Time after time, professional and home chefs alike touted All-Clad as the very best in cookware. The Pennsylvania-based brand makes its products with high-quality American steel that will last a lifetime. We love the versatility of this 12″ fry pan that can handle up to 600 degrees temps—making it versatile enough to use in the oven or stovetop.
Every kitchen needs at least one pair of high-quality shears. I find them useful for everything from trimming meat to opening food packaging. These Wolff shears are manufactured and assembled in Indiana and are pro-grade and dishwasher safe. To avoid any chance of cross-contamination, especially when used to trim raw meat, place them in the dishwasher immediately after using.
Take your bread baking to the next level with this amazing cast-iron pan. It was designed by bakers, for bakers—and it’s made right here in the USA! Find out more about what makes this pan so special.
When you’re working with finely grated anything, this bench scraper from Massachusetts-based Dexter-Russel will be your best friend. It minimizes waste (and it would be a shame to lose even one morsel of this Homemade Graham Cracker Crust), making the task of transferring ingredients from the cutting board to the mixing bowl a tidier task.
Every cutting board collection should include at least one from Boos, a well-renowned maker based in Illinois. We love this sturdy, grooved Boos board because it’s made from American maple, which is naturally anti-bacterial and won’t harbor any bacteria. You’ll prevent cross-contamination—and have a more hygienic prep area.
Tongs are not just for grilling. Keep a pair in the kitchen for splatter-prone recipes like Fried Mushrooms Marinara and New Orleans Beignets. With a professional pair like these stainless steel Edlund tongs, manufactured in Vermont, you can also try your hand at deep-fried deliciousness without worrying about how to navigate around all that hot oil. Does the very idea make you nervous? You’ve got this. Here’s how to deep fry at home with confidence.
Salads alone are reason enough to invest in a classic vegetable peeler. And what better place to purchase one than from Rada Cutlery, an Iowa-based manufacturer with over six decades of experience. The peeler’s sharp stainless steel blade makes quick work of meal prep—perfect for this recipe for Lemony Zucchini Ribbons.
