It's all very well saying a bad workman blames his tools, but the reality is that if you don't have the right kit, making dinner can take longer and be more difficult than it needs. This comes from a woman who has spent two years making her cakes in a blender (It doesn't work! Give up! Buy a bloody mixer and be done with it woman!) so I know what I'm talking about. Here is a directory of the kit which has made our life easier.
Clever egg timer - make the perfect soft boiled eggs with absolutely no effort
Potato ricer - cheffy mash and you don't even need to peel the potatoes. Perfect.
Goodness gravy!- perfect gravy with NO effort with a gravy skimmer
Freezer pens - avoid Unidentified Frozen Objects
Vegetable peelers - it's the little things that count
Weaning spoons - bamboo and beautiful
Bowls! - I know, amazing, who'd have though it! Ok, it is slightly more complicated than that; oven proof individual ramekin thingies
Ice cream maker - ok, so it will clog up your cupboards, but it's worth it
To mix or not to mix - Kenwood or, sigh, KitchenAid
Apron - you don't actually need this, it won't make you cook better, but it will make you beautiful. Honest.
Poached egg pods - take away the faff of egg poaching
Silicone spatulas - oh the joy!
