Below is our “Top 5 pieces of kitchen equipment that we wouldn’t survive without” list. If you don’t have an item on our list, head over to Banks Kitchen Shop and buy them all online.
1 Chopping board – good quality wooden chopping board, expensive but worth it. A good board will last you forever. Never submerge in water, wipe with a hot soapy sponge and then wipe with a dry cloth.Spray with a disinfectant – spray every now and again. Use a plastic board for chicken, meat and fish – rinse with cold water to remove any pieces of meat and then wash with warm soapy water and air dry! 2 Knives – a cooks knife, serrated paring knife and a bread knife are all you need. Keep ‘em sharp, you are more likely to cut yourself with a blunt knife than sharp knives! 3 Scale – you can’t bake without one, a basic ‘weigh-less’ type scale does the trick. 4 Blender or food processor – more uses than we can list. Buy a good quality one and keep it forever, we love the classic Magimix. 5 Set of pots – included in a good quality set of stainless steel pots is a non stick frying pan, good pots will change your life, for the better of course!
