These are the functional, beautiful kitchen tools that can make entertaining, cleansing, or takeout better.

  1. 1

    ALL SET

    If your New Year’s resolution was a full kitchen upgrade, we’ve got your winner: Caraway’s gorgeously minimal ceramic cookware set, complete with a fry pan, saucepan, Dutch oven, and sauté pan. Choose from five colors—cream, grey, perracotta (a blend of pink and terra-cotta), sage, and navy. This nonstick ceramic will outperform your old set (by a lot). It’s free of the harmful chemicals used in traditional nonstick pans, heats efficiently, and wipes down easily.

    PREP SCHOOL

    When it comes to kitchen gadgets, a mandoline is our number one pick to expedite detox month—or any food prep, for that matter. Whether you’re slicing Persian cucumbers into detox lettuce cups or shaving fennel for an elegant salad, the Super Benriner Mandoline is up to the challenge with three interchangeable blades and a guard to keep your fingers safe as you go. Plus, it lies flat for easy drawer storage once you’re done.

    ZEST
    FOR LIFE

    So the mandoline takes first place for essential kitchen tools, but the microplane is our runner-up. Use it to finely grate ginger, garlic, and citrus zest and your dressings and marinades will be incredibly flavorful. It’s versatile, inexpensive, and even dishwasher-safe—just a few of the reasons we think every home cook should have one.

    SHEAR JOY

    Can your kitchen scissors cut veggies and fish with precision, double as a garden tool, and even triple as a bottle opener? These goop-exclusive German kitchen scissors do all that while being super comfortable to grip. (And if you’re following the goop detox, they’ll come in handy for the kelp noodles.)

    GRIND TIME

    This duo is too gorgeous to hide away in a cabinet. We’re currently using these Scandinavian grinders to add some spice to our detox recipes. Think beyond salt and pepper: The bottles have ample room to fill with any spice and herb combo you can think up.

    LUNCH WITH TIFFIN

    The three layers of this stainless steel food container can divide an entire day’s worth of food—keeping everything fresh and unsoggy. It’s a great alternative to plastic storage, and the stainless steel is a step above glass in terms of insulation, so bone broth stays warm and crudités stay cold.

    RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

    Take a page out of GP’s book (we promise they’re all clean) and make yourself one of her favorite smoothies, soups, bowls, snacks, entrées, or desserts. You’ll also find nutrition tips and cleanses from doctors and health experts to help customize and support your nutritional goals. But you’ll keep coming back to this cookbook throughout the year because most of the recipes are easy to make and packable for meals on the go (they don’t skimp on flavor either).

    FILLER UP

    Hydrating is a necessary component of any detox. It flushes out your body and in turn replenishes your cells. So: Clean drinking water that’s free from contaminants is also necessary. This white ceramic water filter sits pretty on your countertop, purifying up to a gallon of water. Just fill the top chamber with tap water and wait as it drains through the gravity filter, delivering water through the stainless steel spigot on the bottom (no plastic here).

    IN THE BAG

    One of our ongoing resolutions is to use less and less plastic. Which requires some planning ahead. These dye-free cotton produce bags are good for loading up on fruits and veggies at the farmers’ market or grocery store. They cinch closed, protecting your produce while letting it breathe through the food-safe mesh. And whenever you need to, throw them straight into the washing machine for a refresh.

    HOME GROWN

    No matter the season, you can grow fresh herbs, greens, and fruit right on your countertop. And if you lack a green thumb, you can breathe a sigh of relief: SproutsIO has developed a personalized growing system that maintains the optimal temperature, lighting, water level, and humidity for your plants throughout their life cycle—all of which be monitored via its phone app. Nothing feels cleaner than adding your own homegrown cilantro, arugula, or basil to a recipe.

    OIL TAKE TWO

    A good olive oil, particularly one that’s grown in California and certified organic, can elevate a dish from good to scraping-the-plate-clean good. Brightland’s olive oil duo comes with two bottles (coated with UV powder to protect them from sun damage) of extra virgin, each with its own unique flavor profile. Alive has a nutty tomato-and-pear aroma, and Awake is more herbaceous and complex. Drizzle them over everything liberally.

    WIPE OUT

    One thing we were still having trouble figuring out was how to break up with the numerous plastic bottles that come with cleaning products. Blueland has a solution that we’re all for: reusable glass bottles and cleaning tablets that are free of parabens, phthalates, and VOCs. The starter kit comes with three spray bottles (bathroom, glass and mirror, and surface) and a hand soap bottle, as well as cleaning tablets that you drop into each bottle. Fill them up with water and you’re ready to start cleaning.
