With two decades under her belt as a professional cook, we can say with confidence that Better Food Guru (or, Sara) knows her stuff when it comes to keeping a well-stocked and efficient kitchen. We asked for her insight on tools you can use to improve your experience in the kitchen. Here's what she had to say:
"These are my top ten essential cooking tools for cooking in your home. They run the gamut from hand tools like my favorite chef knife, peeler, and can opener to my favorite cookware like a half sheet pan and wok.
These are all the things you need to outfit your home kitchen in order to cook many different styles and dishes successfully. All of them are as versatile as can be, have great quality and functionality, and won't break the bank."
Many of these cooking essentials have stemmed from my two decades of professional cooking in restaurants. Simple, good quality cooking tools make it a breeze to produce tasty dishes at home. Many people will try to sell you unnecessary gadgets, but these are the only ones you truly need.
