mavis-butterfield-one-hundred-dollars-a-monthI spend a lot of time testing out new recipes in my kitchen, but I’m kind of OCD when it comes to cleaning up after myself. Enter my favorite kitchen towels EVER. These bad boys wipe up spills and dry dishes like a champ. No annoying fuzz left behind and no crazy streaks left on all my dishes. They’re tough as nails and bleach up crisp and clean. I’m pretty sure you’re going to love them as much as I do!


One lucky reader will win  1 dozen Professional Grade Kitchen Towels.

For a chance to win, simply leave a comment below and let me know what your favorite kitchen item is? It could be as something as simple as your kitchen curtains, or as awesome as your KitchenAid mixer.

Just answer that one question and you’re entered to win. Life’s pretty complicated sometimes, so I like to keep things simple around here.


1 entry per person/ip address. If you cheat, you will totally be disqualified.

This giveaway ends Thursday, December 5th, 2013 @6 pm PST and the winners will be announced in the Wednesday, December 6th, 2013 edition of Mornings with Mavis.

  64. It’s gonna be a hard choice between my Kitchenaid mixer, my cast iron skillet, or my digital kitchen scale!

  65. My favorite kitchen item is a garden hod that my Mom gave us last year for Christmas, we keep it right at the kitchen door, bring in our stuff from the garden and rinse it right in the kitchen sink then rest it right in the kitchen dish drying rack for the veggies or fruits to dry.

I’ve used it multiple times every week for the past 20 years and it’s still going strong! ;-) I gave my kids the Christmas hint of kitchen towels (for their present to me) so I REALLY hope I get lucky and win. These are much nicer than they can afford. Thanks, Mavis, for doing this!

  71. My grandmother’s long wooden spoon that I use for stirring tea. It will always be in my kitchen!

  72. Rita Kerr says:

    My new favorite kitchen item is a grater zester. I’m not sure what I did without it. It works so much better and is easier to clean than my old four-sided grater. It works quickly on lemons for zest. Shredded cheese is beautifully delicate and looks amazing on salads and pasta. As we celebrate Thanksgiving, spiced apple cider is a given tradition. Wish you were here to sample our warmed cider made with freshly grated nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger. Mavis Elf, if you want to do a Widget for it, here is the name on Amazon: TulasiLeaf Grater Zester Professional Fine Hand Held Stainless Steel Kitchen Tool. : ) Be blessed!

  78. My dishwasher, hands down.

  79. MsDropofrain says:

    wow, really hard to choose only one item… I think it is my bread maker. I use it not only for making bread but also to make dough (my hands are too weak now for kneading).

  80. Hi Mavis, My favourite kitchen item is my Tala mixing bowl – simple I know, but I love it. My mum gave it to me for my birthday and every time I use it, it makes me smile. Pauline

  81. Beth Johnson says:

    Happy Wednesday- countdown to Christmas!
    My favorite item in the kitchen has to be my paring knife- it is sharp, has a wooden handle and a good point- and I am used
    to it so am less likely to have it slip. I wash it after each use and put it in an old (but pretty) mug on the windowsill so
    it is always ready for action!

  106. My teapot from my mom!

  107. My favorite kitchen item is the cuisine art stick blender. I found it on your website and followed the link to amazon and purchased it. I love that thing. It makes tomotoe soup a breeze.

  108. Dishwasher !!!!!

  109. Ruth Ward says:

    My ceramic knives. I bought myself a ceramic paring knife, that came with a potato peeler on sale at Sam’s Club about 3 years ago. I love that knife. It is super light and retains it sharp edge. I have since bought several more for myself and family members. All my family members who have received those knives also love them. Next would be my bullet coffee grinder. There is nothing better then freshly ground coffee.

  142. The first thing that came to mind for a favorite kitchen item was my dishwasher… Truly, though, I think it is a toos-up between my pressure cooker and my microwave. TIMESAVERS!

    PS- Does anywone know how to getg the rubber smell out of new gaskets, pressure plugs, and lift pins. I gave my cooker a makeover and it works great but I’m now limited to foods that sit above the cooking liquid and don’t use it for gravy, etc.

