Christmas is just a few weeks away, so I thought I would pull together a list of some of my favorite kitchen products. The products that made the list are all affordable, costing between $15 and $100. These items are also practical, most will cut down on preparation times.
1. Chopper - $29.95
I use this to chop vegetables for soup. It saves me a significant amount of time. Everyone should have one of these.
2. Cheese Grater - $14.95
Freshly grated cheese tastes better. This saves you time, and it is safer to use than other graters.
3. Non Stick Rolling Pin - $26.99
This is a must have for anyone who likes to bake sugar cookies.
4. Hand Held Mixer - $39.95
It doesn't require much storage space and it gets the job done just as well as expensive mixers.
5. Espresso Machine - $99.95
I bought this for Charles last year. It is affordable and easy to use.
6. A Casserole Dish with a Lid - $49.95
I use mine all the time.
7. Punch Bowl/Cake Stand - $30
One product with two uses. Perfect for city dwellers with limited kitchen space.
Available at Williams-Sonoma
8. Picnic Basket - $76.95
It is a must for anyone to loves Movies in the Park as much as I do. The built in cooler is a nice touch.
9. Crock Pot - $46.95
Crock pots are great because you can do the prep work the night before, and in the morning set it. When you come home dinner is ready.
10. Mixing Bowl - $19.95
I just purchased this and I love that it has a spout and a handle - perfect for pouring cupcakes.
