We all have our favorite kitchen items that we couldn’t live without. Most of the items on my list are ones I have used forever…or at least since I got married. That means that these products have served me well for many years since many were gifts I received at my wedding shower (cough, cough) years ago. Of course, the links here are to the newer products in the line since mine are ancient. But the fact that I’ve used mind for so many years means that they’re reliable. And since I’m a frugal girl at heart, I don’t want to have to replace items that I don’t have to.

Slow Cooker – The big one that I currently use is made by Rival. I’ve had it forever and I like that it can be programmed to high or low and for a set cooking length. This particular link is to the same style but made by Crock Pot. I’ve got a a smaller slow cooker made by Crock Pot so I can vouch for their reliability. I almost hate to admit it, but my kitchen currently is home to four separate crock pots of various sizes. I love being able to put a roast in one while carrots cook in another. At holiday time, they all get pulled out and used!
And one more place to check out
Replacements.com – If you aren’t familiar with this website then it’s worth your time to check it out. If you’ve broken any of your china pattern and need a replacement, this is the place to look. They have a huge variety of patterns of china, crystal, and silver. If your pattern has been discontinued, they probably still have items because they also buy pieces from individuals. This is a great option if you need to get rid of pieces for any reason. You do have to contact their customer service department for what they’re currently buying as it depends on their inventory. But I’ve sold a large amount of crystal pieces to them and been paid promptly. Do be aware that you are responsible for paying for shipping and handling though which can get a little pricey with heavy items.
