Inspired by the Whole Earth Catalog, Kit is a community to discover, discuss and get interesting products — grouped into kits — for activities like traveling, photography, cooking, cycling and more. Products have been recommended on Kit over a million times, from experts & creators large and small including Hot Thai Kitchen’s Pailin Chongchitnant; Laura LeBoutillier aka Garden Answer; and Podcaster and Cookbook Author Anna Vocino.
We’ve sifted through tens of thousands products to bring you the top recommended cooking products for all those bunsen burners in your life. You can thank us later (with lasagna).
#1. First up, coffee: Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker
Lifehacker @davidgalloway says: “The Aeropress is the best fauxspresso brewing method and probably the most consistent way to brew. As long as you have a grinder and a scale, you’re golden.” Now I’m awake.
#2. Next up, the Instant Pot 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker
Cookbook author @AnnaVocino says: “The Instant Pot is a pressure cooker on steroids so you can cook your steroid-free meats and eggs in a fraction of the time. This device might usurp the coveted positions the slow cooker and spiralizer hold as my kitchen darlings. Shhhh. Don’t tell.” We won’t.
#3. A classic: The Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron 2-Quart Round French Oven
Top chef @entertainingwithbeth says: “A Le Creuset Dutch oven is an heirloom piece of kitchen equipment. I have a few in my kitchen that will no doubt be passed down to my daughters. They are just the most versatile pots with the best heat conduction I have ever seen.” Can’t wait to try this one out.
