It doesn’t take a chef or a kitchen expert to tell you that you’ve got to have enough basic kitchen accessories so your kitchen may survive any particular hectic household day in the kitchen. Whether you are on your cooking experiment with your daughter or preparing for that weekend favorite recipe, you have to make sure that your kitchen is well equipped with the right tools of the trade so you can “do your thing” in the kitchen.
If you may not know, every kitchen accessory is an investment. Thus, planning to buy some kitchen accessories that are not available in your kitchen should be carefully and well thought out. But it is important though that you must first have the basic accessories first before you consider adding some other tools and appliances. A typical mother or a home owner may even consider this to be a fun experience as you get to decide what beautiful and useful tools and accessories you need to add to your very own kitchen. It may be a matter of a serious investment to undertake or merely a fun experience to deal with, it is equally important to make that list first before stocking your kitchen.
However, you have to make sure that your list entails all the basic (and even including your luxury dream kitchen accessories that you’re dying to have) tools and appliance that every household kitchen needs or should want to have. The list may even include those items that you already may have in your kitchen. That way, you can assess whether that unit is still in good condition or should be in need of repair or replacement.
The Kitchen’s List
Knives are a very important part in the kitchen. It is the sole tool that is being used very often during cooking and meal preparation so one should not live working in the kitchen without it. Its versatility in use has required every kitchen to at least have three types of knives. The first is the chef’s knife which is used to make major cutting and chopping especially in meat, large fruits, or large vegetables. The second is the paring knife which is used to do small jobs such as peeling fruits and vegetables. The last is the serrated edge knife which is intended for slicing breads, tomatoes, and some meats.
A cutting board
Surely, you don’t want to do the chopping and cutting of specifically large foods, meat, or fruits on your tiled kitchen surface because that will definitely bring damage on your tiles or granite. Cutting boards are very vital for all your cutting and slicing needs.
Pots and pans
… and not just any regular pots and pans. They should be of good quality to withstand the intense cooking. There are actually various types of pots and pans so you have to be very clever as to prioritizing which type you are to use more often in the kitchen.
Measuring cups and spoons
Every cooking recipe entails accuracy especially in their ingredient content so it is best to have your very own measuring cups and spoons. It is advised to even get at least two sets of each measuring cups and spoons so you do not have to continually wash one set and then use it all over again.
They are important for your stirring and mixing activities while cooking.
You may even opt to avail of the following but if you are clever enough in your own kitchen, you can still do without them. If your budget allows you, you can have some of these goodies in your kitchen:
o Potato masher
o Rolling pin
o Bottle Opener
o Meat Tenderizer
So if you feel like your kitchen is an entire majestic wild jungle but is lacking of enough wild animals, why not make this list and make sure you can have all the right tools of the trade you need for your cooking requirements.