  143. pam jacobs says:

    the best thing in my kitchen is the coffee maker. what a lifesaver!

  225. my half sheet pan because it usually means cookies!

  226. I love using my iPad in the kitchen. I have an easel made for a picture frame that I use to hold my iPad away from any water that might land on the counter.
    I use the app Paprika to organize my recipes, to search out new recipes, to plan my meals and make my grocery list. I love not having to stop and print a recipe before I head to the kitchen and I can make the text large enough to see it without my glasses. If I have a question about the recipe details, it’s not problem to refer back to the site where I originally found the recipe for more details.
    Plus, I have a cheap set of battery operated speakers that I keep in a drawer so I am ready to watch cooking videos or listen to tunes or audio books while I cook.

  227. Electric tea kettle! We have a cuppa several times a day…

  228. Lightweight cast iron pan

  229. I would have to say my Knives, and then my really nice set of silverware. the thing i do use the most in my kitchen is my towels. but alas i am cheap and bought the sorta crappy costco bundle.

I use apple juice in it, with a tea bag of apple spice… it is the perfect steamed apple cider- which is a must, several times a day, every day, year round!

  236. I <3 my mortar and pestle!

  237. Michelle S says:

    This is totally lame, but I love my manual can opener… sorry, but it’s true – can’t live without it. It cuts like butter and WAY better than the electric one I use to have.

  238. Coffe mugs!

    • I mean, really..can you choose just one? :)
      There are so many options for kitchen appliances :-)

      The answer for today would have to be my newly purchased Excalibur dehyrator. I highly recommend dehyrating food as an option to keep the food we buy longer. The food tastes great too..

  276. Cobalt blue Kitchen Aid mixer. My husband took my twin boys to pick it out for me when they were 3 years old. We named it “Big Blue” and it has seen its fair share of cookies, cakes, & breads. Love it!

  277. I have this long blade, very thin filet knife that I love. I use it for all sorts of peeling and cutting. I believe it came in some standard knife block and I cannot find another like it. I don’t know what I will do if I lose it.

  327. My Favorite is my Kitchen Aid Mixer and Attachments!

  328. Nancy from Mass says:

    Has to be my coffee maker! use it every day.

  329. Oooh, I’ve been wanting to buy some of these! Hope I win. My favorite kitchen item is my chef’s knife. I am always horrified when I cook at other people’s houses and their knives are SO DULL. My guy keeps mine nice and sharp for me, and it’s a total kitchen workhorse :-)

  331. crockpot. all. the. way. You do have the best giveaways!

    My crockpot…so i dont have to worry about dinner its already on…:)

  360. My Vitamix!

  361. My coffee pot is used everyday, but with the high expected to be a balmy 8* today I’d have to say its my woodstove for the remainder of the winter.

  362. It’s probably a tie between my Kitchen Aid mixer and my Vitamix. I use both daily :)

  363. Andrea Hinds says:

    My corkscrew!!!!!! lol

  364. I would have to say my grind and brew coffee pot!! It was a christmas gift 2 years ago to myself when it hit a price so low, I had to treat myself.

  374. My whisk. I use it more often than my hand mixer for cooking (sometimes from scratch). And since cooking — from scratch or otherwise — reminds me of my late mom I get something nice to eat with the bonus of good memories:-)

  404. Kimber Morrow says:

    OK this is a tough question because I could list a lot of stuff that I LOVE in my kitchen… (french press, tea kettle, knives, juicer, grain grinder…) but IF I had to narrow it down to my favorite it would have to be my crock pot. Not so much because it is the greatest in the whole wide world but because it SAVES me a lot of time in the kitchen.

  405. My collection of vintage Pyrex bowls and bakeware! Thank you for this opportunity – I love your blog!

  406. suzanne hissung says:

    My HH, when he cooks a meal he hand washes everything he’s used.

  415. My favorite thing is my Kitchenaid mixer, hands down. Especially now that I have the pasta roller attachment!

  416. My mini cuisinart.

  417. Definitely my blendtec blender. We have a smoothie every morning with produce from our garden.

  418. Microplane or garlic press

  419. As silly as it sounds I have to say it’s my dozen metal sandwich spreaders. I open their drawer and smile. We were always running out and needing to wash them so I bought enough to almost never be out again. I bought them at Sur La Table. The sales lady thought I was on something I’m certain. She questioned me heavily and had a strange look on her face.

