Our Favorite Kitchen Tools

It would be easy to write about roasting pans, soup pots, and good knives, but you probably

already know about those and use them frequently. We wanted to tell you about our favorite lesser-known tools that you might want to make a slight investment in to make the most of your farm-fresh vegetables.


  1. Kitchen shears. We love these for quickly cutting greens, scallions, and herbs. KitchenAid makes good ones, and you can find them on Amazon in pretty much any color your heart desires for less than $10.

  2. A hand-held Veggetti. Veggetti makes a handheld spiralizer and a tabletop Veggetti Pro. We like to keep it simple with the handheld version, to make zucchini and squash noodles for faux-pasta and stir fry.

  3. Debbie Meyer Green Bags. These are reusable bags that keep fruits and veggies longer by protecting against ethylene gases that cause produce to ripen quickly in close quarters.

  4. Chef'n Vegetable and Herb Stripper. This little gadget makes it quick to strip the leaves off of the stalks of vegetables like kale and collards, and herbs like thyme and oregano.

  5. A grill pan. We grill greens on the regular during the summertime. Our go-to is to chop up Napa cabbage, or bok choy, sprinkle them with olive oil, sea salt, and crushed red pepper, and grill them alongside our protein. We've got this one: https://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-CSSW-428-Stainless-11-Inch-Silver/dp/B078GMZK5K/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=cuisinart+grill+pan&qid=1588938099&s=home-garden&sr=1-6
