This is hands down the one big ticket item I recommend to folks stocking up their kitchens. This classic dutch oven will last you a lifetime, and is big enough to make family-style holiday feasts, as well as cozy braises, pastas, soups, and stews, alike. Prefer to fry up something sweet (sufganyot, we see you!)? This one pot can do it all!
Staub cocottes come in a variety of sizes, all the way up to 13.5 Quarts (whoa mama!), but this 5.5 Qt round cocotte is the size we recommend for every day use. And unlike a cast iron skillet, these enameled cast iron pots can be washed with dish soap. Can we get an amen?!
The Staub Braiser is made of the same high quality, heat retaining cast iron as the dutch oven, but has shorter, more shallow sides. It’s perfect for one pot meals (dinner party chicken or butternut squash and chorizo pasta!), roasting crispy potatoes, slow cooking meats, slow simmered soups. It’s got a tight fitting glass lid that keeps moisture in and makes it easy to monitor the cooking process at the same time. Could not, would not want to live without this!
Oh, how we love this storage system! Our family was introduced to the Zwilling Fresh & Save a year ago and it is no exaggeration to say we use this every single day.
Say hello to the small, compact, but powerful Zwilling vacuum sealer. Trust us, we’ve tried several larger varieties, and while they certainly get the job done, they take up a ton of space. Not only can this be easily tucked away in a silverware drawer, but it’s rechargeable and works with a variety of Zwilling containers and seals — from plastic storage bags, to glass containers with airtight sealing lids, to a wine sealer set. Like I said, we use this every single day.
Tell me these aren’t the cutest little cocottes you ever did see?! They’re microwave safe, oven safe, broiler safe, freezer-friendly, and come in sets of three. We use them for individual desserts like these molten chocolate lava cakes (recipe available in my free downloadable date night ebook!), savory baked ricotta, or to hold dips for parties (hummus, babaganoush, whipped feta dip, etc).
Truly the best kitchen shears out there! Cut through meats with ease, or quickly chop fresh herbs for garnish. In addition to cutting, the shears are also equipped with a bottle opener, screw cap opener, and a lid opener. Talk about convenient!
No, this isn’t just another baking dish. It’s the one I reach for again and again, despite the fact that I own at least 4 others. It’s timeless, elegant, easy-to-clean, and has sturdy handles that make lifting it in and out of the oven a total breeze. We love that it’s dishwasher safe (!!), but honestly it cleans so easily that we never resort to that. This is the one casserole dish we’re never letting go of.
This is our every day go-to blender for sauces, dressings, dips, and smoothies. It has both pulse and smoothie blend options, a convenient drinking lid that attaches directly to the blending cup, and can be popped directly into the dishwasher for easy cleaning. On top of all that, it is seriously sleek, modern, and compact. Can’t ask for more in a personal blender!
