Manual Vintage Kitchen Tools We All Need

Today it’s all about manual vintage kitchen tools we all need. I wrote a post a week or two ago about kitchen tools and I had so many comments that I just had to add some additional manual vintage kitchen tools today. Several of you sent me emails about these and I just had to post them, it’s so fun to talk about things we still use in the kitchen. We laughed because some people call these items vintage tools, but they are what we grew up using in the kitchen. It’s how we roll, right? If we cook from scratch we have all of these, just admit it.

15 Vintage Kitchen Tools We All Must Have

If we lose power we will need at least these 15 vintage kitchen tools at the very least. I love going to antique stores and checking out items that I consider very useful if we have zero electricity. Actually, even if we don’t lose power I still use these today in my kitchen. Plus, I think some of these items will bring back a few good memories when grandma was in the kitchen cooking or baking. I can still picture my great-grandma making Lefse, one of our favorite Norwegian family treats made with leftover mashed potatoes.

How To Fry Food And Love The Cleanup

Do you love to fry food but hate the cleanup? Today it’s all about how to fry food and love the cleanup. Here’s the deal, I received an email from Zyliss, you know the company we all have a lettuce knife made by? Well, they asked me if I would test one of their new cooking pans. So of course, I agreed, because I love my lettuce knife, my soup ladle, pancake turner and slotted spoon made by the company. Remember, I used to work at a kitchen store and they sold all the top notch products, so I have all of them. They last for years. I’m sharing my opinion on the pan, but let’s be real here, yes I was given this awesome fry pan with a glass lid for writing a review. I can tell you right now, I love this pan, and I’ll tell you why as part of today’s post. Check out the giveaway below too. I love it so much I want to give one of my readers a pan just like the one I was given. P.S. You can enter every day until it ends.
