My Kitchen Appliances // Which ones are WORTH it?!

My Kitchen Appliances // Which ones are WORTH it?!

I get a LOT of questions about my kitchen appliances – here’s (almost) all of them! I go over the pros, cons, and frequency of how often I use my blender, food processor, air fryer, instant pot, and juicer, as well as if I think each appliance is “worth it”

    I’d love a video on vegan slowcooker meals. 99% of the slowcooker tutorials I’ve seen are for recipes with meat.

  2. Sándor Szekeres on November 27, 2020 at 6:05 pm

    I realised that she doesn’t eat meat after 5 secs.

  3. Dana Gildersleeve on November 27, 2020 at 6:06 pm

    I had that same ancient food processor! My mom gave it to me because she wasn’t using it and I loved it. I used it for years but sadly it eventually broke and I don’t like the new ones nearly as much.

    my heart broke when I clicked on that juicer link but it’s ok I’m ok

  6. Denise Beaver on November 27, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    You should make baked whole parties in the instant pot. Cook at least 5 potatoes for 10-12 min then let natural release for 10 min. AWESOME. Creamy, moist and delicious. Even better out of the fridge the next day.

    I use my 6qt Instant Pot to make yogurt too. It does an awesome job for yogurt and makes it really simple. I have a Cuisinart food processor and a Vitamix. My air fryer is a 6qt Corsori, and I love it, and their recipes are to die for. My 6qt appliances are ideal for four adults. I also have a Tribest SlowStar juicer. It is a gravity fed, masticating juicer. I like it because it does a really great job and it is quieter than any other juicer I have looked at.

  8. Cassi Lamb on November 27, 2020 at 6:09 pm

    I have the Ninja blender and I love it! It’s really powerful and is like half the price of the Vitamix.

  9. My Kitchen My Cuisine & Lifestyle on November 27, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    Nice 👍

  10. Patti Doyle on November 27, 2020 at 6:15 pm

    I don’t mind the coming up to pressure time. We never count the “coming to a boil” time when stove top cooking…and that can take a while with a full pot too.

  11. Sherri on November 27, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    Instant Pot also makes rice, oatmeal, potatoes, steamed veggies, corn on the cob, soups, stews, and even vegan yogurt.

  12. Jessie Madanat on November 27, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    You should try sweet potatoes and carrots in instant pot for 8 minutes then throw in the Vitamix with coconut milk and a lil olive oil Yumm

  13. Elena Graetz on November 27, 2020 at 6:18 pm

    Does the cheaper Vitamix work well too? Like smooth kale smoothies and nut butters?

  14. Evolution of Masha on November 27, 2020 at 6:19 pm

    I have been debating getting the foodi for months now. I don’t have a air fryer or instant pot and obviously want both but that size man…’s a honker! I do like the reasons you like it though. Thanks Caitlin!

  15. Natalia Endacott on November 27, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    We’ve got that blender!

  16. Kristin R on November 27, 2020 at 6:20 pm

    I have an instant pot, foodi grill, ninja bullet style blender, crock pot, and immersion blender. Those are the essentials for me. I’m thinking of getting a food processor because I chop a lot of veggies by hand and I don’t like the mess or time in takes but I’m intimidated by them. I’ve never used one.

  17. A W on November 27, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    The instant pot is worth it for yogurt alone IMO so much cheaper then the store.

  18. Liz Williams on November 27, 2020 at 6:21 pm

    I love my Kitchen Aid mixer for cakes & breads ♡ I hadn’t thought about an instant pot, but my previous slow cooker had a saute function & my current one does not & I am really missing it! It is so useful for starting soups, sauces, stews & curries so you don’t have a second pan to clean… & I have done beans & rice in the slow cooker before but it sounds like the instant pot would be perfect for them too 👌

  19. Suziezur Freiheit on November 27, 2020 at 6:22 pm

    There is one thing about the Vitamix that noone ever mentions: my bf got one and I feel it’s mostly great for liquidy kind of things like smoothies and soups but when you have something with a firmer consistence you have to scrape out the container half an eternity because the food is "stuck" to the part around the blade.

  20. tiredapplestar on November 27, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    You can get a refurbished Vitamix for a bit cheaper. I have one of the basic models that was refurbished and I love it! Never had any issues after having it for 4 + years of using it on a daily basis.

    This thumbnail is legendary

  22. Swole8k E7 on November 27, 2020 at 6:27 pm

    Please check out a rotisserie cooker and a sous vide.

  23. Techfitters on November 27, 2020 at 6:29 pm

    Love the video and was cracking up at the snarky bit about dirty looking appliances, keeping it real haha.

  24. Joe Bartlett on November 27, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    where’s the George Foreman grill? lol

  25. Qibli on November 27, 2020 at 6:30 pm

    Can’t you just get to the point? Why prattle on?

