Chef Nancy uses a lot of different types of kitchen equipment.  Many you will see in her videos.  Most of these products, we have been using for years and several people have asked about them.  This is a listing of our recommended products that we currently own and use; almost daily.  There are other, equal or maybe even better ones but we have found these to be excellent, functional and long lasting.  We supplied the links for Amazon because, well it's just easier.
