My favourite kitchen essentials

I often get asked about the tools I use in my kitchen as well as blenders and juicers. These are my top kitchen essential choices and most of them get used every day.

What can’t you do without in your kitchen? Let me know in the comments below. 

 

NUT MILK BAG 

This one is a must for nut drinks or cheese making. Easy to wash and travel with. I have a couple to swap in between juicing (when I use the blender for that) and nut milks. 

MY SANTOKU KNIFE

I absolutely love this knife! It’s beautifully made and easy to use. If you’re not ready to invest in one, simply look for a Santoku knife from a reputable brand. You don’t want the handle to come loose. 

DUAL PEELER

A good peeler can save so much time in your kitchen! I use mine for all sorts of things, especially to slice veggies “pasta” like for salad or julienne in no time. 

GLASS STRAWS

Oh these beauties! Ever since I discovered them I fell in love with them. I never liked using plastic straws, so I just didn’t use them at all, but with these glass ones, every drink is an experience. :) 

WATER DISTILLER

We use this distiller at home to purify tap water and it’s truly shocking to see what’s left on the bottom after a run. The water from it tastes amazing and the cost of running it comes down to approximately 8p/litre. I couldn’t recommend it enough, especially if you are in an area with poor quality water. 

SLOW STAR JUICER

For a very long time, I refused to get a juicer due to space and would just use my blender and a nut milk bag. Ever since I got my hands on his juicer I am in love with the ease of using it. It’s a slow juicer, so it doesn’t burn the nutrients through centrifugation, but it also creates so little waste and you get so much more out of your whole ingredients. 

FOOD PROCESSOR

Not a must, unless you can’t be bothered to do a lot of tasks by hand, like whisking, chopping, grating and mixing cake ingredients. I use it for my batch recipes and cakes as well as grinding small amounts of spices in the attachment head. It saved me so much time in batch cooking or simply making bigger amounts. And for a home appliance, it did really well each time I had to cater for a bigger event. 

HIGH-SPEED BLENDER

Besides my knife, this is the single most used machine in my kitchen. Nut milk, nut butter, smoothies, ice-cream, chopping small amounts (for big ones I used the food processor), milling, dressings, soups. You name it. My sturdy blender has done it and it makes life so much easier. 

ENTRY LEVEL BLENDER

Here’s also an entry level option, that I used up until I got my Vitamix. 

If you’d like to know about anything else, leave a comment here or in our Foodie Community and I’ll add it to the list. 

Lots of love,

Denisa xoxo
