Tropical Island – What Kitchen Utensil Would You Take…

I had so much fun reading what foods you all would take with you on a tropical island, I thought I’d turn this into a mini-series…

If you were going to be shipped off to an undisclosed location that looks like the above picture and could only bring 1 kitchen utensil, what would you take with you?!?

Me. I would take my garlic press.  I use. it. all. the. time.

What about you?!?  What kitchen utensil could you not live without???

(And again. Don’t overthink this!)

    I would take my professional knife. With it–I could do a lot of cutting and mincing. Can take the place of many other items that I use a lot.

    My immediate thought was my giant, heavy All American 921 pressure canner. Sigh. I need a life. A better, more realistic thought would be my nice Kitchen Aid chef’s knife. Without which, nothing much happens in my kitchen.

    I couldn’t live without my pampered chef bamboo spoon but I am not sure what good it is going to do me on a dessert island so it might be better to bring something more practical :)

    My heavy duty knife,I’m always chopping something up,like garlic,onions and a lot of other Vegetables and meat. I could use it on the coconuts ,pineapples and others!

    I would take one of my Pampered Chef bamboo cooking spoons. I use it for everything, cooking, serving, etc…and I could use it to dig a hole to cook, for a fire or let it gather rain water in if I needed to. It is a multi use tool in my kitchen.

  6. Sarah Remmert says

    I love my tongs! I use them to stir up pasta, flip chicken while it’s sauteing, grab stuff out of a pot, etc. I love them. Probably won’t be much help on a deserted island though!

  7. Gail says

    I would have to take a coffee pot also. It would have to be the kind you use over an open fire. A percolater.

  8. Heather says

    I would have to say my bread pan. I am a carboholic and am always making homeade breads w/ diff. things from veggies, fruits, grains, etc… I am a vegetarian and bread is my meat. 😉 Lol

  9. Joy says

    I think my blender to make smoothies and also to “blend” up the nasty protein things into the fruit! lol

    Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any ideas? Thank you!
