Below are some of my favorite equipment that I have in my home and use nearly every day. Each item makes my day and my life that much easier in the kitchen.

Once you’ve seen what’s around my kitchen, I’ve also included a link to Reviews.com for their top-tested picks for cookware sets! I love that they’ve tested so many different brands in several price ranges; so there’s something for every budget!

At this time I am not receiving any commission or any type of payment for my recommendations. All opinions are my own! I have provided some product links for you to see examples and prices, but I am not being reimbursed for any purchases you make.

CAST IRON – nothing beats the heat retention and durability of cast iron. I’ve literally got a hodge podge of other pots (think sauce pans and stock pots) and cast iron pans and a cast dutch oven, too. Again, Goodwill and flea markets are your best best for these kinds of finds!

I’ll continue to add to this list as I remember things, but don’t forget to check out the article from Reviews.com, too so you can find your next cookware set!
