Economical cooking essentials

Or, perhaps, a friend who's only recently taken an interest in cooking, but doesn't have the gear to do it up right? The items on this list are perfect for cooks who are just starting out in one way or another. We've divided it into two sections: The first lists our picks for the absolute most essential gear—no frills, no extras, and nothing that won't get used over and over and over again for years to come.

The second offers a few items that, while not quite mandatory, will definitely make your cooking life a heck of a lot easier. We can also help you with organizational tips and storage suggestions , too. A good chef's knife is a lifelong friend in the kitchen, good for nearly every task you'll face, from boning a chicken to chopping carrots or mincing parsley.

You want a sturdy, forged-steel chef's knife that'll last a long time, with a balanced handle; a full tang meaning the knife is constructed from a single piece of metal that runs straight through the handle ; and solid riveted construction.

Though a chef's knife is more essential and more versatile, a good serrated knife, a. bread knife, is hard to substitute: Nothing does a better job of slicing through the soft crumb of fresh bread, or the skin of a ripe tomato, than its saw-toothed blade.

Because of that serrated edge, your bread knife will be nearly impossible to sharpen, meaning it'll require replacement every five years or so.

Translation: There's no reason to spend a lot of money on one. In our review of the serrated knives , we found that the Tojiro Bread Slicer mm F has a slightly flexible blade that helps with more delicate tasks, like skinning tough winter squash, and sharp teeth that'll slice cleanly through anything you throw at it.

if you have the cash to spare. But it also requires maintenance , and if a better price is what you're after, a heavy-duty plastic board, preferably one with rubberized grips, is A-OK. For everyday use, forget about the dinky little foot-wide cutting boards: They make cooking for more than one person a pain in the butt, and, if you're buying this as a gift for someone else, you should be encouraging them to cook for others namely you , right?

This spacious by inch cutting board from OXO won our review of the best plastic cutting boards. Whether you're searing a steak , sautéing vegetables, cooking up a frittata, baking Southern-style cornbread, or even making no-knead pan pizza, a heavy-duty, well-seasoned cast iron skillet is the pan to reach for.

A inch pan will be big enough for just about any recipe. You might have heard that caring for your cast iron requires a great deal of effort. Not so! Cast iron is actually a lot more forgiving than people think, and it takes all of about 30 seconds to wipe it dry, rub some oil into it, and reheat it with each use.

Heck, you can even wash it with soap and water! For more details, check out our guide to seasoning and maintaining cast iron. Our favorite skillet from our review is by Made In. You can get away with cooking just about anything in a well-seasoned, well-cared-for cast iron pan.

But when it comes to cooking egg dishes like omelettes and scrambled eggs , as well as delicate items like crepes, you can't beat a modern nonstick surface.

Luckily, adding another skillet to your collection won't break the bank—no nonstick pan is durable enough to last more than a few years, so there's every reason to buy nonstick skillets cheap. After testing , models from T-fal and Tramontina came out on top, though a restaurant supply store will stock something comparable.

For making most sauces, from béchamel to caramel, not to mention custard desserts like butterscotch pudding , a quality saucepan in a versatile size is essential for ensuring that the contents heat evenly and the finished product comes out velvety-smooth.

Even better than a saucepan is a saucier, whose gently sloping sides make thorough whisking a breeze. Look for one that combines the durability of stainless steel with the superior heating ability of aluminum, like this one from Made In, which came out on top when we reviewed sauciers.

We loved its ergonomic handle and wide surface area that was great for stirring a variety of things. An enamel-coated cast iron Dutch oven is the ideal vessel for slow braises like these Chinese-spiced short ribs and soups.

In the oven, the pot's thick walls and heavy lid are ideal for low-and-slow heat transfer, meaning stews and pot roasts will come out juicier and more tender, with minimal evaporation during cooking. On the stovetop, its tall, wide sides retain heat well and promise easy, splatter-free browning when you're cooking large amounts of meat and vegetables at once.

