Essential Kitchen Tools

Kitchens are often epicenters of clutter. Countless pots and pans fill the shelves, a host of cooking utensils lay scattered around the stove, some knives may be sitting on the counter. However, amid all that clutter, home chefs often find themselves with many things that they never use.

Essential Kitchen Tools

Nancy Singleton Hachisu It’s past 1 am here in Japan, so what am I doing up? Well, one thing for sure, I’m not going to be contributing thoughtfully to the passionate tool discussion. I will say one thing (or two). I used to buy little do-da’s at Williams Sonoma (both here & in the States), but most of those cute, but essentially ineffectual tools are packed away somewhere now. You are so right. A few really good pieces in the kitchen are essential. And readers, head well the advice about knives. My Japanese husband is our resident master knife sharpener, but I know I need to learn the art of sharpening as well. My sons can. I just have to stop and take the time while my husband does his thing. (Too busy.) Knives should be like razors. Otherwise, forget it. And truly, a super sharp knife is your best tool in the kitchen.

When we started our cooking journey, we were full of confusion and frustration as we began our search for the best cookware and essential kitchen tools for minimalist cooks. When you start with no knowledge, the learning curve is immense.

As in our last guide, we’ve offered a few product recommendations in each category based on personal preferences, experience, and editor and reader reviews. Most of these tools can be bought on Amazon, but a terrific and cost-effective resource for basic kitchen tools is a restaurant supply store. Just buy the best quality you can afford!

More than ever these days, you can buy really cheap kitchen gear. This is great because it means anyone should be able to get all the essential bits of equipment they need, no matter what their budget is. One thing I never realized until now was how big a problem bad or inappropriately sized equipment can be. I think it's probably one-third of the reason cooking in this country is in the state it is; for me, that's a really big deal. So the fact that you can buy yourself an extra third of success in the kitchen in terms of cooking and consistency is really quite cool. I'm giving you a list of the bare minimum items you need to have in your kitchen to be a well-rounded, efficient cook. When it comes to things like knives, food processors and wooden chopping boards, it really is worth scrimping, saving or borrowing money to get the best equipment you can afford. You'll be much better off with three good-quality knives—for example, a 12-inch chopping knife, a 12-inch serrated carving knife and a 6-inch paring knife—than you will be with a whole set of rubbish knives that won't last long at all and will make your chopping worse. When you're buying a knife, check that it's a good weight, the blade is nice and rigid and doesn't bend and the handle feels good in your hand. I personally like I.O. Shen knives, Victorinox, Henckels and Sabatiers. When I'm buying frying pans for my home, I always go for really good-quality nonstick ones. When it comes to saucepans, as long as they've got sturdy, thick bottoms, I think they're all about the same. All the other stuff on the list you can spend as little, or as much, money on as you wish. Get the list now!

I love that after buying good kitchen tools, decades will pass before needing to purchase again. Wusthof knives bought 14 years, a lost of heavy use ago still phenomenal. Bought a new knife for the first time since just last year ’cause we were in Japan (sorry Wustof chef knife- you’re now secondary.) Good pots- only bought once over a decade ago. The cast iron pans are only getting better, too. Mortar & pestle – same. Couldn’t live without, either. Nothing creates the texture and releases the juices and oils like the m&p. We have 5 sizes, mostly because the larger ones are hard to hold when washing for one in the household. Even the electronic kitchen scale of over a decade’s age is still working beautifully despite much abuse and use. For me, I’d also add a huge stock pot because bones take up a lot of space (our 12qt is our smaller stock pot). And a good sharpening stone. Didn’t like having to depend on someone else to sharpen my knives, so with a little research and practice I’ve now found it easy to get an incredible edge. Thanks for the post getting us to give a little recognition to our kitchen beloveds. T
