We also love personal pan pizzas, hot dogs, smoked sausages, and more prepared in the air fryer.

There is an air fryer for almost every budget.

In 1999, I purchased a ProLine series, Kitchenaid Mixer. It is a 5-quart/10-speed Heavy Duty Stand Mixer. I have several attachments, too. The one I use the most is the pasta roller and cutter set. (Check out my egg noodle recipe.) The only thing I wish is that mine was on a tilt stand. They are a lot more colorful nowadays. Mine is dark grey.

Pots and Pans

Nonstick Frying or Saute Pan

I use a nonstick skillet for most of my egg cooking and any food I don’t need to crisp. These copper pans work well.

Home Hero 2 Pcs Orange Matte Pots and Pans Set Non Stick – Induction Compatible Orange Matte Cookware Set + Bakeware Set – Non Stick, PFOA Free, Oven Safe Pot and Pan Set (2 Pcs – Orange Matte)

  • CUSTOMER SERVICE – Please, if you have any questions or issues regarding the Home Hero frying pan please do not hesitate to send the seller a message through Amazon we will respond within 24 hours.

Stock Pot

I prefer a heavy stockpot for cooking stews, spaghetti sauce, roasts, and soup. My stockpot is enameled cast iron.

Lodge 6 Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven with Lid – Dual Handles – Oven Safe up to 500° F or on Stovetop – Use to Marinate, Cook, Bake, Refrigerate and Serve – Island Spice Red
  • YOUR GO-TO DUTCH OVEN: A flawless pairing of form and function that doesn’t quit. The Lodge Dutch Oven not only makes your kitchen look good but is an enameled cast iron classic great for preparing and serving memorable meals. Broil, braise, bake or roast your favorite meals in the oven up to 500 Degree F.
  • WHAT IS PORCELAIN ENAMEL ON CAST IRON. It is glass that becomes bonded to the cast iron at high temperatures. A particulate of glass, called frit, is applied to the cast iron vessel and then baked at temperatures between 1200 and 1400° F. The glass frit melts and fuses to the cast iron, forming a bond. Porcelain enamel on cast iron is heat tolerant and impervious to water and other consumables.
  • EASY TO COOK AND CLEAN: The porcelain enameled interior has a smooth finish that minimizes sticking, promotes caramelization and resists staining. Although enameled cast iron is dishwasher safe, hand washing with warm soapy water and a nylon scrub brush is recommended to keep your Dutch Oven in tip top shape
  • HEAT RETENTION: The cast iron vessel has superior heat distribution and retention, evenly heating throughout both the bottom and sidewalls. The tightly fitting lid seals in moisture for scrumptious pot roast, stews or a large batch of beans. Our heat retention also reduces the amount of energy needed for cooking.
  • FAMILY-OWNED. Lodge is more than just a business; it’s a family. The Lodge family founded the company in 1896, and they still own it today. From environmental responsibility to community development, their heads and hearts are rooted in America. Products made with non-toxic, PFOA & PTFE free material.
