When it comes to cooking, Bethenny is no amateur. As a natural food chef, it’s safe to say she knows her way around the kitchen, and today, she is opening her cabinets and sharing her favorite kitchen gadgets with us.
When opening her favorite bottle of Forever Young Wine, Bethenny likes to use a few different tools spanning the high-low price range.
First, a special mention goes to this magical tool from Ikea, which Bethenny says literally takes the top off anything.
At the lower end (but magical in its effectiveness), The Rabbit Wine Corkscrew ($39.00) which opens a bottle in 3 seconds flat with a single pull. Moderately priced is The Rabbit Automatic Electric Corkscrew ($49.95) that can open 30 wine bottles on a single charge, or The Coravin Pivot ($99.00) at the upper end which preserves the flavor, color and aroma of your wine for up to 4 weeks.
Cookware is something that can last a lifetime, which is why Bethenny chooses Skinnygirl Cookware because it’s high quality, durable and health-focused.
Another option that Bethenny likes at a bit of a higher price point is Calphalon Cookware that can be found at Williams Sonoma and elsewhere – she likes it for its heavy duty triple-layer nonstick surface.
Ikea is full of treasures, and Bethenny loves their dinnerware sets which contain an 18 piece set for an extremely remarkable price that – and they are microwave and dishwasher safe.
When enjoying a fresh bowl of pasta, CB2 Drift Reactive Pasta Bowl ($11.95) fits the bill – hand-pressed and finished with organic edges and oven safe!
If you are looking to really WOW your guests at your next dinner party then you need the Bernardaud Kintsugi-Sarkis 24k Gold Dinner Collection. It will cost you a pretty penny, but it was inspired by the 16th-century Japanese art, Kintsugi, which is a unique art form that makes visible repairs on ceramic that creates a jaw-dropping design.
On the more affordable end, Bethenny likes the Oster Pro Blender, which offers pre-programmed settings including three food modes (smoothie, shake and food chop) and three texture settings (thin, medium, and thick) so you can get the perfect texture you’re looking for every time at a reasonable price.
A moderately-priced option is a great blender from Kitchen Aid that can crush ice in less than 30 seconds and has a unique asymmetric blade that works at four distinct angles to pull items into the center for ultimate blending.
If you are looking for a professional blender (and we mean one that will blend literally anything) then Bethenny recommends the Vitamix Professional Series which is great for family meals or entertaining. It’s definitely an investment, though.
The Keurig K-Mini Single Serve is excellent for someone who lives alone or is looking to save on counter space. The next step up is the Keurig K-Elite Coffee Maker that even has an “iced” option with a large 75oz water reservoir.
If you are more of an espresso drinker, Bethenny suggests the Nespresso Vertuo Plus which is perfect for a cappuccino or latte.
No matter which you choose, high or low, each gadget will be a perfect addition to your kitchen.
