Kitchen Gadgets that Make Cooking Effortless

Posted by Angie

Are you a whiz in the kitchen or a wizard with frozen meals?

Today I’m sharing some of my favorite kitchen gadgets that can help any level of cook.


My first and all time favorite is the KitchenAid mixer.  I know a lot of brides-to-be are adding these to their wedding registry and what a smart choice it is! KitchenAid has been in the appliance business for many, many years.  It’s no surprise either.  The KitchenAid mixer is a very versatile appliance.  It can be used for a number of things from mixing, kneading, grinding wheat to juicing oranges and slicing vegetables. This is a workhorse in the kitchen. Stop by Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up your stand mixer, and other KitchenAid products.

You are also going to need some quality kitchen utensils.  My dad always taught me to buy the best you can afford. Why? Because using quality tools makes the job that much easier.  I highly recommend purchasing quality bamboo or wooden spoons and spatulas. World Market carries a nice variety of wooden utensils, so stop by the next time you’re at The Avenue. 


Along with quality utensils, you’re going to need quality ingredients.  We use extra virgin olive oil in our home like crazy! The quality of your ingredients will affect the overall taste of your dish. The Epicurean Olive Oil Company carries just that…quality olive oils, vinegars, and seasonings.  I guarantee you’ll taste a difference in your dishes!

Finally, my last gadget recommendation for the kitchen.  Well, it isn’t really a gadget but something I highly recommend, and really wish (please, oh please) would make a huge comeback…the classic apron!  I love aprons and I use aprons.  Vintage ones.  New ones.  Plain ones.  Pretty ones.  One of my current favorites came from Kirkland’s and has my initial on it.  It doesn’t directly make cooking effortless but it definitely makes clean up effortless!