Plus, it's great for deep-frying, and boiling pasta, and—if you or your giftee is regularly burning the midnight oil at a new job and struggles to find time for home-cooked meals—it's big enough to make a batch of stew or soup on Sunday that'll last all through the week.

In our review of cast iron Dutch ovens , the classic Dutch oven from heritage brand Le Creuset , a long-standing recommendation of ours, got top marks. But if you want something more affordable—especially for a starter kitchen—the slightly smaller Cuisinart also did well in our tests.

Whichever you choose, dutch ovens are some of the l ongest-lasting pieces of kitchen equipment that will stand up to decades of use. Like the Dutch oven, a good-sized casserole dish is a necessity for big-batch comfort-food dishes that you can eat throughout the week, or even freeze for hectic times to come—we're talking creamy spinach lasagna and shepherd's pie blanketed in rich, buttery mashed potatoes.

Besides that, for baked goods like rhubarb crisp , Stella chooses tempered glass for its heat conductivity and nonreactive surface— read more about her preference for tempered glass pie pans here.

As much as we appreciate—celebrate, even—the precision offered by a scale, there are times when it's either impractical or just plain unnecessary to weigh out your ingredients. To get accurate quantities by volume, you've got to have measuring cups: both dry measuring cups and liquid measuring cups , plus a set of spoons.

Rimmed aluminum baking sheets are not just for baking. Also called "sheet pans" in the restaurant industry, they're used for a huge number of oven tasks: baking a batch of cookies , crisping up a tray of broccoli, or even roasting a whole turkey or chicken.

Beyond those functions, sheet pans are endlessly useful—say, for spreading out vegetables or tofu to dry before frying, or for providing a steady, easily grabbable surface on which to place a pie for baking, cooling, or chilling.

Quarter-sheet trays and half-sheet trays are the most versatile sizes for a home kitchen. They're lightweight, durable, and inexpensive enough that you may want to spring for a couple in each size. In fact, if you can, you'll want to keep one set for high-temperature roasting and one for baking, as the pans you use for meats and vegetables will tend to get a bit beaten up.

You'll also want to pair your half-sheet pan with a simple wire rack to ensure that your resting meats or cooling cookies get the air circulation they need.

A Microplane is a terrific tool, and highly recommended for creating a fine shower of Parmesan, lemon zest, or fresh nutmeg. But if you need to shred two whole pounds of cheese to make Daniel's Classic Baked Mac and Cheese , a box grater is a far better bet.

In our review of the best box graters on the market, the Cuisipro took home the gold for its super-sharp etched holes, the larger of which will make short work of the block of cheddar.

If all you're doing in the kitchen is making simple, forgiving, largely vegetable-based dishes—things like stews, sautés, and casseroles—you can get away without a thermometer for testing your food's internal temperature.

But if you want to cook any kind of meat and cook it well, a good thermometer is a necessity. Our top pick is the ThemoWorks Thermapen ONE. We've also long recommended the ThermoPop as a good budget alternative to the pricier Thermapen.

It's a popular kitchen tool that comes with a good long probe for poking into the center of a roast, plus an easy-to-read rotating display. Theoretically, setting an oven to your desired temperature should be as simple as pressing a few buttons and waiting for the beep.

But many, many home ovens out there don't run true to temperature. A cheap oven thermometer hooked to the rack allows you to understand whether your own appliance runs hot or cold, so you don't have to constantly monitor your food or fret over uncertain timing.

Armed with this knowledge, you can even try recalibrating the oven according to the manufacturer's instructions if you're feeling handy. And if you want to get really fancy and are in the habit of roasting big hunks of meat or making caramel , you could also invest in a probe thermometer —we reviewed them and liked the ThermoWorks ChefAlarm.

