While can openers, chopping boards, and utensils are only a few of the things you need in your kitchen, there are also a few extras that you definitely won’t regret buying. 

These kitchen things will improve your kitchen’s functionality, enhance your culinary skills, and even save you time and hassle. 

Quality Knives And Storage

Quality kitchen knives can transform your culinary skills from amateur to pro in a short time; a quality knife makes a massive difference in cutting, slicing, chopping, and dicing.

And with a quality knife set, you’ll also need the right storage accessory; a knife block or a magnetic wall belt are good options. In addition to proper storage, a sharpening stone is also required to keep the blades sharp and in good condition. A quality knife set can last a lifetime or longer with proper storage, cleaning, and storage. 

Universal Silicone Pot Lids

It can be exceptionally frustrating to find yourself scratching around in drawers and cupboards in an endless search for a particular pot lid. And you might not be able to continue cooking until you find it if you don’t have a universal silicone pot lid, that is. 

These innovative silicone creations can be stretched to fit most pots, and they generally come in sets of three universal sizes; small, medium, and large. You definitely won’t regret buying these, as you won’t ever have to search for a missing lid again. 

A Digital Kitchen Scale

These are pretty useful to have around, and especially if you enjoy baking. It can be a real challenge to bake anything without properly measuring the ingredients from the recipe. And this is where cooking and baking differ mainly; you don’t have to use precise measurements for cooking mouth-watering meals. 

And a digital scale is a pocket-friendly appliance as well, so it won’t set you out your budget all that much either. 

A Blender

A blender might not be a kitchen essential, although it is definitely one that you won’t regret buying. There’s so much that you can do with this kitchen appliance that you’ll probably find yourself using it pretty often, whether making margaritas, your healthy morning smoothies, mouth-watering soups for dinner, or other delicious things. 

And because you’ll likely make good use of this appliance, it will be worth your while to opt for quality; a good blender can last several years if taken care of properly. 

Silicone Baking Molds

Silicone is perfectly suitable for baking molds as the material is exceptionally heat and cold tolerant; it can withstand oven temperatures of over 420 degrees Fahrenheit. These baking molds can also go straight from the oven to the freezer. 

And if that’s not really enough to convince you that you should invest in a few silicone baking molds, they are also suitable to use in the microwave, and they are both dishwasher-safe and effortless to clean. The bendability of these molds also means you won’t ever find yourself breaking your cupcakes or muffins as you ever battle to remove your baked goods.
