Kitchen Scale

I consider a kitchen scale a necessity. I use this scale (my favorite of ALL the scales I’ve ever tried) every single day.

Homemade Ice Cream Container

If homemade ice cream makes you happy, these cute (functional) ice cream storage containers will make you even happier. I’m not even going to tell you how many I have.

Bench Scraper/Knife

I know I talk about this nifty bench scraper/cutter all the time, but I’m in love. I use it constantly – cutting dough into portions, scraping flour-crusted countertops, and my kids use it for safe chopping.

Immersion Blender

Immersion blenders are so dang handy. I love mine! It’s so nice to be able to blend things without transferring to a real, live blender.

Fine Mesh Strainer

These fine mesh strainers are indispensable in my kitchen – I use them for washing fruit, draining pasta, straining pudding/custard, sifting dry ingredients.

Cookie Scoops

I have the small, medium, and large of these cookie scoops, and as I say all the time on my blog: I love them.

Garlic Press

No need to peel the garlic cloves first with this baby; it’s my favorite garlic press (and I’ve owned several).

9.5-Inch Deep Pie Plate

Inexpensive and durable, I have a couple of these 9.5-inch pie plates on hand for deep dish pie baking needs (and whisking up French toast batter!)

Bread Bags

I use these bags for all my homemade bread; they are long and can fit standard and large loaves with lots of room to spare!
