Our Best Guides To Setting Up a Kitchen

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

This past year we really took to heart the plight of the newbie cook: how do I set up my kitchen? What are the essential tools, appliances, and cookware to have at the ready? To help with this, we put together our own guides to cookware, bakeware, tools, and all the essential non-food products one needs to start off successfully in the kitchen, which we’ve included here. Rounding out this list is a post on great chef’s knives, the best multi-tasking tool every kitchen should have (but especially small ones), and why it’s worth it to splurge on one particular cooking thermometer.

Welcome to The Kitchn’s Best of 2012 roundup!
From December 17 through January 1 we are rounding up some of our favorite (and your favorite) posts from the past year.
