My Kitchen Appliances // Which ones are WORTH it?!

I get a LOT of questions about my kitchen appliances – here’s (almost) all of them! I go over the pros, cons, and frequency of how often I use my blender, food processor, air fryer, instant pot, and juicer, as well as if I think each appliance is “worth it”

    You can get a refurbished Vitamix for a bit cheaper. I have one of the basic models that was refurbished and I love it! Never had any issues after having it for 4 + years of using it on a daily basis.

    I realised that she doesn’t eat meat after 5 secs.

  3. Suziezur Freiheit on February 1, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    There is one thing about the Vitamix that noone ever mentions: my bf got one and I feel it’s mostly great for liquidy kind of things like smoothies and soups but when you have something with a firmer consistence you have to scrape out the container half an eternity because the food is "stuck" to the part around the blade.

    Hey Caitlin, which appliances would you recommend most for college students living in a dorm (especially a shared one)?

  5. Lauren Elise on February 1, 2021 at 6:21 pm

    I’m kind of upset this video didn’t show up in my subscription feed

  6. Ally Sluga on February 1, 2021 at 6:25 pm

    If you’re looking to smooth out your cashew cream in a Ninja, pressure cook them first (as opposed to just soaking them), or boil them. It makes a huge difference

    It has been observed that appliances acquired on rent make a lot of sense when you moving to long distance quite often. Click here for more info Must-have essentials every renter need –

    The instant pot is worth it for yogurt alone IMO so much cheaper then the store.

    Wassup Caitlin

  10. Joe Bartlett on February 1, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    where’s the George Foreman grill? lol

  11. Christine on February 1, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    my heart broke when I clicked on that juicer link but it’s ok I’m ok

  12. Cassi Lamb on February 1, 2021 at 6:38 pm

    I have the Ninja blender and I love it! It’s really powerful and is like half the price of the Vitamix.

  13. Evolution of Masha on February 1, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    I have been debating getting the foodi for months now. I don’t have a air fryer or instant pot and obviously want both but that size man…’s a honker! I do like the reasons you like it though. Thanks Caitlin!

  14. My Kitchen My Cuisine & Lifestyle on February 1, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    Nice 👍

  15. Denise Beaver on February 1, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    You should make baked whole parties in the instant pot. Cook at least 5 potatoes for 10-12 min then let natural release for 10 min. AWESOME. Creamy, moist and delicious. Even better out of the fridge the next day.

  16. User 123 on February 1, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    I went vegan for the month and it went sooo well I’m going to continue it

  17. Maria Scarborough on February 1, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    This video is the content I need! I love it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I have a ninja blender and food processor combo that is amazing. I use it pretty much every day. Been thinking about adding the instant pot/ air fryer ninja as well. We will see! Thanks for making great videos

  18. The Desi Lifestyle on February 1, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    She is not a minimalist.

    I love my Kitchen Aid mixer for cakes & breads ♡ I hadn’t thought about an instant pot, but my previous slow cooker had a saute function & my current one does not & I am really missing it! It is so useful for starting soups, sauces, stews & curries so you don’t have a second pan to clean… & I have done beans & rice in the slow cooker before but it sounds like the instant pot would be perfect for them too 👌

  21. Techfitters on February 1, 2021 at 6:46 pm

    Love the video and was cracking up at the snarky bit about dirty looking appliances, keeping it real haha.

  22. Hannah McCracken on February 1, 2021 at 6:47 pm

    You should make a video of recipes in the Ninja foodi! I just bought one and am a little overwhelmed!

  23. TheOwensThree on February 1, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Can’t live w/o my Vitamix and InstantPot!

  24. Jessie Madanat on February 1, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    You should try sweet potatoes and carrots in instant pot for 8 minutes then throw in the Vitamix with coconut milk and a lil olive oil Yumm

  25. Elena Graetz on February 1, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    Does the cheaper Vitamix work well too? Like smooth kale smoothies and nut butters?

    Controversies and issues regarding Teflon nonstick coating have been around for quite a while. There are mixed opinions and findings of its use in cookware, especially in nonstick pots and pans. Some claim it is safe; the others say otherwise. With so much chatter going around, things get a little bit complicated. And for this reason, some people are overwhelmed and confused, as to whether or not to use a nonstick pan.

    Please check out a rotisserie cooker and a sous vide.

  28. Misty Uren on February 1, 2021 at 6:52 pm

    I remember our mother would always use the same large carving knife on such things as the Thanksgiving turkey and then use the same knife for chopping up the large fecal logs my brother would leave in the toilet which then wouldn’t flush.  Every holiday I’d just stare at that big knife  and NOT think ‘hunks of turkey’.

