The dazzling array of kitchen gadgets and equipment on the market can make the task of setting up one’s kitchen for Traditional Cooking seem an overwhelming and expensive undertaking.
This need not be the case!
In my newest video lesson, which I filmed for the Weston A. Price Foundation (please click here to become a subscriber of their YouTube Channel), I show you exactly how to set up your kitchen quickly and inexpensively! The equipment shown in the video consists of exactly the same type of items I use in my own kitchen. These items easily meet all the needs I have for cooking meals from scratch day in and day out for my family of five.
What type of equipment do you find indispensable in your kitchen when preparing traditional meals? Do you have a favorite appliance? Please share your ideas!

Oops…that would be non-stick saute pan and non-stick skillet. Apparently I have skillet on the brain…
Loved the video! We’re currently following all these suggestions, but I’m having a hard time giving up one non-stick skillet (which we use to cook eggs) and my non-stick skillet (used to make pancakes). I’ve tried using stainless steel skillets for both these, with pretty disastrous results. Am I doing something wrong? Any other suggestions for us to try? I’ve looked at Lodge Logic cast-iron products, but I thought cast iron was supposed to be iffy…
Thanks for any suggestions you can provide! 🙂
Hey, putting food in microwave for storage might help me convince my hubbie not to use it. I want a toaster oven instead but he still uses the microwave all the time even though I have told him about the dangers.. I will make it more difficult to use! Yes!!!
Okay, so my comment is quite superficial compared to everyone else’s, but I’m going to leave it anyway! 🙂 I LOVE your shirt! Where’d you get it?

Yes, it’s so cute isn’t it? So glad you like it. I got it at Kohl’s. I hate the mall and department stores in general, and Kohl’s is close to home and pretty nonstressful to shop at. I’m really not much of a shopper. 🙂
Excellent video Sarah! I passed it on to our WAPF chapter leader so she could get it out to all the members. We have so many in our chapter who just buy these traditional foods instead of making them. I have suggested at each meeting that they go to your website and view your “how to videos,” so they will try making these foods instead of buying them, after all, homemade is better for you and so much fun to do! Thanks again for this encouraging video and I look forward to more! Keep up the good work!
yikes, does anyone know about the non-stick rice cookers? are they safe??? asians use them on a daily basis!!

Thanks Annie! I just realized I owe you a phone call too, don’t I? I am so far behind!
One of my biggest hang ups is figuring out how to quickly re-heat food. I guess it’s a time factor. I can do it in the oven but then the oven has to use all that electricity to heat one plate of food. Any suggestions what you do for your family?
I don’t yet have one myself so I don’t know what settings, etc. people utilize, but toaster ovens are purportedly useful for that.

Thanks for going through all the effort! Videos are so appealing and help new-foodies to wrap their heads around the idea of cooking. Your light and easy personality is so non-threatening, which is another great help! You are doing a lot of good out there in the world!
