Hi there! If you’re on this page, then I know you’re always on the hunt for products like me that are worth your time and will totally make life easier! At least as easy as it can be! 🙂
This is a list of my all time-favorite products that I KNOW works and have helped me whip up some delicious recipes in the kitchen!
These are my honest opinions and I’ll give my two cents if I think the VALUE is there. The best items are those that are practical and gets the job done! That’s my finance background coming in!
Ok, so seriously I tell my husband all the time that if we could only save one item from the kitchen if something were to happen, this would be it! If I can carry it lol….
I LOVE this mixer! Like all my baking happens using this tool! This mixer is definitely worth the price as it comes with THREE different attachments (beater, hook, and paddle), has like 10 speeds to tackle any recipe, and is SUPER EASY TO USE!
I think the 4.5 quart is already large enough (no need to spend money on the larger version) as it can make 8 dozen cookies in a single batch.
Instant Pots are sooo convenient! I recommend this one as I have made some quick weeknight recipes using this baby!
So true story, I actually was gifted a knock-off brand of the Instant Pot and it definitely doesn’t work as good as the real thing. Like the steam doesn’t stay in the pot, so annoying!
Anyway, this one is the same one my grandma uses, and I love coming over and using her Instant Pot to cook for the family!
The pressure builds quick, the lid locks easily and securely, PLUS the quick recipe buttons makes it super simple to follow.

Ok, so I couldn’t resist here! I love coffee, and I couldn’t live without my Nespresso! That’s seriously some good coffee!
Now complete honesty, I actually have the Vertuo line (not Vertuo Plus), but I don’t think they make it anymore! However, the Vertuo line is awesome! Seriously after getting our Nespresso, I don’t think we went to Starbucks as much anymore!
This baby makes quality coffee with the rich foam and addicting aroma in the morning, that you can easily make your own mocha or latte that taste just as good as the coffee shops!
If you’ve seen our favorite Filipino Baked Salmon Recipe with Mayonnaise, you know our secret trick on getting our salmon super moist in the oven is to use a broiler pan!
By filling the broiler pan with water and cooking the fish on top, our fish is juicy, moist, and flakes easily. My number one tip on baking your fish like a pro each time!
This bread machine gets the job done! I think this is one of the more basic options without all that fancy widgets, but I love my bread machine!
This is the exact tool I used to make my Fluffy Bread-Machine Ube Bread Rolls with a Sugared Cream Cheese Frosting | No Kneading and Easy, and I get my rolls perfect each time!
This bread machine is definitely economical and is a great value item for the different kinds of bread it can make! The DOUGH setting is like my go-to setting for no kneading!
So those beautiful rosette designs I create on my Easy Rosette Ube Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream That is So Moist or the swirled whipped topping on my Classy Chocolate Mousse with Grand Marnier to Indulge In is from this amazing tool!
The value is definitely there with the amount of piping tips you get, the piping bags, and the offset spatula! My fave!
All conveniently kept in this tidy box, so nothing is loose! The 1M open star tip is my all-time favorite!
Full transparency here! So I actually have the Oster Electric Skillet Extra Deep, but I’m not sure if it was discontinued!
However, having a large electric skillet is a time save and this is one of the most popular electric skillets on Amazon with a 4.5 star rating!
The beauty of the electric skillet is that it makes it super easy to toss your ingredients together, especially when you’re making a pasta or fried rice. You have room to toss and maneuver without making a mess in your kitchen!
Our Filipino Style Spam Garlic Fried Rice Anyone Will Love is one of the most popular recipes and using the skillet is how I can easily toss and mix everything together super easy!
So this one is a bit of a splurge! I actually got my first All-Clad pan as a wedding present, as I know it can be a bit pricey!
However, this stainless steel pan is my absolute go-to for pan frying steaks or pork for a nice, browned exterior while still being juicy on the inside.
My Habanero Herbed Spicy Pork Chops Recipe for an Easy Dinner definitely makes use of this magical pan and I DON’T get dry pork. Hello juicy and succulent!
This food processor from Cuisinart seriously is a time-saver! I love just throwing my vegetables in and having it chopped all at one-time!
It also comes with three different blades and can shred cheese super quickly! Totally makes weeknight dinners a breeze!
Fun tip, this baby pumps our Fresh Mango Pico de Gallo Recipe for Your Tropical Snack in under 20 minutes!
I love my Ninja blender! I got this as a wedding gift and you definitely get your money’s worth!
I have made salsa, smoothies, and sauces in my blender and it has mixed and pureed each of these perfectly! Red Salsa for Tacos in Only 3 Easy Steps anyone?
Seriously, since the quality of the blades are soo good, it has no problem mixing those harder vegetables or fruits. Or even if you overload the ice….
Knives are important to cook with, and good quality knives definitely help!
Now I’m not a professional trained chef, but these knives are a great medium brand (like not super fancy and not basic either) as the knives stay sharp and have a great variety of options.
As an added benefit, there’s a built-in sharpener in case you do need to sharpen the knives! I have this exact model, and we’ve probably only had to sharpen our knives a handful of times in the last 5 years!
Using an APPLE SLICER is our secret trick on getting perfect, wedged cut fries that is totally restaurant quality!
If you’ve seen our Loaded Asian Fries Topped with Filipino Corned Beef and Creamy Sriracha, this easy tool is our go-to for beautiful wedge fries without all that chopping! Easy and inexpensive!
