Vegan MoFo Day 3: Must have kitchen tools

I didn't cook anything fun today (still have lots of leftovers from yesterday). Instead, I'm going to talk about some of my essential kitchen tools.

 My number one favorite object is my garlic press. I got it from Pampered Chef years ago and I use it every single time I cook. You can put a whole clove in there without even peeling it or anything and it all comes out perfectly. Unfortunately, we lost ours and can't find it anywhere! We have some other kind sitting in our drawer, but it sucks. Doesn't press a thing. I hope I find my beloved soon.



I got the Misto® oil sprayer in the beginning of September and it quickly became one of my most used kitchen tools. I love this thing because it cuts down on waste and cost. Just $10 and I won't have to buy another aerosol sprayer for years. Another benefit: no propellants. It's just straight up oil in there. No chemicals or anything. Yea! It holds about 1/3 cup of oil and that lasts for quite a while. All you need to do is pump it a couple of times before using it.


Cast Iron pans are also fabulous. Once it's well seasoned, it's more nonstick than a nonstick pan. I absolutely love it. I use it for practically everything. And mine isn't even fully seasoned yet. This is pretty much constantly on my stove top.

  2. I second the cast iron pan. But I was so disappointed in the Misto...I had mine for about a month when it seemed to clog up and stop spraying, and I could never get it to work again.

  4. Agree! I love my Pampered Chef garlic press! And I have small collection of cast iron skillets. I hate to use anything else.
