KitchenAid Mixer – This piece belongs in the product hall of fame – Twelve years, no worries. Basically a drill press with a dough hook. It’s a beast!
Lodge Cast Iron – Tired of skillets warping on you? Learn to cook with/take care of cast iron. No soap; wipe it down with an oiled rag or paper towel after cooking (scrub with salt for messier, stickier jobs). Both of my grandmothers swore by these and I’m starting to see why.
Carbon Steel Skillet – Similar to cast iron in heat retention and durability. Lighter and easier to handle.
