5 Must-have Kitchen Tools

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach they say. There is another school of thought that says that the kitchen is a woman's office. Well, this is true to some extent because it is the most important room in a woman's house. A house without a kitchen is incomplete. 

Please read below 5 must-have kitchen tools for  every woman...

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. 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.

4. 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. These are your kitchen friends. They make your time in the kitchen worthwhile as they assist in kitchen tasks. Cooking is clumsy without these utensils, that's why they are called kitchen tools.

5. Storage Containers

Storage containers aren’t just for storing leftovers, but any unused ingredients that come from making dinner. Storage containers come a lot handy in the kitchen as they help keep even your food stuffs neat and safe from insects and rodents.
