Supplies for A Cozy Kitchen, Part II

DIY

A few weeks ago, I piled a bunch of the kitchen items I use on the regular to share with you all. When I did so, I felt like I had way too much for one post, so I figured I’d break it up into two posts. It also bought me some time to buy some new baking sheets because the ones I was using were not ok.

It’s like when you’re wearing a pair of white socks with heels that are stained even though they’re clean and then when you take off your shoes for bowling (or something like that), you feel the need to explain and be like, GUYS, THESE ARE JUST STAINED LIKE THIS!

Exactly like that…but with baking sheets.

Here is the rest of the stuff I love and can’t live without.

I like the baking sheets that are labeled “half sheets” and have a 1-inch rim.

I never use cookie sheets because I try to avoid having kitchen supplies that have only one use. Try roasting veggies on a cookie sheet, stuff will be all over your oven. Dumb invention, in my humble opinion.

This mandolin is super simple and I LOVE it. It’s a Japanese benriner mandolin. My parents have a super fancy one from another name brand that has a million parts, but the one you see here has a sharper blade and is much more straight-forward.

I use these two things probably the most out of everything in my kitchen.

This digital thermometer is magnetic so it sticks to the stove or fridge. I can set alarms when something reaches a certain temperature, which means I can walk away and not worry about a custard over cooking. And it’s super inexpensive.

Same goes for this digital scale. It’s simple and easy and cheap and actually very accurate.

I love this little food processor. It’s the perfect size for hummus or doing other small jobs that I often use it for. I don’t use a food processor a lot so this compact size is ideal.

I looove my hand immersion blender. I’d be lying if I said I used it all the time but when I do, I’m always like, this is so dang handy.

Oh this this fancier one, from Breville, that chills the custard base really quickly, but I’m not sure I can justify the expense and the space.

I use this 2 1/2-quart Le Creuset Sauce Pan a ton. It’s the little pot I use to make rice for myself, custard bases for ice cream and soup for one. It’s my absolute favorite!

Here are a variety of tools I use, too.

Lime squeezer. I have no interest in an electric juicer. I don’t have the room and cleaning that thing is soooo annoying. I like this simple contraption way better. The only downside is now I want one for oranges and lemons. I wish there was a way for all of them to do a variety of citrus.

few sizes of sieves but this small one comes in handy the most when I’m making cocktails. It’s ideal for straining pulp–not a strand gets through it!

Bench Scraper. Really great for moving around dough. Also, makes cleaning up your work surface super simple. Scrap, discard and keep it moving.

Ice Cream Scoopers. I have ones like this one in several sizes but I couldn’t find the other two sizes I use. I’m convinced Amelia got a hold of them and hid them. (I blame everything on her.)

Of course, I can’t live without this Spiralizer. It’s so fun and healthy.

Lastly, a new addition, meat grinder attachment for my Kitchenaid Mixer. Expect sausage recipes this summer! GET EXCITED! I know I am.

    You’ve covered my favorite kitchen supplies except for a salad spinner, which may come in Part II. I couldn’t get along without my digital scale, mini processor, immersion blender, bench scraper, Le Creuset pot, and, one of my very favorites, spiralizer. I think I’ll order the oven thermometer you recommend. I use an instant read but would love this one with an alarm – certainly worth the reasonable price.
    Back to the salad spinner, I’d be interested in one you would recommend.

    My husband and I love the Pampered Chef Mix ‘N Chop http://www.pamperedchef.com/shop/Cookware/Mix+%27N+Chop/2583
    Browning hamburger, smashing potatoes, crushing salsa ingredients, etc. is so easy with this thing. And we love electric skillets and crock pots but you have to have storage space.

    Do you use the digital thermometer for candy temp stuff, too (caramels, etc.)? Or the clip-to-the-side ones? I need to find a good one :-/

      No candy thermometers; those are annoying. I just use this digital one for caramel, candy, everything!

    I use my scoops (I have three sizes, too!) all the time. Perfect for portioning out batter for muffins or to make the perfect size meatballs. My spiralizer, though different from yours, is one of my new favorite toys. I also have a Kitchenaid meat grinder and have used it exactly once. Can’t wait to see what you use yours for!

    Hope I’m not being too nosey a cozy fan, but can we take a peak at your fave waffle maker? It’s not the most versatile tool, but… waffles! Thanks!!! xoxo

    These are some really cool kitchen tools. I need to get one those peelers for my zucchini! It is such a pain to do it without help! Great post!
