What’s Gaby Cooking Master List

It’s here! The What’s Gaby Cooking Master List! Over the last year or so I have been collecting all the questions I get on a regular basis – from insta, from the blog, from meeting you guys in person, from our secret FB group, from emails… you name it! I’ve been writing them down and now everything lives in one place!

The WGC Master List ONLY includes products that I use on pretty much a daily basis. Things that live on my kitchen counters because I can’t bare to put them away – god forbid I should have to walk to the pantry. Things that I travel with every single time I get on a plane because they make my life better. Things that really stand out. NOTHING is sponsored, just 1000% products that I know are epic and you need in your life! I’ll be adding to this every time something new comes up so if something is missing, just shout it out in the comments below!

Beauty Products

Electronics / Tech Gear (written by Thomas) 

  • Sonos Arc (SoundBar) – The latest and greatest when it comes to soundbars. We are setting this beauty up with our main TV. The new Sonos Arc delivers dolby atmos (theater quality) sound. One of the best parts about this soundbar is that it is actually not ugly. We are pairing this soundbar with the Sonos sonance in ceiling speakers (2 for the rear) and our Sonos sub woofer that we have had for the last couple of years. The rear speakers are powered by the Sonos amp. Now when I watch the Lakers or Dodgers, I will really feel like I am at the game. You know Gaby is stoked about this. If you are looking to upgrade past your television speakers, this would be where I would begin. I would start with the soundbar. Then I would add the Sonos Sub. The last elements I would add would be two rear speakers and an amp to complete the full surround sound. (link on amazon if you prefer)
  • Sonos Amp – Our Sonos amps are used to power all our in ceiling speakers and outdoor speakers. Each amp can power up to 4 different speakers and creates its own “zone”. We have an amp powering our 2 rear speakers in the TV room, the kitchen/bar zone, the pool zone, and the patio zone. (amazon link)
  • Sonos Sub – The sub we have had for several years now. It was originally paired with the Sonos playbar and now we are planning to pair it with the Sonos arc to get that full Dolby Atmos sound for Gaby when she watched Game of Thrones and or Emily in Pairs. (linked on amazon too if you prefer)
  • In-Ceiling Speakers – The in ceiling speakers are a collaboration Sonos does with Sonance (a different speaker company that makes architectural speakers). The cool thing about these speakers is that they are the only ones on the market that can be tuned using Sonos true play. We have these speakers in the bar/kitchen area and the TV room. (linked on amazon)
  • Sonos Five – The Sonos five is the big speaker on the block for Sonos. Its a desktop speaker that has killer sound. We will be having this speaker sit in our bar area so gaby can listen to taylor swift in hi fidelity while having an aperol spritz. Also, the new Sonos five looks awesome, so its not like you have an ugly looking speaker sitting out in your room. It’s a win win. (amazon link)
  • Sonos One – The Sonos one, formerly know as the play one is what we are going to be using in our dining room. We are pairing two of these play ones to create ambient vibes. We have had the play ones for several years now, as this was our very first Sonos purcahse like 6 years ago. I think the coolest thing about Sonos is the ability to build up a system over time. Eventually we will be adding in ceiling speakers to the dining room, however to save some money we decided we will use the speakers we have for this area. (amazon link)
  • Sonos Move – The Sonos move is basically my wing man. I take with me where ever I go. Its the first Sonos product that is bluetooth enabled so it lets you enjoy great sounding music on the move. If I were just starting to build out my Sonos system today, this would be the speaker I start with. (amazon link)
  • External Charger – never leave home without it!! It can charge your phone at least 5 times before you need to recharge it
  • Noise Canceling Headphones – my go-to choice for headphones for all plane rides.

Lululemon Pieces

  • Fav style of Lululemon leggings part 1 – better for high intensity workouts and they really keep things tight!
  • Fav style of Lululemon leggings part 2 – better for yoga / lounging. SUPER STRETCHY
  • Y-back tank top from Lululemon
  • Boyfriend style T-shirt that I always wear and tie up at my waist.