  26. gigi on November 27, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    Hey Caitlin, which appliances would you recommend most for college students living in a dorm (especially a shared one)?

  27. Paxton Ghandi on November 27, 2020 at 6:31 pm

    ive been wanting videos like this, thank you!!!

  28. Harshi Shreyan on November 27, 2020 at 6:32 pm

    It has been observed that appliances acquired on rent make a lot of sense when you moving to long distance quite often. Click here for more info Must-have essentials every renter need –

  29. Karen Strider on November 27, 2020 at 6:33 pm

    I have that Cuisinart food processor. I bought it new and it finally died after 38 years. Great show!

  30. Lauren Elise on November 27, 2020 at 6:36 pm

    I’m kind of upset this video didn’t show up in my subscription feed

  31. Zachary Cain on November 27, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    "Vegan phase in college"… are you no longer vegan?? 🙁

  32. piupiu on November 27, 2020 at 6:40 pm

    Do you ever make rice in the instant pot? I make congee but I am afraid that it sticks if I make normal or sticky rice which requires little water..I saw that there is a ceramic non stick inside pot that you can buy but ccannot find it on french amazon yet..used to make it in this old rice cooker given to us by my bf’s mum but saw that the nonstick surface is kind of coming off and that’s cancerous I think

  33. Ally Sluga on November 27, 2020 at 6:41 pm

    If you’re looking to smooth out your cashew cream in a Ninja, pressure cook them first (as opposed to just soaking them), or boil them. It makes a huge difference

  34. Umar Ameen on November 27, 2020 at 6:43 pm

    How to best brand name?

  35. Jacqui Rose on November 27, 2020 at 6:46 pm

    Vitamins start at like $900 here in Australia it kills me how much more expensive evrything is here compared to America

  36. Ellen Tevault on November 27, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    Awesome video

  37. Kim McEwan on November 27, 2020 at 6:47 pm

    I use this KitchenAid kitchen robot and it’s really perfect:

    yes it’s a little pricey, but with 15 optional attachments it’s not a standard mixer, you can do anything with it.

  38. yogiyoda on November 27, 2020 at 6:48 pm

    Nice vid. But I can’t tell if the appliances are big or you are small. Need something for scale. Like some canned goods etc.

  39. Maria Scarborough on November 27, 2020 at 6:51 pm

    This video is the content I need! I love it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I have a ninja blender and food processor combo that is amazing. I use it pretty much every day. Been thinking about adding the instant pot/ air fryer ninja as well. We will see! Thanks for making great videos

  40. TheOwensThree on November 27, 2020 at 6:52 pm

    Can’t live w/o my Vitamix and InstantPot!

  41. User 123 on November 27, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    I went vegan for the month and it went sooo well I’m going to continue it

  42. The Desi Lifestyle on November 27, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    She is not a minimalist.

  44. Misty Uren on November 27, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    I remember our mother would always use the same large carving knife on such things as the Thanksgiving turkey and then use the same knife for chopping up the large fecal logs my brother would leave in the toilet which then wouldn’t flush.  Every holiday I’d just stare at that big knife  and NOT think ‘hunks of turkey’.

  45. Brandon Simms on November 27, 2020 at 6:56 pm

    U forgot

  46. XperiMental on November 27, 2020 at 6:58 pm

    Wassup Caitlin

  47. Bethany Day on November 27, 2020 at 6:59 pm

    i got an Oster for 60$ that has more power than your nutri bullet duo. that has about 600 watts and my oster has 1200 watts………so yeah. WOW omg. i just went through every blender on the vitamix website and not a one of them goes up to 1500 watts of power except for the most expensive one from the classic section which made it too 1600 watts of power…go with the Nutribullet brand but get the Spectra or the Master Chef version, same/more power than vitamix, literally half or MORE of the cost at like 160$. wow. f**k vitamix. my 60$ oster is only 250 watts less powerful than you vitamix. i am dying of laughter over here.

  48. Amanda De La Torre on November 27, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    Vitamix is totally worth it!!! They’re usually like 100 dollars cheaper on Amazon and even cheaper when refurbished. I just got mine and it has a 10 year warranty and it lasts more than that. It can be used to make nut butters and nut milks, you can juice with it if you get a nut milk bag, and you can make soup and dressings. I use mine 2 plus times a day. I hated chunky smoothies and it was so freaking worth it

  49. Hannah McCracken on November 27, 2020 at 7:00 pm

    You should make a video of recipes in the Ninja foodi! I just bought one and am a little overwhelmed!

  50. new.found.vegan on November 27, 2020 at 7:01 pm

    Love your juicer! My vitamix is my fave appliance and I use it at least once a day:)
