Must-Have Kitchen Tools

Find out which tools every home-cook should have.

To make your kitchen an enjoyable, easy place to work, make sure your tools and ingredients are handy, your sink is cleared out and your work surfaces are clean. Like any good workspace, your kitchen needs good tools.

1. Knives

Those butcher blocks full of knives look nice on your counter, but you really only need three: a serrated knife, a 9- to 10-inch-long chef’s knife and a paring knife are good basics. Knives are one thing you don’t want to buy without holding first; they should feel natural in your hand. Buy the best knives you can afford—they will last for many years.

2. Cutting Boards

Two cutting boards are ideal—one for raw proteins and one for cooked foods and produce—to avoid cross-contamination when cooking. Cutting boards made of polyethylene plastic are inexpensive, durable and easy to clean. Look for ones that are dishwasher-safe.

3. Bowls

A set of 3 stainless-steel mixing bowls that fit inside one another is a space saver. They are inexpensive, versatile and will last a lifetime.

4. Measuring Spoons & Cups

One full set of measuring spoons and two sets of measuring cups. One set should be for measuring liquids—those measuring cups usually have handles and pour spouts—and one set for measuring dry ingredients that can be leveled off.

5. Cookware

Nonstick skillets are great tools for beginner cooks but remember never to use metal utensils on nonstick pans—scratched surfaces negatively affect their nonstick surfaces. You’ll want both small and large nonstick skillets. You’ll also want small and large stainless-steel skillets, as well as small and large saucepans and a stockpot.

6. Instant-Read Thermometer

Found in nearly every supermarket meat section or with other kitchen gadgets, an instant-read thermometer is essential for making sure meat and poultry are safely cooked and done to your preference.

7. Utensils

Heat-resistant nonstick spatulas, vegetable peeler, rolling pin, meat mallet, a slotted spoon for draining, a wire whisk, tongs, a few wooden spoons, ladle.

8. Colander

One that has feet and is the right size for your family (think about how much pasta you need to drain at once). Also make sure it will fit in your sink.

9. Bakeware

At least one 9-by-13-inch baking pan, roasting pan and rack, pizza pan, baking sheets, 3-quart rectangular and 8-inch-square glass baking dishes.

10. Storage Containers

Storage containers aren’t just for storing leftovers, but any unused ingredients that come from making dinner.

11. Slow Cooker

Also referred to as a crock pot. Buy one that’s the right size for your family. A great tool for someone on the go: a lot of recipes can be thrown together in minutes before work and are ready to eat when you get home.

12. Electric Hand Mixer

Baked goods are so much easier with a hand mixer. You can get one for about $15.

13. Blender

Handy for blending up a smoothie or salad dressing.

KITCHEN APPLIANCES

Immersion Blender

An immersion blender (also known as a stick blender) is used to blend or puree food in the container its is being prepared in.

We use our immersion blender all the time. From blending soups and sauces directly in the pot, to whipping up homemade whipped cream for dessert, to easily making mayonnaise for hard boiled eggs, our recommended pick is a versatile two-speed blender from Conair that’s a cinch to use (and is even easier to clean). Plus, it’s very reasonably priced.

Immersion Blender (Premium)

If you’re looking to purchase a multi-speed all-in-one immersion blender with attachments, look no further than the Breville all-in-one processing station.

It comes with a variety of useful attachments that are all ergonomic, high quality, and very easy to clean. They turn your immersion blender into an extremely versatile tool. We love this package deal!

Kitchen Scale

For precisely measuring raw food (and coffee beans, in my case) a small, lightweight, scale is needed. Look no further than American weigh scales digital pocket scale.

With a bright LED display, highly incremental measurements in US and metric units, and compact size, this scale is perfect for most weighing functions you’ll ever need.

Blender

If you’re a fan of making smoothies, sauces, dips, or soups, you’ll likely want a powerful blender instead of using a food processor every time.

Our pick is the Oster Versa blenderthat comes in at less than ½ the price of a Vitamix (our premium pick and the de facto standard for powerful blenders) and performs just as well.

This is a stylish blender with a 1,400 watt motor that pulverizes anything you can throw at it. This is a great purchase for the price, and we highly recommend it.

Blender (Premium)

Our premium pick is the Vitamix Professional series 750 blender. If you’re in to blenders at all, there’s not much to be said about Vitamix. They’re the best, and they command a premium price.

You have likely seen Vitamix’s in commercial restaurants because of their power and ease of use and cleaning. If you’re looking for the best of the best, the Vitamix is a fantastic pick.

Blender (Budget)

If our recommended pick is still a bit more than you’d like to spend for a blender, the Ninja Professional Blender is a great budget alternative.

Coming in at only $80, this powerful blender will do much of what its higher priced counterparts will do at a fraction of the price. It’s a great buy on a budget.

Other Kitchen Essentials

Cooking Tools & Kitchen Utensils

Spatula

A spatula is a small cooking implement with a wide, flat, flexible blade that is used for mixing, spreading, and turning.

You may not think that a spatula can be much improved upon, but you’d be wrong! Tovolo has done a wonderful job with their line of stainless steel and silicon cooking implements. This is a high quality spatula that is heat resistant up to 600 degrees fahrenheit and won’t melt if you leave it against your pot or pan (which we’ve all done!). This small kitchen item is a joy to use and is very reasonably priced for the quality.

