Cooking doesn't really require such modern equipments or utensils. In fact, it can be just simple. When you cut down your kitchen to its simplest essentials, these are the things you must have.
I know most of us would want a kitchen that is outfitted with complete and modern appliances and utensils. But the truth is, cooking doesn't really require such modern equipments or utensils. In fact, it can be just simple.
When you cut down your kitchen to its simplest essentials, these are the things you must have:
Knives are very essential as it is your cutting tool for meat and vegetables. There are actually only four knives that you would want to keep. One is the chef's knife for all-around chopping and cutting. The second is a cleaver knife for hard vegetables and meat. The third one is a serrated knife for food that a chef's knife cannot neatly slice like bread as well as tomatoes and angel food cakes. And the last is the paring knife for more detailed tasks.
POTS AND PANS
You can actually have all the types of pots and pans but you can practically cook everything you need with just four pots and pans: an all-around stockpot for pasta and big batches of soup, a medium-sized frying pan for frying, searing and browning foods, a saute pan with high sides and a saucepan for stewing and boiling.
If you don't have a space or budget for a full-sized oven then a toaster oven is the best alternative for it! You can use it for baking, broiling, reheating, and toasting. Its small footprints means saving both space and electricity.
If you have the space and the budget, you can keep having new cookwares and equipments and that's great! But if you don't, it's still fine too. Other kitchen cookwares are not necessarily essential in our kitchen, they are just nice to have. Anyway, we already got the best tool around and that is our own two hands!
