14 Great Gadgets for a Healthy Kitchen

You want to eat healthy, so you need the right tools to cook healthy. Wondering where to start? Here are some of the gadgets that I swear by!

Dexas Flexi Cutting Boards: These colorful cutting boards are a must-have for any cook. They are flexible, made of BPA-free material plastic and are color coded to prevent cross-contamination.

J.A. Henckels Santoko Knife: Every cook has a favorite knife. Even if you have a stocked knife block, you go for the same one everytime. The Santoko is mine. It’s comfotable to hold and ideal for preparing meat, fish, and vegetables.

Panini Press: They are not just for sandwiches. The panini press is great for grilling chicken, fish and meat. The nonstick surface needs little or no oil and is easy to clean up.

Brita Water Dispenser: Filtering your tap water has many advantages. It reduces common impurities, makes water taste better, and helps the environment by using less plastic. Brita has many different products to fit your lifestyle.

Eggs Two-Ways: This superfood is delicious any way you cook them. The Fusionbrands Poach Pods are flexible, nonstick pods that make poaching eggs at home easy. Egg rings are another tool to add a professional touch to your home-cooked egg dishes.

Wooden Salt Box: These beautiful boxes keep your cooking salt fresh and dry. The swivel lid allows for easy, one-handed access.

Spoonulas and Mini Spoonulas: Part spatula, part spoon, spoonulas are handy tools for a variety of tasks from mixing and folding to serving and scaping.

Nonstick pans: An essential part of any kitchen. I love Rachel Ray’s 10-Piece Cookware Set. Remember to always hand wash your nonstick pans, putting them in the dishwasher ruins the nonstick surface.

Silicone Spatula: Using a metal spatula on your nonstick pans is a sure way to ruin them. Silicone spatulas are flexible, heat-resistance and won’t scratch your nonstick pans.

Kitchen Scissors:
All cooks need a good pair of kitchen shears. From trimming poultry to opening a package of food, you can use these for everything. I recommend getting a “come-apart”pair- they are easier to clean.

Microplane Zester: Microplane makes the best grating utensils. The zester/grater is perfect for grating hard cheeses, like parmesan and citrus zesting.

Vinturi Wine Aerator: Yes, in my opinion, red wine is part of a healthy kitchen. The Vinturi aerator has an amazing effect on wine- better bouquet, enhanced flavors, and a smoother finish.

Kuhn Rikon Pepper Grinder: To get the most aroma from spices, it is best to grind them fresh. These ceramic grinders work great for all herbs and spices and have an adjustable wheel for fine to course grinds.

Misto Oil Sprayer: This top-selling kitchen accessory is designed for the health-conscious cook. It adds flavor with adding too much oil. Perfect for grilling, sauteeing, baking, and roasting. It is non-aerosol, so it is good for your health and the environment.