  420. Wendy Boehm says:

    My gas stove! I waited years for it and love it!

  421. My “most favorite” item currently is my Ball Jam & Jelly Maker. Makes jam in a “jif” and makes nice stocking stuffers and small gifts for Christmas giving.

  422. The dishwasher all the way! I love being able to hide all the dirty dishes rather than cluttering up my counter (of course I find lots of other things to clutter the counter with!).

    I so could use some new dish towels since my husband seems to think my towels are his rags for the garage. :-) Anyone else have this issue?

  423. Dawn Arnold says:

    My favorite kitchen item is my Pampered Chef jar opener. I have gotten weak I guess and without it couldn’t open my darn jars.

  430. I love my dishes, they are a glass colbalt blue. My mom got them for me over 10 years ago and my husband has not even managed to break any of them!!

  431. My favorite kitchen item is my toaster oven. I probably use it at least once a day.

  432. I’d have to say my Keurig….we use it everyday. But, after reading everyone else’s comments, I feel like I should write something that makes me look hip and clever, educated, or a better cook. Mortar and pestle? Really?

  433. We remodeled our kitchen and went from total electric to propane.
    So my favorite thing is my gas stove.

  449. My favorite kitchen item is a tie between my crock pot and my kitchen aid, both of which have gotten a lot of mileage since I started reading your blog!

  450. My favorite kitchen item is my iron skillet. It has been in our family for over 51 years!! My mother received it as a wedding gift and passed it down to me 9 years ago when I got married.

  451. Caroline R. says:

    My Keurig!

  452. I love my Nutrimill grain mill. Wheat berries into whole wheat flour, rice into rice flour, popcorn into cornmeal. So much fun!

  453. My two-slice toaster! The toaster oven just doesn’t make toast as good.

  460. Random person named Melissa says:

    Well an everyday fork of coarse….. I need one for my salads and steaks!!

  461. My favorite kitchen item is a beautiful wood cutting board my son made me one year for Christmas. He was in jr high ( he is now 27!) when he made it for me. I use it nearly daily, and it still looks as good as the day I unwrapped it. It’s my true treasure.

  462. My crockpot. I am on my 5th one!

  463. My favorite kitchen items are my pink gooseberry Pyrex casserole dishes – they belonged to my great grandmother and I think everything tastes better in them!

  464. My spoonulas…you know spoon/spatula combos…I have them in different sizes and they get everyday use :)

  465. My rice cooker.

  466. I take my dishwasher for granted until it gives me problems. Thanks to my handy husband, repair is not usually a problem.

  467. I think my pampered chef apple slicer. It is so quick, easy, and sturdy. Love It!

  468. My crockpot is probably my fav. Followed by my toaster oven. My kitchen aid mixer is a close 3rd.

  469. my “new to me” pressure canner!

  470. On days like today it is the water that comes from the tap. Our pump temporarily froze up and it makes me grateful all over again to have running water!

  471. Sarah Ninneman says:

    My good ol wooden spoon

  472. My cutco knives!

  473. My favorite kitchen item is my cast iron dutch oven.
    OMG I love it, from stove to oven and cooks so evenly.

    I could cook only in cast iron!

  474. It’s a tie between my huge LeCreuset French oven and my 6-quart Kitchen Aid stand mixer–one makes amazing soups and stews; the other can handle every single double-recipe batch of cookie dough I throw its way.

  475. My santoku knife!

  476. My favorite kitchen item is my Keurig! I love, love, love this coffee maker. As I sit, I drink a nice hot c\up of coffee. It’s great because my husband and I both drink different types of coffee. So, we’re both happy!!!! I hope I win these towels. They are on my wish list for my daughter, ever since you recommended them a while back. She is a professional chef in San Francisco and never spends money on herself at home. I know she would love these.

  477. My Advantium.

  478. My favorite kitchen item is my stick blender. Love this thing! I use it and the cup that came with it for smoothies, and I love making blended soups of all sorts. I can grind with it, too, using that little cup/food processor attachment. This one small item has seriously taken the place of several appliances in my kitchen!

