As a pastry chef, I love to use my juicer to make fruit fillings and glazes for my doughnuts. I also enjoy using my juicer at home to get in all the fruits and veggies we need, but don’t always have time to eat!

I recommend a Breville Smoking Gun in the kitchen to infuse smokiness into dishes as well as add a new layer of creativity.

I am 100 percent hooked on the Instapot! It’s a rice cooker, a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a baking oven! I think it may even be able to blow dry your hair.

I highly recommend the Anova Second Generation Precision Cooker Immersion Circulator for the home cook because of its capabilities and affordable price. I absolutely love this gadget because of its precise sous vide cooking features. It’s Bluetooth compatible: You can easily download the app onto your smartphone and control the process from wherever you are.

I’m a big fan of the electric tabletop flat top griddle. It’s always non-stick and can do anything from breakfast to grilled cheese. You can make 3-4 portions at a time and they are inexpensive. They’re great at regulating heat so you won’t burn stuff.

A spiralizer machine is great for turning heavy meals into meals my children love with a healthy twist. Hide some zucchini and squash noodles in their spaghetti. They’ll never know.