    Great list! I’d love to know where to buy your red handled, wet, knife sharpener.

    thanks,
    Judy

  23. Johanna Belleman

    Good Morning. Love your Master List. FYI: The garlic press is on Amazon for $39 and Sur La Table is $45 and backordered until February. Also, the knife sharpener

    Special Request for your upcoming book tour. Have you ever or would you ever consider coming to Wilmington, NC? Our city is growing and I know you would get a huge following. Fanny Slater, a chef with Foodnetwork (she won something on Rachel Ray’s show) actually lives here. If you would come on the weekend you could go to the beach! We have an international airport (flyilm.com) and we’re a 2 hour drive from Raleigh.

    As they say on some radio shows “love your show babe.” Jody Belleman

  24. Johanna Belleman

    Hi. Have you ever considered doing a “section” on CONVECTION OVEN baking? (P.S. Thanks for the knife sharpener info!)

  25. Lani

    Hi Gaby! Love your style! Can you share the name of the black backpack you frequently wear?
    Thanks 🙂

  26. Lj

    Can you add the silver spoon and glass container you used to make the margaritas?! Thanks!

  27. Catherine Casselberry

    What about those two matching chairs in your house? They are like a brown leather?

    Thanks!

    • Gaby

      I don’t – I make bread from scratch when I make it! There’s a tutorial on my youtube page!

  28. Mary Jane Mitchell

    Have you decided on a stove/range for the new kitchen?

  29. Peggy

    I know you make healthy smoothies but I can’t tolerate drinking cold ones and dislike them. I need to chew. Do you take any vitamin supplements?

  30. Ali

    Can you share again the brand of your adorable matching sweatsuits?? I’ve looked and looked and can’t find it! Thanks!

  31. Laura

    Hi there! Where is your wood handled mesh skimmer from? (The one you used while making gnocchi on 3/30) Also – where are your white fruit bowls on your island from?

    Thank you so much!!!

    • Lashelle Rice

      Love your master list! Thank you!
      FYI I really like the Oxo pepper grinder.

  32. Jennifer LeBold

    Hi Gaby,
    Thank you for creating this Master List, it’s everything and more! With that being said, I have a question in regards to the beauty products you use. I am all about the dewy skin:) Seeing these products made me very happy! I was wondering, do you wear the Saie Glowy Super Gel over top of the Lune & Aster CC Moisturizer?

    Also, congratulations to you and Thomas in the new house! I love watching your Instagram stories:)

  33. Rosemary Hopkins

    I got a peppermill from a guy in Mobile,Alabama that Sara Moulton uses. It it is a special made out of one piece of wood and it takes a year to make. His name is Pinky Martin. Collectors piece for chef cooks especially. It is my very best prize that I take care of but beautiful.

  34. Tere

    You need to please expand your fashion list! I love all your tie dye and your leopard print swimsuit. Do have links for those? Thank you!

  35. Katy

    Hi Gaby! What makes the Veggie Knife so good for vegetables versus using any other knife? Thank you!

    • Gaby

      It’s really personal preference. I like the shape of it and the weight! But a chefs knife is amazing too

  36. Julia

    Love watching your IG lives and everything on this list! I’m not a very good cook but you make it look so easy and way less intimidating!

    Where are your white fruit bowls on your island from?

    • Gaby

      Those are from Anthroplogie a few years ago (maybe 8) unsure if they are still in production

  37. Sarah

    Hi Gaby!
    On your live tonight you mentioned your lulu leggings were on the master list but I don’t see them. I heard you say they were new and I would love to check them out! Can’t wait for your cookbook!!!!!

    Thank you for all you do!!

  38. Chantal

    This is amazing, I want everything on here . Its such a shame that the Pottery Barn links don’t work to order to the UK or else I’d be all over it. Thanks so much for such a great master list
