The more Joseph and I are in the kitchen cooking, the more tools we add to our kitchen tool belts. The following kitchen tools and utensils are currently in our kitchen and we both agree that they are tried-and-true tools and utensils that are sorely needed in any functional kitchen.
Steamer: I love steaming vegetables; it’s so quick and easy! This is definitely a staple kitchen tool in the Jen, Jo, and Paleo kitchen.There are so many other types of steamers out there, but we’ve found this one to suit our needs well. We also have a smaller steamer for those days when you just want veggies for yourself.
Food Processor: I always shied away from food processors because they seemed so bulky and outlandish, but wow after using this with my cooking I can’t imagine a kitchen with out! I love this one because it’s small and simple, and it tucks away on the kitchen counter easily. It’s very easy to use and to clean, and I love its multi-use features that allow me to slice, dice, chop, mince, grate, and blend!
Crockpot/Slowcooker: Crockpots are amazing tools to cook in bulk AND for easy out-of-the-way cooking. Just pop a few ingredients in the crockpot, turn it on, and go about your day. You’ll have dinner ready by the end of the day, no muss no fuss! This one is great because it’s also very simple and easy to use.