For a budget pick, we liked the Polder Digital In-Oven Meat Thermometer. Wanna know why television cooks use glass mixing bowls? It's not because they're better than the cheaper metal versions. It's for one reason only: Metal bowls are too reflective, and they make life difficult for the camera operators.

On the flip side, they're also lighter than glass, take up less space, and last longer and yes, modern microwaves can handle metal bowls! Go into any restaurant kitchen, and you'll find that the mixing bowls being used are exclusively metal. Moral of the story: Leave the glass bowls for the TV chefs, and grab yourself a metal set.

We tested 12 sets of metal mixing bowls and named the inexpensive one from Vollrath our favorite. A good wooden spoon is any cook's best friend, whether it's used for stirring a sauce, tasting a soup, or making the creamiest possible risotto.

For the true aficionados among us, it's not unusual to end up with half a dozen wooden utensils in various shapes and sizes. But to start out, grab this one from Jonathan. We also liked the FAAY A well-made set of tongs is like a heatproof extension of your own fingers, which is why we did a deep dive into the best tongs out there.

If you click on links we provide, we may receive compensation. Learn more. Stocking your kitchen with cookware, tools, and appliances can easily cost thousands of dollars.

Not to mention, these tools make great gifts. Savvy meal preppers and bakers who like big batches will reach for this large sheet pan over and over. Made of durable aluminum, it conducts heat well and ensures your food will cook uniformly. Testing cookie sheets , we were able to achieve even browning on potato wedges and a golden brown result on cookies, and food released easily.

Despite its large size, it was easy to maneuver, even with oven mitts on. The angled walls helped us scoop up foods with a spatula, and the rolled edges provided excellent structure and prevent warping. The versatility of a paring knife is hard to beat, so if one knife is useful, a set of two is even better.

This set from Zyliss gives you a 3. Testing paring knives , liked how easily we could chop shallots with the smooth blade and cut through bread and slice through tomatoes with the serrated blade.

Both blades are easy to wash by hand and also come with blade covers to guard against their super-sharp points and edges during storage. Microplane makes the gold standard for handheld zesters and graters. It also works wonderfully on hard cheese, producing fine, fluffy shreds that melt into risotto or pasta.

This model from Zulay pulls double duty with two reamers: a tooth reamer for lemons and limes and a three-tooth reamer for oranges, grapefruits, and other large citrus. We tested this with a few different citrus varieties and were able to produce copious amounts of clear, flavorful juice with some pulp, collecting it in the ounce capacity cup below.

Professional cooks know that keeping knives well-honed is essential for functionality and safety in the kitchen. This affordable knife sharpener from Longzon lets you tend to dull knives whenever you need to, with multiple grit settings to get the perfect edge.

We liked the sturdiness and effectiveness of this sharpener, which required only five to 10 pulls to notice an improvement to our blade we noticed an even better edge after 10 to 20 pulls. We also like that it can sharpen scissors too, adding even more value to this already well-priced model.

For avid bakers, a silicone spatula is essential — its flexible head can mix, scrape, and fold with ease. During testing , this attractive KitchenAid spatula scraped ingredients out of bowls with ease, felt nicely lightweight, and was easy to clean with a quick hand wash.

While its curved head struggled to get into corners, we found it versatile and an overall great value. The spatula you use to flip and roll eggs into the ideal shape matters, especially when it comes to omelets.

This flexible egg turner from OXO has a silicone blade with an extra-thin, slightly flexible edge that lets you slide right underneath your omelet without compromising its surface. It allowed us to achieve a perfect fold when we tested the best spatulas for eggs , so we dubbed it the Best for Omelets.

With a high heat resistance up to °F , it can withstand the dishwasher and more. Even though the handle is made of wood, the spatula is dishwasher-safe for easy cleanup. A wooden spoon comes in handy for sautéing, stirring sauces, scraping up fond while deglazing a pan, and more.

During testing , we were easily able to break up ground sausage and stir oatmeal, and the deeper bowl of this spoon allowed us to use it as a serving spoon too.

