These are some of my favorite products that I would recommend purchasing if you want to make things easier for yourself in the kitchen!  As a professional chef, I find all of them indispensable!

INSTANT POT

This is an all in one product for everything.  I use it almost daily for rice, cooking soups and stews, steaming and yogurt.  

VITAMIX BLENDER

I use this blender all the time for smoothies, dressings, soups, and even egg bases for quiches and frittatas.  One of my favorite things about this blender is that all pureed soups come out silky and smooth without the need for straining.  The blender is pricey, but in my opinion it's the best one around and well worth the cost.

SHUN CHEF'S KNIFE

This is an amazing knife that keeps its blade.  It has great weight and a good grip.  Be careful though, the blade is extremely sharp!

BENRINER MANDOLINE

This is the best mandoline and will help you achieve paper thin slices, if needed.  It's easy to use, light, inexpensive, and lasts forever.
