In honor of Worship Tools Day, I am going to share all of my favorite kitchen tools with you. You have seen most of them many times in the past, but you may not know what they were or why I can’t live without them. I have picked out the tools and gadgets that I use on a daily basis, or almost daily basis.

Baking Pans Silpat cookingwithcurls.com

Baking Sheets – I have 3 of these pans and use them constantly. Roasting vegetables, baking breads/rolls, cookies, the possibilities are endless. I have shown it with the Silpat Mats, because these are the greatest inventions since white bread! I also have 3 Air Bake cookie sheets that I use when sticking will not be a problem (I forgot to take a photo of them).

Bamboo Spatulas cookingwithcurls.com

Bamboo Spatulas – These are a must when making stir fry! They are also perfect for breaking up ground meat. These are almost 20 years old and still going strong.

Bench Knife and Rolling Pin cookingwithcurls.com

Bench Knife – I use it to cut a ball of dough into smaller equal portions. Then I use it to scrape the flour off the marble board when I am done rolling out the dough!

Bread Knife cookingwithcurls.com

Calphalon Bread Knife – Perfect for slicing homemade bread and tomatoes.

Can Opener cookingwithcurls.com

KitchenAid Can Opener – Not only does it match my kitchen, it is the easiest can open to use that I have found.

Ceramic Grater cookingwithcurls.com

Kyocera Grater – A must have for grating fresh ginger and whole nutmeg! Just don’t use anything hard to scrape the contents out, you will break off the little teeth…but it still works!

Chef Knife cookingwithcurls.com

Chicago Cutlery Chef Knife – Perfect size and easy to sharpen.

Colander cookingwithcurls.com

Joseph Joseph Colander – This colander is awesome! The handle you see on the left, holds it in place on the center divider in your sink. Just set it in place, fill it, and the water drains away without having to hold it. Yes, it has feet on the bottom as well.

Cutting Boards cookingwithcurls.com

The plastic boards on the left, are used for cutting raw meat…only raw meat. Then stick them in the dishwasher to clean them.

The Epicurean in the center is perfect for cutting juicy cooked meats. The groove keeps all of the juices on the board, and not on your floor.

The bamboo boards (I have several sizes) are perfect for cutting up vegetables, mincing garlic, whatever. Just remember to oil them every once in a while to keep them looking new.

Digital Scale cookingwithcurls.com

Digital Scale – A must have to weighing dough. Yes some people weight their flour and sugar, but I’m old school and like my measuring cups.

Dutch Oven cookingwithcurls.com

Le Creuset Dutch Oven – Love, love, love this Dutch oven. I had a cheap one from Target (sorry Giada), but it started to rust and the enamel on the bottom was cracking. Plus, it was too small for a large roast. I finally broke down and bought this gorgeous Carribean Blue baby and I absolutely love it!!!

Garlic Rocker cookingwithcurls.com

Joseph Joseph Garlic Rocker – Just peel your garlic, push the garlic rocker back and forth a few times, and you have minced garlic! Ingenious!!! It’s also really easy to clean.

Hand Mixer cookingwithcurls.com

KitchenAid Hand Mixer – This is the mixer that I won, and not a moment too soon. I have an identical green one that stopped working. The crazy thing is, the crystal blue mixer is made in the USA. The green one is made in China. Do not understand. Try and find one made in the USA if possible. I had problems with the green one pretty much since I bought it. It made weird clunking noises when in use, then burned up while I was mixing cookie filling!

Kitchen Shears cookingwithcurls.com

Kuhn Rikon Kitchen Shears – Cuts herbs and plastic bags quite nicely. They also come completely apart for easy cleaning.

Measuring Cups cookingwithcurls.com

Stainless Steel Measuring Cups – Perfect shape, easy to hold, easy to scrape the top even. I just love these! They replaced my flimsy plastic ones.

Measuring Spoons cookingwithcurls.com

Stainless Steel Measuring Spoons – Nice thin design to fit inside spice jars! Come in all the necessary sizes.

