#1. Sharp knife

Having a super sharp and big knife means that you have an extra hand, because this would be your best helper when you cook. You don’t have to have a set of good knives; you don’t even have to have more than one. All you need is just one good-sized (20-25 cm long), sharp chef’s knife is all you need. Nothing, will improve your cooking experience more than a really good, really sharp knife.

#2. Cutting board
Of course you will have to cut the food somewhere and you wouldn’t want to ruin your tables and counters. A good and quality cutting board is an essential item in your kitchen, so when you are going to go shopping for it, make sure you invest smart and get it made from thick and quality wood. Plastic boards can be also practical because they are easier for cleaning, but stick to the good old wooden boards because they are made of natural material. If you want to make it a bit more personal then why not check out these monogrammed cutting boards as well?

#3. Pots and Bowls
Everything is more difficult in a too-small pan because you can’t see what’s happening because the food is piled too high. The food doesn’t cook evenly because it’s not evenly in contact with the heat source or the pan. You will have a problem cooking the meat because it won’t go brown because the pan is too crowded and your soup for sure will boil over. That’s why don’t get temporary solutions, get yourself a nice large pot, bowl, a saucepan and frying pans. Yes, they can cost a lot of money, so try to make good investment, because once you pay the price the product should serve you well for at least five years.
