Kitchen Basics List

Cookware Sets and Individual Cookware:

Whether you're a budding home chef, an experience dinner party host or just settling into your very first kitchen, you should stock up at least a few basic pieces of cookware.

  • Saute Pan (with lid), for searing and sauteing meats and vegetables and for deep frying
  • Fry Pan, for any and all stovetop heating, frying, poaching and frying
  • Stock Pot, for soups, stews, chilis, broths and roasts
  • Skillet, for juicy cuts of meat and stovetop to oven casseroles
  • Pasta Pot, for easy boiling, cooking and draining of all types of noodles
  • Saucepan, for pasta sauces, reductions over the stove and veggie steaming
  • Pizza Pan, to keep your pie crust crisp while still allowing your toppings to brown

Bakeware:

With these bakeware basics, you can whip up your favorite sweet treats with ease. Even if you don't find yourself digging through recipe books looking for a cookie recipe that rivals your grandmother's every other night, you'll need these kitchen essentials.

  • Baking Dish (with cover), for perfectly shaped breads, family-sized lasagnas and meatloafs
  • Baking Sheets, for baking cookies and meringues, as well as for roasting vegetables
  • Cookie Sheets, to give your cookies the perfect outer crunch and keep the center soft
  • Cooling Rack, to cool your cookies evenly and preserve the even bake
  • Cake Pan, for birthdays or special holiday dessert cake
  • Muffin Pan, for traditional muffins as well as savory egg and vegetable breakfast muffins
  • Ramekins, for sweet souffles, baked vegetables or oven-baked egg dishes

Tools and Utensils:

Whatever you aim to create in your kitchen, you can't do without a few key tools and utensils.

  • Mixing bowls, so that you don't have to use your dinnerware to prep and mix ingredients
  • Cutting board, to protect your countertop from your knife and your food from germs
  • Measuring cups and spoons, both dry and measuring cups to cover all your ingredients
  • Rolling pin, to create smooth, even bread doughs, pizza crusts and pastries
  • Spatula, for folding in prep ingredients, spreading frosting and flipping food in a pan
  • Whisk, for emulsifying and whipping eggs or runny mixtures into a light, airy consistency.
  • Strainers, both mesh for sifting flour and wide-slotted colanders for pasta
  • Heat resistant spoons, for stirring and mixing over heat, as well as slotted spoons to extract food from boiling water or oil
  • Pizza Cutter, to create those perfect triangles of cheesy Italian goodness
  • Vegetable peeler, to cleanly and easily skin potatoes, carrots, cucumbers and more
  • Tongs, to firmly grasp and safely flip big cuts of seared meat or vegetables over high heat; good for serving, too

Appliances:

While there are countless kitchen appliances, there are only a few absolute necessities.

  • Toaster or toaster oven, to make warm, crunchy bread sandwiches for any meal
  • Blender, to make fruit smoothies, pasta sauces, blended soups and more
  • Food Processor, for incorporating ingredients, making hummus and nut butters
