Years ago, I did a major overhaul in my kitchen,
replacing most of my tools for safer, more durable options for my family.
This wasn’t a cheap or quick change.
In fact, it took over a year to research, save money, and shop around.
Now several years later, I can say we made some great, long-lasting choices.
Many of these are lifetime investments, and we couldn’t be happier.
As I discarded teflon, nylon, metal, and most of the plastic,
here are the replacement items we love using now.
And we can honestly recommend these products for your kitchen, as well!
Not only do I think everyone deserves safer products,
but allergy moms especially need long-lasting, durable tools.
We all know how much time we spend in the kitchen cooking and baking safe food!

Thank you! Now let’s get to the fun, shall we?
I own both the 3 and 6 quarts and use them for so many things!
These are very versatile as they move from stove top to oven.
I use the large cast iron shown for frying burger, bacon, sausage, and more.
This doesn’t have boiling water going through plastic like a coffee pot does.
My husband makes his coffee in this, but I make cold brew coffee in it.
Hubby and I love having temperature settings for heating water.
He says this is important for making the best pour over coffee.
I love all the various settings for the best hot tea based on green, black, herbal, etc.
And my kids can easily and safely heat water for oatmeal and hot cocoa.
This tool certainly gets a workout at our house, no stove required.
We tried a few brands before settling on this one. It was the best.
I started collecting several of these beautiful colors.
Both the coffee and tea cups are so pretty. I also give these out as gifts often.
I also use the small containers for food storage.
I cannot say enough about these baking pans.
NOTHING sticks, easiest clean-up.
We’ve use this to make our famous waffles made with water!
Oh mama, I’ve had my mixer for maybe 15 years?
I don’t regret buying white, but boy is this teal one cute!
I really didn’t want to pay this much for a blender
But I tried ALL the others with no luck.
Ninja, too tall. Kitchen Aid, too weak. Breville, too weak.
and even my morning celery juice with no chunks.
I would never give this up, now.
If you’re looking for a more affordable alternative to Norwex like I was, check out e-cloth!
I hope these suggestions are helpful to you.
We spend too much time in the kitchen not to have good tools that we love.
And I certainly love all these!
What other safe, durable tools do you use in your kitchen?
Leave a comment and let us know.
We would love to learn more!
