TILT: some more kitchen favorites

Posted on

Welcome to another edition of TILT: Things I Like Thursday.

Doughmakers 15-Inch Large Pizza Pan

First up is the pizza pan I have used to make every pizza on my blog (here’s the whole list if you’d like it), plus many more.  This one was recommended to me by Laura Flowers, previously known as The Cooking Photographer, who is also the person who supplied me with the chocolate chip cookie recipe that won me a blue ribbon!  All that to say, I trust this woman, and her recommendation was spot on.  This pan bakes up perfect crusts, and has a pebbled surface that prevents anything from sticking to it.

Fun note: this is also the pan I used for the My Little Pony cake display. You can see the surface of the pan in many of the prep photos on that post, and it still looks new after five years of use.  It’s made to last.

OXO SoftWorks Can Opener

Next up is something very simple: a can opener. I was so fed up with can openers that didn’t last before I bought this little gem.  It was recommended to me by two different friends on opposite sides of the country, who’ve both had theirs for years (one more than ten, the other I believe was five), and it still works perfectly.  I haven’t had mine very long, but it already has impressed me. I had bought some higher priced ones that were already wearing out after a few months of use. This simple little gadget has made me very happy.

Gourmet Rolling Fresh Herb and Multipurpose Kitchen Mincer

This is what Teri uses to make her homemade noodles, so I bought one and have used it to make thousands of delicious noodles over the last four years.  While affordable, it is good quality, I haven’t had any trouble with it at all.  And of course, you can also use it to mince your herbs.

Last but not least is my beloved canning funnel.

Prepworks Regular and Wide Mouth Canning Funnel

I love that it fits most any size jar, and has an outer collar that keeps the funnel lifted off the counter when not in use, preventing contamination and minimizing mess if you need to sit it down while canning for any reason.  Also, the handle doesn’t get piping hot as you fill jars – no burnt fingers!  It also features headspace measurements for precise filling. I love it so much.

Thanks for TILT’ing it up with me today, folks.  You can check out last week’s TILT on USA Pans if you missed it, and if you are thinking about cloth diapering, check back next Thursday for some cloth diaper fun. :)

Full disclosure: I am not being compensated for these reviews, I just really love these things and think you deserve to know about them!  This post does contain affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you buy anything after clicking the links. Thank you for supporting my blog!

  1. One thing I’m going to look for is the herb mincer.


    • I’ve actually never used it for herbs, but it’s nice and sharp and should do a good job! I figure if it can cut through noodles, it must do well with what it’s intended for as well lol!

  2. Ooh, I need that canning funnel! I would use it for everything, and not just canning!

    • LOL I’m intrigued. What else could it be used for?


      • Well other than canning, I mostly use a funnel to get protein powders or drink mixes into bottles of water. I do a days worth of drinks at a time, so I was thinking it would be nice to be able to set the funnel down on the counter without it rolling around everywhere while I am going from one product to the next! My Mom used to separate eggs with a funnel, too!

        • Cool! This doesn’t fit super small bottles, the smallest is half pint, but if the opening on your water bottles is that big you should be good to go! This doesn’t funnel really narrow like a regular funnel so it wouldn’t work for separating eggs but that is brilliant!


  3. That My Little Pony display is super cute! And I can’t even remember how many can openers I’ve blown through in the past year – too many to count! I’ll definitely try that one from OXO.
