Before I got married, I didn’t have much in the way of kitchen supplies. I think I had a couple bowls and a spoon to my name. And then, of course, I got a bunch of Tupperware and cookie sheets and rice cookers for my bridal showers and wedding. Yet, even after all that, I still feel like there are some products out there that I still need and that would love to have. That’s why I consulted the trusty ‘Or so she says…’ Facebook fans! Here are some great kitchen products that come highly recommended from the best ladies in the world!
