The kitchen is our favourite room in the home, and it’s much more enjoyable to prepare good food, and hang out with loved ones without a lot of  “stuff” crowding your space. We don’t need much, but these are the appliances we can’t live without.

BLENDTEC BLENDER You may not realize that you need this appliance, but you do. You really, really do. Fully automatic (once you add ingredients) making smooth drinks, hot soups and cool ice creams in just seconds.

CUISINART STEAM TOASTER OVEN Our search is over- we finally found a great quality, high functioning toaster oven WITHOUT a toxic non-stick lining, hooray!  It’s a countertop convection oven with full steaming capability (steam heat cuts through cooking time as much as 40%), and your food retains valuable nutrients, vitamins and minerals, as well as moisture and freshness.

NATUREMILL Make your own nutrient dense compost fertilizer from your own food waste and table scraps. The Ultra is automatic, energy efficient, and emits no trashy odours. You can tuck it away in cabinet, but we like to leave it out on display.

OMEGA JUICER Not just a juicer, but one of my daughter’s favourite activities…win, win!

CUISINART FOOD PROCESSOR Used daily…multiple times. Would say that hummus is made the most!

VITACLAY A slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and yogurt maker all in one! It’s made from unglazed Zisha clay (so no plastic, chems, aluminum or lead touches your food!) and it preserves your food’s nutrients, enzymes, and vitamins too.

CAPRESSO GLASS KETTLE This electric glass kettle with a stainless heating element is highly efficient, and is safer to drink from, and much more beautiful, than plastic options.

BLENDTEC TWISTER JAR I love this jar for my Blendtec!! Homemade salad dressings, hummus, nut and seed butters in under a minute.

EXCALIBUR DEHYDRATOR With this dehydrator, you can get fruit and kale chips in no time! A fun and healthy idea for any party menu.
