring dry goods.

4. Glass pitcher I use a glass pitcher to steep my tea in. I am from the south and we love our sweet tea!

5. Computer~ Say what? Yep, no mistake. I love my computer in the kitchen because that's where all my new recipes hide.

6. Hand Held Mixer I have a kitchen aid but there are things you can not do with a kitchen aid. You can't whip fluffy icing in the stand up mixer. But the hand held one does an amazing job of whipping anything!

7. Kitchenaid Mixer I do absolutely love my kitchenaid as well. For mixing together my baking or for making bread. It's awesome!

8. Food Processor As someone who makes her own salsa, hummus, guacamole (see a trend here? ) I must have a good food processor. It also makes awesome pesto and gets my fruit ready for jam.

9. These new bpa free cups with a straw and a lid. have you seen them? I have like 7 of them now and could use a few more. They are awesome for those of us with older kids who will not use a sippy cup anymore. They are my favorite cups. See pic below.

10. Plastic storage bags These are so versatile in my kitchen. I use them to freeze flour, yeast, fruit and any thing else I can think of. I don't think I could run my kitchen without them.

What are the must haves in your kitchen? Not everyone's will be the same as we don't all cook the same way. :) I love to hear what everyone else can't live without. Tell me one thing you must have in your kitchen?


  1. It is the season for the Crock Pot! Just cooked some Butternut Squash in mine :)

  2. I made butternut squash last week. I love butternut squash. Are you just cooking it in there or making soup or what? :)


I love to hear your thoughts. Please share with me!
