What smart kitchen tools can I skip buying?

Main Post: When it comes to certain kitchen appliances and gadgets, smart isn't always the best. While it depends on your preferences, tried and true is always best for tools like stand mixers and food processors. It's important not to get too distracted by high-tech features and to pay attention to the tool's main purpose, and if it serves that purpose well.

Top Comment: The initial excitement of smart gadgets can sometimes lead to neglecting functionality. I agree that focusing on essentials like a quality knife set and reliable cookware can be more beneficial in the long run.

What does every cook need in their kitchen?

Main Post: There are so many different kitchen tools on the market, but not everyone needs them. First and foremost, you should always invest in a good set of knives and a knife sharpener. A cast iron pan also goes a long way in cooking, and a food scale will make things like baking much easier with precise food measurements. From personal experience, I'd also recommend investing in a quality wood cutting board since it won't dull your knives as quickly. Plus, it doubles as a charcuterie board.

Top Comment: Basic tools are key for all cooks. With a good knife and a cast iron skillet, you can handle almost any recipe. The value of a sturdy cutting board can't be overstated either.
