New Kitchen Finds

I found a new new things for my kitchen that I am excited about.

1.) Kitchen Aid Salad Spinner: I wasn't really in the market for a salad spinner nor did I think I would ever own one but I am a sucker for the aqua color that matches my Kitchen Aid mixer, blender, and measuring cups. I saw the salad spinners at Costco about a month ago and I managed to pass it up at the time. I went to Costco a couple of days ago and they only had a few left and only one aqua colored salad spinner. It had to be mine. It was $18.99 but it has other uses and would make a great triffle bowl too!

2.) Cuisinart Mini Prep Processor: While I was visiting my family in Iowa the past couple of weeks I used my mom's Kitchen Aid mini processor for crushing Oreos and graham crackers for dessert crusts and I loved it. When I came home I began to research them and I was set to get a stainless steel Kitchen Aid mini processor until I came across the aqua colored Cuisinart one on Amazon. It was $39. I am actually very happy with the Cuisinart and I look forward to using it.

3.) While browsing in Bed Bath & Beyond with my mom while visiting in Iowa, I saw several different styles of coffee cups with saucers. I wanted to get a couple of them for enjoying lattes, hot chocolate, or apple cider at home. I bought two at this time and may go back and purchase more later. Each cup and saucer set was $3.99.

4.) I also bought two small square appetizer plates from Bed Bath & Beyond. Each plate was $1.99. We were recently enjoying a sweet hot honey mustard with pretzels and has to use a larger salad or dinner plate so these appetizer plates really will come in handy.

Have you purchased anything new for your kitchen? If so, what is it?


  1. My KA meat grinder! (I blogged about it). You will love the salad spinner. It is great for spinning berries, too. Just lay a paper towl in first & "spin" gently.

  2. Thank you for the tip Sweet Apron! As a vegetarian I have no use for the meat grinder but I love the variety of bowls and attachment for the Kitchen Aid mixers. :)