It was easy to clean by hand, followed by air drying. Got a larger budget to spend on an air-fryer? This multifunctional Ninja health grill circulates hot air efficiently to help you achieve a crisp result with a similar texture and flavour to fried foods.

Dehydrate, bake, roast, grill and reheating functions are on offer in addition to zero-oil air crisping. The non-stick griddle component helped us achieve those iconic char lines. Bring a retro note to your kitchen with this nest of solid brass measuring cups, including ¼ cup, ½ cup and 1 cup measures.

The smart leather tag at the end means they can be hung up for easy storage. Read our full guide to the best baking gifts. This earthenware bowl is a modern take on the classic, featuring embossed leaves and woodland creatures across its exterior that double up as grips.

It's 29cm across, making it a perfect bowl for big bakes and proving dough. The 'library' design of these chopping boards keeps the boards stacked and separated for using with different ingredients.

A compact, easy-to-store set of simple digital scales offering imperial and metric measurements on an LED display. Plastic containers are a game changer for storing and transporting food.

A multipack like these stackable boxes by Lakeland are a budget-friendly way to go about investing in a range of sizes. A great grill pan will cook ingredients evenly whilst giving them defined grill lines and the smoky flavour synonymous with chargrilling.

The Prestige impressed with its ability to transfer heat evenly across its large base. Plus the non-stick coating is remarkably easy to clean. Great quality and a reasonable price. Fine Microplane graters are an easy way to grate hardy ingredients like garlic, ginger and nutmeg.

They're also great for zesting citrus fruits. When it comes to adding flavour and zing to dishes, a Microplane could become your best friend.

But if you want something more affordable—especially for a starter kitchen—the slightly smaller Cuisinart also did well in our tests. Whichever you choose, dutch ovens are some of the l ongest-lasting pieces of kitchen equipment that will stand up to decades of use. Like the Dutch oven, a good-sized casserole dish is a necessity for big-batch comfort-food dishes that you can eat throughout the week, or even freeze for hectic times to come—we're talking creamy spinach lasagna and shepherd's pie blanketed in rich, buttery mashed potatoes.

Besides that, for baked goods like rhubarb crisp , Stella chooses tempered glass for its heat conductivity and nonreactive surface— read more about her preference for tempered glass pie pans here.

As much as we appreciate—celebrate, even—the precision offered by a scale, there are times when it's either impractical or just plain unnecessary to weigh out your ingredients. To get accurate quantities by volume, you've got to have measuring cups: both dry measuring cups and liquid measuring cups , plus a set of spoons.

Rimmed aluminum baking sheets are not just for baking. Also called "sheet pans" in the restaurant industry, they're used for a huge number of oven tasks: baking a batch of cookies , crisping up a tray of broccoli, or even roasting a whole turkey or chicken.

Beyond those functions, sheet pans are endlessly useful—say, for spreading out vegetables or tofu to dry before frying, or for providing a steady, easily grabbable surface on which to place a pie for baking, cooling, or chilling.

Quarter-sheet trays and half-sheet trays are the most versatile sizes for a home kitchen. They're lightweight, durable, and inexpensive enough that you may want to spring for a couple in each size.

In fact, if you can, you'll want to keep one set for high-temperature roasting and one for baking, as the pans you use for meats and vegetables will tend to get a bit beaten up. You'll also want to pair your half-sheet pan with a simple wire rack to ensure that your resting meats or cooling cookies get the air circulation they need.

A Microplane is a terrific tool, and highly recommended for creating a fine shower of Parmesan, lemon zest, or fresh nutmeg. But if you need to shred two whole pounds of cheese to make Daniel's Classic Baked Mac and Cheese , a box grater is a far better bet.

In our review of the best box graters on the market, the Cuisipro took home the gold for its super-sharp etched holes, the larger of which will make short work of the block of cheddar. If all you're doing in the kitchen is making simple, forgiving, largely vegetable-based dishes—things like stews, sautés, and casseroles—you can get away without a thermometer for testing your food's internal temperature.

