We’re a few weeks out from the official start of summer so let’s talk about some of my Must Have Summer Kitchen Tools!
Immersion Blender – Great for quickly blending sauces and dressings like this Basil Vinaigrette.
Cocktail Strainer – This kitchen tool comes in very handy for all the summer cocktail making like this Blueberry Mint Bourbon Lemonade.
Cocktail Mixing Glass – The thick base and beaker like spout make this mixing glass especially great.
Stainless Steel Mixing Spoon – A cocktail making essential.
Microplane – Great for everything from zesting limes for Salted Key Lime Pie to grating parmesan over Creamy Lemon Cacio e Pepe.
Glass Carafe – Serve your Strawberry Basil Lemonade in these at your next summer backyard BBQ.
Glass Straws – I use these to drink my Iced Matcha Lattes and morning smoothies.
Blender – Great for everything from margaritas to acai bowls and even gazpacho.
Salad Spinner – Makes washing lettuce for your Chicken Shawarma Bowls a breeze.
BBQ Tool Set – Comes with all the things you need for grilling burgers, ribs, and steak this summer.
Ice Cream Maker – I mean, what beats homemade ice cream?! This is the ice cream maker I use to make this Strawberry Cheesecake Ice Cream.
Glass Tupperware – Say goodbye to all of your other Tupperware these are magical. No matter the size of the container, it’s the same size lid, so you can always find one without a problem.
Panini Press – My favorite way to make a quick grilled cheese or panini! This multi-use machine opens flat to become an indoor grill, and you can buy the waffle attachment to make waffles for breakfast with it!
Pizza Stone – A must for making pizzas at home in your oven.
Meat Thermometer – Super important for perfectly grilled steak, poultry or fish.
Citrus Press – The easiest way to make margaritas!
