What We Cook With

Our favorite kitchen equipment, by virtue of its versatility, practicality, or fun factor (duh, kitchen equipment can be fun). We are not affiliated with any retailers or manufacturers, so feel free to read without skepticism. 

P.S. Since we got married, we've updated the shit out of many of these items. More to come.
