Here are some basic items needed in the kitchen. I will keep adding to the list as time goes by.

These Items are tools that I have purchased for the kitchen which you can’t really do without, there are obviously thousands of other products out there with prices ranging from just pence to extreme amounts. I will be adding to this page some of the items I have bought and used, also others which I haven’t so up to you.

Also I hope to find and be adding hints, tips and tricks to help in the kitchen remembering the name of my site jamesbasic.kitchen .

Mixing bowls you can get away with just one but when it comes to using a sieve for draining, or mixing or melting chocolate you will find having various sizes a great help.

When it comes to knives there are so many to choose from, by purchasing a block of knives you will find that they will be all you will probably need. There’s not always a need to go out and purchase individual ones with prices so high you would expect them to be made of gold ! But also you don’t want to really purchase the cheapest either.

As with many items, chopping boards are one where there are so many to choose from, which I find quite confusing at times, it can be difficult to decide what you want or need depending what its going to be used for, you have size, colour, thickness, design, material its made of, use of the board and what sort of kitchen, be it domestic use at home or commercial in the workplace.

When baking pastry a brush will come in handy for coating the pastry with egg wash to give a nice colour when baked, or when brushing or basting meats with butter or oils. There are many brushes available with different designs, makeup, sizes.

This link has a few things to help and consider when purchasing a brush.
