10 Things You Should Be Buying from Williams Sonoma

Williams Sonoma is one of those stores that is totally inspiring. I’m not a chef by any means, but with only one foot in the store I can feel my domestic goddess setting in.

Their prices are higher than our usual places, but these products are my faves and well worth the investment.

No.1 Assorted Kitchen Towels, oh so lovely and thick, and a pack of four matching is very rare and ubber cute.

No.2 Pot Holder, adorable and sturdy but I’m mostly in love because it matches the apron.

No.3 Apron, forget the super cutie ones, this one makes me feel like a pro…hum I wonder if my food actually tastes better when I use this in prep?! Oh, and of course keeps me clean…even when hot grease comes a spittin’.

No.4 Ice Cream Maker, this one was a gift and we’ve LOVED it. Simple ingredients turned and chilled together makes a guilt free treat. Why is it that EVERYTHING is better homemade?

No.5 Gourmet Knife, we received a whole block for our wedding, but find ourselves using this one 50 times more than the others. Cutting tomatoes has never been so blissful.

No.6 Cook Books, to die for photography and do-able recipes. I love the few books I have, but this one is a fave to give at weddings, for that couple who already seems to have everything.

No.7 Le Creuset Dutch Oven, you know we love these babies. Sold everywhere, but we always tend to love their colours best.

No.8 Swissmar Peelers, gift from daddy-in-law who’s a Williams Sonoma snob! When he bought these over, I thought they were totally unnecessary at $18 but they are seriously a dream. Now I kinda look forward to peeling my potatoes…kinda!

No.9 Panini Press, another gift and this one seriously changed my life. Cooking for two, this is used almost every night, especially in the summer. Grilled cheese has never been so good, or easy!

No.10 Personal Embosser, this one is on my wish list. Hello Santa, did you get that?

Although their prices are pricey they have amazing sales. Seasonal clearance is especially great, and often find things 75% off, sometimes more.

It’s a great place to window shop and if nothing else, and they have delicious samples!

    I LOVE William Sonoma! I am like a kid in a candy store when I go there. The ice cream maker is definitely a must have. You have put together an excellent list! We don’t get to go that often because the closest one is in the States (I am in Canada) but we are headed their this Sunday, Mother’s Day, and a new apron is at the top of my list!

    I have my eye on the Panini press… I can’t get through the year without William and Sonoma’s herbes de Provence. The lavender is heavenly!!
