Katie Lee Biegel Swears by These 5 Kitchen Tools for Easier Cooking
Katie Lee Biegel is the co-host of Food Network's The Kitchen, a cookbook author (check out her latest book, It's Not Complicated, which is available on Amazon for $25.49) and master of simple-but-super-tasty meals. We recently hopped on the phone to chat about what she eats in a day, her self-care routine and why she's a fan of uncomplicated cooking. Turns out, her no-fuss attitude in the kitchen extends to more than her recipes—she's also pretty low-key when it comes to her favorite kitchen tools and gadgets. Here are the five things she says she couldn't live without. (These happen to be some of our faves, too!)
Katie Lee Biegel's Favorite Kitchen Tools
She loves her Lodge cast-iron skillet. She uses her cast-iron skillet to make this drool-worthy Cast-Iron Skillet Porterhouse Steak that's featured in her newest cookbook. Bonus: This one is preseasoned, comes with a silicone handle and is only $33 on Amazon.
She has a new baby at home, so caffeine is definitely necessary. She says, "I need coffee the minute I wake up." She adds that she has a Cuisinart coffee pot, which she says is great, but "nothing fancy at all." This one is programmable, so you can wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee first thing in the morning.
Lee Biegel said that she and her husband "love a sheet-pan supper" for quick and easy meals. She says they look at what veggies and proteins they have, and roast them all on one pan. (We have a feeling she'd be into these 40 easy sheet-pan dinners!)
She truly is a woman after our own heart. She swears by parchment paper for things like baking cookies or roasted sheet-pan suppers because "it makes cleanup so easy." Anything to make our chore load a little lighter is a win in our book, too. We like this brand because it's an unbleached, bio-based product and it's totally compostable.
