Kuhn Rikon, White Original 4-Inch Swiss Peeler, Set of 1 Kuhn Rikon, White Original 4-Inch Swiss Peeler, Set of 1

5 years strong and not a dull moment between the two of us. By far my favorite peeler. There's really not much else I can say other than get you one!

$14.95

One of my Kitchen Basics. Used for grating Parm, zesting lemons, nutmeg dustings during the holidays and SO much more. Did I mention these babes are made in the USA. Arkansas and Texas to be exact?! I've got this exact one in yellow. 4 years of daily use and no signs of dulling down. WIN.

ZYLISS Susi 3 Garlic Press "No Need To Peel" - Built in Cleaner - Crusher, Mincer and Peeler ZYLISS Susi 3 Garlic Press "No Need To Peel" - Built in Cleaner - Crusher, Mincer and Peeler
$22.99

This bad boy was actually a gift from a girl friend last year. She sent it along with a cookbook as a pick-me-up.... how sweet right?! I'm not gonna lie. I looked at this thing sideways. I have never liked garlic presses because they just don't really work. But being a gift and what not I decided to try it out. SHOCK. Followed by awe. I've used pressed double this price point and been totally disappointed. So the fact that this was under $25 and WORKED, and then has kept working for over a year now. I'm sold. This will be the only garlic press I ever get, buy, send, gift. Period.

Zyliss Easy Control Handheld Slicer Zyliss Easy Control Handheld Slicer
$81.24

So the exact one, from 5 years ago, is no longer in production. The only difference I can tell is that the handle on mine is red. You will (of course) need to be careful with using this guy, as it's essentially a blade used for shaving. This gadget is super compact, lightweight, sharp, and multipurpose. I use him weekly to shave paper thin cucumber ribbons for cocktails, thin ribbons of zucchini and squash for salads, and can easily buzz through several potatoes for chips, gratins, and bakes.

$10.83

I lie. I actually own 8 of these. And also 4 in 2 larger sizes. I need more too LOL These bad boys are the workhorses of my kitchen. They hold scraps. Prepped ingredients who wait their turn to visit the fry pan. You've already seen all my roasted potato pics in a shiny silver bowl... this is that bowl. Multipurpose, light weight, durable. They take a proper beating without any complaint.

Strawberry Huller, Stainless Steel Strawberry Huller, Stainless Steel

I'm so obsessed with this little dude that I made a whole reel on it. An awesome reel might I add. So while I don't reach for this huller if I'm eating one strawberry, I run to him when I need to quickly core a whole bunch. For pie. Jam. Eating. Whatever it is that you want to do with a whole bunch of strawberries! BONUS kid safe. So your littles can help "prep" and still have fingers at the end. WIN.

Long Tomato Stem Corer, Melon Baller, Stainless Steel, Set of 2 Long Tomato Stem Corer, Melon Baller, Stainless Steel, Set of 2
$7.95

You're right. You don't need 2 tomato hullers. Unless you want help coring tomatoes in the kitchen that is. OR... give one as a stocking stuffer or white elephant gift. Oh the options. I grow tomatoes in a little garden so find this super helpful for prep! Another kid friendly gadget that won't leave you worried about little fingers missing. The pointy bits are indeed sharp, so keep them for the slightly older crew.

GreaterGoods Digital Food Kitchen Scale, Measures in Grams and Ounces GreaterGoods Digital Food Kitchen Scale, Measures in Grams and Ounces
$13.88

When I tell you this revolutionized my baking... I honestly never considered myself a baker because everything came out so subpar. I thought I didn't "get that gene". Apparently, the gene is a proper food scale! I've had this for just over a year and I now confidently say I BAKE. And for the coffee connoisseur, this guy also happens to be perfect for brewing at home!

Mini Berry Colander, 3 Cup, 6 inch, Copper and Stainless Steel Mini Berry Colander, 3 Cup, 6 inch, Copper and Stainless Steel
$15.99

I have 2 small berry Colanders, and this is one of them! The other, is a light blue one that was gifted and I haven't a clue what the brand name is. Both work like a charm for not just berries, but also for draining watery veg like cucumbers before adding to sauces!

Polder Candy/Jelly/Deep Fry Thermometer Stainless Steel with Pot Clip Polder Candy/Jelly/Deep Fry Thermometer Stainless Steel with Pot Clip
$10.95

I had never needed one of these until adventuring into the world of homemade caramels last Christmas. I thought, $10 bucks is worth it since caramels and candies can be so particular. I'd also ventured down the path of homemade ice cream and frothy lattes so this just made sense. Being able to have the perfect caramel syrup just sounded like a dream. I never imagined the use I'd get out of this thing! SO glad I purchased!

Each cube holds 1 Tablespoon so measuring is a breeze. I know the description says stackable and lids. But I want to make sure you saw that part HAHA
