In anticipation of my new recipe book, Keto In An Instant, I want to share with you a list of my Favorite Cooking Tools. This list includes gadgets, baking dishes, and Instant Pot accessories that I cannot do without. Every time I make a keto meal at home, I’m using one of these tools.
As much as I love it, I don’t have a lot of extra time in my life to dedicate to cooking. I do everything I can to help cut down on cook time. This list is full dedicated to making your life easier and keeping your cooking time down. Having the correct tools at your disposal will make you more excited to try new recipes and will ensure that the recipe comes out just as expected. Of course, you can still make delicious Keto Meals at home without these fancy tools, but the next time you are making a birthday list or want to buy yourself a present consider investing in an Instant Pot, or a nice baking dish. I promise you won’t regret it.
P.S To make life easier, I’ve added everything on this list to my Amazon Store. Just Click here to start shopping!
FAVORITE KETO COOKING TOOLS
Food processor: I use my food processor all the time to make prep work easier. But as long as you have either a food processor, a high-powered blender, or a bullet blender you’ll be fine! I also have a Blendtec Blender that was gifted to me and it is amazing for smoothies!
Immersion blender: This works great for soups; but again, it isn’t essential if you have another type of blender.
Mini waffle iron: chaffles anybody?! (Never heard of a Chaffle? It’s a cheesy low carb waffle and it’s amazing! Recipe Coming soon!)
Slow Cooker: I have what is probably the cheapest and most simplistic slow cooker around and it works awesome. Of course, you could also totally get one with a timer and all that good stuff ;)
13 × 9-inch baking dish: When I’m not using my pressure cooker, I’m probably using my Le Creuset baking dish. I love it and it was totally worth the investment.
13-inch nonstick deep sauté pan: I don’t use cast-iron pans because they are too heavy for my arthritic hands, so I stick to a great deep, nonstick sauté pan.
3-cup Bundt pan: This may not entirely be a staple, but it is very useful if you want to make beautiful Keto Cakes for special occasions.
And Now for All Things Instant Pot!!!
Instant Pot: I love, love, love my electric pressure cooker! As a busy mom there is no better cooking tool! You can get the basic Instant Pot or get super fancy and get the latest model that makes Yogurt and connects to wifi.
Keto In An Instant: my newest cookbook! I'm so excited for it to come out. I know you guys have been asking me for a cookbook with photos for every recipe and here it is! 80 easy IP recipes with a full color photograph for each!
Instant Pot Accessories
Silicone egg bite molds: I love using these for individually sized egg bites that make breakfast so easy. I also use these to make Keto Pancake Bites in my Instant Pot. They come out beautifully fluffy!
Ramekins: I like to use 4-ounce and 6-ounce ramekins depending on the recipe—they are great for making single-serving desserts, egg dishes, and more.You can use these inside your Instant Pot or alone.
7-inch round baking dish: The perfect size for my pressure cooker, I use this pan to make my Cinnamon-Pecan Coffee Cake (coming soon in Keto In An Instant) and many other recipes.
Steamer basket: It seems strange to me that pressure cookers don’t come with a steamer basket, but they don’t so you will definitely want to pick one up.
