I don’t know about you, but I really love to cook. For me, the kitchen is my peaceful place where I can relax, listen to music, do a little chopping… 😉 I am not the most talented cook, but I can whip up a stir fry or pasta dish pretty easily. Or my “throw everything in one pot” ramen.
Whether you’re like me and love to make new foods or are a less enthusiastic home cook, home cooking is all about kitchen utensils. We’re all lost in the kitchen without the right tools. And different cooks rely on different kitchen utensils. For example, I’ll never be one of those cooks who can survive with just a knife and a pan! I think the type and quality of kitchen utensils you have in your kitchen says a lot about your cooking style. If you don’t cook a bunch, you may be a minimalist with just a spatula or two. And if you’re a virtuoso baker, you may swear by your whisk or pastry blender.
Do you have a favorite kitchen utensil? You know, the kind of kitchen utensil that you’d be lost in the kitchen without. I definitely have a favorite kitchen utensil (it’s a silicon spatula), and I have a couple backups around just in case. I think the utensil we gravitate towards says a lot about us in the kitchen. For example, I’ve always wished that I could be an expert whisker, but I’m more of a flipper 😉 No surprise given that my cooking tends to be of the quick and easy variety.
