In this post: Here you will find some of my hands-down favorites and pretty much can’t-live-without kitchen tools!

Every kitchen needs to have the basics – some pots and pans, serving dishes, etc. Essential kitchen tools make running a home, planning meals, and feeding your family so much easier!

Finally decorate your own home – with confidence!

You’re so much closer to a beautifully-decorated home than you think. You just need a little help to get there!

But if you’re just starting out or if you need some suggestions for your Christmas or birthday wish list, you may not be 100% sure what you’d find useful.

  1. I love love my Cusinart mini chopper/food processor. I seem to use it everyday. I keep it out on my counter in the place where I used to keep a toaster!

    A canning funnel. It has a larger opening than a regular funnel and comes in very handy. I keep it close because I use it often.

    Oxo manual can opener. In fact I love all the Oxo products live purchased.
