7 best cooking tools a healthy chef loves
Good + good Alternative training camp The series, dedicated to creating delicious, low-sugar, nutrient-dense pastries continues to garner a lot of comments on social media. Most are about the baked goods themselves, raving about their outcome when someone has tried them at home or asking about the ingredients. But there are also a lot of reviews that don’t relate to baked goods at all. Instead, they are all about the host of functional yet beautiful baking tools Mia rigden (a nutritionist and chef) uses to concoct her delicious treats.
Why Ridgen uses this particular blender, where the world found such a classy salt shaker, what brand of their handy countertop burner is … well bakers, we’ve seen your questions and we’ve got them brought directly to Ridgen herself who is happy to reveal where it all came from. Read on to find out and see videos showing how to use them to make mouthwatering desserts.
7 essential cooking tools, according to a healthy chef:
Beast Blender – $ 155.00
If you regularly connect to Alternative training camp, you know this blender gets used to many. âIt’s my favorite blender,â says Rigden. âThe Beast is compact, powerful, incredibly quiet and very easy to clean. The low volume is especially appreciated on set during filming, but will be just as much of a benefit at home when trying to create creamy homemade dairy-free pie and whipped cream fillings without boring the whole house.

Cusinart 14 Cup Food Processor – $ 246.00
Sometimes a blender just isn’t powerful enough to do what a food processor can do. (For example, turning nuts into a high protein mash.) At such times, Rigden picks up his Cusinart food processor. âIt’s an indispensable kitchen tool,â she says. âIt’s ideal for making pasta, nut butters, dips and sauces. “
KitchenAid Blender – $ 429.00
KitchenAid mixers are ubiquitous in professional kitchens and in the homes of professional bakers for a reason – they are truly amazing. This model has an almost perfect five-star rating from over 4,000 Amazon reviews. There are 10 different speeds, so you can whip as fast or slow as you want.

Tasty by Cusinart Tasty One Top – $ 149.00
Ridgen uses this cooktop whenever she needs to grill something twice.

This one is easy to carry wherever you shoot and has sensors that track the temperature of the pots and pans you place on it.
