My Kitchen Appliances // Which ones are WORTH it?!

I get a LOT of questions about my kitchen appliances – here’s (almost) all of them! I go over the pros, cons, and frequency of how often I use my blender, food processor, air fryer, instant pot, and juicer, as well as if I think each appliance is “worth it”

    Wassup Caitlin

    Does the cheaper Vitamix work well too? Like smooth kale smoothies and nut butters?

  3. Kristin R on July 8, 2020 at 4:32 pm

    I have an instant pot, foodi grill, ninja bullet style blender, crock pot, and immersion blender. Those are the essentials for me. I’m thinking of getting a food processor because I chop a lot of veggies by hand and I don’t like the mess or time in takes but I’m intimidated by them. I’ve never used one.

  4. Valhalla Shock on July 8, 2020 at 4:36 pm

    I’d love a video on vegan slowcooker meals. 99% of the slowcooker tutorials I’ve seen are for recipes with meat.

  5. castlenani on July 8, 2020 at 4:37 pm

    The ads were killing me lol

  6. The Desi Vegan on July 8, 2020 at 4:38 pm

    She is not a minimalist.

  7. piupiu on July 8, 2020 at 4:40 pm

    Do you ever make rice in the instant pot? I make congee but I am afraid that it sticks if I make normal or sticky rice which requires little water..I saw that there is a ceramic non stick inside pot that you can buy but ccannot find it on french amazon yet..used to make it in this old rice cooker given to us by my bf’s mum but saw that the nonstick surface is kind of coming off and that’s cancerous I think

  8. new.found.vegan on July 8, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Love your juicer! My vitamix is my fave appliance and I use it at least once a day:)

  9. My Kitchen My Cuisine *Indian Vegetarian* on July 8, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Nice 👍

  10. Sherri on July 8, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Instant Pot also makes rice, oatmeal, potatoes, steamed veggies, corn on the cob, soups, stews, and even vegan yogurt.

  11. Bethany Day on July 8, 2020 at 4:44 pm

    i got an Oster for 60$ that has more power than your nutri bullet duo. that has about 600 watts and my oster has 1200 watts………so yeah. WOW omg. i just went through every blender on the vitamix website and not a one of them goes up to 1500 watts of power except for the most expensive one from the classic section which made it too 1600 watts of power…go with the Nutribullet brand but get the Spectra or the Master Chef version, same/more power than vitamix, literally half or MORE of the cost at like 160$. wow. f**k vitamix. my 60$ oster is only 250 watts less powerful than you vitamix. i am dying of laughter over here.

  12. Ivana Murphy on July 8, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    i love my vitamix to death!! i bought it refurbished and saved so much money

  13. User 123 on July 8, 2020 at 4:47 pm

    I went vegan for the month and it went sooo well I’m going to continue it

  14. Dana Gildersleeve on July 8, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    I had that same ancient food processor! My mom gave it to me because she wasn’t using it and I loved it. I used it for years but sadly it eventually broke and I don’t like the new ones nearly as much.

  15. Qibli on July 8, 2020 at 4:49 pm

    Can’t you just get to the point? Why prattle on?

  16. Kim McEwan on July 8, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    I use this KitchenAid kitchen robot and it’s really perfect:

    yes it’s a little pricey, but with 15 optional attachments it’s not a standard mixer, you can do anything with it.

  17. Christine on July 8, 2020 at 4:53 pm

    my heart broke when I clicked on that juicer link but it’s ok I’m ok

  18. Swole8k E7 on July 8, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    Please check out a rotisserie cooker and a sous vide.

  19. Paxton Ghandi on July 8, 2020 at 4:57 pm

    ive been wanting videos like this, thank you!!!

  20. Jessie Madanat on July 8, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    You should try sweet potatoes and carrots in instant pot for 8 minutes then throw in the Vitamix with coconut milk and a lil olive oil Yumm

  21. Ellen Tevault on July 8, 2020 at 4:59 pm

    Awesome video

  22. Freshhcorduroy on July 8, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    The air fryer is my favorite kitchen appliance right now by far. We use it multiple times a day.

  23. tiredapplestar on July 8, 2020 at 5:00 pm

    You can get a refurbished Vitamix for a bit cheaper. I have one of the basic models that was refurbished and I love it! Never had any issues after having it for 4 + years of using it on a daily basis.

  24. yogiyoda on July 8, 2020 at 5:01 pm

    Nice vid. But I can’t tell if the appliances are big or you are small. Need something for scale. Like some canned goods etc.

  25. Liz Williams on July 8, 2020 at 5:02 pm

    I love my Kitchen Aid mixer for cakes & breads ♡ I hadn’t thought about an instant pot, but my previous slow cooker had a saute function & my current one does not & I am really missing it! It is so useful for starting soups, sauces, stews & curries so you don’t have a second pan to clean… & I have done beans & rice in the slow cooker before but it sounds like the instant pot would be perfect for them too 👌

  26. Techfitters on July 8, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    Love the video and was cracking up at the snarky bit about dirty looking appliances, keeping it real haha.

