Favourite things 2019
Welcome to the official “Nik’s Favourite Things” of 2019!

I like to do this every year to celebrate the products and companies I discovered throughout the year – some of these I fell in love with so much that I became affiliates of them, others are just things I use around the house! I am not being paid to recommend anything.
Feel free to add your favourite products of 2019 in (No self advertising, we will delete these!)

Everten Kitchenware

I started working with Everten a few months ago, and I am amazed by their huge online range of kitchenware products, their passionate customer service and also how their prices are considerably cheaper than everyone else.
If you’re after high quality knives, pans etc – check them out. everten.skinnymixers.com

Whole Home Travel Bags 

Brooke, our amazing Admin – designed and made these bags for travelling with your Thermomix.
They’re the best bags on the market, check them out. Discount code SKINNY10 http://bit.ly/SMWholeHome

Traeger Timberline 850 griller/smoker

My Traeger

I have only had my Traeger for a few months now, but I am OBSESSED with this thing.

I have wanted to buy a smoker for years, but the idea of learning charcoal and wood heat regulation really daunted me.
The reason why I went with the Traeger in the long run was because a friend told me that “Its the Thermomix of the smoking world”. He was right!
You set the temp and it does all of the hard work for you.
I will absolutely be writing recipes for smoking and BBQ in the new year, so keep your eyes peeled.
You can find them at BBQs Galore in Australia

Clever Curl 

If you’re a girl or guy with curly hair, and you aren’t getting the most out of your natural curls, check out Clever Curl. I was always very off put by the “curly girl” method because it just seemed too overwhelming, with way too many different products out there to try.
This Australian company has taken the guess work out of it with their simple, complete range of Curly girl approved hair products.
My curls look AMAZING now! https://www.clevercurl.com.au/

Wusthof Trident Classic Ridged Cooks Knife

My most favourite kitchen knife EVER – I have so many Wusthof knives, nearly the whole range, but I use this one 80% of the time.
I love it so much that I even bought one for the admin girls for Christmas presents.
Its currently out of stock at Everten thanks to me, but here is what it looks like if you want to hunt it down.
I truly believe you should own at least one very good knife: https://www.everten.com.au/wusthof-classic-ridged-cooks-knife-20cm.html

WOLL frying pans

Woll Frypan
Woll Frypan

I was lucky enough to be sent some WOLL frying pans to try out from Everten and I have fallen in love with them ever since.

They’re the best pans I have owned.

They are German made, extremely high heat and scratch resistant and have a really cool removable handle so they can go in the oven easily. They have both standard and induction compliant. everten.skinnymixers.com

OXO Good Grips Julienne Peeler from Everten

Julienne Peeler

With summer and the launch of The Healthy Mix IV I have found myself turning to my Julienne peeler weekly!
I think they are a must have kitchen item, especially if you love the Vietnamese Beef Salad.


I got a Meater 6 months ago when I started writing The Healthy Mix IV and it was what enabled me to get such perfect results with the Vietnamese Beef Salad!
If you haven’t got yourself a meat thermometer, I highly recommend this one.
Its awesome because its bluetooth, and the app takes literally all of the guess work out of cooking meat. https://thermomix.com.au/products/meater

Stilla all day waterproof liquid eyeliner

I think I have finally settled on this being the best eyeliner all round thanks to the price and how easy it is to use. It also doesn’t leak like the others I have tried in the past. https://www.mecca.com.au/stila/stay-all-day-waterproof-liquid-eye-liner/V-007364.html#q=stilla+eyeliner&start=1

Mazda CX 8 

I know I said this last year, but I love this car so much. If you need a 7 seater diesel, I cant recommend this car highly enough. It is SO beautiful to drive and the features rival those of the luxury European equivalents. I have the Asaki model.

Macadamia Milk

I started using Macadamia Milk this year in an effort to reduce my dairy intake but maintain my caffeine intake. I think its the BEST cows milk substitute on the market.
I will update this list as I think of things
