I believe it’s true what they say, a cook’s best tool is clean hands.
That being said, there is a lot more stuff you need in the kitchen in order to create culinary masterpieces – or even to just make mac and cheese. One of the things I’m often asked is “What kind of pots and pans do you use?”, “How much money should I spend on ______?”, these are all important things to consider. In this forum, I’ll share with you the kinds of things I like to use in the kitchen. Which items you should spend a pretty penny for, and which ones you can get relatively inexpensively. Please keep in mind that these are just my opinions and are based on my personal use of said equipment. I also like to do research before I buy something. Cooks Illustrated has an amazing site and they do equipment testing. I always say they are the Consumer Reports of the cooking world.
My first post in this space will be on colanders, aka. strainers. It’s a video post that was filmed earlier.
