We all have our favorite kitchen tools. Well, here are 10 Kitchen Utensils You Can’t Live Without!



I started looking at all my many kitchen utensils and thought to myself: Hey! This is one handy kitchen utensil. If I were starting over, this would be a “must buy”. So what are these 10 magical, mystical, wonderful all powerful kitchen utensils? Well, here’s my list:

10 Kitchen Utensils You Can't Live Without


A Hand Can Opener. I will admit that I had never used a hand can opener until I met Hubby. It became an essential kitchen tool when he tossed out my electric can opener (I still hold a grudge) and forced me to use this old fashioned thing.

It comes in very handy when you are craving a can of pork and beans during a power outage.

A Grater. Once I learned how to use it without taking the skin off my knuckles, I was sold. It is grate (haha!) for zesting and shredding cheese.

Kitchen Scissors. Sometimes Hubby can be so squeamish. I was perfectly happy using my teeth, a kitchen knife or safety shears to cut stuff in the kitchen, but eventually got tired of the screams and gasps (from Hubby). So, I sucked it up and spend a car payment on these bad boys. Worth. Every. Penny. Even Hubby didn’t blink when I bought a second pair for Florida.

A Funnel. Another one of Hubby’s cockamamie ideas. I was perfectly happy taking my chances with a steady hand, but noooooooooooooo he had other ideas.

I can’t say I miss cleaning up half the contents of my recipe from the kitchen counter though.

Vegetable Scrub Brush. What is wrong with rubbing with your hands, the scouring pad or dish rag, across a vegetable to clean it, you might ask!? Nothing in my opinion. Hubby of course had other ideas so we have a couple of these scrub brushes. I actually use it on occasion and I must admit it does a fine job getting the dirt off the CSA stuff, store bought potatoes or gardening vegetables.

And when finished using the scrub brush, I can do this crazy thing where I can run it through the dishwasher on the sanitize cycle. There is a downside though: life isn’t quite as exciting when you aren’t playing Russian Roulette with soil born and crop based diseases.

Measuring Spoons. Oh come on, this one is so obvious. What are you gonna do, eyeball all your spices and extracts?

Ummm *cough*

Neeeeexxxttttt….

Measuring Cups. Hey didn’t we just go over this with the measuring spoons? Nag, nag, nag. You sound like Hubby.

Slotted Spoon. These are wonderful because now we don’t need no stinkin’ colander, right!? Or at least that’s what I tell Hubby every time we make pasta, ravioli and vegetables. Doubles as a serving spoon too! Win!

Rubber Spatula. Probably the most essential tool in the kitchen. How else could you lick the remains of cake batter after pouring it into a cake pan? Whipped cream and frosting too. The uses are endless!

Spatula. Ever wonder why these are also called spatulas? You can’t lick cake batter off these without hurting your tongue. Very confusing.

In conclusion, I have to say that the pioneers would not believe how spoiled we have become today.

    I have a little tool that is perfect for taking the stem and leaves from strawberries while leaving the berry in tact. I have no idea what it is called. It is about the size of a 1/4 teaspoon, but with a serrated edge all around it. I got it at a farm and garden store for 2/97c! I bought one at first, along with a case of fresh strawberries. As soon as I was finished with the strawberries, I drove back to town (40 mile round trip) to buy more! I ended up with a dozen of the little things and have given them as wedding/shower gifts, tied them to jars of strawberry jam… and a few other things. I did find one with another ‘tool’ on the other end of hte handle from Pampered Chef, but I still prefer my little cheapie 😉
