The Top 4 Kitchen Appliances I Recommend and Why
To make cooking easy and efficient, here are the top 4 kitchen appliances I recommend and why.
First, I recommend a standard 6-quart slow cooker for things like roasts, spaghetti sauce, chili, soups and stews. The recipes that I make almost always in my 6-quart slow cooker are below.
- The Best Homemade Spaghetti Sauce with Meat
- Our Family Favorite Turkey Chili with Beans
- Smokey Beef & Butternut Squash Chili
Second, I recommend a 3.5-quart casserole crockpot like this digital one or this manual one.
In the podcast, I share exactly which instant pot and have and why I picked the one with the air fryer lid. You might want to listen if you are shopping for an Instant Pot.
I have the Instant Pot Duo with Air Fryer Lid. You can get it online here at Wal-Mart or on amazon. A few of the recipes that I almost always make in the Instant Pot are below.
- Southern Style Instant Pot Collard Greens
- Southern Style Peas (Fresh or Frozen) in the Instant Pot
- Cajun Red Beans & Sausage
Breville Smart Oven
I gave my daughter this Breville Smart Oven Pro and bought myself this compact Breville Smart Oven. I miss my old one, as it had more features and was more user friendly. Here are some of the ways that I use the smart oven.
- toast, bagels, biscuits & breakfast breads
- baked potatoes
- sweet baked potatoes
- frozen pizza
- reheating meat
Aroma Rice Cooker
The aroma housewares rice cooker is not something that I use every day; however, I use it a ton during the Fall. It is perfect for making big-batch rice to serve with any of the following. You can get the rice cooker here on amazon. I think it is sold at Costco as well.
If you’ve been wondering what to buy, how to use it, or if any of these appliances is worth the money, I’ll share all the details on the podcast. Listen on this page, Apple podcasts, or your favorite podcast platform. As always, thanks for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
