My Kitchen Essentials

Written by Kajsa IngelssonJuly 30, 2021

Everyone that knows me knows that I love cooking and throwing dinner parties. Depending on what’s on the menu and the amount of guests, it can be quite a tedious work to whip up a beautiful meal. Luckily, I have a few machines in my kitchen that makes life and cooking so much easier.

Pull Chopthis hand powered machine will make your life so much easier! Just roughly chop your vegetables, herbs or fruit and place them in the machine and pull on the string to get finely diced and chopped ingredients.

A Blender – ah, the OG of kitchen machines. Make smoothies, sauces, dips… The posibilities are endless. Vitamin and Omega are tried and tested to be the best!

A Juicer – I love juicing first thing in the morning. I am using the Hurum juicer because its pretty, small and easy to clean.

A Mandolinthis is a chefs tool that makes cutting and slicing so much easier. Please be careful and use protective gloves or plastic holder when using though. I have seen my fair share of nasty injuries with this bad boy.

A Spiralizer – spagetti everything! Carrots, potatoes, cucumber, beets… Just use your imagination and a good spiralizer to make your fave pasta dish with vegetables instead!

Measurement Cups – I have both deciliter and cups, since I have lived on different continents. This also makes you be able to follow recipes without converting.

Bowls – big, small, tiny, medium… Bowls are a must both for cooking and for setting a beautiful table.

A Nut Milk Bag – I prefer to make my own nut milk. Its cheaper, tastier and you can use the pulp for baking. This bag is also used when you want to make vegan cheeses!

Glass Containers and Jars – for the pantry to store ingredients from the bulk store, to keep leftovers fresh or make different infusions and drinks. (witches loves jars btw)

Cast Iron Skillets and Pots – non stick coating is toxic and WILL start leaking into your food at a certain point. I have different variations of cast iron cookware in my kitchen instead. A little tip: don’t throw them in the dishwasher and do not use dish soap on them, you want the sticky oil coating to last.

Bees Wrap – this is the sustainable version of plastic cling wrap.

Wooden Spoons – I have always preferred to cook with wooden tools.

What do you think? Do you have any other tools or machines that have changed your kitchen life for the better? Please send me a message and I will be sure to include them in the post 🙂
