- One of the most essential and best-utilised utensils in your kitchen that you will end up using the most are spoons and spatulas, so it is always the best that when you go out to buy them you pay little attention to what is it that you’re buying. Your first concern should be that what you buy needs to be comfortable when you are holding it you should choose different kinds of materials, based on what kind of work they are suited for. For example, spoons and ladles that are made out of wood, are good to be used on an everyday basis — all your simmering and sautéing can be taken care of by them. On the other hand, when it comes to making sauces or things that require scraping out the pan with, you can call for a spatula made out of silicone, that is flexible enough to take out even that last drop. On the other hand, you could use a slotted spoon to skim off any extra liquids from your food even when you are cooking in an Indian pressure cooker.Companies like Calphalon make steel ladles that will last you for really long or even slotted spoon by Zyliss are a perfect fit.
- Another is versatile utensil that you will be using your kitchen is your tongs, as incongruous as that may sound, that’s is true! From flipping your food around without piercing your meat as would a fork, they are also very handy when you want to make a stir-fry, or mixing the dressing in your salad. They are so handy, even when you are trying to bake something that you need to flip, without having to move the tray out from the oven. And if you are doing some Indian cooking and not using a roti maker in the UK, you will find it to be essential to flip the roti around on the heat. Tongs by Cuisinart are some of the best in the business and you can expect a no-nonsense performance from them.
- Another utensil that is very versatile and you will use around the house is the whisk, because there is nothing that creates the smoothest batter than a whisk. From steel variants to silicone ones, your comfort level is what matters when you try to make this decision. Did you know from whipping cream at home which of course is an all-time favourite, you can also mash avocados with it, so your favourite guacamole has now met its companion in a steel whisk. We would recommend whisks by BergHOFF which are made out of stainless steel and can be used heavily in the kitchen.
- A mesh skimmer that you can use to sift things is also a utensil that you should own and get the best quality of superfine mesh in, in fact, in an Indian household it’s a daily fixture, where you will find the flour being sifted before being kneaded into a dough to make rotis with. So if you are using a roti maker in the UK, a sift will also be handy for you. Even if you are using spice grinder like the Revel grinder you will find that a last sift will always give you the best result, and that is so important in Indian cooking. Our recommendation for you would be the Rösle fine mesh strainers a great bet when it comes to picking the right one out and you can choose varying sizes for varying purposes.
Choosing the right kind of utensils is so important for your cookware as well, in fact, you can determine which kind of utensil will serve you well based on the shape of your cookware and market research will lead you to your best options for utensils.
