Kitchen Essentials

Great Chef’s Knife

An all purpose knife to cut everything from vegetables to meat.

All Purpose Skillet

Like a sauce pan meets skillet. This pan is 5 quarts vs. 3.5 quarts like a typical skillet. So it’s a perfect all-purpose pan! Oven-safe too!


These have a little nub so you can lay the spatula down without the spoon touching the counter. Meant for all types of food (wooden spatulas shouldn’t be used with meat because you can’t get the bacteria out of it)!

Three-Quarter Size Baking Sheet

A super large baking sheet is a game changer!! It fits everything on one baking sheet in a single layer!

Plastic Cutting Board

You don’t want to use wooden cutting boards for anything like meat, seafood, garlic, or onion. Bacterias and smells are almost impossible to get out of a wooden cutting board.


9-Inch Tongs

The absolute best way to toss and serve salads, pastas, and stir frys. And the nylon tops on these prevent scratches on your cookware.

Meat Thermometer

A must have! It takes all the guess work out of cooking meat. You’ll never have to worry about under/over cooking meat again.

Countertop Appliances

All the essentials you can keep on your counter top… or store away if keeping things on the counter isn’t your thing!!!

Pots and Pans

PSA: You don’t need all the pots/pans that come in a pots and pan set. I much prefer selecting the specific pots you will get the most use out of. That way you can get a few nice pots and save cabinet space.
