As Wolfgang Puck would say, 2021 is a year for us to live, love, and eat! As a matter of fact, some of the hungrier of us would easily confuse each one of those things with the other. After all, who doesn’t enjoy a nice and hearty meal?
It is a good idea to save some money this year though and start attempting to create restaurant-quality dishes right from the comfort of home. After all, if they can do it, why can’t you? In order for you to unlock your inner Gordon Ramsay this year though, you will need the right equipment!
Having the right equipment can really make or break the cooking experience for you. Having a nice puree wouldn’t exactly be possible, for example, if you don’t have the right tools to give it the texture and softness that it needs to be as delicious as it can possibly be. If you make something like a beef Wellington without the right oven, you probably won’t get the right temperature and the beef could come out either undercooked or overcooked. So here are some of the best kitchen gadgets that can allow you to unlock your inner chef in 2021:
Sure most of us love a nice cup of coffee, but it is nice to have coffee that is more refined and fresh than the kind that you just take out of a pack and stir with a little bit of hot water. You want to make coffee that is straight from the beans, which will give you the fullness of the aroma and the best possible experience to perk up your morning. Having that said, a nice coffee grinder is one of the best investments that you can make.
More than any other fruit, avocados have seen a huge jump in popularity over the years. People have used avocados more frequently in their recipes now whether it is for their burritos, salads, toast, or even their coffee!
Because this fruit is incredibly versatile, you also need tools that can help you slice it in ways that are most useful to you. That is where avocado slicers come in. Never worry about slices that are too thick or too thin ever again! Plus, you do not have to worry about wasting pieces of avocado by removing the pit with a spoon anymore.
For you to become the best home cook that you can possibly be, you also need different types of spatulas and that is where a good spatula set comes in. Silicon spatulas may be great for cooking heavily fried food, but a nice wooden spatula fits better when making pasta dishes.
Ice Pop Molds
Lastly, ice pop molds are very inexpensive but very useful things to have in your cooking arsenal and an excellent way to beat the heat, especially that Summer is right around the corner! This is especially useful if you have children or if you are someone with a perennial sweet tooth.
With these tools, you will be closer to having that complete kitchen set that you have always dreamed of this year. Remember, excellent cooking is something that you can only unlock when you have the right amount of passion for it. Passion is something that comes from within though, but it can always be enhanced with a few nifty external tools that you can add to your ever-growing arsenal.
Don’t let the 2021 blues keep you from making the best food that you and your family can enjoy. This is your year to truly shine as an incredible home cook!
