Le Creuset Dutch Oven: This is my go-to pot!! I mean, for how expensive it is, it should be the best pot ever, and IT IS! I use it to make stew, risotto, pasta, rice, beans, bread, queso and so much more!. It's like an all in one magic pot that browns beautifully, like a pan, but will hold a full meal. I know it is very expensive but save up, treat yourself, or ask your rich uncle for a gift. I promise you, you will have this cookware forever.
This pan is a MUST for any kitchen. It is virtually indestructible and literally gets better the more you use it. What's great about a cast iron pan is that retains heat. Meaning, great for oven cooking and even browning. For a great versatile size, I recommend the 9" Cast Iron pan or the 10.25" Cast Iron pan.
This is a great, cheap handy tool every kitchen should have. I have both a plastic scraper that is great to use to scrape the inside of mixing bowls. I also have a metal scraper that I use to cut the dough and scrape my workspace. So it's easy to use to make your baking more effective. Scale can be used on metal if necessary. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe.

When they get a bit dirty feel free to rinse clean or wipe with a damp cloth.
You can never have too many bowls in the kitchen. OXO Good Grips Mixing Bowls are my favorite kitchen bowls with a pouring spout to make cooking and baking that much easier. 3-Piece Set includes 1.5-quart, 3-quart and 5-quart Mixing Bowls. If you want them multicolored, click here! :)
When I first learned there was an Air Fryer & Pressure Cooker combo, OMG, my jaw dropped. I had to try it out. Let me tell you, this is the ultimate kitchen gadget for all types of cooks. It's easy to use and ups your cooking game immediately. I can now fry crispy kale chips and pressure cook a New York strip steak in ONE machine. I've tested out many Carl Schmidt Sohn cookware and I have NOT been disappointed.
A Kitchen Scale for measuring dry and wet ingredients is a MUST! Not only do you get a more accurate and delicious end result but some recipes only include grams and ounces not cups and tablespoons. If you bake and don't have a kitchen scale, I don't know you. Anyway, the Etekcity Food Scale is a great inexpensive scale that will definitely up your baking and cooking game. If you're looking for a quality scale (a little more expensive) I have two of the OXO Good Grips 11 lb Kitchen Scale.
Food Processor: Look, I know it is expensive but I highly recommend the Cuisinart DFP-14CNY Food Processor. I once bought a food processor half the price, used it once, and immediately wished I spend the money to get a better one. This food processor holds more, processes better, and lasts longer. Plus, having a good food processor makes cooking easier and more fun, I use mine almost every day! Just consider it, OK?

Joshua McFadden channels both farmer and chef, highlighting vegetables throughout their growing seasons. Each chapter begins with recipes featuring raw vegetables at the start of their season. As weeks progress, McFadden turns up the heat—grilling and steaming, then moving on to sautés, pan roasts, braises, and stews. It's one of those books that helps you undetstand and bring about flavor at its peak.
