Every kitchen needs extra kitchen tools to make preparing food and cooking easier and breezier. However, these essential items and their needs for them sometimes aren’t so obvious, especially if you are a first-time homeowner and are shopping for your kitchen supplies for the first time.
In this article, we hope to make your job easier by listing the ten essential kitchen tools every kitchen needs (all available on our online store). You’ll thank us later!
If you’re shopping for your first home kitchen, you'll be happy with this purchase. This chef knife’s premium Damascus Steel will maintain its sharpness over time. In addition, the G10 handle is designed to be lightweight, durable, and water-resistant. We're not lying when you'll use it frequently, so treat it well.
A robust food-grade silicone spatula is essential for flipping, tossing, and serving various types of foods. Consider it the perfect turner for baked salmon, puffy pancakes, roasted vegetables, cooked meats, and many other pan-prepared dishes. Plus, the silicone will not scratch your nonstick pan!
A silicone baking spatula or scraper is essential for scraping the food processor or the sides of the mixing bowl, swirling frosting onto a cake, or folding egg whites into the cake batter. The silicone material is also heat-resistant to up to 230 degrees Celsius. If you frequently prepare garlicky dishes, keep a separate spatula for baking only sweets so that the smell does not transfer.
For beating eggs, whipping cream, and mixing batter, sturdy silicone whisks are a need. Additionally, you may use it to emulsify a vinaigrette, stir eggs for a frittata, and combine dry ingredients before baking.
To separate solids from liquids, use a perforated (or slotted) spoon, otherwise known as a scoop colander strainer. For example, imagine scooping potatoes or little pasta noodles from boiling water. The slotted spoon will make your task easier!
Whether it’s for barbecuing, serving food at the dinner table or turning meats on the pan, silicone tongs can be really handy in the kitchen. The metal part is made of durable stainless steel, whereas the silicone tip prevents scratching on the cookware and tableware.
A nonstick pan is a must-have in every self-respecting cook’s home. Easy to clean and sturdy, a nonstick pan is a versatile tool for cooking many dishes, from scrambled eggs to sauteed vegetables. Liahome’s honeycomb cooking pan is designed with German technology to be scratch resistant, with 3033 stainless steel technology that allows for even heat distribution.
Liahome’s collapsible colander can stand over the sink and support itself using its sturdy expandable arms, making it ideal for washing fruits and vegetables and draining pasta and canned food. The durable silicone material won't scrape, scratch, or dent like metal strainers but is heat-resistant and suitable for daily use.
If you live in a small space, like most Singaporeans, you will appreciate collapsible cups and mugs that can be ‘collapsed’ for easy storage. Liahome’s collapsible mugs, cups and bottles are also made of food-grade BPA-free silicone, making them safe for cold or hot drinks and dishwasher safe.
Cutting boards made of conventional plastic are prone to mould, easily breakable, difficult to keep clean and harbour dirt and bacteria. Cutting boards made of stainless steel are free of these issues. In addition, Liahome’s stainless steel cutting boards are made using only the finest quality product for your family's hygienic food preparation, so there is no danger of contamination.
Having the right kitchen tools can make your food preparation and cooking experience much easier and more enjoyable! When purchasing kitchen tools, focus on quality to get the best mileage for your money. However, kitchen tools need not look dull as well.
