Kitchen Tools and Appliances for Everyday

Different kitchen tools and equipment are needed every day in our kitchens. When a carpenter or plumber goes to work every day they have certain tools that they rely on to get their job done. I think that in the kitchen being the workplace that it is, you have to have certain tools to do the same. We all have our favorite kitchen tool or appliance that we count on every day.

We have grandchildren and we treasure the times when we have those sleepovers. Most sleepovers start off with making popcorn and then popping in a fun movie. 

We quit buying the microwave popcorn years ago given all of the bad press about the chemicals in the process. We choose the much healthier hot air popper, and the kids love it watching the popcorn fall into the bowl.

Often times I would make popcorn in our microwave using a brown paper bag. I think I ruined it doing this, as it burned up and quit working. Come to find out that we couldn't live a day without one so we had to run out and buy a new one. Wow, a new microwave just to heat my coffee.

 To my surprise, in the cautions of the new microwave, they advised not to use brown paper bags in your microwave. Most paper bags contain fragments of metal and can harm your microwave. Who knew?


When morning rolls around and everybody is up and about it's time to make the pancakes. I use my handy mixing bowl to mix the batter with my whisk. This mixing bowl makes it easy to pour the batter onto the griddle to make those perfect pancakes.

Some kitchen tools are simple, as in the case of the rolling pin. My grandmother made bread fresh every day, and I remember her rolling pin being as big as a baseball bat. Of course, I was a kid then but it was still a big rolling pin.

Speaking of simple kitchen tools here is a review my friend Susan wrote on this handy Pineapple Corer and Slicer. Complete with pictures of how it works, and which one she recommends to be the best and why. If you like fresh pineapple, then you’ll want to read her review.

Now my grandmother didn’t have the luxury of some of these kitchen tools. Whenever I make my fresh Tomato Pesto Pizza or my Oatmeal Caramel Apple Cookies I go to my trusty stand mixer to make the dough, it’s so easy to use and ready in minutes. Then I need my little food processor to chop up the ingredients for these tasty treats.

These are just some of the tools and appliances that I use in my kitchen and recommend for every kitchen. After all, this is where we work and we need the right tools for the job.

    1. Hi Sandy, I think that is what ruined my other one, because we made popcorn all the time in paper bags. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I used to have an air popper, but usually fix popcorn the way I have all my life -- on the stove in a pan. Never liked the taste of microwave popcorn - now that I know about the chemicals used I can see why! :) Today's kitchen aids certainly make our life easier, don't they? Love your recipes.

  9. So glad to have read your review Sam. I just got a new microwave after years of needing a new one, and I'm glad to read about the paper bags. I never knew this.

  12. Since major areas in India suffer extreme climatic conditions, the home appliances like air conditioner brings down the high temperature during summer while the room heaters makes the room warm during winter. Having appliances has also improved health and hygiene in the home. dehumidifier review
