The best small kitchen appliances I use in the kitchen. My favorite small kitchen electrics and gadgets.

If you’re new here and new to toxic free living, start with this post: Why I Made My Home Toxic Free + How I Did It! In that post I share everything you need to know about going toxic free, the resources I learned from, how I budgeted and slowly made the toxic free swaps, and a round up of all my toxic free posts linking to my favorite products (including this one!).

1. Vitamix 5200

I love this blender! Blends all of my smoothies, almond milk, soups and banana muffins perfectly. I use this every day, and is worth the investment for homemade almond milk alone.

2. Food Processor

I love using this to chop cauliflower rice, make my homemade almond butter and pecan butter, pesto, sauces, etc.

3. Immersion Blender

Can’t make homemade mayonnaise without my beloved immersion blender! Great for soups and to make my paleo banana pancakes too!

4. Instant Pot

I got this just to make bone broth, but love it for my beef stew and pot roast too!

5. Hand Mixer

My hand mixer gets used the most to make coconut whipped cream, but it’s also great for cookies and baked goods!

6. SpiralizerEasiest way to make zucchini noodles!

7. Stand Mixer

This gets used the most to make cookies, which I don’t do very often. This is now stored in the garage, but I still use it from time to time.

8. Slow Cooker

Love my slow cooker for all my slow cooker recipes!

9. Vacuum Sealer

Great way to safely and effectively seal off meat I buy in bulk from butcherbox and produce too

10. Vacuum Sealer Mason Jar Attachment

If you want to make salads in a mason jar and have them last, these mason jar vacuum sealer attachments are amazing!

11. Waffle Maker

The best way to make toaster size waffles. I love making a big batch of my paleo waffles and freezing them to quickly reheat on busy mornings. Sadly, this is coated with a nonstick coating, which is toxic. I haven’t been able to find a better solution, but will update if I do!

12. French Press Coffee Maker


I don’t drink coffee, but Shawn does. He says this is the boldest way to brew it. I love how small and compact it is so it doesn’t take up precious counter space!
