7 Must Have Kitchen Tools That Will Make Preparing Meals a Breeze ...


I started cooking in the kitchen at a very young age, and as my love of cooking grew I discovered there are some must have kitchen tools that make preparing a meal much easier. When I was little I would bake cookies with my grandma and mom, which started my love of baking and cooking. I knew then that I needed a bowl, a baking sheet, measuring cups and spoons, and an electric mixer. Things were pretty simple then, and things are pretty simple now too. Only a few of these must have kitchen tools are fancy, most of them are essential tools that any cook or baker would find necessary to have in their kitchen.

Knives and Cutting Board

A set of knives and a cutting board are two of the most essential must have kitchen tools. Without either of these it is very hard to do much in the kitchen. I actually know a lot about knives and cutting boards from the summer I spent selling Cutco knives to earn extra money in college. What I learned from that experience, aside from the fact that I am not a salesperson, is that a good set of knives will make preparing meals go much quicker. I am not suggesting that you go out and buy an expensive set of knives, but having a sharp chef’s knife, serrated knife, and paring knife is necessary. To go along with your knives you also need a cutting board. You want to make sure that you have a wood or synthetic cutting board, not glass or marble. I almost cringe when I see people cut on glass or marble because it dulls the blade instantly, which makes your set of knives useless until you get around to sharpening them.
