We decided to put together a list of all the products we use in the kitchen most. From kitchen essentials, to more specialized items like doughnut pans. We hope you guys will find this useful!
Here are all the items we use the very most in our kitchen.

A good microplane is a must. We use a lot of citrus zest in our recipes, like for this refreshing Lemon & Thyme Cake which has zest in the frosting and cake batter!
These are how you get beautiful swoops for your cake and cupcake frosting, like on our One Bowl Chocolate Sheet Cake. They are good for more than just frosting though! Spreading batter in a pan, using as a mini spatula, they have many many uses!
Every kitchen needs a good quality chefs knife. It’s the go-to knife in the kitchen that does most the heavy lifting. We love this one because it’s lightweight and has a thin, sturdy and very sharp blade.
Wooden spoons are essential in every kitchen. They’re so versatile and often used for sauteing, stirring, straining, flipping, everything! These ones are sturdy and easy to clean.
Having a great serrated knife can be so helpful in the kitchen. We love this one for its razor sharp teeth that slides through food with ease and precision.
Although this is called a crepe pan, we prefer to call it our breakfast pan, as its large surface make it great for making pancakes, and omelets in addition to crispy thin and delicious crepes.
We have one large pot in our kitchen and it’s this stock pot. Not only is it great for making a large batch of stock, but it’s a great soup and pasta pot too! We also love it because unlike other stock pots, this one is super lightweight while still being very durable.
Multi-sized baking sheets are a must in every kitchen! We love these ridged baking sheets for their great strength and ability to allow for more even baking and overall browning.
We never knew how much we needed a great roasting pan in our kitchen until we got a great roasting pan in our kitchen! This roasting pan is large enough to fit a full sized turkey or roast, but versatile enough to handle a small chicken or a couple Cornish hens. It’s also dishwasher safe, making cleanup a breeze!
We love durable cookware and this set is one of our favorites. We love the ease of the nonstick surface, but that they can still handle metal utensils as well as a really high heat for a great sear. They’re also reasonably priced for the number of pots and pans you get, with long lasting durability.
A simple set of measuring spoons and cups is essential in every kitchen. We love these so much because they’re long lasting, dish washer safe and provide you with more than just the standard sizes and measurements.

This popsicle mold is out go-to.
This Popsicle Mold is fast freezing.
We get a ton of use out of our Silicone Ice Cream Bar Mold. We love the size because it’s not too huge. We use it in our recipe for Mango Lassi Bars, our Crunchy Peanut Butter Pie Pops, and our Strawberry Cheesecake Bars.
We love making our own pasta! You can see our Homemade Pasta post, where we show you how to make squid ink, spinach, beet, and saffron flavored pasta! We also have really fun recipes for Herb Laced Pasta, and Floral Laced Ravioli.
A pasta drying rack is essential if you’re making any kind of long strand pasta. We use it in our recipe for Homemade Pasta. We love this pasta drying rack because it’s collapsable for easy, compact storage!
This Gnocchi Board makes preparing gnocchi (and other pasta shapes) so much easier. It’s what we use to make recipes like our Caprese Gnocchi, or our Sausage and Kale Baked Gnocchi.
This pasta maker is our go-to. Stainless steel, and adjustable in thickness. It’s so convenient and does a lot of the arm work for you.We use it to make our homemade pasta.
Making spaetzle with a spaetzle maker makes the process so much easier. We have spaetzle in our Schnitzel recipe, as well as Pesto Spaetzle bake recipe.
If you have a countertop that is tiled and has grooves, this pastry board is the perfect solution. It’s also great for keeping a cooler temperature ensuring your dough (or melted chocolate) won’t heat up too quickly.
We love having this Spider Strainer it comes in handy more than you think! From fishing out ravioli, gnocchi or even fried items like hush puppies.
