Bestselling Cookbooks & Kitchen Products

Back in April you may remember that I featured some of the most popular kitchen items purchased by Brown Eyed Baker readers through Amazon. It was fun for me to see what types of things that readers here enjoy most, plus I got a lot of great feedback on the usefulness of the post, so I have decided to make it a quarterly feature here on the site. I will break the items down into the most popular cookbooks and then the most popular kitchen products.

There is definitely a seasonal spin on what has risen to the top over the last three months, as you’ll see the most popular cookbook and product are both ice cream friendly. In addition to that, I am over-the-moon excited to see how popular kitchen scales have become. If you have been reading Brown Eyed Baker for any length of time, you know how much I value my kitchen scale and how important I believe weighing your ingredients is.

Have fun browsing and Merry Christmas in July! It’s never too early to start a Christmas list, either for yourself or friends and family!

    I agree that kitchen scales are invaluable. I have had some “interesting” results though when I’ve been guessing. It’s sometimes rather good fun! 🙂

    Great post…with almost all the 4 books on my wishlist! I’ve recently got kitchen scales, and it makes me wonder why it took me this long!!

    Uh I have one of those scales! Baking illustrated is my top 1 on my wish list. I really like this post. I’m glad you are making it regular

    I’ve been wanting to read the Julia Child Kitchen Wisdom book! But it’s not much a cookbook, right? I want the original cookbook too! xxSAS

    I dream a little dream of having my own artisan stand mixer for christmas! 🙂 Nice post.. I’ve been wanting the Bread Baker’s Apprentice forever.. I need to do some book shopping…

    Great list! I have several of these things and love them. On my wish list this year is a rice cooker. 🙂

    The KitchenAid ice cream attachment really is brillant! You can have an ice cream maker without taking up any more counter space. 🙂

    I love all of these items! Great picks!

    I too always weigh my ingredients…would feel really strange to just scoop a cup of flour.

    Fun list of books and gadgets. I can’t wait to get David Lebovitz’s book.

    I have a Cuisinart ice cream maker so I don’t need the KitchenAid ice cream bowl. What I could use is their sausage making attachment. I have Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom. I got it at the flea market for $2.00. It has little paragraphs that are invaluable in cooking and baking.
