Nothing in the world is quite as satisfying as making something with your own hands — and that’s especially true when what you make is satisfying and delicious. That’s why if you’re an at-home chef who enjoys perfecting recipes, experimenting with ingredients, and creating great meals for your family, you should set yourself up for success.
In today’s post, we’re sharing three things we think belong in every kitchen. Of course, you’ll need more than three things, and we’re only scratching the surface of kitchen items. But the items we’ve listed below are sure to make your life in the kitchen a whole lot easier.
Your Kitchen Should Have…
One Great Knife
Even amateur chefs benefit greatly from having a nice chef knife. Thankfully, many stores sell kits with a variety of knives that are more than serviceable. With that said, if you’re passionate about cooking, you may want to invest in one high-quality chef knife. Do a bit of research to find the one that’s right for your needs and your budget and it’s likely to last you a lifetime.
A Knife Sharpening Kit
What good is a quality knife without a sharp edge? We’ve mentioned it before, but even inexpensive knives benefit greatly from being sharpened regularly, and while others might simply throw knives away as they get dull, we highly recommend investing in a knife sharpening kit to keep a nice, sharp edge on your knives. Trust us when we say that this is an investment not enough people make. When paired with a quality chef’s knife, a knife sharpening kit is almost worth its weight in gold, allowing you to sharpen and resharpen your knife for years to come. You may even be able to pass that knife down your family line for generations if you care for it properly.
A Good Cutting Board
Of course, you’ll also need something to cut on, and if you’ve only ever had plastic cutting boards, you’ll love the difference you feel when preparing your meals on a wooden cutting board. Our advice? Shop locally, because many woodworkers sell their wares at craft shows and farmers markets, and you can get a top-quality cutting board while also supporting a member of your community. Additionally, it’s interesting to note that wooden cutting boards are much less harsh on your knives than other cutting surfaces, making them a win/win situation. And who doesn’t enjoy looking at some beautiful wood grain from time to time?
