Small Appliances

These are my most used small kitchen appliances that would make great gifts!

  1. AIR FRYER – This is my most used appliance – we use it daily. I upgraded to the Corsori this year. It’s a GAME CHANGER – does a whole chicken that tastes better than rotisserie!
  2. NESPRESSO Vertuo – Did you know that the official Nespresso pods are recyclable? I just gather them up and mail them bag in the free bags they send you.
  3. Cuisinart GRIDDLER
  4. INSTANT POT
  5. KitchenAid Stand Mixer
  6. Cuisinart Food Processor – I recommend a big one!
  7. Hand Mixer – I love my Cuisinart!

Tools and Gadgets

I own every one of these items and use them daily!

  1. This is the kitchen scale I use – an OXO 11lb one with pull out front. I’ve tried several and go back to this one every time.
  2. Thermapen Instant Read Thermometer – I use this ALL THE TIME. You can’t get them on amazon and I used to recommend the cheap version but no more, not now that I’ve used the original. Plus: no batteries corroding when washing!
  3. Cookie Scoops are always on my list and make a great stocking stuffer – they come in all sorts of sizes!
  4. I use my Silpats every time I bake – they are fantastic for people who love cookies.
  5. I love the Dash Mini Waffle Makers – and they have griddles too. These are great single serve – it was great when I was losing weight – and would be fantastic for a college student in a dorm.

Hostess or Fun Anyone Gifts

These are all fun things to give as a hostess gift or to someone who you’re just not sure what to buy them. Some of these might actually be on MY list…

  1. Wilton Navy & Gold Collection: There is always a reason to have more measuring tools and tips, especially when they’re pretty.
  2. Fun Bar Tools: I love the gold collection – would pop in any room.
  3. Coffee Accessories, like the mug+heater – perfect for the coffee lovers!
  4. For the pet lover: these molds would be great if they want to make my blueberry dog treats!
  5. Brown Sugar Saver: These come in handy and will keep brown sugar moist.
  6. Mud Pie Dip Set: I’m a sucker for anything Mud Pie – this set is cute!
