Perhaps the worst feeling in the kitchen is approaching a task for which you don’t have the proper tools. Being asked to slice something without a proper knife, or being asked to follow a cake recipe without adequate measuring devices. I was once tasked with making popcorn on the stovetop though none of the lids fit any of the pans appropriate for popcorn. I banged around in the kitchen in frustration, irritating everyone.
This is why I love my kitchen tools. They perform. They are elegant. They enhance the experience of cooking. My flat edged wood spoons, for instance, are perfect for stirring anything in a pot. My offset spoons are lovely to behold and a pleasure to use (Mac and I were able to patent the design). Our meat mallet is featured first in this month’s Bon Appetit Gift Guide. I will never have a kitchen that doesn’t include our bamboo scrubber, which scrapes off baked-on cheese, eggs, scorched milk then rinses clean.
