How to Outfit A Kitchen

Tuesday, April 1, 2008
In continuing the theme I began last Wednesday on kitchen related posts, I figured that today I would talk about the bare minimum of necessities for your kitchen. First the list:
  • Wooden Spoons
  • Cast Iron Frying Pans
  • Enamel Coated Dutch Oven
  • Stand Mixer
  • Food Processor
  • Collander
  • Food Grater
  • Loaf Pans
  • Muffin Pans
  • Casserole Dish
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Baking Sheets
In my kitchen I use only wooden spoons, because they tend not to retain odors and taste like plastic spoons do. Plus wood is biodegradable unlike plastic.
I use cast iron because they retain heat and are (once properly seasoned) easy to clean. My Dutch Oven is also cast iron but mine is covered in enamel. The cast iron for the heat retention again, and the enamel to make it dishwasher safe.
These are essential for most of the cooking that I do. The rest are primarily used for baking. I have found the stand mixer to be the easiest since I don't have to stand there and hold the bowl and the mixer for extended periods of time.
If anyone out there thinks that I forgot something please comment and let us all know.

Blessed Be!