Stirring Spoon

Going back to the wonderful design of Tovolo products, their stirring spoon is just as good as their slotted spatula.

With their trademark stainless steel and silicon construction, it will last for a very long time and won’t melt in different places (like other products do). Instead of stocking up on several spoons, choose one that is durable, heat resistant, dishwasher safe, and won’t scratch cookware or pans. This stirring spoon from Tovolo one will do great!

Slotted Spoon

This large spoon, featuring slots or holes for draining liquid, helps to make cooking easier and safer. It is perfect to use when removing something from a pan while leaving the yummy juices behind. We love that the Oxo Good Grips Silicone Slotted Spoon is safe to use on our non-stick cookware.

Tongs

For easily flipping meats and vegetables, a good pair of tongs that can handle all kinds of different sized foods is a must. It’s important for them to have silicone tips to prevent scratching and a high degree of heat-resistance so they don’t melt away after frequent use.

This pair of tongs from Zyliss is beautifully designed. You can operate them with only one hand, and everything is done ergonomically and with sturdy construction. We have two of them for some reason, but one is all you need!

Ladle

A ladle is essentially a very large, long-handled spoon. It is used for serving liquid dishes like soups, stews, or sauces.

This ladle from Tovolo is strongly built with a unique combination stainless steel and silicone, which means that it won’t melt if you leave it in your pot or pan or place it in the dishwasher.

Oven Mitts

Oven mitts are used in order to protect your hands from being burned when transferring hot food to and from the oven. No longer will you have to wrap your hand in a tea towel and try not to spill your dish (or get burned) as you pull it out one handed.

Our recommended oven mitts from Kitchen Elements are made of silicone with a cotton interior and are dishwasher safe. Plus, they can be cleaned very easily and even look stylish! Whether you choose to purchase our recommended pick or another option, make sure you have quality oven mitts before beginning any high-heat oven cooking. A good pair of oven mitts is a must have for any kitchen.

Trivet

A trivet is a heat resistant pad that you place hot dishes on, so you don’t burn your table. We love Bambri’s bamboo trivets because they’re both functional and fashionable and do what they’re supposed to do.

Instead of ugly cloth trivets that get stained easily, pick up these beautiful bamboo trivets that will last a long time and are easy to clean.

Splatter Guard

A splatter guard is a device that is placed on top of skillets or sauté pans during high heat cooking in order to stop splattering hot oil and food from coating your stovetop.

Let’s face it, cooking can get messy. How many times have you had to clean your oven top and cupboards from splattering grease and oil? With this fine mesh splatter guard from Progressive International, these clean up days are over. It will fit most pans, is simple to clean and much sturdier than other splatter guards out there, and even has feet so you can set it down after use without leaving a mess on your countertop.

Thermometer

A quality meat thermometer is a must if you often cook meats and want to stop guessing at when they’re done.

With this ultra fast and accurate thermometer, you’ll have a very accurate temperature reading in just 4 seconds. As the #1 best seller meat thermometer on Amazon, this has scores of 5 star reviews and only comes in at $25. Great buy.

If you find yourself roasting foods often in the oven and want to have continual temperature readings, we also recommend the Thermoworks ChefAlarm. It’s wonderful for precisely measuring the temperature of Thanksgiving turkey, for example, or for getting accurate water temperature readings for sous vide cooking.

Preparation Tools & Essentials

Chef’s Knife

If you’ve only ever used a cheap chef’s knife for your cooking needs, switching to a high quality knife will be a night and day difference. Seriously, when we upgraded to a high quality chef’s knife we couldn’t believe how much sharper, heavier, and easier it was to cut and chop with the quality knife.

And since you can use a chef’s knife for all of your cutting needs (and use it every time you cook), one high-quality purchase will serve you for years to come.

We’ve tested several different chef’s knives with different price points and designs, and though we used to recommend the German-made Wusthof chef’s knife, we now recommend the Global G2 8-Inch Chef’s Knife. It’s an absolute workhorse; it comes at a very reasonable price, is lighter and easier to handle and maintain than the Wusthof, and we’re sure it won’t disappoint you.

Chef’s Knife (Budget)

Coming in much cheaper than our recommended or premium options, the Victorinox 8 Inch Fibrox Pro Chef’s Knife is a steal of a deal. With a five star Amazon rating over 4,500 reviews, it’s the only chef’s knife you should consider purchasing under $40. You simply can’t go wrong with this starter chef’s knife.

Cutting Board

One of the most basic tools you need in your kitchen is a good cutting board. You’ll be using it every time you cook (just like your chef’s knife) so it’s important to choose one that’s durable and well designed.

The OXO good grips cutting board is dishwasher safe and is built from odor-resistant polypropylene – meaning it will last a long time. Pick this inexpensive cutting board up and you won’t regret it.

Cutting Board (Premium)

Now if you’re looking for the Ferrari of cutting boards, look no further than this Proteak edge grain cutting board. If you haven’t tried a cutting board like this before, it’ll be hard to understand just how different – and how much higher quality – it really is. But we can confirm that upgrading to a cutting board like this will bring you joy in the kitchen every time you use it.

