Amazon Wedding Registry Tip: Kitchen Tools and Gadgets

It may be that all you really need is love, but life is a little more fun with the right tools and gadgets! That’s where this week’s Wedding Gift Registry tip comes in. Cook's Tools & Gadgets In the kitchen, as in all things, nothing beats the right tool for the job. Using an ice-cream scoop as a ladle may have suited the single life just fine, but now that you have the occasion, why not create a well-oiled kitchen with a collection of helpful tools? Tools of the Trade
 If you're starting your kitchen from scratch, a multipiece utensil set is a good way to go. If you're adding pieces to a current collection, you'll want at the minimum a large spoon for stirring, a slotted spoon for straining, a spatula or two for flipping, and a ladle for ladling. A whisk for sauces and desserts, a masher, and a good pair of tongs will round out the basic set. Most cooks also find a good pair of shears indispensable, though these often come with knife sets and do not need to be purchased separately. Lastly, a can opener, a salt-and-pepper set, and a kitchen timer will more than earn their keep. Consider your storage choices, too. Are you more inclined to keep everything out of the way in a drawer, clustered in a ceramic utensil jar, or hung up tidily on a rack? Specialty Tools to the Rescue
 Whether you enjoy cooking, baking, barbecuing, or downing your food raw, a few specialty tools will come in handy time and again. Get a sturdy set of measuring spoons and measuring cups with strong handles, as well as a glass measuring cup for liquid ingredients. Vegetable peelers, cheese slicers, graters, and citrus juicers save you preparation time and add flare to your dishes. Some foods, of course, have special needs. Humor them with a few one-task wonders. If you cook a lot of meat and poultry, look into carving tools, a good meat thermometer, and a baster. Pasta forks, pizza cutters, and salad tongs always work better than their makeshift alternatives. And an apple corer, lemon zester, and melon baller can make entertaining easier and more playful. Finally, if you like fresh herbs or are particular about spices, a garlic press and a spice grinder may be perfect for your list. Beyond the Basics 
If your artillery of cooking tools is already well established, you can always register for specialty cookware items, such as a long-dreamed-of mandoline or a high-quality oil sprayer. Extra storage devices are also a good idea. A basic canister set may do the job, or you could make the leap to a vacuum-sealing unit. Kitchen carts, water coolers, wine racks, and electric slicers can also help streamline and organize your culinary lives together. If you're still at a loss over your kitchen registry, you might enjoy this kitchen registry article in our advice section, or some of our other blog posts on creating your wedding gift registry.
