Kitchen essentials everyone needs

Whether you have been a home cook for years, or you’ve just moved into a new space and need to stock up your dream kitchen, it’s always smart to have an arsenal of reliable ingredients and tools at hand to whip up a tasty meal in a moment’s notice.

When your kitchen is well stocked with the basics, you will be impressed with how many delicious meals you can easily prepare with the addition of a few fresh seasonal ingredients.

Basic kitchen tools

If you’re just getting started with preparing and cooking meals at home, you will just need a few simple kitchen tools. It’s best to start with the basics and gradually build your supplies over time to save you both money and precious counter space. Keep a running list of items that you may want to invest in to build out your kitchen tool kit. If you only need a food processor or slow cooker once or twice a year, then it may not be worth investing in them up front.

Here are the basic tools you should always have on hand from the beginning:

Take it a step further

If you’ve already got your kitchen basics down, take it to the next level and plant your own herb garden. Fresh herbs in the convenience of your own backyard are an impressive and easy way to make your meals feel extra special. Cilantro, basil, and dill grow great together, and can even thrive when planted in the same pot, making them a perfect choice for a beginners herb garden.
