  Cuisinart ICE-20 Ice Cream Maker
Makes up to 1-1/2 quarts; No salt or ice needed!

Cuisinart This all-purpose frozen dessert maker handles your craving for homemade ice cream, letting you make it the healthy, low-carb way! Use it with any of the ice cream recipes here at the site, or with one of the new Keto Ice Cream mixes! Or come up with your own favorites! This machine inspires creativity.

It sits on your kitchen countertop and whirls away - far quieter than most commercial ice cream makers and is sturdy as can be. In 20-25 minutes, Cuisinart's frozen treat maker automatically makes a variety of low carb, sugarfree treats -- using ingredients ranging from heavy cream or coconut milk to berries, nuts, or chocolate! Just insert the ingredients into the top spout, hit the "on" switch, and the mixing arm takes over. Dessert is quickly made cold as the freezer bowl's cooling liquid creates an even freezing. Once finished, hand wash the inside bowl and snap back the retractable cord for easy storing.

  Extra Bowl for Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker
Holds 1-1/2 quarts; Keep one bowl always freezer-ready!

Cuisinart makes it easy for ice cream lovers by selling extra freezer bowls! Having an extra freezer bowl is extremely useful if you are making large quantities of ice cream or you plan on making different varieties. According to the instruction booklet it can take between six to twenty-two hours to freeze the bowl. We usually keep one bowl in the freezer all the time, then when making a batch of ice cream we replace it with the extra bowl. The freezer bowl doesn't take up much space and it's easy to clean!

  OXO Good Grips Natural Grip Bread Knife
Cut that low carb bread really thin and perfect!

OXO Good Grips Natural Grip Bread Knife Because fresh baked bread is now a part of our low-carb lives again, when I happened upon this bread knife in a kitchen store, it intrigued me. One of the problems with eating low-carb bread is that it doesn't come pre-sliced like we've been used to all these years. And getting the slices uniform and thin enough to fit the carb-budget bill we set for ourselves is very important. A confession: I am lousy at slicing bread. Or at least I was.

Our purchase of the OXO Natural Grip Bread Knife was one of the best things I've added to my kitchen arsenal in awhile. As you can see in the photo at right, it's shaped a little different. When you use it, you'll see how natural it feels and how easy it is to always position for a perfect slice of bread. Now if I want a grilled cheese sandwich on two slices of bread, I cut them thin enough to equal 2 carbs each (about 1/4" slices using the recipe linked above.)

The knife has a curved, ergonomic handle that keeps hand elevated and reduces wrist strain, plus it's stainless steel and dishwasher safe. I love this knife!

  Demarle Silpat Nonstick Baking Sheet Liner
11x17-Inch; Demarle Inc.

NonStick Baking Sheet Want to make low carb cheese chips without using tons of parchment paper? This can save you both time and money, as it's re-usable and easy clean. Place thin 2-3" squares of your favorite cheese (Swiss is super!) 2 inches apart on this sheet and then pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes (varies depending on microwave) and you have crisp lacy rounds that double as chips or crackers and are just delicious. And for only a trace of carbs!

Also, say good-bye, to messy greasing operations when baking or freezing! Simply place this flexible, 11-by-17-inch liner on a baking sheet and when cooking is completed (or you remove baked goods from the freezer) slide those low carb cookies or cheese crisps off the liner! It's completely nonstick, thanks to the silicone coating atop the liner's glass fabric. And the liner can be used and reused indefinitely. Cleanup is no more complicated than wiping with a damp sponge, rinsing, and drying flat. Roll up the liner for storage! It will not burn, scorch, or stick.

This is large enough that you cut it into two or more pieces to fit your individual needs for lining multiple cookie sheets or plates!

  Unbleached Parchment Paper
For Great Baking and Crisping! From Beyond Gourmet

This Jumbo roll (71 square feet) of unbleached parchment paper can be used by cooks of any level! And it's environmentally friendly (recycled/recyclable!) Put an end to your low-carb baked goods sticking because you can't "flour" things or don't want to use trans-fat for "greasing" the pans. And it's ideal for the microwave too - especially for crisping cheese for chips and taco shells! If you haven't tried parchment paper for baking, do yourself a favor and order some now! You'll love the results.

