Good tools are the first ingredient for a successful dinner. It should do well its function, durable and preferably look nice.
Each kitchen has utensils. If you want to prepare a good recipe you will first need to have good cooking tools. This is therefore the first ingredient for a good dinner. I have here a list with the most important and good quality made cookware:
It has many function and is really tough. Asian cooks use the chopper for nearly all cutting jobs. The design allows for much cutting force while it is still not too heavy in the hand. You can use it to chop and bruising (garlic), to cut ingredients on the blade of the knife and to transport ingredients to the pan. It costs a tenner in the shop for the medium size, and up to 250 euros for a large blade of the highest quality.
Among the most famous brand, Laguiole knives are sold in all colors and qualities. They look nearly all wonderful. All are entirely in stainless steel or with handles of metal, but the quality varies widely. Internet versions are relatively cheap to buy, but that does not last long. Buy them in a reliable store, with guarantee.
Opt for espresso machine that can handle loose coffee and pads. You can quickly make espresso with a pad, but also different types of coffee. The machine only need to heat water to 92 degrees Celsius, and compress the coffee with sufficient pressure. Ignore the bells and whistles and choose a machine that can handle pressure and temperature for years.
Invest in silicone spatulas, oven gloves, pan-handles: all kinds of things are now made of this wonderful, flexible material. Kitchenware made of silicone is heat-resistant to 300 degrees Celsius, so you put a spatula in the pan, it will not melt. And instead of aluminum foil, you can put a silicone baking sheet in the oven for homemade pizza.
Good wine glasses costs 20 euro, but good wine deserves crystal. It is not because of its extremely beauty, but because with the tough crystal, scratches can barely occur and odors can not linger. Moreover, crystal glasses are thinner than the other kind of glasses. Riedel, Spiegelau, Schott Zwiesel have all the beautiful glass.
Advanced cooking and dining dishes is unfortunately accompanied with a mountain of washing job. And after the dessert you want to linger at the table with your guests not do the washing. Do not doubt, and buy a dishwasher. From about 350 euros you have already one that makes frugal use of energy and water. Thus you save each day soon a half hour of washing dishes.
Cutting boards of wood are banned from the restaurant kitchen for hygiene reasons, but knives are most made of wood. The solution coming out of the United States. Epicurean makes cutting boards of pressed wood: hard, light, sweet to your blades and resistant to the dishwasher, which deals with bacteria.
Pan with loose stem
One of the best ways to prepare meat, is to put it in hot butter or oil and bake until it is browned, and then slide over in the pan. With the heat from all sides, the meat is cooked gradually and not quickly dried out. An ovenproof pan which can rotate the handle from, provides good services.
Do not waste your money on:
- A grill in your oven. It sounds very culinary and attractive, but it does not. Barbecuing is an outdoor activity. The cleaning of the grill in addition takes a lot of time and effort
- Devices to sharpen your knives. It costs almost 50 euro and the result is rarely satisfactory. At cooking stores you can usually get a professional knife sharpening for 5 to 12.50 euros per knife
- Corkscrews which are more expensive than a bottle of wine. If you like such a gigantic equipment to uncork bottles along, buy especially one.
- Expensive woks with non-stick coatings. The ingredients for successful woks are: a very large gas burner on your stove and a steel wok that you buy for a tenner at the shop. A non-stick wok is not hot enough.
