In recent years, I did a major overhaul in my kitchen, choosing to replace most of my tools for better, safer options for my family.  It wasn't a cheap or quick change.  It took place over probably a year as I kept researching, saving money, and shopping around.  Now a few years into our choices, I can say we made some great ones!  Many of these are lifetime investments, and we couldn't be happier.  

As I discarded teflon, nylon, metal, and most of the plastic, here are the replacement items we have been using and can honestly recommend having in your kitchen.  Click the images for product links.

Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Ovens & Pans by Lodge & Le Creuset

Lodge Raw Cast Iron Skillets & Griddles.  Made in the USA.

Glass French Press for Coffee.  No Heated Plastic.

Le Creuset Stoneware Mugs.  Beautiful colors.

Pyrex Bakeware.  Made in the USA.

Baking Stone For Cookies & Pizza. Made in the USA. 

Non-Stick Silicone Coated Muffin Tin.  Made in the USA

Oster Ceramic Waffle Maker.  Teflon-Free.

Kitchen Aid Mixer Replaces Teflon Bread Machine

E-cloths Replace Chemical Cleaners

I hope these suggestions were helpful to you.  What other safe kitchen items do you use in your kitchen?  Leave a comment, we would love to learn more!

Ok, Jamie. Brilliant idea to transform your kitchen! What did you do with all of the items you purged?

Hi Shauna! We threw out anything that I didn't feel right passing along. That was most of it. I think some friends took other items even after I disclosed why I was getting rid of them. Some people don't worry about materials like I do. And for other things that I thought were probably reasonably safe, I put in my garage sale. Hope that helps!

Your ideas for your kitchen changeover look interesting, but very pricey. Do,you receve a discount for this kind of advertising?
Thanks you.

Hi Anonymous, yes, it was an expense. I saved up for a year to buy most of it. Most of it will last a lifetime. And as an allergy mom who lives in the kitchen, that's how I justify using durable and safe tools. We don't spend money in restaurants, etc. My only compensation is the small amount as an Amazon affiliate but in the case of my kitchen re-do, I paid for it all out of pocket with cash. Changing a little at a time is a good idea, then it's more do-able. The raw cast iron is super affordable, that's where I started. :)