  27. TheOwensThree on July 8, 2020 at 5:03 pm

    Can’t live w/o my Vitamix and InstantPot!

  28. Elizabeth G on July 8, 2020 at 5:04 pm

    I use my 6qt Instant Pot to make yogurt too. It does an awesome job for yogurt and makes it really simple. I have a Cuisinart food processor and a Vitamix. My air fryer is a 6qt Corsori, and I love it, and their recipes are to die for. My 6qt appliances are ideal for four adults. I also have a Tribest SlowStar juicer. It is a gravity fed, masticating juicer. I like it because it does a really great job and it is quieter than any other juicer I have looked at.

  29. Cassi Lamb on July 8, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    I have the Ninja blender and I love it! It’s really powerful and is like half the price of the Vitamix.

  30. Mia Druckrey on July 8, 2020 at 5:05 pm

    This thumbnail is legendary

  31. Hannah McCracken on July 8, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    You should make a video of recipes in the Ninja foodi! I just bought one and am a little overwhelmed!

  32. Ally Sluga on July 8, 2020 at 5:08 pm

    If you’re looking to smooth out your cashew cream in a Ninja, pressure cook them first (as opposed to just soaking them), or boil them. It makes a huge difference

  33. Patti Doyle on July 8, 2020 at 5:11 pm

    I don’t mind the coming up to pressure time. We never count the “coming to a boil” time when stove top cooking…and that can take a while with a full pot too.

  35. Krista Noelle Barril on July 8, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    Ohhh i kinda wanna get that ninja combo because i like how it’s downsizing but a little concerned about the noise. I currently have a the magic bullet and a big food processor but i need a better blender, especially one that can hold more because sometimes making food for more people is such a hassle. BUT I LOVE MY AIR FRYER!

  36. Maria Scarborough on July 8, 2020 at 5:13 pm

    This video is the content I need! I love it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I have a ninja blender and food processor combo that is amazing. I use it pretty much every day. Been thinking about adding the instant pot/ air fryer ninja as well. We will see! Thanks for making great videos

  37. Denise Beaver on July 8, 2020 at 5:14 pm

    You should make baked whole parties in the instant pot. Cook at least 5 potatoes for 10-12 min then let natural release for 10 min. AWESOME. Creamy, moist and delicious. Even better out of the fridge the next day.

  38. Karen Strider on July 8, 2020 at 5:14 pm

    I have that Cuisinart food processor. I bought it new and it finally died after 38 years. Great show!

  39. A W on July 8, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    The instant pot is worth it for yogurt alone IMO so much cheaper then the store.

  40. Lauren Elise on July 8, 2020 at 5:16 pm

    I’m kind of upset this video didn’t show up in my subscription feed

  41. Natalia Endacott on July 8, 2020 at 5:17 pm

    We’ve got that blender!

  42. Amanda De La Torre on July 8, 2020 at 5:18 pm

    Vitamix is totally worth it!!! They’re usually like 100 dollars cheaper on Amazon and even cheaper when refurbished. I just got mine and it has a 10 year warranty and it lasts more than that. It can be used to make nut butters and nut milks, you can juice with it if you get a nut milk bag, and you can make soup and dressings. I use mine 2 plus times a day. I hated chunky smoothies and it was so freaking worth it

  43. Sándor Szekeres on July 8, 2020 at 5:19 pm

    I realised that she doesn’t eat meat after 5 secs.

  44. Jacqui Rose on July 8, 2020 at 5:20 pm

    Vitamins start at like $900 here in Australia it kills me how much more expensive evrything is here compared to America

  45. anambivalentenemy on July 8, 2020 at 5:22 pm

    Hi Caitlin!
    Do you think that in every kitchen a blender AND a food processor are essential,or one can do all his work with one appliance?
    Can a modest blender grind dates and nuts to form tarts for baking,or do i need a food professor also?
    Thanks and nice video!

  46. Zachary Cain on July 8, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    "Vegan phase in college"… are you no longer vegan?? 🙁

  47. where's walnut? on July 8, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    Hey Caitlin, which appliances would you recommend most for college students living in a dorm (especially a shared one)?

  48. Joe Bartlett on July 8, 2020 at 5:23 pm

    where’s the George Foreman grill? lol

  49. Evolution of Masha on July 8, 2020 at 5:24 pm

    I have been debating getting the foodi for months now. I don’t have a air fryer or instant pot and obviously want both but that size man…’s a honker! I do like the reasons you like it though. Thanks Caitlin!

  50. Suziezur Freiheit on July 8, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    There is one thing about the Vitamix that noone ever mentions: my bf got one and I feel it’s mostly great for liquidy kind of things like smoothies and soups but when you have something with a firmer consistence you have to scrape out the container half an eternity because the food is "stuck" to the part around the blade.