You have to take better care of this cutting board than our plastic recommendation; by cleaning it immediately after use and avoiding the dishwasher. But this item is unique and will last you a long time, so if you’re ready for an upgrade from the usual plastic cutting boards most home cooks sport nowadays, this one gets our vote.

Can Opener

It’s not often that a piece of cookware brings you joy every time you use it. But that’s exactly what this can opener from Kuhn Rikon does! This is a 5-in-1 can opener that pulls tabs, crowns caps, unscrews tops, and opens jar lids and cans safely, easily, and cleanly.

We have one of these beauties in our kitchen (Mealime green, of course) and it is an absolute pleasure to use. We actually look forward to opening cans, believe it or not. Pick up this multi tool today and you won’t regret it (just read all the great reviews!).

Measuring Cups

Measuring cups are used for precisely measuring the volume of liquid or solid cooking ingredients. You may not think that measuring cups can be anything special. Any set will do, right? Well as it turns out, great design can extend all the way down to measuring cups. This stackable set of measuring cups from Kitchenmade has all sorts of smart features that eliminates the small frustrations that measuring cups often bring about.

With high quality one-piece stainless steel construction, a thin profile and pouring lip, nesting capabilities, and a 5 star rating over 1,000 reviews on Amazon, you can’t beat the quality of these measuring cups. Pick these up today and never replace your measuring cups again.

Measuring Spoons

Measuring spoons are used to precisely measure smaller amounts of liquid or solid cooking ingredients than measuring cups. This set of 5 stainless steel measuring spoons from Prepworkscontains measurements of ¼ tsp all the way up to 1 tbsp. They’re magnetic and nested so you can put them away easily without losing any of them (which can often happen for the smaller spoons).

They’re also designed to be double sided to accommodate both liquids and solids and are dishwasher safe. After testing different measuring spoons, we settled on this set ourselves and use them in our kitchen every single day. Highly recommended!

Mixing Bowls

For mixing together salad dressings, spice rubs, marinades, sauces, and even for storing leftovers, a set of high-quality mixing bowls is a must.

This 9-piece mixing bowl set from Luminarc can be used to do pretty much anything and won’t absorb stains and odours because it’s made of glass. Plus, these bowls stack easily for simple storage.

Colander

For draining pasta or washing vegetables and salad greens, a colander is an essential piece for your minimalist kitchen. This 5-quart stainless steel colander from OXO Good Grips is well designed and has ergonomic non-slip handles and “feet” so it doesn’t slip all over the place.

This is an item you’ll use forever and couldn’t break even if you tried, so pick up this 5 star reviewed colander and forget about buying another in your lifetime.

Vegetable Peeler

A vegetable peeler can really speed up your preparation time, whether you’re using it to peel potatoes, carrots, or any other vegetables.

We love this pirahna “Y-Peeler” from Kuhn Rikon because it’s so simple. No multi-tasking here, but this is a high quality peeler that will stand the test of time. It’s dishwasher safe and ergonomically designed, just like all of our other recommendations.

Potato Masher

Although a potato masher is a great tool, it usually has a very inconvenient and bulky shape that makes closing your drawer difficult. We chose this flip potato masher from Prepara for a few important reasons.

First, it “flips”, which means that it’s not a bulky tool to store in a drawer, like most potato mashers are. Second, it’s of high quality stainless steel (with no BPA) and is dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Third, it has only 5 star reviews on Amazon and is very highly recommended. You can’t go wrong with this quality potato masher.

Whisk

A whisk is often one of the most used items in your kitchen, so it’s important to have one that’s ergonomically made. This 9-inch whisk from OXO Good Grips fits great in the hand and is perfect for whisking together salad dressings, sauces, eggs, desserts, and much more.

Plus, it’s dishwasher safe so you don’t have to worry about the handle melting or warping in the heat.

Salad Spinner

A salad spinner is your best friend when it comes to having a crisp salad. To prevent your greens from going soggy, you’ll need to dry them and “spinning” them is by far the easiest way to do it.

Made by OXO Good Grips, this salad spinner can be used by simply pressing the button on the top. It’s very easy and simple to operate, and even features a brake and locking mechanism for easy storage.

We especially love this salad spinner because the strainer basket can be used for draining pasta and the bowl for serving. It’s a great multi-purpose tool!

Grater

One thing we’re against here at Mealime is inefficiency. So what does this mean, exactly? It meals choosing multi-purpose tools and avoiding single-purpose tools whenever possible. Instead of purchasing different types of graters, a zester, and a chiffonade, why not choose one tool that can do it all?

This 7-in-1 box grater from Cuisipro can grate citrus, fine, coarse, ultra-coarse, parmesan, shave, slice and even has a ginger grater. It’s made of high-quality stainless steel and will last a lifetime.

Shears

For cutting up a whole chicken and other meats, to vegetables, to stripping herbs, to even cutting the stems off of flowers, these kitchen and herb shears from OXO Good Grips are fantastic.

They’re extremely sharp, heavy duty, and comfortable. The blades even separate for easy cleaning. With 200 reviews and a 5 star rating, these shears are a fantastic value and deserve a spot in your kitchen.

