    Pots and Pans 

    This is one area where less is more. Do not waste your money on sets. You will only need a large dutch oven pan, a small frying pan for omelets, nuts, cooking eggs, a larger frying pan for pancakes, sauces, curries, and a medium sauce pan.

    Measuring Cups and Spoons 

    Prepare two sets of measuring cups: one to measure liquids and another marked cups ( 1 cup, half a cup, quarter of a cup and 1/3 of a cup) for dry ingredients. It is a plus if you can also get a set of measuring spoons.

     

    Mixing Bowls 

    Mixing bowls are a necessity for basically everything. You need them for baking, making salads and other recipes that requires mixing. You can use ones that are coated with silico so they won’t stick to the bar.

    Dish Towels 

    Whether you have a dishwasher or not, you'll surely hand dry a dish or pot tat won’t fit in the dishwasher anyway. 

    Appliances

     

    Mixers

    If you enjoy baking, you definetly need to put a budget for a mixer. Our personal favorite is the kitchenaid mixers. This mixer is heavy dury. It can be used to make everything from cookies to bread and macaron. You can also purchase attachments for your kitchenaid stand mixers to grind food and make pasta. If your budget is tight you can always use another kind of kitchenaid mixers which is the kitchenaid hand mixer that can be a great substitute.

     

     

     

     

    Coffee Maker

    Everyone needs a coffee maker in their kitchen. You can buy a coffee maker big enough to make carafes of coffee or individual cups. 

     

    Blender 

    A blender is essential for making smoothies, batters and dips. 

    A food processor

     

    Like the kitchenaid stand mixers for mixers, the kitchenaid food processor is essential to make crusts, pastries and batters. It's a favorite. You will actually end up using your kitchenaid food processor way more than your blender. If you don’t make a lot of drinks, prioritize your food processor. 

     

     

    convection microwave oven 

     

    A convection microwave is a regular microwave that has at least two modes. the first mode is a standard mode that uses microwaves to heat or cook food. The second is a convection mode that transforms your microwave into a convection oven, which uses a heating element and a fan to evenly distribute heat throughout the appliance.

     

    If you have a little more budget, thin l about getting a water dispenser or a water filter for drinkable water. It is surely essential to have your daily water intake. 

    Think about getting storage containers to hold your leftovers. Prefer glass over plastic to avoid chemicals that might be toxic.

    Think also to invest in some cookbooks. 

    If you are tight on budget, forget about everything and focus on those essentials: cutting boards, knives, dutch oven, large frying pan, spatula, can openers and potholders. You can add more items along the way each time you save a little bit.
