-- Please discuss your kitchen hardware/tools/cooking utensils etc...

Hi Guys.

So in this thread I'd be interested in the following:

- newer tools that you use that are not as common

- common utensils that you have in the kitchen that are staples for your cooking.

- Old family treasure passed down to you - such as a special knife or something useful like that.

- A few more items you may consider discussing - Cutting-boards, knives (again), presses, spatula's, maybe pancake turners/spatula's.

- I'm okay with even going as far as spices in your spice-rack.



Lately I don't have a bunch to brag about - I did recently drop about $350 at Burlington Coat Factory (of all places) on cookware (I had nothing decent since the divorce) - they had a lot of unique things, one of my sautee skillets is ceramics and has the best handle for flipping pasta's (or whatever) - another thing I had discovered there was a really nice bacon press. I will get the brand-name a little later on this weekend.

I will add photo's over the weekend, hopefully.


I wanted the thread to drop tonight though, so please share anything that's cool, special or especially 'useful' for your throwing down in the kitchen.


Thanks guys.

Look forward to hearing about and/or seeing your gear.

This T-Fal Pro, for as cheap as it is, probably gets used more than any other pan in my kitchen. It it almost always sitting on the stovetop.

http://www.amazon.com/T-fal-Professi...words=tfal+pro

This is my egg pan, and I make eggs for myself and my wife (two different temps, so I cook them separately) every day. And if I need a quick snack, I'll have another egg. So this thing gets used at least twice a day, sometimes three. Treat it nice (I handwash and no metal utensils) and it'll last a while. I've had mine for a couple years now.

Beside my stove I have a large ceramic pot from Pottery Barn full of wooden utensils from pasta forks, to different kinds of spatulas, as well as: a soup ladle, sauce ladle, wire whisks, metal and plastic spatulas, spice grater, tongs. In the smaller one next to it I have smaller whisks, various size baking spatulas etc.

I have two colanders, and various size sieves, cheese cloths and flour cloths, Pizza cutters, pastry cutters, melon ballers, various size scoops for ice cream or making cookies, pizza wheels, apple slicer, grapefruit knives, Muddler, Shaker for making drinks.

My copper pans hang in my kitchen but I don't use those. They're from Crate n' Barrel that I got for my wedding. I cook with my Caphalon Tri-Ply Copper pans from Crate n' Barrel which have had it. I also have the heavy gourmet Tramontina saucepans, fryers and dutch ovens in two large sizes; an Asparagus Steamer (stainless steel), a Wok, Crepe pan, Fondue set, Juicer, Nutribullet, Ice Cream maker ( which I never used),Sunbeam Stand-up Mixer, Blender, Expresso/Latte/Cappuccino machine ( which sucks), Pizza stone, 4 Lodge cast iron pans in 4 sizes, Corningware sets from large to individual serving sizes, ceramic pie pans in different diameters and depths, large Trifle bowl ( used once) and lots of mixing bowls from Rosti melamine from Denmark, to my large set of glass bowls for Mise en Place.

I have a large marble slab, that I got from a quarry that I got for making custom lolliops when my kid was little for theme parties. Cookies sheets, large popover pan, Madeleine pan, racks for cooling baked goods, muffin top pan, cupcake/muffin pans in regular and mini size, several bundt pans in regular cake size and mini bundts, regular cake pans in square, round, loaf shapes, pastry tart pan, spring foam cake pans, Teddy Bear 3D shaped pan, Lamb 3D shaped pan, Small Snowman pans, Jack-O--Lantern pan, Angel Food cake pan, all kinds of pastry tips, bags for decorating along with Luster Dust, silver, gold, multi colored metallic dragees, white pearl dragees in regular and small sizes, all kinds of sprinkles, sanding sugar, larger sparkling sugar.

I'm sure I'm missing something. I'll let you know--like I said I am a kitchen supply junkie and I still want more stuff.

I have two Magnum pepper mills, and need to get a third and fourth.

My big one is standard tellicherry black peppercorns. The small one is white pepper. I need mills for grains of paradise and long pepper.

I like pepper.

I also have two bowls of salt - one bowl of Diamond kosher salt, and one bamboo salt box for Maldon flake salt.

Yeah, I need one for my whole white pepper, my muti colored pepper and Sea salt. That's one of my next purchases.

I haven't cleaned it out because I am on someone else's computer as my monitor went and my HD got damaged last fall. I am getting it back soon.

This is the new Test Kitchen best of class model. Overtook my favorites (the Magnum) on their latest review.
