Of all the celebrity cooking series on Instagram, Courteney Cox’s is arguably one of the funniest. Not only is she relatable (she also barely knows how to cut a vegetable), her cooking is serious target too. But between those goofy jokes and cabinet porn, there’s something else that’s hard to look away from: Cox’s kitchen gadgets. As one would expect given the nature of their videos, they are perfectly on the line between aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly – a win-win situation for any home cook.
Fortunately, she doesn’t shy away from showing off them. And while the Friends The actress doesn’t always reveal the source, she often provides close-up shots (and sometimes even one-off videos) of the products she loves and uses most. Sure, they’re nothing groundbreaking – as Cox himself admits, in real life she’s not Monica Geller. But if you want to put your own kitchen gadgets together in one simple and beautiful collection, there are few better places to get inspiration. Ahead, a list of their most popular and similar products so you can follow their lead.
We only include products that are independently selected by the editorial staff of The Zoe Report. However, we can receive a portion of the sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
Fully lined pans
While it’s rare for a brand name to make it into Cox’s videos, All-Clad’s stainless steel pots and pans keep popping up. She uses the iconic company’s products to make everything from cacio e pepe to chicken parmesan, and it’s not hard to see why. They are slim, look great after years of use, and last forever (here from personal experience).
Nice cutting boards
The 57-year-old always has one or two cutting boards on her counter, which fit perfectly into the aesthetics of her minimalist kitchen. She clearly leans towards black versions, but if you want to create a Cox-inspired cooking line, any aesthetically pleasing option will do.
Extra sharp knives
Cox may joke that she’s not good at cutting food, but that doesn’t mean she takes her knives any less seriously. Almost all of their tutorials include a sharp-looking chef’s knife – a necessity in any home cook’s kitchen, regardless of skill level.
Of course, Cox doesn’t just use any old bowls to mix and serve their food. The actor keeps beautiful, often creamy white, ceramic bowls ready to stir and store – a great way to make cooking more fun (and less messy). Make sure you stock up on several different sizes so that you have everything you need for different types of recipes.
It’s always refreshing to see people admit they’re * a little * lazy in the kitchen, and Cox definitely isn’t shy about that fact. Because of this, she often relies on things like garlic presses and chopping tools to chop onions. Who has time to dice vegetables?
Cox may not have Monica Geller’s cooking skills, but it does prove that she is similar to her longtime character in other ways. The actress posted a video showing an intense level of organization in her kitchen – complete with a custom utensil drawer where each piece has its own place. (Targets, Amirit?) While this might not be the easiest function to copy, you can follow suit in other areas, like the glasses that filled your pantry.
