Kitchen Tools and Gadgets

The right kitchen supplies will increase the efficiency of your cooking and make for an overall more enjoyable experience in the kitchen. To ensure you invest in the right pieces, start by considering basic tools such as spatulas, can openers and mixing bowls (and what you might need in that area), and then survey your specific set of culinary needs. Browse the plethora of products below to find your ideal kitchen gadgets!

What tools should every kitchen be stocked with?

Basic kitchen tools include things like a can opener, vegetable peelers, spatula, grater, cutting board, colander, masher, knife set and kitchen shears. For baking and cooking essentials, invest in mixing spoons, mixing bowls, measuring cups, hot pads, oven mitts, and a whisk.

What additional items might I consider?

Outside of the basics, it’s possible you’ll benefit from a stand-alone timer for cooking, or a thermometer to check your Thanksgiving turkey. Ceramic peelers prevent vegetables and fruits from bruising while peeling, and a mini food chopper are the perfect accessory for recipes that call for fine dicing. Grind herbs and spices with a mortar and pestle, zest lemons and limes with a zester, dish ice-cream with a scoop or add freshly chopped nuts to your meals with a nutcracker.

What should I keep in mind when purchasing kitchen tools?

Kitchen tools are aplenty, so do make sure you need the tools before purchasing. Think about how often you cook and what you’ll be cooking to decide on the right pieces. In addition, remember that you’ll have to store all these items: Don’t buy more than you have a place for.

Solid Scissors: These appear solid and strong. They seem to be well made and I believe they will be easy to use and clean. They appear to be well designed for the job they are meant to do. I bought it for a gift, So I haven't actually used it, but would definitely purchase one for myself based on the look and feel.
