1,437 Kitchen Tools and Knives

For those who are always on the lookout for the best and brightest kitchen technology, there is always some new kitchen tool on the must-have list.

When stocking your kitchen, it’s important to differentiate between the have-to-have tools and the wish-list tools: You might want that cheese grater, turkey baster and high-tech meat thermometer, but you need a cutting board, knife set, measuring cups and mixing bowls. These tips will help you make those kitchen tool decisions. More

Get the basic kitchen tools first.


Even though you might really want that nutcracker or zester, hold off: There are some things you need more. If you're just starting out, there are several essentials: a can opener, a spatula, a cutting board, a knife set, kitchen shears, a strainer, a whisk, measuring cups and spoons, and mixing bowls. When cooking meat, a meat thermometer, tongs and a basting brush come in handy, while bakers would enjoy a rolling pin and cooling racks.

Determine what specialty tools and knives you need.


If you already have the basics covered, then go for more specialized, task-specific tools. Vegetable peelers, cheese graters and zesters help the peeling, grating and zesting process go easier, while a cheese board and breadboard make entertaining a breeze. During the holidays, a turkey baster produces an even more delicious Thanksgiving meal, while cute snowflake- or tree-shaped cookie cutters create festive, fun cookies. When it comes to knives, bread, paring and carving knives are useful additions, if your block set doesn't include them. End the end, don’t forget: If you buy it, you store it, so make sure you have plenty of room for all your purchases.
