Kitchen Gadgets + Tools
Zulay Electric Milk Frother – This little device is a game-changer for me. I use it to froth milk for cappuccinos, to make Dalgona coffee, and to whip a smidge of cream. It’s easy to clean and does its job so fast.
Cuisinart Smart Stick – I use this combination of gadgets all the time. I use the blender attachment for pureeing a soup right in the pot. The chopper is perfect for making small batches of pesto. The whisk attachment really helps emulsify dressings.
Cuisinart Belgian Waffle Maker – Makes evenly baked, perfectly thick waffles. I admit it took me a while to figure out just the right amount of batter to pour in, but cleaning was easy for when I didn’t.

KitchenAid Pour Over Coffee Brewer – I want to be one of those people who actually heat water and then slowly pours it over ground coffee. However, I am not. I hate mornings. This coffeemaker gives me the pour-over nuance without the work. It meets the Gold Cup standards of the Specialty Coffee Association of America, so that was enough to convince me to buy it.
OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Spiralizer – I love that you make different types of noodles with this, although my go-to is the spaghetti-size blade. It makes veggie-noodles easy to prep, although the suction cup doesn’t always stay suctioned to the counter.

ErgoChef 15 pc. Pro and Prodigy Knife Set – I grew up with the owners of this Danbury-based company. They are the best knives whether you go for their higher-end series or this moderately-priced one. Also, the tongs in this set have become my go-to.
OXO Good Grips Wooden Spoon Set – I love these spoons. I use them pretty much every day. They are sturdy and feel nice in my hand. It’s such a basic item, but I’ve bought other wooden spoons that have easily warped and gotten splintery.
Infinity Jars – These jars are really good at keeping things fresh. I keep my supply of homegrown and home-dried crushed red pepper mix in the 250ml jar and it’s just as potent as the day I ground it.
