When it comes to cooking, you should not only focus on the quality of your food, but on the utensils as well. After all, without the right utensils, you won’t be able to cook your food properly, no matter how fresh it is. So to help you, I will give you some advice about the necessary utensils for your kitchen.
Advice on the necessary utensils for your kitchen
No matter what your kitchen looks like, here are the top eight utensils you need to make the best dishes:
1. Sharp knives and cutting board
I’m sure we’ve all had this problem before: Cutting or slicing ingredients with a flat knife and a cutting board that marks easily. By using a sharp and quality knife, you don’t have to worry about ugly cuts and waste time trying to make it perfect again. It’s also safer that way, so you don’t accidentally cut yourself trying to cut your ingredients over and over again!
2. A non-stick pan
To save yourself the hassle of your ingredients sticking to the pan, choose something with an easy-to-clean surface that won’t hold your ingredients down. It is also ideal for those on a diet as you can fry food in the pan without any oil, very similar to using a power air fryer!
3. Measuring cups and spoons
Another essential for those on a diet or baking, measuring utensils will help ensure that you put the correct amount of ingredients in your mixture, provide a more accurate calorie count and that the results will end up being delicious. It also helps keep your food supplies in check, as you can put more food in your bowl than you realize if you don’t use measuring cups!
4. Kitchen gloves
Whether you are cooking or baking, kitchen gloves are essential for your safety. You don’t want to burn yourself while taking your cake out of the oven, and you don’t want oil to splatter around you and create marks on your hands. It’s also best to invest in an apron to prevent your clothes from getting messy as well.
5. Can opener
Let’s face it. We ALL use cans, be it tuna, canned fruit, or instant food to ease our hunger. So to help make things easier, opening cans saves time and effort while keeping you safe. You don’t want any metal bits in your food, nor do you want to cut yourself trying to open the can. In addition, most cans are also bottle openers as well, making it worth the investment.
When cooking noodles or sifting dry ingredients for baking, you will need a strainer to help separate lumps or liquids for, even more, a quality result. It helps to save the time and effort of trying to remove hard bits or water manually. They save a ton of time while ensuring a good job!
For mixing things, it can be eggs, cake batter, or any food and mixtures, a whisk is efficient for those who do it manually. It’s big enough to grab everything without forming lumps, and you don’t have to worry about bits sticking, unlike using a spatula or rubber spoon.
I hope this list of the essential cooking utensils you need has helped you! So don’t wait any longer and start investing in these quality tools today.
