Updated: Jul 11, 2020

Hello! Cooking can be really frustrating and laborious without the right tools. So here is a list of 12 must have kitchen essentials that can make your life a whole lot easier.

So go ahead and be a chef-on-a-budget and don't ever look back and think ''oh, i could've made that.''

1.Knives: If you're cooking you are gonna need a knife!

There are three basic knives that you'll need:

1 Chef's knife: a multi purpose knife used for mincing, slicing, chopping and what not.

2 Serrated knife: which is ideal for slicing through vegetables and a loaf of bread.

3 Paring knife: ideal for peeling fruits and for more intricate work like deveining a shrimp or cutting for garnishes!

However, if you're just starting to cook and you're on a budget a chefs knife will do just fine as you'll use it for 90% of your food prep.

I recommend the Messer chef knife!

3.Measuring cups: Again, a very crucial tool to ace almost any recipe! especially if you like to bake or are a newbie to cooking.
