This is a big year for me!! It's my first year being a grown-up adult doing Thanksgiving all by myself. Last year I kinda took a baby step going from my mom cooking everything for me, to cooking with my sister, and now this year I'm all ON MY OWN. I don’t want Thanksgiving to be a disaster, so of course I had to do some prep and do a test run “friendsgiving” with one of my good friends who also loves to cook. I wanted to test EVERYTHING I'm going to use for Thanksgiving dinner, and I'm SO impressed with the small kitchen appliances that totally helped make the dinner the yummiest it could be!!
At The Home Depot, you can save early on holiday hosting through 11/3 – perfect timing to get your indoor space prepped for the holidays! Here are some of the small kitchen appliances that I'm using from The Home Depot to make cooking this year just a little bit easier.
All-in-1 Air Fryer Toaster Oven
If you’re like me, I'm all about finding one appliance that replaces having many individual tools. Why have many if you can have it all in one!!?
This All-in-1 Premium 30 Qt. White Touchscreen Air Fryer Toaster Oven is the most perfect appliance! I use this for my stuffing to get that crusty, toasted bread texture we all want and need. This Air Fryer from The Home Depot worked MAGICALLY!
It heats to 450° in seconds and has 80% less oil and grease – reducing fat. The touch screen makes it so simple to choose from 10 different cooking presets to create endless amounts of possibilities. (And it comes in this cute white color which goes perfectly with my new kitchen!!)
Matte Black Electric Multi-Cooker
One of my very favorite small kitchen appliances over the last several years has been a pressure cooker. To make the perfect mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole, the pressure cooker is your tool! And trust me, it DOES IT ALL.
There are 14 different cooking presets and various lids if you want to slow cook, pressure cook, steam, sauté, and more!! I also love the glass lid it came with for slow cooking because my pressure cookers in the past have only come with one lid.
If you haven’t already invested in a multi-cooker, now is the time! This cooker from The Home Depot is significantly less than the name brand cookers at only $69.99 which is HALF of the price of most popular cookers (even when they’re on sale)!!
Another great appliance to replace all those other devices cluttering your kitchen. And how cute is the matte black color?? I am ALL about these white and black kitchen tools!!
KitchenAid Textured Ceramic Bowl
You know I LOVE my KitchenAid Stand Mixer! During the holidays, I'm using my stand mixer (sometimes multiple of them) constantly.
If you already have a stand mixer, or have yet to invest in one, the most helpful thing is to have more than one bowl!! With multiple, you can let your bread dough rise in one while using another to mix the mashed potatoes instead of washing the same bowl over and over again.
PLUS, this white ceramic bowl is so pretty if you want to save washing one more dish and serve right out of the bowl!! And who doesn’t love a microwave-friendly bowl to melt butter in the microwave and then move right into the next step for baking?? Not a must-have, but definitely a nice-to-have!!
CORDLESS 7-Speed Hand Mixer!!
This small kitchen appliance blows my mind!!! Use this mixer to mash up your sweet potatoes, normal potatoes, make homemade whipped cream, pies, everything!
It comes in so many cute colors (of course I had to get the matte black) and comes in seven speeds for all of your favorite holiday recipes! It also comes with a charger that brings the mixer from dead to fully charged in two hours. This is a great addition to your kitchen appliance collection!
It was SO NICE to be able to use this cordless hand mixer from the countertop to the stovetop without having to worry about where to plug in, especially when I was in a hurry to not have my custard for our chocolate pie burn! If you've ever tempered an egg batter, you know how important these quick steps are and it's never been easier than when I used this tool.
Sifter and Scale Attachment
This sifter is one that I didn't splurge on, but if you're majorly into baking, it would be the perfect attachment to your KitchenAid allowing you to easily weigh and sift ingredients before putting them in the bowl. It's so helpful for baking goods and sifting flour into your gravy – no one likes lumpy gravy!!
Get the exact amount of flour, sugar, whatever the ingredient is, for the perfect show stopping recipes. There are so many uses for this sifter and scale, and it is selling at such a fantastic price right now at The Home Depot!!!
Now let's talk table setting
Whatever the occasion is, these kitchen tools are so helpful to make cooking easier and more enjoyable for the tastiest meals! And to go with your yummy holiday meal, these Villeroy & Boch plates are the perfect addition to your holiday table setting or decor.
We've used our Villeroy & Boch plates for our table settings for years (see here and here!), and I absolutely love them (and just ordered more)! They are super durable, simple, and timeless.