  Matfer Mandoline 2000
Slices, juliennes, and fancy-cuts!

Matfer Mandoline 2000 In Fran McCullough's best selling The Low-Carb Cookbook, she highly recommends using a good quality mandoline for slicing and preparing many of the more exotic (less common) veggies we creatively use in our cooking. That's what got me to try this, and she's right - a cheap one won't do. A really good one is worth its weight in gold, and with this, a jicama, celery root, or turnip is short work to turn itself into hash browns or crinkle cut fries!

This French-made mandoline solves two problems posed by stainless-steel mandolines: weight and complexity. Matfer trims weight by mounting stainless-steel blades and plates on a durable fiberglass frame. Thoughtful design banishes operating complexity. (An instructional video answers remaining questions.) Like other professional-grade mandolines, this one uniformly slices, juliennes, and crinkle-and waffle-cuts fruits and vegetables. The sizable mandoline--15-1/2 by 5-1/4 inches--sets up at a ski-slope angle on folding legs and stays put on rubber feet. The slicing blade has both a serrated and a straight edge, and adjusting from one to the other is uncomplicated. A knob adjusts the guide plate to the desired cutting thickness, and a gauge displays the setting in inches and millimeters.

  Salton Flax Seed Mill
Nutritionist FX5 Daily Dose - Electric grinder crushes hard flax seeds!

Flax Seed Mill Most of us low-carbers are already sold on the health benefits of our diet including flax seeds: The seeds are rich in dietary fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, which help protect against heart disease, stroke, hypertension, and inflammatory and autoimmune disorders. More important, flax seed may protect against cancer, especially hormone-sensitive kinds--hence Salton's contribution of a portion of the proceeds from this product to breast cancer research. This electric mill grinds the hard seeds into an easily digestible powder that has a pleasant, mildly nutty flavor. The ground flax can be cooked into muffins and breads (it's a great component of the wonderful Gabi's Bread Recipe!); sprinkled over salads and cooked vegetables; or added to smoothies and low carb shakes. A rotary dial allows you to set the grinding in a range from fine to coarse.

  Salton Egg Poacher/Boiler
Boils up to six eggs--choose soft, medium, or hard!

Salton Egg Poacher What? Low carbers eating eggs? You bet - it's a staple of our diet. But a great objective is to not let them feel boring and repetitive by having them cooked the same way all the time. This Salton egg poacher has been so useful to me. I've been using mine over a year and still love it!

Poach one or two eggs, create fluffy individual omelets, or cook up to six soft-, medium-, or hard-boiled eggs with this electric cooker, which actually uses steam to cook the food. A measuring cup (with a built-in egg piercer) is included--fill it with water to the appropriate level for the number of eggs you want to cook and how well done you want them, then pour the water into the nonstick heating vessel. Eggs for poaching and omelets go into D-shaped pans, while whole eggs rest on a rack. Put the clear domed lid on top and turn the dial to one of two cook settings: "silent" (you have to time the cooking) or "buzzer," which alerts you when the food is done. Clean the plastic parts in warm, sudsy water, and wipe the unit clean with a damp cloth. For compact storage, the power cord winds into a track underneath the 7-1/2-by-4-1/2-inch unit.

  OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner
Great for washing and drying lettuce, herbs, greens!

OXO Good Grips Salad Spinner It's a very healthy idea indeed for reduced carb diets to include great salads - often. But dry, unwashed lettuce and greens are not appetizing and washing often means a wet salad. Here's the answer:
Washing and drying leafy vegetables has never been simpler or more fun than with this gadget. One hand is all you need to press the soft, cushioned knob to start the spinning; when the built-in brake is applied and the job is done, the basket and bowl can be taken apart and used separately. The knob locks down for easy storage, and the spinner is dishwasher-safe. Use this tool with lettuce, raw spinach, broad-leafed herbs, and greens--they end up clean and oh-so-dry, and the drier your leaves, the better salad dressings will adhere and the less mushy your sandwich bread will become. Puddles at the bottom of your salad bowl disappear... Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award.
