My kitchen equipment
At myingredients we are keen to encourage new cooks to give our recipes a whirl – so we thought it might be useful to give some tips on useful kitchen equipment.
1 Decent non stick frying pan
1 Saute pan
1 Medium pot – preferably heavy based, they last longer, so although more expensive initially they save money in the long run
1 Small pot
1 Large pot – for soups and stocks
1 Ovenproof dish / pot, preferably a heavy based one, which can also be used on the hob – it will save you dishes in the long run!
2 Baking trays
1 Baking tray with high sides – for meat roasts
1 Good sharp kitchen knife – you should actually be fine with just one decent one
1 Grater, with various grating options
1 Fish slice
1 Colander – if not – just use your seive
2 Chopping boards – plastic ones are fine – one for raw meat and one for veg /cooked food is always a good idea.
1 Wooden chopping board for bread, pizzas etc – if not just use your standard one
1 Measuring jug
1 Pie dish
2 Cake tins (Round approx 25cm)
1 Spatula – if you like to bake
1 Glazing brush
1 Mixing bowl
1 Hand held blender – usually cheap to come by - quick to use and easy to clean
1 Potato masher
1 Peeler – if not just use a small sharp knife (to be honest I rarely use my peeler!)
1 Can opener
2 Wooden spoons – 1 large, and 1 small
1 Mortar and pestle
That should be enough to create all sorts of culinary delights!!! Happy cooking.
