The holidays are coming up, and we are betting you’ve already gotten some Friendsgiving invites and are dusting off the snowmen and wreaths for the house decorations. With the holidays inevitably comes the cooking, cleaning, and entertaining, but along with all those extra dishes, we’ve got some recommendations for tools and gadgets that might actually save your life this year(and the years to come). The team came up with their list of can’t-live-without kitchen items — and it’s a really good one. Read on to fall in love with your next kitchen gadget or two. These are the kitchen tools we can’t live without.
Take Nicole’s Advice on Kitchen Tools She Can’t Live Without
There are so many features to love with this kitchen star. First and foremost, it’s convenience. It can be used remotely from smoker to grill to oven— from your phone! You can choose the protein, internal temperature and/or doneness based on the cooking method you prefer. It is a true assist specifically when smoking low & slow or reverse seared on the grill. Nicole’s favorite part is seeing the temp while cooking without having to disrupt the cooking cycle — so it allows her to get the perfect cook every single time.
This bad boy is used regularly at Nicole’s household(especially one-pot meals.) The non-stick is great for braising vegetables and meat, but deep enough to also create delicious soups, chili and pastas dishes. Plus it is DISHWASHER SAFE. Whoa.
Nicole uses this bucket to compost while living in the city. There are two great perks to this bucket— the odorless(charcoal filters) and the compact size. There is a bi-weekly pick up service, called Healthy Soil Compost, which provides a bucket, but it’s too large and stinky to keep in the house. This is great for daily use and can easily fit on your counter while cooking, but discreetly store under the sink when you are not actively using it.

Jessi’s Go-to Gadgets
She uses this weekly and can’t live without it for one-pot meals, soups and stews.
Jessi got this at the grocery store for a couple bucks and now uses it almost every day. It’s quick, easy, and gets every ounce of juice out of your lemons and limes.
Jessi’s favorite way to drink coffee is from a French Press, she says it is also great for watching your caffeine intake since you can make as much as you allocate, and then clean it and put it away for the day. It’s also great for loose leaf teas as well!
