Cooking can give us a sense of happiness. Hearing the sound of the knife cutting on the cutting board and smelling the aroma floating in the pot make the ingredients from the most primitive state into a high-value and delicious meal .All make us feel happy and have a sense of accomplishment. But many families’ kitchens are not big enough, or many young friends who have just graduated from school and live in rental houses. There is nothing left in the kitchen except for some pots and pans. So how to buy and issue them? The following introduces which small kitchen utensils should be selected.
1.Chinese Work Frying Pan
Chinese wok The first place in the must-have kitchenware is undoubtedly a Chinese-style wok~ Stir-fry, stew, boil, and fry. These most commonly used operations can be done with a wok. It can be said that the wok is The most frequently used kitchenware.
How to choose a frying pan? We think the material, weight and size are the most important.
Regarding the material, because we need to use the pot to transfer the heat of the fire to the food, it is definitely better to have a good thermal conductivity. The thermal conductivity of metal is silver>copper>aluminum>iron>stainless steel. The price of silver and copper is relatively high. There are few woks of these two materials on the market, and the copper rust dissolving out of copper is still poisonous, and aluminum pans are easy to overflow. Aluminum is harmful to the body. Although the thermal conductivity of iron is not the best, in the cooking process, the iron pan does not contain other chemical substances, does not oxidize, and has very little soluble substance. Even if a small amount of iron is dissolved, it is good for the human body. The thermal conductivity of stainless steel is not good enough to be used for stir-frying, and the pot gas is not enough. So on the whole, iron pan is a more suitable choice. Regarding the size, a diameter of 32cm-34cm is very suitable for family use. If it is too small, the ingredients will not be able to fry, and if it is too large, it is unnecessary.
The staple food that many people eat most often is rice, so the frequency of use of the rice cooker is also high, and the rice cooker can also be used to cook porridge, cook rice, etc., the use is not small, the rice cooker is definitely one of the essential kitchenware.
The knife is definitely a must, because all the ingredients must be cut before they can be cooked. There are many types of knives. If it is a necessary one, you only need an ordinary kitchen knife and a small knife (see the picture below). The kitchen knife is used to cut vegetables and meat (not bones), and the knife is used to cut fruits, steak, pizza, butter, etc. As for the standard of a good knife, there is no doubt that it is sharp. Many tool sets include a sharpening rod, and you can sharpen it yourself if it takes a long time.
Steamer Pot is really very practical. It can be used to make steamed vegetables such as steamed fish, steamed buns, and meat dragons. It can also be used to heat leftovers. Compared with the microwave, it will not lose the moisture of the vegetables. There is nothing to say about the choice of steamer. The most important thing is that it is big and high enough. We originally had a small steamer in his house, which was slightly larger than the diameter of a plate, and each partition was not high enough, a little higher. I couldn’t fit the bowl. Later, I bought a large steamer to make steamed fish, but if the space at home is not large enough, just buy a moderately sized steamer.
The soup pot is also very practical. It is very convenient to cook a soup or stew meat that is easy to be cooked and soft. Corning pot is a good choice. It is made of transparent brown glass. The biggest advantage is that you can see the state of the ingredients when cooking, and it can be used in microwaves and ovens (but not in induction cookers). But as a soup pot, it is important to have a large capacity.
6.Other necessary kitchenware
Other necessary kitchen utensils include a shovel for cooking, a spoon for soup, a cutting board for cutting vegetables, a sink for washing vegetables and a stainless steel basin, etc.
With the above essential kitchenware, ordinary home-cooked cooking can be operated, and you will have a delicious food every day!
