Whiskers on kittens and warm woolen mittens may not be among my favorite things, but tools that make time spent in the kitchen easier are!
A favorite new tool is an immersion blender. Not a day goes by that it isn’t used for everything from breakfast smoothies to pureeing soups and sauces to mashing veggies. Along with attachments for whisking and processing, it has all but replaced both the mixer and the blender.
A warming drawer has so many uses. I like to have food ready before guests arrive so I can enjoy their company, and it stays perfectly in the warming drawer until serving time. It’s also useful for heating dishes before plating and to warm bread at the last minute.
A cutting board doesn’t sound too exciting, but I’m crazy about mine which has three little bowls set in the board. When I am chopping multiple things, it’s very handy to have a place to put each one as it is done.
These days there are a variety of single cup coffee makers from which to choose, but this one from Nespresso can’t be beat. What I love is the frother attached right to the machine, and there’s no easier way to make cappuccino, my favorite way to have coffee. I also like the convenience of ordering the coffee pods online and having them appear at the door the next day.
No kitchen is complete without a good set of knives, but who says they can’t be cute as well as functional? I found these at an outdoor market in France, and they were a must have that haven’t disappointed.
Well, there you have it, some of my favorite kitchen things. I’d sure like to know yours in case there’s something I need!
