8 Must-Have Kitchen Essentials For Regular Use

Kitchen Essentials For Regular Use


As we began our search for the best cookware and essential kitchen tools for minimalist cooks, we were overwhelmed with confusion and frustration. The learning curve is enormous when you start with no prior experience.

As a result, we have compiled a comprehensive list of information about common kitchen tools, including their functions, quality, and features to assist you in selecting the best kitchen tool for your needs.

Measuring Spoons

Compared to measuring cups, measuring spoons are used to precisely measure smaller quantities of liquid or solid cooking ingredients. The Broomy offers a set of five stainless steel measuring spoons with capacities ranging from 14 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon. Because they are nested and magnetic, you won’t have to worry about losing any of them when storing them (a common occurrence with smaller spoons).

In addition, they are dishwasher-safe and designed to accommodate both liquids and solids. After trying a few different sets of measuring spoons, we decided on this set for ourselves and use them every day in the kitchen. for more cleaning hacks see the list of brushes available in market.

Mixing Bowls

A set of high-quality mixing bowls is essential for combining marinades, sauces, spice rubs, salad dressings, and even leftovers.

Because it is made of glass, this nine-piece mixing bowl set can be used for almost anything and won’t absorb odors or stains. Additionally, these bowls stack easily for straightforward storage.


A colander is a must-have item for a minimalist kitchen because it can be used to drain pasta and wash vegetables and salad greens. Our 5-quart stainless steel colander has ergonomic, non-slip handles and “feet” to prevent it from slipping all over the place.

Since this is a product that won’t break even if you tried, buy this colander with five stars and you won’t need to buy another one for the rest of your life.

Vegetable Peeler

Whether you’re peeling potatoes, carrots, or any other vegetable, a vegetable peeler can significantly cut down on preparation time.

This is a high-quality peeler that will withstand time, so there is no need for multitasking here. Like all of our other recommendations, it is designed ergonomically and safe for the dishwasher.

Potato Masher

Despite their usefulness, potato mashers typically have a bulky design that makes it difficult to close drawers. There are a few important reasons why we chose this flip potato masher.

First, it “flips,” which indicates that, unlike the majority of potato mashers, it is not a bulky tool to store in a drawer. Second, it is dishwasher-safe and made of high-quality stainless steel without BPA, making it simple to clean. Thirdly, it is highly recommended and only has five stars on Amazon. Using this high-quality potato masher is a no-brainer.


At Mealime, inefficiency is one thing we don’t like. So, exactly what does this imply? It emphasizes using tools that serve multiple purposes rather than just one. Why not select a single tool that is capable of doing everything rather than purchasing a zester, chiffonade, and grater of varying types?

This 7-in-1 box grater has a ginger grater and can grate citrus, parmesan, fine, coarse, ultra-coarse, shave, and slice. It is made of premium stainless steel and has a long lifespan.

Garlic Press

We still own this garlic press, but we use it less these days. Pick up this highly-rated garlic press if you don’t like playing with garlic and want a quick solution. However, you might want to pass on this item if you don’t mind crushing and chopping your own garlic.

Over the years, we’ve experimented with garlic presses and are currently aboard the “non-essential” train. In general, a garlic press is useful and makes it easier to crush the garlic. However, using only a chef’s knife to cut and press your own garlic is not that difficult at all, and doing so is also oddly satisfying.

Stainless Steel Skillet

A skillet made of stainless steel will probably be your kitchen’s mainstay. This cookware can be used for frying, searing, sautéing, browning, and other tasks. Choosing a skillet made of high-quality stainless steel that you can use for a lifetime is therefore essential.

For all of our cookware, their skillet is no exception. It has a “helper” handle that makes it easier to carry heavy loads without tipping and is made of high-quality stainless steel. In addition, considering its quality, it is an excellent value. Definitely recommend.

Final Thoughts

Fully stocking a minimalist and effective kitchen with cookware need not be difficult or expensive. You can have a fully stocked kitchen that will last a lifetime if you only buy high-quality multipurpose items with a strong value proposition.
