Oprah knows a thing or two about good living. We’ve followed her “Favorite Things” lists literally since we were kids (she’s been doing them for 25 years now), and we always know that we can expect quality when she recommends something. So when we realized that our kitchens could use a little upgrading to make the experience of cooking breakfast, lunch, and dinner at home a little more fun and a little easier, we knew we could comb through some of Oprah’s recommended products lists to find the tools our kitchens lack. From an electric wine bottle opener that makes serving guests a breeze to a grill accessory that can help you churn out perfect pizzas at home, these are some of our favorite Oprah-approved kitchen tools.
Our Place Always Pan
Oprah isn’t the only person who’s raved about the Always Pan from Our Place – but she is the most famous! This cult-favorite pan that you’ve probably seen on Instagram hundreds of times comes in a variety of on-trend colors, so cooking your favorite meals is anything but boring. They look so good, you can even leave them on the stove top if you don’t have lots of storage.
Honey-Can-Do Glass Herb Preserver
Fresh herbs can add so much brightness and flavor to a dish, but too often they wind up limp and mushy in the fridge. Use this Oprah-approved glass herb preserver, though, and you’ll be surprised at how much longer your herbs stay fresh. You’ll save money in the long run.
Green Pan Skillet
In Oprah’s 2021 Favorite Things list, she called these GreenPan skillets “durable,” and she also mentioned their non-stick coating, which makes cooking with less oil (and with a more eco-friendly non-stick coating) easy. We love this GreenPan skillet that comes with a lid, and is oven safe.
Bread machines might sound retro, but this one made Oprah’s favorite things list in 2021. It mixes, kneads, rises, and bakes all in one handy machine, so you can have freshly made bread whenever the craving strikes.
BakerStone Pizza Oven
If you love pizza but can never get it to turn out quite right at home, this Baker Stone Pizza Oven, which has Oprah’s seal of approval, could be the answer. It raises the temperature of your outdoor grill to be as hot as a wood-burning pizza oven, which means you can cook up authentic-tasting pizza in minutes.
Oprah isn’t the only one who approves of HexClad’s cookware – Gordon Ramsay uses it too. You could treat yourself to the 13-piece HexClad hybrid cookware set with lids, or opt for a smaller addition to your kitchen, like this endlessly useful 12-inch skillet.
Electric Wine Opener
There’s nothing worse than struggling to open a bottle of wine in front of company, so this Oprah-approved electric wine opener is a necessity. It’s especially helpful if you have carpal tunnel, arthritis, or other hand and wrist ailments that make opening wine with a manual corkscrew painful.
Reusable Glass Straws
If you like to entertain and have people over for drinks (like Oprah), then a set of these eco-friendly reusable glass straws is a must-have.
