I was excited to make this delicious Cauliflower Potato Soup with fantastic tools from OXO. I seriously love their kitchen products – which cover everything from prep tools to organization. I had countless in my kitchen already and was so excited when they sent me some new ones to celebrate the cookbook launch of Healthyish.
(Disclosure: I received these utensil’s and a copy of Healthyish free of charge, but I do legit love everything.)
Here are the Details of the OXO Kitchen Tools I Used to Make this Cauliflower Potato Soup:
- Pro 8″ Chef’s Knife – Perfect for dicing, chopping mincing and scooping. This baby is sharp and gets the job done.
- 12″ Tongs – It has been years since I’ve had a good pair of tongs, and these are going to get a LOT of use in my kitchen. They are both sturdy and comfortable, perfect for effortless grabbing and flipping.
- Wooden Corner Spoon – You can never have too many spoons in your kitchen, and I love that this one is made of solid, one-piece beach woods. I love how the distinctive straight-sided shape of this one allows you to better reach along the walls and corners of cookware.
- Coarse Grater – The etched blade of this coarse grater is perfect to tackle soft cheese, apples, onions, potatoes and more!
- Swivel Peeler – I am madly in love with this peeler because it made the job of peeling potatoes a breeze while leaving all the good stuff intact. I always struggle with peelers slipping, but thanks to the cushioned handle, this one doesn’t slip even when your hands are wet.
- Kitchen and Herb Scissors – I use scissors in the kitchen every day! These are amazing for cutting meat, veggies, twine and more. I love how the soft handles feature cushioned pads to absorb pressure.
