Pyrex 2-Cup Measuring Cup – $6.99
I don’t know what I would do with my 2-cup Pyrex measure. It’s easy to read the increments and it even includes metric measures (for when I don’t feel like converting measurements in my head). Since it’s glass, it doesn’t absorb odors and won’t stain. Mine is used every time I bake.
Oxo Good Grips Silicone Pastry Brush – $6.99
This silicone-based pastry brush is a lifesaver. Previously, I would fine brush hairs in my baked goods (not a an appealing outcome) but not with this silicone brush. It’s also easy to clean and doesn’t absorb flavors and won’t stain. The brush is also heat resistant up to 600F.
Oxo Good Grips Serrated Peeler – $7.99
I threw out my old vegetable peeler after I received this one as a gift. It’s truly amazing how easily it peels even the hardest, roughest vegetables and tubers. Just last night it quickly cleaned my sweet potatoes.
Oxo Good Grips Pastry Scraper – $8.99
Ever try to clean bread dough or pie pastry off the counter? This slick little kitchen gadget makes cutting dough and scraping dough off kitchen counters a breeze.
Oxo Good Grips Cookie Scoop – $13.99
I used to pick on Martha Stewart for her fixation on cookie scoops, until I used one. It’s genius. No more cookie dough mess and my cookies are consistently uniform and round. I even use it to shape meatballs. This size yields a 3.5 inch cookie.
Back to Basics 5-Piece Home Canning Kit – $14.65
I enjoy canning seasonal fruits and veggies. This kit includes the basic tools that make canning simple – jar lifter, magnetic lid lifter, canning funnel, tongs, and jar wrench. All with cool-touch handles, so no burns!
Lodge Logic Skillet – $15.97
I have a set of 3 cast iron skillets ranging in size from 6″ to 13″ and I find myself using one more often than my high-priced, fancy-pants pans. Once the cast iron skillet is well-seasoned, it offers an excellent non-stick, easy to clean pan. Durable? I also inherited my great-great-grandmother’s skillet last year.
Pyrex Storage 6-Piece Rectangular Set – $17.55
I prefer glass containers since they don’t absorb flavors and won’t stain. Also, the glass dishes (not the lids) are oven safe and can be used to roast meats or veggies.
Polder Original Cooking All in One Timer – $18.45
I can’t cook or bake without using this handy kitchen timer. Not only does it stop me from burning cookies, it includes a meat thermometer to let you know when the pot roast or Christmas ham are ready to take out of the oven. Dual timer and thermometer make it a must!
Bodum Assam Double-Wall Glasses, Set of 2 – $19.99
Double-wall glasses can hold both hot and cold beverages, keeping drinks insulated. The thermal glasses remain cool to the touch and won’t sweat when it’s hot outside. Fill with your favorite beer or hot cappuccino, and enjoy. Love them!
