-- 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.

I bake off my bacon sometimes - as well - I usually push a small amount of light brown sugar into the slices - doesn't need much - but try it sometime.

I have not thought about that - I don't think it'd go more than 17 posts or so, though.

Really recommend Cuisipro hand implements if you can find and afford them, box and hand graters, cheese slicer, whisks, all top notch. I've scavenged them from bargain stores and BB&B closeouts.

Best cheese slicer, bar none.


I'm thinking mine may be the 14-cup version. I got the blade, dough blade, and shredder for sure. And now that I think about it, I might have the slicing blades in a box somewhere.

OXO are great in a pinch - aside from their jumbo can openers though - don't expect to keep them over 3 mos or so.

It's fine though - that brand is usually purchased w/ that in mind from me.

I've had the same three sets of Oxo for at least four years, and they get a workout daily from me.

well in fairness - I've only owned a pearing knife and a few other gadgets.

That's good. I've found them to be useful (in my experiences) - but they never last that long for me - however come to think of it, I've only bought a few other OXO products, never a larger knife or anything like that.

I have a beautiful cheese board with a draw on the bottom, where it holds all the different kinds of knives for cutting various cheeses: soft to very hard. I put that on display at Christmas time with fruit and some Baked Brie en Croute with either raspberries or apricot on top.

I love fancy things like that. Also my fine crystal glasses and china I keep in my China cabinet.

I have a giant bamboo and hardwood apple-shaped cutting board.

yeah sure it's weird it's an apple - but it's humongous, so I don't mind much.

I don't think I own anything from them except my v-slicer and the tongs. I'd buy both again in a heartbeat.

Would you believe, I went to a Home Depot of all places, and got all that for . . . wait for it. . . $35. It was a display unit, and had no box, but still, brand new.

Also got a Stainless steel blender for $10 at the same little kiosk.

Right now I'm using an assortment of cheap Chinese crap my dad bought at Wal-Mart. Visiting him and trying to cook with this junk is hard.
