    21 Old-Fashioned Kitchen Products You Won't Regret Buying

    Out with the new, in with the old!

    1. A vintage-inspired iron cookbook stand so you can start using those cookbooks collecting dust on your shelf. Now, you'll finally be able to follow the recipes without making a mess!

    2. A KitchenAid stand mixer you'll hand down to your children, because it's just that well-built! Save money and invest in those products that will last a lifetime (or two).

    3. A 14" pre-seasoned cast iron wok with a flattened bottom for all the stir fries and sautées you've been wanting to make but usually order in instead.

    4. A wooden citrus reamer that'll prove sometimes low-tech is high-reward.

    5. A cast iron, suction cupped, apple peeler to prep your fruit (or veggies) WAY faster than you can. Plus, it'll be mesmerizing to watch!

    6. A butter churn for making a homemade spread that'll be 100x butta then the store bought version!

    7. A pretty butter crock, since you'll need somewhere to put all that butter you just churned out (or actually any butter you want to keep soft and spreadable).

    8. An 11-piece cookie cutter set that'll fill the hearts (and stomachs) of all your friends and family over the holidays. Plus it comes with a recipe book to get you started!

    9. A Le Creuset Dutch oven that'll withstand temperatures up to 500ºF and last for generations and generations.

    10. A Chemex coffeemaker for the best dang pour-over coffee you (or your grandma) have ever tasted.

    11. A vintage-style bread box that'll fit rye-ght in with the rest of your adorable decor.

    12. A mortar and pestle to grind items into a fine paste or powder because fresh ingredients make a really big difference in the kitchen! Plus the clean up is a breeze!

    13. A three-pack of reusable beeswax wrap, which'll keep cheese, bread, and vegetables fresh — no plastic required.

    14. A manual coffee grinder to unleash the freshly ground flavor of your beans for years to come.

    15. A manual pasta maker with a hand crank that'll allow you to make homemade pasta with an authentic Italian taste, especially since this machine was made in Italy.

    16. A stovetop popper so you'll never need to blow away the burnt popcorn smell from your microwave again.

    17. A French-style rolling pin bakers (and French people?) swear by.

    18. A cast-iron skillet to help you discover the versatility of this long-standing kitchen essential. This one's pre-seasoned with vegetable oil for a natural, non-stick finish.

    19. A stainless steel analog kitchen scale so you can portion foods and ingredients without dirtying up a bunch of measuring cups. Just lift off the weighing bowl and rinse for easy clean up!

    20. A pie bird designed to release the steam from your pie during baking, ensuring your pies cook evenly with a crispy crust. Now that's something to sing about!

    21. A classic can opener made with a carbon steel blade, because apparently millennials don't own them, and should.

    Some old-fashioned products are good to keep in the past!
