I had the same Nigella whisk, it was my favorite tool in the kitchen. Sadly, mine fell apart years ago.
My mini processor was like $10 and has survived many summers of yummy dips, hummus, guacamole. Also my mandoline slicer. And yes my chef’s knife as well.
Great list. Next time I would love to see pictures of these items!
I have a wooden lemon reamer. I use it constantly. I use my melon baller to remove the core from apples and pears. I also love the micro plane for adding a bit of garlic to a salad dressing. I use mason jars for storing homemade yogurt. I would have a hard time figuring out which tool to let go first if 8 had to.
Great list, but I use my tongs more frequently than any of them.
Besides everything listed, I love my mortar and pestle I love the punch of freshly ground cumin, coriander, fennel, etc. And for muddling mint with sugar for mojitos!
Agreed! Don’t know how I would get by without my mortar and pestle. So useful for grinding up spices.
Bench scraper is great for cutting bar cookies!
My stainless steel 12-inch skillet and chef’s knife. Nothing changed the way I cook for the better than buying a REALLY good knife and skillet.
I have owned the Lemon Squeezer you link to and it is harder to use and it broke after a while. Possibly squeezing to hard. I would recommend this Lemon Juicer.
Just started using the Magimix Cook Expert. A wonderful gadget!
Stick blender and Kitchen Aid mixer. I used the Kitchen Aid mixer yesterday to shred chicken and mix chicken salad.
I have all of this, and almost duplicates of all for my home kitchen and my work bag.
