Useful kitchen tools
Investing in a high-speed blender opens up a world of possibilities for dressings, sauces, soups, smoothies, plant milk, and more. You will also see links below to reusable items such as mason jars for storing whole grains, and legumes, metal straws to avoid excessive plastic use, and silicon baking mats that make oil free baking simple and they are so easy to wash. I also linked a tofu press.
