Some people crave perfume, candy and bouquets of flowers as gifts. Others want a shiny new watch or a new tennis racket to help with their on-court game. Yet for those who love spending time in the kitchen whipping up delicious things to eat with a bowl and wooden spoon, there’s no better gift than a set of new cooking utensils. So let’s take a look at some of the kitchen utensils that can help that home chef really refine those cooking techniques.
Though some serious cooks might not admit it—for fear of wanting just too much—if they were to be completely honest, they would have to confess to a longing for a complete cookware set. If that cookware set is also constructed of heavy gauge aluminum and a nonstick surface, for easy cleanup, well so much the better.
What are the cookware essentials needed for whipping up a variety of great dishes? A complete cookware set would include crucial pieces like saucepans, omelette pans, and a slow cooker. Cookware lines like Calphalon have quality cookware that features anodized construction and ergonomic handles make cooking with that favorite saucepan a dream come true. As any serious chef will tell you, good quality kitchenware is absolutely worth it.
Once chefs have the cookware of their dreams, they’ll also need other cooking utensils to round out their collection. What other essentials will they need? It’s the little hand tools, like a spatula, a hand whisk, measuring spoons, and a ladle, that really round out that kitchen collection. The Martha Stewart Professional Tools Collection has sets of kitchen essentials fashioned in sleek stainless steel and wood. These tools get the job done and get it done in style.
