When we gutted our kitchen, I packed up most things to keep them safe and out of the way. We ate out or used paper plates when we could.
But I still kept a few things out until the last possible moment so that we weren't completely off kilter. That's how I know these three items are ones I can't live without.
- Measuring cup: It's a 2-cup measuring cup that we got as a wedding present. I still have a set of the standard plastic ones in the four usual sizes, but I use this one a lot more -- so much easier to be able to measure large and small quantities in one shiny cup.
- Knife: This lovely Henkel knife was actually a Christmas gift to my husband from my mom. But I'm the one who uses it most. It's a great weight with the perfect blade.
- Panini maker: Okay, it's actually George Foreman cooker. But we use it almost exclusively to make perfect grilled cheese sandwiches almost once a week. Clean up is a simple wipe with a paper towel.
How about you? What's in your kitchen that you just can't live without?