Microplane cookingwithcurls.com

Microplane – Perfect to zest limes and lemons. Finely grated Parmesan cheese, even chocolate!

Mini Wire Whisk cookingwithcurls.com

Mini Wire Whisk – This is a Pampered Chef product that I absolutely love! I use it to make the glaze for my cocktail cakes, stirring a roux for gravy, any task that a balloon whisk is too big for.

Non Stick Skillet cookingwithcurls.com

Non-stick Skillets – 8″ for omelets, 10″ for sauteing vegetables, 12″ for juicy hamburgers. Perfect anytime you don’t want your food to stick.

Pastry Brush cookingwithcurls.com

Silicone Brush – I use this cute little one for small items…egg wash, melted butter on burger buns.

Pyrex Measuring Cups cookingwithcurls.com

Pyrex Glass Measuring Cups Set – These are awesome for measuring liquids…easy to read. I also had some Anchor Hocking cups, but the lettering rubbed off! These are vintage and I love them.

Rolling Pin cookingwithcurls.com

Wood Rolling Pin – This is awesome because it is so long, it doesn’t leave marks. It is easy to control the pressure because it is all one piece.

Rubber Spatulas cookingwithcurls.com

Rubber Spoonula and Spatulas – Won’t melt, pretty colors, lot of shapes and sizes.

Plastic Spatula cookingwithcurls.com

KitchenAid Plastic Spatula – A must with non stick pans, but strong enough to work in any situation.

SS Sauce Pans cookingwithcurls.com

Calphalon Saucepans – These are part of a set. I have multiple sizes that are perfect for cooking rice, sauces, steaming vegetables. They have glass lids so you can see the contents without having to remove the lid!

SS SKillet cookingwithcurls.com

Calphalon 5 quart Saute Pan – I use this for just about everything! I am sure you have seen it numerous times already.

Stock Pot cookingwithcurls.com

Calphalon 6 quart Stock Pot – This is what I boil noodles, potatoes, and eggs in.

Tongs cookingwithcurls.com

Rubber Tipped Tongs – Gotta have tongs! Salads, noodles, anything that needs to be picked up.

Vintage Pyrex Mixing Bowl cookingwithcurls.com

Vintage Pyrex Mixing Bowl – I grew up using this bowl…then it left when I did! I found several smaller sized bowls on ebay, so now I have a complete set. I also bought and extra one, just in case mine were to ever break.

Wire Strainer cookingwithcurls.com

Spider Strainer – I use it to remove items from hot water. I think it came as part of a set with my wok, I love the silly thing.

Wire Whisk cookingwithcurls.com

Wire Balloon Whisk – This is my go to whisk for baking. It is strong, the wires don’t bend, and it has a nice handle.

Wow, that turned out much longer than I expected! I am able to cook the way I do, because of the tools that I have. Each and every one of these gadgets makes my life easier. My son will be buying his first home soon and will be moving out. He’s not much of a cook, but at least now he can look at this post and figure out what he needs to stock his new kitchen. Okay who am I kidding, I bought all new green and aqua tools last year and put all of my old red and black tools in a box for him so he doesn’t really need much to get started 🙂

What’s your favorite kitchen tool/gadget that you would add to Worship Tools Day?

  1. Thank you for the advice to find an American made Kitchen Aid hand mixer. I gave my KA stand mixer to my daughter & bought, what else, a KA hand mixer. I was so disappointed. One of the beaters broke within a few months & we put up with the broken “spoke” for another few months. My husband started to look on line for a place to buy a replacement beater, ordered it & kept getting messages that they were out of stock. We finally gave up & bought another stand mixer, a Viking. We are happy with it, but for what we use it for, it is over kill.

  2. Gotta have my pyrex cups, bowls and casserole dishes. My microplane is used almost daily, and I likewise love my spider. I’m hoping to get some silpats and a good stand mixer soon.
