It doesn’t take a lot of fancy kitchen equipment to prepare healthy, simple meals for my family. Here is all of my kitchen equipment:
which includes a mixing bowl, a colander, a 2 quart saucepan with lid, a stock pot with lid, a saute pan, an 8×8 baking pan and an 9×13 baking pan. Then there is a large bowl with lid that I use chiefly for transporting salads to family gatherings. There are nesting metal measuring cups and a glass one for liquids. Two cookie trays and a pizza pan. There is a baking pan with grill that came with the stove. Utensils include: vegetable masher, two turners, a large spoon, a pizza cutter, vegetable peeler, one knife (I use it for everything) scissors, corkscrew, set of measuring spoons, can opener and a spatula/scraper.
Cutlery started as a set of 8. There are still 8 forks, 7 spoons and 6 knives. I also have 3 serving spoons. There are an excess of dishes here including 14 plates, 7 bowls, 6 mugs and 6 glasses. There are two corning ware serving/baking dishes w/ lids and 2 small flat-bottomed cups. I have served dinner for 9 people at the same meal with these various dishes.
And last the food saver containers. No need to own more than can fit in the fridge, right?
