Essential Kitchen

Ok..a Buddy Sent me a list and asked what I thought was ESSENTIAL Kitchen items.

What's on yours?

They listed, Pam Spray, a steamer, blender, food processor, Spice rack (makes my skin crawl thinking how old spice rack spices would be), and measuring cups, and an empty "spritzer" bottle.

I agreed with No Stick spray. I agreed with Measuring Cups (we have several sets).


Steamer:NO-- have one..pain in the butt...use a pan with a little water in it.
Blender:"essential?" have one in garage, break out rarely for Marqarita's
Food Processor: I usually chop by hand, but for making homemade mayonnaise, gotta have it--so yes.
Spritzer bottle: no way. Ick. Can imagine trying to clean it after putting stuff in it. NO way.
Essential: Big roll of saran wrap from Gordon's. Gotta have it.
Essential: really like my wooden spoons, and Rubber Spoonula's from Gordons.
Essential: Coffee maker of some sort be it a French press, Mr Coffee or SOMETHING.

agree on coffee maker but my kitchen has to have a flexible cutting board, a good chef's knife, a micro grater, glass nesting bowls and my kitchen aid mixer (chrome, artisan series)...gas oven and a heat-proof spatula....this is actually getting hard for me since I'm a chef....I need it ALL!!!!
