2) Silpat Premium Non-Stick Silicone Baking Mat
These non-stick (and very affordable) baking mats will keep baked goods from sticking to a cookie sheet. It turns any cookie sheet into a non-stick surface, plus it’s what the pro’s in France use, so there’s that.
3) BELLA Hand Immersion Blender with Whisk
I have this and LOVE it! It’s my favorite kitchen tool and was only $16. I wouldn’t dare do a round of whole30 without it and I love that not only does it blend as well as my large blender, but it also has a whisk attachment. I don’t have to drag out my Kitchen Aid for a small batch of whip cream if I don’t want to.
