Shop Tools

I am often asked about what tools I use in my kitchen. Here are some of my favorites.

Dough Scraper

I use this simple scraper constantly when I am baking bread. The round side scrapes the mixing bowl clean and the flat side scrapes dough and flour off the counter. Ateco Scraper, Single Bowl, White

Food Processor

One of the most essential pieces of equipment in my kitchen is my food processor. I use it every day. Mine usually has a batch of bread dough rising in it! Cuisinart DFP-14BCNY 14-Cup Food Processor, Brushed Stainless Steel – Silver

Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer

The quintessential kitchen appliance after a stove, an oven, and a food processor, this is an indispensable item in a kitchen if you love to cook and bake. KitchenAid KP26M1XNP 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series Bowl-Lift Stand Mixer – Nickel Pearl


I have an older model of this appliance that I have used for many years. Much more powerful than a blender, this will easily make smoothies from frozen fruits and whole vegetables, crush ice, puree, blend soups, sauces, and dips. It even has an optional container that will grind whole grains into flour. I bought one for each of my kids because I couldn’t imagine not having it in a kitchen. Vitamix 5300 Blender, Black
