    Knife

    Cutting Board

    You will use a chef’s knife for 90% of your prepping needs, so buy the nicest one you can afford and then take care of it. If you’re going to invest in a high-end knife, try going into a store and seeing how the handle and weight feel best in your hand. My brand of choice is Global.

    A good grippy cutting board will protect your fingers during all your prep work. I love plastic boards because they can be placed in the dishwasher for full disinfecting.

    This list might seem like a lot, but if you continue to use all of your new cooking skills, every item will be a worthy investment and help you build towards a functional kitchen.

    Prep Bowls

    Non-Stick Frying Pan

    C L A S S I C S TAC K A B L E G L A S S B O W L S Every kitchen I’ve been in never has enough prep bowls. These are stackable and will be perfect for organizing all the ingredients you’ll soon be prepping. $ 1 5

    Every household needs a non-stick pan for breakfast duty. Eggs and pancakes are best made on a non-stick surface. Just be careful to use non-abrasive tools on this delicate surface. These do need to be replaced every few years, so no need to purchase a really nice one. $ 5 0

    C O L L A P S I B L E B O W L S G R E AT F O R S M A L L S PAC E S We own two sets of these because they’re so convenient for any space. Plus they come with lids, so you can pre-prep, seal, and have your ingredients ready to go. $ 1 5

    Salad Spinner A salad spinner does more than dry lettuce. It’s also a big prep bowl and colander in one!

    OXO $ 3 0

    C U L I N A B R A N D $ 3 0

    Skillet

    Gosh, what will you not use this pan for? This workhorse will last you a lifetime, retains heat incredibly well, and can go from stovetop to oven. Do everything from searing and roasting meats, scrambling your eggs, sautéing vegetables, to baking frittatas in it. $ 1 5

    Stockpot / Large Saucepan Every kitchen just needs a big pot to boil pasta in, and a simple, budget pot will do. More expensive pots usually are better material, which are good for braises and soups.

    B U D G E T Cooks Standard 6 Qt Stockpot $ 3 0

    Dutch Oven These sturdy pots will keep your soups warm and can even bake bread. They retain heat well, which means food gets cooked quicker, saving you energy and time. It’s also oven-safe, so great for braising meats. I have two other sizes, but I use my 5 quart 90% of the time. Clearly the Le Creusets are coveted, but if you’re on a budget, save it for a really nice holiday wishlist.

    B U D G E T Lodge 5 Qt $ 3 5

    M I D - R A N G E Lodge Enamel 6 Qt $ 7 0

    M I D - R A N G E Lodge Enamel 6 Qt $ 7 5

    H I G H - E N D Le Creuset Enameled 5.5 Qt $ 2 8 0

    H I G H - E N D All Clad 6 Qt Stockpot $ 2 8 0

    Strainer

    Measuring Spoons

    These small and lightweight strainers are good to have around to dry veggies, fruit and even seafood. $ 1 3

    Likely you already own these, but I love this set because they’re narrow enough to fit into your spice jars. Plus, they’re magnetic, so they keep glued together in your drawer. $ 1 5

    Measuring Cups

    While I try not to measure too many things, measuring cups do come in handy for sauces and marinades (and of course if you’re a baker, you’ll definitely be using these). $ 1 0

    Liquid Measuring Cup

    Clearly, you can use these for measuring, but make sauces right in these sturdy glass cups and pour it into whatever you’re cooking up. $ 2 0

    Peeler

    I have been in too many homes where the peelers just sucked. Get yourself a good sharp peeler to remove the peels of vegetables of course, but you can also use it for shaving off cheese too! $ 9

    Wooden Spoons

    I love my wooden spoons and use them everyday. They’re not abrasive on your cooking surfaces and they’ll last forever. Just don’t put them in the dishwasher. $ 5

    Sheet Pans

    These pans can get a lot of action – roasting vegetables, baking meats, toasting nuts, and of course baking cookies are just a few things you can do on them. $ 1 5

    Can Opener

    Again, I’ve been in a lot of homes without a good can opener. This one is sharp and will wrangle any can open. $ 1 4

    Tongs

    I’m not quite strong or coordinated enough to flip and toss ingredients just by shaking a pan. Tongs therefore come in very handy when I need to move ingredients around. $ 1 2

    Kitchen Towels

    If you cook regularly, you can never have enough kitchen towels. FACT. $ 1 8

    N I C E -TO - H AV E S

    Wok Use a skillet until you’re ready to get a wok, but this is the lightweight non-stick one we use. If you want something more substantial, opt for the cast iron version.

    L I G H T W E I G H T $ 3 0

    H E AV Y- D U T Y $ 5 0

    Saute Pan

    The high walls of this pan make it great for sautéing anything (hence the name). I especially love it for tossing pastas
