What Every Kitchen Needs
If you are just starting out or just want a well-stocked
kitchen, there are many questions to be answered in what you
need in your kitchen. When just starting out, you may only want
some of the basics. If you have been cooking for quite a while,
you may be interested in some of the new items available.
Everyone needs a good set of pots and pans. These include
saucepans, Dutch ovens, stockpots, and skillets. Saucepans can
be used for everything from warming soup to steaming rice. Dutch
ovens are mainly used in the preparation of meats, stews and
soups. Stockpots are simmering stocks for soups and are great
for cooking pasta. If you are from the south, iron skillets are
widely used for frying.
Cooks of all experience require a set of tools. Measuring cups
are a must as are measuring spoons. Mixing bowls are necessary
if you are going to be preparing a dish with multiple
ingredients. Toaster, mixer (either hand held or a stand), and
graters are other necessary tools. You will probably want a can
opener. You may prefer the electric kind but you may want to get
a manual one in case the electricity goes out. I have lost my
electricity and wanted to open a can but only had an electric
can opener. First thing I did was purchase a manual can opener
so I could eat! Don't
forget the slotted spoons, spatulas, and
You will definitely want some storage containers for your
scrumptious leftovers. Plastic containers work great, but make
sure they are microwavable.
Cutlery is something that all cooks need. A high quality set of
knives will simplify your preparations. There are quite a
variety of knives available. Paring knives are invaluable when
peeling and cutting vegetables. Chef knives are used for many
purposes. They can be used for chopping onion, mincing garlic
and many other slicing duties.
If you don't want to destroy your counter tops, I would suggest
a nice cutting board.
There are many other tools that would be nice to have, but not
necessary. A mini chopper is a great tool to have in the kitchen
instead of having to manually chop everything. A vegetable
steamer is another nice kitchen tool. You can steam anything
from vegetables to rice in these steamers.
The most important thing not to forget in your kitchen is
SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE DISHES!
