You know that we love to cook healthy, easy meals. There are a couple of Kitchen Gadgets we added to our kitchen that I have wanted for awhile. Like the Kitchen Aid attachment to make vegetable noodles. And there are things that I have wanted to try out to see if we would use it or could replace other kitchen gadgets we had. Like an Air Fryer! I was thrilled when I found so many great kitchen gadgets and small kitchen appliances for really great prices. Made it easier to pull the trigger.
I found all of the kitchen gadgets on eBay! If you are new to eBay it is basically another shopping resource, you do not have to bid on all their items. Actually everything I bought on the spot and it shipped to me in a couple days. Very easy. Even though this is a sponsored post I bought everything on my own and HIGHLY suggest you checking eBay before making any home purchases, especially for kitchen gadgets and appliances.

I finished my knife set! I had slowly been adding a knife here and there. Well actually I bought one knife and we used that one for most everything along with some older knives we had. I checked eBay for the rest of the knives. SO glad I did. Because I found them for half the price of what I was seeing other places! One of the knives was previously owned, but it came in perfect condition. Below are the knives we have and recommend.
Wusthof Dreizack Gourmet Steak Knives I bought on eBay for $30 and have seen them for over $100
Wusthof Grand Prix II 8″ bread knife serrated I bought on eBay for $38 and have seen them for over $80 * This bread knife is the BEST bread knife I have ever used!!
Wusthof Gourmet Cook’s Knife 6 in Chefs Knife I bought on eBay for $38 and have seen them for over $60
Wusthof Classic 8-Inch Chef’s Knife I bought on eBay for $80 and have seen them for over $100
*Reminder to sharpen knives often and to not wash in the dishwasher.

We have a Kitchen Aid mixer that we use several times a week. I have always wanted the Spiralizer attachment to spiralize our veggies. I have bought small kitchen gadgets before (that broke) to spiralize sweet potatoes. It just didn’t occur to me to get the attachment or I thought they were too expensive. NOPE. Totally worth the money! And we use this often. Typically I serialize several veggies at once for the week. These veggie replace pasta for us.
KitchenAid Spiralizer Peel Core Slice Attachment Fit all Stand Mixers $50 I have seen over $70
Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer I have had mine, but recommend checking eBay first if you are in the market

This was kind-of a give it a shot purchase. We do not own a microwave for several reasons. So when I heard about the Air Fryer, I was very intrigued. Not only can it cook food quickly, it is also a healthy way to cook food! With an air fryer you do not use any oil. The air circulates at a high temperature quickly! I am still playing with it, but so far am very happy! I cooked the Frozen Trader Joe’s Pot Stickers in about 8 minutes, with no oil! And no heating up a pan or making it dirty. The Air Fryer is actually really easy to clean. I also made stuffed bell peppers in 15 minutes! They were perfectly cooked. Many of you say you love to cook salmon and broccoli in the Air Fryer. You can even cook brownies. I could go on. But I will do a separate blog post once I use it more.
GoWISE USA 5.8 Qt Electric Air Fryer XL I did buy it refurbished for under $50 where it sells brand new for over $80
*The reason I bought this Air Fryer was I researched what was the best Air Fryer and read a lot of reviews. Also wanted to do the bigger size to cook full meals for my family of five.
If you are wondering where I keep that big Air Fryer 😂 in a small kitchen. It actually fits inside our built-in kitchen banquette. But I have been using it a lot lately so have it out on our tea-cart.

I just shared that I upgraded to an 8 qt Instant Pot, you can sauté the meat and do everything in one pot! My plan was to upgrade to this Instant Pot from my Pressure Cooker that only had one setting so that I could get rid of my crockpot. But so many of you said that you don’t like using the Instant Pot for a crockpot. Well sisters- it is because you need to use a different lid on your Instant Pot! Take off the regular “pressure cooker” lid and use an Instant Pot Crock Pot Lid! That way you can use your instant pot as a crock pot too!
Instant Pot/ Pressure Cooker/ Crock Pot in one
Instant Pot 8 qt (I love the 8 qt for my family of 5)
Instant Pot Crock Pot Lid (make sure to buy the right lid for the Instant Pot you have)
Slow Cook Tip on Instant Pot- Low on an insta-pot equals warm. Medium equals low. High equals slow cook temperature (like you are used to on a low setting for a crockpot/slow cooker)
What are your favorite kitchen gadgets or small kitchen appliances that are a must-have? If you are in the market for any of these items or something else always check eBay! I always do before making a purchase.
