The kitchen is the heart of every home. Whether you’re the next Gordon Ramsey or just starting out, there are some essentials that every adult needs to have in their kitchen.  

From non-stick pots and pans to chef-quality knives, we break down the basics you will need to equip your kitchen for culinary success. Happy cooking! 

Quality pots and pans 

Even the most amateur home cook will be able to whip up a delicious meal with the right non-stick pot and pan set. From frying and sautéing to baking and roasting, these durable beauties will go the distance and last for years with proper maintenance. 

A full set of knives 

There’s nothing like a blunt knife to make you dread cooking. With a good knife, you can slice, dice, mince, and julienne like a 5-star chef. If you’re not ready for a full set, start with a chef’s knife and a paring knife and build your collection in time with your skills. 

Differently-sized oven trays 

Oven trays come in all shapes and sizes, and each has its own specific uses. Small trays are perfect for baking cookies, while larger ones are ideal for roasting meats. In between, there are all sorts of sizes that can be used for a variety of different dishes. 

Silicone cooking utensils 

No kitchen would be complete without a set of silicone cooking utensils. Made from durable, heat-resistant silicone, these versatile tools can be used for a variety of tasks, from stirring and scooping to baking and cooking. In addition, they are non-stick, easy to clean and come in a variety of vibrant colours. 

A blender 

A blender or blender stick is a kitchen essential for every home because it provides a quick and easy way to make healthy meals and snacks. With a blender, you can whip up smoothies, soups, sauces, dressings, and dips in minutes. A blender is incredibly versatile – you can use it to grind coffee beans, chop vegetables, or even make baby food.
