The kitchen tools are one of the most important rooms in the house, but it’s also among the most expensive rooms to furnish. That’s why you want to make sure you use your kitchen tools wisely and buy only those that are truly necessary. There are so many different kitchen tools on the market today, which makes it hard to decide which ones you really need and which ones are just there to take up space in your kitchen cabinet.

Dish Drying Rack

Instead of leaving dishes in a sink full of water to soak, consider using a dish drying rack. It will keep your plates and glasses from sitting in standing water, making them less likely to become cloudy. Also, you won’t have to spend time scrubbing away stubborn food that won’t come off with just a rinse. And if you haven’t heard of them before, multi-use kitchen gadgets like baking sheets and muffin tins are also good alternatives for drying dishes. These can help save time—and space—when you don’t have room in your cupboards for multiple racks. Best of all, they’re usually less expensive than buying something specifically designed for drying dishes.

Kitchen Utensils

A kitchen utensil is a tool used in food preparation. Kitchen utensils are usually made of plastic, wood, or metal. They are typically hand-held and designed to allow for handling of hot foods as well as cold foods and liquids. Some cooking utensils may be multi-purpose tools with several functions. Examples include meat forks (which often have holes in one end), spatulas, slotted spoons (in which foods can rest while they drain), and turners. Food preparation utensils may also serve double duty as kitchen decorations. Wooden spoons and spatulas may be decorated by sanding their handles or painting their designs onto them; metallic serving implements such as tongs may be fashioned into decorative bookends.

Vegetable Peeler

If you buy fruit and vegetables with their skins on, you’ll probably use a vegetable peeler at some point. With so many different kinds of vegetable peelers to choose from, it’s hard to know which one is best. Our recommendation is to get a classic swivel-blade variety that features various sizes of blades for different kinds of produce. You’ll be able to peel everything from bananas and kiwis to potatoes and zucchini without needing any attachments or special gadgets. While we love ceramic peelers (and have previously recommended them), metal is more common because it’s sturdier and more functional.

Ceramic peelers also tend to chip easier than metal ones. Best of all, ceramic peels don’t rust like metal varieties do, making them excellent for storage in wet areas where other implements might rust away. Another great thing about these types of peels is that they’re low maintenance; just give them a quick scrub before using each time and rinse afterward and you won’t have to worry about discoloration or buildup.

Air Fryer

Have you ever wanted to eat French fries but didn’t want to feel guilty about it after? The solution is here! An air fryer is a kitchen tool that can do everything from baking cookies, roasting vegetables, cooking bacon, and deep-frying foods. It uses hot air to cook food instead of oil for a low-fat alternative that maintains flavor and texture. These tools have become very popular in recent years. However, before jumping on board with anyone model make sure it has all of your favorite features. Some come with adjustable temperature controls while others include preset buttons. So you don’t have to figure out how long foods take to cook yourself.


Cooking spatulas are a must-have in any kitchen. Spatulas allow you to easily spread, flip, and lift foods in your skillet or on your griddle. Choose spatulas with flexible silicone heads for easy maneuvering and metal or wooden handles for sturdy gripping. When it comes to food prep, having a variety of sizes on hand allows you to cook anything you want with ease. If you have only one spatula, we recommend buying a larger one that can handle all your cooking needs from turning pancakes to flipping burgers.

For smaller tasks like spreading mayonnaise on sandwiches or cookies, choose one that is thin but still strong enough to perform well at high temperatures. 18/8 stainless steel knife block. A good set of knives should be sharpened before use, kept clean, dry, and stored properly. The knife block prevents dulling from contact with other knives or utensils and keeps your knives safe during storage (think kids). The best knife blocks are made from 18/8 stainless steel which prevents rust build up around your blades that can cause pitting. These types of blocks often come with a magnet strip attached so they fit securely on kitchen counters and prevent sliding when preparing food.

Frying Pan


The frying pan is a round-bottomed cooking vessel, usually made of metal. It is used for sautéing or frying foods on both sides, to cook foods such as omelets and fried eggs, among others. The term frying pan covers a wide variety of pots and pans with varying shapes and materials but having flat bottoms. Although sometimes they have handles (like skillets), they generally do not have lids. If a lid is present, it will be so dome-shaped that it serves only to keep food from splattering against the ceiling rather than preventing access to any steam or smoke given off by boiling food below.

Baking Tray


A baking tray is a rectangular-shaped tray used to cook foods. It’s basically a platter with raised edges, which make it easy to transport baked goods. Look for heavy-duty non-stick aluminum or stainless steel baking trays that have plenty of space to fit your recipe’s ingredients (like a 14×14 sheet cake pan) without crowding. We use our baking trays often for cooking pancakes and roasting vegetables. But you can also use them for baking cookies, brewing beer, searing meat, and more! They’ll keep your food from spilling onto your oven racks while still making cleanup a breeze.


 If you’re looking for new ways to cook at home, then these are some of the most popular kitchen tools that you should have. A wooden spoon, a wooden cutting board, and a chef’s knife can take your cooking game to new heights. Cookware will keep you from burning food in those troublesome pots and pans that no one wants to use. And baking supplies like measuring cups, baking sheets, rolling pins, and muffin tins will make it easier than ever to bake tasty treats at home.