Citrus Juicer

Sometimes it’s the seemingly insignificant tasks in the kitchen that provide way more hassle than they should. Juicing a lemon or lime is one of those tasks!

It’s difficult to do, your hands get juice on them, and the seeds often fall into your food. That’s all solved with this quality citrus juicer from Prepworks. This one includes printed measurements so you know exactly how much juice you’ve squeezed. It fits lemons, limes, and oranges, and makes squeezing juice a joy. Plus, it’s dirt cheap!

Garlic Press

We still have this garlic press from Kuhn Rikon but use it less than we used to. If you don’t like playing with garlic and want the quickest solution, pick up this highly rated garlic press and you’ll be good to go. But if you don’t mind crushing and chopping your own garlic, you may want to pass on this item.

We’ve gone back and forth with garlic presses over the years and are currently on the “non-essential” train. Basically, a garlic press is nice to have and does make crushing garlic easier. But it’s really not that difficult to cut / press your own garlic with just your chef’s knife, and it’s oddly satisfying to do so as well.

Paring Knife

A paring knife is a kitchen knife with a short blade that can be used for a multitude of tasks. You can peel and chop with it, and the small tip is great for fine work like coring strawberries (or similar).

Our recommendation is the Global GS-38 3 1/2 inch paring knife. It’s Japanese made, of the highest quality, has a 4.5 star review on Amazon, and will last a lifetime. This workhorse of a knife deserves a spot in your kitchen.

Paring Knife (Budget)

For a much cheaper alternative, the Victorinox 4 inch paring knife is a great buy.

Coming in at less than $10 yet still full of Swiss engineered quality, it’s a wonderful purchase on a budget.

Bread Knife

A bread knife is a serrated knife that is typically used for (wait for it…) slicing bread. A high quality bread knife can also be used for slicing delicate items like cakes or pastry’s.

Our recommendation is the Global G9 8 3/4 inch bread knife. Like our other recommended knife picks, it’s of high quality Japanese construction and enjoys a strong rating on Amazon.

Bread Knife (Budget)

A cheaper, yet high quality alternative (that we use most frequently in our home), is the Victorinox 10.5 inch bread knife.

At under $35, this is a wonderful purchase that you won’t regret.

Honing / Sharpening Ceramic Rod

If you’re going to purchase a quality chef’s knife (which you should) you’ll want to take care of it so it lasts a lifetime. It doesn’t take many tools or much time to maintain a quality knife, and this 12-inch ceramic honing rod from Messermeister is one of those tools.

Contrary to popular belief, most honing rods don’t actually sharpen your blade. Rather, they realignyour knife’s edges quickly and efficiently. Because this honing rod is made of hard ceramic, however, it is capable of both sharpening and honing your knives. It works especially well with our recommended chef’s knife pick (the Global G2), because Global knives are made of harder steel than their German counterparts.

You can still purchase a sharpener (shown below), but this ceramic honing rod is all that we use to maintain our Global knives, and it works like a charm.

Knife Sharpener

Our recommended sharpener is a fantastically well-rated sharpener from KitchenIQ that has a near 5 star rating over 3000+ reviews and costs only $6.

You really can’t go wrong with this sharpener, and we recommend you purchase it even if you hadn’t planned on purchasing a sharpener. It’s cheap and effective. What more could you want?

Stainless Steel Skillet

A stainless steel skillet will likely be the workhorse of your kitchen. You will be using this cookware for frying, searing, sautéing, and browning, among other functions. For this reason, it’s important to pick a high quality stainless steel skillet that you can use for a lifetime.

We like Cuisineart’s Multiclad Pro line for all of our cookware, and their skillet is no exception. It is made of high quality stainless steel and even has a “helper” handle that makes it easier to carry heavy loads without tipping. Plus, it comes at a fantastic price for the quality. Highly recommended.

Stainless Steel Skillet (Premium)

All Clad’s take on the stainless steel skillet is, as with all of their other products, high quality and a joy to use.

We’ve used our All Clad stainless steel skillet for years now and can tell that’s it’s going to continue being used for years to come. Highly, highly recommended.

Sauté Pan

A saute pan is different from a skillet in a couple of important ways. It has a wide flat bottom and vertical sides that generally go up much higher than a skillet’s flared sides do. This makes it easier to cook sauces and sear and braise meat than a skillet.

We recommend Cuisineart’s Multiclad Pro series sauté pan because of its superior value relative to our premium alternative. It won’t let you down and will last a lifetime of cooking.

Sauté Pan (Premium)

Our premium pick is All Clad’s 4-quart tri-ply bonded sauté pan. Just like the other All Clad picks in this article, we chose this pan because of its high quality construction, fantastic reviews, and made in USA quality guarantee. You can’t go wrong with All Clad.

Small Saucepan

For small portion cooking of soups, stews, pastas or sauces, a lightweight and easy to handle saucepan is necessary. Cuisineart’s Multiclad Pro 1 ½ quart saucepanis our recommended small saucepan pick for your minimalist kitchen.

There’s not much more to say about the Multiclad series after promoting them in our other recommended cookware. Suffice to say, this small saucepan is fantastic value and is a high quality item that will last you as long as your cooking career lasts (which we hope is a very long time!).

