As part of my ongoing decluttering and living with less project, I tackled my kitchen drawers and cupboards...
So what are my kitchen essentials? What can stay & what can go?
My trusty Sabatier knives that were a wedding gift are getting a bit old looking - perhaps I've not looked after them as well as I should have. If I could, I'd buy from this range - these Kasumi knives are manufactured in Japan no less and have a great reputation. Perhaps a new home gift...hint, hint!
Another essential is my Kitchen Aid - a 30th birthday gift from my husband. I love it!
Unfortunately my frying pan is also getting old & no longer non-stick. Perhaps time to invest in a new one, especially with my new weekend pancake routine and omelette skills!! I'd like this Mauviel one please ;-)
When I'm looking to whisk or blitz something quickly without using my Kitchen Aid or Magimix, I have a Braun hand blender that I couldn't live without. It's lasted well and I'd definitely recommend it. I don't use all the attachments though, so could probably have managed with a cheaper version.
One of my other essentials is a set of measuring spoons which were a gift from Bex at Olive Dragonfly. They're really handy for properly measuring teaspoons and tablespoons of this and that. I use them frequently.
A few other additional little items are my silicon spatula, digital thermometer (useful for when cooking meat) and cake decorating stuff (a few shaped cutters, piping bags and nozzles).
Things I have but rarely, if ever, use
Honey drizzler (not sure why I thought I'd use this!!)
Garlic press (I'm lazy & buy garlic paste)
Tell me, what are your kitchen essentials?
