100% people, what kitchen items did you think you wouldn't need but they actually come in handy?

edited December 2011 in Food Preparation

I'm thinking about shedding some of my multitudes of kitchen equipment when I go fully raw, but I am just wondering if there are good weird hidden uses to conventional cooked food gadgets. Thanks!


  • you can make noodles from a peeler instead of a spiralizer..... i have heard some hardcore 100%'ers say all they need is a ceramic blade knife, a chopping board, and a high-speed blender. you can juice if you have a high speed blender and a nut milk bag. I've done that.... it's not that good for root vegetables, but it works for the more watery veg.

  • I wrote a long post about my experiences as a 100% raw newbie and my progression of kitchen appliances. Here's the long version (skip the first couple of paragraphs).

    The short version of what was most important to me is this:

    0. Crappy blender (already had that though)

    1. Food processor***** best kitchen item ever, for me

    2. Coffee grinder for flax

    3. Dehydrator (I used the oven with the door cracked before I got my dehydrator)


    I still haven't upgraded to a better blender yet. When my current blender dies I'll get a Blendtec or Vitamix. Funny thing is I've never desired a juicer, probably because I hate cleaning things out! My next purchase is going to be a julienne slicer.

    I can't say that I've really had much use for many of my other normal appliances. Turf them all, I say!!!!! :) Except the little things, like slicers and that kind of thing, garlic presses, and that kind of thing.

    Good luck!