  479. My favorite kitchen item is my small food processor, super awesome i pie crust size!

  480. I love my Pampered Chef rubber scraper.

  481. I love my electric tea kettle. I use it to boil water for coffee and tea several times a day.

  488. This is a tough one. I have to say my pizza stone. Or my coffee pot.

  489. Lisa Scott says:

  491. My favorite kitchen item is my kitchen scissors.

  496. Brooke Moulton says:

    My dining room table. Salvaged from a neighbor’s yard it’s an early 20th century harvest table that my handsome hubby and I refinished/repaired (before the babies) just in time for our first hosting of Thanksgiving. Now it’s got fingerpaint, glitter, and wine bottle stains — Love it more every year.

  497. My dutch oven I received as a Christmas gift last year.

  498. Lon McClure says:

    I love these towels! I have some but could always use more!!!

  499. My crock pot.

  500. I would have to say my microwave.

  501. My french press… enough said. :-)

  502. My potato masher. It was my grandmothers and makes me think of days-gone-by when we would cook together. Plus I love me some mashed potatoes with butter and garlic!

  503. My Pampered Chef Ice Cream Scoop! I will not use any other!

  504. Oh, man, this is TOO hard! I love all my kitchen equipment/gadgets, but the one that always makes me smile when I take it out to use it is my Microplane grater – best $12.95 I ever spent! I can have fine lemon zest, fresh parmesan, or freshly-grated nutmeg whenever I want. What a great tool.

  505. I love my silicon roller and mat

  506. Chrisitne Hagen says:

    I love my Kitchen-Aid. We use it just about every day. Sometimes multiple times.

  507. My bottle opener.

  513. My Cuisinart food processor, hands down!

  514. My trusty vegetable peeler! A must have for our vegetarian house.

  515. Randy Haylett says:

    My favorite thing in my kitchen is a V-shaped plastic thing that has teeth on it. You can wedge any bottle any size into the v-teeth lined shape and it will grasp that container and by holding on to the container with both hands and turning container to the left it opens said container. It’s wonderful since I have trouble gripping things.

  516. My favorite Kitchen item is my kitchenaid. or my Aebilskever pan.

  517. Ellen in Clackamas says:

    I saw someone list the Pampered Chef ice cream scoop…love mine! And have given many away as gifts. But since I really shouldn’t use mine too much (!) the next, most used favorite is my coffee pot

  524. My Favorite Kitchen Item is my Dutch Oven…..

  525. My Ziggy coffee cup! Got to wake up if I’m going to be working in the kitchen. Ziggy in his pj’s and night cap, eyes shut, mouth open, tongue out and coffee cup spilling onto the counter in front of his face. Makes me smile as I enjoy my morning eye opener!

  526. I love my Vitamix. I use it to grind grain.

  530. My espresso machine!

  531. Dishwsher, I wouldn’t go in the kitchen if I didn’t have one.

  532. I think I’d have to say be bamboo spoons! They’re great for everything: mixing, flipping, stirring, etc!

  533. My Thermomix – it grinds, chops, stirs, cooks, steams, cooks, kneads, blends, stirs and weighs. Not cheap, but it’s given me a new-found love of cooking and spending time in the kitchen. Yesterday I used it to mill grains and knead a loaf of bread, make vanilla bean paste and yoghurt. Today it has already made the not-husbands porridge and I’ll use it soon to de-seed a pomegranate in a couple of seconds.
    Merry Christmas, Mavis. Thanks so much for your wonderful blog!

  534. My stainless steel mixing bowls.

  535. suzanne lowrie says:

    Definitely my crockpot!

  536. I have a lot of kitchen gadgets so it’s hard to say which is my favorite…it’s a toss-up between my food processor and my bread machine I think. I get the most use out of them, but some have said their crock pot and that’s another goodie! And, thanks to blogs like this, I get a lot of ideas about how to use them on a daily basis! :D
    Thank you for your blog and all the great ideas you share. I was intrigued by the title “One Hundred Dollars A Month”, but I’m hooked thanks to your great posts.
    God Bless and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
