As I was going through my kitchen organization-40 Bags in 40 Days-I thought it would be useful to do a post on the things I have loved and were the most useful to me in my much used kitchen. I’ve been a mom for 26 years and regularly feed many hungry mouths from sunup to sundown. My kitchen works hard. I’ve had some things forever, and other things it took me awhile to find what really worked and lasted.
My favorite frying pans are these. They come in a set of three and are the best and longest lasting of any I’ve owned.
I’ve ownedthis setfor decades and it’s in tip top shape.
I finally got rid of my old rusty muffin tins and bought these silicone muffin trays and I LOVE them. Nothing sticks to these, and I don’t have to ever buy the paper liners.
Thick microfiber cloths for cleaning. I use these constantly for cleaning up spills, wiping down counters and all general cleaning tasks. They are thick and wash up well.
If you have a drawer for spices, these drawer linersare a great inexpensive way to keep them in place. They can be cut to size also for different drawer lengths.
These stick on clear containers are perfect for keeping those little things easily accessible on cabinet doors. I have them in several cabinets and use them daily.
We usethis sandwich press weekly, if not daily. The sandwiches come out evenly toasted and delicious. Ham and cheese are our favorite. The kids use this all the time too-easier than the stovetop for kids!
Thisset of fourmixing bowls have been with me a long time. I use them not just for mixing but for servings salads also.
Something about serving kids food in a compartmentalized plate seems to make them eat more! I’ve had these for two decades and we still use them.
And last but not least. I can NOT say enough about this vacuum and mop combination! It is one of those inventions that I think I’ve prayed for. It vacuums at the same time it mops with a microfiber rotating spinner and you can even roll it right over rugs-there is a special button for that-so you can clean all those entry rugs at the same time. I use a capful of Mrs. Meyers cleaner with hot water. This does not leave a sticky film. Let me show you something:
The first time I used this mop I went over and over my floors and they were this dirty multiple times! It was disgusting. They are now clean and I whip that mop out maybe twice a week instead of first sweeping and then going back over and mopping this does it all.
What I use for my floors-Mrs. Meyers Honeysuckle.
