Having the right kitchen tools that are a must-have for your kitchen will help you prep efficiently and fundamentally. Therefore, I share the best seven essential must-have kitchen tools that I find necessary.
I have quite a bit of a collection of kitchen tools & equipment stashed away that is barely needed. However, those that are crucial are used frequently and are always within arm’s reach. Therefore, I will share seven of the best tools that have become fundamental that my clan & I use daily and for food prepping more manageable but have become necessary essential equipment.
Cast Iron Skillets
Cast iron is one of my favorite kitchen tools & essential to use in the kitchen. We use our cast iron skillets several times a day daily. Not only can you whip up something on the stove, but they are great for baking too. It is also lovely to do one-skillet recipes to make cleaning up the kitchen easier. Ever since I inherited my grandmother’s cast iron several years ago, I have grown my collection & they have become necessary in our kitchen.
Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer
I love to bake! I especially enjoy making homemade bread. We keep this on our kitchen counter. I have had mine for over 25 years & it is still going strong. We don’t just use our kitchen aid stand mixer for baking; it sure has come in handy when we want to whip up a large batch of homemade mash potatoes.
I have quite a bit of a collection stored in my crock on the kitchen counter that I have acquired over the years. They are essential to my cookware and they don’t scratch my skillets or mixing bowls. I use them not only for cooking but for serving food too.
By now, you know I have a love for my collection of mason jars, but I will tell you that they look beautiful displayed on the shelf and serve a purpose. Not only are they are one of my favorites, they are excellent for storing dry goods but great for storing leftovers from dinner as well. I also use them for storing milk, homemade tea & bacon grease. The use is endless.
I have an abundance of tea towels. We use them for drying dishes & hands. I have a separate stash of lint-free tea towels that we only use for oiling our cast iron skillets.
Recipe Box & Cookbooks
Over the years, I have acquired family recipes that are dear to my heart. Especially the recipes that are from my mother, grandmother & my mother-in-law. We use these recipes often. Several of my cookbooks are those I have acquired from my mother & grandmother.
I have a collection of very old rolling pins stored in a crock. They sure do come in handy for rolling out pie crust or when I make bread. Not that I need that many, but when my kids & I are rolling out pizza dough, it’s nice to have extra rolling pins on hand.
I am sharing the best seven fundamental must-have kitchen tools that are the key to make cooking & baking efficient.