But if you want to cook any kind of meat and cook it well, a good thermometer is a necessity. Our top pick is the ThemoWorks Thermapen ONE.

We've also long recommended the ThermoPop as a good budget alternative to the pricier Thermapen. It's a popular kitchen tool that comes with a good long probe for poking into the center of a roast, plus an easy-to-read rotating display.

Theoretically, setting an oven to your desired temperature should be as simple as pressing a few buttons and waiting for the beep. But many, many home ovens out there don't run true to temperature. A cheap oven thermometer hooked to the rack allows you to understand whether your own appliance runs hot or cold, so you don't have to constantly monitor your food or fret over uncertain timing.

Armed with this knowledge, you can even try recalibrating the oven according to the manufacturer's instructions if you're feeling handy. And if you want to get really fancy and are in the habit of roasting big hunks of meat or making caramel , you could also invest in a probe thermometer —we reviewed them and liked the ThermoWorks ChefAlarm.

For a budget pick, we liked the Polder Digital In-Oven Meat Thermometer. Wanna know why television cooks use glass mixing bowls? It's not because they're better than the cheaper metal versions. It's for one reason only: Metal bowls are too reflective, and they make life difficult for the camera operators.

On the flip side, they're also lighter than glass, take up less space, and last longer and yes, modern microwaves can handle metal bowls!

Go into any restaurant kitchen, and you'll find that the mixing bowls being used are exclusively metal. Moral of the story: Leave the glass bowls for the TV chefs, and grab yourself a metal set. We tested 12 sets of metal mixing bowls and named the inexpensive one from Vollrath our favorite.

A good wooden spoon is any cook's best friend, whether it's used for stirring a sauce, tasting a soup, or making the creamiest possible risotto. For the true aficionados among us, it's not unusual to end up with half a dozen wooden utensils in various shapes and sizes. But to start out, grab this one from Jonathan.

We also liked the FAAY A well-made set of tongs is like a heatproof extension of your own fingers, which is why we did a deep dive into the best tongs out there. With solid construction, slip-resistant grips ever try to grab onto a pair of stainless-steel-only tongs with greasy fingers?

Flexible enough to flip delicate pieces of fish without breaking them, yet sturdy enough to scrape a burger off the bottom of your pan without missing a morsel, a fish spatula is something you'll find in the knife kit of every professional chef, and it's one of the most indispensable tools in the kitchen.

It's also ideal for blotting excess grease off of cooked steaks and chops: Just pick up the meat from the skillet, pat it with a paper towel no need to remove it from the spatula first , and transfer it directly to the serving plate. The wide slots in the spatula allow grease to drain off easily.

We reviewed some of the best fish spatulas on the market and found the offering from Wusthof was lightweight and easy to maneuver, slipping gently under fragile foods without disturbing other items in the pan.

We also liked the option from Lamson , if you're a lefty. This is a very different beast from a fish spatula, or from the wider turner you might use with your nonstick skillet. Rather than turning and flipping with it, it's what you'll grab for scraping out every drop of custard, batter, or sauce from the inside of a pot or bowl.

We recommend having a few on hand. We found it to be the most efficient and easy-to-use mill we tested for our review of the best pepper grinders , quickly crushing peppercorns to a fine powder.

Plus, it looks damn good on the table. It may look suspiciously like a unitasker, but a salad spinner, much like Liam Neeson, brings a very particular set of skills to the table. A good-quality one, like the Zyliss Swift Dry Salad Spinner —a top pick from our best salad spinner review —makes quick work of drying out herbs and leafy vegetables, without which process your salad greens are destined to be a mess every time: wet, limp, unappealing, and sadly resistant to harmonious interaction with their dressing.

