Kate’s Picks: My 10 Most Frequently Used Kitchen Products

Food & Entertainment

My kitchen is the heart of our home, and cooking for friends and family is my favorite way to show them love. Because the footprint of our space itself is so small, I’ve learned to select items that work overtime for our needs.

Today I’m sharing ten kitchen items I couldn’t live without and use almost every day. From classic utensils to reusable storage bags to a food processor, these items are the powerhouses of our kitchen.


KitchenAid Food Processor

This food processor is one of the most hardworking kitchen tools I have. I use it to make sauces, pestos, pie crusts…the list goes on!


Fellow Tea Kettle

An electric kettle that looks great on the table and keeps water at optimal temps until you are ready to pour. I use it every day!


Material Iconics Kitchen Set

I love the design and small footprint of the Iconics set. l I keep it right next to the stove, and it has all the essentials necessary for cooking any meal.


Soma Water Jug

This filtered water jug reduces chlorine, mercury, copper, and more from our family’s drinking water. The plastic used is BPA-free, and I love the simple design and wooden handle!


Bamboo Cutting Board

This cutting board is a workhorse in our kitchen. It includes little “bowls” for chopped items and helps keep me organized while prepping for a meal.


Le Creuset White Dutch Oven

I’m a big fan of buying cookware that will last a lifetime and can be used for multiple tasks. I use our dutch oven for soups, roasts, and even to bake bread!


Glass Jars

I use these jars daily to quickly make simple salad dressings, dips, and pickled veggies that make meal prep during the week easy and extra tasty with little effort.


Wooden Spoons

You can never have too many wooden spoons and these carved ones only get better with age and use.



We said goodbye to plastic bags this year and replaced them with Stashers. The great thing is you can use them in the microwave to steam fish or heat up a sandwich!


French Press

A french press that brings a little style to your countertop. I love using this each morning, and the added splash of metallic gold pairs nicely with our hardware. It’s the little things, you know?
