Whether you are a budding chef or a bit of a clutz in the kitchen, there are a set number of essential kitchen tools and accessories that every kitchen needs.
Even if you don’t have the slightest bit of interest in cooking it is important to keep certain kitchen appliances and accessories to hand, just in case you are entertaining guests who love to cook, you need to whip up a quick meal or you are planning on trying something out for yourself for the first time.
Measuring Cups and Spoons
These are always necessary because they make cooking so much easier! Most recipes work for measuring cups and spoons and they make measuring things out quick and easy.
Mixing Bowls of Varying Sizes
Even if you never made a cake in your life, you will still be better off with a few mixing bowls here and there. At the worst of times they make great popcorn and crisps containers when hosting large parties!
Corkscrew/Bottle Opener and Can Opener
A must have in any kitchen. The first two can often be found in student kitchens with the latter not far behind. Certain kitchen designs even come with a built in bottle opener on the kitchen counter!
Kitchen worktops can become scratched and worn over time and this leads to the spread of germs. Buying a variety of cutting boards for vegetables, meats, dairy etc is relatively cheap and saves a lot of time and effort in cleaning. When you want to clear up, simply rinse off the board!
