7 Kitchen Tools I Can’t Live Without


7 great kitchen tools just can't live without! from karenehman.com

I’ve been posting lots of goodies lately as I bake up a storm for our youngest’s last day of school. His final baseball game. His last treats for his teachers. {Sniff,sniff! Someone hand me a hanky!} I thought now might be a great time for me to post some of my must-have kitchen gadgets I use over and over again.

You’re welcome.

brush1. Can’t say enough about this silicone basting brush ! No more fibers in our barbecue chicken.


2. I use this pot strainer for pasta, potatoes, and so much more! I’ve had mine since 1986!


3. A useful tool in my favorite color!!! This colander can drain and strain or just look cute holding fruit on your counter.

4. So quick and easy. I used to use the apple slicer for my kids’ lunches. Then, to keep the apple from turning brown, I’d secure it with a rubber band!


5. I love an enamel dutch oven ! Like seriously love. For making soup, or oven beef stew or a huge pot of goulash.


6. No more tears when chopping onions with this handy food chopper. I have had one for five years and use it often. Cleans up in a snap!


7. I love how these measuring cups show you the amount from both the sides and the top. I use these all the time. Dishwasher safe.

  1. My favorite gadget is a small manual half cup juicer that is three parts, the bottom holds the juice, the middle is the juicer and the top is a cover so you can store the juice in the fridge. I’m not giving a very good description, maybe I’ll post a picture later.!

  2. Stainless steel mixing bowls from our wedding. I own this book and it’s a GOOD read on how to open your home to others. Just wanted to wish everyone good luck!
