The 1 Thing Kourtney Kardashian Can’t Stand to Have in Her Home

The Kardashian-Jenner clan is among the richest and famous families in the world. As such, it is not surprising that their homes are also way more extravagant than most people can dream of.

Kourtney Kardashian — the oldest of the Kardashian-Jenner siblings — lives in a big mansion in Calabasas, California, that reportedly cost $18 million. It has six bedrooms, a home theater, a swimming pool, and a garage that can fit four cars.

However, despite the fact that Kardashian can afford to buy many impressive things, there is one common item that you will not be able to find in her house.

As seen in an article from Architectural Digest, Kardashian’s kitchen is extremely spacious and no doubt the perfect place to cook for a big family. Yet, while it comes with plenty of appliances, Kardashian refuses to have a microwave in her abode.

In a blog post in 2017, Kardashian shared with readers that she absolutely does not like heating up food in this commonly-used appliance. The mother of three wrote: “One kitchen appliance I never use is a microwave. If anything needs to be heated up, I prefer to use the oven, stovetop or toaster oven instead.”

She went on to reveal that her decision is based on the health and wellness of her family.

“When I had Mason, I did a lot of health-related research and decided to get rid of my microwave when I read that toxins from plastic containers can be transferred to food when reheated (this applies to BPA-free plastic containers too),” Kardashian said.

Although she could switch to using mostly glass containers, Kardashian decided that it was best if she got rid of the microwave completely, adding: “I didn’t want to risk having something reheated in plastic when I wasn’t around.”

This might not come as a surprise to fans since Kardashian is known for being very health-conscious. On her lifestyle website Poosh, she often talks about ways to improve one’s mental and physical well-being as well as natural products to use on one’s body.

As with her decision to ditch the microwave, Kardashian once shared that she started being aware of her health after becoming a parent.

“I use only organic foods for [my first child, Mason], and it made me think about what I put into my body too,” she said. “I couldn’t sit around eating cookies and expect him to eat vegetables. I fell in love with salmon, which I hardly ever ate before. And I used to eat salads, but now I’m having side dishes like spinach and carrots too. It wasn’t just because it’s good for me – I’ve discovered I really liked eating that way.”

Kourtney Kardashian has been accused of going too far as a parent

While many parents out there want the best for their children, Kardashian has been accused of being over-the-top with her health-conscious lifestyle.

Last year, she and her sister Kim Kardashian West had a fight on Keeping Up With the Kardashians over the Candyland-themed party they were throwing for their daughters. While Kim Kardashian West wanted to have a lot of candy at the party, Kourtney Kardashian wanted to include other healthy options, such as sugar-free candy.

A lot of viewers took to the internet afterward to criticize Kourtney Kardashian. Some people even accused her of going too far with her lifestyle and promoting eating disorders to her children by limiting the kinds of food they can eat.

However, Kourtney Kardashian clapped back by emphasizing that she believes in “moderation,” saying: “I didn’t want an overload [at the party], and I wanted some healthier options too. I am actually shocked that people are so unaware of how harmful certain foods can be. Wow.”
