Recommended tools for efficient, healthy cooking

Instant Pot IP-DUO60 Electronic Pressure Cooker

This isn’t your grandmother’s pressure cooker. The Instant Pot makes healthy meals fast, using very little energy and producing very little steam or noise. It also doubles as a rice cooker, slow cooker, steamer, and yogurt maker. Its uncoated stainless steel pot and silicone gaskets mean superior durability– I’ve used mine hundreds of times and it still functions and looks almost like new.

Spyderco Tri-angle Sharpmaker

This is the most effective, most user-friendly knife sharpening system for the money. It will last you many years of regular use. You may also want to eventually purchase the diamond stone accessory to re-bevel very dull knives. 

Excalibur 9-tray Dehydrator

Dehydrators are an excellent tool for health-minded and budget-conscious families. Excalibur dehydrators are the best for preserving garden surplus, windfalls, and bulk purchased food. The 9-tray model has 15 square feet of drying space for fruit, vegetables, jerky, and more.
