Diamonds are a girlâ€™s best friend- at least Marilyn Monroe says. More than diamonds though, every mom deems it highly important to have a kitchen with all the essential tools needed to whip up a stellar meal for her loved ones. To make the job easier, hereâ€™s a brief rundown of those nifty gadgets which every working kitchen should have:
Ladle. Look for one which has a large â€œbowlâ€ to make it easy when serving soups. A bent handle at the top allows you to hook the ladle on one side of the pot without any danger of it falling in.
Slotted spoon. Pick a sturdy spoon with a stainless steel handle that wonâ€™t get too hot.
Sieve. This will be your indispensable baking tool, as you will need to do a lot of flour sifting. You can get quality sieves at affordablesieves.com.
Measuring cups. Youâ€™ll need measuring cups for both dry and wet ingredients. 1-cup and 4-cup measuring tools will come in handy for your dry ingredients.
Chefâ€™s knife. Choose an 8- to 9-inch blade with a thick bolster. This is the metal that goes from the handle to the edge of the blade and acts as a finger guard while youâ€™re chopping. Be sure that the knife feels comfortable in your hand.
Have these tools handy, and youâ€™ll be well on your way to cooking your way to your manâ€™s heart.
