Kitchen Gadgets

What is a kitchen without a bunch of great gadgets? My friends actually nicknamed me Gadget Girl back in the day, and it pretty much still rings true.

Below are some kitchen must haves – some of which come in handy for more than just cooking everyday meals. You can order these items by clicking on the images.

Instant Pot

I tried a few recipes, but have mostly used it for cooking for my dogs (more about that HERE), one of which currently has cancer. The recipes I make for their high protein diet have really helped her these last few months, and the Instant Pot was a complete lifesaver, saving time and effort for sure.

Now that I am trying the Whole30 program, I will finally spoil myself a little and take advantage of the benefits of it, because frankly, I am still trying to get the hang of this whole process. I definitely need to do a lot more prep! Currently these run for $74.95 on Amazon, a great deal for sure!

KitchenAid 3-Speed Hand Blender

I have no doubt that there will be success in trying new salad dressings – my number one goal right now – so I am looking forward to the results.

I just ordered mine today so I am excited to get home and try it out on delicious ranch dressing.

Currently these are on Amazon for $40.90.

KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor

KitchenAid KFC3516WH 3.5 Cup Mini Food ProcessorI used this mini gem to make my first Whole30 Mayo recipe and the results were perfect! Use it to quickly chop, mix and puree – from chopping fresh veggies and herbs or making a homemade baby food, this compact and lightweight mini food processor is the perfect size for everyday use in the kitchen.
Easy to clean, dishwasher-safe work bowl, and a simple cord wrap and compact design for easy storage. Such an easy little food processor that is small enough to keep on your counter top and just an arms reach away.
