Soup pot  and an   Instant Pot  (electric pressure cooker)   Real knives  with a sharpener. These are Global but there are other good brands   Cuisinart  . Not pictured a   small cuisinart  for dressings   Cast iron     skillets  . I have 3 different sizes   Vitamix.  No other blender compares.   Molcajete  . And an electric   juicer.  I actually found this one in HomeGoods but they are everywhere now. I dont like the ones that are too smooth inside. For grinding spices. I heat whole spices in skillet first.   Juicer

MORE UTENSILS added through the years

LT TO RT.  Spirializer for zucchini spaghetti, small cuisinart for dressings and toppings, and our best friend, the Instant Pot. (Working as we type.) That thing on left is my mulch bucket. We have a mulch pile full of worms. No animal scraps, just veggies so we don’t attract rodents and it becomes dirt for garden. To mulch pile we also add coffee grounds and filter, lint from vacuum, shredded paper from shredder, and ground leaves from my SunJoe garden mulched.
