1. Nespresso Inissia Capsule Coffee Machine

No day should ever begin without using my Nespresso machine. Love is an understatement. It brews a perfect cup of coffee in no time and the milk frother is heaven when a cappuccino is needed!

2. KitchenAid Adjustable Hand-Held V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

Every kitchen needs a mandoline. If you want a simple, compact, hand-held one for quick slicing, I use the KitchenAid V-Blade.

For a more multi-use mandoline, my go to is the OXO Good Grips Steel Professional Mandoline Slicer.



The OXO mandoline is very sturdy, very sharp, easy to store and easy to clean. You can slice, crinkle cut and julienne!

Please purchase a safety mitt if you'll be using these tools in the kitchen...your fingers will thank you for it! I use NoCry Cut Resistant Gloves for this purpose.







3. Vitamix 780 Blender

This probably gets the most use in my kitchen: from smoothies and smoothie bowls to soups, sauces and dressing, this blender is used all day! It's powerful and quiet and also a simple clean up.

4. Superfast Thermapen

This is not the most glamourous pick but I couldn't live without my instant read thermometer for the most accurate way to cook meat to perfection. Never end up with an underdone chicken or a well-done steak again!

5. Pre Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet

Whether you're looking for the perfect crust on your steak, or want a crispy outside to your cornbread, or you're baking a skillet pie, or frying up bacon, I always use my cast iron skillet. It's essential in every kitchen!
