From whisks to woks, we’ve got you covered.
Building an efficient kitchen—one that allows you to cook with relative ease and experiment with different and exotic cuisines—is not something that happens overnight. You acquire a (hopefully) great and durable piece here and there and, sometimes in the middle, pick up whatever you can find at your local grocery store (here’s looking at you, aluminum-foil pans). We’re here to help. Ahead, we’ve rounded up a list of our favorite cooking essentials to ease your journey into the kitchen. Whether you’re cooking alone or with family, for yourself or for a friend, we guarantee these 12 products will come in handy.
