Whether you've hopped on the KonMarie bandwagon or are just trying to keep your home tidy, you're probably looking to outfit your kitchen with only the tools you really need. The most efficient home cooks don't waste space or time on specialized single-use gadgets or
cute useless items that only take up space. (Lookin' at you, strawberry-shaped strawberry cutter.)
Enter Kitchen in a Box, which gives you the must-have tools for a fully functional kitchen – and nothing more – packed inside a space-saving dish rack. What's inside? Literally everything you need but the kitchen sink.
Kitchen in a Box rewrites the script for kitchen sets. Each includes a 10-inch frying pan; a 3-quart covered saucepan; a 7-inch mixing bowl; a huge cutting board; 1-cup, 2-cup and 4-cup containers; a 5-in-1 multi-tool; plus three knives — a 3.5-inch paring knife, 5-inch utility knife and 8-inch chef's knife — and a knife block, all packed inside a streamlined dish rack. It's the Mary Poppins carpet bag of kitchen sets.
And they're actually quality supplies, too, with thoughtful features: we love how the pot has a spout and strainer lid for draining pasta and grains, how the measuring cups slide right up to the edge of the board for easy scooping — plus they come with lids that turn them into food storage containers! – and the aluminum cookware heats perfectly evenly. No surprise, we've been gifting this thing like crazy. (So far: a friend getting into cooking, a nephew starting college and a sister making it work in a — ahem — cozy studio.)
Kitchen in a Box looks even more impressive in action (we recommend keeping the volume on and making this a dance party):
I'm guessing you're already thinking of someone who'd love one.