Yes, you can spread out your greens to dry on a baking sheet or clean kitchen towel instead, but that's a far more time-consuming method. The real reason this item is a must: Despite its unitasker feel, its interior basket can double as a colander—for cold foods only!

When making stocks, sauces, and creamy, smooth soups , you need a tool that can remove all those bits and pieces of aromatics without fuss. That tool is the simple, humble strainer, which should be rust-resistant, and fit snugly over your bowls and pots check for hooks on the rim that will allow it to do just that.

There's so much you can do with a strainer. Squeeze out seed- and flesh-free citrus juice, poach perfect eggs , sift flour, steam vegetables, and more.

And, of course, your strainer can also serve as a colander for draining pasta and the like, a nice hot-foods counterpart to your salad spinner. After reviewing fine mesh strainers, our favorite was an admittedly pricey option from Rösle; it did all of these tasks and more and was durable and just a great overall strainer.

Every kitchen needs at least one vegetable peeler , and, if you're a regular reader of this site, you'll know by now that our peeler of choice is a Y-peeler.

Each of these Kuhn Rikon Y-peelers is outfitted with a carbon steel blade, which stays sharper longer than a stainless steel one. The broad handle is more comfortable than the slender one on many swivel-blade models.

They're even colorful. What more convincing do you need? It's true that beating egg whites and whipping cream is made much easier with the help of a stand mixer or a handheld electric mixer , but if you're still saving up for one, a good old-fashioned whisk-and-bowl combination works, too.

For pastry applications, look for an all-stainless construction, that won't impart off-flavors to highly acidic recipes, like jam, Key lime pie filling, or lemon curd. For more general use, a balloon design , in which the tines form a fairly open cage, will minimize the clumping of sauces and batters in the whisk's crevices.

Our favorites—by GIR and OXO—were comfortable to hold and did a great job whisking pastry cream, egg whites, whipped cream, and more. For more information on what types of whisks to use and when, read about how to choose the right whisk here.

A paring knife can't do too much that a chef's knife can't, but, after your chef's knife, it's the chopping tool you'll likely reach for most often. For small tasks, like halving lemons or mincing shallots, or tasks that require closer attention to detail, its size, and light weight make it a more convenient choice.

You'll also inevitably find yourself using it for some other, more offbeat purposes—it makes a fine cake tester in a pinch. As with a bread knife, it's not necessary to invest too much cash in a paring knife.

In our review of the best paring knives , the Victorinox 3. It's affordable, plenty sharp, and comfortable to hold. Meyer's Clean Day Dish Soap , which is expensive for dish soap but every scent I've come across smells amazing, and a Scrub Daddy Sponge , the happiest bright-yellow super sponge that cheers me up as I scrub burnt food off my pans.

Every time I go grocery shopping, I wind up with foods from only two parts of the food pyramid — grains and dairy. Meal kit delivery services are great for busy people, those who don't know how to shop for groceries like me , and those who burn their meals also me.

My personal favorite is Gobble because you can cook dinner with no more than two pots or pans and in around 25 minutes too.

Here are the 15 kitchen tools I've found to be invaluable based off of my own trials and many errors. Consider buying a set of different-sized bowls that nestle into one another. Utensils Start with a large spoon.

Add a grater. After that, what you cook will help you determine what you need such as whisks, ladles, etc. at a Goodwill and these items cost less than a buck each.

A baking or casserole dish Great for casseroles, lasagna, quiches, pot pies, brownies or small cakes, plus even roasting a chicken, a small yet heavy baking dish is a great place to start when cooking for one or two people.

You can use an oven mitt as a trivet, too, once something hot has to go onto a table. In addition to preventing food from going to waste, you can also store foods you can buy in bulk, such as cereal, spices, flour, sugar, oatmeal, nuts, spices, etc.

Plus, a glass jar is great for making vinaigrette. When on a budget, no food should be left to spoil as wasted food is wasted money.

