    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.
    Thanks
    Andy

    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 :)

    *is a bargain hunter* :D

    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)

    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.