Small Saucepan (Premium)

Our premium small saucepan pick is All Clad’s 1 quart tri-ply bonded sauce pan. You’ll notice by now that we recommend All Clad products for most of our premium recommended picks. Their made in USA high-quality construction and beautiful design sets them apart from their competitors, but their prices are set to match their quality. Choose this small saucepan if you want the best quality cookware that money can buy.

Medium Saucepan

Just like most of our recommended cookware options we suggest purchasing from the same line, this 4-quart Multiclad Pro series saucepan from Cuisineart is our recommended pick for your medium saucepan needs.

It’s made of solid stainless steel and aluminum and has been designed to pour easily (a big frustration saver!). It is dishwasher and oven safe and can even be put under the oven broiler.

Medium Saucepan (Premium)

Our premium medium saucepan pick is by All Clad. It is made in the USA from stainless steel and has nothing but glowing reviews from its 5 star rating on Amazon.

Our recommended pick will likely be enough for all of your cooking needs, but if you’re interested in upgrading to the best, we highly recommend this 4-quart medium saucepan from All Clad.

Large Pot

For cooking large dishes like soups, stews, pastas or sauces, you’ll need a large pot to handle the volume.

When it comes to stainless steel pots and pans in general, we’re big fans of Cuisineart’s Multiclad Pro series. They’re extremely durable and cook evenly, thanks to their solid stainless steel and aluminum construction. And because they’re made in China (rather than in the USA, like our premium brand recommendation), Cuisineart is able to keep costs down for a decidedly premium product.

This large pot is perfect for cooking pasta, large dishes, or even for making your own broth. It is dishwasher and oven safe (even on broil) and was designed with simple pouring in mind. Pick up this “steal of a deal” pot and relax knowing you purchased a high-quality item at a fantastic price.

Large Pot (Premium)

For a made in USA high-quality large pot that you simply can’t go wrong purchasing, look no further than All Clad.

This 6 quart tri-ply bonded pot will last a lifetime and you’ll never tire from using it – take it from us that all All Clad products are a joy to use in the kitchen.

Cast Iron Skillet

Cast iron skillets have been workhorses in kitchens all over the world for over 2,000 years. Modern cast iron skillets are made from heavy cast iron and pre-seasoned (so food doesn’t stick); with impressive heat retention abilities these skillets are favoured for use on both the stovetop and oven alike.

You’ll never need another cast iron skillet in your lifetime as these are insanely durable and can cook anything. The best part? Our recommended cast iron skillet is made of high-quality materials in the USA and is very reasonably priced! You can’t go wrong with Lodge’s 12 inch cast iron skillet.

Grill Pan

Grill pans have gained popularity in recent years. And why not? They’re great for those without a barbecue (or who don’t want to grill outside in the winter) but who still want those nice grill marks on their food.

For summer dishes like burgers, roasted salmon, meatballs, and marinated vegetables, a grill pan is a must. It creates tantalizing grill lines in your food, just like a barbecue does. But it’s much easier than barbecuing because you don’t have to leave the comfort of your kitchen and it only requires a stovetop element – no propane, gas, charcoal, or intense cleaning necessary.

We used to recommend Lodge’s cast iron grill pan, but we found ourselves not using it because of its weight and how difficult it was to clean. We now recommend this non-stick 11-inch grill pan from Calphalon and we couldn’t be happier. It’s easy to use, affordable, and a snap to clean.

Baking Sheet Pan

A baking sheet pan (or sheet pan, baking tray, baking sheet) is a flat, rectangular metal pan that is used for roasting and baking food in the oven. From quickly roasting cauliflower, broccoli, or squash to whipping up a tasty treat if you’re inclined to bake, a high quality baking sheet pan is an essential item for a minimalist kitchen.

This 100% pure aluminum sheet pan from Nordic Ware is commercial quality and a large size – perfect for spacing out your food and getting that delicious browned effect. This sheet pan is easy to clean, lightweight, sturdy, won’t bend or buckle like cheap alternatives, and will last a lifetime.

We use two of these sheets in our kitchen while testing new recipes. After plenty of use, they still look great and perform perfectly.

Muffin Pan

A muffin pan is a baking pan with 6 or 12 built-in cups. Besides making muffins, they are great for individual quiches and on-the-go breakfast cups. We recommend the Oxo Good Grips Pro Muffin Pan because the Swiss-engineered, ceramic-reinforced, two-layer coating allows for easy food release. The heavy-gauge aluminized steel promotes even heat distribution.

Casserole Dish

A casserole dish is a large, deep dish with high edges that is used for baking or serving. For those lazy times you want to throw a one-dish meal into the oven (like lasagna or a casserole), a quality casserole dish is a must.

This casserole dish from HIC is made of fine white porcelain and is broiler, microwave, and dishwasher safe. That means that a lazy one-dish meal also is simple to clean. What could be better?

Broiler Pan

A broiler pan is a rectangular metal pan for use under the high-heat broiler in the oven. It is much thicker than a typical baking sheet pan so it doesn’t warp under the high heat, and contains grooves and a draining pan that sits below to catch any fat that drips through (so your oven doesn’t get stained).

