Breville BOV900BSS The Smart Oven Air, Silver – I previously owned a Breville Smart Oven which was great. When the air fryers came out a few years ago, I really wanted one, but I didn’t want another appliance on my counter and I didn’t want to store it. This year I discovered that Breville had a air fryer built into their new Smart Oven Air. I gave my old one away to a good home and replaced it with this one. It’s wonderful. I love to air fry the Crispy Egg Rolls in it, I can roast veggies, do toast, whatever my big oven can do, this one can too and it doesn’t heat up the house.
Instant Pot – This has quickly become one of my must have kitchen appliances. This is a rice cooker, slow cooker and pressure cooker all in one! If you use the pressure cooking setting you can make dishes in no time. I actually have two of them – the 6 quart Instant Pot LUX60V3 V3 6 Qt 6-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Sauté, Steamer, and Warmer– and because I do a lot of cooking and freezing I also have the 8 qt<Instant Pot DUO80 8 Qt 7-in-1 Multi- Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer/div>
Food Scale– Escali 157BO Arti Glass Digital Scale, 9″ x 6.5″ x 0.75″, Black Obsidian If you’re into Weight Watchers, you need a food scale. I use it every day, several times a day. Also perfect for weighing out dough (as in Homemade Slider Buns and Whole Wheat Pizza Dough) so each portion is the same to keep the points consistent. Any scale will do, but I prefer the flat kind.
Of course I have a fully “loaded” kitchen as I love to cook but these are some of my favorites:
Garlic Rocker– I love using this garlic rocker, but I also use the food processor often if I need a lot of minced garlic.