Pouring ,rather than ladeling, liquids make you a tidier cook. You often need more than a cup of liquid measured. Or, undercook that roast chicken. No one likes pink poultry. Great investment. I agree wholeheartedly. I love my pressure cooker, and wish I had gotten it when the family was younger.

Very quick way to cook favor-filled meals. The cookers they make now are much safer than those made decades ago. There are some very good cookbooks out there for pressure cooking too—check them out!

Hey Kat — Great list! Yes, a digital thermometer really takes the guess work out of cooking meats. Dutch oven for braising.

Economical cooking essentials - Start with a large spoon. Add a silicon spatula ($4), a vegetable peeler and then a good set of tongs such as those made by Oxo ($8) This kitchen essentials list has everything you need. Check out 71 of the best quality cookware, utensils and equipment in this kitchen essentials list Other than certain basics pretty much every kitchen needs (spatula, spoon, pot/pan, skillet, tongs, whisk, knives, can and bottle openers “Must-haves” for any kitchen should include a good quality knife.

I always suggest going to a store that will allow you handle the knife first. It should have a blade of good enough quality that it can take an edge and keep it. Never put a knife in the dishwasher; the detergent will dull the blade, the heat from the steam may warp it and neither will do much for the handle, either.

You can find great deals at restaurant supply stores and at the business-focused Costco outlets. If you want to splurge, explore mid-range options from German or Japanese knife manufacturers such as Henckels, Wusthof and Global. Avoid their very cheapest, entry-level goods, though; at that point, you tend to be paying more for the name brand than the quality of knife.

If you invest in a knife and treat it well by hand washing it and getting it regularly sharpened, like other kitchen essentials, it can last a lifetime.

Cutting Board or two A good-looking cutting board can double as a serving platter for parties. Absolutely avoid glass; it has a grating sound and will ruin your knife blades. Next up are cutting boards made from bamboo.

Wooden cutting boards are handsome, but need a little extra care. Measuring cups and spoons Stick with basic metal measuring cups and spoons to start. Hot pot or electric kettle A hot pot or kettle is great for rapidly boiling water. Whether you use it to brew a cup of tea, get a jump on water for pasta, or cook even ramen noodles.

A large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch Oven A six- to eight-quart heavy bottom pot will keep you from burning everything you put into it, and will allow for an even sauté onions and vegetables, thus making this a good choice for soup, beans, chili, stock, etc. in addition to using it for boiling water for pasta or steaming vegetables.

You can get an inexpensive stainless one from IKEA or a restaurant supply store, but the best value for money is an enameled cast-iron Dutch oven.

Be sure to get one that has no plastic in its design including the handle so that it can go into the oven, far-extending its value beyond the stove top.

If splurging, go directly to a quality brand such as All-Clad. A set of nesting bowls You need at least one large bowl to mix stuff in.

Consider buying a set of different-sized bowls that nestle into one another. Utensils Start with a large spoon. Add a grater.

Everyone needs a go-to sauce pan, and I like this one because it is a convenient size and easy to store. So many fun elements of plant-based cooking are made possible by a food processor: cheesecake , nut butters , quiche , and more!

This version is relatively inexpensive given the quality, and it comes with step-by-step instructions. Friends, with flavors like banana chia almond butter , blueberry cornbread, and even carrot cake , the baking possibilities are endless in this muffin tin.

Next, I had to include a slow cooker in this roundup because it is a lifesaver on busy days! Some of my favorite recipes include vegan BBQ meatballs , chickpea peanut stew , and black bean soup.

Also, I even did a round up of top recipes to give you more inspiration! Additionally, these are made with sustainable materials and absorb heat very easily.

I love having a set of a few to choose from. Honestly, many of my most productive days start with a hot cup of coffee. Enter: this super-pretty-yet -functional french press. It makes getting that perfect cup a total breeze. So, here we have the final installment in affordable kitchen essentials for today: Mason jars!
