Off Grid Kitchen Appliances

What are the most used off grid kitchen appliances that we love on the homestead? The kitchen on An American Homestead functions a bit differently than your average modern kitchen.  

Let’s be honest shall we?  Most nice homes have large kitchens stacked to the brim with the latest electric appliances and gadgets but rarely  get used to prepare food from scratch. Most American eat a majority of their meals out at restaurants. 

Here on this homestead, we love home cooking and Jaimie gets a lot of use out of our appliances and tools of the trade. 

Our top 5 most used off grid kitchen appliances:

  1. Coffee Cone
  2. Propane Stove
  3. Cast Iron Skillet
  4. Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven
  5. All American Pressure Canner
The above list are the off grid alternatives to electric modern kitchen appliances commonly used today. They are just as effective even if they lack the flare of a digital world. Jaimie makes wholesome and nutritious meals with these items every day.

In addition to the 5 appliance items listed above, Jaimie showcases 3 electric items that she uses for food prep that we run on our solar power. Our solar power is limited so any items that generate heat cannot be used.

Jaimie’s Top 3 Electic Solar Powered Gadgets

  1. Whisper Mill
  2. The Magic Bullet
  3. Kitchen Aid Immersion Blender

The grain mill helps us in making flour for numerous cooking and baking projects. The Magic Bullet is loved by all during the heat of the summer for making fruit smoothies! And the immersion blender is wonderful for making heart warming soups in the cold winter months.

Not every one wants to live off grid but these items help make our little homestead kitchen produce amazing home cooked meals.

  7. We have been living completely off grid for some years now. Instead of a food processor I use a KitchenKing Pro. Lots of handy attachments for whipping, spinning lettuce, chopping, julienne slicing, plain slicing, egg separating. I’ve had mine for 13 years and it doesn’t take up a ton of space. Also a Whirly POP for the best popcorn!
