What are your favorite kitchen system must haves? Here are mine-
LovoIn Nonstick Cookware Set 11-Piece Hammered Kitchen Ware Pots & Pans Set is a classic; the pans are durable enough for the Airbnb, and the outside finish looks great with any theme. They work great with the new glass top stoves, as they are induction friendly, but hold up really well with propane stoves also. The set comes with a spoon, a spatula and a spaghetti spoon. I really like these!
McCook MC21 Knife Sets,15 Pieces German Stainless Steel Knife Block Sets with Built-in Sharpener This matches the pans, and the block is amazing! My guests love the built in sharpener, I’ve actually had folks who stayed with me and raved about being able to sharpen their fishing knives with it. Really affordable but doesn’t feel like an el-cheapo knife set.
ORIOUS Kitchen Faucet with Pull Down Sprayer I have installed 3 of these in the last year in properties that I own. I love the way you can adjust the stream of water from a wide jet spray to a regular stream with a nudge. The pull down handle is really helpful for washing crab pots and other oversized items. It installs easily and has survived tenants, kids, and zealous dishwashers.
Plant Terrarium with Wooden Stand This is such a cute way to handle clippings! The glass bulbs help the roots to grow like crazy. I also put store bought herbs into these and they last forever, sometimes even taking root! This one is approximately one foot long and only takes up about 3 inches, so it fits great in a small kitchen windowsill. This is a great way to put a little greenery into your space!
Utopia Towels Kitchen Towels These are a great kitchen purchase; I like that they come in bundles of 12. They come in a lot of colors so that you can easily match the color scheme for the rest of the house. Average size and thickness, I purchase these over and over again for the short term rentals and my own house. (Pro tip: wash your towels with a little bit of vinegar instead of using fabric softener or dryer sheets to keep them super absorbent!)
Happy Belly Tea Pods Compatible with 2.0 K-Cup Brewers, Chai Latte When you have a lot of guests staying with you or in your place, it’s good to have a non-coffee hot drink to offer. My kids LOVE these, and during the winter months the short term rentals use these up!
This is a must have if you do the carafe drip-style coffee makers. I drink from the same p
Cuisinart SS-15P1 Coffee Center 12-Cup Coffee Maker and Single-Serve Brewer For my short term rentals, I love this machine, since it has auto shut off and allows people to use pods or make a pot.
At home I brew a full pot and drink from it all day; the Cuisinart with Thermal Carafe keeps the coffee from getting that ‘burnt’ taste. I’ll never go back to a glass carafe.
ENLOY 48 Pieces Stainless Steel Flatware – at my house and at the BNB’s the silverware seems to grow legs. I found these simple sets that are affordable but decent quality and don’t come with all the serving spoons and forks. I buy these packs in bulk and always seem to have ‘nice’ silverware for my guests.