Broiling is great when you want your food to get a nice brown crusty top. Our experience with this broiler pan from Range Kleen is that it is sturdy and easy to clean (you can even throw it in the dishwasher). It can handle broiler heat (500 degrees fahrenheit or more) without warping, feels very high quality, and is something you’ll never have to replace.

Plus, this pan is super inexpensive. Pick one up today and you’ll likely never use it enough that you’ll have to replace it.

A hand blender is great for people who love to cook. It makes cooking easier and simpler. They are very much helpful for a person to work with a blending device as it makes the whisking, blending, chopping, etc. easy.

Hand blenders are not that easy to break and have high durability. Moreover, the products are quite easy to clean a hand blender or a traditional blender apart from a liquidiser or a food processor.

HAND BLENDER BUYING GUIDE

1. CORD OR CORDLESS

While you think of buying a hand blender, one of the most important things to consider is the plug-in ability of the device. If you have a plug-in option in your kitchen, then you can always go for a corded hand blender.

However, if not, then you must choose a cordless hand blender. I prefer cordless ones as they are much more efficient and are easy to use. They are great for travelling as well.

2. SPEED SETTINGS AND CONTROLS

It is very much essential to check the speed control settings of the blender you are opting for if you want to get the best results. The blenders that come with variable speed settings will let you freely adjust and control the speed according to the requirements.

However, most of the ordinary blenders come with a speed controller between 2-5 settings preferably (low, high, medium) to whisk slow or fast according to the needs. Apart from the speed setting option, also look for the on/off button to have a convenient use of the blender.

3. MOTOR

I believe the most important thing to consider while looking for a hand blender is the motor power and efficiency. Hand blenders with a weaker motor won’t do the blending work as great as the powerful ones.

I suggest you look for a blending device with a motor capacity of 250 to 500 watts. You can also check out the list of products mentioned below.

4. DESIGN

Hand blenders come along with several colours, designs as well as sizes to attract the buyer’s eyes. Thus, before you opt for a device, you should check out the comfortability factor and see how easy it is for you to hold the product.

You can also find blenders that can be wall-mounted using a hook that is durable enough. This takes less space in your kitchen and can come handy whenever you need it.

5. ATTACHMENTS & STAINLESS STEEL BLADES

While you are looking for a hand blender, you should be aware of the attachments as well as the SS blades it comes with. With the help of hand blender, you can do all the different tasks such as blending, chopping, as well as whisking within a few minutes.

However, to do all the tasks, you need to have proper attachments such as chopper, beaker, blender, stainless steel blades, and whisker. The blender you choose must have suitable, thick, sturdy, and strong blades even if you don’t get all the attachments.

6. BRAND

If you want to invest your hard-earned money on a product, then you must be aware of the product and the brand beforehand. Furthermore, buying a blender from a high-end brand will assure you of having good quality and powerful device.

You can see several brands available in the market that comes with some of the industry’s best quality hand blenders, which you can opt for any time. Also, remember to check the authenticity of the brand.

7. MATERIALS

Well! A blender is just an immersion rod runs on a motor. Thus, it is essential to have a good quality, sturdy, and reliable blender.

Always try to look out for a blender made up of ABS food plastic, plastic materials, or stainless steel materials. The cleaning process becomes comfortable with these materials.

However, I suggest you opt for ABS food plastic than regular ones. They are a lot more durable.

8. LOCKING SYSTEM

There are a few blenders that come along with buttons which you need to press to complete the blending process. While you will find a few models which have a turn on/off press button.

People may find it convenient to use, but there are a few who feels it a bit uncomfortable to work with.

9. WEIGHT

Considering the weight of the product is a must. You must want it to be light in weight so that you can comfortably use the product while blending.

10. BUDGET

Before you look for a product, set a budget on your mind. This way, it will be helpful for you to choose a hand blender that suits your requirements within your given budget.

Remember, not to compromise the quality just for a few bucks.

11. WARRANTY

Electronic products are always prone to damages as well as defects. Thus, you need to be extra careful while you are choosing it.

Look out for the warranty period given by the manufacturers. A reasonable period of warranty will make sure you have a hassle-free use of the product.

You can have suitable assistance whenever required. Thus you can have fuss-free usage.

12. REVIEWS & RATINGS ONLINE

Nowadays, while buying a product, it can be beneficial to check out online reviews and ratings. You must go through the customer reviews of your selected product.

This will help you in choosing the best hand blender. Customer reviews will make sure you understand how the product is working for others.

It will prevent you from wasting your money on a useless product.

HAND BLENDER OR TRADITIONAL BLENDERS – WHICH ONE IS BETTER?

1. TYPE OF FOOD

Nothing can beat the traditional blender when it comes to adaptability. They are great for blending all kind of food items such as soil greens, nuts, hot soup, desserts, etc.

However, a hand blender can be a good option as well for doing all the modern tasks.

2. SPACE AND SIZE

Both types of blenders are a great addition to your kitchen. For a few individuals, one blender can be enough; however, at the same time, a person may need both the types of blenders.

They can use it for different purposes at different times. Hand blenders are space-saving and can come handy when in need.

Think about what you want to cook and which type of blender will be suitable for that.

