Homemade foods are better for our health and we all agree on that. Cooking is an essential life-skill that we should all try to learn. Despite popular belief, cooking is one of the easiest skills to master. Having the right tools and ingredients will heighten your cooking game to the next level.
In this story, we will focus on the tools you require in your home kitchen to cook like a professional. Not personal per se but, a great cook none-the-less and the time required to get better at cooking is surprisingly low. Let’s get to it.

Sharp Knifes

Knives come first when you think of a kitchen. That’s the gadget you will be using to cut down the vegetables or the meat. Having a set of sharp knives will carry you on your cooking journey. One of the first skills of cooking is to learn to use the knife.
A good knife will be sharp and precise. The knife’s precision will depend on the handle as a balanced knife is much more precise than a knife with an unbalanced body shape. Look for balance and a good handle.

Chopping Board

When you are using the knife to cut veggies you need to have a base. A chopping board is used as a base where the ingredients are kept as you are murdering them with the knife. Chopping boards prevent damage. You can also carry the ingredients with your chopping board which adds to transportability.

Set of Pots

You can cut food with a knife but can’t cook them in it. For cooking, you need lots of different sizes. Invest your money on whatever pot you might need. Different size enables you to cook foods of different sizes and quantities.


Pans like the frying pans make cooking faster and easier. While you can cook with pots no problem, pans are faster to operate and great for frying food. Different foods and ingredients with a different cooking process will require different equipment.

Mixing Bowls

An essential kitchen tool. You cannot mix anything like a cake without them. For mixing eggs or any other liquid, you require mixing bowls. There are many other uses for mixing bowls as they can be used as a traditional bowl as well.

Spoons, Spatulas, Tongs, and Whisks

All these come in handy when you are cooking. Wooden spoons are great for making soups and preparing sauces. Whisks are essential when making any curry-type recipes. Spatulas are handy when you need to flip something like an omelet.


You will need a stove to be able to cook the food. Depending on your need and circumstance the type of stove will differ. You can visit the ILVE website to figure out what you might need. Stove range from basic to premium to professional grade. For home, a decent-sized stove will be enough for you.

Final Words

These are the most important things you will need to get started. There are other types of equipment that you will need for the sake of convenience later-on. A kitchen is an area that will eventually be filled with equipment and tools but starting simple and working your way up is a better strategy.
