4 Tips for Making Kitchen Equipment Upgrades

For a cook, there’s no bigger joy than slicing a fish open with the top o’ the line chef’s knife that puts the blades from those Japanese cartoons to shame.

Or tenderizing the meat with a delicate hammer-like structure that allows you to apply just the right amount of pressure to the muscle fibers of the deceased animal. Or how about you abandon the boring practice of hacking at vegetables for half an hour and simply chuck the lot in a food processor!

You’ll get a smooth, pulpy matter ready to be used in further cooking.

In this article, we’ll be giving you some tips on how you can improve your kitchen by introducing some new tools and pieces of technology, as well as taking some protective measures along the way.

Right then, without further ado, here’s the deal.

4 Tips for Kitchen Equipment Upgrades

1) A Wok

Although it pretty much goes without saying that any cook worth their salt already has a pan or a similar wok-like structure in their kitchen, owning a wok to call your own is something else, really.

This seemingly cooking utensil actually has excellent characteristics that enable you to use it for a wide variety of cooking ‘disciplines’, so to speak. Whether it’s steaming, stir frying, smoking, stewing, searing, or poaching, this traditional Chinese pan can do wonders.

This thing’s sure to make your kitchen look like an abode of a professional cook!

2) Fire Protection

One of the important aspects of a kitchen build that often gets unjustly overcooked … ehrm … overlooked, by cooks would be the fire protection.

Indeed, out of all rooms in your house, the kitchen is the most likely one to fall victim to an accidental fire. Whether it’s a gas bottle leakage, or you’ve been too rambunctious with the hot water and some oil, fires can break out easily, but they can be difficult to put out.

This is why you need to have a fire extinguisher ready at all times, as well as a system of fire ducts installed. (For the latter one, you will probably require professional help, as well.)

3) Slow Cooker

This cheeky-looking pot represents a sort of contraption that can cook your food for you – without any input other than the fact that you’d need to set the time and temperature before you start.

The great thing about this thing is that it allows you to prepare one extra meal during your cooking session, while you’re free to prepare other dishes on your stove!

As far as the functionality of this thing is concerned, the deal couldn’t be more straightforward – you do some button-pressin’, put the ingredients in, and then hit the start button. Depending on how you’ve set your timer, you come back a couple of hours later et voila! – your roast beef with veggies is ready!

4) Meat Thermometer

Although an experienced chef may be confident enough in their skills of determining to what degree the meat has been cooked, a rookie can struggle in this particular are. So, how about we introduce a certain je ne sais quoi aspect to the meat preparation process! (Well, actually, it would rather be ‘je sais quoi’ because it’s a meat thermometer.)

A meat thermometer! The sort of apparatus that can hide the fact you have no idea at what temperature a salmon should be roasted. Quite useful, indeed.

Now, this wasn’t, by any means, a detailed list, as we purposefully avoided fridges and freezers assuming most kitchens already have them. (If you are, in fact, a freezer short – do get one instead of the meat thermometer! Or get both, why not?)

Bottom line, any kitchen can be improved by a couple of high-tech innovations here and there, and the lucky chef on the receiving end of these improvements will be tackling tough beef and stubborn artichokes much more easily!