3. AMOUNT OF FOOD

The amount of food is not what you can easily measure every time. Can you say whether you are making a smoothie for one or several people?

Hand blenders are a great option to make the right amount of sauce, puree, smoothies, infant food. Traditional blenders work efficiently in such a situation, but a hand blender does the best.

4. QUALITY OF BLENDING

Are you looking for a blender to have thick, creamy smoothies? If yes, then you should always look out for the blending quality of the product before purchasing.

Usually, traditional blenders aren’t capable enough to make thick smoothies. They don’t have speed control option and thus, not the right choice for making smoothies.

Hand blenders are great for making a puree, sauce, smoothies, etc. without much hassle.

HOW TO USE HAND BLENDER?

It is very much easy to use a hand blender as all you need to do is to follow specific steps to get the best results.

Firstly, you need to take good care of blender assembling. Both the lower and the upper part should be assembled correctly to avoid any mishap.

The position of the blender should be perfect for getting the desired result. If you are using a large vessel, you can then move the blender freely to get the desired thickness.

1. Cut the ingredients into small pieces and put them in the bowl for blending purpose.

2. Don’t fill the container, fill up to a moderate level to make sure the ingredients aren’t spilling out.

3. Attach the required accessory to your hand blender and plug in the cord.

4. Select the speed accordingly. I suggest you start with the highest speed and then gradually slow down.

5. Now move the blender until you get the desired consistency of the mixture. You can follow the vortex motion to have the perfect blending.

6. Make sure you are washing the hand blender thoroughly before and after using to enhance the durability of the product.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)

1. ARE HAND BLENDERS AND IMMERSION BLENDERS THE SAME?

Well! Both are the same type of products and are used for blending purposes. Hand blenders are also known as the stick blenders.

2. IS IT POSSIBLE TO CRUSH ICE USING IT?

No! It is not possible for a hand blender to crush ice. The engine may get damaged in that case.

Thus, I feel it is good to avoid crushing the ice with a hand blender.

3. ARE GLASS OR PLASTIC BLENDERS BETTER?

This entirely depends on the user’s choice. But, I would suggest you opt for the ABS plastic hand blenders.

They are much more durable and are user-friendly as well.

4. WHAT IS A GOOD WATTAGE FOR A BLENDER?

Well! You should always opt for a hand blender with a power ranging from 100 to 500 Watts. This depends on your budget as well as your needs.

Best Refrigerators Buying Guide

Here are additional considerations to make before buying a refrigerator. We want you to think wisely for the best refrigerator that is the best fit for your family or household.

Size

Before buying a refrigerator, consider its dimensions. Will it fit through your front door? Will it take too much space in your kitchen? Will it fit through the reserved space meant for installation? Will it store enough food for you until the next time you buy groceries? Use a measuring tape to measure up your space for installation, as well as all the doors where the appliance will have to go through.

Arrangement

Consider how your food compartment and freezer is laid out. If you’re one who doesn’t eat frozen food on a regular basis and considers their diet on fresh food, then it is ideal for you to buy a top freezer refrigerator. If you want to keep an equal amount of both fresh and frozen food, a side-by-side refrigerator is more likely for you to buy.

Shelving

From wire shelves to glass shelves, they can be available in refrigerators bought online. Check your ideal refrigerator if they are adjustable, spill-proof, and such.

We have given you additional guides to choose the best refrigerator, so make sure to use them. Now check the questions that are often asked by many in relation to the use or purchase of their refrigerator. This may help you look for the one you want.

Do I need a stabilizer for my refrigerator?

Generally, no. Most refrigerators are stabilizer-free or have a built-in stabilizer. But should your area be frequented with a power outage or you have large size refrigerator, it is best to check if you would need a separate stabilizer.

What does toughened glass mean?

It means that the glass racks inside your refrigerator can bear heavy items and not break. It means you can put your bowls of salads and baked goodies without worrying if the compartment can carry it.

What is the power consumption per year?

This all depends on how you use your refrigerator. The typical annual power consumption ranges from 180 to 220 units.

Does my refrigerator need yearly maintenance?

Yes, just like most appliances, refrigerators needs to be check at least once a year. Ask the manufacturer if this is included in your warranty and include maintenance tips you may do on your own, too.

Can I extend my warranty after I purchased my refrigerator?

Yes, and sometimes there are discounts upon purchased. But first, check if you are already offered a good warranty. Most refrigerators now offer 10 years warranty.

Should I be worried if I hear sounds from my refrigerator?

First, determine what kind of sound you are hearing. If you hear a blowing or air rushing inside, these are most like cause by the fan inside. If it’s a dripping sound, try to check if it’s dripping due to water being drained out during a defrost cycle. If you just turned on your refrigerator and you hear the motor running loudly, this is normal at start. This should tone down after it balances the pressure inside. If not, you may need to have it check.

Tips to consider when buying the Best Refrigerator for you:

Budget Friendly

It is a large appliance and costs around 10-30k depending upon the cavity space as well as the features inbuilt within the machine. The price is a big factor to decide which machine to opt for.

