My Paleo Kitchen Tools: My Wish List

This week I’ll cover the kitchen tools that will make Paleo cooking & baking easier, but that I haven’t purchased yet. I plan on purchasing all of these at some point. I think they’d be a great addition to any Paleo kitchen because

  • They’ll save time
  • They help get more variety out of the same foods you’re already eating

So without further ado, here is my wish list (*ahem*, I expect to be receiving these for Christmas, people):

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Odds n’ Ends

This week I talk about the random little tools with multiple applications that just make life a little more convenient and can make meals more fun.

I keep all of these items in one drawer in my kitchen for fast & easy access:

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Handy Dandy Food Savers

This week I’ll cover the little gadgets that help stretch your food dollars further. These make it easy to get every last bit out of your produce and bottled items.

  • Mini Spatulas
  • Produce Keeper
  • Bag Clips
  • Citrus Reamer

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Big Ticket Items

This week I’ll cover the more expensive items I have in my kitchen. These are worth investing in because

  • They’ll save you lots of time
  • You'll use them very often
  • They have many uses
  • They last a long time (and should have a long-term warranty to reflect that)

There are two tools I have, and I’m very, very happy to have them:

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Slow Cookers

This week I’ll cover the tools I use for slow cooking.

What is slow cooking? It’s when you cook meat at a low temperature for a long time – say 6 – 12 hours. This method of cooking is great for the tough but cheaper cuts of meat because it makes them very tender.

There are two tools I use for slow cooking:

  • Crock Pot
  • Dutch Oven

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Fermentation

This week I’ll cover the Fermentation tools I use.

  • Gallon glass jars
  • Quart glass jars
  • Flip top glass bottles
  • Ladle
  • Funnel

Never ferment in plastic  – always use non-reactive glass or ceramic containers.

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Storage Containers

This week I’ll cover the Storage Containers I use. I use the often because I like to have leftovers for fast meals on the go. Instead of using plastic Tupperware, I use:

  • Pyrex / Glass containers
  • Reused Glass Jars

I don’t store my food in plastic containers. Plastic has been shown to leach chemicals into the food touching it. Acidic foods like tomato sauce accelerate this process, too.

That’s why I only use Pyrex or glass containers when storing food in the fridge or packing food for on the go.

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Baking

This week I’ll cover the Baking Tools I use most often, in addition to the items I covered in last week’s Stovetop Cooking post <link>.

These items get frequent use in my kitchen, and they will in your kitchen if you cook often. You want to make sure they’re

  • Made out of safe, non-reactive materials
  • Durable
  • Comfortable to use
  • Priced so that you can quickly replace a piece if something gets ruined

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Stovetop Cooking

This week I’ll cover the Stovetop Cooking Tools I use most often, in addition to the items I covered in last week’s Everyday Items post.

These items get heavy use in my kitchen, and they will in your kitchen if you cook often. You want to make sure they’re

  • Made out of safe, non-reactive materials
  • Durable
  • Comfortable to use
  • Priced so that you can quickly replace a piece if something gets ruined

My Paleo Kitchen Tools: Everyday Items

To kick off the My Paleo Kitchen Tools Series, I’m going to look at the everyday basics everyone should have. Regardless of how often you cook, these items really are essential.

These items get the most use on a daily basis. You want to make sure they’re...

My Paleo Kitchen Tools Series

I’ve recently gotten a few questions about how to stock a kitchen with Paleo cooking tools, so I’m creating a series of blog posts to address the topic.

I'll teach you what to buy, what to avoid, and where to find it at a good price.
