My kitchen is not fully stocked yet, but its not to bad. I have many favorite kitchen products obviously, but I will keep this list to my top 5. This will be harder than you think for this girl! Let's get started before I start second guessing my list!
First on the list is actually first and second. And it's a necessity. (see how efficient I am?!) Number one is the Range and Number two is the microwave/range hood.
The second thing is the microwave range hood. I knew I wanted an above range microwave. This is an inside wall in our house. So we originally thought we would need one that just recirculates the air instead of venting it outside. When the house was gutted we could have had this changed and had a vent added. However, if we did that we would need to make some changes (aka sacrifices) that we were not willing to give up. So back to the original one. Again, I wanted a black one so they matched (My things MUST match...its an illness) And the whirlpool Gold was the perfect solution. It has my favorite buttons, like popcorn and reheating plates along with the must - baked potatoes. But this microwave takes it a step further. It comes with a removable rack so you can cook twice as much stuff at once. No more waiting to use the microwave. And it also has a really cool melt/soften butter button which I love! Check it out further here (I would also accept it's "lower" version for less money)
Now, the last item on my list was a tie. It was either my tupperware containers with blue seal, or the pampered chef Ultimate Mandolin. Since I don't have my pampered chef stuff replaced yet - a party is on the to do list - and I keep my tupperware containers on my counter, I have to give the win to them. I don't necessarily use them every day, but when I do use them I never have to worry about whats inside. No bugs (ick!) no air "leaks" which means whats inside is always fresh and ready to go. I suppose I should mention I use mine for my flour, sugar, brown sugar and powdered sugar, respectively.
So there you have it - my favorite top 5 kitchen items (currently in my kitchen! ha!) And honestly, the only thing I would add would be my pampered chef stuff. I hope you enjoyed this break from the crafty life.
PS - if you want to see my whole kitchen, I will be posting those pics on my personal blog sometime soon. http://inmytoday.blogspot.com/