  5. Karla B. Porter DECEMBER 21, 2018 The title of this post is so true for me. My food processor truly is the workhorse of my kitchen. I probably use my food processor three or four times a week. I bake a lot so, I use it when I’m making big batches of cookies, pizza dough, bread dough, and biscuits. I also use it to make hummus, pesto, and mayo on a weekly basis. When my children were younger, I also used it to make big batches of baby food too, and then I would freeze little batches in ice cube trays. Anyone out there who doesn’t have a food processor, I’m telling you, you really need to consider investing in one. I’ve a food processor and I’ve had it for 17 years now. It really is a time saver and every kitchen should definitely have a food processor.

How to Choose a Kitchen Weighing Scale – Buying Guide

With so many brands, models and types present in the market, choosing the right one can be a bit overwhelming. Without proper information, if you opt for a wrong choice, then it can only be a waste of your money but also spoil your dishes. For purchasing the appropriate one, we recommend reading our buying guide. It has all the information that helps you analyze the options and purchase the right kitchen scale.

1. Different Types of Kitchen Scales

Basically, there are 3 main types of kitchen scales available in the market.

  • Balance Scales – Balance scales look like a seesaw with two arms. The user has to put the ingredients on one arm and the weight on the other arm. The weights can be added or reduced to balance the arms. This type of scale is good for measuring bulk ingredients but it is a complicated process which has made it obsolete.
  • Mechanical Scales – Also called spring scales, these scales work using springs which move the dials and reflect the weight of the ingredient that is being measured. There are two types of mechanical scales – platform scales and hanging scales. These tend to get less accurate with use.
  • Digital Scales – These are the most precise and widely used measuring scales that are easy to use, have a compact design and come with a number of useful features.

2. Accuracy

This is the most important feature of a kitchen weighing scale. It is best to check the user ratings and reviews to know the level of accuracy of the weighing scale. Accuracy is measured by the degree of graduation of a scale. Most kitchen scales have a graduation of 1 gram or 0.05 ounces. Graduations larger than this will affect the accuracy of the scale.

3. Size

It is best to choose a digital kitchen scale with a compact size that can be easily placed on the kitchen counter without occupying too much space. Lightweight weighing scales are also easy to move from place to place.

4. Ease of Use

Choose a weighing scale with a removable top – as it becomes easy to clean and maintain the device.

5. Readability

Digital kitchen weighing scales come with digital LCD screens. It is best to choose a scale that has a prominent and readable LCD screen.

6. Capacity

In earlier times, digital weighing scales were used measuring only small quantities of ingredients. But the present models can handle large loads of up to 11 pounds or higher. Select the capacity of your kitchen weighing scale depending on the types of ingredients that you need to weigh.

7. Measurements

It is best to buy a digital kitchen scale that can automatically convert different types of measurement units such as ounces, grams, pounds, etc.

8. Tare Button

This button ensures accurate weight of the ingredient only. It allows you to subtract the bowl weight and provide only the net weight of the ingredient. You can also use this button repeatedly to get zero weight of the present ingredients and measure additional ingredient added into it.

9. Platforms and Bowls

Most regular weighing scales don’t come with bowls or trays. Some digital weighing scales so some with trays or bowls that can be removed and washed after use.

10. Durability

Kitchen weighing scales undergo a lot of rough use and are exposed to the harsh kitchen environment. It is best to choose a strong and durable scale that is made of high-impact plastic or stainless steel.

11. Water Resistance

It is best to digital kitchen weighing scale as dry as possible, but some models are largely resistant to water because the body is completely sealed which makes it easier to measure wet ingredients.

12. Low Battery Indicator

Digital kitchen scales run on batteries so they need to be replaced from time to time. Some high-end models come with a low battery indicator that allows the user replace the battery before it shuts down.

13 Long Auto-Off Duration

This is a very important feature that helps to prevent wastage of batteries. The auto-off future turns off the scale automatically when it is left idle for a few minutes. Some of them can shut-off in 3 minutes while some of them may take 5 or more minutes. Once shutoff, you cannot recall the last measurement reading. Sometimes, especially while baking, you can want to know the previously measured readings. In that case a long standing auto-off feature can be helpful.

14. Laminated Buttons

It is better to have laminated or plastic membrane on the buttons to prevent dust, gunk, crumbs or flour accumulation on them. This makes the cleaning and maintenance process easier.

These are some of the essential feature to look out while purchasing a kitchen weighing scale. However, there are some of the other features as well which may not as essential as above ones but can be good to have. And moreover there are some features that should be avoided. We have mentioned them below for your convenience.

Some features that are good to have…

  • It is better to have rubber feet so that the device doesn’t slip off or slide while in use.
  • If you cook a lot of cakes or large batch of dishes, then it is better to have a weighing scale that comes with more weighing capacity.
  • If you have to weigh ingredients many times in a day, then batteries will be dead in few days. Changing batteries too often can be a daunting task. So having adapter option can be of a great help.

Few things to avoid while purchasing a kitchen scale?

  • It is better to avoid kitchen weighing scales that have glass platform as they are difficult to clean and more fragile. Large glass kitchen scales don’t have a raised platform which make it difficult to read when used with a large bowl.
  • Some kitchen scales come with smart functionality that enables to connect to a mobile app via Bluetooth. As this functionality is not so important and these type of kitchen scales tend to be more expensive, we don’t recommend them.
