LoadingFavoriteAdd to favorites

Below I am sharing with you some of my all-time favorite kitchen tools that I use daily. I love kitchen gadgets! If you have a treasured kitchen tool that you find valuable and worth its weight in gold, please share below in the comment section. I would love to hear from you.


For those of you who are just starting with your raw food adventure or you have limited kitchen space, don’t feel that you must have all these items listed below to be successful. My collection grew over time. Not to mention through trial and error in testing out all kinds of different products.

Don’t dismiss the fact that some of the items are simple everyday items. Read through them because you may find creative ways that a simple tool can be used in raw food prep. I have provided shopping links for each item at the bottom of the page. Blessings, amie sue

Cookie Scoops

Use: To make cookies, cake pops, donut and bagel shapes, truffles, etc. I use the following scoops.



Offset Spatulas

Use: I use these all the time for cracker and bar making, icing cakes, etc.



Use: I use this every day.

Pastry Scraper

Use: I use this for cleaning batters off of my dehydrator sheets or the countertops. It is an excellent tool for scoring bars as well.

  1. This is such a user friendly read and very useful. I think you just saved the masses of women, like me, who buy and return.
    I’m printing this since you’ve clearly done the research and testing and I didn’t even have to dirty a tool I’d have to return anyway.
    Thanks so much for sharing and making our kitchen life so much easier.

      Goodness thank you Dina for the kind and encouraging words! I created this site to help others in their journey of eating healthier and it brings me the greatest joy in doing just that! The kitchen can be an intimidating place, I speak from experience. My goal is to help strip that fear away and replace it with creativity. :) Have a blessed day and thank you again for the kind comments! amie sue

    I just fell in love with your page. :)
    I have been reading and learning reading and learning.
    I saw you have a metal type of nut milk strainer on one of your pages. Where did you that? I have been looking high and low for a nut milk strainer that I can just push down and not use a bag or a metal mesh and spoon….

    Thank you

    Hi there!
    I so enjoy your site and have made many of your recipes. I’ve been using my Vitamix to blend stuff and it works great most of the time but I killed it when making your mint chocolate brownies. I wonder what brand food processor you use/recommend? Especially for blending some of the thicker ingredients?
    Thanks so much!

    Does the strainer that you recommend work well for rinsing quinoa. I thought I found one that might work once, but the quinoa drops right through.

    Thanks so much!


  7. Maja says:

    Hi, I love all of your recipes. Thank you for sharing. I am interested to know what kind of a food processor do you use? I am about to go and get one for my self, but i am not sure if i should go for just any food processor. I know that the Vita Mix is the best, but it is too expensive. I want to be able to make smooth paste for dips and frosting. I’ve never used a food processor, so don’t know if any would do the job? Any advise please? Thank you. And keep up the amazing work that you do.

    I’m with you on the dish fetish. I love looking at garage sales or thrift stores for unique finds. I love putting our cereal in the morning into a pretty desert dish. Just makes it more fun!

    • amie-sue says:

      I agree 100% Sabrinat :) I don’t believe in only using certain dishes for certain occasions. Life is too short and unpredictable for that. Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed day, amie sue
