The 28 Essential Tools and Gadgets Every Home Cook Needs for 2021
A few weeks ago, we launched Kitchn Essentials — our list of the very best kitchen tools that will help you cook better in 2021. (You can browse the whole thing here.) This past year, people have been cooking at home more than ever before, so we thought it’d be helpful to take a look at one of the most important sections on that list: the tools. Because while these items might not be the biggest and boldest, having the right tool for the job will make a huge difference whether you’re making breakfast, cooking a weeknight dinner, or doing some weekend baking.
Here are our picks for the must-have kitchen tools home cooks will need today and for the rest of the year to come.
Note: We’ve indicated which ones are “repeat winners,” meaning they were also chosen as our top picks in last year‘s Kitchn Essentials!
