Every avid home chef has a dream list of equipment they covet more than anything in the world. For everyone this list may vary, but there are some constants across all lists. Those who cook want to be better at what they do. While in most cases the equipment does not make the chef, having good equipment can make the job of the chef easier.
One of the most covet able kitchen pieces is the Kitchen Aid Artisan stand mixer. This is an iconic appliance that everyone recognizes. There are so many different colors and attachments, there is something that will appeal to everyone. The craftsmanship is impeccable which makes them both beautiful and durable.
This mixer can make every kitchen job easier. A high powered motor makes creaming butter a breeze while having enough juice to knead bread doughs. The accessorizing capabilities make this more than a simple mixer. With a number of attachments it can be turned into a meat grinder, a grain mill, of even an ice cream maker.
A roasting pan is another necessity for any kitchen. It can be used for large batch cooking as well as the roasting of poultry and other large cuts of meat. They can come in a wide range of quality and prices, as well as sizes.
When looking for a roasting pan it is important to buy one that is high quality. Be sure that the pan is heavy so it conducts heat well. The sides should be at least three inches tall to contain any food you put in as well as any liquids that might be released. Handles should be firmly riveted, sturdy, and easy to grab. Make sure they are large enough to grab with oven mitts on.
If you are one of those chefs that has practically everything for cooking, you might consider getting a Cameron Cookware stainless steel stovetop smoker. These can be seen on Iron Chef America fairly often, and having one at home can take your cuisine to the next level.
Smoky flavor is close to many people’s hearts, ham and bacon are just a few examples. Most people do not make smoked food at home because the process has traditionally been very long and requires specific skills. Having a stovetop smoker allows for quick and easy smoked foods in your house in just minutes. Smoking also adds great flavor without the use of added fats, oils, or salt.
Any of these items will bring new spark to your kitchen routine. All of these pieces will be great additions to any house.
