I wanted to highlight some products that are kitchen essentials for me. As I learn to set up my kitchen with high quality items, I’ve realized that some items are more useful than others. Some are fun splurges. Some I simply couldn’t live without. I’ve used some of the following items for over half a year. I’ll explain some of the benefits of each item to describe why they are kitchen essentials in my household.
Every kitchen needs a great breakfast pan. My Ozeri Stainless Steel Earth Pan is the right size for making morning eggs and sausages. The product has a great non-stick surface, which makes it easy to clean.
Capresso Espresso and Cappuccino Machine
Excellent kitchens have an espresso and cappuccino maker to help entertain guests. I always like to offer a deluxe coffee treat for the family when they come to visit. My Capresso product is easy to use and simple to clean. Whether you are frothing milk or serving a dark espresso, the product is a great addition to the kitchen.
Kitchen Essentials from Tovolo
Tovolo is a kitchen product company that I reviewed a while back around Thanksgiving. I got some neat products, such as a kitchen rake for pasta, a baster, and square ice cube molds. All of the items are essential products for newlyweds and would make a great gift.
Cuisinart DCC-2650 Coffee Maker
The Cuisinart DCC-2650 model coffee maker has been my favorite since 2009. I first received the item as a gift from my husband when he was my boyfriend. Back then, I was trying some weird coffee diet that a personal trainer had told me about at the gym. Years later, the coffee diet is no longer part of my life, but the coffee maker is.
Sowden Oskar Softbrew 2-Cup Coffee Maker
For days when I need a quick sip of coffee, my small Sowden coffee maker is an absolute necessity to have in my kitchen. The product is really cute and doesn’t take up much room. I’m able to easily store the coffee maker in the corner of a cupboard, which is great for people who don’t have a ton of kitchen space.
Map My State Mugs
One of my most special items in my kitchen would be the mugs I got from Map My State. I like that the mugs memorialize the two places that my husband and I have lived so far in our time together. The mugs make a sweet Valentine’s gift or a gift to a sweetheart on his birthday.
