Kitchen Utensils

Andy R.

Time for a change
As some of u may or may not know or even care for that matter lol. I recently moved into a new flat after a break up with my GF (boohoo me lol). well anyways she kept pretty much everything. I'm pretty much settled now and feeling like i want to start cooking my own meals again, thanks heavens for jacket potatos and pasta n sauces, been pretty much living off them for the last couple of weeks. So If u fine people could recommend some decent stuff to get me on my way, it would be of a great help. ive bought a cassarole dish and some pans. one thing i know i do need is a garlic crusher. other then that im a bit stumped. I am a man after all lol
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Have you got a Home Bargains in Hull? They usually have loads of kitcheny gadgets - good prices too. Failing that Poundland - silicon baking trays and microwave cooking things :)

adding to above - measuring spoons - how else do we accurately measure 1tbsp / 1 tsp of anything? Digital scales. re-usable (silicone?) baking sheet - never use oil again. Oft available in pound shops.

Good knives are a MUST! (I don't do cheap anymore, they end up costing more in the long run)I use my chinese cleaver for nearly everything! Lakeland do good knives on a 3 for 2 offer. And silicon bakeware is wonderful, no need for greasing, even with frylight! And I wouldn't be without my non-stick wok. (or my slow cooker)

wow thanks for all the advice. What i lik about this place always someone lending a hand. i already got digital scales and measuring cups, cos i know how important all that stuff is. I'll def check out that tescos starter kit. and i'll be dropping by BM. i saw some silicone baking trays in there before. they look like fun lol. I'll let the ex know what u said lol.

A cutting board!! Get a decent sized cutting board. It's essential!

And I agree about knives... don't go cheap. One good knife is worth a whole set of cheap ones.

A covered casserole dish is good too. You can put stews in them and cook them really slowly in the oven on a low heat.

A bottle opener is a definate must...a cork screw of course...and a few wine glasses.
I am sure you will be doing plenty of entertaining in the near future...especially when all the ladies find out you're newly single.:p

Has anyone mentioned a potato peeler, thats a must in every good kitchen I think, and maybe a small balloon whisk they are very useful too.

Just thought of something else....a colonder (sp) to strain your veg or pasta in, that will be another useful gadget for you.

Slow cooker is always a good thing to have handy in the kitchen, not really a utensil though .... :)
