Kitchen Essentials I Can’t Live Without

As a professional and home-cook, I have come to appreciate the following utensils and appliances – they make life in the kitchen so much more convenient, and help to save time.

Choosing Knives

Quality, not quantity should be your guide. A well-made set of 3-4 knives is plenty for a beginner or intermediate home cook. If you want to splurge, by all means check out Korin’s astounding knife collection.

What Knives Should You Buy?

Every kitchen should have at least three knives: The chef’s knife, a serrated knife, and a paring knife. The chef’s knife, usually 8-10 inches long, is the knife I use every day and the workhorse in anyone’s kitchen. It is used for chopping, slicing and dicing, basically it’s the all-purpose knife.
