You’ll find these kitchen tools useful (I've included affiliate links to the products I use at home):

  • Ceramic knife – I LOVE my knife set, they stay super sharp and are easy to store with the blade cover.
  • Pitcher – I purchased a plastic pitcher at Target years ago and I’m still using it to this day, it also doubles as a flower vase!
  • Citrus juicer – I use this for everything and it gets every last drop of citrus juice with minimal effort.