  29. Jacqui Rose on February 1, 2021 at 6:56 pm

    Vitamins start at like $900 here in Australia it kills me how much more expensive evrything is here compared to America

  30. Patti Doyle on February 1, 2021 at 6:57 pm

    I don’t mind the coming up to pressure time. We never count the “coming to a boil” time when stove top cooking…and that can take a while with a full pot too.

  31. Valhalla Shock on February 1, 2021 at 6:58 pm

    I’d love a video on vegan slowcooker meals. 99% of the slowcooker tutorials I’ve seen are for recipes with meat.

  32. new.found.vegan on February 1, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    Love your juicer! My vitamix is my fave appliance and I use it at least once a day:)

  33. Umar Ameen on February 1, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    How to best brand name?

  34. Dana Gildersleeve on February 1, 2021 at 6:59 pm

    I had that same ancient food processor! My mom gave it to me because she wasn’t using it and I loved it. I used it for years but sadly it eventually broke and I don’t like the new ones nearly as much.

  35. Kim McEwan on February 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    I use this KitchenAid kitchen robot and it’s really perfect:

    yes it’s a little pricey, but with 15 optional attachments it’s not a standard mixer, you can do anything with it.

  36. Zachary Cain on February 1, 2021 at 7:01 pm

    "Vegan phase in college"… are you no longer vegan?? 🙁

  37. Bethany Day on February 1, 2021 at 7:06 pm

    i got an Oster for 60$ that has more power than your nutri bullet duo. that has about 600 watts and my oster has 1200 watts………so yeah. WOW omg. i just went through every blender on the vitamix website and not a one of them goes up to 1500 watts of power except for the most expensive one from the classic section which made it too 1600 watts of power…go with the Nutribullet brand but get the Spectra or the Master Chef version, same/more power than vitamix, literally half or MORE of the cost at like 160$. wow. f**k vitamix. my 60$ oster is only 250 watts less powerful than you vitamix. i am dying of laughter over here.

  38. Ellen Tevault on February 1, 2021 at 7:07 pm

    Awesome video

  39. Sherri on February 1, 2021 at 7:08 pm

    Instant Pot also makes rice, oatmeal, potatoes, steamed veggies, corn on the cob, soups, stews, and even vegan yogurt.

  40. yogiyoda on February 1, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    Nice vid. But I can’t tell if the appliances are big or you are small. Need something for scale. Like some canned goods etc.

  41. Mia Druckrey on February 1, 2021 at 7:09 pm

    This thumbnail is legendary

  42. Kristin R on February 1, 2021 at 7:11 pm

    I have an instant pot, foodi grill, ninja bullet style blender, crock pot, and immersion blender. Those are the essentials for me. I’m thinking of getting a food processor because I chop a lot of veggies by hand and I don’t like the mess or time in takes but I’m intimidated by them. I’ve never used one.

    ive been wanting videos like this, thank you!!!

  45. Natalia Endacott on February 1, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    We’ve got that blender!

  46. Karen Strider on February 1, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    I have that Cuisinart food processor. I bought it new and it finally died after 38 years. Great show!

  47. Amanda De La Torre on February 1, 2021 at 7:15 pm

    Vitamix is totally worth it!!! They’re usually like 100 dollars cheaper on Amazon and even cheaper when refurbished. I just got mine and it has a 10 year warranty and it lasts more than that. It can be used to make nut butters and nut milks, you can juice with it if you get a nut milk bag, and you can make soup and dressings. I use mine 2 plus times a day. I hated chunky smoothies and it was so freaking worth it

  48. piupiu on February 1, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    Do you ever make rice in the instant pot? I make congee but I am afraid that it sticks if I make normal or sticky rice which requires little water..I saw that there is a ceramic non stick inside pot that you can buy but ccannot find it on french amazon yet..used to make it in this old rice cooker given to us by my bf’s mum but saw that the nonstick surface is kind of coming off and that’s cancerous I think

  49. TOP YA on February 1, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    Thanks for sharing! The video was published a year ago. I’m looking at the 2020 review today. What do you advise, chef-master?

  50. Elizabeth G on February 1, 2021 at 7:17 pm

    I use my 6qt Instant Pot to make yogurt too. It does an awesome job for yogurt and makes it really simple. I have a Cuisinart food processor and a Vitamix. My air fryer is a 6qt Corsori, and I love it, and their recipes are to die for. My 6qt appliances are ideal for four adults. I also have a Tribest SlowStar juicer. It is a gravity fed, masticating juicer. I like it because it does a really great job and it is quieter than any other juicer I have looked at.
